X-Trail Run Pilipinas 2017: Run the Path of Most Resistance

Committed to push the boundaries of outdoor experience, Salomon, the world’s leading trail running brand, gears up for the return of the highly-anticipated Salomon X-Trail Run this July 23, 2017 at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.  An annual event organized throughout Southeast Asia since 2008—in countries including Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Philippines—the Salomon X-Trail Run instantly gained traction for its exceptional and technical trail routes that never cease to offer runners an unforgettable and fulfilling trail experience each time.

Locally, the Salomon X-Trail Run has been held in various premier venues throughout the Philippines; quickly gaining a reputation for being the most-attended trail running event in local trail running history as it managed to gather over 1,000 participants.  For its 6th year, the Salomon X-Trail Run endeavors to deliver another exceptional trail running race that will empower its participants to push the boundaries of their capabilities.

Aiming to resonate with the brand’s core purpose of inspiring people to play and progress in their chosen outdoor pursuits, this year’s Salomon X-Trail Run is sure to pack a lot of enjoyable yet exhilarating obstacles ahead.  Eyeing at least 1,000 participants, this year’s Salomon X-Trail Run will consist of two race categories, namely, Fun Trail category with 6km and 12km distances and the more technical “Mountain Run” with 24km and 32km distances.

Resisting Limits

Serving as the ultimate test for the most dedicated trail runners, the Mountain Run at this year’s race will once again simulate the challenging ascents of Skyrunning races – an arena dominated by Salomon.  The race starts at 8:00AM and 8:30AM for its 32km and the 24km categories, respectively, the Mountain Run will witness the country’s top trail runners go head to head in this iconic race.

Positioned as the most challenging category of the race, and created especially for trail runners who want to take their skills to the next level, the 24km and 32km Mountain Run will feature technical ascents and varying terrain.  From asphalt, sand, and rocks to river crossing and steep technical ascents, the route for this category is expected to yield an adrenaline-filled adventure for the racers.

The Mountain Run participants will receive a Race Kit which will include a race bib, a timing chip, a Salomon X-Trail technical jersey, a Salomon Race Cap, and Post-Race meal and products from sponsors.  Only those who finish within the cut-off time of 5 hours for the 24km, and 7 hours for the 32km, will receive a Finisher’s medal for this category.

Given the demanding nature of these distances, participants of the 32km and 24km Mountain Run must adhere to the prescribed mandatory gear which includes, a whistle, a hydration pack/belt, with at least 500mL of water.  Those with incomplete mandatory gear will not be allowed to participate in the race.

Emergency numbers will also be announced on the race day, for those who will bring their cellphones.  This is, however not mandatory.

A New Path

Designed to accommodate road runners with zero to basic experience in trail running, the Fun Trail race has proven to be an extremely worthwhile experience.  Through this category, Salomon aspires to encourage road runners to get out of their comfort zones and head straight into the world of trail running.

Meant for runners who wish to experience a different kind of rush, the 6km Fun Trail category is a great introduction to trail running.  Meanwhile, the 12km Fun Trail category targets runners with basic trail running experience and are seeking to kick their abilities in technical terrain up a notch.  Fun trail runners will receive a Race Kit which will contain a race bib, a timing chip, a Salomon X-Trail technical jersey, and a Post-Race meal and products from sponsors.  The estimated gun start for the Fun Trail race is at 1:30PM.

Throughout the event, there will be specific areas and control points located in varying locations within the course to ensure that the participants finish the race within the official time.  Moreover, the Salomon X-Trail Run will be a Green Race.  A pioneer advocacy championed by the Salomon X-Trail Run since its first series back in 2010, Salomon’s Green Race Movement will not permit the use of disposables during the event.  Participants are then required to bring their own water bottles.

Ongoing until July 15, interested runners may register in-store at Salomon SM Aura, Salomon SM Megamall, Salomon Glorietta 3, Salomon SM North EDSA Annex or online at salomonxtrailpilipinas.com.ph.  The claiming of the Race Kits will be on July 14-15 for those who registered before July 10, while those who registered on July 10 onwards may claim their kits on July 18 in Salomon stores located at SM Aura, Glorietta 3, SM North Annex, SM Megamall, or it will be delivered to their provided shipping address.

Bus provisions will also be available for the first 200 participants for an additional fee of ₱600.  To avail of the service, participants must tick off the appropriate box in the registration form and include the payment together with the race registration fee.  Each participant is entitled to a maximum of two seats only.  The meeting point for the bus service will be at R.O.X. Bonifacio High Street.

This year’s event is a result of feedback from participants from last year thus resulting in less paved roads and more trails.  With this, new trails are going to be used with the permission and guidance by SBMA and the local community.  And speaking of which, the locals will also serve as the guides during the race.
