The night run that is closest to my heart is back on its third year! Adobo Magazine, the premiere advertising magazine in the country together with Event King, one of the leading race organizers today brings us Adobo Run After Dark 3!  Read on for more details:

“Live music, fireworks, spectacular performances, free flowing beer… all the elements that make a great party.  And oh, did we mention that it’s also a run?

Prepare for a treat as Adobo Magazine, the country’s premier advertising and brand communications publication brings you its third edition of Adobo Run After Dark on Saturday, October 20 at the SM Mall of Asia grounds.  An estimated 5000 runners and party revelers get to celebrate their running feat with a full-blown party and live concert immediately after the race.

All fitness levels are welcome in the 5k, 10k and 15k race categories, with the first gun start firing at 6:30pm.

In keeping with the Halloween theme that has made Adobo Run After Dark stand out as a fun and unique event, cash prizes are also awarded to the creepiest, wackiest and most creative costumes of the night.

And here’s the best part.  While having the time of your life, a needy home is being lit through MyShelter Foundation’s “A Liter of Light” program, which is the beneficiary of Adobo Run After Dark for the second year running.” – PR
