The 2016 Cardimax-Clark Ultramarathon: Harness Your Own Energy

save-the-date

The second one definitely kicks off the tradition and season of great ultramarathons.

Just on its second edition this year, the Cardimax – Clark Ultramarathon has earned for itself the accolade of being a premier ultramarathon event in the country, slated on the 3rd and 4th  of September, 2016 at the Clark Freeport Zone.

The partnership between Cardimax L-Carnitine and the Clark Ultramarathon team is a synergy of purpose; finally a product that promotes and supports the goals of runners competing in endurance events. Cardimax L-Carnitine is a supplement that is ideal for endurance athletes; it helps in mental improvement and physical performance. It also reduces lactic acid accumulation and aids fast recovery. poster 0412

 

This year’s theme being Harness Your Own Energy, the message to ultramarathoners is LOUD and CLEAR:

Go Longer.  It is an ideal race for the aspiring and newbies to go beyond a marathon distance (entry level distance 50K) or do their first century ultra-distance.  It is no wonder why long-distance athletes consider the race as an avenue to test and even improve their endurance levels, while enjoying the tough but scenic course.

Go Faster. The race is set to attract top marathoners and ultramarathoners in a challenge to break their PRs and compete with the creme-dela-creme. The race will reward top performances in individual and team categories.

Go Together. More than a race; this is a journey designed to inspire each other in the sport.  This offers an 18-week Training Calendar and a race day event where runners can learn from each other and from coaches, fitness professionals and other partners. Together, our runners will “dig deep” and explore the innate, possibly dormant, strength inside of them. Everyone will experience the special camaraderie and friendship among competitors, volunteers, race officials and spectators.

PRE-RACE ACTIVITIES

Training activities commence on May 1, 2016. Prior to this, runners should have passed the strict qualification requirements for the race.

Upon registration, participants are provided an 18-week recommended training program in preparation for the race.  These activities will be spearheaded by the organizing team, volunteer running teams, seasoned ultramarathoners, partners and sponsors.
