Globe - Ayala Run For Home 2010

Last Sunday, my wife and I once more joined another marathon and this time its with Globe and Ayala's Run For Home 2010. The race's beneficiary is the Habitat For Humanity where Ayala had donated 1 Million pesos.

The race was held in Ayala Center where the start line set up in front of the Ayala Tower One along Ayala Avenue. We took the 3Km race this time and our race gun start was around 545am but we were there in the area around 5am where we have seen the earlier races start. There was 3Km, 5Km, 10Km, 15Km and 21Km runs.

The Starting LineGlobe Run For Home 3Km Runners

The 3Km track was from Ayala Avenue, we turn left on Paseo de Roxas and left once more on De La Rosa Street and right turn on Legaspi St at the corner of Greenbelt. Then we turn left on Greenbelt Drive where we all run down a ramp through an underpass that pass below the mall and run up the ramp once more. Next we turned left to the road between Greenbelt and Renaissance Hotel. And once more turned left on Makati Avenue upto the corner of Ayala where we turn a right and run upto the corner of 6750 Bldg where we did a U-Turn and once more turn right on Makati Ave for our last stretch. On Paseo De Roxas we turn left where I saw the finish line and took the run for it. Other races led runners through Kalayaan Avenue up to Bonifacio Global City.

It was a great run and it was fun but I'd say the Superbods Run a month ago was more exciting due to the wide area in Bonifacio Global City for running and there were more freebies. Plus there were not many celebrities during this run.

My record for this run is 308th among the 3K runners with the time of 00:19:14.

Just found this being shown in the mall earlier. I didn't realize it was cool unlike their previous dances. This are the Cebu Penitentiary Inmates performing They Don't Care About Us from the This Is It album in tribute to the King of Pop.
