When Bukidnon's first ever full marathon dubbed as Dinaganay sa Malaybalay 2012 was held last June 24, 2012, I was one of the volunteer photographers doing the documentation part of the big event. I took up the task of taking photos of the runners in Barangay Managok which is part of the 42K route. It was a cold and foggy morning in Managok and I am sure the runners enjoyed the scenic route of rice fields on the sides and Mount Capistrano looming at a distance.
Located about 20 kilometers from Malaybalay City proper, Managok is known for Mount Capistrano, a famous hiking and climbing destination in Bukidnon. It is also one of the rice-producing areas in Malaybalay. It was a good thing that it became part of the 42K route as it gave runners coming from outside Malaybalay a chance to see its quaint beauty.
Here are some of the photos taken in Barangay Managok during the event:
