Silangan Surigao Marathon 2013: Run for the Surigao River

The first ever half marathon to be organized in Surigao City. Co-presented by Silangan Mindanao Mining Company, the marathon will be held on May 5, 2013. Distance categories includes 21k, 10k, 5k, and 3k.

Monday, April 8, 2013

Objective, Background and Rationale

To organize the first ever half-marathon (21km) in Surigao City and raise public awareness on the present status of Surigao River.

Background and Rationale:
The Surigao Runners Club is a group of young surigaonon professionals whose love for running has bonded them together. In August 2012, an organizational meeting was conducted at the Provincial Sports Complex to organize a running club in Surigao City. The set of officers, lead by its first president Atty. Ingemar Macarine, laid the foundation and set its eyes in promoting running as a lifestyle.

In December 1, 2012, The Surigaonon Runners Club successfully held its first fun run dubbed “Red Tie Run 2012” in observance with the United Nations World Aids Day. Over 500 runners join the early morning run, while hundreds who registered unfortunately were not able to run due to inclement weather during that day.

In accordance with its aim to promote a healthy lifestyle and environmental preservation, The SRC has once again decided to organize a fun run, this time, a bigger and better fun run that would include a 21km category in addition to the usual 10k, 5k and 3k categories, the first in Surigao City. The run is scheduled suppose to be on April 21, 2013 in observance of the World Earth Day on April 22, 2013. But rescheduled on May 05, 2013 to prepare better the event.
