Amihan Sports Gear in collaboration with Active Pinas, Pinoy Trails and Team Malaya brings back Amihan 50 on December 2, 2018. Amihan 50 is now on its second year!!! From the cool Tagaytay Road Ultra experience last year, the 50 kilometer run-cation and ultra-party moves further north in the City of Pines.
Amihan also brings their patented feel-good ultra to the trail playground with the fresh scent of pine forest and the cool December Amihan breeze of Baguio City. It’s going to be a fun and challenging race as the runners get to take on the high altitude mountain-terrain of Baguio and Itogon while enjoying the sights and attraction of the Cordillera Mountain Range.
Don Antonio Marcelo Santillan of Active Pinas and Stephen Lopez Bahaghari of Team Malaya will serve as race directors. Don is the race director of Itogonia Wild Country Trail Run while Stephen is the race director of Sagada Mountain Marathon and other Team Malaya events. Active Pinas and Team Malaya together with Pinoy Trails are also the key members of the Trail Academy, which is a series of trail running clinics in Manila and Baguio.
Amihan 50 Trail Ultra joins the cluster of events in Baguio that aims to establish and connect the different trails in Baguio and Itogon. We are inviting every runner to visit and explore the beautiful trails of the region. We believe that through this event, we can encourage, inspire and motivate people of all ages and backgrounds to live a healthy and balance lifestyle by engaging in running and other outdoor activities.
