I vividly remember one of my first races at the McKinley Hill one February morning in 2009 where the starting line was located at an obscure area within McKinley that we had to ask for directions from security guards manning the buildings around. The start turns out to be at the back of the Chinese International School (who would have known as there were no markings on the school building).
That race, the RUNEW Race was one of the few 15k races i joined that year and remembering what fun it was running that distance.

This year, the RUNEW Race will be back on February 26 and will be held at the Filinvest Corporate City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City. This race is being organized by the Asian Hospital and Medical Center with Runrio as race director.
This race will help raise funds for the Asian Hospital Charities, Inc.’s charitable endeavors in sharing the Asian Hospital and Medical Center’s facilities and their doctor and staff’s expertise, time and energy to less fortunate patients and coordinate the provision of healthcare to beneficiaries by competent specialists.
