I will be running with two of my running buddies from Team QuekQuek at the Manila Bay Clean Up Run happening on July 15, 2012 at CCP Complex . Good thing we were able to secure our registrations early because I just saw this morning that the registration is closed! We joined this run for two major reasons.
- Cause – the regular clean-up activities to contain and manage the pollution in the bay, and help the bio-diversity in the area to recover and flourish.
- 15 Distance Category – This will be the first time for one of my running buddy to "level-up" from the 10K category. We are just more than glad to run with her in 15K much more with such cause, plus we get to get a medal when we finish!
I’ve read from various feed backs that there was a good turn out of interested runners this year compared to last year, resulting to the organizers running out of race kits and then the delay for the release of race kits for later registrations.
I just hope that the good turn out of runners is due to interest for this run’s cause or the run itself and not the loot bag contents which include two “Ride All You Can” Star City tickets (LOL).
Anyway, I will be talking more about the loot bags and everything about this race during my post race piece, meanwhile let me check our 15K running route!
What about you? Are you running to clean up Manila Bay?
