Philippine International Marathon (PIM) Marathon Route

The Philippine International Marathon (PIM), the last international marathon for the year to be staged on November 08, 2009 for the improvement of the Pasig River, has released the route for the full marathon albeit in text form:

I don’t know about you but I don’t understand text routes so with the aid of Google Earth I plotted the route to the best of my understanding (accuracy not guaranteed):

    Thank you. I will run this marathon and I was actually not familiar with some of the mentioned streets on the text route.

    You’re welcome everyone! I plotted this so that I may run it in the future as I am not doing PIM (at least for 42K). This is what happens when you can’t run because of colds and is stuck at home 😀

    I will be in town for the weekend of the marathon. However I am having trouble finding information on registration, start times, start location, etc. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

      Good day! If you’re registering for the PIM you can do so via Gold’s Gym. I’ll post an update soon about more registration partners the next few days 🙂

    Thanks for this : ) Big help in visualizing the route since I’m not familiar with the Manila portion of streets near Quirino. This will be my first — if I finish.

    Thanks for posting this map. The official route by text is not very helpful. Your map rendering is better. It gives the runner good perspective of the race and possible conditions to encounter in the different sectors. Again thank you and more power to you. See you on the road one day.
