The Amazing Pinoy Fun Run: Putting the “Fun” back to Fun Run

The running culture in the Philippines is certainly getting stronger year after year and so does the runners who, just a few years back were running short distances but now running full-marathons. In many running events, it has been very evident that a longer distance category has the most number of delegations.

Apparently, many beginners this year are finding hard to get a good start in running life style simply because many got too intimidated by seasoned runners. That is why; running organizers are now geared to organizing shorter distances to put back the “Fun” in the fun run.

This coming April 27, 2013, a very unusual run organizer will stage the Amazing Pinoy Fun Run at the popular running hub of the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. This band of athletes is most popularly known in a different type of sport which is full-contact rugby. I’m talking about, our very own; the Philippine Volcanoes headed by Andrew Wolf, Chris Everingham and celebrities Jon Avila and Survivor Philippines finalists, Sheena Vera Cruz.

Primarily, the objective of this endeavor is to promote the running to those who are contemplating to start a running as a healthy life style. The running event will feature some other challenges along the course that is fun and unique. These obstacles are moderately challenging so that all runners will enjoy it. As an advocacy, the run will also benefit two foundations namely Filipino Needy Children’s Fund and Clark jets Rugby club, a group of underprivileged youths who are into rugby and are being trained by the Philippine Volcanoes themselves.

Last March 19, 2013, members of the media, both traditional and online were invited to witness the press launching of the Pinoy Amazing Fun Run at the second level of Fitness and Athletics at the Bonifacio Global City. At the press launch, one thing that is very noticeable, is that the Volcanoes were very much hands on in running the event. Much different from the other fun run launch I’ve attended where celebrity ambassadors limited only to answer questions from the press and pose in photo ops. As much as these athletes were the ones running everything, they were also the ones who did the distribution of kits themselves, and even cleaned up the place after the press launch ended. Truly, these athletes are not just modeling sports and healthy life style but a healthy character as well, that everyone should emulate. 

The Amazing Pinoy Fun Run is now open for registration in all Chris Sports outlet in Metro Manila, Fitness & Athletics and ROX. This event is also supported by Golds Gym, Greenwich, Energizer, Chick, The Medical City, Timex, Berocca, Jack City, Jack TV, ETC, Manila Bulletin and Philippine Daily Inquirer.
