The Philippines' SuperTrail: CM 50 NOW open for registration
The last SuperTrail of the 2016 Asia Trail Master series has opened its registration. The 6th edition of Clark-Myamit Falls Ultra in the Philippines will take place on Sunday, 27 November and offers the traditional 50 miles main race, and the shorter 60km B-race. Pay attention: the regular registration is limited to 300 spots!
CM 50, as it is often abbreviated, has developed into a genuine classic on the Asian calendar and the event organisation was rated very highly by both domestic and international participants last year. While the race course is relatively straight-forward, out-and-back to the Myamit Falls, the atmosphere before, during and after the event are exemplary. Although not the final race on our Asia Trail Master calendar, the 50 SuperTrail bonus points for finishers will be significant for runners aiming for the championship. That includes Manolito Divina, current leader in the points standings, and who is very much at home in this race. He won it the past two years!
The main race is 50 miles or 82 km long and has a total elevation gain of approx 3100 Hm. There is a cut-off time of 18 hours, and 16 hours for the shorter 60k race distance.
