Running in General Santos City has always been fun and regular; thanks to strong efforts of former Police City Director Cedrick Train.
Practically, every month, the roads of General Santos City are swarmed with runners from all ages. The last national race was Milo Marathon 2014 set last November 16 with around 7000+ runners. I was more than overwhelmed as my own family joined me when they registered for 5KM category as I did my 21Km race.
But, more than the road runs, I personally prefer trail runs because of the scenic and exciting trails where each route is always distinct and unique.

So, come February 8, 2015, Team Matutum shall once again host a race but this time on the mountains of Brgy Olympog.
The route shall cover a 9KM+ loop of Balsinang; the trail includes stiff ascent and descent plus superb view of Team Matutum, Sarangani Bay and the city.
The trail run includes categories for duo runners and solo runner. If you wish to register, click here. The following are the basic race rules:
