Cordillera Mountain Ultra 2017
Organized by Cordillera Conservation Trust

Cordillera Mountain Ultra 2017 will be on March 4 to 5, 2017 at Dalupirip, Itogon.

Cordillera Mountain Ultra 2017 is a showcase of the beauty of the Pine Clad mountain forests of the Cordillera Region. Situated on the southern slopes of Mt. Ugo in the town of Itogon the Cordillera Mountain Ultra will feature 3 events: The 50km Ultra Marathon, 21km Mountain Run, and a Vertical KM.

50K Cordillera Mountain Ultra

The 50km Cordillera Mountain Ultra will traverse around Mt. Ugo in Benguet. Topping out at 2150m it features long ridge lines covered in Pine forests as well as superb views of the West Philippine sea, the entire Agno River Valley as well as the Cagayan Valley of Nueva Vizcaya.

The race starts with a run through the Agno River valley to the small village of Tabu, from here it is a steep vertical km up to the village of Bantik where superb views of the Agno River and the West Philippine Sea can be had. From the top of the ridge it is a 5 km downhill run to the village of Uling and then a long 15km Pine forest ridge that will lead you to the top of Mt. Ugo. From the summit of Mt. Ugo you will descend 15kms through the village of Lusod to the village of Tinungdan cross a few hanging bridges and then run through the rice fields by the banks of the Agno river for the last 10kms to the finish line in Dalupirip.

Ascent Descent Distance Cut-Off Time
 2,640m D+  2,640m D-  47.8kms  13 hours

21K Mountain Run

The 22KM Mountain Run goes up to a ridge in the village of Bantik that overlooks the entire Agno River Valley, as well as the Cagayan Valley and the Western Coastline of Norther Luzon and the West Philippine Sea before it turns back to the starting line.

The course will pass through 3 long hanging bridges across the Agno River

Ascent Descent Distance Cut-Off Time
1,383m D+ 1,383m D-  22.7kms  6 Hours

Vertical KM (5K)

The vertical KM is approximately 5.5kms with 1000m of elevation gain. This will start from Dalupirip up to Mt. Marikit.

The Vertical KM race of the Cordillera Mountain Ultra on March 4 is a fast paced adrenaline pumping race up 1000m of elevation gain in just 5 kilometers! This is the pre-race warm up for the big 50km Cordillera Mountain Ultra on March 5!

It is a short race in comparison to many of the trail races around Asia but this is likely the most exciting trail race out there, not to mention having the most picturesque finish line. Competitors are all tongues out and neck and neck from the starting line to the finish line at the top of the mountain and with just 5 kilometers there is no let up! You have to go all out all the way! Burn your lungs, burn your legs, use your hands, use every calorie you can supply!
This is the Vertical KM!

Ascent Descent Distance Cut-Off Time
1,019m D+ (Max 55.2% | Avg 21.3%) 55m D-  5.52kms  2.5 Hours
