ROUTE

For the 2023 edition, Pulag 100 (P1) has a new route which aims to establish the first point-to-point, hiker-friendly route between Babadak (located in the shadow of Mount Pulag) all the way through to Baguio City.  Hardcore Hundred Miles (H1) aspirants are encouraged to join this event one year prior to H1 to get a feel for the longer-distance race.

The course is approximately 120 kilometers in distance, with a mix of dirt paths, single track trails and concrete roads.  It has many demanding ascents and breathtaking descents. The total elevation gain is around 6,430 meters while total elevation loss is approximately 7,410 meters.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Runners attempting P1 must understand that challenges exist in this 120 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 P1.  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 50-kilometer trail ultramarathon or trail marathon (all results must be verifiable from the internet).
3. Qualifying races must be completed in the period from April 1, 2019 – April 1, 2023.
