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.

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.
