Royal Treatment for CIHM 2013’s King and Queen of the Rock

While most of the participants braved the waves riding the Sun Cruises ferry on their way back from Corregidor to Manila last Sunday, January 12, the CIHM top male and female winners, essentially 2013’s King and Queen of the Rock, got a special treatment – one fit for royalty!

You see folks, the organizers in partnership with tripmoba.com, travelled to Manila not by water but by air! Yes, Erinio Raquin and Luisa Raterta, by winning the top spot as 2013 King and Queen of the Rock were brought to the BGC from the Corregidor Island via a helicopter ride. This is, I believe, a first but great treat for out-of-town race winners.

Congratulations to Team Corregidor and to all winners and participants of this year’s Corregidor Marathon and Corregidor International Marathon.

CIHM 3 Last Day of Registration is on November 23!

The 3rd Corregidor International Half-Marathon is set to happen on December 1, 2012 at the historic and beautiful island of Corregidor. Incidentally, this race’s registration period is set to end by tomorrow, November 23. So those who have not signed-up yet but is intending to participate better register already!

Below is the official press announcement about it. Cheers!

CIHM PRE-RACE PR

 A CALL TO ARMS
November 23, 2012 is the final day for CIHM 3 registration

Runners are all laced up and ready to race in the 3rd Corregidor International Half Marathon on December 1, 2012. As the big race weekend approaches, event organizers are inviting more and more running enthusiasts to register until Friday, November 23, 2012 at 11:59pm.

Being the arena of one of the last major running events of the year, Corregidor Island is indeed mapped out and ready for the participants who will be flocking from all over the world. Runners from different countries will be coming in such as Ireland, the U.S., Australia, Japan, the Netherlands, France, Canada, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Filipino runners are also making a rally for the race. Runners from the eight key provinces that have played a major role in the Philippine Revolution will be present. These provinces are Cavite, Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Batangas, Tarlac, Laguna and Manila. Participants from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will also be coming in.

Like King Leonidas’ army in “300,” their professions will no longer distinguish the runners. While organizers see a good mix of medical practitioners, lawyers, policemen, government employees, businessmen, salesmen, journalists, actors, call center employees, advertising executives, athletes, HR practitioners, OFWs, architects, engineers, chefs, artists, tech gurus, finance experts, international relations specialists and airline executives, the CIHM 3 will provide a level playing field for everyone.

The participants are expected to arrive on the island on November 30. Though the race on December 1 will be hard, the runners will be expected to party harder. Before the race “showdown” begins, they will be treated to a delicious carbo-loading dinner courtesy of Yellow Cab and a traditional bonfire at the South Dock. And post-race, a rave party will erupt courtesy of Manila Beer and will be hosted by the inimitable tandem of DJ Chris and DJ Chloe from Mellow 94.7. Exciting prizes will also be raffled off during the party courtesy of Soleus, Yellow Cab, Sun Cruises, Igco Skim Milk and other sponsors.

The 3rd Corregidor International Half Marathon is managed and organized by Big, Big, Big, Inc. presented by Soleus and Sun Cruises, Inc., in cooperation with Yellow Cab, Manila Beer, Corregidor Foundation, Running Mate, One Sceniques, ROX, L Time Studio, Igco Skim Milk, 38 Energy Drink, and the official hydration partners Summit Mineral Water and 100Plus Sports Drink and media partners The Philippine Star, Total Fitness Magazine, Business Mirror, Kulit Runner, Takbo.ph, MultiSport Magazine and Mellow 94.7.
