The Merrell Adventure Run 2012 New Race Route & Obstacles

June 2011: We Survive 10K! With Running Buddy RodelR & Me.

One of the running event that I really waited this year is this run. Like what I said on my previous blogs about Merrell Adventure Run I will definitely join this again which without a doubt did and guess what I added more 11K this year compared to my last years 10K adventure run which I survive and so tomorrow June 2, 2012 I will definitely conquer 21K run on the rugged side with my running buddies Josh and Jep.

Added to the excitement to this years adventure are the new race routes, they added obstacles by putting more fun. I was able to grab photos from the race organizer and Adrenaline Multisport Group Race Director Thumbie O. Remigio and some of their teaser videos. See slide show and videos below:

This would be our 2nd trail run event in a row this month we just finished Nature‘s Trail Discovery Run – Leg 1 held at Tanay, Rizal and we were accredited by PTRA as members for being the top 100 finishers. That’s nice and what an accomplishment for us back there.

I will definitely will not miss a chance to swim on this water falls going to the finish, on this run I intended not to bring my hydration pack as it it tested that there are water stations until the finish. I can say this because last year I didn’t drink all the water in my hydration bladder. The water is ice cold as well, how cool is that.
