1:17! That was the time of the 1st Finisher of the Corregidor Half-Marathon last January 12, 2014. Corregidor, also commonly called “The Rock” never fails to give an unforgettable “UPHELL” experience to even the most seasoned runner.
But besides the rocky hills and challenging race route, Corregidor is also known to have great spectacular view of old World War II ruins which serves as a military memorial to American, Filipino and Japanese soldiers who fought or lost their lives on the island.
Corregidor is now one of the most important historic destinations for tourists in the country.
So this year, me and my friends decided to hit 2 birds with one stone, rather than just racing “The Rock” we decided to take the “Tour” while running the Half-Marathon and turned this race to our very own Race-cation.
Here’s some photos of the great views from the race!
This year! The Corregidor Race Organizers also launched the very first Corregidor Marathon! Double the Challenge, Double the FUN! Right!? Right!? :D Just take a look at the Double the size Corregidor Marathon Medal!
So whatever your reason may be, either to take on the challenging “uphells” or take a tour around Corregidor, this race is definitely a race to mark in your calendar!
Special thanks to Teammate Ria, and friends Nylah and Jo-anne for joining me in this race-cation adventure! And ofcourse to Edward Kho organizer of the Corregidor Marathon and Half-Marathon for the great privilege of having Pinoy Fitness as an official Media Partner of the race.
