Run for the Pasig River: 25K River Warrior Run

Run for the Pasig River is an annual advocacy run that serves as a fundraising and information campaign for the ongoing rehabilitation of several esteros. 

Following the success of last year’s 11.20.2011 Run for the Pasig River, ABS-CBN Foundation’s Kapit Bisig para sa Ilog Pasig will be staging its fourth advocacy run with the “09.30.2012 Run for the Pasig River” on September 30, 2012. This year’s run will bring to fore the clamor for cleaner rivers and esteros in Metro Manila, while the funds raised will be used to rehabilitate the waterways of Quezon City-San Juan-Mandaluyong.

There will be three major event categories for the advocacy run: a 15K Bike Ride with 
4:00AM gunstart; 15K Commonwealth Challenge Run with 4:10AM gunstart; and 5K 
Morning Madness Run with 6:00AM gunstart. This time, there will be one starting line in 
the Quezon City Memorial Circle (QCMC) going straight to Commonwealth Avenue 
then back again to QCMC for the finish.

ABS-CBN Foundation’s Kapit Bisig para sa Ilog Pasig have organized three successful runs for the Pasig River. The 2009 Philippine International Marathon: A Run for the Pasig River, which had an estimated 23,000 participants, helped fund the initial phase of rehabilitation of Estero de Paco. The 10.10.10 Run for the Pasig River, which broke the Guinness World Record for the “most participants in a racing event,” had 116,087 runners which helped rehabilitate the second phase of Estero de Paco clean-up. Last year’s 11.20.2011 Run for the Pasig River, which had 86,547 runners, is helping rehabilitate Estero de San Miguel and four other esteros behind the MalacaƱang Palace.
