Ruto wins National 1000m Junior Title.

A close way 4-way battle saw Erica Marie Ruto (Team IsKolar Atletiks / Laguna) crowned as the National Junior Girls Champion over 1000m. Ruto, a 58.5 PB in 400, was a Palaro Finalist in 2019 in the secondary girls 100,200. She stopped the clock at 3:15.17.

She held off Edna Magtubo of Iloilo Athletics a Palaro 1500m and 3000m Finalist in 3:18.14, Ruto’s teammate Agamanos was 3rd in 3:20.03 and Fantasia 1000m Champion and Palaro 200/400 Bronze medalist Divina Mahusay of CANTAFA was 4th in 3:20.35. It was a wonderful competition with the top 4 all under the 3:23 winning time of Mahusay at the Pinoyathletics Fantasia meet in March.

Masters Record for Rebese

Guidelines to 1000m from Letsrun.com

McMillan Calculator

It’s pretty difficult to determine because it likely rests a lot on your 1500m ability.

A good estimate might be:

2:00 –> 2:35
2:05 –> 2:42
2:10 –> 2:49
2:15 –> 2:58

That being said, a 4:00 1500m runner might only run 2:00 and could bust out a 2:32 – 2:33 1000m. Conversely, a 2:00 guy who can only run 4:20 for 1500m might have difficulty breaking 2:40.

My own indoor 1k (because I never ran an outdoor one) was 27% slower than my indoor 800 (1:53 –> 2:24), which would put a 2:00 equal to about 2:32.5. That said, I was always better at 1500 than the 800.

Martir lowers time to 2:41.64

John Mark Martir did it again, establishing another new national junior record with a time of 2:41.64.

Martir had previously time 2:43.20 (unofficial run).

The 16-year-old from Bago City finished ahead of his brother John Eric Martir, who is one year older. John Eric clocked in at 2:45.02.

The duo represented H12 Running team coached by Singapore-based Reginald Montano. 

The Virtual event organized by Pinoyathletics runs from July 17 to July 31. With some entries withdrawing due to new covid restrictions.

Pinoyathletics National Virtual 1k Challenge (attempt at the National Record)

July 23, 2021

Myl Campoamor clocked a time of 4:09.42 (Garmin) to win the Women’s 35-39 title at the Pinoyathletics National 1000m Challenge. However, this mark did not count towards a Philippine Masters Record as 1000m is considered a track event, and it needs to be run on a standard oval. Myl completed her run at  Kibawe oval Bukidnon. So far, only 5:28 has been registered in the girl’s division from Princess Lanipa, another female participant.

16-year-old Martir sets National Junior Record in 1000M Outdoor

16-year-old John Mark Martir of Bago City set his intentions early when he established a new National Junior Record in the 1000m Outdoor run at the Pinoyathletics National 1000m Challenge; there was no previously established junior record in this event.

Martir, who celebrates his birthday a month ago, stopped the clock at 2:43.20 (video time) on the dirt oval at Bago City. Finishing ahead of his training partner, the talented 18-year-old MJ Maldeguia, who timed 2:44.17.

Maldeguia finished 3rd against senior athletes in the National 3000m Championships in 9:03.0.

The duo is coached online by Singapore-based coach RM Montano also a proud son of Bago City. Both boys ran solo.

Martir will, on Monday again, attempt to break his new National Junior Record on Monday, July 26. 30 athletes are entered in the Virtual meet of the Boys 1000m with video submissions between July 17 and 31. A total of 80 athletes registered, but to comply with Covid restrictions, some have had no choice but to pull out in line with LGU quarantines.
