Pulag Ranger Station – Camp John Hay, Baguio City

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.

  • Write name, gender, birthday, nationality, and shirt size (see Asian sizing chart) AND qualifying race on the deposit slip, scan/photograph and email to 2020kotm@gmail.com (Subject: 2020 P1). Additionally, all runners are required to submit a copy of any government issued valid identification bearing the name and photo of the participant. You may blur out all other details.
  • Wait for an acknowledgement email to confirm your registration.


Runners attempting P1 must understand that challenges exist in this 100-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 P1. 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 be at least 18 years of age during event day.
  2. He/she must have officially finished a 50-kilometer or longer trail-certified race within the period April 1, 2019 – April 1, 2020. All results must be verifiable over the internet.



All participants are strongly enjoined to read and abide by the Race Rules and Guidelines.
