THE SAME group that introduced the Color Manila Run series will take the game up a notch with the staging of the Watsons Color Manila Challenge on April 19, 2015 (Sunday) at the SM Mall of Asia grounds in Pasay City starting at 4:00 AM. This time, the runners will not only try to avoid the bursts of colored powder along the way but will also need to go through a series of obstacles designed to challenge one’s physical and mental limits.
Although no official announcement has been made, the obstacles are expected to make the participants crawl, climb, jump and slide. Making these obstacles a bit tougher will be the colored powders wantonly discharged like there was no tomorrow.
Available distance categories are 10, five and three kilometers on MOA’s relatively flat pavement. Registration fee is a flat PHP 850.00 for all distances.
The race kit will consist of a singlet, race bib, colored powder packet and sports sunglasses with Color Manila strap. Upon completion of the race, the runners will be rewarded with dog tags.
Online registration using PayPal, credit cards and debit cards is ongoing at www.colormanilarun.com. Runners may also purchase prepaid cards at all SM Tickets outlets nationwide or at Toby’s in Glorietta and Runnr stores in Bonifacio High Street, Trinoma and Alabang Town Center (prepaid users will still have to input their details at the said website).
Race kit claiming will be from April 9 to 11, 2015 at the MOA. The booth will be open from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
Expect a grand party after the race as the streets and skies of MOA will be enveloped in a cloud of colors. This surely another healthy weekend bonding activity for friends and family so register now before supplies lasts!
