Takbo.ph Runfest 2014

The Takbo.ph Runfest is now on its 7 th year.  It started in the year 2008, the same year that the Condura Skyway Marathon was born and also held its first race at BGC.  With the founding tandem of Jinoe and Que Gavan, Takbo.ph has raised the bar for running enthusiasts in the Philippines.  I believe they played a major role in promoting the running boom in the Philippines taking it to where it is today.

The weather was extremely warm; the race hasn't even started and I was already sweating profusely.  Seeing that there was a huge crowd for the 21 km distance as expected, my friend Paolo C. and I opted to stay at the back of the pack as we sometimes do in other races. The route took us around BGC, Kalayaan , South Super Highway,   Bayani Road with the last kilometer stretch passing through the so-called  "killer hill" at C5 road.  All in all, it was a good race.  Jinoe and Que of Takbo.ph have pretty much perfected this event to a T. 
Do I hear a Marathon next year? : - )

Thank you again for the free race bib and a wonderful race.
