This is one of the exciting ANNUAL races I look forward to. Ive been wanting to join this race
but I was always reluctant to join due to the cut-off. Then I learned after cohosting with Coach
Edward Kho in a hypersports event .. that there is NO FINISHLINE cut-off, but a qualifying time.
But this doesnt give one to have the liberty to totally get lost in the scenic route picture taking and
What makes this race exciting? Its going to be in the historic island of CORREGIDOR! If you havent
been here, this is truly a must go destination and a must race event!
Imagine running in scenic corregidor.
Oh!!! the HILLS!!!! known to be one of the toughest race route.. its one of the races even Coach Rio
was challenged to in which he was a podiumed. This is the 3rd year and I was just turning green with
envy as I saw the photos of the participants in the last years.
Cost concerns wise.. please mind that you will ride a ferry / boat cruise courtesy of SUN CRUISE
going to Corregidor so pretty much its all about paying for the EXPERIENCE !
If youre into goodies, it couldnt get any better then this.
Ill be racing there. My goal Im just praying I GET BACK TO THE FERRY GOING BACK TO MANILA
THE SAME DAY!!!! I have to remember that the race route is 21k and varying in hilly grades.
Race details are as follows:
CIHM boasts of itself as one of the toughest foot races in the country where participants
experience to run on all types of terrain – paved ascents and downlopes, grass, forest trail, rocky
cliffside, and the lung-busting 60° hill climb spanning over 600meters. It will run from the north
side of the island at the Lorcha Dock, the historic landmark where McArthur broke the lines of
the then advancing Japanese offense to ﬁnish at the panoramic South pontoon. Key highlights of
the 10K course, meanwhile, include the spectacular topside featuring the picturesque historical
Battery vestiges, a jaunt through the Eternal Flame monument and Spanish Lighthouse, past the
Mile Long Barracks
One of the distinctive features of the race is that it is a very tough foot race in terms of the course
and technical rules. There will be a qualifying time (Men – 3h30m; Women – 3h45m) for this
year’s edition of the CIHM. There will be no ﬁnish time cut-off for the race, however. All runners
who have successfully managed to ﬁnish the entire 21km distance will be awarded with the
Corregidor International Half-Marathon Medallion and Finisher’s Certiﬁcate upon crossing the
Aside from the centerpiece 21km event, there will be a 10km race for running aﬁcionados who
are yet to be familiar with the challenging terrain of Corregidor but yearn to discover and
experience its distinctive scenic course. All ﬁnishers in this race category will be awarded with a
10km Achiever Medal. This course is exceptionally fast
and stunningly beautiful.
