The Frontera Verde-Julia Vargas-Lanuza Streets and the roads around Philsports Complex (Ultra Track Oval) have been my long run training grounds with my running team for sometime now. These are wide cemented or asphalt roads with hills galore that is best ran early in the morning during week-ends.
It’s rather seldom that fun runs or road races are held here but when there are, expect some very challenging hills and a homey village feel as you run outside of the various Valle Verde village residences.
If you’re looking forward to run in this area, the Anawim Grace Fun Run 2014 will hold a 10k/5k/3k race exactly in this area on January 26, 2014. This is going to be organized by the Pinoy Aspiring Runners (PAR) running team, a large group of runners who have one of the most encouraging and enthusiastic members around.
I have lots of friends from this group and the support, encouragement, friendly vibes and new friends you make is just amazing! Let’s all support their race as this is for a good cause!

Anawim Grace is a benefit run that is organized by Pinoy Aspiring Runners that will be held on January 26, 2014 at the Frontera Verde Grounds in Pasig.
ANAWIM Foundation is a center that serves as home to the sick and poor elderly located in Montalban, in the outskirts of Metro Manila. ANAWIM comes from the Hebrew word that means “the lost and forgotten ones.” It was founded in early 1990 by Brother Bo Sanchez, a lay Catholic preacher.
The Center occupies a 5 hectare property that contains 11 resident structures, a chapel, three concrete homes, a social hall/dining area, mini-clinic, recreation area, fish pond, and a cemetery. The Center cares for about 55-65 elderly people. It employs 40 salaried staff including health caregivers, a full-time nurse, and two assistant nurses. A volunteer doctor comes once a week.
ANAWIM has become a refuge for the poorest of the poor. “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
