AIR RUN, the third leg of the “Takbo PARa Sa Kalikasan” series, will be held on September 30, 2018 at the Liwasang Ulalim of the Cultural Center of the Philippines starting at 3:00 AM. This event is presented by the Pinoy Aspiring Runners (PAR) and MnK Concept and Events for the benefit of the Haribon Foundation.
Runners will surely be challenged this time by the half-marathon or 21 kilometers as the distances increase from leg to leg. There will also be 10, five and three-kilometer categories.
Registration is ongoing at Garmin branches located at SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM City North EDSA, Alabang Town Center, Glorietta 5 and Uptown Mall-BGC. Fees are set at PHP 950.00 (21 kilometers), PHP 750.00 (10 kilometers), PHP 650.00 (five kilometers) and PHP 550.00 (three kilometers).
All finishers will be rewarded with a medal that may be connected to the medals from the previous legs in order to form one large medal. T-shirts will also be given to all half-marathon finishers and all will be given loot bags from sponsors and event partners.
In line with the race’s advocacy of environmental awareness, all participants are encouraged to bring their own refillable drink containers. This is in order to lessen the garbage and waste that may be created along the race course.
The Air Run is the highly-anticipated continuation of the successful series that began with the Fire Run last April and the Water Run last June that promotes caring for Mother Earth. An estimated 3,000 runners participated in each leg with more expected to sign up for the Air Run.
