Salomon Xtrail is definitely back!

After hosting successful community runs in Luzon and Visayas, Salomon Xtrail has finally made its way back to Mindanao as part of the activities lined-up in celebration of Summer Saya sa Isla 2023.

The Salomon Xtrail held last May 7, 2023 on Samal Island was a huge success. Out of the 525 people who registered for the event, a total of 471 participants showed up and ran, with 292 running the 15km category and 179 running the 30km category. The 30km race started at 1:15 am, while the 15km race started at 5:30 am.

The official opening of the Salomon Xtrail was led by Race Director Dax And of Davao Adventure, with Tiong Stevan, City Counselor delivering the opening message and Lance Aquino, Brand Manager of Salomon, giving the welcome remarks. The runners braved the rain that poured down an hour before the gun start and found the trails even more exhilarating and challenging, leaving all 30km runners drenched and eager to take on the trails. Despite the rain, participants said the paths were even more exhilarating and difficult, delivering a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable experience.

In addition to the existing trails, Salomon Xtrail also introduced new trails exclusively built for the event, providing runners with an even greater variety of terrain to conquer. These new trails will now be open to all trail runners who want to enjoy the natural beauty and challenging terrain of Samal Island.

The winners of the 30km category were Maria Josephine Liao, Arian Jane Aloy, and Lizy Ayn Misa for the Women's and Jong Mahinay, Romnick Tongkaling, and Roberto Cain for the Men's category. Mariel Cantila, Razzil, and Vanessa Manlosa QuiƱanola won the Women's category for the 15km, while Marjones Abugan, Paul James Zafico, and Antonio Baguio took the top three spots for the Men's category. The awards were given by DOT XI represented by RD Tanya Rabat-Tan.

Interactive games such as Beer Mile, Bring Me, and Longest Leg Raise were also held to entertain participants and supporters. The event was made possible with the support of partners and sponsors, including the Department of Tourism XI, Samal LGU, Primer Group of Companies, ROX, Nalgene, Sea to Summit, Gatorade, Mountain Dew, Pepsi, San Miguel Beer, Nature Spring, Unilab, Beach Hut, Blackwater, Anytime Fitness, Converge, Ad Focus, Omega, Salonpas, Bioderm, Extra Joss, MX3, Young Living, and Fitbar.

Salomon Xtrail is a regional trail run in the Asia-Pacific Region that has been running for over a decade now. In the Philippines, the race has become the biggest trail event, with hardcore athletes and enthusiasts eagerly anticipating the event each year. With different trails and race venues all over the country, the Salomon Xtrail showcases different terrains, elevations, and challenges, making it an epic experience for all participants.

The Salomon Xtrail Pilipinas Race is a pioneer of the Green race movement, promoting sustainability and environmental consciousness by not providing disposables at the hydration stations. Participants were required to bring their own provisions, encouraging them to be mindful of their environmental impact.

Beyond the race itself, Salomon Xtrail offered participants a chance to connect with like- minded individuals and embrace an active lifestyle. The event brought together runners from all over the country, offering a sense of community and camaraderie. Whether you are a hardcore athlete or simply looking for a new challenge, the event offers something for everyone, promoting an active and sustainable lifestyle that is good for you and the environment.
