Fearless Challenge, Endless Fun

"Fearless Challenge - No Surrender" – This is how threatening Immuvit dubbed the first leg of their race trilogy. On the contrary, the event turned out to be an endless fun and excitement from gun start up until the finish line. Its obstacles sprinkle a different flavor of fun and excitement. La Mesa Nature Reserve as its race venue provides new and enchanting trails to run onto. This was one great experience a runner shouldn't miss and I’m glad I didn't.

Some could have hesitated to register upon seeing the cut-off time. Two hours for 5K and 4 hours for 10K? These numbers personally intimidated me as a runner. It gave me an idea how hard this would be. But again, my assumption was (as always) wrong. Maybe they meant that participants would surely ‘want’ to stay that ‘long’ on the course to enjoy longer. :))

I wouldn’t do much of a detailed story about my race. But if you want to find a nice read about this event, I would suggest you check and read this interesting play-by-play by the running atom.

  2. That looks like a fun race! What was you time, if I may inquire? ;-)


    1. I clocked 1:30+ on the 10K category... But we stayed longer and waited until they announced the winners. Thanks Sha!

  3. Noel, What's your category on leg 3? I'm torn I want 8K lang coming from injury kaso ang late ng start ng 8K so baka 16K ulit ako. hahaha

    1. 16K n din siguro Franc. :) Walang training pero 16K would be great.. Thanks bro! :)
