So last Sunday was this year’s Condura Skyway Marathon. Of course, we all know that CSM is one of the major marathon event that most if not all Pinoy runners have been anticipating every year. According to the organizers, there were around 15,000 runners who registered for CSM this year. The 42K runners alone totalled to around 4K-5K. So, if this is an indication of the event’s success, we could definitely say that the CSM 2016 was indeed very successful.
As with the previous, I joined the 42K category last Sunday. Almost everything were the same as last year. Same gun start for the 42K runners, same starting line and same route. This year though, the release of runners was a bit disorganized. Whereas last year, runners in the different wave were released at intervals, this time around, all runners were released at the same time. The wave differentiation were no longer followed.
Other than that, I have nothing but praises for the CSM organizer for another great staging of the Skyway Marathon. Stick around for the official race results coming out in the coming days. As for the race photos, pinoyfitness.com, takbo.ph and the running photographers have uploaded the photos. Check out their FB pages to find out if you were hit by their photographers’ lenses.
Also, this blogger/runner would like to extend my condolences to the family of the two fellow runners who collapsed during the event. It was sad to find find out about these event.
And of course, congratulations to all the finishers, especially my fellow 42K runners!
See you in CSM 2017!
