Ta-RUN-a: PhilHealth Nationwide Run

It's just 12 days from now and we'll be running our first organized run this year.  We missed out on the January  running events, probably because we needed some time to get back to form (What form? hehehe).  Either that or we simply have the holidays hangover.  

PhilHealth organized this nationwide run.  This will be a simultaneous run on different parts of the country.  We three gals will just be on the 5K category while the two guys opted for the 18K.  Here's a snaphot of the tarpaulin ad:

These are the different race venues you can go to.

The singlets are already out for distribution since last Saturday, February 02.  You can still register, if you are interested to join this nationwide activity.  And if you explore the PhilHealth official site, you'll see that this running activity is for various causes all around the country.  Some of the beneficiaries are the Philippine Children's Medical Center, Helping Hands, Healing Hearts Ministry, DSWD, Hope Worldwide Philippines, Cancer Warriors Foundation, and a whole lot more.  

Hope to see you there, running in one of this:

  2. walang Bohol noh? Maliit lang kasi ata ang population sa Bohol at maliit din ang population ng mga interested. Never pa akong nakasali sa ganitong event but I wish ma experience ko din. Gusto kong masubok ang aking endurance kung meron man har!har!har!

  3. Looks like Bohol is not included nga. I think Cebu is the nearest? Meron this coming April ---> http://www.takbo.ph/2012/11/50-50-sundown-ultra-marathon-2013/ But I think that is for ultramarathoners na hehehe

  7. Many in the hospital already leave early just so they can practice for the PhilHealth Run! I think there will be able 30+ runners from the hospital joining. Some will try out the 18K run.

  8. Its so nice that it will be happening simultaneously in differet areas. Kelan kaya ako makakasali? Im also wondering 5k ba yung pinakamaliit na distance sa mga run?

  9. This year, the PhilHealth personnel also seem to have a stronger drive to invite participants... they may even have their own quotas (we think!) or group contest! In one day, the hospital was visited by two groups!

  10. Good luck, Aileen :) I once saw a blind person joining such event that was shown in the tube. He had a guide running along with him. Inspiring kasi despite the absence of his eyesight, go pa rin sya with all the able-bodied surrounding him.

  11. For doing something you love, you just don't have room for excuses no? If there's willingness, there are ways of doing it.

  12. Sayang nga, there are only 5 of us representing our company. I wish more would be interested to join in future runs.

  13. Sanna, usually may 3K run naman. And some do have even shorter distances, for the kids mostly, to get them interested in running siguro.

  15. Good luck to you. Fun run has been a trend nowadays. It is one way of raising funds by different agencies.
    By the way, nice design for the jerseys.

  16. Knowing that we could help others through running is another wonderful benefit besides health-wise ones.

  23. The cause was great and it's good to help others. I just hope that those who will join will also be mindful enough to keep their trash or place it in a proper area.
