If there’s one mountain aside from the knife-edge trilogy that has intimidated me with its reputation, it has to be Mt. Balingkilat.

Mt. Ugo marathon is the first leg of the KOTM series, the country’s most well known trailrunning series. This opener is 42 kilometers of established paths from Kayapa to the summit of Mt. Ugo and then back again. It was my first time to run this event and I was genuinely excited and scared.

Conquer T25 will always be a special run for me. Not only does it bring runners through the trails of the beautiful Tarak Ridge, it’s also the anniversary of my first trail run. So this was actually the run that started it all for my trailrunning days.
