 In Event, Race Review, Running, Top Stories

All eyes are on the Clark Miyamit Falls Ultra as two hundred six runners are expected to toe the starting line for the 8th edition of CM50.  2018 sets the record for the highest numbers of starters for the main category.  For its side events, sixty two (62) runners are in the 60K while fifty -two are joining the first ten-miler event of this race.

What makes this race special?  Manolito Divina, 3-time champion and 4-time finisher said that this race is like a reunion where almost everyone is in attendance.  Majo Liao, also a 3-time champion and the first female Baddest Ass Awardee said each year has a different challenge and experience; it’s never easy no matter how many times you do it.    Watch our Facebook Live interview with Majo and Manolito here  

The race also attracts a deep field of competitors, both local and international.  Known for its DNF challenge since its 2011 edition, the race gets the Bad Ass out of any trail runner.   As the CM50’s official quote says:

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. Khalil Gibran

To date, three hundred ninety-one strongest trail runners have earned the BAD ASS badge, sixteen have done it five times earning them the Baddest Ass Award while majority have done it two to four times.  This year, five runners who have consecutively ran Cm50 since 2014 are qualified for the Bad Ass Award.  Let’s cheer for them as they aim to earn their fifth bad ass badge on Sunday, Go Marvin Evasco, Manolito Divina, Rone Millan, Ernani Occiano and Darryl Panado!
