Unlike in years past, the region’s running calendar looks full all the way up to December 2012. Blocking a date way ahead of the race works well for both runner and organizer. The heads up gives the runner enough time to plan, train and strategize for his target race. The organizer gets priority in time when it comes to getting the required permits from the local government units and the traffic body concerned.
Here’s a rundown of scheduled road races and triathlons (with its corresponding categories and registration fees) from March to December 2012:

Azkals place 3rd in AFC
Against all odds and despite controversies hounding some of its players, the Philippine Azkals capped its historic run with a 3rd place finish in the AFC Challenge Cup held in Kathmandu, Nepal.
The Philippine men’s football team beat Palestine 4-3 with two goals courtesy of Phil Younghusband and the other two by the Guirado brothers Angel and Juani.
The 2012 AFC Challenge Cup started with 20 teams. The Philippines is the only team that had to go through pre-qualifiers and reached the semi-finals.
The Azkals victory will hopefully inspire more young players to take up the sport, learn football or enroll in football clinics to hone new talent.
The Subangdaku Football Club will hold its Summer Clinic 2012 from April 9 to 30 from 7 to 9 in the morning at the USP-F Football Field. The clinic fee is P2,800 which includes 10 sessions, T-shirt and certificate. For details, you may contact Doris at 09223974194 or Coach Elying 09232047445.
