For the third year, Cebu running community will celebrate the International All-Women’s Day showcasing the true grit and strength of women in a not-so-usual event, the All-Women Ultramarathon (AWUM). It is a 50-kilometer ultramarathon foot race exclusive to women organized by Think Tank with Cebu Ultrarunners Club (CUC).

I guess I can say that over time, it became more than an event by the organizers. It has become something everyone in Cebu running community, not only the women, look forward to every year. This is the day that the different local running groups, biking groups, and others will come out in the street to support and recognize the importance WOMEN.

So let me welcome our women friends from other provinces coming to Cebu to join in this celebration.

First off.
