A Teaser: The 3rd Corregidor International Half-Marathon

corregidor-half-marathon-2012-poster

This race destination is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular and best-preserved historical monument of World War II and it is easy to be transported back in time as you follow the heroic battle of the Filipino and American forces against the Japanese Imperial Army in one of the most heroic battles in the history of war.

There’s a good reason why more than a thousand runners travel to take part in this yearly out-of-town half-marathon: the SCENERY! The views enjoyed during this 21 kilometer race is up there with the best, following a spectacular run through WWII ruins, tunnels, killer hills and you would want to reward yourself after tackling that lung-busting last kilometer uphill that the organizers had set-up!

Fortunately, the ocean views along the edges of mountains and the scenery surrounding the vast monuments are as breathtaking as the hills itself! 

Don’t miss this chance! Here are some pictures of my past CIHM experiences:
