  1. Join this one runners i assure you di nyo malilimutan ang experience dahil napakaganda ng ruta at first time para sa lahat na tumakbo sa runway, at first time din para sa lahat na makapunta o makita ang Lighthouse ng Wallace Airbase. At first time din na gagawin ng iRunners na patakbuhin ang mga runners using the Thunderbird Resort plus the runway plus the Wallace Airbase! We will post the scenery along the lighthouse, runway and Thunderbird resort in the iRunner fanpage next week and i assure you your jaw will literally drop and will surely captivate your eyes once you see the beauty and wonder of the place!
    Only the 16K challenge runners will have this once in a lifetime opportunity!
    For the info of everybody, the Wallace Airbase is a former American Airbase and still strictly guarded by the Philippine Airforce (PAF), and we are just so lucky to get the permission of PAF due to the intervention of the Executive of PPMC who is a former military official, who coincidentally IS the boss of the UAP President (Organizer of the event).
    Bottomline, don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not only to do the sport that we love but also to explore the hidden paradise of San Fernando La Union – indeed, or truly EXPLORE-RUN in every sense of the word!

  2. i really would like to be part of this run. I am an Architect here in Manila, and La Union Union is my home province. I hope i could find time talaga. i was thinking, kung luluwas ako from manial fiday night, madaling araw na ako makakarating, so takbo agad! no problem with that. but what i am concerned is where will i leave my valuables.. ayun lang tlga. Thank you.
