To add fanfare to the event a 21K, 10K, 5K and 3K run will also be held simultaneously and is expected to generate great attendance from different sectors of the society as in previous years. Registration for these race categories are now open and accepted at Annapolis Greenhills, Mizuno The Fort, Mizuno Trinoma and Planet Sports Rockwell.

To keep the event abreast with the latest technology, disposable timing chips will be used for the 10K, 21K and 42K events. Milo has taken this step to ensure that the standard of the race event will be at par if not better.

For the finals, Reinier Pacific and has again joined hands to offer a voluntary Aid Station as approved by the sponsors and race organisers. The aid station will primarily service the 21K and 42K runners and will be located at Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue and Chino Roces Street in Makati City. The aid station shall be providing muscle relaxant spraying to any/all runners that may wish to avail of the support service. Participants need not worry that should they avail of such support service the process will waste/eat previous time, but in reality such spraying service will take only a maximum of 15 seconds and will go a long way to relieve muscle pains. To avoid congestion, there will be 15-20 slots to provide spraying at one time. The 21k runners can avail once, while the 42K will pass the aid station twice and avail as much. Vaselinee and bananas will also be able on the same aid station.

On the same day Milo will also launch its new product ”MILO 3 in 1 For Adults” that will address the much needed added nutritional needs of Adults in their quest for energy.

To all the 42k finalist, serious runners and fun runners we wish you all the best... “KAYA MO ‘YAN”
