No, this is not a boot camp where obstacle races are a norm. The Camp Run series at Camp Aguinaldo is a straight running event composed of 5k and 10k distances with a military booth camp theme. This race is organized by X-tribe and is the second of a series of runs for the benefit of enhancing the education of children in the Philippines.
Their next race is on November 27, 2011 and here are the details of the race:

CAMP AGUINALDO QUEZON CITY
If you find yourself wanting to experience how it is in boot camp, then eXtribe’s Camp Run Series 2011 is for you. The series’ second installation will be held this November 27, 2011 at the Parade Grounds of Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.
The November 27 Camp Run will still feature a military or boot camp theme, and will maintain the format and route it started with. This is in accordance with eXtribe’s objective to encourage continuous participation rather than competitiveness. The organizers hope the Camp Run Series will ultimately be developed to become a nationwide program or template.
The November 27 run will have both 5 kilometers and 10 kilometers distances and will start at 7:00 in the morning. Participants may expect the same secure and pollution-free race grounds inside Camp Aguinaldo, which has less traffic movement than the regular thoroughfares of usual running routes. Aside from needed facilities such as ample water stations and accurate kilometer and directional markings, runners will also receive a race packet containing the event shirt, race bib, a timing chip (for those doing the 10km distance), route map, and a copy of the mechanics and rules and regulations when they register for the run. A military dog tag will be waiting for finishers at the end of the race.
Camp Run 2011 is one of the programs under eXtribe’s campaign “Race2Raise,” an initiative to foster community involvement and sustainable support for the company’s partner foundations. The beneficiaries that will benefit from the series are the DepEd Adopt a School Program, ABSCBN’s E-media Project, H.E.R.O. Foundation Inc., and the 57-75 Movement: Reverse the Education Crisis. Every participant who registers at Camp Run helps contribute to the donation that will be given to the partner beneficiaries.
Interested parties may go to New Balance Glorietta, New Balance Shangri-La and New Balance Trinoma starting November 7-24, 2011. The 5km distance costs Php400.00, while the fee for the 10km is Php600.00. One hundred pesos (Php100) of the fees will be given to the Race2Raise beneficiaries.
