Hoka GTX

The Holidays is fast approaching and why not cap of your year with a Grand Timberland Xperience. It’s an All-Terrain Action featuring fresh new routes along Timberland Heights Road and Trail.  Powered by Hoka One One’s all-around running shoes Challenger ATR, which is now powered by Goretex Technology.

At Speedgoat Challenger, we gave you the dry and fast version of the trails.  Wet, Wild, Steep and Slippery was the flavor of Mafate Mudfest Trails.  Hoka GTX gives you a feel-good route with a mix of Timberland’s landmark trails and their rolling and scenic roads.  We’ll also make the environment a lot more festive in time for the chilly December season for an event that’s perfect for the family and for runners of all ages and experience level.

Hoka GTX comes in 4 categories (3K kids, 8K, 12K, and 18K) that’s meant to take you to the ups and downs of Timberland’s Terrain.  Hoka GTX is brought to you by Hoka One One and PT Events with Pinoy Trails as Media and Marketing Partner and Timberland Heights as Venue Partner.
