In a statement released earlier today, the National Finals of the 38th MILO Marathon will be postponed “in view of the imminent arrival of Typhoon Ruby and to ensure the safety and welfare of all concerned.”
Typhoon Ruby (international code name: Hagupit) is the strongest storm to hit the Philippines since Yolanda last year.
I feel for the runners. I am not running any Milo Marathon event but I can imagine the frustration of the runners who had trained hard to get to tomorrow’s run. Of course safety should take precedence over beating a personal record.
