CIHM Corregidor International Half Marathon Dec 1, 2012

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

finish line.


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.
