This is one run you should not miss! Finally, a fun run for FREE! Woot! Woot!
Not your ordinary Sunday race as this doesn't give you a singlet or a medal or a shirt after the run. Not loot bags either. No timing chip too. Just a fun fun fun run (you can bike too) along some of the historical sites in Manila.
Note for all: Please Read this from Carlos Celdran. He was the one who started this. Then, while we (#helpDOT tweeps) are having a brainstorming meeting last Friday at Department of Tourism with U.Sec Enteng Romano, I suggested that we can also have runners during that bike tour. So this fun run was born.
Don't expect too much. This is just an advocacy run to help Department of Tourism (#helpDOT)- that's all. I encourage runners who are interested to learn something from our own history while running (healthy na, historical pa).
What will I gain here? Nothing. Just a genuine support to our DOT. Meet runners and tour Manila for free. I believe SMART Philippines will cover this event too!
Any help I can do? Join us! Promote! Promote! Blog about this! Tweet! Facebook this! Make a shout out! O btw, we need photographers so we can make this thing viral.
