CEBU CITY, Philippines – Everything is in place for the Cebu City Summer Fun Run of Coco Running at Cebu City Sports Center (CCSC) tomorrow, Sunday, May 15.

The running event which is in collaboration with the Cebu City Sports Commission (CCSC) has attracted 1,100 runners so far, according to veteran race director Joel Juarez of Coco Running.

“We have 1,100 runners for tomorrow’s race event, including our grassroots athletes. We are now setting up the arc of the start and finish area. Everything is ready for tomorrow’s race event,” said Juarez.

This annual running event is already in its fourth year, having skipped two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will be the second running race held in Cebu City after the sports reopened to the public in February, two years after the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The run, which begins and ends at the CCSC oval, will feature a distance of 10 kilometers, 5 kilometers and 3 kilometers. The top three will receive cash prizes, while all registered runners will receive a finisher’s medal, refreshments and a bib.

More than 100 athletes from the CCSC’s basic training program will be seen in action at tomorrow’s run. CCSC President John Pages has allocated a number of entries to the CCSC base program to provide exposure to potential young athletes in competitions like this race.

The gun start is at 5:30 a.m. for the 10K, followed by the 5K at 5:40 a.m. and 5:50 a.m. for the 3K distances.
