NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EARTH DAY RUN | NATGEO RUN 2017



This coming April 23, 2017, NatGeo Earth Day Run 2017 is back. It's going to be on a Sunday at the SM Mall of Asia grounds. This year, the event will be held not only in Manila but simultaneously with other 4 other cities across Asia. On its 8th year, Earth Day Run is expected to attract 20,000 running enthusiasts of all ages and fitness levels to participate for the good of the environment.


WHY JOIN NATGEO EARTH DAY RUN 2017?
  • This year, Earth Day Run will be sporting new features for its runners. 
  • The event encourages and welcomes all types of Eco Warriors to take part, from fun-runners of all ages to the serious marathon runners who regularly compete. 
  • All race kits will come with LED shoelaces, serving as a badge of pride and as a safety precaution for Eco Warriors running at night or before sunrise. 
  • Prizes will also be given to costumed runners who showcase their creativity by coming in their best ensemble made from recycled materials. 
  • Advocacy banners will be hanging above the finish line so that each runner can grab them as they cross to make a shout-out for the environment, keep as a souvenir, and use for all their post-run selfies to amplify the message of acting now to save the environment.
