Lito Brio represents the “old guard” of Manila’s running community. He has been active ever since the original running boom in the 1980’s, back when the level of competition was higher than it is nowadays. As a result of the many years of experience in running, Lito still paces with and outclasses most of the current generation of runners, which is why TPB enjoys having him in the line up.
Lito is one of the members of RunnersLink, Manila’s “original” running team composed of many of the more mature elite runners, as well as some young and talented up-and-comers. It was this squad – together with Lito – who managed to snatch the Championship title away from TPB at the 2011 Octoberun. Consequently, Lito Brion is the only runner who has won the title in both 2010 and 2011!
