7 Days to The Great Lapu Lapu Run

Sunday, 11 April 2010  |  Bullish Insights

Aaaah Cebu!  We had a blast running in Cebu during the Cebu Marathon last January.  And, by the end of this week, we get to return for The Great Lapu Lapu Run.  Yahoo!


Race organizer, triathlete Nonoy Jopson, told me that the route will take us around Mactan landmarks by the beach and near the resort hotels around the area.  Top finishers will win trips to Hong Kong Standard Chartered Marathon 2011 (not that there’s any chance of me winning!)  They expect 5,000 runners and they’ll be providing timing chips from Finishline.

Hubby and I are registered for the half marathon.  Hubby will use this as a training run for TBR Dream Marathon and I’ll probably run with him and enjoy the scenery.

Aside from the race, we’re also looking forward to our stay at Imperial Palace Waterpark.  I hadn’t heard about this hotel until Nonoy told me to google it.  One glance at the website and my kids looked like they had won the lottery. Only “ooohs” and “aaaahs” were rolling out of their tongues.  Imperial Palace has got 5 different themed pools plus 3 water slides within the hotel.  It’s going to be a hectic weekend with swims and runs, but hey I’m not complaining!

Registration for The Great Lapu Lapu Run is ongoing and will close on Thursday, April 15, 2010.  For more info, click HERE.
