The 38th edition of the Milo Marathon will finally push through this December 13, 2014 at the SM MOA grounds.

It can be recalled that the longest running marathon event in the Philippines was supposed to fire off last December 7, but was forced to be cancelled due to the imminent danger that typhoon Ruby posed to the participants.

Considered to be the country’s national championships at the marathon and half marathon events, the Milo Marathon continues to attract the marquee names in the long distance community of the country. Manila-based Kenyans have spurred up the competition level in both women and men’s division as they have joined the Milo circuit about three years ago.

In the women’s side, long retired great Arsenia Sagaray won the Milo title 5 times. Followed by 10k national record holder Cristabel Martes with 4 titles.
