Buglasan on the processing

Buglasan 2013 Preparation

Whole Negros Oriental almost can’t await the Opening of Buglasan 2013 starts on Friday. We already paid a visit today and took some pictures of those, who are not in the spotlight, not the big TV celebrities, no beauty queens and no VIPs.

ABOUT Negros Oriental 100

These past few years, road runs and marathons are conducted with such regularity in almost any big city in the Philippines. Race organizers usually do this to promote a healthy lifestyle among the people, and to help boost sports-tourism activities in their respective places.
But one can only run in any particular place so many times; otherwise, it could get pretty boring. More and more runners are now curious about other running adventures in other places in the country; this is precisely what we want to offer you here in Negros Oriental, in the central part of the Philippines.

The Negros Oriental Ultra-marathon 100-km offers you — and being designed to those who have yet to conquer their FIRST 100k Ultra-marathon — the opportunity to run along the asphalted highway of Negros Oriental starting at 5pm through the sunset, and meeting the sunrise the next day until about 5pm, giving you a breathtaking view between the Mindanao Sea and the Cuernos de Negros mountain range.

Negros Oriental 100 is one of the highlights in the celebration of the Charter Day of the City of Bayawan which culminates on Dec. 23.

With the prodding and support of the Negros Oriental-based Metro Dumaguete Roadrunners Club (MDRC) and the Dumaguete Adventure Runners & Striders (DARS), this Negros Oriental is organized by the Negros Oriental Sports Development Program (NOSDEP) of the Office of the Governor of Negros Oriental, and the Fiesta Committee of Bayawan City.

While all efforts are in place with aid stations spaced every 10-km distance to ensure the safety and well-being of the ultra-marathoners and the organizers, the Provincial government of Negros Oriental, the City government of Bayawan, the Philippine National Police, the Philippine Army, and the co-host local government units of Dumaguete City, the municipalities of Bacong, Dauin, Zamboanguita, Siaton, and Sta. Catalina, and the race sponsors shall be free from any liabilities or claims for damages arising injuries or mishaps for the duration of the ONe100 ultra-running.Negros Oriental 100-519x400

SCENIC RACE ROUTE

The Negros Oriental 100 race route is not only fun; it also has a number of photo-ops. It begins at the Provincial Capitol in the University Town of Dumaguete City, running along Rizal Boulevard (where Jose Rizal walked along the promenade, met some locals, and gave Dumaguete the monicker “City of Gentle People”), then Colon St. (the City’s oldest) where you could see the 18th century Bell Tower. Then the route takes you south to Km. 7 to the town of Bacong, birthplace of Philippine hero Pantaleon Villegas, more known by his nom de guerre Gen. Leon Kilat.

On to hilly roads of the town of Dauin in Km. 16. By Km. 25 is the jump-off point to Apo Island, one of the world’s Top 5 Dive Spots. Then you move on to the town of Zamboanguita by Km. 28, where the Japanese Imperial Forces Command surrendered to the Filipinos during World War II. Then up through the winding and hilly slopes of the enchanted town of Siaton by Km. 32, the original site chosen by the United States for their air base in the Philippines. You don’t stop until you reach the town of Sta. Catalina in Km. 90, Negros Oriental’s rice granary. And on to the FINISH LINE in the Sundown City of Bayawan.
