Adidas is now opening registration for the Adidas King of the Road Southeast Asia Championship! Now on its 14th year, the most prestigious running event of the year will take place on September 30, 2012 at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Get your pumped-up running Adidas kicks ready and make sure y'all be in tiptop shape!
This year’s race will have three categories – 5K, 10K, and16.8K. The 16.8-kilometer run will have a gun start as early as 5 in the morning, while the 10-kilometer and 5-kilometer runs will respectively kick off at 5:30am and 5:50am.
For the 16.8K distance, two sub categories – the ‘Closed’ category for Filipino nationals and ‘Open’ category for all nationalities – will be implemented. Race fees will be P1,050 for the 5K and 10K categories and P1,300 for the 16.8 category. Each race kit will have its corresponding singlet, and an authentic medal awaits those who would finish the race with flair and effort.
The top male and female winners from the 16.8K Closed category will be hailed as the country’s King and Queen of the Road, which in turn will qualify for an all-expense paid trip to Singapore on October 28 to compete in the Adidas KOTR Southeast Asia Championship. Sounds super bongga, no?
