First among the line up of International Marathons, Quezon City Internation Marathon will start accepting Registrations on September 11, 2009. Organized by the City Government, the event is estimating a huge number of entries @ 10,000. Loaded with prizes totalling PhP 3M, the event will fire off on October 18, 2009 as a highlight for the 70th Founding Anniversary of Quezon City.
Event categories include a 42.195-km full marathon and 5k, 10k and 21k runs. A finisher’s medal await those who will complete the 21K and the full 42.195 kms course.
Runners may register at the following venues:
any of the listed stores of Timex IN:
SM branches at North EDSA,
Mall of Asia,
Makati and in Cebu.
Nike Park, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City,
and Second Wind, Teachers Village, Diliman Quezon City.
Registration fees are pegged at P300 for the 5-K and 10-K runs, and P500 and P650 for the 21-K and the full 42-K marathon, respectively. Race kit includes singlet, race chip and champion chip instruction flyer to be given during registration.
The QCIM will start and end at the Quezon Memorial Circle with the full marathon route covering the UP Diliman campus, Commonwealth and Don Mariano Avenues, Batasan Road, La Mesa Eco-Park and Ayala Techno-Park.
By the way, Late Registration for the Quezon City International Marathon shall be done in the Quezon City Hall only, and at a higher fee. Let’s make up our minds early and register before the last day of Registration – that is October 4, 2009. A Finisher’s medal shall be given to all those who will complete the 21K and 42K course.
As one of the many race pacers for this event, I guess we’d have to recon the route for an early feel of how it is. This is scheduled on October 4, event made possible thru invitation by Rene aka Jazzrunner.
As of this writing, the QCIM is still in need of Pacers. Click here if you are interested.
See you at the race!
