Tellias conquers Kibungan 42K race
by Ofelia C. Empian

Defending champion James Tellias topped the 42-kilometer marathon of the recently concluded Kibungan Mountain Run (KMR).

Tellias finished in six hours, 19 minutes, and 26 seconds (6:19:26).

The race is a tune- up for Tellias who is preparing for the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, the mother of all trail-running events worldwide.

The multi-awarded trail runner is also raising funds for his trip to the event set Aug. 26 to Sept. 1 in the Alps, passing through France, Italy, and Switzerland.  

Trailing him three minutes later is his brother, Al, who had a time of 6:22:52, while Robert Dequila placed third with a time of 9:12:32.

In the distaff side, Novena Manacnes led the race with a time of 8:57:18 followed by Maria Cecila Kiswa with a time of 9:23:16.

Dangwa Bentrez Jr., meanwhile ruled the 21K male category with a time of 4:12:01 followed by Chester Nicod-am with 4:31:01 and Sepbirt Awisan with a time of 5:28:49.

Isabel Milagros Quipse led the female side of the 21K with a time of 5:29:31 followed by Divina Kitongan with a time of 6:32:11 and Jascel Picat who clocked at 7:01:50.

Vinson Ramos topped the 15K male run with a time of 3:25:34 followed by Ronel Ventura and Dan Carlo Amoc, who clocked at 4:25:38 and 4:29:56, respectively.

The lone female finisher for the 15K is Reinaross Bantayan, who represented the Philippine Military Academy with a time of 5:38:59.

Event organizer Stephen Felices said this year’s race has registered a high percentage of runners who were not able to finish the race due to difficulty of the trail route.

Felices said the route of the KMR is about 5,000 meters above sea level elevation gain, wherein the 42K race felt like a 100K run due to the steep and challenging routes. But trail runners were treated with the scenic view of the rocky mountains of the municipality.

The race is organized by Team Malaya as part of its Cordillera Series, the toughest series of the trail running group.

The local government of Kibungan supported the event, paving way for the successful conduct of the annual activity.
