*** PRESS RELEASE ***

Manila, Philippines, 13 July 2017 – The National MILO Marathon, the country’s most accessible national race, today announced the official opening of its 41st season. The first of the 16 races is set to kick-off in Urdaneta City, Pangasinan on July 16. With new features and race locations added for the fresh cycle ahead, MILO expects to see around 200,000 participants from across the country compete in 3km, 5km, 10km, 21km, and 42km distance categories.

The National MILO Marathon has long been energizing and inspiring champions for over 40 years and, as such, has been attracting runners of all kinds, from children, rookies, veterans, friends, and families from all over the country and the world. Centered on the theme “Magsama-sama, Tumakbo, Matuto”, this season is driven by values such as discipline, resilience, and determination, which runners can take with them in their journey in life.

“In the National MILO Marathon, we see people from all walks of life who come to run, to learn, and to live. This year, we shine the spotlight on the runners who are learning along the way and taking hese lessons beyond the finish line to shape their lives,” said Robbie De Vera, MILO Philippines Sports Executive.

New roads, new features

Three new areas, Urdaneta, Laoag and Roxas cities, are added in this year’s 16-leg tourney. The additional locations will provide runners with new and exciting challenges, showcasing the great running experience the National MILO Marathon is known for.

“We at MILO make it a mission to engage more Filipinos in adapting active and healthy lifestyles, and that is what the National MILO Marathon is all about. By adding more key cities, we will be able to reach more champions and hopefully inspire them to achieve new heights, be it in sports or in life. We look forward to seeing our champions!” added De Vera.

Following the success of the Iloilo finale last year, the National MILO Marathon will be staging its final race in Cebu City on December 3rd. This is the second time for Visayas to host the much-anticipated culminating event, and the third time to be held outside of Metro Manila. “We are excited to be fielding the National Finals in Cebu, where the sporting landscape is more invigorating than ever,” said Ricky Ballesteros, Organizer of the National MILO Marathon National Finals. “Our team is on its way to prepare for the biggest race of the season, so expect for this year’s finale to be grander and bolder.”

To encourage runners to celebrate their victories, MILO will debut the new Age Group Category in the National Finals. The Age Group Category is an added feature in the 21K and 42K distance races, that lets participants track and compare their performance with other runners in similar age groups. The new feature intends to motivate runners in reaching their personal goals and attract more contenders to the higher categories.

More than a staunch advocate of Philippine sports and Filipino athletes, the National MILO Marathon is also a platform that empowers children nationwide. For the past 7 years, the National MILO Marathon’s Help Give Shoes advocacy, in partnership with Department of Education, has inspired 70,000 aspiring athletes to fulfill their dreams by donating brand new pairs of running shoes. This year, the Help Give Shoes advocacy will be donating 5,000 pairs to underprivileged school children.

The series will start in Urdaneta on July 16, which expects around 10,000 runners. Following the pilot race, the National MILO Marathon will continue in Laoag (July 23), Metro Manila (July 30), Angeles (August 6), Tarlac (August 13), Naga (August 27), Lucena (September 03),  Lipa (September 10), Tagbilaran (September 24), Roxas (October 1), Iloilo (October 8), General Santos (October 15),  Davao (October 22), Butuan (November 12), and Cagayan De Oro (November 19). The National Finals in Cebu City will be on December 3.

The 41st National MILO Marathon is endorsed by the Philippine Sports Commission, Philippine Olympic Committee, Department of Education, the Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association, and the International Association of Athletics Federations – Association of International Marathons and Distance Races. The National MILO Marathon is in partnership with Salonpas, and supported by Garmin, Hisense, Manila Bulletin, Maynilad and Walter Mart Supermarket.

VENUE : CAMP AGUINALDO, QUEZON CITY
ASSEMBLY : 3AM

*** PRESS RELEASE ***

It won’t be a dog-day-afternoon, when dog enthusiasts and owners alike bask in the splendor of summer at Camp Aguinaldo in the second edition of Run for Aspins on May 6, 2017.

While the race continues to raise awareness on responsible pethood and pet adoption from Philippine Animal Rescue Team (PART), a significant part of the event will focus on dogs’ “other” purpose in life. We know that aside from being great pets and companions, dogs can be trained to become formidable soldiers, especially in the area of security and surveillance, peace and order and even extreme military operations.
Some K9 Units of the AFP have started to adopt aspins (mixed or unknown breed) because they have been found to be easy to train and maintain, compared to some purebred canines. Therefore “aspins” is no longer just your average asong kalye, but can become purposeful military working dogs.

The AFP-GHQ (in Camp Aguinaldo), in cooperation with counterpart K9 Units within the armed forces, will be holding a K9 Mini-Olympics and Exhibition again within this year’s race. The K9 display of talent will show the general public how K9s are trained to be part of the country’s line of defense. In addition, this will also demonstrate solidarity within the ranks, towards the direction and mandate of an institutionalized ARMED FORCES.

As in the 1st edition, registrants can either run solo on 10K or 5M distances, or choose a 2KM or 600M distance if they want to participate with their dogs.

registration fees

To make the race even more exciting, the race shirt has been re-designed as a hoodie on top of the other race packet inclusions when you sign up for the race.

2k and 600m racekits b10K and 5K racekits

Each registration contributes as much as 20% to the rescue projects of the PART and to the building of additional K9 facilities in different AFP Units. If we can be more generous, our beneficiary-partners will also be setting up donation boxes in the Race Expo. For inquiries, they will all be on hand on race day to lend support, understanding and information.
