The biggest race to be staged in the first quarter of the year - the Globe Run for Home 2011 - hits the road at the crack of dawn on March 27, 2011 with a sea of humanity expected to fill the Bonifacio Global City, each eager not only to breast the tape but to take part in an endeavor that will benefit the less fortunate.
With the registry books already filling up after the online registration via www.globe.com.ph/run which started in February 21, 2011, the Globe Run for Home 2011 is once again starting to fulfill its promise that racing in a fun-filled environment could be transformed into a more fulfilling event - both in body and heart.
Each participant pays a registration fee with a modest amount going to the various partner - institutions for the race. Compared to the previous two races, Globe Run for Home 2011 will now have 4 beneficiaries. They are Gawad Kalinga, Habitat for Humanity, Haribon Foundation and Virlanie Foundation.
Registration fees are pegged at
- P650 for 3k
- P750 for 5k
- P850 for 10k
- P950 for 15k
- P1,050 for 21k.
The registration fee entitles runners to their race singlets available in various sizes, D-tag race chip, race bib number, runpix analysis, downloadable photos and finisher's medal (21k category). And just like in its past two stagings, the Globe Run for Home 2011 will again use singles made of 100 percent recycled PET plastic bottles. No other running event in the country has done that, thus adding the environment as fifth beneficiary.
The people behind the biggest charity fun run of the year
Since running has become a bonding activity among officemates, friends, and barkadas, group runners are also encouraged to join - with a special treat. For groups of four running in the same category, they will be allowed to bring in a fifth member for free.
Apart from the online registration at www.globe.com.ph/run, participants could also register and pay through cash at the Run for Home 2011 physical registration booth at the 4th floor Cinema Lobby of Greenbelt 3 in Makati City that opened from February 20 to March 20, 2011. Race kits of runners paying in credit card will be delivered to their respective addresses while those paying in cash may claim their race kits at the on-site registration booth from 12 noon to 8 pm.
Gun start for the race categories are as follows:
- 5:00am for the 21k
- 5:15am for the 15k
- 5:30am for the 10k
- 5:45am for the 5k
- 6:00am for the 3k
