MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines hopes to set another world record through the Pasig River Run campaign this year.
Organizers are hoping that at least 150,000 runners will join and break the record set by the 10.10.10 Pasig River Run last year.
ABS-CBN Foundation managing director Gina Lopez, the prime mover behind the Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig (KBPIP) clean-up campaign, said they want to break the record of 116,000 runners.
During last year’s eco-footrace, the official count of runners who made it through the finish line was pegged at 116,086. This broke the 110,000 record previously held by the 1986 “Bay to Breakers” run in San Francisco, USA.
The feat garnered the Philippines a certification from the Guinness World Records for the most number of participants in a racing event.
Lopez is confident that by improving how the event will be organized this year, they can reach their goal of 150,000 runners.
