2016 Condura Skyway Marathon

The 2016 Condura Marathon will start at the Skyway Alabang entry point along Alabang-Zapote road and will end at Filinvest City in Alabang. This year's "Run For a Hero" advocacy supports the HERO Foundation in their mission to provide educational assistance to children and  dependent siblings of Filipino soldiers killed in action or totally incapacitated while in the line of duty.

Last year's Condura Marathon supported the SAF 44, the ill-fated police officers from last year's controversial Mamasapano clash.

Skyway management will keep the "At-Grade" portion open for motorists during the event.
