PRESS RELEASE

CLARK GLOBAL CITY – The De La Salle Alumni Association Pampanga Chapter is to set to hold the 10th TCS Clark Animo International Marathon on March 10 this year, promising a more fun and exhilarating run to this year’s event with internationally certified courses and special activities.

With 10,000 runners expected to join the event, it will feature a 42.2 km marathon, a half marathon, as well as 10 km, 5 km, and 2.5 km courses.

“We initially had 600 participants on our first year,” Atty, Melvin Panlilio, President of DLSAA – Pampanga, said. “But our runners and members of DLSAA-P gradually grew through the years, giving us the opportunity to give back to more beneficiaries.

“We’re likewise proud to announce that for 2019, our courses have been given international certification by the International Association of Athletic Federations and the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races,” he added.

“The TCS Clark Animo International Marathon and associated races are all conducted on IAAF-AIMS Certified Courses. This provides a guarantee to runners that they have run the correct distance and, therefore, their recorded time are valid and will be recognized internationally for qualifying and rankings purposes. This is not only particularly important for runners who aim to join international races like the Boston Marathon, it is for all runners participating in this event. It is never a good outcome to train for a race like a marathon only to discover, after completing the event, that the course they finished did not have the correct distance and their time invalid,” Jumbo Tayag, Race Director, explained.

To make Animo Run’s 10th year more exciting, cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third placers of the 5 km, 10 km, 21 km, and 42 km distances in the men’s and women’s categories. A special incentive will also be given to runners with the best costume. One runner each from the Adult (18 years old and above) and Kiddie (17 years old and below) categories will likewise receive cash prizes.

This year’s races will see 1,200 participants from Tata Consultancy Services, one of the biggest call center companies in Clark, and a sponsor of the event as well.

National Geographic Channel in partnership with Cherifer Premium and World Wildlife Fun for Nature (WFF), marks its eighth year of raising the public’s consciousness about environmental issues, social awareness through health and fitness by staging Earth Day Run 2017 this coming April 23 with a hashtag #8withEDR.  This year’s event aims to continue the tradition of being one of the biggest running events in the country, expecting scores of running enthusiast and Eco Warriors to register and run for the environment.  The event will be held not only in Manila but simultaneously in the cities of Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Taichung.

Earth Day Run 2017 in Manila will be held at the SM Mall of Asia grounds, where participants can join 5K, 10K, 21K and 42K categories. The event encourages and welcomes all types of Eco Warriors to take part, from fun-runners of all ages to the serious marathon runners who regularly compete. This year, Earth Day Run will also be sporting new features for its runners. As a special treat, all race kits will come with LED shoelaces, serving as a badge of pride and as a safety precaution for Eco Warriors running at night or before sunrise. Prizes will also be given to costumed runners who showcase their creativity by coming in their best ensemble made from recycled materials. Finally, to make each Eco Warrior’s voice heard in this run for the Earth, advocacy banners will be hanging above the finish line so that each runner can grab them as they cross to make a shout-out for the environment, keep as a souvenir, and use for all their post-run selfies to amplify the message of acting now to save the environment.

My 7-Eleven Run Adventure

From the successful Run 800 in 2013, suceeded by 3 more years of fun and eventful races that attracted more fitness enthusiasts, competitive and seasonal runners; another very succesful 7-Eleven Run was staged last Sunday, February 5, 2017, that invaded the Skyway and Filinvest City.

I regret to missed experiencing last year’s super fun Run 2016.  So this year, I make sure that I would not miss the fun.  Despite of enduring knee pain for the past few weeks, I decided to run the 21K category.  

Race Day 

Excited as I was, together with my blogger friend Rolly Pangilinan, we arrived early at the race venue.  The village was already open, some tents are already serving breakfast and I love the lugaw. 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And off we go…

At 2am, the first wave of 21k runners was deployed.  Me, Marinelle and Rolly were at the tje last wave and were deployed at 2:30.  I ran with Marinelle doing easy pace as I’m being careful with my stride and taking care of my left injured knee.  For the first kilometer, me, Nhel and Rolly are running togrther but at the 4th kilometer I am running by myself.  Running alone makes me more keen on my pace and how’s my left knee doing.  Fortunately, the route was perfectly planned – hydration every 1.5 km with overflowing water, Pocari, Gatorade and bananas.  One big help for the runners are the marshalls situated every 2 kilometers (I think), offering liniment spray for those who need them.  Kudos to the organizer for that.  That’s a really big help to us.

At the last 6-km mark, I am feeling a little pain from my knee coming up at the side of my hips.  Luckily, I bumped into Nhel again.  I decided to do a run-walk system.  Gladly, I’m wearing my Nike Zonal Strength tight and Under Armour Charged Bandit running shoes, they really gave me proper support and comfort throughout the race.  I was already limping in the last kilometer but hey, I have to smile as there are photographers along the last 200 meters.  We crossed the finished line tired but happy.  What a well-planned race route.

At the event village

After we crossed the finish line and got our finisher’s loot bags, I look for Rolly and met some of my friends and we rome around the village.  The village is full of happy people despite of being tired from running, especially the 24K runners.  We are the happiest runners that day.  We swam on freebies – tumblers, biscuits, juice, donuts, ice cream, etc, etc, etc!

Top finishers won cash prizes and medals for the winners,  and also the chance to join an international marathon in Asia. But the the rest of the runners, including me, are all winners.  Winner to the max sa freebies!  

I really had a blast despite of suffering ITBS.  I am so happy to see all my friends.  

Thank you so much 7-Eleven Philippines for such a wonderful race.  You made all the runners happy.  Congratulations and more power.
