When one of the top hotels in Manila partners with one of the top race organizers in Manila, you’re sure you’re in for something great! Now on their 3rd race together, Sofitel and RunRio have once again partnered up to bring you one of the most sought after races for the year, the Sofitel Manila Half Marathon.


In the past year, Sofitel has kept runners excited with the Battle of the Sexes Leg 1 and 2. The two races were done for the benefit of the Virlanie foundation, to which they were able to donate a total of 1.5Million pesos! This year, Sofitel has decided to conduct one big race instead and hopes to be able to donate even more with its target of 6000 runners.
