HARDCORE HUNDRED MILES

Kayapa, Nueva Vizcaya

Cancelled

In the light of the present situation and its many uncertainties, we are left with no recourse but to make a painful decision to indefinitely postpone these remaining events in the 2020 KOTM calendar. Be that as it may, all slots are rolled over, guaranteed locked and valid until such a time the events will be conducted.

Rest assured that when all things shall return to normalcy, when all the restrictions to mobility are lifted, when all supply lines are open, when everyone shall have settled back into their regular training routine, and when we shall not be a burden to our venue hosts and one another, we shall return and be the better for it.

In the meantime, we continue to urge everyone to keep on praying for all of mankind, especially the afflicted and their caretakers, those who lost their battles, and our leaders.

There is nothing we wish you and your loved but the best, the strength and courage to overcome these challenging times. We are in this together and let us all fight a good fight. Keep the faith.

And until we – participants, partners and sponsors – meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hands.

RACE ROUTE AND REFRESHMENT STATIONS

Hardcore 100 Miles (H1) is the first 100-mile trail race in the Philippines. It belongs to an exclusive club of 100-mile races worldwide that have a total elevation gain of more than 35,000 feet. (Total elevation gain is approximately 37,098 feet, while total elevation loss is around 37,112 feet). The ITRA-certified race meets the international standards of a trail course, with less than 10% of the route made up of concreted roads, and the rest, of single track trails, dirt/gravel paths, dry stream beds, grasslands, farmlands, forest trails and hanging bridges. It takes runners to two major peaks: Mount Pulag Tower (2800masl) and Mount Ugo (2150masl), and several hills and hamlets in between.

Following is a list of the villages/landmarks runners will pass. (Given the location, terrain characteristics and varying weather conditions, allow for discrepancies in distances/data recorded during race day). Aid/refreshment Stations, Cut-off Points and Drop Bag Stations are also indicated. Hot meals/soup will be served alternatively in the stations.

Runners must leave the Cut-off Stations at the exact times indicated or earlier, whether or not they have accessed their drop bags, refilled or eaten, otherwise, they will no longer be allowed to continue with the race and will be declared as DNF (Did not Finish).

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Runners attempting H1 must understand that challenges exist in this 160-kilometer trail race and they must be prepared to make decisions for their own safety under uncertain conditions without expectation of immediate assistance due to the inaccessibility of many areas to any type of motor vehicle, the remoteness of the race route and the distance between villages/households. While there is no guarantee that the runner is prepared for every eventuality, finishing a qualifying event gives some evidence of being prepared for H1. Additionally, it also improves the chances for a runner to finish the event.

For the safety and welfare of all those involved in this event, participants must meet the following requirements:

 

  1. He/she must have officially finished a 100-kilometer or longer trail-certified race within the period May 1, 2019 – May 1, 2020. All results must be verifiable over the internet.
  2. OR He/she must have officially finished the 2019 Clark-Miyamit 50 Miles, 2019 Mapawa 50 Miles, or 2020 Mount Kalautungan 50 Miles.
