RECONQUER The ROCK: The 4th Corregidor International Half Marathon

cihm

During the 1st CIHM, I was fortunate enough to be a part of the organizing team. Having ran the Conquer Corregidor 10miler the previous year, I wasn’t too keen on running the 21k since I already know how grueling it was to run on the Island. The first edition had a check point on the 10k mark, and each runner should cross it in no more than 1hr30mins for them to be able to continue and finish the race. I was then tasked to be the “Terminator” pacer wherein those who wouldn’t want to be “Terminated” must run ahead of me until the check point.

Now moving on to the second year, I was relegated to the back ground doing the dirty stuff with Race Director, Coach Edward Kho. We mapped the new race route since heavy rains made a part of the original route impassable because of a rock slide.

The third year was different, I was already an official participant. Having been slowed down by injury, I only decided to run in the inaugural side event which is the 10k Challenge. With little training, I had a hard time negotiating the almost unending uphills and downhills that really made the CIHM one of the toughest, if not the toughest race in the Country.

This year, I’m planning to return to the Island. With still a good 2 months left to train, i’m quite positive i’ll be able to do the Half Marathon distance this time. Runners will once again “own” the Island for the weekend. With the growing anticipation for this event every year, this race should really be included in every runner’s race calendar.

It's time to RECONQUER The Rock!
