This is the first of the Asian Mountain Race Circuit along with the Fuji Mountain Race and Mt. Kinabalu International Climbathon.
This is a 35.3-km out-and-back race, starting from the Barangay Hall of Tinongdan (779 masl) in the Municipality of Itogon, Province of Benguet. The first 1.7km is a downhill run on paved road to the start of the trail (499 masl). From this point, the route to the summit is mostly uphill with a total elevation gain of 1858 meters, and loss of 195 meters. The route will showcase magnificent views of surrounding mountains, including portions of Binga and Ambuklao dams as far away as Pangasinan. The turnaround point will be at the summit of Mt Ugo (2162 masl). The 16.4-km route from the summit to the finish is a mirror image of the route to the summit, and concludes with a 1.7-km (280m vertically) ascent to the finish line at the hall of Barangay Tinongdan.
Trophies and valuable outdoors prizes will be awarded to the top 3 overall winners in both the male and female categories.
Medals and valuable prizes will be awarded to the top 3 runners, male & female in the 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and above age groups.
All finishers will receive a medal, finisher’s t-shirt and will be qualified for raffle prizes.
Top Male and Female Filipino finisher will also represent the country in the 28th Mt. Kinabalu International Climbathon on October 2014.
