The event is also proudly sponsored by Masiv Sports. We now highlight some of the key athletes and their past achievements who are joining our event.
Among the Mens Division. Former UAAP 10,000M Champion Darwin Lim (Dasmarinas) has the fastest time on the entry list. The 32-year old who resides in Dasmarinas holds the best time of 15:25 and was trained at one time by the late Rosito Andaya. A former teammate of the late great ‘Master Endurance’ Rafael Poliquit a 2x Milo Marathon Champion.
Challenging him will be the Prince of Cebu Joey Lee (Spectrum Runners) who has a 15:33 PB. Better known as a 10k and 21k Runner. Joey Lee is also the coach of the Spectrum Runners in Cebu.
As well as athletes coming down distances. There are also athletes coming up distances. Elbren Neri (Pinoyathletics) the UAAP 800 and 1500 Record Holder. Will try his luck in the Mens 5000m along with two athletes he coaches. Neri finished 7th at the 2017 SEA Games in the 1500m.

Welfred Esporma (ARM Team Heya) completes the field of the 6 athletes that have broken 16 minutes for 5k in this event. Florendo Lapiz (Spectrum Runners) was #7 but he has had to withdraw due to feeling unwell.
On the women’s side no Big Names. But still a wide-open field. 18-year olds Emmalyn Tayplin (Valencia Runners Club) and Cherry Andrin of LapuLapu City. Lead the list of qualifiers with the two submitting times below 19 minutes. Another talented upcoming youngster 14-year-old Asia Paraase (Spectrum Runners) in Cebu sits in the #3 spot.
Looking in great shape to challenge the three teenagers at 38 is former Milo Marathon 21K Champion Nheann Barcena (Barcena’s running warriors).
SEA Games Bronze medalist in Mixed Relay Duathlon Pawie Fornea (Dasmarinas) , Donita Tacuyan (Pinoyathletics), and Veteran road runner Lany Cardona (Team Titus) also add to the lineup.
Perhaps however the Dark Horse in this event is Lheslie De Lima of Rinconada Team in Bicol another teenager, the Palarong Pambansa champion in 2019 in the 1500 and 3000m secondary girls. Who is stepping up and running 5000m for the first time ever?
