Trail running takes a lot of hard work and determination. It doesn’t matter if you don’t win, what’s important is you gave it your all and finished the race. Since running is a reward in itself, joining an event for a cause is even more fulfilling.
The Salomon Xtrail Run 2015 kicked off with the 1st Salomon Xtrail 101 last December 5 at The District Ayala Northpoint. The event’s goal is to educate participants on trail running and prepare them for the race. Mr. Jojo Bonnin, an awarded runner, was the guest speaker.
The Salomon Xtrail 101, being a green running event, also focused on the DENR’s Forest and Wildlife Protection Information Campaign which is to spread awareness about the state of the Negros forests. Ms. Rose Pablico from DENR further explained the campaign. The Salomon Xtrail Race is also for the benefit of the Wildlife Enforcement Officers under DENR-PENRO Negros Occidental.
