Manila, Philippines - In celebration of the women's month and as an effort to empower women through fitness, Swift and Fit, headed by Coach Seannah Swift again organized the Binibining Marathon, happening this March.

"All-women means that the run is open for both natural-born women and those who are women-at-heart," Coach Seannah Swift said.

Happening for the second time around, the Binibining Marathoner boosts of promoting indigenous materials for its finisher medals and loot bags. There are 5 distance categories to choose from: 5K, 10K, 21K, 42K and the "Munting Binibini" category which is 3K for the kids.

Apart from the aim to empower women through running and promoting local materials for its finishers, Binibining Marathoner also goes beyond running as the proceeds of the event will go to the organizer's chosen charity, making the event a run for a cause.
