I miss trail running, yes I do. It’s been more than a year since wifey and I ran the trails, ever since she got pregnant and gave birth to our little one. This year, we promised oursevles to live out the life in the trails again. And the comeback run we’reeyeing is the 3rd Conquer Jagged Peak 21k/10k.
A local brand, Conquer specializes in outdoor gears and stuff, and for the past several years, it has also made a name for itself as the bringer of some of the most organized and scenic trail runs here in our country, led by its race director, Sir Jigger Meneses.
Even before we got married, wifey and I have been joining Conquer races for several times in the past now, starting with PdL42 (Pico de Loro 42km) held in Maragondon, Cavite last March 15, 2015, which was our first off-road marathon, until the last one, TR25 (Tarak Ridge 25km) held in Mariveles, Bataan last January 10, 2016. (You could read my blog entry about my TR25 race experience here.)
Hopefully without any unforeseen circumstances, we will be able to come back to the trails in the upcoming Jagged Peak 21k/10k race this coming Sunday, June 4, 2017, with its starting line at Kaylaway Elementary School, Brgy, Kaylaway, Nasugbu, Batangas.

Batulao, Kaylaway Elem. School is still 5KM away from it. From Coastal Mall, Buendia or EDSA Taft, last trip is at 12MN via bus going to Nasugbu, Batangas. Travel time is about 2 hours via Gen. Aguinaldo Hi-way passing Tagaytay City. You can also take a ride from the buses going Balayan, Batangas Advise the conductor that you will alight at Brgy Kaylaway. Fare is approximately P120. From the Highway, you will see immediately the school just a few meters away before Sandari Batulao. Better if you travel earlier.

Take Aguinaldo Highway and follow the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Highway passing Tagaytay City. You will see immediately the Kaylaway elementary School just before you reach Sandari Batulao.
If you are planning to be in the area the day before the race day, Runners may choose to:
1. Setup a tent and camp at the grounds of Kaylaway Elementary School. But please make sure to break camp by 4AM of June 4 before the Race briefing. Comfort Rooms are available also at the school. There are quite number of stores outside the school but carenderia is a challenge so bring something for your dinner and breakfast.
