Mt. Patag Eco-Adventure Trail Endurance Challenge
It's my brother's birthday today and so for his present I am writing about his favorite obsession...running.
Ever since he discovered running, my brother, "the running doc", Dr. Roberto Ledesma has not only run countless marathons and even got featured in FrontRUNNER magazine, but he is also the originator of the Silay City Marathons. His latest? The Mt. Patag Eco Adventure Endurance Trail Challenge, a 34k / 42K (solo) and 42k (relay) marathon to be held on November 3, 2012 in Silay City. It is the only full marathon in the country with a non-stop ascending route that ends on top of a mountain.
Silay City has long been an advocate for the preservation of the environment with institutionalized projects in mangrove and tree planting. In fact the Balaring Eco-Park is one of the best in the country for mangrove preservation. In relation to this, the Silay marathon was conceptualized primarily to promote more consciousness for forest preservation and eco-tourism, as well as over all physical health & fitness through endurance activities.
