Friday, February 14, 2014
INTERESTED runners will only have until today, February 15, to sign up for the 1K@Amway Davao Fun Run that will hit the road in an out-and-back course from Tulip Drive, Quimpo Boulevard in Matina on Sunday, February 16.
Registration forms are available at Amway Davao along Tulip Drive, Quimpo Boulevard in Matina. Fee is P200 for 8K, 5K and 1K categories inclusive of shirt, race bib and raffle stub.
Raffle items include P10,000 worth of Amway products and iPod Nano. Samples of Amway products will also be available for all finishers on race day.
Runners will also get to share a portion of their registration to Amway's One By One Campaign for Children in partnership with the Department of Education's adopt-a-school program.
The Lacson Elementary School will again receive reading books and other school supplies during awarding rites. The same school was recipient of last year's event.
The top three finishers of each category will receive gold, silver and bronze medals as well as gift packs.
Organizers added the male and female 8K events in celebration of Amway's power brand the Nutrilite's 80th anniversary. The 1K and 5K divisions were already introduced in the inaugural edition last year.
Participants may also sign up for an Amway membership without paying any membership fee.
The 1K@Amway campaign, meanwhile, means that one can start a direct selling business for only P1,000. But a registered runner doesn't have to pay extra to avail of an Amway membership since it will be for free.
Gun times are set at 5:50 a.m. for 8K, 6 a.m. for 5K and 6:10 a.m. for 1K in the run managed by Vantage Sports Promotions under Kenneth Sai. (MLSA)
