Quake-Run 2013 @ Ragnar Trail Relay
Vail Lake Resort, Temecula, CA
November 20, 2013

Laugh, cheer, smile, and get teary as a group of marathon runners decided to drive to the outskirts of Temecula, CA and pitched their tents for a race.  The earthquake and typhoon that devastated and rattled Bohol, Leyte, and certain parts of Cebu brought about the convergence of Team DeFeeters and DeFeeters Ultra on November 15-16 at the Ragnar Trail Relay in Vail Lake Resort, Temecula, CA to run and raise funds to help the victims get back on its feet.

Overall Total $ 3,040.00

240 miles, 12 runners, 2 teams' DeFeeters and DeFeeters Ultra took more than 22 hours running in the rugged mountains of Cleveland National Forest amidst dirt, mountainous trails, continuous uphill run, unforgiving knee pounding downhill, steep and punishing trails dodging tree stumps and branches, hanging on weeds and plants for the uphill throttle coupled with eerie solitude run at night with only the headlamp as a main source of light. Truly a high endurance marathon run with the goal of pooling funds to help the earthquake and typhoon victims in our homeland. The take-off from a long enduring run compensated with an overnight camping of live band entertainment, yoga, massage, movie, and the comfort of the campfire over food and beer while nestled into the wilderness communing with nature.

High fives to both teams- the Team DeFeeters' eight runners namely Shalom Hordista (Captain), Medette Bacareza, Agie Banaticla, Gladys Serroje, Bill Villarta, Edward Saberon, Charity Tumanan and Kourtney Vidal; the Team DeFeeters' Ultra  four runners namely Patrick Horidsta (Captain), Mo Banaticla, Fritz Santa Ana, Joanna Rivera-Santa Ana. We salute them for bringing in the spirit of a successful marathon run to help our brothers and sisters displaced from their homes while in dire need of basic necessities.  Both teams raised a total of $3,040 and this goes an extra mileage to buy building materials for the homeless.  Cheers!
