Want to start running but don’t know how to begin? Join a fun run! The Amazing Pinoy Fun Run on April 27, 2013 aims to get new people into running with a unique twist on the fun run formula.
Amazing Pinoy Fun Run on April 27, 2013
Instead of the usual non-stop running, participants will encounter interactive challenge stations along the way. Photographers will also be stationed on the course to immortalize your first fun run moments.
Post-race, get your photos taken with celebrities such as Sheena Vera Cruz from Amazing Race Philippines, Eric “Eruption” Tai from It’s Showtime, Jon Avila, Philippine Volcanoes Andrew Wolff and Chris Everingham, among others. There will also be an Azkals vs. Volcanoes exhibition race featuring current and former national football and rugby athletes. Check out the promotional video:
I can’t resist making this pun, but you can kickstart your fitness journey with the Azkals and Volcanoes! (Because they kick balls for a living! Get it? Sorry, corny pala. It was funny in my head before I wrote it.)
(Since this is a fun run, not a race, participants will not be timed individually. But you can check out your finish time on the big clock as you cross the finish line.)
Amazing Pinoy Fun Run ambassadors Andrew Wolff and Chris Everingham want to make the Philippines fitter, so there are distances for every beginner’s level of fitness: 2K (for those who have never run any distance before), 5K, and 10K. Early bird registration fees are P500 (2K), P550 (5K), and P700 (10K). Early bird registration ends on March 25, after which regular registration fees are P600 (2K), P650 (5K), and P800 (10K).
Registration is in-store at Chris Sports (Glorietta 3, SM North EDSA, SM Sucat, SM Mall of Asia, SM Fairview, SM Manila, SM Megamall, Robinsons Ermita, Festival Mall), Fitness and Athletics BGC, and R.O.X. You can also register online at amazingpinoyrun.com.
The Amazing Pinoy Fun Run is being held for the benefit of the Filipino Needy Children’s Fund and the Clark Foundation.
