Baguio was a host to more than 6,000 registered runners for MILO’s opening leg race in this year’s National MILO Marathon. Organizers are expecting a total of 200,000 runners through the 18 elimination legs in 17 cities to participate in the nationwide search for the best runners in the country today

500 school children from Baguio were given running shoes as a part of the “Help Give Shoes” advocacy of MILO which is currently on its third year of staging. Students from the Rizal Elementary School, Quirino Elementary School, Dona Josefa Elementary School, Mabini Elementary School, and Pine City Elementary School were the lucky beneficiaries. Andrew Neri, MILO Sports Executive, said MILO is donating another 10,000 shoes this year on top of the 14,200 count from the last 2 years

The 36th National MILO Marathon is made possible by Timex, the Bayview Park Hotel Manila and Reebok, along with partnerships with the Department of Education and the Philippine Olympic Committee.
