Missing the fresh air? How about mountains? My dear folks, do you want to experience something irreplaceable this summer? Did you train enough to run an extra mile? Get ready and challenge yourself to run the 2nd Mankayan Mountain Marathon - #OnlyForTheBrave.

In the olden days, Mankayan was a thickly forested area wherein hunters from neighboring places frequented in search for wild animals.

According to stories of the old folks passed from generation to generation, there were hunters from “Awa”, Buguias who pursued and harassed a deer in the thick forest of Nangkayang. The deer fell into a deep ravine where the hunters found it. They spent the night roasting and feasting on the deer meat leaving their fire burning through the night. The following morning, the hunters were surprised to find out that the rocks they used to elevate their fire were malleable. They brought home samples of these rocks and fashioned tools and artifacts out of it and bartered them with commodities coming from the lowlands.

Rich Spanish businessmen from the lowlands took notice of these products and asked the native traders where they got their copper. The native traders simply replied “Nangkayang” which means way up to the eastern mountains. “Nankayang” eventually became “Mankayan”. – benguet.gov.ph
