Mt. Batulao Mountain Run: Farewell Run with Tess Geddes

Last Sunday morning, March 21, 2010, Team Hard Core (Dess, David ‘isko’ Goggins and Jeff) ran with Tess Geddes (the only Pinay who finished 7 desserts ultra marathons) in Mt. Batulao, Nasugbu, Batanggas. This is a farewell run for Tess. Most probably Tess is now above the atlantic ocean bound to the U.S by now.

This was planned when Tess, Ivy and I had a 5 hours run from Sta Rosa-Silang-Tagaytay-Silang-Sta Rosa two Sundays ago. Tess wanted to have her last run before she go back to the States.

It was cold that morning when we reached Evercrest. As a matter of fact, Tagaytay was covered with thick fog that morning. Some of us wondered if  we used proper clothes.

We had so much fun that morning. Often times, Tess shared her experiences when she ran the 7 desserts ultra marathons, which is a treasure story for us. We took the old trail heading to the summit and then went down via new trail.

Let the pictures speak how much fun we had…

  6. Hi everyone,
    I am rather happy to have found a runner’s blog in Indonesia. I currently live in Shanghai but moving to Bali late May. I have been looking desperatly on line for running trail, runner’s club in Bali and I hope some of youcan help me in my research.
    My back groud: started running in 2006. Completed several marathons: Great Wall of China, Shanghai, Germany, Norway, THF100 duo in S’pore, 100kms Trailwalker in Hong Kong and I just return from Morocco where I did the Marathon Des Sables.
    I hope you can put me in contact with ther runners in Bali, some good trails and keep me posted on any running event in the region.
    Thank you!

  7. Hi Jerome, I’m not familiar with some trails or running club in Bali but I know someone, a race director from Bali, the RD of Bali International 10k (
