“We already have more than 1,000 runners who registered and most of them are Sacred Hearters,” said co-organizer Joshua Pritchard.

He said runners can still sign up at the SHS-Ateneo de Cebu campus until today.

The race will feature 3K, 5K and 10K distances for men and women. There will also be a 10K division exclusive for SHS-Ateneo de Cebu alumni.

The group will also have a 400-meter run exclusively for Grades 3 to 6 pupils of SHS-Ateneo de Cebu at the school’s track oval.
