For a few quarters now, I’ve had the pleasure of contributing to Runners’ World by compiling upcoming races, and I’ve noticed a wonderful trend: there are more and more races being held outside of Metro Manila. If you’re getting tired of running the same routes, a destination race may be just the ticket for you.
In about a week’s time, I’ll be at the Greenfield City Clean Air Run in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, savoring the smog-free air while racing through new terrain. The best part about it is it’s a destination race with the same quality of organization I’ve come to expect from a run within the metro, since it’s part of the Runrio Series
Events are: 500-meter dash (P250), 5K & 10K (P600), and 21K (750). All kits come with a timing chip and singlet; the 21K comes with an additional finisher’s shirt. Shuttles will be available from BGC for those who need a ride to the race venue, but seats are on a first-come, first-served basis.
For more information, check out the Greenfield Clean Air Run microsite. In-store registration is until May 26 at ROX, Toby’s MOA, Planet Sports Galleria ↦ Trinoma, The Athlete’s Foot Galleria & ATC, and Paseo de Sta. Rosa.
