Race and explore in Run BGC 2012
Run BGC, Bonifacio Global City’s (BGC) annual running event, is all set to make footrace buffs challenge themselves anew in a race to cross BGC’s epic finish line.
This year’s Run BGC has four categories, offered with male and female classifications: 500m Kiddie Race, 5K Special Route with Fun Tasks, 10K, and 15K. The race for children is sub-divided into 5-8 years old and 9-12 years old categories.
In a race dubbed, “Ready, Set, Explore!”, runners will enjoy a route that will take them to explore some of BGC’s top attractions – like the interactive parks, playfield, and The Mind Museum. Making it more memorable are the fun challenges along the way. The 5K category has this “explore” route with pit stops that require runners to complete various tasks required to finish the race.
Cash prizes, trophies, exciting premium product packs, and gift certificates await the top three placers of each category. All race finishers will receive a loaded finisher’s kit and the competition’s biggest contingent will get a special award.
But more than that, all finishers, in all distance categories, will qualify to join a raffle draw with a grand prize of Asian cruise for 2 persons courtesy of High Street South. The cruise will take the lucky BGC runner to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia via Singapore before heading to Phuket, Thailand, then back to Singapore. Prize is convertible to P150, 000.00 cash but non-transferable.
Run BGC Ready, Set, Explore! is on November 25, Sunday at 4am. All categories start at 34th Ave., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig (near Mercato Centrale).
