Run an Ultramarathon: 1st Mount Asog 360 50K Ultramarathon

Also known as a Character City, Iriga is a home of warm and friendly people. The center of trade and commerce in Rinconada area and in the whole Bicol Region.

Every year, celebrated on the month of February is the famous Tinagba Festival that attracts both local and foreign tourists. The festival constitutes the re-enactment of an ancient traditional ritual that involved making offerings of the land’s best produce. A parade of colorfully decorated bullcarts with equally colorful dressed men and women from all walks of life makes the celebration very festive. 

Found at the uptown Iriga and about kilometers from the famous Lake Buhi in Camarines Sur rises a stratovolcano know as Mount Asog. Similar to Mount Cristobal of Southern Tagalog, Mount Asog possesses it's own charm with a scenic looks of Mts. Mayon, Malinao, Masaraga, Isarog and Lake Buhi at the top.
