The Pink Run: October 5, 2014

Wearing a pink shirt, logo or ribbon has become akin to expressing awareness and raising funds for breast cancer treatment. The cause itself is so undeniably great that thousands  of groups all around the world are spreading awareness of this silent enemy that has plague women for years.

Breast cancer claims hundreds of lives every year. It knows no demographics and can afflict your wife, daughter, mom, sister or friend. What’s alarming are not just the statistics of people afflicted with the disease but on the number of people whose lives could have been saved if only early, self detection was observed. Early detection remains the best weapon against the disease.

On October 5, 2014 the Venice Piazza along McKinley Hill in Taguig will be the venue of the PINK RUN 2014. With Under Armour Sports Apparel as main sponsor, this will be a 3k, 5k, 10k and 16k Run with proceeds to be used for subsidizing awareness research activities and treatments for indigent sufferers of breast cancer. This run is spearheaded by the Philippine Society of General Surgeons (PSGS).

QCIM Half-Marathon Night Run: November 29, 2014

The First Quezon City International Marathon (QCIM) was held in December 2009 born out of a running club’s dream (RUNNEX) of  creating an international running event in Quezon City.

This year though, instead of a full marathon, a Half-Marathon will be in the offing on November 29, 2014 and will be held at night. They decided not to pursue a full marathon this year “because we want to encourage people to experience the event, have fun and celebrate the 75th anniversary of Quezon City”, race officials said during the launching of this race yesterday at Annabel’s in Quezon City.

This run shall cover 3 other categories, the 3k, 5k and 10k with cash prizes totalling about P372,000.00 for the top 3 finishers in each category. There will be two award divisions, one exclusively for Quezon City residents and those residing outside of the city. Start and finish will be at the Quezon Memorial Circle with Pro Active Events as the race organizers. This race is open to all local and foreign entries.
