Davao's renowned female triathletes Judelyn Miranda and Monaliza Ambasa are among the early favorites to rule the All-Female category of the Mt. Apo Boulder Face Challenge slated on April 26-27, 2014 at Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur.
According to Event Coordinator Fernando Ugdoracion of LGU Sta. Cruz, the relay category (all-male and all-female) is a breakthrough category inserted into this year's race to give chance to athletes who only have one master discipline.
At this stage of preparation, Miranda and Ambasa proved to be too much for the other teams to beat, as the duo had already won several marathons and mountain biking challenges in local and national competitions. They have also once participated the Boulder Face Challenge in 2009 and 2010.
Miranda won the 2010 race along with team mate Christopher Eyao while Ambasa made it to the race but got injured along the way and didn’t make it to the finish line.
"As of this time we have not identified yet as to who we'll pick up to do the water tubing stage. I will personally perform the mountain biking while Mona (Ambasa) will do the trail running," said Miranda.
The race route for relay category is the same with that of the open elite having a total course of 120 kilometers. Registration fee is pegged at 4,500 pesos and winners will have a chance to pocket the 15,000 cash prize for champion. First and second runner up finishers will received 10,000 and 7,000 pesos cash prize, respectively.
