By its name itself, Lapu-lapu City is the home of one of the greatest undefeated heroes of the Philippines. And, being a hero’s land, it’s also the home of some of “heroes” in Cebu running community!
We’re lucky to be invited at their press conference, and be able to witness the strong team behind this race. So here are some of the Who’s Who of The Historic Resort City MARATHON – LAPU-LAPU 2014:
Lulu Valiente. Being a veteran in the running scene of Cebu, and coming from the hospitality business, she definitely knows how to give a memorable race with the best support runners could ask in races. For those who have been long in the running scene of Cebu, we might probably remember her “humba.” Humba, not because she’s that yummy, but because she’s known to pop-up randomly in any very long-distance races with her “humba” or any food and support to provide to the participants.
With her knowledge in handling races and runners, she knows what it takes to have a great running event; that’s why she is bringing in the help of veteran runners Doc Willie Estepa and Jacob Ong as Technical Directors and Marshal Leaders.
Doc Willie Estepa. Doc Willie is a charmer, not because he is the “linggam master.” But this guy knows the right strings to pull in every runner to push and motivate him in races. Just imagine the hundred of female runners finishing a 50-KM race every year in Cebu in the last 3 years? He’s one of the people of ThinkTank to be blamed.
Jacob Ong. The man with few words, and also the man who does not need much words to introduce him. So let’s just say that when he’s part of the organizing team, it’s going to be done! =)
And, if Cebu is known for being a haven of minimalist runners, it’s because this man is behind the Kai Running sandals, Cebu’s huarache version. So complaining that you cannot run because you have no running shoes? Check kairunning.com!
With this team and the support of LGU Lapu-lapu City and Lapu-lapu Runners Club, runners are taken cared of physically, mentally, and emotionally in this The Historic Resort City MARATHON – LAPU-LAPU Nov. 30, 2014! =)
