Balesin Adventure Trail Run


About the race

The Balesin Adventure Trail Run is a race conceptualized and organized by RUNRIO Inc. It is inspired by the fact that in tropical countries like the Philippines, the weather is mostly hot and humid. However, running mid morning will be a more fun and exciting experience with your family and friends as the runners will be able to outlook the beautiful view of the island.

The team also aims to promote an active and healthy lifestyle to Filipino's and non FIlipino's as well. Especially for the non runners who would want to try something new.                                                
Your registration for the  Balesin Adventure Trail Run  includes flights per pax to and from Balesin Island Club and, 3-days / 2-nights accommodation from November 24 to 26, 2017 in one of Balesin's Luxurious Villas. Each Villa can accommodate up to four (4) persons.  

Each registration session will let you register up to four (4) persons in a Villa.
The runners have two race categories to choose from namely, 5K and 21K which will be FREE OF CHARGE. In addition, there will be activities for the whole family, special offers at Aegle Wellness Center and an after party at the finish line for all the participants.
