TCS Clark Animo International Marathon on May 10

UPDATE: The TCS Clark Animo International Marathon has been rescheduled to May 10, 2020 in line with concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Please find more details on the official TCS Clark Animo Facebook page.

From its humble beginnings as a fun run in Clark Field with 600 participants, the TCS Clark Animo International Marathon is now in its eleventh year with an expected 10,000 participants across its 2.5K/5K/10K/21K/42K distance categories racing on March 8, 2020 May 10, 2020 at Clark Global City.

Organized by the De La Salle Alumni Association Pampanga (DLSAA-P) Chapter, the TCS Clark Animo International Marathon is entering into its fifth year partnered with leading technology company Tata Consultancy Services. TCS is also launching a mobile application for the race, where participants can get all the information they need.

TCS is also the worldโ€™s largest corporate sponsor of distance running events, including TCS New York City Marathon, TCS Amsterdam Marathon, Tata Mumbai Marathon, as well as partnerships in Boston, Chicago, London, Singapore and multiple other marquee races.

The courses in the Animo run will be given international certification by the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) and the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS).

“Because we aim to give the best race experience to the participants, all races are IAAF-AIMS Certified Courses,” said Jumbo Tayag, race director. “This guarantees that participants run the correct distance, with a valid recorded time recognized internationally for qualifying and rankings purposes.” Tayag likewise asserts that “Animo Run participants who aim to join international races such as the Boston Marathon will definitely have an advantage.”

The Animo run also aims to raise funds to support DLSAA-P’s various community projects on the environment and education.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third placers of the 5-kilometer, 10-kilometer, 21-kilometer, and 42-kilometer distances in the menโ€™s and womenโ€™s categories. Likewise, one runner each from the Adult category (18 years old and above) and Kiddie category (17 years old and below) will receive cash incentives.

A special award will also be given to the runner with the best costume.
