Last week, I wrote about the St. Luke’s Eye Run as one of the races for causes I support. This week I have great news and a MAJOR UPDATE: due to more sponsors coming in, the registration fee for all categories (3K/6K/12K) is now at a flat rate of P500. Of course, 100% of the reg fee still goes to the beneficiary, the charity eye surgery patients of St. Luke’s.
Additionally, all 12K finishers will receive a finisher shirt from Smith Optics.
Top winners for all race categories will receive a medal, P50,000 worth of personal accident insurance from SunLife, and a gift pack from Toby’s Sports, Adidas Body Care, and Dona Maria.
Up for grabs on race day are the following raffle prizes: cellphones from MyPhone and Sun Cellular, watches from Soleus, Sun broadband kits, gift packs from Toby’s Sports, Adidas Body Care and Resorts World, and a gift certificate from F1 Hotel & Tagaytay Hotel.
Participants can also expect the following give-aways at the race venue: Purefoods hotdog, Pan De Pugon pandesal, Tang and DOLE juice, Tullys coffee and banana, Big Chill fruit shake, Nature Valley and Kelloggs fruit shake, Soyami Chips chips, FujiFilm photo booth, ON Optimum energy supplements, B&L vitamins, DKT condoms, Resorts World visor and membership card, St. Luke’s Medical Center bags and fans, and Sun Life Financial personal accident insurance.
For EARLY REGISTRANTS who paid the old reg fee, there will be a rebate booth on the event day (March 11) to claim your refunds.
I’m super thankful that there are race organizers and sponsors who have stepped up efforts so that people can still enjoy quality races at affordable prices.

UPDATE March 7, 2012: Eye Run race venue has been moved to 34th Street, Bonifacio Global City (near Mercato) per request by BGC Management. Race routes have been adjusted accordingly. This is a larger venue and there’s lots of parking behind the Turf BGC field, so it will be more convenient for participants. Please help spread the word about the venue change!
