Milo Philippines held its own marathon on July 4 where hundreds of runners participated. Unfortunately, one runner (Remus Fuentes) died after the event because of multiple organ failures. His death was the result of heatstroke two days after he ran the 21K in the recent 34th Milo Marathon last Sunday, July 4, 2010. To read the story, click here.
Days after the news has circulated over the net, Milo released their official statement.
I found this on their official Facebook page. You can check out Milo Philippines’ in Facebook and read other people’s comments.
This is definitely a wake-up call to both event organizers and runners. May Mr. Remus Fuentes rest in peace.
