Official Press Release
Vaseline Men XTERRA Philippines dares you to get off and running on a mud-spattered trail and hurdle challenging obstacles in the Vaseline Men XTERRA Mud Run, organized by Sunrise Events Inc., on May 26 at Filinvest City in Alabang.
Coming after the successful Vaseline Men XTERRA Weekend Championship in Liloan, Cebu last March 2-3, the Vaseline Men XTERRA Mud Run adds a twist to your usual mud run with the insertion of not one but a number of obstacle courses for expected 2000 participants.
Organizers said there will be 10 obstacle courses for the 10K race and five for the 5K event at the new trail course/route that official venue Filinvest City has built specifically for trail runners and bikers, upping level of hardship and to the thrill seeker, raising the fun.
“This is the first time XTERRA Philippines will be using obstacles along the race course to make it more interesting and challenging for the participants,” said Neville Manaois, head of XTERRA Philippines Technical team. “Basically we are inviting the roadies to try the trail and instead of asking them to go to the trail, we are bringing the trail to them,” added Princess Galura, Project Director for Sunrise Events Inc.
FOX International Channels, a partner and presentor for Vaseline Men XTERRA Philippines, has also prepared some surprise challenges along the racecourse and will give away cool prizes to the winners. Those who will answer the call and try their skills in the Mud Run will get Vaseline Men lootbags plus some additional items from the other sponsors and partners, plus of course a finisher’s shirt.
