Many people may know of Dumaguete Vice Mayor Alan Gel Cordova as a West Pointer, Lawyer and former Dumaguete City Councilor. But perhaps not as many know this trim public official as a running buff.

Cordova will be joining wellness enthusiasts when he runs in the 10.5K segment of the Rice is Life Dumaguete Adventure Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 21.{{more}}

The DAM, dubbed as Foundation University’s gift to Dumaguete City on the occasion of its charter day and fiesta, will definitely fill Dumaguete’s streets with runners, as some 3000 have already signed up for the event. The DAM is now on its second year, but Foundation University has been organizing runs for Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental, in cooperation with the Metro Dumaguete Road Runner’s Club for the past several years.

The Adventure Marathon itself, reaching 31.5 kilometers, will take runners from Robinson’s Dumaguete to Pulangtubig, Camanjac, Calabnugan in Sibulan and barangays Balili, Cambucad, Pulangbago and Palinpinon in Valencia before heading back for the finish at Robinson’s.

There will also be shorter categories, the 10.5k, 5k and 3k for other participants.

Robinson’s Dumaguete Mall is one of the sponsors of this event, which proudly advocates rice conservation as its advocacy. The Philippine Rice Research Institute, another major sponsor, has given several sacks of rice to be given out as prizes for the winners.

After the run on Sunday morning, the action will shift to the activity center of Robinson’s Dumaguete Mall for the Rice is Life cookfest. Several contestants from Dumaguete’s colleges and universities will compete on making dishes out of rice.

Registration may be done online at the Dumaguetemarathon.com website.
