I have been running for 2 years now and can probably call myself a certified addict when it comes to running races. I started running 3 kms. And now up to a full Marathon (42 kms.). In fact, I have been joining out-of-town races locally and even International to enjoy the different sceneries and take time out from work, making running races a vacation put into one. It’s the best weekend for me.
In these running escapades, it is a challenge to find a place to stay or spend the night most especially if you are not familiar with the place. As runners, we want to be very accessible to the place at the same time be more practical on our budget as well.
So to all out of town runners or even local runners wanting to join a race here in Cebu City and does not want to hassle yourself with a hotel or bed space hunting, here is a tip on where you can find a convenient and really affordable budget hotel.
CASA AMIGO Cebu stands for hospitality, comfort and great value. It is conveniently located in Echavez Street and very accessible to most or almost all major race locations in town. It is just 5 minutes away from Cebu Business Park, 10 minutes from Cebu I.T. Park and SM City Cebu, 5 minutes from Fuente Circle or Jones Avenue and approx. 15 minutes away from the South Reclamation Project (SRP).
CASA AMIGO has an Amigo Room that can accommodate 4 or 6 persons in one room making it even more affordable if you come in groups.
We will also offer special discounts to Runners who register online via www.aktib.ph!!!
