COLOR MANILA Aims To Help Clark In Growing Their Sports Tourism Agenda

COLOR MANILA, currently the most aggressive ‘concept fun-run’ organizer in the country today, is setting its sights on its next  big event at Clark, Pampanga on March 19, 2017.  The last event of COLOR MANILA at Clark, Pampanga saw a sold-out event with 6,000 participants.  The upcoming CM Challenge Run, which will be held at the Clark Parade Grounds, will have the runners this time go through obstacles, color stations and mazes. 

Justine Cordero, VP for COLOR MANILA says, “We would like to invite runners and non-runners alike to join this exciting event, the CM Challenge Run.  We have customised a unique race route just for this run, with obstacles and challenges to make it more exciting, apart from being very colorful.  Of course, participants can also look forward to the after-party; we have invited DJ Franco Zarate to spin for us.”

Cordero continues, “We are targeting thousands of participants again for this fun-run.  We are also developing Clark as one of our bigger event sites outside of Manila.  Our recent event in Manila, which celebrated our 5th anniversary, saw 12,000 participants and we would like to eventually have a fun-run as big as this at Clark, Pampanga.”

“The last time we were at Clark, we saw participants from nearby provinces such as La Union, Baguio, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija and Tarlac.  We  also had some foreigners from other Asian countries and the United States who flew in just for that run.  We would like to consistently do this, along with our local partners, such as Clark Development Corporation, so we can help in our own way, in terms of growing the sports tourism agenda of Clark, Pampanga”, says Cordero.

Participants can choose between the Deluxe Kit and the Trooper Kit.  The Deluxe, which is at Php 650 includes the singlet, sunglasses and color packet.  While the Trooper Kit, which is priced at Php 1,050, comes with an added drawstring bag and headwear.  Runners can also choose between the 3K, 5K or 10K routes. 

Sponsors for the CM Challenge Run include Clark Freeport Philippines, Toby’s Sports, Runner, Anytime Fitness Angeles, Pascual, 100 Plus, Starbucks Coffee, SM Tickets and Runnr.  Registration is still ongoing at www.colormanilarun.com.

Directed by Ianco dela Cruz, it tells the story of a man who fell deeply in love with “the one” from the time he first saw her at a Jollibee store. But fate led them to a different path, and the story perfectly captures how love can take on a different form and still prevail in the end.

The second story “Date” explores the grim realities of life and love, yet brings to light the beautiful gifts of endless love.
