CEJOGUA SPORTS CORPORATION trademark owners and creators of ISPORT BOTAK makers of sportsmen and athletes outfit for Filipinos and made by Filipinos, have invited a number of bloggers to make a road show presentation which was held at Red Box Greenbelt-3 for their forthcoming “PAA-TIBAYAN” Takbo-42K and Takbo-100 Kilometers.
The so called “running fever” is here with us. With the great success of the “Condura Run 09” 21-K, the running community has been in an "anticipating mode" for the next road race to train.
Now comes “PAA-TIBAYAN” – Takbo 42-K scheduled for May 10,2009. The very first full distance marathon road race for the year 2009. The route shall start at NBC Tent at Fort Bonifacio Global City Taguig then will lead to Lawton Avenue, Bayani Road, a double loop at C5, Kalayaan Flyover, Buendia, Makati Avenue, Metropolitan Avenue, Buendia, Kalayaan flyover and end at NBC Tent. The event shall as well have 21K, 10K, and 5K categories to address the varied skills and capabilities of each individual runner. The event offers very generous prizes not only to male and female overall top winners, but, also to top three placers for each age bracket both male and female. Check-out the Cash Awards and Prizes and Route below;

What can I say? With the economy crisis that we are into, running in the country has not had it any better than now. The running boom is here with us, hopefully it is not just a fad of the moment. Let us all work hand in hand for glory of the sport and pray to have more generous sponsors and that professional organizers will provide their best for the runners to further improve and spread the "good news" of the sport.
Now let’s download a training plan for the full marathon and start our training!
