Subic International Marathon 101

1of 3 international marathons being staged in the country this last quarter of the year and the only one outside Metro Manila is the Subic International Marathon (SIM).  One unique feature of this race is that the full marathon would be held on a Saturday afternoon, on October 24, 2009 at 4PM.  A sunset marathon? It starts at SCTEX Floridablanca Toll Plaza and ends at Remy Field, Subic Bay.  Side events are staged the following Sunday morning.

Sealed SIM race kit as I received it

0, zip, nada—no timing chips for this race though.  The race packet was virtually empty as it contained only the race bib and safety pins—no race route, no flyers, nothing!  At least the kit comes with a nice singlet though.

1of the most prestigious marathons in the Philippines as claimed by SIM, this is one local marathon one shouldn’t miss!  Despite the “manual” system of timing the uniqueness of running on a Saturday afternoon away from the hustles and bustles of the city plus a chance to run on the SCTEX itself makes this race its distinct from a “typical” marathon.  Subic here we come!

101: This is not a vanity number, I got it by mere coincidence (must be a sign of something good)
