This year, the funds will go to the initial rehabilitation of Estero de San Miguel, one of the five networks of esteros behind Malacañang.
In 2010, the fun run registered a record-high 116,086 runners. This year, the organizers will use radio frequency identification tags attached to the race bib to automatically count the runners as they step on the start and finish lines.
The run will have three categories. The 3K starting line will be at Roxas Boulevard cor. V. Sotto, 5K at Roxas Boulevard cor. Pedro Gil, and the 10K at Ocean Drive cor. Bayshore Avenue, all ending at the same finish line—the giant globe in front of the SM Mall of Asia.
A ceremonial 21-kilometer run, not open to the public, will be participated in by KBPIP sponsors and partners.
