Last January, I joined the 1st Greentennial Run with a friend. For a new name in the running world, Greentennial sure did not disappoint me. It was a clean run with lots of activities to do afterward! Because of the success of this run, several runners asked if they could organize another run, and so they did. But just before they finished it, the tragedies in Japan happened which led them to organize a run for the benefit of the victims of Japan. They only had a few days to prepare for Run for Japan but it was more organized and fun than many other long-planned races I joined in the past. Which leads me to their 3rd and upcoming run….

Where: Aseana City (near MOA)

Race Categories: 3K/5K/10K/16K/21K

It just keeps getting BIGGER and BETTER with every run! and the best part is that there will be NO INCREASE in the registration fee!

The Greentennial Half Marathon is done for the benefit of Epheta Home for the Blind. I tried finding what Ephpheta meant and this is what I came across in wikipilipinas:

“Ephpheta Foundation for the Blind, Inc., “Ephpheta” is an ancient Aramabic word meaning “Be Opened”. A rehabilitation and skills training program for visually-impaired persons; blindness prevention program and other services – Diliman, Quezon City.

Its goal is to improve the quality of life of the blind and to make them productive members of the Philippines society. The training programs it has introduced has been geared toward the development of the blind person physically, intellectually, morally and spiritually.”

So what are you waiting for guys??? Go register now!!!
