BATULAO Chronicle

I was early at the meeting place.

 

We should be meeting at 4am inside KFC Coastal. I was there before 3am. It was a cold morning. I was right about bringing a thick sweatshirt. By 4am when the group is already complete, we headed to the Bus Terminal at Coastal Mall. To Evercrest! The jump-off for Mount Batulao. We ate breakfast first at a nearby store whose name I forgot. They have a delicious-looking menu.

By 6:28am, we’re already walking to the gate of Evercrest. We opted not to get a guide. We’d just ask around – if ever we get lost. We did! LOLS.

Anyways, the route to Peak 8 was a bit easy. Going to Peak 9 up to the Summit was a bit challenging already. Top that with the Rappeling down from the Summit to the old trail’s Camp 7!

From Camp 7 to 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 – it was all just easy. We even stopped to eat. Camp 1 to Peak 1 is where the challenge is. 🙂

The heat of the sun made it all challenging.

It was a relaxed adventure. Lots of time to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. We stopped to rest. We took our time on the descents and ascents. No pressure at all.

CAVINTI Marathon

My CM42 Story

I wrote a reminder to myself before this big event.

Reminder to myself. :) With full stress on the Mandatory Gears.

Trash Bag should be included
Head Lamps not mentioned but I think I will need one.
Water Cup
Handheld Bottle I think is not a good option in case of a strong rain (I will be holding a walking stick!)
Poncho for me (to protect my back from extreme cold)
Visor to cover my eyeglass
2 liters of fluid (my choice of : Mogu-Mogu, Chuckie, Moo, & Water)
Extra Joss Sachets, MILO R2 Sachets
Gum Candies

I failed to bring something important due to time constraints. It’s something I will pay for later too.

Around 8pm of Saturday night, the 21st of September, I was in bed with a fever and colds. The run is in my mind – but I was ready to DNS if ever. BY 10:30pm, after taking medicines and resting, I was able to get up and pack my things. I knew I can do it. I believe I can. I do have high hopes that my shoe will be up to the challenge.

It was an instant healing after my wife prayed for me.

By near 12 midnight, my daughter send me to the gate and I hailed a jeepney to Guadalupe.

Andro Garcia was already in Jollibee too when I get there. A few minutes later, Mike Lafuente arrived. Thanks to him. We have a ride to Porac on this rainy night.

We stop-by McDonald’s Lakeshore for a short snack. Benj and Damien already there too.

I knew I will need a Trekking Pole given the weather. I did bought one for myself from Benj. (and it turned-out to be the wisest decision of the weekend!)

The rain poured heavy and continued even as we start the race.

@5:27am, the race started. I finished at 3:35pm. A  good 10 hour 7 minutes 45 seconds. See the segment of my run/walk/rest, as follows:

  1. 5K in 00:50:21. Idle time of 00:02:25. Average Speed is 6.0 kph. Max Speed is 10.7 kph. Max Elevation is 519 meters. Elevation Gain = 483 meters.
  2. 5K in 01:01:46. Idle time of 00:06:22. Average Speed is 4.9 kph. Max Speed is 11.5 kph. Max Elevation is 862 meters. Elevation Gain = 475 meters.
  3. 5K in 01:13:49. Idle time of 00:16:01. Average Speed is 4.1 kph. Max Speed is 9.1 kph. Max Elevation is 1142 meters. Elevation Gain = 612 meters.
  4. 5K in 01:14:33. Idle time of 00:16:59. Average Speed is 4.0 kph. Max Speed is 8.3 kph. Max Elevation is 1244 meters. Elevation Gain = 400 meters.
  5. 5K in 01:32:48. Idle time of 00:26:26. Average Speed is 3.2 kph. Max Speed is 6.8 kph. Max Elevation is 1185 meters. Elevation Gain = 326 meters.
  6. 5K in 02:03:15. Idle time of 00:54:27. Average Speed is 2.4 kph. Max Speed is 6.6 kph. Max Elevation is 1083 meters. Elevation Gain = 488 meters.
  7. 5K in 00:58:51. Idle time of 00:07:32. Average Speed is 5.1 kph. Max Speed is 9.2 kph. Max Elevation is 928 meters. Elevation Gain = 202 meters.
  8. 5K in 01:06:34. Idle time of 00:13:16. Average Speed is 4.5 kph. Max Speed is 8.4kph. Max Elevation is 583 meters. Elevation Gain = 206 meters.

NOTE:

Idle time is my breather time – stops and rests to take a deep breath and recover. The longest one is due to the phone that fell somewhere. I had to backtrack and find it, then proceed. Thank God it’s safe and covered in plastic when it fell.

Average Speed fell terribly in the clay-part of the route where a lot have fallen due to sliding. I did slide but not once did I fall.

At the peak turn-around where it is most cold, I started to chill. (This I think is the reason why my cough and colds returned the night after the race when I get home)

Good thing, Aldean have a ready coffee. Hot, to boast!

After a few chat and photo ops, we head back…down to the falls. As recorded too, I wasted a lot of time. I did find it hard to run down the clay mud. It’s too slippery and I can’t afford to fall down. So I walked and moved slowly and cautiously.

By the time I reached AS3, I run down…all the way down to the falls. Yes, for a ribbon. Then walked as fast as I could up. With frequent stops to breathe.

At AS3, I knew I could beat the time. I have 4 hours till cut-off and I am sure that I could run all the way down – except for the clay-muddy parts again.

Same distance from the Start, I clocked at AS3 in 1 hour 51 minutes. Now I am going back to Finish from the same point.

I was running at a good pace. I do not intend to take so much rest nor slow down – but then the muddy part really does it again. 🙂 Thanks to the Trekking Pole.

I have to mention. The only aid station I was able to get water from the Peak is AS3. Thanks to CJ Paran and Juvy Pagtalunan! (Bored-mates on duty!)

At the last 6K aid station, I was interviewed…I was also given a Mountain Dew by Jerome Jamili. Thanks to Jing, Mama-o and Sheryl, and Jayson too!

At the last 3K aid station, I took time to eat adobong liempo and rice. I have time, and I know it. The result may not show it, but I did have a good run. Idle time is not that too much. This is a hardcore route. It’s harder than any average trails I have been to. All thanks to Otek and Ok Ok Runners.

Finally, after crossing the tunnel, I ran at a good pace to finish.

Official Result is out. As recorded, I clocked at 10 hours 7 minutes at the finish line. 🙂

All thanks and praise to God Almighty!

Pahabol: THIS IS MY 1st MARATHON for the year since December 4, 2011.

  • Trash Bag should be included
  • Head Lamps not mentioned but I think I will need one.
  • Water Cup
  • Handheld Bottle I think is not a good option in case of a strong rain (I will be holding a walking stick!)

Course Description

42 kilometers and 22 kilometers
Elevation gain/loss: 2,500 meters for 42K
This is part of the CM50 race series aimed at providing a glimpse of and qualifying races for those intending to join the tougher and longer CM50. The route covers the hilly route of CM50 passing through the iconic Miyamit Falls where the 22k runners will make a turnaround while the 42k runners will have to continue and proceed close to the “peak” (3kms near the caldera of Mt. Pinatubo) before heading back to the Start/Finish line.

RACE VENUE

Start/Finish line will now be on the AyalaLand development site in Porac, Pampanga, the venue of http://explorac.ph/.

Course Condition

Mostly fire trails, dirt road and single tracks.

Time: 4:30am to 4:30pm for 42K
4:30am to 3:30pm for 22K (NOTE:
Additional 1 hour now due to added kilometers.

Time barrier:12 hours for 42K

11 hours for 22k

Assembly Time:   3am, 22 September 2013
Pre-race Briefing: 4am, 22 September 2013

Race packet distribution starts at 3AM or earlier, 22 September 2013 at the Start/Finish area. Other distribution site will be announced if needed.

Aid Stations and Cut-Off Times

Because of the remoteness and accessibility of the course, 3 aid stations will be strategically placed:
  • Aid Station 1 (AS1) is located at KM8 from the Start /Finish line. There is a small community of Aeta in this place.
  • Aid Station 2 (AS2) is at the junction going to the Falls and peak or KM11.
  • Aid Station 3 (AS3) is more or less KM18 or 4kms away from AS2. Due to remoteness of this station, fluid and food are limited.
IMPORTANT: Runners are strongly advised to carry at least 2 liters of fluid en route to the peak and back to AS2 since fuel and fluid at AS3 are limited.

Distances of aid stations are approximate

Drop Bags: Runners will have to deposit their drop bags on 22 September 2013 not later than 3:40AM at the Start Line. Drop bags are accessible at Aid Stations 2 (junction going to the Falls and peak). Drops bags must be made of sturdy material to withstand rough handling and transportation. Runners will have to mark their drop bags with their race number and name. Drop bags will have to be retrieved by the runners after race at the Finish Line not later than 5:30PM. Otherwise, they will be disposed of accordingly and the race organizer, staff, crew or volunteers will not incur liability therefor. Race organizer, his staff, crew and/or volunteers will not be responsible for damage of the drop bags or spoilage of their contents.

CUT-OFF TIMES

  • Falls – All 42K runners must pass through the Falls on their way back to Finish line from the Peak. Note: It should be AFTER the peak and not before. Cut off is 2pm for both 42K and 22K runners. ALL RUNNERS MAY BATHE IN THE POOL (Falls) IF RACE TIME BARRIER PERMITS (Translated: You will not get DNFed!).
  • Peak – All 42K runners must reach the peak not later than 1PM after which the crew/marshals will start to descend for race venue. Do not proceed if you cannot make it to the peak on time. Failure to make it on or before 12 noon is DNF.

 

Mandatory Gear

The following will be checked before distribution of race bib:
  • Fully-charged working mobile phone containing the number of the RD +639175660106. It is required that mobile phone is on at all times during the duration of the race.
  • Water carrier (bladder, hand-held bottles, etc.) of at least 500ml.
  • Water cup – Please be reminded that the aid stations will not provide water cups to protect the trail and you should not drink from the bottles! Crew will be advised not to serve any drinks unless water cups are presented by runners.

Trekking poles are allowed but optional. Runners may include trekking poles in their drop bags to be accessed in AS2. Highly recommended due to elevation profile and some slippery sections.

Getting There

Venue is at http://explorac.ph/.  Participants may get to Porac via the Clark International Airport in Clark, Luzon then hire an airport cab or board a jeepney to get to Angeles City to Porac Town and then at the race site. Other runners can get to the race venue by bus to Dau, Pampanga bus terminal and then jeepney to Angeles City then to Porac and finally race site. It is strongly recommended that runners car pool going to the race.

NOTE: Passage via SCTEX coming Manila or South is now available which is the fastest way to get to the race site. Take SCTEX Subic-bound then exit at Porac. Race site is on your right 300-400 meters from the toll gate. Just follow the end of the toll gate railings. There is a CM42 logo on the road to point you to the right direction.

FREE LIMITED RIDE

For their convenience, a jeepney will be provided to ferry runners from Dau bus terminal in Pampanga to the Start and back. It will leave at exactly 3AM from Dau and will return after the awarding ceremony. FIRST COME/FIRST RIDE BASIS.
