1st Isla ng Catanduanes Ultra Marathon 2016

A sea of dedicated and brave runners will sweep the roads of Catanduanes as over a hundred participants are expected to participate in the 1st Isla ng Catanduanes Ultra Marathon 2016 to be held on October 21 and 22, 2016 in the capital of the Island, Virac. The event will cater to enthusiasts from all walks of life, young and old, professionals and beginners, foreigners and locals. The Ultra Marathon will prove to be a celebration of what runners of every shape, size or age can achieve.

The event will also be boasting the picturesque destinations of Catanduanes. Each participant will get to see and experience for themselves the charm of the province. As your organizer together with my friend Lao Ogerio, we both natives of the province, we have expressed the desire to promote the island not only as a destination for runners to get together and be fit but also as a place where they can get just take a breath and appreciate the stunning vistas. Another advocacy of the event is to help the Philippine Red Cross and to support the projects and programs of the province.

We’ve been in the running community for years.  We both have equally invested time and effort to sustain a healthy lifestyle, something we wants would-be runners to be inspired to do. Now, it’s our time and time to pay back to our island that had been our home for years. Join us on our adventure and help us achieve our goals towards the island.
