SM2SM Run is running on its eighth year as it unfolds four new race categories: 4K, 8K, 12K and 21K to be held on February 18, 2018 (Sunday) at SM City Cebu. The proceeds of the annual fun run go to the Cebu News Workers’ projects and new programs and the Street Children of Cebu Foundation headed by Councilor Margot Osmeña.
Ms. Marissa N. Fernan, VP SM Prime Holdings, Inc. takes pride and joy in the charitable fun run as she shared to the media and bloggers of how SM City Cebu’s big event have helped nurture young & older runners and the running community in Cebu, as well. “For the second year, we will be inviting those who are training under Mary Joy Tabal to join and we will be giving them free registration — that is our partnership with them as well as the running programs of Mayor Cristina Frasco in Liloan,” added Ms. Fernan.

Ms. Fernan clearly pointed out that SM2SM is not really a competitive run, it’s meant to be fun. Even if it’s the biggest run in Cebu City now in terms of prizes, she hopes that everybody will have fun.
“That’s the whole idea of having this run. It’s not to have podium finishes but we want a run where people can develop the love for running,” said Ms. Fernan.
