Pilipinas Akyathlon returns on 10 February
The 2019 edition of Pilipinas Akyathlon is set for 10 February with a slightly modified course. The main race will be 49 km with elevation gain around the 3500 hm mark, which makes it one of the hardest 50 km races in ATM. This year, the event saw a classy field and the emergence of, amongst others, Elias Tabac. The venue, Baranggay Tinongdan, is roughly 1 hour away from Baguio, main city in the Cordillera region.
Very well-organised, the Pilipinas Akyathlon was a highlight of the early 2018 campaign in Asia Trail Master and we are already looking forward to the next edition. The event takes place close to the Cordillera Mountain Ultra and also covers Mount Ugo, but from a different side. It also serves as the Filipino Skyrunning Championships. Keen runners can also take part in a Vertical kilometre the day before.
Registration for the race is open via Raceyaya.
