Finally, after three years of the Pandemic, the Cebu City Marathon has returned. It seems to have quickly usurped the Milo Marathon’s place this year as the Premier road running event.
More than 8,000 runners participated in the Cebu Marathon this morning, January 8. The event features a full marathon (42 km), 21km, 10km, and 5km distances. The starting/finish line is located in SM Seaside City. Runners (except 5km runners) pass through Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway.

2019 SEA Games Marathon Queen Christine Hallasgo took a comfortable win in the 2023 Cebu Marathon, clocking 1h22.23. With uphill sections and in rather wet, difficult conditions. Hallasgo was outside the 1h20.34 Best mark she clocked at Valencia City last year. She was comfortably ahead of Raven Alcoseba and 40-year-old Nhea Ann Barcena, who both clocked 1h28.
Richard Salano (not Solano) won the Men’s 21K in 1:09. The national athlete is coached by Eduardo Buenavista. Salano clocked 1h09.41 in 2012 and so started this year fairly consistent in his campaign for SEA Games Men’s Marathon. He finished ahead of a duo of Spectrum Runners Prince Joey Lee and Marc Mahinay, who made waves recently in the Weekly Relay Finals. Mahinay did have some comfort knowing he had improved his PB by 3 minutes from 1h15.12 to 1h12.08.
The Marathon mens was won by Kenyan Erick Chipsiror in 2h32.11 by Arlan Arbois in 2h33.56. Former 2x Milo Marathon Champion and former national athlete Jesson Agravante wound up 5th.
And WHAT ABOUT!!! unheralded Jason Padayao of Spectrum Runners while everyone else struggled and suffered much slower times than usual in the wet and not flat course conditions of the CCLEX Bridge. Padayao won the 5000m by nearly a whole minute in a PB of 15:49, which is not bad for an athlete who is not famous. Padayao hails from Dumaguete.
An example is Emmalyn Taypin of Spectrum Runners, the UAAP Champion in 10,000m, who won the Womens in 20:39 (PB of 19:31.23).

Bonus Question from comments can we naturalize the Kenyan Runner?
I don’t think so. The Kenyan runner won’t get top 3 in SEA Games against Thai, Vietnam, Indonesia etc…
Correction Keash Vasquez was 3:35.48, not 3:45.48, as reported.

Cebu City Marathon 2020 (Jan 12)
A COUPLE of GOALS. Elite runners Ruffa Sorongon and Azlan Pagay, who have been in a relationship for six years, topped the men’s and women’s divisions of the Cebu City Marathon.

In Cebu City, domestic partners Azlan Pagay and Ruffa Sorongon, a power duo in the running community, did this rare feat as they bagged the men’s and women’s titles in the 42-kilometre category of the 2020 Cebu City Marathon on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2020, at the Cebu Business Park.
“It’s a blessing from God that he gave us this talent. Another blessing was this championship for both of us,” Pagay told SunStar in Cebuano after the race.
“Our relationship started because our runner friends teased us,” Pagay said in jest.
“We’ve been in the relationship for seven years now and to have the same sport and interest has helped us to really understand each other,” said Sorongon.
The next stop for the two athletes is the Milo Marathon National Finals on Jan. 19 in Tarlac City.
Sorongon aims to improve her fourth-place finish, while Pagay looks to get a good time on his first national finals in three years.
NB. 2017 SEA Games Champion Mary Joy Tabal did not join the Marathon as she is resting for the Milo Marathon in Tarlac on January 19.
