3 Reasons to Run Double Terrain Challenge 2017

Can a runner excel on both roads and trails? Many people probably think that they have to pick one - that they can’t be good at both trail and road racing, but there are some who believes that few have successfully done so, because they say, “You really have to recalibrate your mind, and that can be challenging taking two birds in one stone.”

For road runners or even hikers, trail running represents the next frontier, with a whole new host of rewards. It allows you to see the best that nature has to offer—up close and human-powered. If you’ve never tried a trail race, adding one, or more, to your race schedule will give you the incentive to vary training, broaden your scenic vistas and add new skills to your running tool box, so #BeTrailReady for some distinct differences.

Getting out of your comfort zone can provide a path for improvement and discovery. This time, you don't have to choose between road and trail because this event challenges you to do both. Here are three reasons why you should run Double Terrain Challenge. 

You get to run along Chasing Waterfalls.
As the water continues to fall down, runners should expect to find a mixture of conditions on trails in the park as you come across this waterfall while running. This chasing waterfall is part of the route of Double Terrain Challenge. 
Tungtong Falls

You get to try challenging yourself running on both Road and Trail.
Trail running is typically harder than road running. Because of the varying terrain, inclines, and often times many curves in the trail, your average pace per mile will likely be slower than your pace on paved road. This time, transitioning from road to trail will be more challenging for every runner as they get to run on both roads and trails. 

You get to run on a scenic setting with sea of clouds at your back, awesome right?
Not much can compare to the enormous sense of achievement you’ll experience when you run across the scenic trails of Tanay, Rizal. They will capture your imagination with their promise of beauty and adventure. You can also witness sea of clouds and the iconic landscape of Sierra Madre Mountain Ranges.
