Philippine Intl Marathon for the Pasig River in Feb 2009?

I received an SMS message earlier today saying that the “Philippine International Marathon for the Pasig River is confirmed to push through on the last Sunday of February 2009 as per Ms. Gay Maddela”.  Another text message says that an official announcement will be made via ABS-CBN by December.

Now if this information is really, really true (not that I don’t trust the person who sent me the info, of course i do!), then the running fairy may have been smiling to all runners here in the Philippines who are originally looking forward to run their first marathon on the then scheduled QC Marathon. Since the postponement of the QC Marathon have been announced and left most with few options, the Pasig River Marathon being held on Feb is one great, welcome news.

Anyone care to confirm this? 😉

P.S. Confirmation have been given by both Ms. Gay Maddela (race organizer) and Mr. Patrick Concepcion – RunningShield himself (who received the original info from Ms. Gay) – after this post have been published.
