Frequently Asked Questions
1 Does the registration fee cover accommodations in the island?
No. Accommodations, however, range only from P1600 to P2400 per night per room. A standard room could accommodate three persons comfortably. It may be arranged through Sun Cruises at these numbers: 8346857/8346858 / 5275555 loc 4511 or 4512
2 Is there any other option for accommodation if I were to go overnight?
Yes. CIHM participants may opt to camp out with their own tent. They only have to make a one-time payment of Php200 per tent to Sun Cruises. The camp site is at the parade grounds adjacent to the South Dock and facing the beach. Those who will camp out need not worry about their lavatory needs. Though spartan in nature, there are more than ample clean washroom and restroom cubicles that are very proximate to the tent grounds
3 Still concerning those going overnight, where could they avail of their meals ?
Sun Cruises operates Corregidor Inn where CIHM participants may dine out in a welcoming restaurant. Alternatively, there are several kiosks in the island such as that in McCarthur’s Inn where participants may check out other meal options
4 Will CIHM participants camping out be allowed to bring camping stoves?
Mini camping stove or similar devices that will produce a relatively minimal combustion may be allowed to be brought in by participants who will camp out
5 Will there be a sweep time for CIHM participants?
None. CIHM participants need not worry about being swept off the race course after a particular time. However, for a participant to finish the race, he/she needs to reach the half-way checkpoint on or before 1hr45min from gunstart. Participants who will be unable to do so, however, will be awarded with a 10K Achiever medal and will be brought to the Finish area onboard the Sun Cruises tranvias. All participants who will successfully finish the 21k distance will be awarded with the CIHM Finishers’ Medallion
6 Will Corregidor be open to regular tourists on the day of the race?
No. The island will be exclusive to CIHM participants on Dec 9 and 10. This means that CIHM racers could totally enjoy a traffic-less and urban-nuisance-free race amidst a dramatic backdrop, and that is only in Corregidor
7 How many hydration stations will there be on the race course?
There will be 8 hydration stations, including one at the finish area, at 2km interval from each other
