Subic International Marathon 2012

I had a great time with their 2011 edition.  With eXtribe handling the race organization for the 2nd time around, I expect that the kinks will be ironed out this time.  I look forward to a bigger and better event on their next installment

If you are already keen on signing up, better check these hotels that are near the start/finish arc: Hotel Venezia (a stone's throw away), LaBella Hotel, Subic Bay Travelers Hotel, and Subic International Hotel.  If you find their room rates a bit steep, and I do, my best bet would be - Boardwalk Inn (P1,950/night).  Better reserve one now as they sell out really fast

Not unless you got deep pockets then The Lighthouse is the way to go and stay in one of their spacious and luxurious suites.  By the way, I am in no way connected or was asked to intentionally endorse the establishment.  I am simply playing with the thought that you'd bring me with you when you stay there.  That's all.  Pure wishful thinking

If you got time to spare, you may want to visit the following "tourist" attractions - Zoobic Safari, Ocean Adventure, Treetop Adventure, and JEST Camp.  Now if you are a good food junkie, like me, better drop by at Xtremely Xpresso Cafe (Dewey Avenue).  I also noticed that Rama Mahal Bar and Restaurant received some good reviews at TripAdvisor

I hope that Magz and the rest of the Subic Shutter Club will cover this event once more since they did a great job taking beautiful snaps the last time

does it have registration sites in manila based from your previous experience?

Daves said...

yes. they had chris sports as their registration partner and the race kits had to be picked up in Remy field

better book a room already if you are joining here. Boardwalk Inn ran out too quickly and I had to get a room from another hotel. see you! =)

how was the race last year? do they have enough hydration stations? how was the race route? flat or hilly? thanks

Daves said...

here's my thought bubbles from this year's event -

overall, it was a very nice event. hydration wasn't an issue at all compared to the previous years. the elevation profile for the half mary is available from the link above
