I last participated in this run sometime 2009 and remember the small number of runners hugging the academic oval and the surrounding route all by ourselves. During this time, I was just getting back into running after years of inactivity and after just 3 weeks of preparation, i finished the 10k in about 1:30, all flushed out!
I could barely move the following day but it was a great experience running my comeback race in this sprawling campus and this triggered back my interest to train seriously again.
If you missed racing at the U.P. campus after the grounds were banned to external race organizers, the UP JPIA will again be your hosts as they stage the Tiktakbo Fit ‘N Five Run on September 9, 2012 (Sunday). This time, they will have a 15k distance run, together with a 3k, 5k buddy and 5km solo run.
This annual fun run organized by the UP Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants aims to raise funds for the benefit of the LEAP (Long-term Educational Assistance Program) Scholars, the organization’s scholarship program. Here are the details of the race:
