Corregidor’s “Twins:” The International Half and Full Marathons

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:

Corregidor Marathon
December 07, 2013

Corregidor International Half Marathon
December 08, 2013

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:
