About Takbo Para Sa Kalikasan: Second Element Run - Water Run Edition 2019
Water Run 2019 set on July 21 at the CCP Complex.
Takbo Para Sa Kalikasan holds its second leg run of the four elements representing fire, water, air, and earth. Organized by Green Media Events, the year-long benefit run series aims to urge the public to partake in environmental conservation amid the drastic impacts of global warming.
Water Run 2019 is set on July 21 (Sunday) to be held at CCP Complex, Pasay City. There are four (4) categories to choose from: 3K, 5K, 10K and 18K. All finishers will get a finisher medal and a lootbag from our generous sponsors, while the 10K and 18K runners will get a finisher shirt.
Thousands of runners, running groups and environmental advocates participated in Fire Run 2019 (Leg 1) last May 5. Runners are encouraged to be more pro-active and participate in the plogging activity (eco-friendly workout).
“The devastating impact of climate change is felt, with people and wildlife suffering from its consequences,” said the Green Media Events.
Portion of this year’s run proceeds goes to the Haribon Foundation, the country’s pioneer environmental group focused on conserving and protecting biodiversity from ridge to reef.
According to Haribon, not only is global warming killing a lot of our plant and animal species, it remains to threaten our survival affecting the food that we eat, water we drink, air we breathe and the weather we experience.
Using paperless registration and encouraging runners to bring water containers for refills, the run also aims to promote zero-waste and eco-friendly practices. All other wastes will also be collected from strategically-located bins, which will be recycled to avoid additional waste.
Watch out for more announcements and promos leading to the Water Run event, as well as the last two legs: Air Run (September 15), and Earth Run (November 24).
Finisher medals form a puzzle piece that can be put together to represent the interconnectedness of all life and the four nature elements. Runners who get to participate in all four legs will receive a trophy beautifully made of eco-friendly materials.
