Race Update 03: TNF Thrill of the Trail

I just got my race kit for this race last night from R.O.X.  It includes a race bib, a singlet, and a course map with some race information.  You have to sign a waiver and pay the registration fee to complete the registration process.  The race starts and ends at Evercrest Golf Resort, KM 71, Nasugbu, Batangas.
