I am Jerry Karundeng of Indonesia. Currently, staying in the Philippines for temporary.

It was back in the middle of 2007 when a friend of mine who later became my coach, introduced and converted me into this religion called ‘running’, Angelo Padua of Dagupan City.

I started running in August 2007 in preparation for Baguio Milo 21k Elimination on November 2007 and that was a run to remember…

Coming from my passion to the mountain, HighAltitude is chose to be the name of this blog.

Interestingly, my ultimate dream being a runner is not to be able to participate/qualify in Boston Marathon, as most runner wishes to, but to join Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon, the world’s highest marathon, from Everest basecamp (5,365m) – to Namche Bazar (3,440m).

Push beyond the limit – Never stop exploring!




  1. Wow! No wonder your blogname is High Altitude. Your ultimate dream is to run the highest marathon! At the rate you’re going, you’re gonna achieve this goal sooner than you expected. Good luck, Jerry!

  2. Thank you so much Nora…

    Please keep inspiring!

  14. @Thy,

    I’m really sorry for the late reply. I just got back from Sabah. I’m wondering if you are still in Indonesia…

  15. Hi Jerry,
