On my way to prestige (pre Milo Marathon)

It was 1974 when the first Milo Marathon took place in the country. It was won by NUMERIANO TITONG finishing strong at 3:04:10. Now on it’s 34th year, thousands of runners joined either to compete, set a new PR, beat the cut off time or qualify for the finals. It is said to be the most prestigious marathon race in the country and with that it would award the best gift to every Milo Marathon Finisher, the Milo Marathon MEDAL.


The MOST prestigious of medals for all local races

This marathon race has a cut off time and you need to finish the race within that or you won’t be certified as a milo marathoner. Meaning, no medal too. Not all marathoners are Milo Marathoners.

This year, I’ll be running the full marathon. This would be my first full and i’m so excited to do it in the best race in the Philippines. It’s every runners dream to finish a marathon, and for me that dream will be fulfilled this Sunday–being a certified marathoner. Well, that’s just an understatement… a “MILO MARATHONER” that is.

Godspeed to all runners!
