Adobo Night Run, Oct. 30

Adobo is a popular dish in Philippine cuisine where the cooking process involves meat marinated in soy sauce, garlic vinegar, and black peppercorns.

In one of my travels abroad, adobo turned out to be part of the menu of a restaurant I visited.

In the running world, some runners have used the term as their moniker may be because it is associated with living a sedentary lifestyle. What better way to change by being physically active through the sport of running.

Last Sept. 28, Adobo Magazine held a press conference to announce Adobo Run: After Dark, its night run event, at R.O.X. [Bonifacio] High Street attended by members of the press, bloggers, and runners, and hosted by no other than the 2008 Binibining Pilpinas-International, Patricia Fernandez.

Angel Guerrero, editor-in-chief and founder of Adobo Magazine, introduced the event as a way for people to come together. “Some of you know the title of Adobo as the magazine for the advertising and brand industry, we also stand for something more: community. Effective industry is based on communities, on meeting new people and working together as one.”

Adobo Run: After Dark is made up of a 3K, 5K, and 10K route around the McKinley Hill area. The event is open for everyone to join, and accompanied by live music and drinks. Also, in line with the Halloween weekend, there will be a special category for those who run in costume, and, for the biggest contingent.

Registration fee is at Php600 per person, while companies and running groups get special group package of one free register for every 10 paid registrants.

This exciting night race is directed by Ian Alacar from Without Limits, Inc., and sponsored by Adobo Magazine, Megaworld, Hit Productions, Milo, Gatorade, Sun Marino, Sunlife, Bates 141, and Yehey!

Proceeds of the run [will] go to Formula Juan, a project to make an LPG-run public transport jeepney. For more information on Formula Juan, you can visit their website at Formula Juan.
