Press release:

THE ROCK OF RACES:

RUNNERS ARE ALL FIRED UP FOR THE 1ST CORREGIDOR MARATHON &

4TH INTERNATIONAL HALF MARATHON

The canons have gone silent. The ruins have long been abandoned and towering memorials have been built. Philippine history’s valiant heroes have certainly made their mark on the legendary Corregidor Island. But up until today, the rocky island off the coast of Manila Bay still continues to awe many of us, including members of the running community here and around the world.

On December 7 and 8, 2013, troops of runners will head to the island to participate in the 1st ever Corregidor Marathon (CM) and the 4th Corregidor International Half Marathon (CIHM).

The 1st CM will have a total distance of 42.195km. It is designed to be the common ground of marathoners, ultra-runners and triathletes.

Participation in the 1st CM will be reserved for 88 seasoned marathoners only, with a set qualifying time. Because the half-marathon course of Corregidor could be viewed from the top as forming an “8”-shaped loop, runners must race through the course twice to complete the race, hence a “double 8.”

There will be one male and one female overall winner whose title will be Corregidor Marathon Man and Woman, respectively. Each winner will receive a Php30, 000.00 cash prize and a champion’s trophy. Age bracket top finishers will also be declared and will be awarded with a certificate of achievement.

In addition to the full marathon distance, the 1st CM will have shorter distance categories: the 5K Blitz and the 3K Thrill. Each of these distances shall have 150 slots. There will be no qualifying times required for the participants of these sub-categories nor will there be a sweep or cut-off time.

Since 2010, the CIHM has always aimed to become one of the premiere and sought-after races in the country. With its 4th installment happening on December 8, the rock stars of the sport will return for another shot at the title of King and Queen of the Rock. Close to 1,000 participants and visitors are expected to turn up – from intermediate recreational to hardcore runners. The 4th CIHM is designed to thrill, surprise and challenge runners by testing their mettle on all types of terrain.

In addition to the 21km main event, there will be a 10k Challenge for running enthusiasts who are yet to familiarize themselves with the challenging terrain of Corregidor. There will be no qualifying time to join this race category. Likewise, no sweep time will be observed.

The top male and female runners in this event will be awarded with a certificate of achievement and winner’s plaque. All finishers in this race category will be awarded with a 10km Achiever Medal. Only 300 slots will be opened for this side event.

Co-founders Edward Kho and Raymund Martelino are both thrilled for the two events. To them, the 1st Corregidor Marathon will usher in a new challenge among the running community and give rise to a new generation of Corregidor Island “conquerors.” As for the CIHM, the fact that more and more runners keep coming back for it is proof that the island never fails to inspire them to keep fighting their personal battles.

Registration for the 1st CM is ongoing and, for the 4th CIHM, registration will begin on October 1, 2013.

The 1st Corregidor Marathon and the 4th Corregidor International Half Marathon are managed by Big, Big, Big, Inc. and co-presented by Smart, Sun Cruises, and Soleus together with event partners Corregidor Foundation, Galileia Events Place, 100 Miles Café, L Time Studio, Runningmate, One Sceniques, Active Link, Toby’s, Runnr, media partners The Philippine Star, Pinoy Fitness, Mellow 94.7 FM, Takbo.ph, Inquirer Libre, Solar News and medical aid partner UERM Medical Center.

CIHM – Half The Experience, One Hundred Percent Enjoyment

The Corregidor International Half-Marathon (CIHM) race held last Saturday was a special treat for first-timer to the island like me. Though I ran (walk) the shorter distance which is 10K, the beautiful scenery, fresh air and the fun of taking pictures along the route are some of the things I really enjoyed there. If only I can run with a dslr, I have better shots of the ruins that can be found in this island fortress. I used the camera of my phone instead, so bear with the quality of photos I included in here.

Going to the island is more than an hour of ferry boat ride by Sun Cruises. Upon arrival at the pier; there are ‘tranvias’ that fetched us near the starting line. That day the weather was perfect, it was 8 o’clock in the morning with an overcast sky. Trees cover the start area up to a few dozen meters along the road and most of the length of the course. The organizers welcomed us, most especially Mr. Edward Kho, the race director and Atty. Raymund Martelino and while we waited for the gun start, the program hosts entertained the runners with their repertoire of jokes that even foreign participants had enjoyed.

The long uphill is a real challenge to those who had already experienced running in Tagaytay Midlands or Timberland in San Mateo, Rizal. If you are an obese like me :), you will feel a lot heavier running that route, making it difficult to speed up or sustain a decent pace. On the contrary, I felt pain on my right knee whenever I slowed down or try to walk downhill going to the finish line. The special treats:  cold sponges, jello, cranberry sweets, ready-to-pop bananas in the water stations and roses for lady 21k finishers, not to mention the sumptuous lunch buffet!

Damn, I guess I already injured my knee ‘coz up to now I am still labouring the pain; medicines did a little to alleviate it, aggravated by participating another race last Sunday. 🙂

CIHM 2012 – A Call to Arms

Tomorrow, November 23, 2012 is the final day for CIHM 3 registration. Hurry and go to SM Tickets to secure your slot for this much-awaited race of the year.  To see full details of the race please click here.

Runners are all laced up and ready to race in the 3rd Corregidor International Half Marathon on December 1, 2012. As the big race weekend approaches, event organizers are inviting more and more running enthusiasts to register until Friday, November 23, 2012 at 11:59pm.

Being the arena of one of the last major running events of the year, Corregidor Island is indeed mapped out and ready for the participants who will be flocking from all over the world. Runners from different countries will be coming in such as Ireland, the U.S., Australia, Japan, the Netherlands, France, Canada, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Filipino runners are also making a rally for the race. Runners from the eight key provinces that have played a major role in the Philippine Revolution will be present. These provinces are Cavite, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Batangas, Tarlac, Laguna and Manila. Participants from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will also be coming in.

Like King Leonidas’ army in “300,” their professions will no longer distinguish the runners. While organizers see a good mix of medical practitioners, lawyers, policemen, government employees, businessmen, salesmen, journalists, actors, call center employees, advertising executives, athletes, HR practitioners, OFWs, architects, engineers, chefs, artists, tech gurus, finance experts, international relations specialists and airline executives, the CIHM 3 will provide a level playing field for everyone.

The participants are expected to arrive on the island on November 30. Though the race on December 1 will be hard, the runners will be expected to party harder. Before the race “showdown” begins, they will be treated to a delicious carbo-loading dinner courtesy of Yellow Cab and a traditional bonfire at the South Dock. And post-race, a rave party will erupt courtesy of Manila Beer and will be hosted by the inimitable tandem of DJ Chris and DJ Chloe from Mellow 94.7. Exciting prizes will also be raffled off during the party courtesy of Soleus, Yellow Cab, Sun Cruises, Igco Skim Milk and other sponsors.

The 3rd Corregidor International Half Marathon is managed and organized by Big, Big, Big, Inc. presented by Soleus and Sun Cruises, Inc., in cooperation with Yellow Cab, Manila Beer, Corregidor Foundation, Running Mate, One Sceniques, ROX, L Time Studio, Igco Skim Milk, 38 Energy Drink, and the official hydration partners Summit Mineral Water and 100Plus Sports Drink and media partners The Philippine Star, Total Fitness Magazine, Business Mirror, Kulit Runner, Takbo.ph, MultiSport Magazine, Pinoy Fitness and Mellow 94.7.
