THE ROUTE

Hardcore 100 Miles (H1) is the first 100-mile trail race in the Philippines. It belongs to an exclusive club of 100-mile races worldwide that have a total elevation gain of more than 10,000 meters. The ITRA-certified race meets the international standards of a trail course, with less than 10% of the route made up of concrete roads, and the rest, of single track trails, dirt/gravel paths, dry stream beds, grasslands, farmlands, forest trails and hanging bridges. It takes runners to two major peaks: Mount Pulag Tower (2,800 masl) and Mount Ugo (2,150 masl), and several hills and hamlets in between. Following is a list of the villages/landmarks runners will pass. (Given the location, terrain characteristics and varying weather conditions, allow for discrepancies in distances/data recorded during race day). Aid Stations, Cut-off points and Drop Bag Stations are also indicated. Runners must leave the Cut-off points at the exact times indicated or earlier, whether or not they have accessed their drop bags, refilled or eaten, otherwise they will no longer be allowed to continue with the race and will be declared as DNF (Did not Finish).

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

    Runners attempting H1 must understand that challenges exist in this 160-kilometer trail race and they must be prepared to make decisions for their own safety under uncertain conditions without expectation of immediate assistance due to the inaccessibility of many areas to any type of motor vehicle, the remoteness of the race route and the distance between villages/households. While there is no guarantee that the runner is prepared for every eventuality, finishing a qualifying event gives some evidence of being prepared for H1. Additionally, it also improves the chances for a runner to finish the event.

    For the safety and welfare of all those involved in this event, participants must meet the following requirements:

    1. Every participant must be at least 18 years of age on race day. Those who will not be 18 years of age on race day must submit a signed parent’s or guardian’s consent.
    2. He/she must have officially finished a 100-kilometer or longer trail ultramarathon (all results must be verifiable from the internet) OR he/she must have officially finished the 2019 Clark-Miyamit 50 Miles, or any other KOTM accredited 80-kilometer trail race held within the period stated below (please confirm with your respective organizers if their races have been accepted as qualifiers for 2023 H1).
