This is it, folks!

The MILO Marathon has always been one of the most anticipated local running events because of its history, the big cash prizes, and the challenge posed by having strict qualifying times. The 2011 schedule has just been released so mark your calendars, everyone!

This year marks its 35th edition, featuring 17 elimination races and one final race on December 11. It kicks off on July 3 in Laoag while the Manila Elimination Leg is on July 31. That should give people plenty of time to prepare. I’m sure every serious runner out there is eager to join and qualify for the Finals.

Here’s the complete schedule for the Milo Marathon 2011:

July 3 – Laoag City
July 10 – Dagupan City
July 17 – Olongapo City
July 24 – Tarlac
July 31 – Manila Eliminations
Aug 21 – Batangas City
Aug 28 – Puerto Princessa
Sept 4 – Naga City
Sept 11 – San Pablo City
Sept 18 – Iloilo City
Sept 25 – Bacolod City
Oct 2 – Cebu City
Oct 9 – Tagbilaran
Oct 16 – Cagayan de Oro
Oct 23 – Butuan City
Oct 30 – General Santos
Nov 6 – Davao City
Dec 11 – Manila Finals


I’m not sure what the qualifying times will be this year, but last year they were:

For 21K Provincial Eliminations

For 42K Manila Eliminations


Pretty tough. I myself need 4:20 to qualify for the  finals, and for someone who has yet to run her first marathon, that’s quite a daunting task. But hey, I’m up for the challenge. Bring it on! And good luck to all of us!

  2. […] decent for a 42K debut, and around the neighborhood of my target finish time for the upcoming Milo Marathon. Lori said she followed Hal Higdon’s marathon training program, so I took a quick look at it […]

    I can’t believe how “slow” the posted qualifying times are, especially the 21K provincials. They strike me as a lot less competetive than during my time, ( circa early-mid 80’s). Way back then, when the eliminations were run at 20K ( instead of 21) one had to run a 1:13 to ensure a qualifying slot in the Manila elims ( top 50). I remember running a 1:14: 52 in 1983 and not qualifying. In 1984, I again clocked a 1:14 ( but seconds faster) and made no. 46 barely making it to the finals ( which were then held on the 3rd Sunday of November). Either way, a 1:14 20K translates to a sub 1:19 21K. What happened? It seems like the Filipino long distance talent pool has gone through some sort of regression? Or recession maybe? I hope not.

      Maybe Milo simply wants more people to join the finals leg to make it bigger. Eduardo Buenavista holds the course record of 2:18:53 and he is still active. Filipina women swept the top 3 in this year’s Manila eliminations, beating all the Kenyans. I hardly think that’s a sign of regression.
