Taráy Pamulinawen 2012: LAOAG MARATHON – Feb 25, 2012

laoag_marathon_2012

On it’s second year running, Taráy Pamulinawen still offers the majestic Laoag Sand Dunes. From last year’s “can’t-get-enough” 3k dune segment, it now stretches to an “indulge-all-you-want” 12k sunny, sandy experience. As part of the month-long celebration of Laoag City’s Annual February Pamulinawen Festival, the Taráy (Ilocano word for “run”) features some of the city’s prized jewels.

Aside from the famous sand dunes with the seemingly endless South China Sea in the background, it displays the centuries-old sinking bell tower and the grand St. William Cathedral, the historical tobacco monopoly monument, the vintage city hall, the provincial capitol with its new revolutionized image, the imposing Gilbert bridge and the colonial period-inspired Fort Ilocandia Resort Hotel. In the midst of cultural cornucopia of ilocano songs, dances, beauty pageants and parades of floats, a tour of beautiful Laoag is but a fitting climax to celebrating the city’s and its people’s grandeur. And what better way to tour than on one’s two feet? The Taráy gives just that perfect tour. From the previous year’s 11miler, history unfolds as Laoag City hosts its first ever full marathon. This is also Laoag’s answer to the call of the second running boom. With this fiesta that honors Laoag’s patron – St. William, the hermit, Taráy Pamulinawen 2012 is truly a feast for the legs, the heart and the eyes.
