About Cebu Marathon

Cebu City is like an entrée-sized Manila; it’s energetic, exciting and fast-paced, or loud, dirty and ruthless, depending on your perspective. On the surface, it does its worst to attract tourists, with its honking jeepneys spluttering exhaust fumes, shopping-mall culture and lack of world-class sights. Yet give it a chance and you'll find plenty to do here. 

Cebu has a rich history that's well documented in several good little museums. The upscale Lahug district comes alive by night with bars and clubs to suite every taste. And just over the bridge is Mactan Island, one of the few places in the world where you can experience world-class diving within minutes of a major international airport. With that being said, The Cebu Marathon is the place to be.
