Mount Ugo Marathon 2017
Organized by KOTM Trail Run Philippines

Mount Ugo Marathon 2017 will be on February 19, 2017 at Kayapa, Mt. Ugo, Nueva Viscaya.

Mount Ugo is one of the taller peaks in the Cordillera mountain range. It used to be the main source of lumber for a mining company operating in Benguet many years ago and was purportedly “discovered” as a destination for mountain climbers after a tragic plane crash in 1987 for which it is also infamously known.

The marathon takes runners to Mount Ugo’s summit, approximately 2170 masl.

The out-and-back course consists of only one kilometer or less of concrete road. The rest of the route consists of mountain-side dirt roads and single-track trails.

The race is worth 2 UTMB® points.

Both the marathon and half marathon start at the KAYAPA MUNICIPAL HALL and finish at the KAYAPA CENTRAL SCHOOL (1121 masl).

From the start area, runners ascend a concrete road for about two hundred meters before entering the trailhead going to TALECABCAB.

They will pass dirt roads and intermittent stretches of concrete tire paths until they reach TALECABCAB WAITING SHED. From there, they are to proceed towards INDUPIT (1866 masl, 8 kilometers) which is marked by a small settlement and another waiting shed.

The next landmark is BUNDAO AID STATION (1835 masl, 10 kilometers), where runners will find two structures – a shed and a house. Assorted food/snacks and drinks will be available. This is the LAST aid station before SADDLE/DOMOLPOS STATION (7 kilometers away) so runners are strongly advised to fill up their bladders/water bottles and eat here.

Half marathon (21-kilometer) runners must proceed about 500 meters more until they reach the turnaround point at MOUNT SAMENTO WAITING SHED, where marshals will record their numbers. They shall make their way back to the finish line in KAYAPA CENTRAL SCHOOL via INDUPIT/ANSIPSIP Trail and TALECABCAB Trail (the same route they took going up in reverse).

Marathon runners will tackle the wide, open trails from this point. Their next landmark will be the ANSIPSIP WAITING SHED (1935 masl, 12 kilometers) which offers a view of the Mt. Ugo summit turnaround, even the city of Baguio, on a clear day.

DOMOLPOS VILLAGE (1700 masl), where locals reside, is the next landmark. From here, runners assault a single-track trail until the SADDLE.

SADDLE/DOMOLPOS WAITING SHED JUNCTION (1763 masl, 17 kilometers) is where another aid station is located. The shed won’t be hard to miss as it is painted pink. Spring water and assorted trail food will be available. Runners are advised to refill and eat here.

Runners will proceed around three kilometers towards the LUSOD AREA/BACUYAN JUNCTION (1770 masl, 20 kilometers) through a single-track trail.

At BACUYAN, runners will make a U-TURN towards the MT. UGO SUMMIT MARKER via a steep two-kilometer climb.

Runners’ times will be recorded at the MT. UGO SUMMIT MARKER (2170 masl, 21.2 kilometers).
From the summit, runners are to trace the same route they took going up in reverse till they make it to the finish line in KAYAPA CENTRAL SCHOOL.
