Hey folks! So we have two weeks to go till the Nike Human Race. A few folks were asking if Manila, Philippines is part of the 25 cities that will be holding an official race. Manila is not an official city for a physical race, but the Philippines is still part of the Race the World Challenge and very much part of the 10k virtual race. I’m running
The friendly folks from Nike have partnered with Coach Rio, who will be, in turn, organizing a physical run on 8.31.08 at the Fort, Bonifacio High Street.
