Wow, it’s the fourth quarter of the year already! It’s interesting that some of the more interesting races are held this quarter, and here are some that I think are worth joining for October to mid-November:
- Ignit10n (Saturday, October 08, 2011)
A unique “The Amazing Race” type of race for groups of four. This is for the benefit of the UP IE Club Scholarship Fund. You still have until tomorrow to register.
- Nike We Run Manila (Saturday, October 15, 2011)
The first official Nike running event in Manila with an exclusive 10K distance. It’s a Saturday afternoon run with a party afterwards. Registration is closed.
- adidas King of the Road (October 23, 2011)
The first ever regional championship of adidas King of the Road Southeast Asia. Registration is extended until October 08, 2011 in adidas Trinoma and Greenbelt 3 only.
- Adobo Run (Saturday, October 29, 2011)
The return of a Saturday Halloween night fun run! Time to bring out those costumes! Registration is now open!
- The 500 Smile Run Manila (November 06, 2011)
Operation Smile’s kick-off event for their 30th Anniversary to help generate funds for their programs throughout the country. Registration is now open!
- Run United 3 (November 13, 2011)
The final leg of the RunRio Trilogy featuring a rare 32K. Registration is open online and starts October 08, 2011 in stores.
- Rain4Africa: A Lifeline to Africa Run (November 13, 2011)*
If you’re from the southern areas of Metro Manila and don’t want to go far for a race for a cause, you may want to look at this one instead. Registration is now open!
- Men’s Health Urbanathlon (November 13, 2011)*
If you’re not contented with simply running, you may challenge yourself with the obstacles Urbanathlon is known for. Registration is until October 16, 2011.
I made this short list for those who can’t afford every race that comes their way. My first consideration is the cause that it supports, then the uniqueness of the race itself. As per November 13, it’s a headache when it comes to picking the “perfect” event. I really hate it when good races fall on the same date!
