I AM UNSUPPORTED: while there are a few number of people who believed in what I am capable of – I just can’t let them down. At least I will have to give it my best – trying.

Participants can be supported by their respective support vehicle/support crew or run as unsupported throughout the race. Runners must follow the Rules & Regulations of PAU Road Races and/or the established Rules & Regulations of the Bataan Death March 102K & 160K Ultra Marathon Races. Ignorance on these Rules & Regulations will NOT be considered as an excuse for being Disqualified in the Race. (Note: If this is your first time to join PAU Races or never been a Finisher of the BDM Races, it is your personal responsibility to browse this blog and read on the Rules & Regulations)

THE EVENT:

This event is a 3-day stage, solo running event covering a distance of 250 kilometers from Kilometer Post #0 in Luneta Park, Manila to Kilometer Post #250 at the Rizal Park in Baguio City (near Burnham Park).

MY PLAN:

Beat the cut-off for each day until the last day . . .

Stay as warm as I can during the cold mornight.

Stay as cool as I can during the hot day.

Survive with the little I have.

Conserve until the last 5 kms. 🙂

Put all and everything in the hands of God.
