Since it started with the Battle of the Sexes last 2012, the Sofitel Manila runs had quickly become a race most people would look forward to. It is not only fun and organized, but it’s a race for a cause too – one factor I feel is very important when choosing races.

Last year, Sofitel Philippine Plaza held its first half marathon. This year, Sofitel Manila continues to cultivate a lifestyle of wellness as it holds the 2015 Sofitel Manila Half Marathon. In partnership  with RunRio, the Sofitel Manila Half Marathon is a hub for runners and wellness enthusiasts uniting in an effort to support the children of the Virlanie Foundation.

“Over 4,500 runners joined us in last year’s Sofitel Manila Half Marathon. The event aims to bring us at level with similar international runs such as the Singapore Marathon. More importantly, the Sofitel Manila Half Marathon is an event with heart as the collaboration with RunRio and our featured partners are to support and uplift the lives of the street children of Manila through the Virlanie Foundation,” shares General Manager, Adam Laker.
