Around 6,000 runners are expected to join ScholaRUN Eat & Run of the American Chamber (AmCham) Foundation Philippines happening on March 1 at the SM By the Bay, Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City.

AmCham Foundation has been embarking this charity fun run for nine consecutive years with its main advocacy on education. The Foundation also feels a debt of gratitude to its member companies and the general public for their unwavering support to help educate the underprivileged yet deserving Filipino youth.

The ScholaRUN Eat & Run offers the following race categories and corresponding race fees: 200-meter dash (P 500), 3 KM (P 650), 5 KM (P 700), 10 KM (P 750), and 21 KM (P 1,100). Each race kit includes a race shirt, race bib, loot bag, and medal.

Like the previous year’s ScholaRUN Eat and Run, runners will be treated to several American food staples such as doughnuts, pizza, and burgers served along the running course. The fun run event includes a 21-KM distance category allowing more participants to run a longer distance.

AmCham member companies can now send their registration forms to secure race kits. Meanwhile, onsite registration has opened on January 6 at select Chris Sports outlets at SM Mall of Asia, SM North EDSA, Glorietta, SM Megamall, and Market! Market! You can also register online at Goorahna .

La Filipina Gives Hope to Filipino Athletes with its First Power Up Run

From the maker of the only corned pork in the Philippines, La Filipina, brings its first-ever fun run titled Power Up Run on 23 February 2020 at Fort Santiago in Intramuros, Manila. 

The Power Up Run offers various distances from 1.5 KM (P 500), 3 KM (P 550), 5 KM (P 650) to 10 KM (P760).  Corporate promo such as 10 + 1 and student discounts are also available. All runners will get a singlet, race bib, finisher’s medal, and La Filipina loot bag.

Coming from the brand’s tagline Power Up with La Filipina,Power Up Run encourages everyone to start their day right by eating protein-rich breakfast like La Filipina’s Corned Pork or Luncheon Meat. These meals bring power to performance whether doing a sport or any regular activity.

True to its name, the local brand of luncheon meat and pasta products will take you to the historical landmarks of Fort Santiago and Intramuros not only to make it more interesting to runners but also a unique way of promoting the country’s history and culture. This fun run is in partnership with the Department of Tourism and Intramuros Administration.

Apart from promoting tourism, history, health, and fitness, the fun run’s goal is to help aspiring Filipino athletes and teams to represent the country but could not do so due to insufficient financial support; hence, the proceeds from this project will aid selected athletes to continue training in their chosen sport. 

At present, La Filipina is supporting teams in various sports such as volleyball, basketball, sepak takraw, and dragon boat including young athletes from public schools of Manila, Valenzuela, and Quezon City.
