The Condura Skyway Marathon 2017, the much anticipated “Premier Marathon Event in the Philippines and Asia Pacific” was recently postponed by the CSM Running Ambassador Mr. Raul Patrick Concepcion and CSM Founder Mr. Ton Concepcion. After 7 marathons held on the same route in 8 years, the people behind this event decided to postpone this year. The founder has yet to disclose any reason why it was deferred this year.
Here is the statement from Condura Skyway Marathon
Dear Fellow runners,
In 2008, we started a revolution by launching a World Class international standard race in the Philippines called the Condura run. With the soul of being a “run by runners for runners” and the vision of being “the Premier Marathon Event in the Philippines and Asia Pacific”, the Condura Skyway Marathon became the most loved, the most anticipated and the biggest marathon event in the Philippines.
But what made this run extra special is that you, our runners ran to champion environmental causes in Tubbataha, the Dolphins of Bohol, the Whale sharks of Donsol and the mangroves of Zamboanga de Sibugay. You also championed social causes through the Hero Foundation where we sent hundreds of children of our fallen soldiers to school.
After 8 years and 7 marathons, with over 100 thousand participants from all over the country and from the 4 corners of the World, we asked ourselves 1 question – How can we make the marathon much better in order to stay true to our vision? And the answer is to postpone the 2017 Marathon in order to give us more time to plan and execute a bigger and better marathon in the future.
We would like to thank our partners, Skyway, Asics, Asia Brewery, Run Rio and Hero Foundation for their support through the years. This race would not be possible without you. We would also like to thank our runners for their loyalty and support and for more importantly running to make our country a better place one step at a time!
Looking forward to seeing you all in the future Condura Marathons.
Mr. Raul Patrick Concepcion
Condura Skyway Marathon Running Ambassador
