Pope Francis is the first pontiff to visit the Philippines since 1995, when Pope John Paul II. visited the archipelago in January 1995. He presided over the World Youth Day 1995. His mass on the closing day was attended by over 4 Million people, the biggest crowed the pontiff ever faced during his reign.

Surely the airport is not the only affected place in Manila. The whole Metro region will be at a standstill. For everybody who does not want to participate in the celebrations during the visit of Pope Francis in the Philippines it is certainly the best to avoid Metro Manila during the stay of the Holy Father.

A Word of Advice

The Dumaguete Field office is quite small and very busy throughout the year. You can speed up the process by being prepared. Have all your papers ready, bring the required printouts, copies and/or pictures. Please don’t waste the time of the staff and all others waiting to report just because “you didn’t know that…“).

Don’t rely on “fixer” or other expats who heard from a friend to do it different. Plenty of expats created a huge chaos in 2014 with trying to implement their own rules how to proceed, spreading false rumors and talking nonsense all over the internet, in McDonalds and all other expat meeting points

The website of the Bureau of Immigration is very informative and all required info can be found there.

Keep in mind that it is only one or two days out of 365 and a few Peso, which enables you to stay legally as a guest in the Philippines. Think about that and proceed with a smile

Dumaguete Adventure Marathon

Dumaguete Adventure Marathon 2014

The Dumaguete Adventure Marathon 2014 (DAM) takes place on November 16, 2014. Runners from all over the Philippines and guests from all over the world will come to Dumaguete to join local runner, jogger and walker for this adventurous run through the city of gentle people and its surroundings.

Dumaguete Adventure Marathon

42km long – 1.2 km high – The real DAM

The route of the 42.195 meters of the full distance is more challenging than ever. This year’s Dumaguete Adventure Marathon brings you all the way up to the Filipino-Japanese-American Shrine, roughly 1,200 meters above sea level, so make sure you have some up-hill training to master this challenge of ascends around 40%. The course will also use some unpaved roads, loos gravel and mountain washouts. Good footwear is therefore absolute mandatory.

21km Half Marathon

The Half Marathon also has its challenges. Getting from Robinsons via Batinguel towards the mountain and back is an exciting experience and still requires good training.

Also towards Batinguel goes the 10.5 km Quarter Marathon. From Robinsons via Calindagan to the Rizal Boulevard the runners will take a sharp left turn and go straight up all the way to Upper Batinguel before turning around and run downhill back to Robinsons. On their way back they take a different route and pass the BIR towards Bagacay down to South Elementary School and the Highway before they finish the 10.5 km Quarter Marathon.

5 km Finisher’s Run and 3 km Kiddie run

For Kids and Teenagers are the Finisher’s and Kiddie run. The 5km run starts at the Mall, goes along the Boulevard into Silliman Avenue. The turning point is just past Portal West building.
