Globe-Ayala Land Run for Home 2010 – LAST DAY!!!

No doubt you’ve heard or read something about the  Globe -Ayala Land Run for Home 2010!  If there’s one thing we want to tell you now, it is this…  IT’S THE LAST DAY OF REGISTRATION.  SIGN UP NOW!!!

Last year’s edition brought us the first use of a timing chip in local shores with Runpix analysis.

Once again Globe brings us a pioneering development in the race scene.  For this year’s Globe run, runners will be treated to an exciting interface with the very popular social networking apps, Facebook.

How would you like your Facebook friends to know how you did in the race immediately after crossing the finish line without having to open your laptops or needing to access your cellphones?  Would you rather that your friends and/or family see you cross the finishline via livestream?  Exciting right?

After every race, we go home with our 3 daughters eagerly awaiting news about our run.  What distance we ran, how we did, what time we finished and so on.  We would be telling them details of the race even before we reach the door.  How Daddy cramped, how Mommy needed a restroom break again in the middle of the race and of course how we finished our races.

With this year’s Globe Run-for-Home, they don’t have to just settle for words, they will actually be able to see us finish our races!  They are very excited!!!  Our eldest daughter would surely have her Facebook open to see our finishing times even before we get home.  I’m sure the family will be having a different kind of bantering this time as our children  will actually be seeing us running to the finish in the comfort and safety of home.  I would sure try to remember to smile at the finish lest they see what our daughter Bea and I call “the face of agony”  HAHAHA

For RACE DETAILS, read on…

The Cause:  Community Development

  • Globe is donating a portion of the proceeds to Habitat for Humanity Philippines, with the common goal of building communities through volunteerism.
  • Habitat for Humanity is a global organization dedicated to uplifting people’s lives by providing them affordable and durable housing.   In partnership with Habitat for Humanity Philippines, Globe will support the construction of new housing units to address the need for resettlement of the informal settlers from the Pasig riverbanks, a project initiated by Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig (KBIP).  Run for Home 2010 will help fund the construction of houses in Bayanijuan sa Calauan, a 100-hectare resettlement community in Barangay Dayap, Calauan, Laguna. This initiative is part of the Ayala Group of Companies’ commitment to build communities for those in need.
  • Globe has been working with Habitat For Humanity since its arrival in the Philippines in the year 2000. Globe and its employees have built homes in Taguig, Mandaluyong, Batangas, Cebu and Davao over the years.

The Venue:  Makati CBD

This year you and your pals can share your proud day at Globe-Ayala Land Run for Home 2010. On March 21, 2010, runners of every ilk — serious athletes, health buffs and weekend warriors alike — will converge at Makati City’s Ayala Triangle Garden to join one of the biggest urban runs of the year.  With a route winding through the premium Makati Central Business District, casual runners can cruise the 3k or 5k routes, while the more competitive can test their mettle with the 10k or 15k.  As for the hardcore runners, they can get their game on with a 21k half-marathon.

The Runners:  Showbiz Celebrities Included

Last year’s Run for Home event, held at the Bonifacio Global City, was one of the first races to breach the 6000-runner mark. And that day in 2009 was peppered with personalities such as business scions Fernando Zobel De Ayala and Lance Gokongwei, political powerhouse Senator Pia Cayetano, celebrities Christine Reyes and Samboy Lim, and power couples like  Anton and Nina Huang,  Paco Sandejas and Christine Jacob, and Anthony Pangilinan and Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan.

The Discount:  Up to P2000 discount for group registration

This year, Globe lets you bring along your whole brood by offering special packages for group registration. In 2010, Run for Home will give out discounts of up to P 1000 for groups who register for the shorter runs, while groups who sign up for the longer distances can get up to P 2000 off their registration fees.

The Treats:

If you’ve got well-wishing non-runners in your party, they can wait for you at the Ayala Triangle Garden, noshing on finger foods and drinks, or getting online via Wi-Fi to tweet news and post live Facebook ® updates.

In a unique bonus, race kits come with the first-ever environmentally-friendly singlet made from recycled PET bottles. And when you cross that finish line, your success will automatically be posted on your Facebook page, thanks to the electronic timing chip provided by Run for Home, which tracks your progress to the second. In the days following the run, you can check your race photos and post-run results and analysis on Globe’s website, so you can see how you and your pals did and relive the moment you powered past that finish line.

Add in the very worthy cause of providing Filipinos with affordable housing, with Globe and Ayala Land donating a portion of the race proceeds to Habitat for Humanity, and Globe adding an additional P 200 for every Globe Platinum subscriber who joins the run, and Globe-Ayala Land Run for Home 2010 is now this year’s top human race.

The Globe-Ayala Land Message:
