What to Expect at Pinatubo Columbia Eco Trail Run?

Are you ready for Columbia Eco Trail Run Pinatubo? Well, THINK AGAIN!

As I was researching about the route a week ago, I saw this on Columbias Facebook Page:

Columbia Trail Route (Click the image to enlarge)

The places mentioned sounds familiar to me as I was able to visit these places during a Lakbay Norte 3 Tour last January 2012.

Without further ado, I just want to share 10 photos I took during my visit at the race venue. Aboard 4 x 4 jeeps we are juggled while clinging on the vehicle’s frames at the back. How much more if we run this on foot?

One word: EPIC!

Look at that stream crossing. The venue is also a haven of our Aetas brethren

Look at the dust from the Pinatubo ashes. You should bring something to cover up

How the 4 x 4 are dwarfed by the magnanimous rock-covered shrubs formations. Really amazing!

Prepared to get not only wet, but muddy!

Its scenic but unforgiving… PREPARE!

But no worries, its fun! Really fun.

Look at the amazing gorges you will run through. Exciting right?

Rocks, sand, river and streams will challenge the runners to the highest level. Add the heat too!

The 4 x 4 jeeps find it hard to navigate the trail, how much more our feet?

But then again, how can you find BLISS like this if you don’t try the Pinatubo trails.


This will surely help you make last minute changes with your running gears and game plan.


Here’s the event poster if you need it:


I will be joining the 12K race, hope to see yah guys!
