Pilipinas Akyathlon 2018

Time to play in the Sky with another round of Skyrunning in 2018.  Pilipinas Akyathlon returns on February 4, 2018 at the Indigenous Peoples’ Cultural Heritage Site in Binga, Tinongdan with a 10 kilometer trail run, a 25 kilometer mountain run and a 46 kilometer Skymarathon that will take you to the peak of Mount Ugo at 2,150 MASL.  It is the premier Skyrunning event in the Philippines. Pilipinas Akyathlon is organized by the Philippine Skyrunning Association and the Local Governments of Tinongdan and Itogon according to the rules of the International Skyrunning Federation.

All categories start and end at the Indigenous Peoples’ Cultural Heritage Site in Binga, Tinongdan. The scenic courses feature rice fields in remote villages, unspoiled pine forests, and hanging bridges crossing the mighty Agno River. The SkyMarathon reaches the summit of Mt. Ugo and is recommended for experienced trail runners.  Runners must be prepared for steep ascents and descents and various natural challenges presented by the trails.  Each runner is expected to be self-sustaining, with their own hydration gear and nutrition; however, medical/aid & water refilling stations will be available in multiple points along the route.

Register is now open via Raceyaya.Com and Lagalag Stores in Baguio (Lower Ground Floor, Casa Vallejo) and Manila (Lower Ground Floor Main Bldg, SM City North Edsa).
