The Philippine Merchant Marine Academy invites runners to join their Bicentennial Fun Run happening this January 25, 2020 at the Quirino Grandstand.
The PMMA, the pioneer institution in maritime education in the country is supported by government funds with help from the shipping industry. It is the proud mother of the finest Filipino merchant marine officers — master mariners, chief engineers, shipping executives, naval officers, excellent educators and trainors now serving in marine and maritime-related industries in our country and abroad.
Originally named “Escuela Nautica de Manila”, created by virtue of a Spanish Royal decree issued on January 1, 1820, the school was inaugurated on April 5 of the same year. It was renamed as the Philippine Nautical School (PNS) during the American occupation. In 1963, Republic Act 3680 converted it into the Philippine Merchant Marine Academy. So when they say “Bicentennial” they mean TWO HUNDRED YEARS!
