With the achievement, Sadia and Cadosale captured a prize of P10,000 in cash, a trophy, as well as a coveted slot to the National Finals on December 7, for a chance to compete for the MILO Marathon King and Queen title. MILO will send this year’s King and Queen to Japan on an all-expense paid trip to the 2015 Tokyo Marathon.

Runners shrugged off the heat and used the sunny forecast to their advantage. In a tightly competed race, the 21k male category saw 21-year-old Maclin Sadia outlasted his fiercest rivals, posting a time of 01:14:16, narrowly edging Joel Alcorin (01:14:22) and Rowell Hulleza (01:17:16) who finished second and third place, respectively.*

Sadia, hailing from Cadiz City of Negros Occidental, has his humble beginnings as a runner during his elementary school days. Financial problems forced him to stop going to school in 2005 and work as a delivery boy of soft drinks to sari-sari stores to support his ten other siblings. Rekindling his love affair with running, he started training under the tutelage of his father Alino Sadia, a former runner who used to compete in marathons in Bacolod.

Participating in his third year at the MILO Marathon, he cherishes the opportunity to compete with the best athletes.
“I came in with humble expectations of finishing with a good time, yet I am grateful to have not only won but achieve a career-best finish with this performance.  I was focused in my training and today’s success is a culmination of all those sacrifices. I look forward to celebrating this win and sharing my earnings with my family.” ~Maclin Sadia~

In the distaff side, Cadosale displayed a relentless drive from the get go, finishing with an impressive time of 01:33:43, relegating Mereeis Ramierez (01:38:59) to second place, and Iresh Belleza (01:42:42) to third place.*

Cadosale, a 4th year college student of Central Philippine University, got acquainted to training for running in grade 6. In time, she continued to hone her technique and develop her endurance, eventually earning an athletic scholarship in Track and Field at the university level.

Her running resume says that she is no stranger to success. With podium finishes in fun runs and school competitions under the State and Colleges Universities Athletics Association (SCUAA), she also prides herself with accolades in past MILO Marathons, winning Gold in Bacolod (2012) and Silver in Iloilo (2013). Though training was scarce due to harsh weather conditions leading to the race, her accumulated experience gave her enough to come out on top.
“It was rainy leading up to this event but during my free time, I did some long runs and managed to work on my speed.  My family was very supportive throughout the process and I owe this win to them.” ~Stephani Cadosale~

Each year, thousands of Filipinos join the National MILO Marathon and conquer the races together.
”We at MILO are thrilled to see a diverse set of participants ranging from kids, teens to adults.  The National MILO Marathon has seen champions emerge from every corner of the country and it is gratifying to be a part of a program that makes aspiring athletes reach for their dreams.” ~Andrew Neri, MILO Sports Marketing Manager~

Elite runners Eric Panique and Adjene Rose Delos Santos conquered the 21K centrepiece events at the Iloilo leg of the 38th National MILO Marathon on Sunday, the biggest race in Iloilo, to date.

Each received a prize of Php 10,000 and a trophy for their respective victories. Along with the other 42K qualifiers, Panique and Delos Santos secured a slot for the National Finals slated on December 7 in Manila. To heighten the competition and to add a bigger incentive for the runners, MILO will sponsor this year’s MILO Marathon King and Queen to the 2015 Tokyo Marathon next February.


Last year’s MILO Marathon Manila leg winner Eric Panique grabbed another comfortable victory against his rivals as he used the better weather conditions to his advantage and clocked in at 01:14:06, beating second placer Roger Denolo (01:19:15) and third placer Roger Molinos (01:19:19).


The 28-year-old member of the National Team, hailing from Negros Occidental, trains everyday with the team under coach Mario Castro’s guidance. Perseverance is the key to winning, according to Panique.
“Because of Typhoon Mario’s wrath in the past few days, I was worried it would still rain and the roads will be very wet. Thankfully the weather got better, although the high humidity levels made the race more challenging. But I did not let it stop me.  There were times when I had difficulty in breathing and experienced some chest pains, but I pushed myself since I knew I can still handle it. I’m proud that my perseverance paid off.” ~Eric Panique~

Meanwhile, Adjene Rose Delos Santos went neck-and-neck in a thrilling bout with fellow contender Jioda Gagnao, beating the latter by only one second. Delos Santos settled the score towards the finish line and posted a time of 01:48:46, relegating Gagnao to second place (01:48:47), while Lorena Blanco finished in third place (01:53:16).

For Delos Santos, a 28-year-old native of the Quezon province, awareness and distribution were the main factors that helped her earn her victory.
“During the race, I kept track of how many kilometers I’ve already covered, and the pace that I was running at. I tried to manage my distribution and pacing throughout the entire route as best as I can.  We were lucky that it wasn’t rainy anymore and it wasn’t too hot either. The main challenge for me was when I felt some pains on my sides, and experienced dehydration due to the lack of sleep. I need to work on this for the National Finals.” ~Adjene Rose Delos Santos~
MILO Sports Marketing Manager Andrew Neri was full of praise for the runners who joined the Iloilo leg.
“We at MILO are very delighted with the impressive turnout. The threatening winds and rains of Typhoon Mario and the Habagat in the past week could did not stop our racers from enjoying their passion for running. However, the welfare and safety of our runners is of utmost importance. We closely monitored the weather conditions and we would not have put our runners’ safety on the line had it been too dangerous for the race to push through.  Our contingency plans are well set in place, and we are very grateful for the all-out support of the Iloilo city government, especially Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, who also joined the race. Thankfully, we were blessed with better weather and our runners were able to enjoy the race. Today’s turnout proves that the Filipino spirit is truly strong and resilient. Nothing can stop us from celebrating our passions and achieving our dreams.” ~ Andrew Neri - MILO Sports Marketing Manager~

“I really love running. I’m grateful that I am able to use my winnings for my college tuition and expenses.  I’m very happy that I won. Even if it was very rainy, which proved to be a big challenge, the cool weather was nice and I had a lot of fun in the race.” ~Joseph Macaladlad~

The Jaro sisters are no strangers to the running scene. Running definitely runs in their family, with their names consistently appearing at the top of running results in the different race categories of the MILO Marathon, amongst various races.
“My sisters and I are all runners. We grew up into a poor family, and we had to go to school which was about 11 kilometers away from our house. We would run to school to avoid being late, and that was the start of our foray into running.  Our family is our inspiration, and our eldest sister Cynthia is our biggest influence. She was the one who first started running competitively, and we all followed in her footsteps. Through running, we are able to help our family enjoy a better life.” ~Criselyn Jaro~

Each year, thousands of families join the National MILO Marathon and conquer the races together.
”We at MILO are delighted to see children, whether kids or adults, run with their parents and their siblings at the MILO Marathon. It is heartwarming to see families become really engaged in running, such as the Jaro sisters. The National MILO Marathon is a communal gathering where numerous Filipino families channel their athletic spirits and enjoy family bonding through running together. We encourage more families to join our national family affair that is truly fun for all ages.” ~Andrew Neri, MILO Sports Marketing Manager~
