This is the slogan statement from the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) website for the upcoming fun run entitled “Run Rizal.” This activity is still part of the 150th birth anniversary celebration of Jose Rizal and is jointly organized by NHCP and Animo Events Management, Inc.
“Run Rizal” will be held on September 18, 2011 and will start from the Rizal Monument in Luneta. Run distances include 3K, 5K, 10K, [the registration fee for the three is 500 pesos] and 16K [registration fee: 600 pesos]. (Personally, 5K seems quite easy but I have misgivings about participating in the 10K run.) The amount that will be raised for this fun run will be used for the benefit of Rizal Shrine Calamba, Rizal Shrine Dapitan, and Rizal Shrine Fort Santiago.
Upon payment of the fees, you will be given a singlet, a timing chip, and a bib. Discounts are offered for government employees, students, and novice runners at a cost of 150 pesos for 3k run only.
Registration areas include:
- NHCP Main Office, T.M. Kalaw St., Ermita, Manila
- Quezon Memorial Shrine; Quezon City Circle
- Team Manila Stores in Trinoma, SM Mall of Asia and Rockwell
- Phiten Stores at Robinsons Galleria and Shangri-la Mall.
For further details, do not hesitate to contact Rovic Canono (Race Director) at telephone number 975-1317 or Mona Lisa Quizon and Quennie Ann Palafox at telephone numbers 523-9050 and 523-1037.
