The sheer volume of local film celebrities from Star Magic being a major partner joining in this event makes this race special. If you are the star struck kind who would do everything just to be close or able to see your idol pores, sweat and all, then this is your race. After all, aside from Piolo Pascual, the main endorser of this event, a couple more Star Magic stables are slated to join in the run with the rest of the runners. They are Jane Oineza, Ynna Asistio, Francis Magundayao, Trina Legaspi, CJ Novato, Jovit Baldivino, Markki Stroemm and Igiboy Flores. They will be joined by former PBB all in housemates Aina Solano, Axel Torres, Fifth Solomon, Fourth Solomon, Joshua Garcia, Loisa Andalio, Manolo Pedrosa, Maris Racal, Nichole Barranda, Vickie Rushton, Rayver Cruz, Ejay Falcon, Joem Bascon, Jessy Mendiola, Matteo Guidicelli and some more surprise guests (as if these were not enough star overload!).
The main attraction aside from the stars is the very reason for the inception of this fun run, the raising of funds for Hebreo Foundation and a myriad charities helped by Star Magic. This is where the real magic and star attraction of ABS CBN stars comes from – the heart that gives back to those who have the least and are in dire need of help.
A number of running friends and group mates will be assigned as pacers for the joining stars, most of whom are newbie runners. Some had been doing this task for several years now. This year’s edition will already be the sixth and therefore quite a handful of scholars and beneficiaries had already been lucky recipients of the proceeds of these races. A gem of a cause such as this is very much worthy of all runners, and even walkers, support.
And more! If last year’s theme was COLORS, this year it will be MAZES! A couple of fun obstacles based on the four elements of water, wind, fire and earth will greet the runners at various strategic places to add spice and surprise to the race!
Runs until November 2

NOTE: Lootbags containing various sponsor freebies and Sun Life Towel will also be given at the finish line.
Assembly Time and Gun Start
Let me leave you with some snaps from the recent event launch with tri-media representatives from television, radio, print and social media held at Max’s Sct. Tuason, Quezon City. It was at this event when I had a first-hand experience on how showbiz writers and reporters barraged Piolo Pascual with repetitive questions on his love life and his son Inigo entering showbiz. It was some sort of “culture shock” for me not used to this kind of questioning, or rather, probing. A dashing and uber cutie, as my friend Teejay would profess, Robbie Domingo did a very good job at playing host to the event. He was upbeat and knowledgeable of anything running related being himself a runner.
The three panelist, or rather, couchist!
