Race Results: Race For The Orphans

Rundezvous Events, Inc, organizers of the Race For The Orphans would like to thank and congratulate all runners who joined this morning’s  run at Camp Aguinaldo! We hope you all enjoyed yourselves and wished you achieved a Personal Best despite our shortcomings and simple staging of this race.

Some found the course a little bit challenging so we know how hard it must have been for runners, specially those running the route for the first time in tackling those gentle rolling hills.

We were blessed with a very cooperative weather this morning so we hope nobody got dehydrated and gave everybody a chance to savor the scenery. We really are so grateful to all our sponsors who have made this race possible, to the various running clubs who either ran the race or supported it by being volunteers… our heartfelt thanks!

The UNOFFICIAL race results are now available at www.runningmate.ph

All race time inquiries should be addressed to racetime@runningmate.ph so they can take up your concerns immediately.

We hope to see you again in Rundezvous Events’ future race, coming soon!

A RACE FOR THE ORPHANS

A race for the orphans, a race for your hearts! A very special race for the month of the heart—The Race For The Orphans will stir the Camp Aguinaldo Grounds in the still misty morning of February 12, 2011 each not only to experience running the peaceful grounds of the military camp but to take part in answering the orphans cry for love and compassion.

It is with this aim that Rundezvous Events Inc., will stage this event that will provide scholarship grants through “I-Hope”, a trust fund that will support the educational needs of these orphans of soldiers killed in action in Mindanao and for future grantees of the AFP Educational Benefit System (AFPEBS).

Each runner pays a modest registration fee of P600.00 for the 10k run and P400.00 for the 5k run. Inclusive with this fee is a nice running singlet available in various sizes, a Timing tag, race bib number and a goodie bag from our sponsors.

Our registration Centers will be at the Secondwind Running Stores in Ortigas and Quezon City; ROX at Bonifacio High Street and at A Running Circle (ARC) along Quirino Avenue corner Roxas Blvd., Manila.

“We shall leave no soldiers’ orphan behind”. This is the AFP Educational Benefit System Office’s (AFPEBSO) tagline, an organization which deeply recognizes the heroism in each Filipino soldier. It is one of the morale and welfare outfits of the Armed Forces of the Philippines that grant educational benefits both to the military personnel and their dependents with the aim of helping them secure a brighter future. As it recognizes our soldiers’ heroism, especially of those who lay down their lives in protecting peace, AFPEBSO gives priority to the orphans of Filipino soldiers who were killed in action.

We’ll see you at Camp Aguinaldo on February 12, 2012!
