UPAA Bagong Sigla Fun Run – March 24, 2013


The 100th Anniversary celebration of University of the Philippines Alumni Association, banners by the theme “Bagong Siglo. Bagong Sigla.” takes off on a rousing start on March 24, 2013, Palm Sunday, with an activity-filled “Family Fiesta.”

The early morning running event will be followed at 9:00AM by a tennis tournament organized by the UP Alumni Tennis Association. In and around And Bahay ng Alumni, visiting alumni and their family members can enjoy and/or win prizes in various fiesta and parlor games, such as palo sebo, buko sebo, piñata, pabitin, “pin the donkey’s tail,” scrabble, checkers, dama, sungka, and others.

Brass bands will parade in the streets adjoining the Academic Oval. Fiesta booths offering food and beverages, souvenir items, or fair-style games and prizes will be set up by UP Varsity teams and others around Ang Bahay.

From 1:00-6:00PM, the “Bagong Siglo Bingo” will be held in the main hall of Ang Bahay ng Alumni. Bingo cards will be available for only P200 apiece. Prizes at stake are gadgets and home appliances.

  2. @neutron:

    It will go around the oval, but it will also pass by other scenic routes sa UP. The oval is very important because dun makikita ang Carillon Bell Tower at ang Oblation which are symbols of UP. Yes, the shirt material is dri-fit.

  3. kakaasar naman!!! bakit nagkakasabay ung mga magagandang patakbo! hanggang dito pa naman b may competition? d b pedeng mag-usap-usap kayong mga organizer? sayang larong-pinoy pa naman ito!!! gud luk s inyo! mejo malayo kasi s makati?

  4. @neutron

    Wala namang pong definite na cut-off times but the awarding will start at 7:30am. By that time, most runners should be done because other activities such as the tennis tournament and Filipino games will start at around 9:00am.


    Hindi naman po siguro magagalit si vice, alumni din naman po siya nang UP and this event is the centennial celebration of the alumni, every 100 years lang po ito magaganap. :)

  5. hahaha… parang mas okay d2 tumakbo! hindi crowded, nice shirt, may medal din, fun daming palaro!

    @without limits – pwede po bang sumali sa mga games? pambata lang po mga games or kht sino pwede sumali? tnx.

  6. @jer:

    We will be working with the UP community to make the route so pwede naman pong iiwas sa dadaanan nang salubong.


    Meron po kaming games na pambata pero meron ding pwede ang matatanda.


    Salamat po sa pag-register. Commemorative shirt claiming will be on March 1, 2013.

  7. @Hardkulangot

    Naku sir, binigay po sa inyo ang sample. Nagkamali po yung store personnel sa Chris Sports MOA. Pang-sizing po kasi yan. Sa March 1 pa po talaga ang claiming. Pero dahil nasa inyo na po, okay lang at least kayo ang unang nakatanggap nang shirt.

  8. @withoutlimits

    Ah ganon po ba? Pero di ko na po kasalanan yon,
    Pabor para sa akin ang pagkakamali nya
    Para di na hassle pa uli kapag kukunin pa ang shirt sa
    March 1,,, nasuot ko na po nung wed dahil nag jogging po ako
    Dami nga pong gustong umarbor ng shirt dahil
    maganda raw ang kumbinasyon ng kulay
    At ang pagkakagawa ng shirt,
    Sorry sila,,,

  9. @glenn edward,

    The funrun is open to all, even non-UP alumni.


    Okay lang po, we might release the first batch of the shirts on an earlier date din.


    Meron po silang booth ma’am.

  13. Already registered! I like the shirt because it is dryfit. I felt like a PEPSQUAD wearing the commemorative shirt. I registered because my friends from UP invited me. But I got confused with the date.

    @jer salubong? easter sunday? Is this event on the 24th or the 31st?

  14. @joson gosingtian:

    The start and finish line is in front of the Carillon bell tower, the Start and finish arc
    has already been set up at the area since yesterday.


    24th po, it’s Palm Sunday.

    Pwede pa pong humabol sa on-site registration tomorrow at 4am. Please look for the on-site/redemption booth.

    Those registered on the run can join the Filipino games for free, just present your bib no. to get a stub for the games at the redemption booth. Sa mga hindi po tumakbo, the game stubs for Filipino games are only Php20 each. We have prepared games such as Bunong Braso, Palo Sebo, Buko Sebo (Team), Sack Race, Pabitin (kids only), and Pukpok Palayok (kids only). There will also be board games (dama, chess, checkers, sungka). These games will be facilitated by the UP CHK.
