Oh, I know I want to join this.  But, my rational self just tossed these questions at me: Can I do trails?  Do I have to buy trail shoes? (No, not another new expense!)  Do we have to stay overnight in Batangas?  (Didn’t I just declare my fear of extra expenses?)  Will I be fully recovered by then? And, if I do this, will I not run the risk of another injury?  Let me think about it.  

How about you—are you joining?

Where will TNF be?

TNF Course

Where in the world—or, at least, in the Philippines—is this?  

Word is, this scenic course may just be the venue for The North Face 100, the upcoming trail run that many of us are looking forward to.  According to Neville Manaois of Pinoy Ultra Runners, the race organizers should finalize details within this week or the next.

In the meantime, hang on to your laces!

The North Face 100…Ultras & Trails, anyone?

Monday, 21 April 2008  |  Race Announcements


Boy oh boy, I can hardly contain my excitement. Trail running and ultramarathoning is finally hitting our shores! Are you up for this?

Venue and other details are still being finalized for The North Face 100, but it is definitely pushing through.

The Team Pinoy Ultra Runners will be training for this event. The team will be organizing an ultramarathon training program which will start around May and they are inviting anyone interested to join them. For inquiries, please email Neville Manaois directly at

As for me, I’m eager to join the 10k trail runs. No more drooling over Rick and E-rod’s scenic courses. We’re finally having our fair share of trail runs in the country. Finally!
