TDR80 Ultramarathon 2014: Battle of Team Singlets & Shorts shorts
Probably one of the cities that has a very active running community in Mindanao is Davao. And, something special about it is that a lot of Davao runners are into endurance running ultramarathon. But there were only a few ultramarathon events in the past years. To name a few that I know of:
* Dec. 10, 2011 – The Century Properties Ultra Marathon 2011 100-kilometer (100K) by FrontRunner
* 1st Undress Ultramarathon 50/110K by Don Greg Espiritu – Nov. 29, 2012
There was 1 ultramarathon each year in 2011 and 2012, and both had no repeats already. It grows into 3 ultramarathons in 2013 starting with TDR80 Ultramarathon which proved to become an annual event, then 2 more ultramarathons in the last quarter of the year.
But this 2014, the ultramarathon scene in Davao is changing. It seems to be there is no stopping in the growing of ultramarathon. Starting with the Davao 50 by Altra Distributor in Feb. 22, 2014, then TDR80 Ultramarathon in March. In May 18, 2014 was the well-attended Davao Sundown Ultramarathon 50KM by Katie Villaflor with Psycho Inday Runners.
Then a series of ultramarathons are upcoming in the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2014 to be staged in Davao. One is Kadawayan Ultramarathon (info here >>) by Race Logic this August, 2014. Katie Villaflor of the 90KM Southern Philippines Unified Ultra and Sundown Ultra will have another race, End to End Ultramarathon 65KM in October (more info >>).
And the latest running group to organize an ultramarathon is the Team Kapwa (like their page >>). One of the very active running groups in Davao in the ultmarathon scene has finally came up with their own event after joining in probably all the ultramarathons in Davao, as well as outside of Davao events. =)
DC2DC means Digos City to Davao City. It will be an activity to kickstart the Digos Fiesta celebration. And, I guess, being a race organized by a very fun-loving group, it will be a one festive event.
The route will start at Digos City Hall, then KM 16 will be at Sta.cruz, 30KM at San Miguel Brewery, 35KM at Aboitiz Coal Power, 40KM will be in Toril, then to downtown Davao City. The last 15KM will be a surprise for the runners. But finish line will be at the famous People’s Park.
