Another big running event takes place in Davao City this Sunday from running specialty store RunClub, this time in partnership with the new Nike Athletic Club flagship store at Abreeza Ayala Mall.
Some 1,700 registered participants are running the 4K-8K-16K Davao City Run which starts and ends at the newly opened Abreeza Mall.
Monchit Mackay of RunClub said more runners would have wanted to join the run and apologized to those who were not accommodated.
"It is not our desire to hold a run of more than 1,500 runners as we want to make it organized, safe and fun filled. In fact, we reached our ceiling as early as last Saturday but tried to accommodate a few more slots for our RunClub friends," he said.
As in previous runs organized by RunClub, Kenneth Sai and Vantage Sports have been tapped to ensure a safe and well-organized run this Sunday.
The event will benefit the Padre Pio's Home for Children, a Catholic institution for the orphaned and abandoned children at Tugbok Proper, Davao City.
