Last year’s Subic International Marathon was a memorable event. Well, for most of my friends who ran the full marathon, it was a nightmare. A pitch dark course and the absence of water welcomed them while running through SCTex. Indeed a memorable event.

Fast forward almost a year later, I chanced upon one of the executives of Subic International Marathon during a meeting. I took the chance to interview Lisa Manuncia, the Admin and Finance Head of SIM, on what awaits runners on the next SIM.

Here are some of the details I was able to squeeze out from here.

  • The Subic International Marathon will not be done this year. They decided to move it to January 9, 2011.
  • SCTex will not be part of the full marathon route. Details on the race route is still sketchy but it will definitely pass through Remy Fields to Ocean Adventure. Anvaya Cove was even mentioned. Interesting…
  • Race organizer was changed to Ex-Tribe. This was a GREAT move!
  • Distances: 3k Family run, 5k, 10k, 21k and 42k.
  • Chris Sports will be one of their major partners.
  • Of course, SMART will still be part of the event.
  • Registration sites will be Chris Sports (confirmed) and ROX (not confirmed).
  • Participants may opt to have their kits mailed to their homes for a fee.

I’m still waiting for the info on the race fees. I hope it’ll be affordable so that many will be able to join.

(Update on race fees: 10k P500; 21k P750 and 42k P850)

So, are you game on for the 3rd SIM?

  1. Next year’s SIM will clash head on with Cebu City Marathon… without a good background and a tough competition they should consider moving the date or make an all out effort to convince runners why they should pick SIM. CCM already has all the info out while there’s hardly any for SIM.

    • I agree. I was surprised that I didn’t find any information on the net on this event except for the date.

  2. cge try ko…. hehe ;p

    uh-oh… Tama si Dhenz, move na lang sana yun date. Para mas may time sila to prepare din. Almost everyone I know who runs will be in Cebu on that date.

      hey tay rod! ;p will suggest it to them 🙂

  4. Remy Field to Ocean Adventure, plus Anvaya? Wow, that’s a killer of a route. The hills are punishing.

      Yep! Agree! So no SIM for me. LOL! Maybe the 21k.
