MetroLifetsyle Davao presents Run Fur Fun

Runners take to the streets again in Davao on September 19, this time with their furry friends.

MetroLifestyle Fitness Center and Spa, is organizing the Run Fur Fun featuring a 1.5k and 3k run for runners and their pets. There is also a 3k run for those who would rather be running alone their furry buddies.

While dubbed Run Fur Fun, the event goes beyond the fun aspect. Proceeds of the run will benefit the Rescue-A-Child Foundation Rescue-A-Child, an outreach program founded by Light in Asia Stiftung Hope in Davao City's Bucana area, with a mission to assist impoverished families in feeding their children.  MetroLifestyle gives a corresponding meal to a child for every participant in the fun run. The more runners, the more food for the poor children.

Registration fee for the 1.5k and 3k run for runners with pets is P200.00 inclusive of a t-shirt and bandawa. Runners without pets will get a t-shirt with their P150 registration fee.

Interested runners and pet-owners who would like to have a fun weekend bonding time with their four-legged pals can get in touch with MetroLifestyle Fitness Center and Spa at F. Torres corner Jacinto Extension, Davao City, tel. no. (082) 228-6182. You can also visit MetroLifestyle's Facebook page.

Running has been pretty much alive in Davao since I can remember. Locally organized and sponsored races, like the Davao Finisher's Marathon every December and the midyear Shrine Hills Challenge, have become standard fare and gather quite a crowd from Davao and nearby cities. Davao, for me, is the running center of Mindanao. Other than Milo, Adidas and a host of other institutions have organized and sponsored runs in Davao, and we can only be happy about it. As more events come, we also see more people - especially young people - joining the races. We sure hope more big time races will come. Thanks for the add, btw.
