The North Face: Thrill of the Trail at NUVALI, Laguna

Running is becoming a common sight in different part of the nation. Its boom in the middle of 2009 has sprouted different entusiast to join. I for one is a newbie in this sport. Now I become more aware of different running event and clinic in the metro.

The Thrill of the Trail

This is the 3rd edition in the Thrill of the Trail running series that will be held at heart of NUVALI at Laguna. This is to promote trail running in the Philippines. The initial legs have been done in Nasugbu, Batangas and Cagayan de Oro,Mindanao with Bohol, Visayas next in line.

The 11K Couples Category

In this leg of the running series, a new category has been open specially for couples (in the spirit of Valentine’s Day as it happens on Feb.14). An 11K couples category is being introduce to the race. Anyone (no gender restrictions) and everyone is invited to join. This is an OPEN CATEGORY meaning no age group, husband & wife, girlfriend/boyfriend, and partners will be able to join. The only requirement is to cross the finish line together while holding hands (how sweet).

Thrill of the Trail is also used by trail running enthusiasts and endurance runners as a tune-up for The North Face 100 Trail Running Ultra Marathon, the 1st and only trail running ultra marathon series in the Asia Pacific which currently spans 5 countries (Australia, China, Philippines, Japan and Taiwan).
