Subic is not the easiest of terrains. The Subic International Marathon has a rolling terrain and you’ll definitely feel the elevation when you run. What makes it stand out is the rich forest and sea view of Subic that refreshes you when you run. It’s back this weekend starting at Remy Field, Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
Subic International Marathon
I always have a good time at Subic International Marathon and it’s not because it’s in the easiest terrain. It has a rolling terrain that your legs would definitely feel. It’s a lot more refreshing running at Subic with rich forested view, fresher air and also a stretch appreciating the sea. The field is also a bit competitive with fit police and army personnel pushing your pace in the field. It’s also the longest running full marathon race in the country.
Subic International Marathon (SIM) is now on its 11th year. The race is set on November 12 to 13, 2016 starting in Remy Field, Subic Bay Freeport Zone. SIM’s premium full marathon and half marathon categories (42.195km and 21km respectively) will fire off on the late afternoon of Saturday, giving the runners a unique feel and experience while tackling the scenic and challenging course of Subic Bay Freeport Zone at night.
November 13 is the setting of the 10km, 7km, 5km and 3km no-frills fun run, capped in the beautiful, chill and relaxed atmosphere of a Sunday morning in Subic Bay.
