Race Number

Your official race number (bib) must be fully visible at all times and worn in front. The timing device is attached to the back of the number, so avoid folding, wrinkling, or covering it with a jacket, belt, water bottle, or any other item. Failure to display the number properly may result in your finish time and split times not being recorded.

Remember to fill in the emergency contact number on the back of the race number with details of a family member in Manila.

If you lose your race number, you’ll need to register again. Runners without the official race number won’t be allowed to participate.

Please note that race numbers are non-transferable. Don’t give, sell, or let anyone else use your race number. Anyone caught not wearing their assigned race number or engaging in unauthorized transfers will be disqualified and suspended from future events.


Your official finishing time is documented by the timing system, calculated from the moment you cross the starting line to when you reach the finish line. Top finishers will be determined based on gun time, which is the duration from the starting horn until the runner crosses the finish line.

Start & Finish Points

The official marathon map will be announced soon and will clearly indicate the designated start and finish locations. Participants are advised to review the map to familiarize themselves with the route.

Detailed information regarding the assembly area and start times for each race category will be provided. Participants are required to arrive at the designated assembly area on time, as indicated in the event schedule. Climbing over barricades or entering improperly may result in disqualification. To ensure participant safety, once a corral is closed, late-arriving participants must report to the next available corral.

Participants who do not commence the race within 15 minutes of their respective flag-off time will be disqualified and may not be allowed to start. Disqualified participants will not receive any race results.

In the interest of safety, and to allow reopening of streets as scheduled, race courses will be closed after the following designated cut-off times.

Please refer to the event communication for specific details on assembly areas and start times for your registered category.
