This weekend, Ayala Land and R.O.X. are staging the Explorac Trail Run in Porac, Pampanga. For now, sadly, it’s an invitational event only. Even sadder, I can’t make it, but my crayzee and super fast ultramarathoner friend, Reylynne dela Paz, will be our official Run-porter for this race and she’ll be taking photos and sharing her race experience by next week. (Stay tuned!) The good news is that there will definitely be more events in this new trail running venue, especially with such great companies to support it.
- The course map for the Explorac Trail Run -
I heard that the course has a flat to hilly terrain and majority of it is hard surface. The trail features wet/dry river bed, if not all, are heavily silted by mudflow due to Mt. Pinatubo’s eruption way back in 1991 and succeeding lahar flows. In some areas, a moderate steep climb will be experienced along the rough terrain portion and huge lahar track will potentially challenge a runner’s trail running skills. There will be opportunities to run under the SCTEX bridge and pass beside waterfalls.
Woah. Sounds like a great adventure. I can’t wait for future events in Porac!
