Bagtit Ultra 50

November 13, 2022
Race Venue: Brgy. Papaac Multipurpose Hall, Camiling, Tarlac
“Bagtit’ is the Ilocano translation of the word “crazy” and “Ultra”, short for Ultramarathon, refers to a race distance longer than a marathon (42km). Ultra trail runners are often tagged as crazy because people thought that it would be impossible to accomplish. What made it crazier is the difficult and technical trails of Mt. Damas and Mt. Sem-ilya. And so, the Bagtit Ultra 50 was conceptualized.
Mt. Damas is situated near the border of three Tarlac municipalities: Mayantoc to the southeast, Camiling to the north and San Clemente to the west. The usual trek starts at Barangay Papaac in Camiling known as the Papaac Eco Trails. One can experience a panoramic view of the Tarlac and Pangasinan plains and Mt. Arayat from afar. Mt. Damas may arguably have the distinction of being the most scenic mountain in Tarlac.
On the other hand, not far from Mt. Damas summit is Mt. Sem-ilya which was less explored. There are also trails from Dueg that would lead to Barangay Labney in Mayantoc, the jump-off of the Mt. Tapulao Traverse route. These trails will be the highlight of this event.
Bagtit Ultra 50 will be held on November 13, 2022. The start and finish line will be at Papaac Multipurpose Hall. The event will help in promoting the tourism and healthy lifestyle in the community.
