Four Channels, Four Lifestyles, Four Races: FIC Run

Fox International Channels (FIC) provides a bit of each TV channel’s flavor and a whole lot of fun in the FIC Fun Run on March 25, 2012 at the Bonifacio Global City.  Participants can play dress up, hobnob with celebrities and support a worthy cause.

The event gives runners the opportunity to choose and participate in any of the four races organized by FIC featuring different lifestyle themes representing its four key channels. It will have four race categories that include an advocacy marathon aimed at raising funds to support the various projects of partner non-government organizations (NGOs).

Costumes...hmmmm... 😀

Come dressed in your favorite character and run alongside fellow enthusiasts and sponsor mascots in the 500m Fox Costume Run.  Fifty runners in costume will compete and make a dash for the finish line.  Limited edition Fox DVD will be raffled off after the race.

3K Shirt

Star Movies rolls out the red carpet for movie aficionados in the 3K Star Movies Lifestyle Run where writers, film producers and movie directors are expected to show their support to the event. For a bit of a movie trivia and a tad of inspiration, popular quotes from movie characters will be setup along the course.  A home entertainment system is up for grabs in the raffle draw.

5K Shirt

Run with panache – this is the battle cry of lovers of fashion and fitness when they run the 5K Star World Lifestyle Run featuring a red carpet along the route to mimic the paparazzi scene.  Brush elbows with models, celebrities and other prominent personalities expected to show up in their running shoes.  If you’re feeling lucky, you might just bring home gift certificates for a shopping spree at the end of the race.

10K Shirt

Have fun while reaching out to others in the 10K National Geographic Run for a Cause.  The race is in partnership with 10 select non-government organizations and seeks to raise awareness for their respective advocacies.  Among the partner NGOs are Physicians for Peace, ICANSERVE Foundation, Virlanie, Greenpeace, Philippine Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, World Vision and Gawad Kalinga.  The first 500 registrants will compete in the name of their advocacy.

The FIC Run really brings back the fun in a fun run with different themes for each leg and a bit intimate setting with very limited slots.  There are also different items to be raffled off in each category after the race.  Did you notice the great looking shirts that come with each registration?  Well, those are original shirts by Penshoppe!  To be honest I picked my distance of choice by the shirt design that I loved the most!  Regardless whether you’re in it for the race, the advocacies, the raffle, or the shirt, I suggest you register as soon as possible because the slots are really small for each leg.  Note that as of press time, the shirts are not yet available but you’d be given a claim stub for a later distribution date.

    How odd… I registered online, got a confirmation code on March 13 but haven’t received my race kit yet… any idea how to contact the organizers other than the office that’s open US Pacific Time?
