DBB Mountain Rockstar

Mount Batolusong is not the tallest of peaks at around 645 MASL.  It does have a majestic view of the nearby mountain range like Mt. Susong Dalaga, Mt. Banahaw and Mt. Cristobal.   The Mount Batolusong trails features several gorgeous trails, green views, rolling pastures, ridges and deep ravines. The scenery is a perfect spot for taking photos, hiking and of course, trail running.

If it were easy, it won’t be Rockstar race.  Mt. Batolusong can be a challenge especially as you start building your momentum on the climb up until the Mapatag Plateau.  While your huffing and puffing your way to the mountain peak, you’ll be rewarded with the scenic views of Sierra Madre Mountain Range.  The 12K is a newbie-friendly race with a shorter distance but the elevation can still be a challenge. Experienced runners can opt to do the 25 kilometer distance and get rewarded with more peaks and views.  Of course, the bolder ones can go for the 50 or 80 Kilometers Ultra Distance and get a fuller experience.

Race Day is on April 9, 2017 at San Andres in Tanay, Rizal.  Register Now and get to experience how to be Mountain Rockstar.
