This event is a fundraising project in support of the Archdiocese of Manila’s preparatory activities for the upcoming World Youth Day, which is said to be Pope John Paul II’s favorite event, happening in Madrid, Spain on August 10-24, 2011 with the theme, “Stand firm in faith… Do all your work in love” (1 Cor. 16:13-14); as well as various formation programs that they have prepared for young people this year.  It is hoped to raise enough funds to be able to send at least 20 committed and dependable youth delegates to Madrid who will in turn echo their experiences and learnings to the youth in the Archdiocese.

There are at least three major events that the Church has lined up for the youth this year–2011 as the Year of the Youth, World Youth Day 2011, and beatification of Pope John Paul II.


Singlet is included with registration but claiming begins on April 25, 2011 at R.O.X.  You may also claim it on in the activity area on race day as early as 2:30AM.



Activity area is in front of the CCP Ferry Terminal, Pedro Bukaneg Street, between Harbour Square and Folk Arts Theater.  Assembly time is at 4:30AM.  Gun start is as follows:

  • 10K: 5:30AM
  • 5K: 5:35AM
  • 3K: 5:45AM

Hydration stations serving water and sports drinks are stationed every 1K along the route and also at the Finish line.

Top three (men and women) for each category will receive cash prizes.

This race is organized by Without Limits in collaboration with LeadPack, with Ian Alacar as its Race Director.

“We believe that the above events are of great value to our nation in that they envision the formation of our young people, molding them to become more responsible and mature members of society.  Our young are our assets as well as our responsibility.  Let us invest in them by empowering them through proper training and, values and personality programs.  Let us support them by making this event – World Youth Day Fun Run – a success.” — Rev. Fr. Jade Licuanan, Commissioner, Archdiocesan Commission on Youth / Rev. Fr. Antonio B. Navarrete, Jr., Director, Archdiocese of Manila Biblical Apostolate
