1st West Coast 200K Ultramarathon Champs, Survivors named

by Armie Garde

Why would you run a 200-kilometer race? What made you and how did you manage to finish it? These are the questions I would love to ask to those who joined and finished the first West Coast 200 Ultramarathon in the Philippines.

On the first day, there were 33 of them – brave ladies and gentlemen – who started at Olongapo City. On the third day of the consecutive foot race, only 30 remained, and among them are the consistent top finishers.


1. Marcelo Bautista—19:32:29 hours
2. Alfred Delos Reyes—24:06:44 hours
3. Henry Laron—24:50:23 hours

1. Reylynne Delapaz—27:28:48 hours
2. Tin Ferrera—30:31:17 hours
3. Majo Liao—31:46:32 hours

The top three finishers among men were Marcelo Bautista, Alfred Delos Reyes and Judge Henry Laron. [Photo taken by Master Bald Runner]

Here’s runroo.com’sStorify of Bald Runner’s live updates on the third day of WC200.

There was a point in my life when I couldn’t imagine myself running even a 10-kilometer race, but crazy things happened and I ran beyond 42 kilometers, the longest was 88K. Now, inspired by these Warrirors, I know that in God’s time, I can also run beyond 100-kilometer. I will run this race – West Coast 200K Ultramarathon. πŸ™‚

The Raramuri spirit is irresistible, unstoppable!

CONGRATULATIONS to all the Warriors!
