Taking a marathon to the next level has totally been mastered by fun runs. Fun runs come with different gimmicks--from wearing superhero outfits, running with pets, getting chased by zombies to finishing the marathon full of color powders. On August 8, Aromatic Night Fun Run will be held at the Bacolod Government Center. It is a fun run during the night and you get to party with live bands afterward.
Since one of the sponsors of the event is Aromatic 1001, free massage will also available after the run. There are three race categories, 3k, 5k and 10k, which costs PhP300, PhP450, and PhP550, respectively. Registration sites will be at Planet Sports and Athlete’s Foot Robinsons Place Bacolod, The Sports Warehouse Citymall Goldenfield, and Four B’s K1 Sportshouse. Registration comes with a singlet, race bib and medals for the 50 people who can finish on top.
How to get there: From the Bacolod Downtown Area, just ride a jeepney that has a Homesite - Central Market route which passes by the government center. You can also take the Dona Juliana vice versa jeepney, just inform the driver to drop you off at Bangga Cory (the EDSA of Bacolod City). Then, hail a tricycle going to the government center.
Tips: Bring bottled water. People mostly tend to rely on the water provided by the organizers, but observing fun runs nowadays, they usually just offer you a few plastic cups in every milestone you reach. In order to keep yourself always hydrated, it is recommended to bring bottled water. You must also check your shoes and outfit if it’s in good condition, clean it as well to avoid any discomfort. The day before the race, you should also relax, and not overload yourself with carbohydrates.
