AMIHAN 50 Trail Ultra
Amihan brings back the 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.
