Incoming: Siargao IT UP!

Posted by on 3. October 2013

Siargao

Siargao has always been associated with Surfing and why shouldn’t they.  They’ve been hosting the International Surfing Cup for the past 18 years and has drawn thousands of wave chasers over the years.  It’s rated by CNN Travel as Number 8 in the World’s top 50 Surf Spots (Read about it here).  Above the Cloud 9 Waves, Siargao is being transformed into a world class destination with world class standards and services.

Siargao is more than just one of the best spots to surf in the world.  It’s also a venue of international and national surfing and adventure events.  It can also  overwhelm you with nature at its raw beauty with its intimate island hopping, mangrove and lagoon tours.  It can also be a marine sanctuary  where you can interact with sea creatures and jellyfish with a diving adventure.  Siargao can also give you a better appreciation of their culture with a countryside and heritage tour of Siargao.  It can also cater to the sporty and adventurous type with kayaking  or a bike tour of the island.   Surigao can also be a perfect place for those love the outdoors or those who love to hanging out in the beach awaiting that splendid view of sunrise and sunset.

Siargao IT UP!

You and me can be a part of something historic that would be a constant in the activities of Siargao.  Enter SIARGAO IT UP HALF MARATHON!   Explore Siargao by foot in a run event that would leave you fascinated by the scenes and lifestyle in Siargao.  It’s happening on November 16, 2013, Saturday at Numancia Central Elementary School Grounds in Del Carmen, Siargao and offering a fast 400 meter dash, a five kilometer run and a half marathon distance.   The race starts mid in the afternoon and finish with the splendid view of sunset and after that, it’s party time after that.  Aside from having a visual treat with the beauty of Siargao while you run, it’s also a run for a cause and it’s for the benefit of the Del Carmen Mangroves.
