Hungduan Rice Terraces marathon limited to 150
by Ofelia C. Empian

Running enthusiasts are set to converge at the mountainous terrain of Hungduan, Ifugao for the latest staging of the rice terraces marathon on May 28.

Event organizer Stephen Felices of Team Malaya said registration is ongoing for the yearly event.

The marathon features the 21-kilometer and 42K races that will allow runners to experience the majestic view of the various Unesco World Heritage rice terraces in the town.

Participants can run through the “spider web of rice terraces” in Hapao, passing through waterfalls, hot and cold springs, the old Spanish trails, and the Panique rice field said Felices.

The event, which is the fourth leg of the Cordillera Series, has limited slots with 150 participants only.

Felices said Hung-duan came from the word “hungdu,” meaning “to traverse through.”

“This word means a place where a person traverses through on their way to another place,” he said.

Registration fee for 21K is P1,500 while 42K is P2,500, inclusive of environmental fees, personalized bib, certificate, carboloading, breakfast, and post-run meal.

Finishers’ medals and finisher’s short sleeves shirts will also be given to finishers in both categories.

Felices said registrants are advised to bring their own tent or sleeping bags since accommodation in the area is very limited. The nearest accommodation is in Barangay Hapao, which is eight kilometers away from the start/finish line. 

“But you may still book your accommodation in Hapao or nearest inn or homestay if you wish,” he said.

He said there would be no cut-off time but the aid stations will be removed after eight hours. However, along the way there are sari-sari stores where runners can refresh themselves.
