2013 is a milestone year for the island of Corregidor as far as races are concerned: it will be host to back-to-back “twin” races that is the Corregidor Marathon (CM) and the venerable Corregidor International Half Marathon (CIHM). Here are the details:
The organizers of CIHM for the first time are organizing a full marathon in the island of Corregidor. But so as not to foreshadow the already established half marathon, the full and half marathons coexists, sharing the same weekend but not the same day. Saturday (December 07, 2013) belongs to the full marathon while Sunday (December 08, 2013) belongs to the half marathon, each race having their own side events.
The Corregidor Marathon includes a full marathon as well as a 5K and 3K events. The Corregidor International Half Marathon includes a half marathon (21K) and a 10K event. And since the island can’t comfortably accommodate a lot of people at the same time, the slots for the races are limited:
|Category||No. of Slots||Registration Fee*||Gun Start|
* Registration fee includes:
- Roundtrip ferry to and from Corregidor
- Full lunch buffet on race day

Aside from being limited, the 42K and 21K races now implement qualifying times:
|60 & above||06:00:00||07:00:00|
Qualifying times should be set in any race within the last 12 months prior to the race. There are also no cutoff times for all events but make sure to consider the departure of your ferry service from the island with your intended finish time.
Registration is ongoing, exclusively online via Corregidor Marathon Facebook page. Alternatively, you may also visit Corregidor International Half-Marathon Facebook page.
