MANILA – The HOKA Trilogy Run Asia is set to kick off its 2024 series on April 7 at the SM Mall of Asia Complex. A total of 19 races, which includes the National Finals in December, will be held this year. The event is open to all runners, regardless of skill level or age group.

During the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex, Runrio event manager Kamille Atienza unveiled the race details. Several legs are scheduled in cities such as Cebu, Baguio, Iloilo, Bacolod, Davao, and Cagayan de Oro, leading up to the National Finals in Pasay City. The first leg is expected to draw over 8,000 participants.

“Atienza also mentioned plans to expand the event to Clark, Bicol, and Palawan, with future goals of reaching Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia in 2025,” Atienza shared during the forum, which was presented by various leading sports organizations in the Philippines.

The race is described as a “progressive race” as the distance increases with each leg. Starting with races ranging from 5K to 16K in the first leg, the distance will progress to 5K to 21K, then 5K to 32K, leading to the National Finals with a marathon distance of 42K.
