I Run for Integrity

Last Sunday, together with some of my colleagues, I joined the Integrity Run which is a symbolic run for good initiative, integrity, and fight against corruption. The Integrity Run is private sector-led campaign which aims to diminish or fully eradicate rampant corruption in the Philippines which we are very aware of.

This running event was organized by the Makati Business Club (MBC) and the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP). As one of its members, Halcrow showed support to ECCP’s integrity initiative by sending 28 participants including moi :)

With Halcrow colleagues
I registered in the 5k category and got a race packet which included a red singlet, bib, and information brochure all for free since my company paid for it. Yey! Our office even had a Halcrow-design dri-fit shirt made for us. 

I love my Halcrow shirt
I ran the 5k race and finished it in ------. That’s because the race results haven’t been posted yet (hope the organizers will post it soon). My guess is I finished the 5k race under 30 minutes.

It was a well-organized run despite the fact that the race started a bit late. After the race, we even got free big breakfast meal from McDonalds. And yes, the raffle prizes were exciting such as the Manila Bay Cruise, overnight accommodation and tour at Corregidor Island, 3D/2N trip to Bellarocca (which I am dreaming of!), and an all expense-paid 4D/3N stay in Bangkok. For a wanderlust like me, I wish I could have won even one of these.

It always feels good to run. Will aim for 15k next time. lol. To running and beyond!



Da do run run
