I am not a Team Malaya member, and I am just promoting this event since I am satisfied with Team Malaya’s choices of running places to run at. I have already run from few running events coordinated and organized by Team Malaya such as the Pine Tree Marathon (Fifth and Final leg of Cordillera Series) held last January 25, 2015, Sagada Marathon 2015 (1st leg of the Cordillera Series Reloaded) held last February 15, 2015, and Benguet Gold Rush (Final leg of Mountain Man Series) held last November 29, 2015. I have run solo on the former, ran with my ex-girlfriend (now my wife) to the next, and ran with my brother on the latter, respectively.
This is also a running event in the Cordillera region in which Baguio is a part of, and it is just right for me to post about this. Unfortunately, I will not be able to run in this event so I am just promoting this one. This will start and finish in the Yamashita Shrine in Kiangan, Ifugao and 50k runners will be able to see the beauty of nature as they pass in places such as Nagacadan Rice Terraces, Galong bridge, Mt Napulawan, Balentimol Falls, and Mungkilat Falls.
For those who want to know something about Kiangan, Kiangan-Ifugao travel guide is a good starting reference on the web that I found which was only posted last February 23, 2016.
The Last Stand of Yamashita Trail Run-2nd leg of #MountainManSeries (March to Victory) was originally slated to happen on the 70th VICTORY DAY anniversary of Ifugao remembering the surrender of Japanese Imperial Army General Tomoyuki Yamashita, hence the name of the event. But due to bad weather on September 2, 2016, it was rescheduled on September 25, 2016.
