GiG Run 09

Green Is Good!  Run for the reforestation of Ipo Watershed

The UP Mountaineers, through its Environment Committee and the Padyak Foundation presents: The 2009 GiG Run.  A run to raise awareness on the need to protect the Ipo Watershed.

Gig Run 09

The run is expected to jump start the growing consciousness of protecting the Ipo Watershed that, together with Angat Watershed, supply 97 percent of Metro Manila’s fresh water.  The watershed is currently experiencing heavy environment pressure as population encroach the area.  Seventy percent of the watershed is heavily deforested thus causing silt deposits on the Angat River that carries water to the Ipo Dam.

The proceeds of the race will be utilized for the continuing program of the UP Mountaineers to bring back the lush green environment that once was the Ipo Watershed.

    Clarification re June 28 schedule for the GIGRUN 2009.

    We would like to clarify to all interested to participate in the GIG Run (and also those who have already registered) that there will be no other race during the schedule of the GIG Run (6:00-11:00AM, JUNE 28). Vice Chancellor Gregorio already stated that only one race per time frame will be allowed, and we have the permit for the schedule indicated above.

    If you have questions or other inquiries, you may email them at join@thegigrun.org, or private message/post through the Facebook and Multiply accounts.

    Let’s run for the forest, Run!
