Rock ‘n’ Roll run June 19 in Manila
The Walled City of Intramuros and the National Museum will be highlighted as backdrops to a sporting event for the first time on June 19 when the Asics Rock “n” Roll Running Series is flagged off with thousands already signed up in four categories.
Trophies in the 42K, 21K, 10K and 5K events will be up for grabs, before a concert party is held in the evening, the very thing that makes the event unique.
Participants will be treated to music as they run through the streets of Manila, which will be celebrating its 450th founding anniversary.
Several slots are still open with fees pegged at P950 for 5K, P1,850 for 10K, P2,450 for half-marathon and P2,650 for the 42K run. For the Remix Challenge, rates are P3,600 for marathon 5K, P4,100 for marathon 10K, P3,800 for half-marathon 5K and P3,400 for half-marathon 10K.
The world’s largest running series will also pass through Manila City Hall, the Kartilya ng Katipunan, the Jones Bridge and Chinatown in Binondo.
