Scenic Places For Running You Must Visit

Let’s admit it, running can sometimes be dreadfully boring!  But it doesn’t always have to, especially if you’re running on picturesque locations.  I believe that the best way to explore a place is on foot, and here are some of the most scenic places I’ve seen through running.

Outrun the Road, Outlast the Trail

From novice to advanced trail enthusiasts, it was another event-filled weekend as runners of varying capabilities participated in the highly-anticipated Salomon XTrail Run 2014.  As a performance brand for mountain sports, Salomon has been consistently the top of mind for many when it comes to trail gear.  The brand becomes top of mind as well, when it comes to outdoor endurance sports such as trail running.  This was particularly eminent in the recently-concluded Salomon XTrail Run 2014, which was held in Hamilo Coast in Batangas for the second time around.  “The Salomon X-Trail Run is a global event, held in various countries annually.  It is the fourth time that we’ll be holding it, and we’ve once again chosen Hamilo Coast as our venue.  Aside from being a very scenic destination, Hamilo Coast also offers a variety of trails for our runners with its mixture of sand, rocks, fire roads, …and so far it seems to be a perfect venue to hold a trail running event.” shares Janice Tanada, Salomon brand manager.

At the Trails of Hamilo Coast (Salomon XTrail Run Chronicles)

Hamilo Coast is just beautiful, but hiding behind its scenic coastlines and terrains lie some of the toughest trails I’ve ever been to, and the recent Salomon XTrail Run was just one of the toughest trail runs I’ve ever had.

Leaving Metro Manila so early in the morning…
