The Cebu City Marathon
10 January 2010
Categories: 5K / 21K / 42K


You might be surprised why there is no 10K event for this race. The logic? They’re urging runners who have gotten used to running 10K to move up to the next level, so to speak. As such, they want veteran runners to test their skills and bravura by signing up for the 21K route. The 5K event is retained for those who want to try out running. And for the first time, the queen city of the south will have its very first 42K route, which will pass by the IT Park, the SRP, a portion of the Cebu Business Park, and Banilad. This is a good route indeed – it covers east to west and back.

In addition, this activity will be part of the Sinulog festivities next year. This race should be grand in itself. =)

Registration will start sometime in September. Watch out for it.

For those who deign on joining these races, train well, hydrate frequently, keep your spirits at par, and the best of luck! See you on the road! =)

  1. The cebu marathon certainly is great news! i’ve always wanted to run in cebu. i just hope they’d have registration centers here in manila!

    Hello there Wilson!

    Yup, the Cebu City Marathon is something worth looking out for. If my project here in the queen city of the south extends until next year, maybe I can register for you. =)

    Just the same, I hope their registration extends up to Luzon!

    Hi Dennis,

    I can tell that you’re pumped to run this one. Once I get word that registration is now open, I’ll let the public know about it.

    See you soon, bro! =)
