2019 August – September Philippines Athletics
The Weekly Relays, held on September 1, mark the end of the qualifying period for Philippine Athletes to the 2019 SEA Games. After that, it’s basically pens and papers down; pass your work to the front of the class for many coaches.
Some Events of interest will be the 400 Men’s and 1500 Men’s, which we will do our utmost to live stream.
Firstly 1500 is of note, with stronger non-national athletes vying for SEA Games Spots.
- Mervin Guarte (Airforce) 3.47/3.57
- Sony Wagdos (Airforce) 3.55
- Aries Africa (National Team) 3.58
- Edwin Giron Jr. (National Team) 3.59/4.04
- Mariano Masano (National Team) 4.00/4.01
- Erwin Mancao (National University) 4.01
- Edgar Carado (Adamson) 4.02
- Alfrence Braza (Iloilo) 4.01
Quite an interesting race with the 5x SEA Games Silver medalist Mervin Guarte lined up. He is also the National Record Holder, National Junior record holder, and current national champion. Joined by his training partner Sony Wagdos a former PRISAA Champion. Aries Africa national silver medalist, and Univ of the Phil Duo of Giron Jr. UAAP Champion and Masano the National Junior Champion. Mancao is the 2018 ASEAN School Games Silver medalist, and Carado is the weekly relay youth champion. Braza, the National HS Champion, withdrew from the race to focus on school work.
Mens 400m (on PBs)
- Joyme Sequita 47.26
- Edgardo Alejan Jr. 46.90

- Russell Galleon 48ish
- Jericho Ejercito 50.03
- Reymond Alferos 48ish
- Mico Del Prado 47.98
- Medina? 48ish
- Jomar Udtohan 46.95
Again another interesting race will be a case of #watchandlearn—quite an interesting field of athletes aiming for the coveted 4x400m relay spots. National and UAAP 400m Champion Joyme Sequita, Jomar Udtohan, has the #3 time in Southeast Asia this year. Former national champion Ryan Bigyan, NCAA 200m Record Holder Russell Galleon. Popular Actor Jericho Ejercito. NCAA Champion Reymond Alferos. 4×400 SEA Games gold medalist Mico Del Prado, National 400 Hurdles champion Francis Medina. Also, of interesting note, there are 9 lanes at Clark. So if any more athletes turn up, it could be an A and B Race situation.

July 6 PATAFA Weekly Relays Low Turnout / No Personal Bests / Full Results
Apart from William Morrison (who we will have a separate section on once we get a copy of his passport sent to [email protected]).
This report comes late as we were waiting on the outcome of the Vietnam Open before proceeding with any such write-up. However, now that there has been a continuation of lackluster results for several meets in a row, it’s time to bring this to attention as we are now drawing 4 months until SEA Games.
Low Turnout at the PATAFA Weekly Relays in Lingayen
The first leg of the PATAFA Weekly Relays in Lingayen was a disturbingly low turnout with 60 or fewer athletes. Mainly the ones staying in the training camp in Lingayen from the National Team showing up. Only one small team from Manila bothered to show up. A small makeshift band of boys from the University of Asia and the Pacific.
In fact, hardly any local athletes from Lingayen showed up to the meet, held July 6 at the Narcisco Ramos Stadium in Lingayen, Pangasinan.
Gone are the days when the weekly relays attracted a total of 2300 athletes registered in 2015.
For 3 months, the local-based athletes had been training there.

- Free Accommodation
- Exclusive use of the oval no joggers getting in the way like at Ultra
- Full Time to train, no distractions of study or work. Hence enough time between workouts to rest and recover.
- International trips ever for athletes that are not SEA Games Medalists
- Allowances from the PSC for National athletes
Not a Single Personal Best Set
Very disappointing results by the PHI-athletes on 6th July; maybe 10.65 at 100 m by Lopena could be valued as the best result (in addition to the SP) – as per Asian Athletics correspondent.
