CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Gealon Racing Team of Cebu City Councilor Rey Gealon made their presence felt on all fronts after racking up wins in various races around Visayas throughout the weekend.

The team’s elite long-distance runner, Kelvin Boyles, wound up in second place in the grueling 32-kilometer trail run dubbed the “Tubod Monte Road to Trail” in Jagna, Bohol, last Sunday.

Boyles conquered the rugged, high-elevation 32k run that traversed the world-renowned Chocolate Hills, Mounts Palingkod, and Taliwtiw in Bohol.

Boyles is currently competing in another race, the Mt. Beto Summit Trail Run in Alicia, Bohol, which features a 9k trail run as of this writing.

In Cebu, the Gealon Racing Team racked up a bunch of first-place and podium finishes in ANDOT’s Criterium Race.

In the women’s executive category, one of the team’s founding members, Fiscal Hazel Caraballe, ruled the women’s executive category.

Joining her on top of the podium was teammate Philip Saenz, who placed first in the 50-above male category. His teammates Paul Gambong and Arnold Virtudazo completed the top three placers by finishing second and third, respectively.
