It was a pleasant surprise to receive a comment on one of my blog posts inviting me to join a run in Metro Manila. That doesn't very happen often. In fact, if my memory still serves me right, this is the first one I got.
Organized by the UP Industrial Engineering club and backed by Asia Brewery and Rexona, "LuntiRUN: Make every route greener" is a fun run for the benefit of Isko Cleans UP, a project to implement solid waste management in UP Diliman.
The run scheduled on March 27 at Filinvest Corporate City in Alabang features a 1.5k run for kids 12 years old and below, a 3k and a 6k run, and a 12k for those who feel a bit more hardcore and require a little more challenge.
Registration fees are Php300 for1.5k, Php350 for 3k, Php400 for 6k and Php450 for 12k. The LuntiRUN race kit includes your event singlet, race bib and stub for a 20% discount on regular priced New Balance items.
UP students may register at the UP IE Club Tambayan (3rd floor Melchor Hall). You can also register online at http://runnersrunner.com/luntirun.
Other registration sites are:
- Secondwind running specialty stores at 45 Malingap St. Teachers Village, QC and Ortigas Home Depot, Pasig City
- New Balance shops at Festival Mall, Alabang and Shangri-la Plaza (Saturdays and Sundays)
- Bike King Philippines at Bonifacio High Street

Registration is until March 20 only.
