As part of the continuing celebration of the 150th Birth Anniversary of Jose Rizal and History Week Celebration, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines and Animo Events Management Inc., will spearhead a fun run entitled “RUN RIZAL” on September 18, 2011.
The run will start and end at the Rizal Monument and will wind through Roxas Blvd. and Diosdado Macapagal Avenue. Runners can participate in the 3K, 5K, 10K, and 16K categories. Proceeds of this activity will be given to continue the preservation of the three Rizal Shrines administered by the NHC--the Rizal Shrine in Calamba, Rizal Shrine in Dapitan and Rizal Shrine in Fort Santiago.
Registration fee is P600 for 16K and P500 for 3K, 5K, and 10K (inclusive of singlet, timing chip and bib). There will be a promo for students, government employees and novice runners for the 3K category at P150 joining fee inclusive of timing chip and bib only.
Registration is open starting this July 29 at the following venues: NHCP main office in T.M. Kalaw St. Ermita, Manila; Quezon Memorial Shrine (QMS); and Quezon City Circle. Special medals will be given to all 16K runners and the first 100 medals will be given out to all male and female participants in the 3K, 5K, 10K categories.
