I’ve been running races in the Roxas Boulevard area for a few months now and I’m starting to miss Bonifacio Global City. So I’m really looking forward to Run BGC’s repeat this year (I missed last year’s race). Of course, BGC being the home of most running events, people may have grown tired of the same old race routes.
Run BGC 2011: A Level Higher
That’s why this year Run BGC offers an alternative event aside from the 3K, 5K, and 10K race categories. Introducing: 3K and 5K with flag football! BGC is also home to some flag football events held by the B-League Football Club, whose members will be facilitating the flag football portion during Run BGC.
Do check out the mechanics for the running and flag football fusion event. It sounds really interesting especially for multi-talented athletes good with both their feet and hands. As for me, I’m too chicken to try to catch a leather missile, so I can still opt for the 3K, 5K, or 10K pure running categories. Registration fees are P500 for 3K (w/ or w/o flag football), P600 for 5K (w/ or w/o flag football), and P700 for 10K.
There’s also a raffle for finishers which gives you a chance to win a trip for two to join a race in Australia — or the cash equivalent of P155,000 (!!!).
In-store registration is until November 23, 2011 at the following venues:
- Toby’s/RUNNR: Shangri-La Mall, SM Mall of Asia, Bonifacio High Street (may be moved to Riovana)
- Planet Sports: Trinoma, Glorietta
- The Athlete’s Foot: Robinson’s Galleria, Alabang Town Center
