Two Dagupeños complete six World Marathon Majors

By April 30, 2022Sports


UNKNOWN perhaps to many Dagupeños, the city prides itself with the accomplishments of two world marathoners: William Lee Chua and Manuel Lim Jr.

Both Chua and Lim started running in 2014 and recently accomplished their last mission in Boston with personal records of 5 hours 10 mins n 58 seconds (William) and 5 hours 39 minutes (Manuel).

Both have since joined and finished five World Marathon Majors in the cities of Berlin, Tokyo, New York, London and Chicago.

Chua, 56, who comes from a family in the lumber and construction supply business, Tony’s Lumber, owns a freight and forwarding business in Dagupan.


Lim, 60, and his family are in the dry goods and school supplies business, Bazar Mariano Lim.

They would have completed the WMM had it not been for the pandemic. (Contributed)
