Celebrating its 10th year in military service, the Philippine Military Academy Mandarangan Class of 2003 will be slating their first ever Run for a Cause in Baguio City.
Dubbed as “Takbo! Sagipin ang Kalikasan”, one of PMA’s host classes for next year’s alumni homecoming engages in a bold attempt to gather runners in a 3K, 5K and 10K and 21K half marathon while fulfilling their three-pronged cause: to plant trees, return a favor to their alma mater and provide assistance to an ailing “mistah”.
The class proposes to plant coffee seedlings in PMA, as part of its advocacy to promote a lush environment. Added to this, “the Mandarangans deemed that propagating trees for coffee production will be a possible livelihood program for individuals assigned by the Academy to take care of the trees”.
Another chunk of the proceeds shall be donated to the PMA cadets in the form of sports equipment as their show of gratitude to the Academy for training them into becoming military officers.
The run was also conceptualized to help LT Frederick Emil Tapawan, who has been battling with tonsillar cancer for more than two years now. Tapawan who is fondly called as “Tappy” by his classmates in PMA 2003, has been a valiant officer of the Philippine Navy before he was diagnosed with cancer. Tappy has been knocking onto generous hearts to sustain his treatment as he researches on ways to conquer the illness to prove that he can win this fight.

Maganda ‘to ah!

thank you for your help!
registration until 18 January or until supply last, you can contact the organizer for further details..
sana magkarun kayo ng at least one registration dito sa manila para sa mga gustong sumali.
I hope that there’ll be a registration here in Manila and also a shuttle. Kahit na add-on na lang sa reg fee. I think na madaming gusto sumali from Manila.
I agree. Maganda po na may reg site sa Manila para mas maraming Manila runners na maka-join. And shuttle na rin para sabay-sabay ang punta. One month na lang kasi halos at wala ng time mag-ipon ng husto for booking in hotels/transients. At least pag may shuttle e sigurado na kaming makakabalik din agad kami without the hassle of securing tickets sa mga bus stations. Siguro puwedeng kahit late afternoon na umalis yung shuttle from Baguio pabalik ng Manila para may time pa mag-ikot at bumili ng souvenirs. :)
WOW ganda ng shirt nila. kaya lang ang layo..
saan po ang route ng 21k?
ask ko po sana kung kailan po deadline ng registration?
Maui, loakan rd. U turn at PMA to southdrive to burnham park
Limited slot for 21K, register as early as possible,,see you all
@Wakachi tama..gusto ko rin sasali …nice to experience there in baguio…
Yung gusto sasali na taga manila usap usap tayu.. kung ok lng sa inyo.. sabay sa bus para masaya..
Loakan road ba? i miss that road, nice rolling route…I will join this event for sure.
4 kaming manggagaling sa Manila (actually Sta. Rosa, Laguna pa). Pero we are planning to leave friday pa lang para makapag-ikot na rin sa Baguio and buy souvenirs. :)
Yung gustong makisabay at naghahanap din ng matutuluyan e you can join us para mas makamura sa accomodation. :)
gusto ko mag join d2 kaso sa baguio ka rin dapat mag pareg, dapat sana meron ding reg dito sa manila para isang akyatan na lang sa baguio,,, maganda kasi tumakbo d2 dahil meron pataas at pababang lugar na tatakbuhan mo,,, wala naman akong kakilala jan sa baguio para makituloy pansamantala,,,
You can text the organiser si Mike Cruz to reg. You’ll just give him your details then deposit sa bank account nila which he’ll give you once you text him. Ganun ginawa ko for me at sa 3 ko pang makakasama. Tapos pick-up mo na lang race kit mo on the day itself.
Sa matutuluyan naman, you can join us kung gusto mo. :)
sana nga may manila registration area. sayang! our group would love to join this event sana may round 2. Im hoping for a great turn out ng participants dito. Nice tech shirt design and race singlet too!
We have registration site at LABADA Jo, Pandacan Manila near Chevrolet.
If your too far from that area contact me at 0906-228-8513 to assist you in registration. just like sir JAybee said!
Race Route will be announce next week…
