Strike a Pose Fun Run, 10 Dec. 2017

Strike a Pose! Share your blessings!

Running Photographers will hold a fun run on 10 Dec. 2017 at the CCP Complex, Pasay City to celebrate the art of sharing, touching lives, and making a difference. As a prelude to the Christmas season, the event aims to raise funds for the benefit of Senden Home Foundation, a home for homeless boys in Binganonan, Rizal.

Aptly called Strike a Pose Fun Run, the event will feature different photo stations along the route. Runners will have the opportunity to have their running moments captured by our photographers at every station.

To add more fun to the run, organizer Running Photographers and its sponsors will be raffling off a pair of Hoka shoes during the event. There will also be a mini-competition for best photos showing the runners’ best poses during the event. The mechanics will be posted at the Running Photographers’ Facebook page. Team Soleus Philippines will also be leading the Zumba Reggaeton.

The fun run is sponsored by Lightwater, Vitamin Boost, Toby’s Sports, and Soleus and powered by RG Events. The distance categories, registration fees, and gun start times are as follows:

Distance        Fee                             Gun start

3K                     P450                            5:50AM

5K                     P550                            5:40AM

10K                  P750                            5:30AM

The registration fee entitles each runner-registrant to a race bib and an event shirt. Likewise, finishers will also get a finisher’s medal and an assortment of freebies from the event sponsors.

Online registration opened on October 20, 2017. To register online, participants can visit https://reg.goorahna.com/#/event/strike-a-pose-fun-run-2017. On the other hand, in-store registration will open on November 9 at Toby’s Sports branches in Trinoma, Glorietta, SM Mall of Asia, and RUNNR Alabang Town Center.

With the fun run, Running Photographers aims to encourage running enthusiasts to keep an active lifestyle while at the same time share their blessings to the less fortunate. It wants to focus more on instilling into the consciousness of the participants how they can help in their own little way. As such, there will be no cash prizes but top finishers for each category will receive gift packs and giveaways from our sponsors.
