Can’t-Miss Trail Race: Soleus Cross Country Challenge

If you’re itching to try trail-running but haven’t quite decided which race and venue to do the initial salvo, then the long search is over. Why should SOLEUS CROSS-COUNTRY CHALLENGE on July 10, 2016 be your ideal maiden trail race?

  • The route-venue in Pintong Bukawe, San Mateo Rizal boasts of the complete basic trail package and more: crackling leaves under endless trail ways and grassy roads, ultra-hilly terrain to challenge your endurance further and upbeat river crossings.

  • But it doesn’t stop there. How about having the Ten Commandments giant tablet as backdrop to your Starting Line?

  • While it will not be expert-recommendation, you do have a choice of either doing a shortie 12K or a stamina-busting 21K. Whichever distance is no small feat but when you race alongside friends and race stalwarts like “Tale of the Trail”‘s Franc Ramon, you might be surprised that your first half-marathon trail race was not that scary after all.
  • It’s a SOLEUS event. Every Soleus event equates not just FUN but premium souvenirs for bragging rights!


    If you’re craving for some trail-loving right now, then make your move to SIGN UP and get confirmed!

    And finally, if you are seriously competitive and want to satisfy that trail-addiction, practise-run the trail routes and enjoy the RACE twice, if you dare!

    Lastly some important early reminders for those already registered:

    See you all the the Starting Line, in fulfillment of the 11th commandment: Thou Shalt race fairly, squarely and safely in this GREAT RACE!
