THE 1st Talisay City Marathon will not only feature the 42-kilometer and half-marathon distances but will also have the 5K to cater to shorter distance runners when the event blasts off on Aug.17 in Talisay City.
According to Menchu Costanilla Dagode, they are expecting around 1,000 runners on race date. And with coordination with the barangays, they will likely hit the target number.
“We have 22 barangays in Talisay City and they are cooperating with us for this event. Every barangay registered at least 10 runners or running enthusiasts. They can choose which categories they will join,” said Dagode of the Talisay City Administrator’s office.
As of yesterday, some 400 runners have enlisted with majority of those coming from Barangay Linaw with more than 20 entries.
The students in different schools of Talisay City are also encouraged to join the first marathon in Talisay.
The students can register in the 5K category at P100 inclusive of a race bib.
