Mendoza rules Subic run

Ryan Mendoza and Jul Laiza Camposano ruled the 42.125K marathon over a field of 4,000 runners in the 2012 Subic International Marathon at the Remy Field of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority last weekend.

Mendoza finished in three hours, seven minutes, four seconds, while Camposano clocked 3:58:10, to bag the top prize of P20,000 each in the event organized by eXtribe, Inc. in partnership with the SBMA, PNP and AFP.

Jofill Sabado and Monica Torres topped the 21K event with clockings of 1:20.44 and 1:32:52, respectively. They received P10,000 each. The 10K winners were Lohn Leerams Chicano (34:19) and Merlyn Lumagbas (46:03) who received P5,000 each.

Gen. Sammy Tucay, SIM founder and chairman, joined the runners of the 10K event while Father Melo Diola of the DILAAB Foundation joined the runners of the 21K event.

The 2012 SIM was organized to support the community transformation programs of Christian Officers Reform the Police Service (CORPS) and the DILAAB Movement.

The participation of both local and international runners from the US, Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore raised P120,000 for the programs that will benefit street children in Olongapo and Metro Manila. Father Diola received the check for CORPS and DILAAB Movement. (Philippine Star)
