Now on its fourth year, Guerilla Race is the first obstacle racing series in the Philippines that is held annually. A proudly Filipino-made race, Guerilla Race is the brainchild of former Philippine Army officer Lt. Col. Dennis Bumanglag. A staunch advocate of instilling army-level discipline, his extensive background in the Armed Forces and people management steered him in forming this kind of race, which aims to develop leadership, discipline, dedication and teamwork among its racers.
Guerilla Race is patterned to actual military training, allowing participants to feel and experience at first hand the tough routines that our soldiers undergo in preparation to securing our nation. Hence, it raises participants’ level of awareness of how it pays to become a genuine Filipino soldier.
True to its mantra, “finish the race or die trying”, Guerilla Race recognizes Filipinos’ strength and determination as the organizer continues to intensify the race by coming up with new and interesting challenges to keep the race better every year. Guerilla Race’s Race Director Lt. Col. Bumanglag expresses, “If you want challenge, this [Guerilla Race] is really for you.”
Through the years, Guerilla Race has gained public attention with its participants vary from runners, gym buffs, weekend warriors and famous celebrities.
