35th National MILO Marathon earns IAAF, AIMS certification


Yup, you read it right! The upcoming 35th National Milo Marathon can now serve as a qualifier for Boston Marathon.
For the first time in more than three decades, the 35th National MILO Marathon this year will be certified by the Association of International Marathons (AIMS) and the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF).

"This will bring a new dimension in the country’s biggest and longest-running footrace," said Rio dela Cruz, whose RunRio company will be managing all the 17 elimination races and the national finals set on December 11.

Dela Cruz added that all runners in all categories in all races will be equipped with a timing device that will ensure precise and computerized recording of all finishers’ times.

"All (times) will be computerized. There will be no need to give out markers because all runners’ clocking including those in the turnarounds will be recorded by the timing device in their bibs," said Dela Cruz. "This will not only hasten the results but will also minimize cheating. And for serious runners, I am assuring them that their exact clocking will be recorded."
