This is actually my Second time to Race but first timer for this event…. The Trail 2016 Is Roughly 35km With Over 900m Of Climbing In The Mountains Of San Mateo, Rizal. Most Of It Is Singletrack, Much Of It Technical. The Course Is Roughly The Same As Last Year’s Trail 1500, Though We’ve Added Obstacles And Options.

 These ‘A-lines’ (obstacles) and ‘B-lines’ (options) were added in line with global trends in cross country racing to encourage riders to improve skills as well as fitness. Obstacles include drops and rough sections which require a high level of technical skill to clear, and we strongly advice doing them in practice first to avoid crashing during the race for everyone but pro-level riders. Most racers will take the B-lines, or options, that go around these obstacles but take a longer route (approximately a minute). The organizer reserves the right to make changes to these obstacles in the interest of safety.
 It’s a tough, epic race that took the average racer last year 3.5 hours to finish – and over a hundred didn’t finish (though 1,100 did).


The Course Starts And Ends Near The Timberland Gate, Extending To Pintong Bocaue. This Is The Latest Version, But Some Tracks Are Still Being Worked On And Are Subject To Change. At Present, It Is Approximately 35km Long With 920m Of Climbing. Most Of It Is On Singletrack, Much Of It Is Technical.

Hydration Stations Are At Start/Finish, Kms 8 (End Of Blue Zone), 17.5 (Near Pineda Gate), 25 (Boom Before Sapinit Climb), And 26 (Chapel).

Cutoff Point Is On Top Of Nursery Climb, 5 Hours After Your Wave’s Start (I.E. 7:00am Start = 12:00pm Cutoff, 7:20am Start = 12:20pm Cutoff).

Unfortunately I DID NOT FINISHED the race because of the Cutoff time..!!!

See yeah Next Year…
