Run! Jump! Make Noise! on Feb. 26!

The Don Bosco group of schools have been part of the landscape of Philippine education since the 1950’s. Their very strong advocacy for the youth is what makes the school stand-out and stand still after 60 years.
In celebrating the Salesians presence in the Philippines and all the good they have seeded, there will be a simultaneous Fun Run in six (6) areas :
  • Quirino Grandstand, Manila
  • Nuvali, Laguna
  • Clark, Pampanga
  • San Jose, Nueva Ecija
  • Naga City
  • Legazpi City
Gunstart will also be simultaneous at 6:00AM on February 26, 2012. The Fun Run, dubbed from Don Bosco’s famous adage, “Run, Jump, Make Noise: Celebrating 60 Years of Don Bosco’s Presence in the Philippines” is a fundraising activity to create a trust fund for the eight (8)Don Bosco Technical -Vocational Education and Training (TVET) centers.
The TVET centres are the main advocacy of the Don Bosco schools. It trains and forms the marginalized youth into able, upstanding citizens and allows them to be in the workforce of the technically-skilled. Their employability rate is in the 90 percentile with car manufacturers, technical offices, and more. On top of free education for these out of school youths, Don Bosco also provides their basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, as well as hospital care when need be. Forming a boy into an upstanding adult is not easy, nor is it inexpensive. But it is an advocacy worth pursuing for it is essentially an advocacy for life and in this case… of lives.

Something New @ Run United 2012!

What do we expect for this year's Run United series?

For RU1, your race kit comes with -

Race belt

2. You'll get the 1st piece of the medal puzzle

3. Point to point Start and Finish

RunRio/Unilab Active Health will be providing a SHUTTLE SERVICE for 21km participants. The service will have the SM Mall of Asia as its pick-up point and will bring the 21km runners to the 21km starting line at the BGC.

Why SM Mall of Asia as pick-up point? The race owners and organizers considers those 21km runners who may have other members of the family who will be running a shorter distance so SM Mall of Asia is a more feasible originating point. Besides, there are more available parking areas there than in BGC.
More details and mechanics for the Shuttle Service will be posted once available.

Baggage Services will be available at the BGC race area in the form of ROVING BAGGAGE SERVICE VANS which will be on standby prior to race start and will move to the SM Mall of Asia to bring these checked-in baggages to the designated Baggage Claim Areas.
