Run and help save our planet: Earth Run 2011

Earth Run 2011

We glammed it up at Glam Camp, now it's time to get our running shoes ready and run for the environment ;)
In its third year, Solar Entertainment Network’s fun run dubbed Earth Run goes nationwide with three legs to be held in Metro Manila, Davao and Cebu. After last years successful event, where over 8,000 runners took to the street to show their support for the environment, this year Earth Run looks to be even bigger and better.

Divided between the networks three banner channels, ETC, 2nd Avenue and Jack TV, now runners and nature lovers from around the country can come together and run for a good cause.

For the 3rd consecutive year, Earth Run has chosen Greenpeace as its beneficiary. Greenpeace, is an international environmental organization that acts to change attitudes and behavior, to protect and conserve the environment and to promote peace. Here in the Philippines, the organization and its supporters are focused on promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency, a nuclear-free Pilipinas, and keeping waterways clean.

Kicking off in Metro Manila, 2nd Avenue: Earth Run 2011 will be held at the Bonifacio Global City Grounds this August 28, Sunday. Runners can choose from four different distances: 3k, 5k, 10k, and 21k. All races have a registration fee of P600 except the 21k which is P650. Upon registration, participants will receive race kits that will include a timing chip, official race shirt, race bib belt and race details.

Those interested to join the Manila leg can register starting July 10 until August 21 at R.O.X. at Bonifacio High Street and Chris Sports branches located at Glorietta 3, SM City North The Annex and SM Megamall. Online registration is available at Runner’s Runner, Ad Events, and the official race Facebook page.

Each race finisher shall receive a special Earth Run sling bag, finisher’s certificate and sponsor giveaways. Trophies will be given to the Top 3 male and female finishers of each distance category courtesy of Cherifer Premium Capsule, while medals shall be given out to all finishers of the 21k race.

For those living in Davao and Cebu, they can look forward to Jack TV: Earth Run 2011 on October 9, Sunday and ETC: Earth Run 2011 happening on December 11, Sunday respectively.
This is your chance to take part in standing up for Mother Nature not to mention an enjoyable way to stay fit and healthy. Starting July 10, sign up and be one of the thousands to join Solar Entertainment Network’s Earth Run 2011.
