And so it’s formally confirmed! The home of Asia’s longest dual cable zipline will also be the home of the much-awaited CDO – Dahilayan Trail 55k Ultra Marathon on July 9, 2011. Dahilayan Adventure Park will be the end point of what’s believed to be the first ever mega marathon of this kind in Mindanao.
Runners will follow the picture-perfect CDO – Dahilayan trail which covers one city (Cagayan de Oro) and two Bukidnon towns (the Municipalities of Libona and Manolo Fortich). From Rodelsa Circle in Cagayan de Oro City, the participants of the race, which will begin at 4 a.m., will then proceed to Barangay Indahag then to Barangay Kiliog. After that, the racers will enter a part of the Del Monte pineapple plantation. The remaining kilometers will cover the road towards Barangay Dahilayan, Manolo Fortich, where the adventure park is. As you can see, the entire race will cover the Cagayan de Oro City to Bukidnon trail. This running event in the Philippines has a total of a whopping 55 kilometers! Yup, not 3, not 5, not even 21…but 55K!
