Palo Cathedral to hold PC Run 2013
PALO, Leyte – The Palo Cathedral holds its grand fun run 2013 this August 3, 4 am, at Palo Cathedral grounds.
This activity was conceptualized by this year’s hermana, the Corpin family, who coordinated with the Palo Committee of Sports headed by Dr. Ciriaco Agner. In line with the celebration of the 183rd town fiesta, this fun run was organized and the proceeds of the event would go to the repair of the old “Pipe Organ,” which was donated to the church a few years ago by a group of Palon-on people who are now based in the United States.
The fun run consists of a 5-kilometer, 10-kilometer, and 18-kilometer race, open to all running enthusiasts, associations, LGUs and various youth and parish ministries in Palo, Tacloban and nearby communities or towns as well.
“This is the very first grand fun run in Palo wherein different bodies, not just from the town but also from the city and nearby towns, will be joining the activity and with that, we are very much pleased and encouraged to anticipate the success of this fun run especially that it will be for a great cause,” Dr. Roy Manuel Espina, co-coordinator of the said event, said in a phone interview.
“Early registrants will have a 25% discount for their fees, that’s why we encourage everyone who are interested to join this fun run to just proceed to our registration booths before July 15,” Dr. Kimberly Queen Corpin Dadizon, co-organizer, said in an interview.
The 5-kilometer run will have the route going to Salvacion-New Diversion Road-Baras-Guindapunan-and back to its starting point. The 10-kilometer run will follow the Salvacion-New Diversion Road-Baras-National Housing Authority (NHA)-Candahug (BIR)-Pawing-Guindapunan-and back. However, the 18-kilometer run will have the same route from Salvacion to Candahug and from there; they will travel from Manlurip-San Jose- Coca-cola-Marasbaras-Pawing-Guindapunan-and back. Each will have the Palo Cathedral grounds as the starting area.
Moreover, medical and hydration stations will also be provided for the runners in every 2.5 kilometers of each route. Each booth will be assisted by marshals coming from the Bureau of Fire Protection-Palo (BFP-Palo) and some CAT students from St. Mary of Palo (SMAP).
Also, according to Espina, a promotional run participated in by volunteer-runners from Tacloban will also be conducted on July 15 at the downtown area. This will start at 6 am at the Sto. Niño Church grounds, traversing the streets of Real, Imelda Veteranos, Justice Romualdez and back to its point of origin. This aims to encourage more participants to the said event.
For further inquiries, you can call 323-4050 or 832-0330 or proceed to the Palo Cathedral Parish. (Kathleen Ave L. Crucillo, LNU Intern)
