SUNDAY, the 8th of September, 2013.
I left home at 2am to Jollibee, Guadalupe where I will meet CJ Paran. By past 3am, he arrived followed by Benj Termulo. We then proceeded to Michael Lafuente’s abode.
By 4am, we’re already on our way. It was a cool morning with occasional showers and thunderstorms.
We reached the starting line of the Cavinti Trail Test Run at quarter to 6am.
Familiar faces all over the place. Hardcore ones.
By 7:25am, we started moving. It was already raining hard. We have no doubt about continuing. The question is if we will last. 🙂
I was wearing an old realiable shoes for this event. My adidas Super Nova Glide 2. It now has 721 kms for mileage. Still tough. Still intact except for the small portions of the rubber soles eaten away by the mud. 🙂
The route is made of clay soil. The rain made it more sticky. That only means, I will have to carry a lot in my shoes.
The route, despite the mud, is majestic. I love the elevation profile and the view. Lots of greens, contrasting and complementing the red soil.
The entire run recorded by the majority is 24.96Kms. We didn’t count the walk back up , the push to the Jungle Fighter Truck, the added splash of mud…
My Trail record shows an elevation gain of 1,206.05 meters for this run. Again, not recording the walk climbing up.
Max elevation is 526.6 meters and the minimum elevation is 167.92 meters.
My own record (delayed due to the delayed capture of the GPS) is 24.14 kms. Done in 3 hours 47 minutes 55 seconds. Average speed is 6.35 km/h. Average moving speed is 6.99 km/h. Not bad for a hard route.
It was an epic trail run with an epic adventure.
- Nice RUN
- Boodle Fight
- Visit to the Cave
- buwis-buhay road trip thru the mud via the jungle fighter truck
I was able to get home at 10:10pm.
The walk from the river up started at 1:53pm to 3:38pm. We had to stop since the Jungle Fighter Truck can carry us at this time. We reached the concrete road of the town at 4:54pm. That’s how slow we were travelling. Anyways, by God’s loving-grace, we safely made back to where we started after a short cleaning at bumbungan resort (?)
All thanks and praise to the God Almighty!
