Spend an evening of fun with family and friends at TITANS RUN 2023: Glow in the Dark, which will take place on the evening of March 12, 2023, at Mandani Bay in Mandaue City.
The fun run is open to the public and is organized by the PAREF Springdale School in collaboration with the Student Body Organization (SBO) and the parents of Grade 3 students.
Enzo Nathan Go, President of PAREF Springdale SBO, said the TITANs RUN 2023 aims to promote family bonding.
“What we’re trying to sell to the general public and to our own community is a fun and enjoyable experience through amenities like glow-in-the-dark accessories for a festive and lively event held at night,” Go said.
According to Go, the inspiration for the TITANS RUN 2023: Glow in the Dark came from a previous run when they had festival colors. The theme Glow in the Dark makes the fun run, having it at night makes it more memorable.
“It’s a family event because Springdale by its branding centers around families. So, everything we do, and the events that we have, focus on family bonding. This is a family run where students can invite their friends and their families,” said Anthony Guarde, adviser of the PAREF SBO. This is the fourth run since 2019 and with the first glow-in-the-dark theme.
Johann Tan, vice president of Springdale SBO, explained that doing the fun run at night also helps to cater to families since the kids no longer need to wake up early at 4 a.m. or 5 a.m. to be able to join the event. This also enables parents to run with their children and enjoy the merchandise and the entertainment.
According to Go, the TITANS RUN 2023 will have five categories – 1K, 3K, 3K for Dad and Son (for 12 years and below), 5K, and 10K. The event is open to the public, with kids as young as five or six and people aged 60. The gun start will be held every 15 minutes starting at 6:30 p.m. for the 10K up to 7 p.m. for the 1K.
The registration fees are P600 for the 1K and 3K; P1,100 for the 3K Dad and Son; P650 for the 5K; and P700 for the 10K run, Go said.
All runners will get a dry-fit race shirt, one glow accessory, a race bib, and a finisher’s medal. Runners may also bring their own accessories, such as glow sticks, wristbands, and blinking lights. They could also buy some at the kiosks during the fun event.
The 1K run is ideal for children and will be held only at the Mandani Bay compound. The route of other races will be conducted along F.E. Zuellig Ave., Mandaue City, which will be closed to traffic during the duration of the fun run. There will be kiosks and snacks available for those who would like to eat after the event.
The proceeds will be used for school development projects, including Father’s Day, and will also go to the Student Body Organization’s advocacies, including proposed collaboration with the student councils of other schools.
They are targeting around 2,500 participants. Those interested may register at bit.ly/TitansRun2023. For concerns or clarifications on the run, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us at 0915 419 0049.
