Globe Run For Home 2010 In Pictures

Last night during the Bloggers Lauching of the Globe-Ayala Land Run For Home 2010, we were given the heads-up on the race event, from the mechanics of the registration, objectives, race routes, timing chips and the chance to update your friends live once you cross that finish line… via Facebook!

Here’s a summary of the event, pictures included:

Globe-Ayala Land Run For Home 2010:

Run for Home is a sporting event led by Globe and Ayala Land, to be held on March 21 at the Ayala Triangle Gardens in the Makati Central Business District.
This is a run for the human race:  To provide affordable and decent housing for Filipinos in need, through Globe’s longtime ally, Habitat for Humanity Philippines.
It is a run for people of all ages and experience levels, with courses ranging from 3km to a half-marathon distance of 21km.

Organizer: Finish Line

Globe is giving away P170,000 worth of cash prizes.  Race winners can get cash prizes of up to P 15,000 and gift certificates worth P5,000 from New Balance.
But the true winner is the families who will benefit from Run for Home, through Habitat for Humanity.

Run for Home is different from other running events, for these reasons:

The first-ever race route through the Makati Central Business District
We wanted to give the runners a unique experience by letting them pass through an area that is usually busy and congested, but which on race day will be reserved just for them.
This will be the first ever running event to be held at the Ayala Triangle Gardens in the middle of the Makati Central Business District.

The use of an environmentally-friendly singlet
The Run for Home 2010 singlet is part of your race kit.
It is made from 100% recycled PET bottles and is being used for the first time ever in a Philippine running event.

There are 5 courses:
3 km:  Estimated to take 15 minutes to complete
5 km:  Estimated to take 30 minutes to complete
10 km : Estimated to take 1 hour and 10 minutes to complete
15 km:  Estimated to take 1 hour and 45 minutes to complete
21 km:   Estimated to take 2 hours and 20 minutes to complete

Globe is donating a portion of the proceeds to Habitat for Humanity Philippines, with the common goal of building communities through volunteerism.
The donation will be handed over to Habitat for Humanity on race day, March 21, at the Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati City.

Habitat for Humanity is a global organization dedicated to uplifting people’s lives by providing them affordable and durable housing. In partnership with Habitat for Humanity Philippines, Globe will support the construction of new housing units to address the need for resettlement of the informal settlers from the Pasig riverbanks, a project initiated by Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig (KBIP).  Run for Home 2010 will help fund the construction of houses in Bayanijuan sa Calauan, a 100-hectare resettlement community in Barangay Dayap, Calauan, Laguna. This initiative is part of the Ayala Group of Companies’ commitment to build communities for those in need.

The course has been checked for safety. It will feature water stations, paramedic teams and portable toilets along the way.
There will also be a baggage deposit area at the race venue, and designated parking areas for participants and spectators.

–Participating runners each get an electronic timing chip that will track your moves and performance, auto-feed status updates to your Facebook account as you pass the finish line and allow you to get race pictures and analysis of your performance during the run.

–Within the same week as Run for Home 2010, you can download your race photos for free at type in your race number and you can find all photos with yourself in it.

–Competitive runners can also check their individual race results after the event, and get a detailed assessment of your running performance, e.g., your ranking vs. the total field of runners, your average speed during the race, your split times (time per lap/kilometer).

–And on race day, if your family and friends can’t be there to watch you live, they can watch a live streaming feed of the finish line by visiting

  1. Hi Sir Rene! I remember last year it had free load hehe. Also got struck down with ITBS during the race. Anyway. dont think I can race this, will still be in BDM recovery. Will be there for support though!

    • I remember that race, Luis. When i saw you limping. i know you were in trouble. Ahh, that famous finish line photo was classic!”-)

  2. I miss their previous pricing scheme, although registering as a group still makes it cheaper than “pop” races of recent. Good thing it is still for a good cause and the route was “improved.”

    Those are very nice sets of pictures! I’ll be making this my post-BDM “pasyal” race 😀

  3. sounds like a very well-planned event. we’re already gathering groups to register. am i correct to assume that the route will be closed off from motorists come race day? parang ganun kasi dating pag sinabing “the road is reserved for you”.

    nice nice!

    • Hi Calvin– i’m sure “most” will be closed, specially those at makati CBD. At the Fort where the 21 k’ers will pass, i’m not so sure, though.:-)

    • Hi Ling! I like to run when it’s silent. Makes you concentrate more on your breathing.:-)

      Thanks for dropping by!

    • I agree, Schlagger. There were races in the past which passed thru the CBD. i think they were referring to this race as ‘starts and ends at cbd’.

      • sir, the cerebral palsy run (2001) and direct link open classic run (2003) were both held in the ayala triangle area… 5k loop, ayala ave – buendia – makati ave – paseo. 🙂 though these definitely werent big races (by todays standards) with roughly just 300-400 participants each.

  4. it’s Globe(run for home) VS Smart(thegreenmiles run) on March 21, hirap pumili ng sasalihan sana they give way to each other, both race are for a good cause..

    • Hi Jay– i attended both press launching and i’m sure Piolo’s race will attract a considerable number of runners too!

  5. races to support the charitable institution or foundation is always worth of our money…thanks Sir for this blog, still thinking if I’ll join this..Godbless!..Love reading your blogs..^_^

  6. Sir Rene,

    I’m just trying my luck… maybe you can help me.
    I tried to register for RUN for Home yesterday but the rep told me that close na daw for the whole category. Maybe you know someone selling his or her 21k race kit?


    • Hi Anton. I called up my friend at Globe and indeed, he told me that all categories of the race are now closed. I’ll ask around if someone might want to sell their packet.

      • Thanks Sir Rene…

        My girl suprised me that she will join the race pero ako hindi umabot.

        Sayang naman… please txt me at 09159358432 if you found one.

        Good lookin’ out
