Kagay-An Festival Run 2012 to be like no other, councilor says
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, July 10 -- The Festival Run 2012 will be a fun run like no other according to local official.
Councilor Ramon Tabor, chair of the activity, said innovations will be introduced to make it more fun and lively.
The fun run is one of the seven core events being mulled by the fiesta executive committee chaired by Vice Mayor Caesar Ian Acenas to highlight this yearâ€™s Kagay-an Festival celebration.
Tabor said this will include a 42-kilometer run that will start from the Rodelsa Circle to Villanueva and back. He also said that this is the first time that a race of this kind will start and end in Cagayan de Oro. This is expected to draw runners and marathoners from all over the country. Foreigners likewise expected to come for the race.
Tabor said there will also be 3-km, 5-km, 10-km and 21-km races and a global walk for stroke victims. He said one innovation is that there will be different races for professional runners.
"A post activity for runners is also being mulled," Tabor said.
The councilor said different barangays where the race will pass through will be invited to participate in a cheering contest to spice up the activity. Prices will be given to the winners, he said. (Lorebeth C. Reguiroso/CIO/PIA10)
