The Nathan Ridge Run will commence on November 20, 2011 at the breath taking greeneries, uphill road course and never before opened running areas of Tagaytay Highlands. It will feature 5k, 10k and 21k categories. Participants will be given access to some Highlands’ amenities and discounts. Also, there will be a service bus from ROX to Tagaytay Highlands which runners can avail for only Php 350, just indicate it in the registration form.
As Nathan promotes environmental awareness and concern, they will be giving away FREE NATHAN HANDHELD WATER BOTTLES which will be included in the race kit. The runners are advice to use the free water bottle or any hydration equipment they have during the race as THERE WILL BE NO PLASTIC CUPS on hydration stations. Instead, Nathan will be setting up conveniently placed refilling stations with cold water and Gatorade along the course.
I was able to attend the Route Recon of the race yesterday at and I tell you, this is a very challenging uphill road race! It’s going to be one the most endurance challenging race you will ever experience! This is not your typical 21k, 10k or 5k road race! So if you are the type who loves to keep on challenging yourself this one is for you!
