Ayala Land and R.O.X.’s EXPLORAC Trail Run gave me a break from my usual road race. It’s 11 kilometers of dirt and lahar, with an extra river trail and short rope segment. We even had the chance to be under the SCTEX bridge. It took me at least 2 hours to finish the race; I had so much fun taking pictures and filling my lungs with fresh air.

A portion of Mt. Pinatubo is within Porac, so it is amazing for Ayala Land to transform this once devastated area into an athlete’s playground. Such an honor to be part of EXPLORAC Trail Run, the first race organized in the area.

Below are some pictures from the race. I hope to return to Porac in the near future for a nice trail run session. Thanks again Ayala Land and R.O.X. for bringing outdoor enthusiasts to Porac, Pampanga.
