Clark Sunset Marathon 2017

Tourism Promotions Board Philippines and the Clark Development Corporation announces the upcoming Clark Sunset Marathon happening on December 9, 2017, at the Parade Grounds of Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga at 4pm. It is the first of its kind ever conceptualized in the Philippines. The Clark Sunset Marathon is a race conceptualized and organized by RUNRIO, Inc. and was inspired by the fact that in tropical countries like the Philippines, the weather is mostly hot and humid. A night run is the perfect running event for running enthusiasts to have a more cooler and more exciting race experience.

Clark Sunset Marathon features running categories in 5KM, 10KM, 21KM and 42KM with the full marathon’s gun start happening at 5pm. The 21KM, 10KM and 5KM follow shortly at 5:15pm, 5:30pm and 5:45pm respectively.


The race event is expected to attract a total of 5,000 running enthusiasts coming from all parts of the country, as well as runners from other parts of the world. “The Clark Sunset Marathon comes at an opportune time when we are being very aggressive in promoting Clark Pampanga as one of the country’s premiere tourist hub.” Said Noemi Julian, manager, Clark Development Corporation, Tourism Promotions.


In partnership with Tourism Promotions Board Philippines and Clark Development Corporation the Clark Sunset Marathon aims to establish Clark, Pampanga as a venue of world-class running events in the Philippines. The activity also aims to establish this event as a premiere international marathon foot race in the country by securing route standard accreditation from AIMS/IAAF, the international governing body for distance races in the world.


For the inaugural year, runners can choose five categories and their cut-off times. 42K-7 hours, 21K - 4 hours, 10K – 2 hours and 5k – 1 hour.

Clark Sunset Marathon is also targeting foreign runners to join the race that will culminate with the Clark Sunset Marathon Music Festival, an after party celebration at the finish line. The activity will showcase DJs that will provide the party atmosphere of the running event.  It will be a night of running and partying with DJ Ashley Rivera and DJ Tom Taus dishing out the coolest music. This will make sure that participants, their families and friends will have a good time,” said Andrew Neri, managing partner, RUNRIO Events, Inc.

41st National MILO Marathon Davao Leg

Hard work and passion equipped the athletes during the 41st National MILO Marathon Davao leg on Sunday, October 22. Richeel Languido and Judelyn Miranda emerged triumphant as they landed first place at the 21K half marathon. Almost 10,000 runners conquered the streets to race for the finish line. Training directors of the Philippine Olympic Committee, and celebrity training coaches Jim and Tony Saret led the pre-race warm up sessions for the elite athletes and category runners, respectively.

Richeel Languido earned the top spot at the 21K half marathon with 1:15:14 at the clock, closely followed by Michale Echalieco (1:18:29) and Arnie Macaneras (1:20:19). Meanwhile, over at the female division, Judelyn Miranda, who also topped the Davao leg in the 39th National MILO Marathon in 2015, clocked in at 1:32:07, followed by Vivian Avegonzado at 1:41:38 and Lalaine Payricio at 1:42:22. Supporters should expect to see the two winners once again at the National Finals in Cebu City on December 3 to try and claim the title of MILO Marathon King and Queen.

It was clear that the 31-year old Richeel Languido was in the perfect condition to win the competition. He dominated the field and was ahead of everybody right from the start. Though it may seem that it was an easy challenge for him he admitted that the race was not an easy challenge. “I had a hard time going back since the route was uphill and it is also my first time in Davao. Luckily, I was able to make it up in the last 3K or 4K,” says Languido. He shared his training regimen which comprised of an hour and a half run before heading to work and a 30-minute jog before heading home. Richeel plans on bringing his wife and children along with him for the CDO leg; “It’s fun to join the MILO Marathon. You get to bond with your friends. I plan to bring my wife and kids to the CDO race so they can experience the thrill and excitement for themselves”.

The National MILO Marathon will continue in Butuan (November 12) and Cagayan De Oro (November 19). The National Finals in Cebu City will be on December 3.

Team 7-Eleven Philippines in Vietnam

This year’s Da Nang International Marathon was successfully concluded in Danang, Vietnam with six Filipino runners, representing Team 7-Eleven Philippines, taking podium spots in the full marathon and half-marathon races .

Lany Cardona of Pangasinan cruised through the 42km race to land as the champion of the women’s division, finishing the course in 03:27:26 while Rafael Pescos of Davao finished second in the men’s division with a finish time of 02:40:06. Richard Salano, a member of the Philippine Army secured the third spot in the podium of the 21km race with a finish time of 1:20:36 while the trio of Jho-An Banayag-Villarma (01:31:53), Nhe-Ann Barcena (01:37:08) and Ruffa Sorongon (01:37:38) swept the first, second and third spots of the 21km women’s category.

Meanwhile, Lizane Abella (4:20:19) and Azlan Pagay (3:02:06) took the Top 1 honors in their respective age group for the 42km and Kennechie Lorbes (1:49:10) took Top 5 for his Age Group in the 21km race.

“Masaya kami kasi ang 7-Eleven ay walang sawa na pinadadala kami sa ganitong international race.” said Lany Cardona who together with Rafael Pescos were given a slot to race in the Shonan International Marathon happening on December in Kanagawa, Japan with all expenses paid, as part of their prize for winning in the 42km category of this race.

Nine Filipino runners participated in this morning’s race, four of them in the full marathon while five in the half-marathon – a fulfillment of the commitment given by Philippine Seven Corporation (7-Eleven Philippines) to the top 3 (male and female) marathon and full marathon winners of the 7-Eleven Run that was held in the Filinvest City, Alabang last February.

According to Project Head Ms. Michelle Saludes, “We at 7-Eleven want to give Filipino runners not part of the Philippine Team the opportunity to showcase their abilities and be recognized in an international competition.”

Local and foreign participants coming from 50 countries, competed in the Da Nang International Marathon 2017 where the route brought the experience of running through Da Nang’s beautiful coastline passing the bridges across the poetic Han’s river in the middle of the city during sunrise.

This is the fifth year that 7-Eleven Philippines has brought Filipino runners to an international race giving them full support from taking care of all expenses, pocket money and with the help of sponsor Asics Tiger, a complete race suit.

“We will continue to encourage runners who aspire to represent the country in an international competition through the 7-Eleven Run Series which we are planning to expand by having another race in Cebu before the year ends and which will serve as a qualifying race to the 7-Eleven Run happening in Manila next year.” shared Mr. Jose Ang Jr., General Merchandise Division Head.

The participation of Filipino runners was made possible through the effort of Philippine Seven Corporation together with the support of sponsors Safeguard, Selecta Ice Cream, Pocari Sweat, Del Monte, Nature’s Spring, Summit Water, Dole Pineapple, Powerade, Solar Sports, CNN Philippines, Skyway, Filinvest and Asics.

Veterans Ruled the Pilot Race in Urdaneta

In true festive fashion, the city of Urdaneta showed its overwhelming enthusiasm in the first race of the 41st National MILO Marathon. Around 12,000 runners hit the streets to race the finish line. Running veterans Julius Sermona and Christabel Martes took the spotlight and placed first in the 21K male and female categories, respectively. They each took home the top purse of P10,000 in cash and a trophy, and booked their slots to the National Finals in Cebu on December 3 to try and claim the MILO Marathon King and Queen titles.

In the male category, Julius Sermona clocked in with the time of 1:15:31, followed by Hernani Sore in the second place (1:17:21), and Romulo Ballnas Jr. in the third place (1:20:45). In the female category, Christabel Martes posted a time of 1:23:45, while Rowena Valdez finished second place (1:47:12), and Quipsie Isabel Milagros in third (1:54:10).

Sermona believes that joining marathons not only stimulates one athlete’s passion for running, it also provides physical fitness. “Running, for me, is all about health,” he said. “Physical fitness is integral to a runner’s development, especially to the kids and I am very proud to be a part of a community that promotes these values.”

In the distaff side, former SEA Games athlete Martes easily raced her way to the finish line. Augmented by the spacious roads and smooth terrain, the Baguio native revealed that the features enabled her to comfortably outpace her closest competitors, “I just stayed at my own pace,” she said. “I am very pleased with the route and it helped me stayed in the lead from start to finish.”

With a new feather on her cap, Martes shared that humility remains to be her most important value. “Whenever I win, I always remind myself to be humble,” she said. “I am happy and thankful to be called as an inspiration to many, and I hope that I continue to do so while keeping my feet on the ground.”

More than a staunch advocate of Philippine sports and Filipino athletes, the National MILO Marathon is also a platform that empowers children nationwide. For the past 7 years, the National MILO Marathon’s Help Give Shoes advocacy, in partnership with Department of Education, has inspired 70,000 aspiring athletes to fulfill their dreams by donating brand new pairs of running shoes. This year, the Help Give Shoes advocacy will be donating 5,000 pairs to underprivileged school children.

The National MILO Marathon will continue in Laoag (July 23), Metro Manila (July 30), Angeles (August 6), Tarlac (August 13), Naga (August 27), Lucena (September 03), Lipa (September 10), Tagbilaran (September 24), Roxas (October 1), Iloilo (October 8), General Santos (October 15), Davao (October 22), Butuan (November 12), and Cagayan De Oro (November 19).
