Are You Ready For The “Muddiest” Run of ’Em All?

Vaseline Men XTERRA Philippines dares you to get off and running on a mud-spattered trail and hurdle challenging obstacles in the Vaseline Men XTERRA Mud Run, organized by Sunrise Events Inc., on May 26 at Filinvest City in Alabang.

Coming after the successful Vaseline Men XTERRA Weekend Championship in Liloan, Cebu last March 2-3, the Vaseline Men XTERRA Mud Run adds a twist to your usual mud run with the insertion of not one but a number of obstacle courses for expected 2000 participants.

Organizers said there will be 10 obstacle courses for the 10K race and five for the 5K event at the new trail course/route that official venue Filinvest City has built specifically for trail runners and bikers, upping level of hardship and to the thrill seeker, raising the fun.

Athletes and adventure seekers are once again set to get down and dirty for Vaseline Men XTERRA Mud Run, the second leg of the 2013 Vaseline Men XTERRA Off-road Triathlon Series.

Set to happen on May 26, 2013 at Filinvest City in Alabang, Muntinlupa, Vaseline Men XTERRA Mud Run is an extraordinarily challenging trail run event that will surely make participants sweaty, muddy, and dirty. Get ready for the muddiest run this year! Vaseline Men XTERRA Mud Run will feature a 5 and 10-kilometer course which includes obstacles that participants must negotiate before crossing the finish line. Designed to test their physical strength, and endurance, these obstacles will involve climbing, rope skills, crawling, leaping, balancing, and carrying. As if these weren’t difficult enough, the trail run will also cover a variety of terrain – hilly, fast descents, slow ascents, fire roads, loose rocks, grasslands, dirt roads, and concrete roads.
