A Bigger NatGeo Earth Day Run kicks off April 10

A bigger NatGeo Earth Day Run (EDR) awaits thousands of students, professionals, athletes, health buffs, and celebrities as the event kicks off with an added 21-kilometer race on April 10, 2011 at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

“We were encouraged by last year’s huge turnout that’s why we are putting up the 21K race,” said Jude Turcuato, Fox International Channels territory director. “It looks like we are going the have twice the participants this year from the 5000 runners in last year’s inaugural race as more and more people are taking up running as a sport.”

Aside from the 21K race, the NatGeo EDR features 3K, 5K, and 10K categories. A limited edition NatGeo EDR technical shirt is included when you register with each distance having an assigned color.

The NatGeo EDR is an annual event aimed at creating awareness about caring for the planet and helping save the environment. It is part of the National Geogrpahic Channel’s (NGC) global thrust in support of Earth Day on April 22 this year.

Apart from encouraging Filipinos to care about the planet, NGC also plans to help bring a constellation of stars in the Mind Museum’s Universe Gallery by asking NatGeo EDR online registrants to sponsor a star. Details and mechanics can be found through the EDR website.

Sponsors will receive an electronic “Donor’s Certificate” and a sponsorship badge that they can post on Facebook. Their names will also be posted at the Mind Museum website.

Online registration is available at www.natgeorun.com until March 27, 2011. On-site cash registration is accepted at the NatGeo EDR booth at the left wing ground floor of Greenbelt 3 in Makati City until April 3, 2011.
