Another exciting race from Runrio.Inc: Globe's Run For Home 2011. d
Per and I have done the two previous Run for Home events and both were quite spectacular - in that the 21km routes passed through Ayala Avenue before heading towards the finish line. The first Run for Home event introduced the Chip Timer to the Philippines Running Community, for more accurate race results. It was also Per's first 21km race, which I ran with her.
We did again last year's 21km Globe's Run for Home event and had a good time running in and out of Greenbelt area amid the hot, humid weather.
But this isn't just an ordinary run. It's a run for a good cause, and as a runner, you have four options as to where your money would go to:
Gawad Kalinga - builds communities to end poverty through its community development programs
Habitat for Humanity - funds to be used to build houses for public school teachers
Haribon Foundation - for conservation of Natural Resources and improvement of environmental issues
Virlanie Foundation - provides home and education to abandoned, neglected, abused and orphaned children
