General Race Comments:  Edisi kedua selepas 2017. Secara keseluruhan, berjalan dengan baik, cuma masi boleh diperbaiki. How was the registration process:  Online : checkpointasia dan offline.

H1 Hardcore 100 Miles Ultra Trail, Philippines by Yimsterz

General Race Comments: Possibly the toughest 100 miles ultra here in the Philippines (and even in Asia) with 100 miles of picturesque trails, 12,000+m elevation gain and a 42 hours cut off time given. One of the less commercialized Ultras around, staying true to it's roots of less is more. It's more of a low key ultra set north in the Highlands of the Philippines.

Was the course well-marked & accurate: Course was well marked to me. This year even introduces reflective stripes on the ribbon which helped greatly at night or during foggy sessions.
