Thank You, Albay!

If you can't go through it, go around it

I completed the 80-kilometer run around the Mayon Volcano - the Mayon 360° 50-Mile Ultra Marathon Race - in 12 hours, 48 minutes, and 22 seconds. It was a hell of an experience. This is one race that ought to be in every ultra runner's calendar for 2012, and which I will gladly participate in year after year.

Thank you very much to the organizers, Bald Runner the Race Director, and the kind people of Albay province. I had a wonderful time. My Mayon story and more photos of the route to follow as soon as my swollen shin stops disrupting my train of coherent thought.


  1. Congratulations Julius! Just few weeks of recovery from BDM102 and here you are with another challenging ultra run.
    Good luck and take care of the shin.

  2. Wow...amazing! You are a stud and 1/2!
