My Analysis on the 34th Milo Registration


Registration for the 34th National Milo Marathon is now open. And the biggest news is the increase in registration fees. This is definitely a sad news, giving us the impression that Milo is joining the bandwagon of registration fee inflation (150% increase).

However, when I get the chance to further look into what's new with this year's edition, I paused for a while, and realized the following:


  • Bigger cash prizes (33 to 300% increase)
  • Different qualifying time for different age/gender groups
  • Longer cut-off time
  • Earlier Gun Start
  • P5 goes to Run-For-A-Cause
I welcome these developments as I see more of our athletes will be challenged and motivated. On a personal note, I know that as I age, I will realize my dream of making it to the finals because of the age/gender qualifying times.

Hope to see you in 34th National Milo Marathon!

Whatever their reason is, it's still too stiff. I "HOPE" I could see you there.
