    This is great BullRunner! Your blog is awesome!

  3. Miguel Says:

    I am going to be staying in Manila for a couple of weeks mid-Jan 09. Does anyone know of a running group I could do a couple of runs with at that time? Or even have links/names of any running clubs in the Manila (Makati) area?
    Any time, location, pace should be ok.
    Thanks guys

  4. jj Says:

    hi tbr,

    ano nangyari sa february phil. marathon (pasig)? move ulit? just notice that it is on the “march” sched. akala ko february na. do you have any updates on that? news naman sa pasig marathon. (dami ka naman runner connections hehehe, unlike kami na tagaprobinsya, asa lang sa balita).

    always a fan of your blog,

    Hey jj, i was told that March was a compromise between parties: some wanted it later for more prep time, but others didn’t want it too late as it would be too hot. 🙂

  5. Jimmy Arr.... Says:

    ang bilis naman dami n race pati sa sm mall of asia ngorganise n rin…
    googluck to all runners kagaya ko

  6. sonny Says:

    hi there the bull
    cgurado b n m2loy ang clark marathon?un date lng tentative?

  7. blimpi Says:

    hi TheBullRunner 🙂

    i hope it’s ok if i post the schedule in my site. i’m a big fan of yours. thanks so much, you inspire me a lot. I hope to see you in one of the runs (hopefully running instead of walking like what i did in my first try ;p)

    May God continue to bless you and your loved ones. Happy New Year!

  8. dirk Says:

    hi tbr,

    happy new year! pretty good line-up of races this year but i noticed that there’s no adidas, mizuno, nb and nike sponsored races yet. i’ve seen you in some races last year but i was “shy” to approach you but hopefully the next time i’ll see you, i want to meet and have a picture with you 🙂

    Hi Dirk,

    No scheds yet for the races you mentioned. Don’t worry, I’m sure they’ll announce them early enough for all of us to train properly 🙂 See you in a future race!

  9. Manuel Corriente Says:


    I plan to go to the Manila on December. Could you please give more details about the Clark Marathon, Clark field, Pampanga, on the 5th?



    Hi Manuel, from what I’ve heard, plans are still underway. Even the date, sorry to say, is tentative. I’ll post info in my blog once I hear of final details. 🙂

  10. Manuel Corriente Says:

    Hi Bullrunner,

    Thanks a lot for your reply.
    It would be fantastic if they move the Clark Marathon to 12.12 or 20.12, so tourists like me (I live in London and we are going to visit my wife’s father in Manila for Christmas) would have an opportunity to run a marathon in the Philippines.
    Also this list of races 2009 is great, please keep it updated!


    That’s still possible since the date is tentative and the organizers may read this heehee 🙂 If it doesn’t happen, maybe you could move your trip to make it to the marathon…it’ll be worth it!!!

  11. ellen_smart Says:

    Hi BR, we, in Smart Communications Inc., are planning to run the PSE Bull Run. There are 60+ of us running. Hope to see you there. Also, maybe we can invite you as a speaker perhaps on a seminar? thanks. 🙂

    Hi Ellen, too bad I didn’t make it. Speaker? Let me know the details 🙂

  12. Nolan Says:

    The Run Manila 09: Power Run on February 15 looks like an interesting race by looking at venues where it will take place. If it’ll start from one place and finish to the other, then that will really take out the usual bore of passing thru the same route at least twice. However this will also entail problems in parking and baggage’s deposit. I hope we can get a clarification from the Organizer/s on the actual route of this race.
    Thanks. More power to you TBR!

  13. Cai Says:

    Hi BullRunner for a newbie like me your site is really useful. I never miss a day without checking your blog site. Thank you very much for this 🙂

  14. Cai Says:

    Hi Bull Runner

    FYI – I contacted MX Events to enquire entry for 12 April 2009 Green Earth Run – they say it is planned to be rescheduled for another date – disppointing for me as it is my only weekend in Manila in my next visit to the Philippines – you may wish to contact them and update your excellent race diary page

    Good luck with your running

    Hi Bull Runner,


    Its my first time I’ve visited your site. Two youth runners and enthusiasts told me about your site. Really I find it cool. Im not a runner actually, but i do jog once in a while specially during Saturdays and Sundays along the 2.5k stretch of Marikina River and ends up for a few more rounds in Marikina Sports Complex oval.

    I work as a community dev’t specialist doing advocacy on Population, Health and Environment (Integrated Population Dev’t). Currently, Im helping a youth group in Marikina, the Youth Outreach Program Against Drug Abuse – YOPADA-Marikina Chapter in organizing an Advocacy Run dubbed as: Takbo Laban sa Droga, Takbo para sa Kalusugan. This is a fund raising campaign for their anti-drug and substance abuse among the youth. Btw, helping YOPADA is one of my crusade in my Home City, Marikina. (this is not my salaried job or livelihood)

    The Event will be on April 19, 2009, 6:00 A.M. The RUN will start and ends at Marikina Sports Park (Complex). You can visit us at: and email us at and

    I’m beginning to love running not only for jogging and exercise but as a sports as im getting deeply involve in making this RUN a success.

    Please help us spread our Advocacy Run schedule to our growing and broadening running tribe!


    Its Me, Jimmy 🙂

  23. Richard Hunt Says:

    Hi there, hope everyone enjoyed this mornings condora run as much as I did.

    Does anyone know of any 42k marathons happening in Manila or close to Manila, early part of June?

  24. Pats Says:

    Hi TBR! Would you know if the Men’s Health Miracle Run 2009 has a race map already? 😀

  25. Heather Says:

    what happened to the April 12th 15k??
