Run with Looney Tunes

This is sooo cool! I love this poster ad!  According to Coach Rio, this is only the 2nd time the Looney Tunes characters shared a frame with earthlings!  The first one being with Michael Jordan.  Remember that?

Cooler still would be the race itself.  Obviously meant to attract the kids, I’m pretty sure moms and dads are equally excited.  Another opportunity for a family run! YEY!!!

Here’s  the official press release:

Looney Tunes characters are active by nature. Their high-energy humour continues to thrill audiences young and old.  And because of their active perpetual motion, they’re one of the few character brands that stand for an active lifestyle.

Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) launched the Looney Tunes Active! as its    contribution to global efforts to promote an active and healthier lifestyle for children. Looney Tunes Active! aims to encourage an active lifestyle among its target market, primarily children, and their families, by engaging in sports and other physical activities while having fun at the same time.  Looney Tunes Active! shows kids that being active is cool!

In 2009, WBCP, through its Philippine agent, Global Brands Group, launched a school tour where running clinics were conducted by locally renowned coach Rio de la Cruz, in partnership with the Physical Education and Sports Clubs of participating schools in Metro Manila. This culminated with the first Looney Tunes Active! Fun Run in SM Mall of Asia on August 30, 2009.  The event was attended by almost 1,000 participants, consisting of children, parents and sports enthusiasts.

This year, WBCP will launch a sequel to the Looney Tunes Active! Fun Run, this time in SM Megamall on May 29, 2010, and SM City Cebu on June 5, 2010.  Acting as race directors are Rio dela Cruz, fresh from the Boston Marathon, and Noy Jopson, Philippines Iron Man, respectively.

    Yes, it’s really cool. I just started running for marathon this year and this looney tunes run is indeed one of a kind. Can’t wait to run with my cousins (though i got to say the reg fee is a bit high and it doesn’t even include snacks).

    I do have a question though about that 500 purchase at the department store, are those for kids only? and assuming that it’s not only for kids, if i ever get a race bib, do i automatically be registered for the run?

    Hi Markin,
    If you registered (meaning, paid to join the race under your own name) then you get a race pack(w/ race bib & other freebies) and can officially participate in the run. The P500 purchase in the department store entitles one to a race shirt/singlet only and not a race packet or race registration. One still has to register for the event to join the race even if one bought P500 looney tunes stuff.
    Thanks for dropping by!
