PTT Run reset to Saturday, Sept. 22
September 18, 2018
Due to the aftermath of Typhoon Ompong, the PTT Run for Clean Energy Year 2 scheduled last Sunday has been reset to Saturday (Sept. 22) at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Grounds.
With the CCP grounds a total mess due to trees, leaves and branches scattered over portions of route, some of which were flooded, organizers made the decision to do the reset for the safety of the runners.
“We would have continued with it, rain or shine, but the route was quite dangerous for participants,” said Subterranean Ideas project manager Matt Ardina, who added that there was no longer an available Sunday schedule for the next four weeks, hence the choice of Saturday.
Registration for the run is ongoing until Sept. 20 at Chris Sports Outlets at SM Manila, SM Mall of Asia and SM North EDSA. Onsite registration is also available an hour before the race categories. Interested runners may also call tel. nos. 09186002411 (Smart), 09953248315 (Globe) and landline 9759584 for more details.

A mini concert will be provided by the Lester Llansang-fronted Cahlio band and up-and-coming Dotty Chan and Yela, who will also play a couple of songs at the Wish Bus situated near the stage.
Part of the proceeds of the Run will be donated for the environmental programs of the PTT Philippines Foundation, which for years have been leading the efforts to preserve and conserve the environment through its CSR programs Sibol, Re-Greening the Marikina Watershed, Gas Up for a Tree and Bakajuan, among others.
Race categories are 10k (P520), 5k (P420) and 3k (P320), all inclusive of race shirt, race bib and giveaways. Top three male and female runners of the 10k and 5k will get cash prizes and medals.
