MILO® officially launches the 44th National MILO® Marathon with the opening of its online registration site. The longest-running marathon in the country, the National MILO® Marathon is set to make its comeback on March 26, 2023 (Sunday) at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds.
Because of the past few years of limited and restricted physical activity, MILO® launched its ACTIVE PILIPINAS campaign to energize and inspire Filipino families to live an active lifestyle through sports programs and events. Through the return of the National MILO® Marathon, the brand brings together Filipinos of all ages and walks of life to run towards a common goal of energizing the nation to go from couch to court. The slow and cautious return of the event takes safety as the primary concern, hence focusing on selected runs in key cities this year.
“‘Excited’ doesn’t even begin to cover how it feels to be able to bring back this much-loved running event to our fellow Filipinos, especially since there will be more runners at the starting line. When the race was announced, we saw and felt the shared excitement of the country, so we look forward to once again energizing the nation on March 26. We are excited to see everyone again at the starting line, where our Champions Coach Rio de la Cruz and First Olympic Marathon Champion Mary Joy Tabal had their early marathon experiences before becoming the champions they are today,” said MILO® Sports Head Carlo Sampan.
Casual and professional runners are invited to kick off their Champion journeys at the National MILO® Marathon starting line. For the first time, registration for the run will be made available online via www.bit.ly/milomarathonisback. With race categories from 3K to 42K, runners are sure to find a category fit for their preferences and active goals.
Coach Rio shares “Finally it’s back! RunRio is honored to partner again with MILO® Philippines in bringing back the MILO Marathon. We share the same vision of seeing more Filipino families being active and joining sporting events such as the MILO Marathon. While we are not staging the usual qualifying and nationals format, we are hopeful to see more active Filipinos enjoying their time at the Manila leg and other upcoming races.”
Online registration is open from February 3-15, and with an Early Bird discount of P100 off for runners who register from February 3-10 with the voucher code MILOACTIVEPILIPINAS.
