Last 11-12 January 2014, the team behind up-and-coming travel website tripmoba.com tied up their laces and geared up for the 1st Corregidor Marathon and 4th International Half Marathon, the annual race set at the heart of the historic Corregidor Island.
tripmoba.com, the first Philippine-focused online travel website, co-sponsored the event and four runners, and gathered an impressive number of ticket registrations via their website, which also offers a wide range of flights, hotels and experience packages that can be booked online instantly. The dynamic website also allows travellers and tourists to provide their own reviews and recommendations for public viewing.
“We are honored to have been part of the 1st Corregidor Marathon and 4th International Half Marathon,” says tripmoba.com President Zaki Delgado. “We at tripmoba.com are keen on making great travel stories, and the experience we had at Corregidor was very memorable. The team got to meet different people, join the run and of course, enjoy being in such a historic place like Corregidor.”
At the close of the marathon on Sunday, tripmoba.com treated the winners of the 21K run to another surprise – Erinio Raquin of the male category and Luisa Raterta of the female category were given a special helicopter ride back to Manila – no doubt, an exciting and rewarding end to the weekend.
“We are already looking forward to next year’s marathon,” Mr. Delgado adds. “It’s a wonderful event, and we at tripmoba.com are always looking for ways to make great stories happen.”
