So what’s really fun in fun runs? Aside from running with hundreds of people and being all sweaty and “amoy araw” while doing it, I think we can still be more creative and work on the f-u-n part. As my old friend, Wikipedia says, people usually join fun runs primarily because they want enjoyment more than winning the competition.
Resorts World Manila’s Grand Fiesta Run 2010 promises to put the fun in fun run. One of the highlights of the event is a 1K rat race that encourages runners to come in their office attires, fiesta-inspired outfits, or costumes that represent their industry minus the heels and leather shoes, of course. Runners can wear their most comfortable shoes to make up for the outrageous and wild clothes they’ll be sporting. I suggest you go dress to the nines as this will mean more chances of winning exciting prizes! The race has awards for the Best Dressed, Most Unique, Biggest Group/Company, and Wildest Costume.
And to top it all, rat race participants will also be receiving 1,000 free gaming credits in Resorts World Manila.
For more intense runners, don’t worry as the Grand Fiesta Run also features the 3K, 5K, and 10K challenge in a new route in Newport City. Runners can select their finish chute and win different prizes such as shop, movie, spa, hotel, and cruise gift certificates! Participants can also join the raffle draw and sprint their way to a 3-day/ 2-night trip for four to Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore with free tickets to Universal Studios. The lucky winners will be brought to their destination via Resorts World Manila’s private jet!
