Ultramarathons have been slowly filling up the takbo.ph list-of-races webpage. With this year's BDM 102 and 160 editions just completed, ultramarathoners who may be "bitin" of the experience still have a lot of races this year to look forward to, namely:
April 02 - Mayon 360-degree 50-mile (80km) run (Albay)
April 30 - TNF 100k (Camsur)
May 01 - frontRunner's Labor Day Coast-to-Coast 50km Ultramarathon (Cebu)
Jun 10 - King of the Mountain 145mi (232km!!!!!) Baguio
Jun 11-12 - Chris Sports Epic Relay 250km(!!!!!!) (Subic)
Nov 11 - 240km(????!!!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!) Manila-to-Baguio 3-day Journey Run
I've read Ultramarathon Man by Dean Karnazes and I can't help but admire how ultramarathoners like him manage to finish such mind-boggling-why-did-you-want-to-run-that type of race. Probably, just stepping onto the starting line on race day is a victory already in itself.
To all the brave souls who have tackled BDM102/160 and those who'll be racing in the upcoming races above, saludo ako sa inyo!
