Last Thursday (Jan. 17) at 12 noon, I attended the final Press-Conference for the Mizuno-Shell Sinulog Marathon at the Olympic Ballroom of Baseline Restaurant. Presided by arguably the wittiest and funniest man in Cebu, Bobby Inoferio, it was all running-talk at the SCOOP Forum. With me were Jess Taborada (President, Cebu Executive Runners Club), Raffy Uytiepo (Race Director), Joe Deresas (Technical Director), Joey Santos (PATAFA representative), Dr. Renald Ramiro, and several of Cebu’s top runners (including Liezl Geteruelas, Merlita Arias, Madeline Carter and top male runner Mendel Lopez). It’s all “Ready, Set… and Go!” for this Saturday.
Top Cebu bets: Mendel Lopez, Liezl Geteruelas, Merlita Arias
