Looking for a different race venue within the Metro? How about an afternoon run? Them this is for you! Introducing CAMP RUN- Train/Race/Serve.
What is CAMP RUN?
The Camp Run Series is composed of several running events happening throughout the year at Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City. The series will feature a military or boot camp theme, a unique race format, and a novel route for the runners. It will also be tailored to encourage continuous participation rather than competitiveness, and will ultimately be developed to become a nationwide program or template.
The races will have 5 kilometers and 10 kilometers distances. Participants can expect race grounds that are not only secure, but smog and smoke-free as the events will be held inside Camp Aguinaldo which has less traffic movement than the regular thoroughfares and roads of usual running routes. Aside from needed facilities such as ample water stations and accurate kilometer and directional markings, the Camp Run events will also provide free training clinics and a designated family and finishers’ activity area.
In order to encourage participants to attend all events of the Camp Run Series, eXtribe also created the “VeteRan” system. This system will recognize runners who went to all of the races under the Camp Run series, and they will receive a special race bib, event shirt, and a commemorative dog tag and medal. Runners can also use the series as preparatory training for the Subic International Marathon, which will be held early 2012.
CAMP RUN’s Beneficiaries
The various partner foundations that will benefit from the Camp Run Series are the following: Adopt-A-School Program of DepEd, E-media Project of ABS-CBN Foundation, HERO Foundation Inc., and 57-75 Movement: Reverse the Education Crisis (a beneficiary of the iamninoy-iamcory runners). In partnership with Discovery Suites, Businessworld, Total Fitness Magazine, Pinoy Fitness, OneSport, DOLE, Nova Multigrain Cookies, Aero Med, Nathan, ROX and Chris Sports. eXtribe’s campaign will not just be anchored on a single event, but will be sustained throughout the year with the lined up series of races.
