Argao hopes to promote town with trail run-A A +A
Thursday, May 8, 2014
THE third edition of Highland Endurance dubbed as Argao Trail Run will highlight the town’s natural beauty and hope to promote environment preservation on May 11 in Argao, Cebu.
Argao Vice Mayor Stanley Caminero said that by doing it this, this year’s edition will be different from the previous two events.
“Those events were on the road, which had vehicles passing along the route. Tthis one is unique because we are trying to highlight Argao’s environment. It will be a trail run through our barely-discovered roads, without hindrance from any vehicles,” Caminero told Sun.Star Cebu yesterday.
The Argao Trail run will have the 4K and 20K categories. The 4K is exclusive for amateur runners from Argao, while the 20K is open to all.
Some 120 hardcore trail runners have registered for the event but organizers expect more to sign up on site.
The run will start at Cebu Technological University (CTU)-Argao and will end in the Coal Mountain Resort.
Registration fee is for both categories, inclusive with shirt, race bib, refreshments/meal at the Coal Mountain Resort and finishers’ medal for 20K. (RSC)
