THE DARKNESS will be replaced with a cloud of vibrant colors as Brother Philippines presents the “Color Manila Nite Run: Blacklight Edition” on May 16, 2015 (Saturday) at the Filinvest City in Muntinlupa City starting at 6:00 PM. After a challenging fun run, all participants will have a free party at the race village featuring music from top DJs.
Now on its third edition, the Nite Run has experienced the best attendance among the Color Manila family of races. “It seems a lot of runners have trouble waking up early and many prefer to train in the evening to avoid the heat,” said race director Coach Jay Em of Proactive during the recent launch at the Crimson Hotel.
The usual 10 and three kilometer categories will be offered but this time the five-kilometer category has been scrapped in favor of six kilometers. “The six-kilometer category is in line with the new printers we are launching that have the capability of producing 6,000 pages for every refill,” proudly declared Brother Philippines President Glenn P. Hocson.
All three categories carry an entry fee of PHP 850.00. The race kit is probably one of the most loaded in recent races containing a fully sublimated dry fit technical shirt (with separate designs and cuts for men and women), race bib, drawstring bag, color packet and headlamp for all plus a pillow exclusive for six-kilometer registrants.
Unlike the powder used in regular Color Manila Runs, the powder for the May 16 race is specially formulated to glow in the dark once exposed to ultraviolet light. All powders are of food grade and remain safe.
All finishers will receive a souvenir medal. The said medal interlocks with the same medal given during the Color Manila Run last January at the Bonifacio Global City.
Online registration via credit card or PayPal is now ongoing at www.colormanilarun.com. Prepaid cards are also being sold at RUNNR branches in Bonifacio High Street, Alabang Town Center and Trinoma, Toby’s branches at Glorietta, SM City North EDSA, SM Megamall and SM Mall of Asia and all branches of SM Tickets nationwide.
Race kits can be claimed from May 9 to 11 at the Crimson Hotel. The confirmation email is required plus an authorization letter and identification cards in case one is claiming for other runners.
Aside from the post-race party and color festival, lucky participants may take home Brother printers and other products in the raffle. The DCP-T300 and DCP-T500W boasts of a revolutionary ink refill system and can print as much as 11 pages per minute.
The partnership between Brother Philippines and Color Manila Run does not end after May 16. Brother is also set to present the coming Color Manila Run regional races on May 24 in Davao City and May 31 in Cebu City.
It will surely be an experience to behold as the adrenaline rush from completing a physical challenge coupled by the sights and sounds of the ensuing party will take one to a natural high. Register now for the Color Manila Nite Run before stocks run dry!
