IN ITS drive to "Never Stop Exploring," The North Face collaborated with Team Davao Runners (TDR) to bring first-ever 80 kilometer (80K) Ultramarathon in Davao. The race gun-started on Roxas Ave. on March 16 at 10 p.m. then finished at Eden Nature Park the following day.

It was a challenging route which spanned the JP Laurel Avenue all the way to enroute towards Diversion road, then turned at Toril intersection towards the steep uphill ascent to Eden Nature Park.

TDR Race director, Grant Gutierrez proudly announced that all 73 participants finished the course, thus, were all officially declared true-blue Ultramarathoners.

Six free slots (worth P3,500 each) to The North Face's (TNF) 100-kilometer trail run in Baguio were awarded to the top three winners for men and women.

To add, two TNF endure belt plus TNF 100 sun visors were awarded to Ronald Dagaan and Katie Villaflor as champions. Meanwhile, two additional TNF100 sun visors were likewise awarded to the 1st runner-ups, Jonathan Pido and Jenny Seville Alag.
