Yes, it’s official! The 2010 edition of the famous Condura running event will definitely be run at the Skyway!
Dubbed as Condura Run 2010, Run for the Dolphins, the event which is set to happen on Feb. 7, 2010 (a Sunday) will definitely have the Skyway as part of the route for its 21k and 42.195k race distances. This was finalized during the recent signing of the Memorandum of Agreement between Condura Run brothers Patrick and Ton Concepcion and OM Skyway Group representatives Mr. Ramoncito Borromeo and Mr. Ed Nepomuceno.
The event will also have 3k, 5k and 10k race distances but it is only the half and full marathon participants who will have a chance to pass along the skyway. But if the 4-way marathon relay being planned pushes through, participants will only need to run 10k each but still experience running on the skyway. Let’s keep our fingers-crossed for that!
The route for the first-ever Condura Run full marathon is still being finalized but according to the organizers, the route will take full marathon runners from the Fort up to the Kalayaan flyover into Buendia, up the Buendia off ramp to the Skyway all the way down the Bicutan exit where a u-turn will have to be made and run back to the Fort. Another exciting info is that the route will also take runners to the NAIA 3 Skyway on and off ramps. Whew! Just writing about this makes me giddy with excitement and gasping for breath. Challenging route huh?
More details will be available once the Condura Run 2010 website becomes available by the 14th of December.
Meanwhile, I enjoin participating runners to continue with their running training, hill-training very much included. As for me, I will be definitely relegated to joining just the 3k by then since that’s what is the most a woman with a “bump” can do to just be able to be there and run.
See you all at the Condura Run 2010!
Many thanks to Pat and Ton Concepcion for the event updates and for the photos.
