Registered - Singapore Marathon 2009
Sometime last month, JINOE GAVAN of TAKBO.PH in one of our conversations mentioned that he and his new bride QUEENIE have their eyes set and planning to join the STANDARD CHARTERED SINGAPORE MARATHON. He gave the me the information that online registration will open on midnight of July 16, 2009. The said marathon is one of the more prestigious marathons in Asia and is to be held on DECEMBER 6, 2009. Linkage to their website and for those interested can be accessed at;
Given the crazy idea and the proximity of Singapore, I weighed matters and finally decided to enter myself in the said event. On July 17, 2009 I have completed my registration and now am runner 07473-PHI-MVM-OLP with my confirmed entry form below;
Cost of registration is Singapore Dollar $65.00 or approximately P2,146.00 On the airfare cost there is a number of options to avail of should one be on a budget as there are flights from Clark to Singapore via Tiger Airways, Clark to KL then Singapore via Air Asia, Manila to Singapore by Jet Star, Manila to Singapore via Cebu Pacific, and the regulars PAL and Singapore Air. Another option is getting package deals from travel agents which consist of airfare and hotel accommodation.
It is a great Christmas present for oneself and a great way to end the running year.
