It’s official, the Team Titans Davao comes out as the winner for the delegation with most number of participants!!! =)
Here is the fearless forecast of the possible top winners of the Davao Sundown Ultramarathon 50KM by the RD Katherine Villaflor.
Ronald Dagaang quit from the 90km Southern Philippines Unified Ultramarathon 2013, which was the first ultramarathon organized by Katie. Let’s see if Ronald can pull it off this time on Katie’s race.
Coming from TDR known for being ultrahabcores, Rowell Cabardo definitely has the experienced in ultramarathons. But then I think Rowell is better with distances longer than 50KM so this might be a challenge to him.
Jonathan Pido. The race might come down to a Jonathan Pido versus Ronald Dagaang moment. Though, both are not that very visible in the ultramarathon scene, but with a Mt. Apo Boulder Challenge in their belt, it cannot be denied that these two will be the runners to fear most. =)
But runners from the land of Manny Pacquiao are not going to be easy too. Romulo Diel Braza of Team Matutum seems to look to be bringing a lot of punches with him.
In the girls’ field, it’s exciting to see Virginia Tumapon of Team Titans Davao racing again in the ultramarathon. Last time, I heard of her, was she’s the 4th placer of the CUC 100K Leg 3, which I think was her first try in ultramarathon.
Gigi Gorre of Team PNP was TDR Ultramarathon’s 3rd overall female placer. It’s still too early to say that she will be a strong contender to Virginia, but her ultramarathon races under her, we’ll never know.
Jennefer Sabala of Team Happy Finish who was the 3rd overall placer of the recent AWUM 2014 (story here >>), clocking in a sub-5 hour at the finish line has a very big chance of getting the championship title.
So who will be the runners that will reach first in the finish line?!?
To all the Davao Sundown Ultramarathon runners from PANABO RUNNERS, TACURONG RUNNERS, TEAM PNP, BJMP GENSAN, TEAM HAPPY FINISH, TOES, TAGUM RUNNERS, SURIGAO RUNNER, TITANS DAVAO, DAVNOR, BUTUAN RUNNERS CLUB, BXU RUNNERS, CUC/LASPAG, FUNNY RUNNERS CLUB, INDIE, MARVEL RUNNERS, P- PARK, ST.
