At least 14 runners crossed the finish line after completing the grueling 100-mile or 160 kilometers ultra marathon race in Camarines Sur.

Virgilio Undaloc Jr., 52, was hailed as the 'King of Philippine Ultra,' who finished in 22 hours, 19 minutes, and 55.12 seconds.

Undaloc said being aware of his pacing was crucial in tackling the challenging course.

"From Goa to Nevada, medyo talagang ‘yung pacing natin, normal lang. Hindi pwedeng hatawin kasi paakyat siya," he said.

Starting with 18 elite runners from Gainza, only 14 managed to complete the daunting 160-kilometer journey, overcoming physical challenges such as friction burns, minor cuts, and blisters along the way.

Among the participants, Tolits Calmada highlighted the physical toll of the race.

"Grabe, mapanakit si 160 [kilometers]! One thing na naging problem ko [ay] ‘yung balat ko sa singit," Calmada said.

The event marked the longest road race in Camarines Sur.
