New Balance race to benefit Typhoon Sendong victims

RunClub Davao announced recently that aside from the Agdao-based beneficiary, they will also extend help to the Sendong victims through the Philippine Red Cross.

Monchit Mackay of RunClub Davao, in a story posted at Davao Scoop Chapter's Facebook Page, said that “We want to extend help to the severely affected people in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan. So, we decided to extend a hand to them as a second beneficiary of the run.”

The New Balance RunClub Challenge 2012 announced late last year that they will help the elderly indigent people of an Agdao-based organization.

The footrace set on January 15, 2012 features the twelve-kilometer (12K) and 5.5K categories and will start at the Pryce Business Park going to Quirino Ave. and McArthur Highway towards Matina.

The 12K champion will receive RunClub Gift Certificates worth P6,000 while the runner-up will get P4,000 worth of gift certificates. The next three finishers will go home with P3,000, P2,000 and P1,000 worth of RunClub Gift Certificates.

The top three 5.5K finishers will claim RunClub Gift Certificates worth P5,000, P3,000 and P2, 000. Registration is on-going at RunClub Davao at Plaza del Carmen Loyola St., Barrio Obrero.

Fees are P500 for 12K and P420 for 5.5k inclusive of a New Balance performance singlet, a race bib, a Strider shoe tag and light breakfast. Plus 20% discounts on all New Balance products at RunClub until February 15 and a chance to win in the raffle draw during the awarding ceremony.
