The first Pryce Gas International Marathon was held last December 2, 2012 in Cagayan de Oro City. It has 3 distance categories: 42K, 21K and 5K. Instead of going for my third full marathon finish this year, I decided to run along with my wife Malou for her first 21K. It was also my first back-to-back 21K weekends having ran the half-mary in the 36th Milo Marathon CDO exactly a week before the Pryce Gas International Marathon.
The race start and finish area was in Pryce Gardens, a memorial garden about 8 kilometers from Grand City Hotel in Divisoria where we stayed the night before the race. Good thing the organizer provided shuttle vans with pick up point in Rodelsa Circle. Going up to Pryce Gardens, we already met the 42K runners on the road. 42K gun start was fired at 4 AM while 21K would kick off an hour later.
