Cebu City, 01 December 2017 – MILO Philippines and the city of Cebu are ready to welcome all finalists and participants at the National Finals of the 41st National MILO Marathon on December 3, Sunday. For the first time, the Queen City of the South hosts the much-awaited finale. With the MILO Marathon’s strong following in the Visayas region, Cebu was chosen as the finals location to make the running event more accessible to the runners from the south, as well as to reach more Filipinos and encourage them to achieve an active and healthy lifestyle. Runners and spectators alike can also look forward to the popular tourist spots and rich culture that Cebu has to offer.

Sports in the Philippines has come a long way from it being limited to just the typical ones such as basketball, volleyball, and badminton. Now, Filipinos are getting into a wider range of sports and other physical activities such as Frisbee, hiking, Zumba, and yoga. Tapping into this growing market is French sporting goods giant Decathlon, which recently opened its very first store in the Philippines at Festival Mall in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
