Quezon Marathon 2013 – September 22, 2013


This 2013 will be the 3rd year that Quezon Run will be having its annual running event. From 2,000 runners in Quezon Run 2011, 4,364 runners in 2012 QUEZON RUN – Run to Build, Run to Explore, Run in Quezon Province.

From its primary objective of promoting running and tourism in Quezon Province and producing a standard quality running event , this also serves as a fund raising among partner organizations all over Quezon Province. In the last 2 years Quezon Run Committee shared & donated an almost 200,000 pesos to its partnered group and organizations. The amount was used for their respective projects:

1. Supported Gawad Kalinga (MSEUF-Pil. Institute of Civil Engineering),
2. Student Study Bench (SLSU-College of Engineering),
3. Manage to support talented running athletes to try their luck and expose them on joining International Running Event like CAMSUR INTERNATIONAL MARATHON 2011.
4. Educational related projects

These are just some of the projects that most of the Quezon Run Committee partnered organizations entered into.

And this year will be a GREATER CHALLENGE because we are aiming for the BIGGEST RUNNING EVENT in QUEZON PROVINCE plus the chance to see some of the historical places, famous delicacies and sceneries that Quezon Province can offer.

      • Any chance na mababaan ang reg fees sir? This is in consideration to the transportation and lodging of participants from NCR. Kahit konti lang naman. I believe that the general sentiment is that races held in Metro Manila are getting more and more expensive. A lot of running enthusiasts are dying to run new routes – inside and outside Metro Manila. What you will mark down from the reg fee, you will recover it back sa volume of participants. Not a bad trade off i think. Baka lang naman sir. I’m sure maganda din and route niyo, i’m sure gusto niyo din maging successful ang event niyo tulad ng kakatapos lang na patakbo sa laguna/quezon (which is incidentally still the talk of the town due to it’s utter succes in all aspects). Tatakbo din ako sa event ninyo sir, no mistake about that. consolation na lang kung makabawas konti sa reg fee.

    • To : James Maregu as of the moment the cash prize for 42km category is being finalize by the Quezon Marathon Committee.

  6. Hi JOB! I am sorry this is the least that the Quezon Run Committee can give due to our inclusions especially for 42km race distance. FYI, this is the 3rd year of our Annual Running event and we add some other inclusions based on the request of our runners & participants. We afraid that if we lessen the amount of reg fee it will surely affect the outcome and objective of this race.We do hope that you understand the said matter.B

  7. There are things we are carefully considering for this event 1)closure of some selected roads 2) payment to the beautiful venue 3) adding of RFID with race data analysis and split timing system 4) Since we will close some of the roads we need to add additional manpower or approximately 400 marshalls 5)the physical preparation will) take 2 days or 48 hours at least 6)Since we are from Province the costs of promotions and marketing is not free 7) The use of larger clocks,entertainment like guests artists and the likes.8) prizes for top finishers.

    We are hoping for your kind consideration dear runners and friends.

  8. saan malalaman ung prizes ng top 3? sana bukod nyo naman prizes ng local at international.. or kahit sana bawal sila sa prizes.

    • Hi Rhon, Are you an elite runner? we always seperate that on our race prizes don’t July we will post the whole details in our upcoming website.

    • Hi ARNEL, incase na wala ka makasama going to the venue the most conveniet way Sir Arnel is to ride in a bus 2:30-3 hours from MAKATI BUENDIA STATIONS either JAC LINER or JAM LIMER going to LUCENA CITY then along crossing DIVERSION ROAD you will ride in a jeep ging to TAYABAS CITY about 200-220 pesos only.

    • Hi NAS !

      As of the moment there are lots of inquiries from our runners who want to participate the upcoming QUEZON MARATHON 2013.

      FROM MANILA its just 2 rides going to the venue.

      If you are from MAKATI or nearby MAKATI a BUS STATION named JAM LINER/JAC LINER around 2.5 -3 hours travel from MAKATI to LUCENA CITY and from LUCENA CITY DIVERSION ROAD ehh isang sakay po ng jeep going to RIZAL PARK,TAYABAS CITY,QUEZON PROVINCE (about 12- 15 minutes ride).

      IF you are from CUBAO/ORTIGAS AREA there’s a station in Kamuning/Kamias named JAC LINER/JAM LINER also the same procedure above.

      Usually we are advising the terminals to operate 24 hours like last year as early as 8pm -2am we have runners from ALABANG and MANILA who just ride via bus liners.

      Riding in a bus is the most comfortable way Sir. The same as how we participated in most runs in MANILA we are just riding in a bus and jeepneys.

      Im sure sir you’ll enjoy the experience of running here in Quezon Province since this is our 3rd Runniversary.

      We advice you to have an atleast 6 hours allowance when you leave MANILA.

      We will allocate two large tent for those runners that will be early in the venue for them to take a nap or we suggest to avail some of the chip hotels in the City around 350 -1900 php and some first class hotels for those who wants to stay longer in the City.

      For further details pls visit Quezon Run on facebook but we will study your proposal Sir.

      Regarding the Security since this event is part of the Provincial Office project the PNP and visibility of our PNPs will be 24 hours so nothing to worry abouth it Sir.

      Sincerely Yours,

      Quezon Run Secretariat
