Boundaries. They’re made to be broken. This is the mantra of those who never stop exploring and pushing themselves to their limits. This is the mantra of the participants of the The North Face (TNF) 100 2016.
TNF held its annual TNF 100 last April 30 to 1 May 2016 at the Camp John Hay Country Club in Baguio-Benguet. The route, which showcased the scenic mountain ranges and trails of the Cordilleras, is a favorite among runners and outdoor enthusiasts. This year, even more adventure seekers thronged to Baguio for this race as TNF 100 opened up its trail courses to 100 km, 50 km, 22 km, and now to 11 km.
This is no small feat for those who know the perils and the thrills of trail running. Training in the outdoors is more than just moving your exercise regimen’s geography. It is pushing your mental and physical limits to adapt to the constantly evolving and oftentimes, uncontrollable nature of the outside environment. It is about always being ready to explore, and that is what TNF is all about.
True to its core values, TNF has launched its official training regimen Outdoor Training this year. This revolutionary workout program will be practiced in the open, subsequently harnessing the athlete’s mental and physical agility, strength, balance, and core power like never before. Because the outside elements can be unpredictable and extreme, it is imperative that the practitioner uses apparel that gives superior breathability and durability that complements their training.
This is why TNF developed its Tekware product line, Mountain Athletics. This performance wear line of TNF applies technology specifically suited for the outdoors, making its wearer Get Better and Go Further in their outdoor training. It is the gear that the athletes use to make them perform their best in the TNF 100 2016, which is now bigger than ever.
TNF 100 2016 is one of the most important events this year as it lines up with The North Face’s 50th year anniversary. Tim Sedo, Regional Marketing Manager for Hong Kong and Asia markets, and a dedicated skateboarder, snowboarder, and outdoor enthusiast himself, has flown in for this very special occasion.
Exploration is a journey, a race if you may, and The North Face is at the forefront of this race, blazing a trail so that others may follow.
