GERALD TABIOS
Ultra Runner


I always believe living in a well-balanced life. My passion is ultrarunning but also love running marathons, 10k's and 5k's.

I was born in Malaybalay City, Philippines in 1969. I am a graduate of Xavier University in Civil Engineering in Cagayan de oro City, Philippines. Now, I am currently residing in Elmhurst, New York with wife Donna and our two teens.

In 2001, me and my wife decided to migrate in New York. Then I ran my first Marathon at the New York City Marathon in 2004. Since then, I had been a “streaker” for the New York City Marathon up to the present. Finally, on a Memorial Day weekend of 2011, I decided to try my first 50k ultramarathon, which was a few years earlier I swore I would never do. From then on I was "bitten by the bug". To date, I have completed more than 100 marathons/ultramarathons.

As a father and a husband,  my greatest challenge is juggling work, family and running.

I hope this site inspires you to challenge yourself, run for life and be happy.
