Clark Sunset Marathon
About the race
The Clark Sunset Marathon is a race conceptualized and organized by RUNRIO, Inc. It is inspired by the fact that in tropical countries like the Philippines, the weather is mostly hot and humid, hence running at night, when it’s cooler, may well be the better option to give runners a cooler and more exciting race experience.
The team also aims to establish this event as the premier international marathon foot race in the country by securing route standard accreditation from AIMS/IAAF, the international governing body for distance races in the world.
For the inaugural year, runners have four race categories to choose from namely, 5K ,10K ,21K ,42K. In addition, since Clark has an international airport, we are targeting foreign runners to join the race that will culminate with the Clark Sunset Marathon Music Festival, an after party celebration, at the finish line.

Verbal protests will not be entertained.
All participants must provide accurate information, including age, gender, and emergency contact information, when filling out the event application form. It is strongly recommended that the closest family member who is in Manila should be written as the emergency contact person.
