R.O.X. MAPAWA Trail Run: The Vertical Monster


These 2 sisters have been joining MAPAWA Trail Run since its first edition that one of them even got the “Youngest Runner” award in the 21K category. Yes, 21K category because they were so excited for the first ever trail running event in CDO (that they heard of).

Here are some #throwbackthursday photos of the Baleta sisters:


Christinine Joy T. Baleta, 9 years old in her 1st Mapawa Run 21K, Aug. 11, 2011. And, yes, you read it right, this 9-year old joined the 21K category back in 2011.

“I like to run because I’m passionate about it. It’s also one of the best things I can both do on my own and also with my family. It is not just about winning the title, I love it when I get to the point of having a great day with my family while running. I am addicted to this kind of sport because it helps me being away from illness and be physically fit.

I look forward to ROX Mapawa Trail Run this year to be more exciting and be more fun. In MAPAWA, I could smell true fresh air and listen to the voice of nature.” – Christinine Joy



Christine Ann T. Baleta, 11 years old last MAPAWA Trail Run 2011.

“I like running because it gives me physical strength and it also helps me balance my diet and be free from illness. I look forward for Mapawa to have fun with its attractive views.” – Christine Ann


Christinine Joy, 5k category, Oct. 21, 2012. Per doctor’s advise, the mother opted to let them join in the shorter distance category.10706442_10152322549461491_1519997756_n
