In the year 2000, Habagat Outdoor Equipment, Inc instituted the Carrera Habagat – a multi-day, multi-event adventure race that puts participants in a particular terrain and tests their outdoor skills.
Participants go through a sequence of control points which they have to locate using only a map and a compass. At these control points, their skills are put to the test through a series of activities such as kayaking, rapelling, mountain biking, running, and swimming. Other challenges – such as walking with stilts, climbing greased poles, and solving puzzles – also await the participants in different stages of the event.
Each team is allowed to have four members, with at least one member of the opposite sex, and two persons for their support crew. Throughout the race, each team has to carry mandatory equipment – without which it would be almost impossible for them to accomplish their tasks.
The race is held non-stop for four days and spread out in various locations at a selected province or island, thereby showcasing the natural beauty of the locality and increasing awareness regarding the fragility of the environment.
The Carrera Habagat is known as the toughest adventure race in the Philippines and has been the training ground for athletes and outdoorsmen from all over the country, such as Leo Oracion, Pastor Emata, and members of the Philippine Mt. Everest Expedition Team.
Team Santorini, champions of the 2001 Carrera Habagat: Mystique Island Quest in Siquijor, performed notably in the 2001 Eco-Challenge in New Zealand.
From 2001 until 2008, the Carrera Habagat has been held in places such as the Camotes Islands (Carrera Cordura, 2000), Camiguin (Island Paradise Traverse, 2002), Biliran Province (Battle of Biliran, 2004), Bucas Grande and Siargao Islands (Siargao-Bucas Grande Traverse, 2007), and Sto. Domingo, Albay (Isang Linggo sa Sto. Domingo, 2008).
This year, the Carrera Habagat will be held in Cebu Province from the 21st until the 25th of November, and will be one of the major activities for the celebration of Habagat’s 25 Years of Adventure.
