Akyat: Halcon via Lantuyang

 

Thursday to Monday
March 30 to April 2, 2018

I recently finished a multi-day hike up the country’s (allegedly) toughest mountain, Mt. Halcon or Sialdang. It was definitely a hike worth remembering, so I’ll be re-telling some events here.

Takbo: Cordillera Mountain Ultra 2018

Sunday
March 4, 2018

Exactly a month after the tedious Akyathlon 2018, I found myself once again on the starting line of an ultramarathon. Once again, we were bound for the summit of Mt. Ugo, and once again, I was in for a lot of pain. How did it ever come to this?

Marshal Duties: CM50 2017

It’s been a while since I’ve done some race photography and it’s my first time doing one for the trails. Since I was injured and lacked a lot of training, I officially became a race marshal/photographer in this year’s edition of the CM50.

Sunday
November 5, 2017

Takbo: Miyamit Falls 42 2017

Sunday
October 1, 2017

This was one of my most anticipated trail runs of the year. The keyword there is “was.” After completing a 100km run earlier this April, I was looking forward to trying out the trails in Pampanga and hopefully get a grand slam with the MF42 and CM50 trail runs. Most of my harkor friends have already done this series and they said it’s a good experience and a must-do for trailrunners. Well, it certainly was an experience.
