July 2011 Races Spotlight

Here’s a little explanation of how a race ends up on this list. It’s a subjective list based on how much the highest category costs to run. My upper limit for a 10K race is that the price should be less than P600. (Ideally it should be P500 below, but it’s hard to find races at that price these days.)

So, now that you know, here’s a selected list of affordable races for the month of July.
