After completing Condura, my next goal race is the Mizuno Infinity Race in April. Then, Dingdong sent us an email about a race in UP. I was originally thinking about the 21K at the Fort but when I read the brief about this race, I changed my plans.
There are a lot of race categories but I’m interested in the 15K Eliminator Pursuit. In this category race participants will run a course that will take them to UP Diliman’s best kept running course secret – the Heartbreak Route. It is a killer. I don’t think it is as mean as as McKinley Hill because it’s just one steep downhill and one steep uphill but you will feel the burn.
But wait, there’s more … it’s actually a 2 in 1 race.
When asked about the cut off time, race organiser Edward Kho said, “And the cut-off, yes there is, to make it more exciting and the medal more meaningful. So 15K is actually two races rolled into 1. The race to the half-way mark within 45min and the actual finish cut-off time of 1hr45min. I studied most of the races with 15k and 21k and almost 70% of the racers could possibly attain this.”
Oh plus, this is one of the cheapest race to date. It’s only Php350.00.
The race director is the same guy who did the Corregidor Challenge. I wasn’t able to join that one so I don’t know the quality of his races. But this is something new and I’m ready to face his challenge. To be sure, I will run with my water flask.
And you thought you could rest after Condura… it’s time to start training again boys and girls. 😀
