  33. An ideal marathon for me goes beyond fine weather, perfect roads and fancy lootbags. I wish to run a marathon with
    the least appreciated people:
    those with weight problems, those laden with insecurity, those with asthma, those feeling the brunt of daily living, because i know running will empower us to outdo ourselves and send our insecurities away – and when that happens, a new person emerges: a more determined runner who sees a brighter and healthier him, one kilometer at a time.

    if selected to win, I will run 42km in their name and hopefully, inspire more people to love this sport.

  39. WHAT IS FOR YOU IS AN IDEAL PHILIPPINE MARATHON RACE?”

    Answer: For me, an ideal Philippine Marathon Race is somewhat like the marathon race of other countries, wherein the runners are mostly athletes. It is quite risky to run if a person don’t have enough experience on marathons. But I don’t say that they’re not allowed. I’m just making sure that all of the runners will end the marathon safely! 😀 Hopefully, many athletes out there will join this marathon. Hope to see all of you guys!

  40. For me, an ideal Philippine marathon race should be IAAF certified and is part of the world marathon majors so as to attract the best runners in the world.

  41. For me, an ideal Philippine marathon race would be a run which would be held annually not only to promote the race itself but the country as well by using the event as a means to promote Philippine tourism. For the government to support the event by mandating the run date as a special holiday throughout the country.

  42. A race that has same passion as the marathoners in the 80s and 90s.

  57. An ideal marathon is the one with a good weather (but no one can control this), secure baggage counter, enough hydration and banana stations/medics/portalets, enough kilometer markers and signages, lots of freebies, nice singlet and medal, and many race photographers. Almost all those earlier mentioned are for the organizers end. But it’s also best if the runner himself/herself is properly-trained for the race with the heart of a winner. And since this is a “Philippine” marathon, both the runners and organizers should show patriotism to our country by showing how passionate the heart of a Filipino runner is. All these ingredients concocted in one event, are what will make a Philippine Marathon ideal.

  58. An ideal Philippine Marathon for me is the one that is well planned and well executed. From route to hydration station, from gunstart to finish line. It’s also best for me to be emotionally, physically, and mentally prepared so as to deliver optimum result after the race. (Karlene Sebastian, karlene_ej20@yahoo.com)

  64. An ideal philippine marathon for me is where runners can feel the true spirit of sportmanship and camaraderie among other runners. A marathon should also have an ample hydration station and lots of bananas 🙂

  65. The ideal Phil. Marathon race will always be the most awaited event every year, first we have to consider the weather, the route, and the medals and frebies as well, that’s what most of the runners wanted..so that runners will feel more successful as long as they can satisfy an effort to learn and improve and some runners strive to achieve their goals for personal satisfaction and self-improvement while others compete with their surroundings in achievement settings to simply be classified as the best and to let everyone enjoy the race for in the love of running… Basta ako.. i will always compete with my self.. the former me versus me at present..

  88. An ideal Philippine Marathon Race for me I guess is the one that will takes me on the places where we grow up. A route where we see significant places that are once been part of our childhood. Crossing the same pavement we walked once when we were young. But this time we’re running on it! As we passed every street, memories of our childhood are starting to restore. Childhood friends and once foes are lined on the streets; maybe all we can do that time is to give them a big smile and the full determination to finish this race of life.

    There was a famous quote I read that if you wanted to have a new life, run a marathon. But this marathon will not only give us a realization in life, it will also bring us forgotten memories that are once part of our life.

  94. An ideal Phil.Marathon for me is like the MILO Marathon..so many runners ran happy with their family..aside from the 21k and the 42k distances whose beat off their records to get in for the cut offs..however these races are a good example for the filipinos to let their family join and get bond toghether.

  95. For me an Ideal Philippine Marathon is a Race for all FILIPINO only, no FOREIGN, so all pinoy runners can enjoy and compete for the prize, also a new route for a good ambiance of the race.

  96. An ideal Philippine Marathon Race for me is a well planned race that will give every runners a very memorable experience, from sufficient hydration, and responsive medical team, and a safe route. Also, very useful kits that every finisher would want to take home aside from the smiles on their faces because they made it to the finish line. 🙂

  108. Answer: An ideal Philippine marathon race is to run a race with kids along the road motivating the runners to finish the race particularly in the last 3 kms.

  109. A new PR to beat because of the new challenging route is an Ideal Philippine Marathon for me, because it will push me to the limits.

  110. An ideal Philippine Marathon race for me is a new & challenging route (different from the one used by Milo every year).

    Also, I hope the venue will be different every year, not just in Metro Manila, but in the provinces as well (like Cebu for next year then the following year Davao, etc.). That way, our talented locals will have the chance to join and compete with their skills. There are potential runners out there in the provinces, they just DONT have the resources to travel to Manila. Hopefully, Unilab Active can give them discounted reg fee, if not FREE.
