Another night run in Davao: GMA-Energizer Night Race

Runners will troop to the streets of Davao City again on the evening of April 16 for another post-sundown event, the Energizer Night Race.

Presented by GMA and Energizer, the Energizer Night Race will feature 3K, 5K, and 10K race distances.

Cash prices will be awarded for the top three male and female finishers of each race distance. The top finisher will take home P10,000 while the 2nd and 3rd placers will get P7,000 and P5,000 respectively.

Special prizes would also be awarded to the youngest runner, oldest runner, biggest contingent, and best in jazzed up singlet or costume.

Registration fee is P450 which entitles the participant to a free Energizer 3 LED headlamp worth P500, a dri-fit singlet, & and Energizer cap and Schick razor to be given before the race. Proceeds will go to the GMA Kapuso Foundation.

Registration sites are GMA TV Station at Shrine Hills, RunClub Davao, Holiday Gym and Spa, Nike at SM City Davao and Sports Town at Gaisano Mall.

In addition to the thrill of a night run and the good feeling that comes from being able to donate to a worthy cause while doing what they love to do most, runners would also be treated to celebrity sightings galore as 5 Kapuso stars will join them in the run. While it may not be everybody's cup of tea, most would definitely welcome the opportunity of being able to run side by side with these celebrities and the postrace photo opportunity.

A postrace concert dubbed Kapuso Night has also been scheduled at 10pm.

Assembly is at 6:30 pm on April 16 at the SM City Davao parking area C with Kapuso stars and Holiday Gym trainors leading the warm up exercises.

Gunstart for all race categories will be at 8 pm.
