     BEAT THE summer heat by joining the Color Manila Blacklight Run at the Filinvest Corporate City this May 27, 2017 starting at 5:00 PM.  Runners of all levels will surely enjoy the full sensory experience as they slice through the darkness while getting sprinkled with powders that transform colors once exposed to a special lamp!

The good news is that this year organizers will also be taking the Blacklight Run on tour throughout the country with stops set in Bacolod City’s The District North Point on June 3 and at Davao’s SM Lanang Premier on August 12.  Very soon, dates and venues for similar races in Cebu and Clark, Pampanga will be announced making sure that more will share in the fun.

All distance categories in Metro Manila – 10, five and three kilometers – will have the same registration fee put runners can choose between several the Deluxe and Rockstar packages.  The Deluxe packages goes for PHP 950.00 and consists of one race shirt, race bib, headlamp and colored powder while the Rockstar costs PHP 1,500.00 and includes everything in the Deluxe package plus a drawstring bag, face paint and foldable water bottle.

Runners have the choice between two sumptuously designed shirts entitled “Retro” and “Psychedelic”.  They can also choose what color of drawstring bag they want.

In addition, the six-kilometer Challenger will be introduced for PHP 2,000.00.  Challenger participants will have to negotiate several obstacles and will be entitled to an additional shirt on top of everything included in the Rockstar package.

However, provincial races will have a different pricing scheme while offering the same 10, five and three-kilometer categories. The Deluxe package is set at PHP 750.00 with a singlet, race bib and color packet followed by Rockstar at PHP 1,050.00 that consists of a shirt, race bib, headlamp and drawstring bag while the Superstar package is at PHP 1,500.00 and has everything in the Rockstar package plus two more drawstring bags, headwear and a sticker.

Medals await all finishers.  “At Color Manila Run, everyone is a winner,” said CM Vice President Justine Cordero.

Registration is ongoing at and at all SM Ticket outlets nationwide.  Prepaid cards may be purchased at RUNNR at Trinoma, Alabang Town Center and Bonifacio High Street, Toby’s at Glorietta, Abreeza, SM Mall of Asia and SM Megamall, Planet Sports at Robinson’s Place-Bacolod and Chris Sports at SM Lanang.

Last January, Color Manila successfully staged the fifth edition of their flagship Color Manila Run at the SM Mall of Asia.  “We hope to replicate the 12,000 runners that joined last January as the Blacklight Run Tour is a good way to promote tourism and at the same time have fun with the entire family,” said Color Manila General Manager Randy Canapi.

The Blacklight Run will offer everyone to the chance to have clean fun while being unclean on the outside with all those powders.  The country’s biggest night run just got even bigger so join now!
