CIHM: Corregidor International Half Marathon September 30, 2010

This race as what the race organizer Mr. Edward Kho had said is not a race for everyone, this race would serve as a validation of your pikermi and marathon races that you’ve joined and finished. This race is a tough race that one should take seriously, proper training must be done in order to finish the race.

“Corregidor International Half Marathon is aimed to become one of the premiere and much-awaited races in the country. It will be held annually in the historic and scenic Corregidor Island on the 2nd or 3rd week of December, making it thus the final major race of the year. This year it is set to fire-off on DECEMBER 19.

One of the distinctive features of the race is that there will be no finish cut-off for the race. However, a 1 hour and 45 minutes curfew from gunstart will be imposed andthe 10Km half-way turn-around point for participants to be allowed to continue the race. All runners who have not crossed the half-way mark within the curfew shall be cleared out from the course by tranvias and will be awarded the 10KM achievement medal. All runners who have successfully crossed the halfway mark and manage to finish the 21Km distance will be awarded with the Corregidor International Half Marathon medallion.

All participants will receive a Corregidor International Half Marathon backpack containing the race bib with RFID timing chip, race route map, and Corregidor International Half Marathon Runner’s shirt.
