The island of Siargao in Surigao del Norte has been gaining vast popularity among tourists. Other thank its world-renowned surf breaks, the island boasts of beautiful beaches, clear waters, scenic views and natural wonders.

In support of Del Carmen Mayor Alfredo Matugas Coro's mangrove rehabilitation program that he has started since coming into office in 2010, RunRio Events, Inc. and Open Space Media Inc. are launching the first Siargao International Marathon: Run for the Mangroves on July 23, 2017 to be held in Del Carmen, Siargao.
