Join the 35th MILO National Marathon in GenSan

Are you joining this weekend’s 35th MILO® National Marathon here in General Santos City?

For years, the National MILO® Marathon has been the biggest running event in the country. This year, it will hold its biggest advocacy campaign to date. Ten thousand more MILO® running shoes will be given to underprivileged children in 2011. That’s more than twice as much as MILO® gave away in 2010.

Same as last year, for every runner who joins the National MILO® Marathon, a portion of the registration fee will be allotted to the advocacy. And the money raised will be used to produce running shoes that will be donated to different public schools selected by the Department of Education in the areas where the 35th National MILO® Marathon will be held.

All these efforts are in line with the commitment of MILO® to build a nation of champions. Because MILO® believes that MILO® is not just giving away running shoes, but also providing these kids with something they can wear to be champions not just in sports, not just in school, but also in life.

The General Santos leg of the 35th MILO® National Marathon will occur this Sunday, October 30, 2011.

If you want to join this worthy and healthy endeavor and add up to the 12,700 pairs of shoes which has been donated so far this year, just go to the City Sports Office at the GenSan Oval Covered Court during office hours, today and until Friday and fill up the registration form there.  Choose from any of these race categories: 3-K, 5-K, 10-K and 21-K.  Make sure you pay the P100 entry fee (for 3-K, 5-K) or P500 (for 10-K, 21-K).

Here is what Bariles got when he registered last week for the 5-K Race: an XL singlet, his own RACE number bib and a couple of sachets of Nestle Fit juice drink.
