Hunat Sugbo 2 attracts 2,000 runners-A A +A
Friday, June 22, 2012
RUNNERS will be treated to another half-marathon tomorrow in the Hunat Sugbo 2 Dagan Para ni Maning at The Terraces Ayala.
The 21K is the additional distance from last year’s 5K and 15K categories. The event is a memorial run for the late hotel president Manuel Ting whose death anniversary is commemorated today.
“It will still be inspired with the same concept for our late president but this will be different because we included a half-marathon and we made sure it will cater to the entire family with the different categories,” said Barbie Patino of Parklane.
Even if another half-marathon was held last weekend, a huge number of 600 runners still signed up for the Hunat event.
The runners also exceeded the organizers’ expected number of participants as they closed yesterday with 2,100 runners, an increase from last year’s 1,600.
The event also features the 12K, 6K and 3K distances.
