Break boundaries at Salomon X-Trail Run
Five decades since its inception, Salomon continues to elevate outdoor experiences as the world’s leading trail-running brand. But beyond its dedication to product innovation, Salomon has likewise come to embrace its role as a pillar of outdoor athleticism. In its bid to push the boundaries of trail-running, Salomon has announced the return of the highly-anticipated Salomon X-Trail Run on July 22 at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
Transcending the boundaries of human capability is a philosophy that drives the core of Salomon. Participants of this year’s Salomon X-Trail Run can expect no less from the trail-running authority as it once again simulates the challenging ascents of skyrunning races.
Particularly, the Mountain Run which is positioned as the most challenging category of the race will feature a heady combination of terrains such as asphalt and rocky trails to rivers, sandy tracks and steep technical ascents — all of which are designed to test the stamina of the most tenacious runner.
The Mountain Run participants will receive a race bib, timing chip, Salomon X-Trail technical jersey, Salomon Microfiber towel, post-race meal, raffle coupon and products from sponsors. Only those who finish within the cut-off time will receive a finisher’s medal for the category.
Salomon X-Trail Run also opens its doors to avid runners with basic to no trail-running experience with its 6-km. and 12-km. trail run category. The Trail Run category aims to inspire runners to test limits of their ability by coming up with a technical terrain. Trail Run participants will receive a race bib, timing chip,
Salomon X-Trail technical jersey, post-race meal, raffle coupon and products from sponsors.
Given the demanding nature of these distances, participants of the 32-km. and 24-km. Mountain Run must adhere to the prescribed medical certificate before registration and manda tory gear before the race, which includes a headlamp, whistle and hydration pack/belt. Those with incomplete mandatory gear will not be allowed to participate in the race.
Interested participants are invited to register until July 8 at Salomon Stores: SM Aura, SM Megamall, Glorietta 3, SM North Edsa Annex or online at
