RUN AND help the City of Marawi rise again by joing the “NCAA Solidarity Run 2018: Bangon Marawi” to be held on January 28 at Plaza Rajah Sulayman along Roxas Boulevard. An estimated 5,000 students and alumni of the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s 10 member schools and fun run enthusiasts are expected to answer the starting gun at 4:00 AM.
“We want to help our brothers and sisters in Marawi recover from the siege last year,” said Fr. Glynn Ortega OAR of San Sebastian College. “We also want to promote physical fitness to our students and to everyone as well by joining fun runs like this one.”
Runners can choose from 10, five and three kilometers. Special kiddie races of one and three kilometers for those aged seven to 10 years will also be held but members of the school’s Track and Field varsity are not allowed to join.
Registration fee is set at PHP 500.00 for all distances. The race kit consists of a singlet and race bib plus all participants will be treated to a rave party immediately after the run.
