  1. Hoping by that time mabawasan na ang trabaho tuwing weekend. matagal-tagal na rin di nakasali ng mga runs na may patutunguhan such as this.

    I’ll talk to my bugoy, sasali kami nito.

  2. Hi Spartan Runner. Thank you for your comment. This run is certified for an environmental cause kasi… Mangrove trees will be planted on May 22 (you can join us during the tree planting itself), plus ALL PROCEEDS of this run will benefit ALL co-organizing environmental NGOs of the Earth Day 2012 Festival. We are only targeting 1,000 Runners.
