Running Event : Salomon Citytrail 2014 Philippines

"just because you are not out there in the big mountains and the wilderness, it doesn't mean you can't find freedom" - Anna Frost, Trail Runner & Salomon Athlete

When I don’t get to hike or travel and I find myself craving for scenery and a little bit of adventure, I go out for a run and just wander off. It was through this that I discovered interesting places – deserted alleys, red light districts, museums and parks. In one occasion, I even boarded a boat that cruised over Pasig river (blog here). 

So I’m quite excited to share with you details of the Salomon Citytrail 2014 which will be held on September 7, 2014 in the historic district of Intramuros, Manila, a former political center of the Spanish regime in East Asia.
