No Sunblock Needed @ KR Urbanite Run

Looking for a race that would break the seeming monotony of the usual early morning races?

Read on and realize 10 benefits!

Kenny Rogers is hosting a NIGHT run.  It may not be the first in local races but certainly something that come too few and far between.  Surely, newbies and veterans will be excited by this.

Register and get 3 major benefits:

1.  EAT a nutritious, sumptuous meal at Kenny Rogers (of course)  billed as the “Urbanite Meal” that  runners and non-runners alike will surely appreciate.

2.  RUN a night time race.  Ticket  will serve as your registration voucher for the run.

3.  DONATE and help feed and educate poor Filipino children.  It will serve as your donation to Hands-On Manila Foundation and 5775 Movement thru I am Ninoy Runners.  So be sure to bring your tickets and drop the “DONATE” stub at the designated box on race day.

Extra  Benefits:

4.  You can over-sleep on race day and still be early for the race.

5.  You don’t have to wear sticky and heat-inducing sunscreen.

6.  You get a new kind of racing experience running at night.

7.  You wouldn’t  have to worry about early morning success in the john. 😉

8.  You get greeted by Tribo’s live music  at the finishline for some Urbanite concert partying.

9.  You get an excellent chance of breaking-in your spouse, family and/or friends to the running scene with the friendlier time slot.

10.  You get to see or even probably run with KR endorsers and Amazing Race duo Marc Nelson and Rovilson!

So come on!  Register and help fund the causes of Hands-On Manila Foundation on nutrition  and the  I am Ninoy Runner’s  5775 movement  on education!

The  registration fee might be a little more expensive than most races but remember the benefits:  EAT, RUN and DONATE!

Registration is on-going and will end on August 11, 2009  so be sure to go to the nearest  Kenny Rogers  branch or log on to  You may also go to  Nike Park and Runnr Store at Bonifacio High Street for alternative registration sites.

Race kits, singlet including the timing chip will be released three (3) days before the race. Venue will be announced later.

Just a special rejoinder to  the I am Ninoy runners, let’s join this run and continue helping the cause.  As our shirts say  “Lets build mileage, build endurance, build schools…i am a hero.”   Let’s be a hero in our own rights.

For those who have not yet signed up,   we encourage you to be part of this worthy cause.

Calling all urbanites,  gorgeonites, lets join the Kenny’s Open 2009 Urbanite Run!

The night run will be held on August 15, 2009, 7pm at the Bonifacio Global City in the Fort.  5, 10 and 15k events are still open.
