Road Party

Cebu had one of its biggest street party, probably next to Sinulog, last Sunday: the 37th Milo Marathon 2013 – Cebu (rate or share pic/ experience here >>). It was attended by 24,000 plus participants, which probably made Cebu to have the biggest number of attendants of all the provincial legs like last year (Source: Sun-Star Cebu).

It was also attended by Mayor Mike Rama, who upgraded his basketball shorts into jogging pants. The Miss Cebu’s were also there. (We will be posting a separate with more details post for 37th Milo Marathon 2013 – CebuPlease keep posted.)

Off-road Party

Meanwhile, in Lilo-an, known for Xterra and Tintay’s Rosquillos, had its yet another off-road duathlon event, 1st Sambag Off-Road Duathlon Race Challenge (rate or share pic/ experience here >>) . Unlike the Milo Elimination – Cebu Leg, this one was more low-key. Of course, it’s probably very wrong to compare events by Runrio and LICOMBA organizers. But nevertheless, the satisfaction is big-time high for both.

Race Story: Someone is always faster.

The Greater Challenge

Tayabas City, Quezon had a marathon, Quezon Marathon 2013 (rate or share pic/ experience here >>), which highlighted their Malagonlong Bridge. Thus the bridge certainly deserves a self-portrait.

On a serious note, it’s a run for a cause whose beneficiaries are:

“1. Supported Gawad Kalinga (MSEUF-Pil. Institute of Civil Engineering),

2. Student Study Bench (SLSU-College of Engineering),

3. Manage to support talented running athletes to try their luck and expose them on joining International Running Event like CAMSUR INTERNATIONAL MARATHON 2011.

4. And other Educational related projects that our partners entered into”
