Quezon City Philippines International Marathon

Quezon City Philippines hosts their 2nd international marathon

The City government and the Executive Runners Club of the Philippines (Runnex) will stage the second QC International Marathon on Dec. 5 with another banner field expected to see action.

The event, billed as the biggest international marathon this year, features the 5K, 10K, 21K and 42K races with the field tipped to include beginners, weekend and professional runners.

The second QCIM is backed by the city government headed by Mayor Herbert Bautista and Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte.

Registration starts Monday and ends Nov. 7 at the R.O.X. Bonifacio High Street, Chris Sports outlets, Secondwind in Ortigas, the QC Hall and the Runnex office at Rm. 304 Bahay ng Alumni in UP Diliman.

Fees are pegged at P650 for the 42K, P500 for the 21K and P350 for the 5K and 10K runs. Race kits will be released on Nov. 27 and 28 at the Bahay ng Alumni, University of the Philippines, Diliman.

The races will start and end at the Quezon Memorial Circle.

The race routes feature the famous landmarks in the city, including the La Mesa Dam Eco Park and the UP campus.

Inspired by the huge turnout of last year's inaugurals, Runnex teamed up with Neville Manaois to ensure a safe and unique running experience for all participants.

Doing away with the usual come-on gimmicks of other races, QCIM will instead focus on the safety and needs of the runners by installing adequate water stations and deploying marshals to ensure that the action on the road is constantly monitored.

For details, call the Runnex secretariat at (02)435-5291, or visit www.runnex.org or QCIM2's official Facebook Page www.facebook.com/qcim2. ( PIA-MMIO Quezon City )
