Metro Manila · Family Fun Run
The Good Housekeeping Family Fun Run 2013 was held April 6 at the 34th corner 9th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, for the third year in a row. The annual event featured four categories: 5km for adults, 3km for adult and child pairs (kids 7-12 years old), 1km for adult and dog pairs, and 200m for kids 6 and below.
This time, it brought more fun and challenging activities for the whole family as it partners with Total Girl, K-Zone, and Good Dog. As usual for runs in the Megacity, this fun run started very early in the morning with the first start at 5 am. Starting a run this early is the only way to do it as temperatures in Manila sometimes approach 40 degrees Celsius in the summer. Running later with this heat and humidity is not a healthy idea.
The entertainment program then started at 6.30 am after all participants had returned. At the festival area, the runners and their friends and families as well as everyone who would like to join was welcome. Different kinds of food stalls could be found and other activities such as a raffle took place and let the fun and healthy activity fade out slowly.
Fun Runs take place all-out through the year and encourage healthy living and to provide for charities. If you are interested in joining them, just keep your eyes open!
