Kakaibang trip! Manila to host Asia’s first ever Rock n’ Roll marathon
The city government of Manila has partnered with an events company to stage the first ever Rock n’ Roll marathon in Asia.
Mayor Isko Moreno said the marathon will show Manila’s brighter side and charm.
“Manila is full of heritage sites. It is one of the oldest cities of the world,” he said.
Sunrise Events Inc. president Ma. Christina Galura said the 20-year long signature marathon would feature the changes of the city under the Domagoso administration.
“We wanted to bring the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon to the City of Manila so that we can showcase its cleanliness, kasabay yung pagpromote ng mga heritage buildings,” Galura said, noting that the music set to be played will have a “Filipino touch.”
While the marathon’s date hasn’t been announced yet, organizers said its route will feature heritage sites of Manila.
The marathon will be open to everyone: including members of the LGBTQ community, persons with disabilities, and senior citizens.
