KAWASAN FALLS Marathon

Cebuanos, Sugbuanons and tanan Bisdaks! Another marathon event is bared down the line come July 24, 2011 - the Kawasan Falls Marathon.  (The other race is the Y101 Armscor Run, though it's not a full marathon).  The Kawasan Falls Marathon is a full marathon race presented by the ThreeSixty Pharmacy.  


I wish i could join this marathon because according to the organizers the Kawasan Falls Marathon route will be on an 85% coastal and scenic route along a paved road covering three municipalities of the Province of Cebu namely the Municipalities of Badian, Alegria and Malabuyoc.  Wow!! A chance to see these beautiful places in Cebu and at the same time doing something beneficial to one's health.  Hmmm too bad i'm only good for 3k or 2k, but maybe, just maybe i could hike or jog for 21k or 42 k (LOL).  Yeah, since it's a full marathon the categories for the Kawasan Falls Marathon are 21K for the half marathon and 42K for the full marathon.  But the big catch for the Kawasan Falls Marathon really is that one will be able to run amidst the vast green beauty of nature along tree lined roads, passing through rivers and seas and if you can finish the race it will be great to jump off the Kawasan Falls or dip in its cool refreshing waters.  Ahh pure bliss.  But before that you'll have to run 1.5k uphill then the next 8k will be rolling but after that, you'll be running on flat terrain.  The Turning point is the Malabuyoc Church in which runners will have to go around the church.  The last leg of the Kawasan Falls Marathon will be a 1k trail run along the Kawasan river leading up to the finish line.

The Kawasan Falls Marathon will be on July 24, 2011, A Sunday at 4:00 am to 9:00 am.  There is a cut off time of seven (7) hours.  Oh i couldn't just walk or hike for 7 hours noh? Maybe by the time i will crossed the finish line everyone would have gone home already hehehe.  I should just joined the Biggest Loser first.

But good news for all who could get to the finish line of the Kawasan Falls Marathon as there will be 500 slots Medals for the finishers of both the 21k and the 42k category.
