Ultra Trail Mapawa opens the books!
In between our announcements regarding next year's Asia Trail Master race calendar, we of course keep focus on the upcoming competitions as well. Ultra Trail Mapawa, for instance, is the first points race on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines on 30 October. This event has gained remarkable regional popularity over the past few years and is now happy to also gain international exposure. The event takes place in the Mapawa Nature Park near Cagayan de Oro City in the northwest of Mindanao. The longest - and only - race distance that qualifies for Asia Trail Master points is the 50km trail. The terrain is varied, with a good combination of technical and runnable sections. Mapawa is a popular travel destination in its own right.
The event registration has an early bird phase until 15 September. After that it is regular pricing. Note that slots are quite limited for this race with 150 number bibs on offer for the 50k.
