Guam International Marathon on 7 April 2013

Friday, 8 February 2013  |  Race Announcements

Hunting for an international marathon abroad that isn’t too far from home? How about the Guam International Marathon?

I ran in Guam last October 2011 when I participated in the Guam Ko’Ko’ Road Race. Running in Guam was a  fantastic experience for me with their wide, open roads and a fantastic view of the sea and the sky; it was very reminiscent of our very own Subic.

If you’re interested, here’s more info on Guam International Marathon:

Safety Buddy for Condura Skyway Marathon 2013

Saturday, 2 February 2013  |  Race Announcements

With every marathon, there’s always a risk of a medical emergency. We should never ever forget that. For Condura Skyway Marathon, it’s nice to know they’ve prepared for it. Here are friendly safety reminder from Ton Concepcion of Condura to ensure your safety during this weekend’s race. See you there!

Dear Runners,

Introducing – “Safety Buddy”. Your safety is our number 1 concern.

For 2013, we will be implementing the biggest and most comprehensive emergency quick response plan yet. But with even close to 1,000 race officials this Sunday, we cannot watch out for every one of the14,000 runners who will be running over different portions of the 32km long Skyway.

That is why we call on you to volunteer as a “Safety Buddy”.

A “Safety Buddy” is a runner who helps out a fellow runner in times of need. We all know that runners never run alone during a race and therefore the runner beside would be the best person to provide immediate assistance. You can become a “Safety Buddy” by following these guidelines in case you or a fellow runner needs medical assistance:

1. Contact the nearest visible race official and seek assistance. (They can be identified by the race official t-shirt and race ID’s)

2. If there is no visible race official nearby then call the Skyway Emergency numbers: (Applicable to those running with cellphones.)

Please save these numbers on your cellphones. (We encourage you to bring your celphones)

Hotline: 02-776-7777
Globe: 0917-539-8762
Smart: 0999-886-0893

Please provide the following information:

a. Your location – Go to the nearest LAMP POST on the center island and read the LAMP POST NUMBER that is marked in yellow.

This will inform medical officials where you are. Lamp post on the Skyway are spaced an average of 130 feet apart.

b. Give the Race Bib number of the runner that needs assistance

c. Give your name and phone number.

We also would want to remind our runners of the following IMPORTANT SAFETY TIPS.

1. Be sure you are sufficiently trained and are in tip-top shape for the race distance that you are joining.

2. Fill up the ICE at the back of your race bib (ICE = In case of emergency)

3. Have a nutrition and hydration plan and be sure to stick to it.

4. Race within your limits and if you need medical assistance please approach any race official. Pace yourself!

5. Bring a back up hydration belt and extra gel just in case. Remember to never try anything new of race day!

Quick over view of Medical and hydration plan.

1. There are 25 hydration stations spaced an average of 2km apart. Summit water will be served at all stations. 100 plus shall be served only in all hydration stations on the Northbound lane (13 stations of 100 Plus).

2. For 42k runners, there will be 3 Banana stations located approximately at the 22km, 29.4km, 36.4km mark

3. There will be portalets at every hydration station.

4. Lifeline, the premier provider of Emergency Quick Response service will be our medical partner. They will have 13 ambulances with 25 medical tents spaced 2km apart on average with 200 medical personal spread 250 meters apart in between the tents.

Remember, even if there are safety buddies, race officials and medical personnel to assist, SAFETY FIRST BEGINS WITH YOU! Run safe and have fun!

Sincerely yours,

Ton Concepcion – Founder and Chief Event Officer
