The Salomon Xtrail Run 2015 kicked off with the 1st Salomon Xtrail 101 last December 5 at The District North Point (Ayala). The aim of the event was to educate participants on trail running as well as to prepare them for the race. Experienced and awarded runner Jojo Bonnin was the guest speaker and he shared his knowledge and experience to the group.
As the Salomon Xtrail is a green running event, the 101 was also the venue for the DENR Forest and Wildlife Protection Information Campaign to spread awareness about the state of the Negros forests. Ms. Rose Pablico of the DENR, also a runner herself, gave an extensive talk on the subject.
