Antique Half Marathon Challenge 2016 dubbed as “HANGAWAY” a Visayan term for “Warrior” will be on May 15, 2016. This year, the 4th edition of the Antique Half-Marathon Challenge will live up to it™s name and will give them the real challenge. This will bring the battle on trail with obstacles on the last 2km of the route for the 22 and 12K distances.
Antique – home of the warriors. AntiqueÃ±os believed to be the descendants of Datu Sumakwel, the brave warrior and leader of the 10 Burnean datus who first settled in the Island of Panay in the 13th century.
The race will use the same route as the A.T.A.T. but the there will be an additional kilometer that will pass to the other hanging bridge (for the 22K) and the stretch where the obstacle course will be located – a kilometer before the finish line. The route is not so technical but is enough to give runners the real challenge of trail running. It is compose of 1.5 km cemented road before it enters another few kilometers of dirt, aggregate road with some sharp stones approaching the muddy uphills. It is advisable to wear road-to-trail running shoes. There are parts of steep descend which is so slippery especially when it rains then followed by river crossings. Expect to get wet. Rivers are located somewhere about km 7-8. It’s perfect to soak in the fresh water to freshen up those tired legs and cool down the hot body temperature. The highlight would be the steel suspension bridge or the hanging bridge. Runners are advised to walk across it as the vibration makes it hard to run especially if many runners would cross at the same time.
