The 49KM Skymarathon serves as the Philippine Skyrunning National Championships. It is also an Asia Trailmaster Standard Race.
Starting at Binga Gym, runners will cross the Binga Lake Spillway and ascend via the access road to Binungaan. From there, they’ll enter a single track trail up to Salipapa Ridge, following the footpath to Sitio Lusod. The course then ascends to the summit of Mt. Ugo using the Tinongdan trail. After reaching the main summit, runners will proceed to the West Summit and then descend via the steep trail to Sitio Ambasa. The course further descends to the valley and then ascends back to Sitio Lusod to follow the Tinongdan trail down to Cayoco and follow the village pathways to loop back to Binga.
This is a challenging course reserved for serious skyrunners. There will be intermediate cut offs along the course and runners who miss the cut off time will not be allowed to continue the race

Fly to Clark (e.g. from Singapore or Hong Kong), if you can, as you cut the bus drive to Baguio by half then. Alternative is Manila. From Manila there are many busses that go to Baguio. V Liner is a recommended bus service with several direct lines.
Easiest is to book yourself in a hotel or guesthouse in Baguio and take the event shuttle bus on the morning of the race.
