Tun Fun Run kickstarts
General Santos City-The 2013 Tuna Fun Run kickstarted in General Santos City on Sunday, September 7, 2013.
The Run officially started at 4:30 A.M but there was another gunstart at 5:30 A.M. for the other categories.
The Fun Run, which is sponsored by the Notre Dame of Dadiangas “One Damean” Batch 87 as part of their silver jubilee celebration and the Order of Demolay of General Santos, is part of the Tuna Festival held every September of the year.
“We hope to surpass the 1,900 runners last year considering that fun runs are becoming popular these days,” Tuna Run Chairperson Ma. Lourdes L. Libres said. Also acting as Tuna Run chairperson is Bernadette B. Ruivivar.
The Tuna Run 2013 has four categories namely 3K, 5K, 10K, 21K and the 1.6K for parents-and-kids tandems. Among the expected participants are amateurs, professional runners and health buffs. Registration fees are from P200 to P450 with singlet and from Pp50 to P150 without singlet depending on the category (Elementary, College/Adult, Half Marathon and Adult and Child Tandem).
“All runners are expected to be at the Starting Line by 4:30 A.M.,” Libres said. The Fun Run will start and end at the Robinsons Place Gensan Parking Lot.
One Damean President Architect Elwyn Banares said they are determined to make the Tuna Fun Run a yearly event not only to raise funds for a cause but also to promote running as a lifestyle. Two Free Run Clinic lecture and practicum sessions were conducted by the organizers on August 23 to 24 and August 30 to 31. Marathoners Allan C. Delima and Jessie A. Lozada gave the hopeful runners an overview of the benefits of running and some running tricks and tips.
