THE ROUTE

The route is not so technical but is enough to give runners the real challenge of trail running. It is compose of 1.5 km cemented road before it enters another few kilometers of dirt, aggregate road with some sharp stones approaching the muddy uphills. It is advisable to wear road-to-trail running shoes. There are parts of steep descend which is so slippery especially when it rains then followed by river crossings. Expect to get wet.

Rivers are located somewhere about km 7-8. It’s perfect to soak in the fresh water to freshen up those tired legs and cool down the hot body temperature. The highlight would be the steel suspension bridge or the hanging bridge. Runners are advised to walk across it as the vibration makes it hard to run especially if many runners would cross at the same time.

With the goal of making integrity everyone’s concern and part of daily life, the Integrity Initiative – spearheaded by the Makati Business Club, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP), the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (AMCHAM), the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP), and Financial Executives of the Philippines (Finex)- is staging a historic run on December 12, 2015 at the CCP Complex, Pasay City.

Dubbed “I RUN for Integrity: I am Part of the Solution,” the event calls on all sectors of society to participate in this important step towards building a culture of integrity in the Philippines. It is expected to bring together 5,000 representatives and runners from government, business, youth, civil society, academe, church, and media towards the common goal of being part of the solution in fighting corruption.

At The I Run For Integrity launch

The event comes on the heels of the highly successful 2011 and 2012 editions of the run, which united a total of 12,000 runners. ECCP organizes this year’s running event in support of the Integrity Initiative, a private sector-led campaign that aims to promote common ethical standards among all sectors.

Established in 2009 by the Makati Business Club and ECCP, the Integrity Initiative operates on the principle of inclusion and collective action, and works on making the Philippines a leader in promoting an ethical business environment while eliminating negative practices. Since then, a good progress has been made to get the collective action against corruption and unethical business practices going. 2,000 company chief executives, 1,500 DPWH contractors, 42 high government officials, and 140 business organizations have already signified support to the Integrity Initiative and signed the Integrity Pledge.

Additionally, the Integrity Initiative has rolled-out a unified code of conduct in 2012, and the basic guidelines for ethical business behavior; introduced an online self-assessment tool to all signatories, which can be used to evaluate the areas for improvement in the integrity system within their organization; developed a validation process to validate the ratings from the self-assessment tool and will soon pilot a certification process for businesses.

“While the Integrity Initiative has already accomplished notable milestones, there’s still a lot that needs to be done. One of which is to encourage more engagement from individuals, especially the youth, to act with and uphold the value of integrity. This is why the theme of this year’s run is ‘I RUN for Integrity: I am part of the solution.’ The individual acts of integrity are sure to deliver remarkable collective result in the long run. Participating in the run event is a symbolic gesture of pledging to act with integrity,” said Henry Schumacher, Vice President of ECCP and the Integrity Initiative, Inc. “We expect this event to be another show of force by Filipinos from all walks of life who want to finish victorious over our fight with corruption. With this event, we seek to make integrity everyone’s mission,” Schumacher added.

Runners for the “I Run for Integrity: I am Part of the Solution” can choose to participate in the 3K, 5K, and 10K categories. Registration can be made at Chris’ Sports branches in Glorietta 3, Mall of Asia, Market! Market! and SM Megamall until December 4 only.
