I stumbled upon Jazzrunner’s post on the Merrell Adventure Run route, and I have to say I am really looking forward to this one. This will be my first ever trail run!
I also read the article from Philippine Star, saying that the route will include 5 consecutive mud pits and a 200-meter river traverse. I expect to end this run exhausted, filthy, and caked in mud. I have no illusions of breaking a PR here. My thighs and calves will probably be sore and I would probably have scratches on my arms and legs. I should probably bring a first-aid kit in my car!
Aside from Jazzrunner’s post, pictures of the route are also available at Merrell’s FB page.
