Runners, gird your loins because we’re taking your marathon experience to the next level by giving it a fun-filled and colorful spin at the CM Clark Marathon 2017! Go the distance, good luck, and, don’t forget to have fun!
Since its inception back in 2012, master colorful fun run organizer, Color Manila, has been taking the country by storm by staging fun runs that make colorful and unforgettable marks in the Philippine running scene. Now on its fifth year, it’s revving up its game by serving up something new to the Pinoy running community through the CM Clark Marathon, taking place this September 24 at the Clark Parade Grounds in Clark, Pampanga.
In true Color Manila fashion, CM Clark Marathon is going to take your marathon experience several notches higher by splattering the route and the runners with a bevy of bright colors while pounding the 21K and 42K pavements. Giving this event a plus point is the fact that it is untimed so participants can be as intense or relaxed as they wish to be on the run. Hence, both speedsters and even social media savvies who just want to score #Instagramable photos and videos from the run are both welcome. Also welcome are 3K, 5K, and 10K participants who may cover shorter distances while still savoring a challenging yet endorphin-inducing event. Following the run, participants will then get to blitz each other with more bright colored powders while swaying and swinging to the tune of today’s hits at the Color Festival—a fitting culmination to an entire morning of running and merrymaking.
Families and friends that run together stay together! Add color (literally and figuratively) to your running experience by making CM Clark Marathon a family affair or a group get-together! Remember: the more, the merrier! And, oh, while at it, don’t forget your #groufie shot!
“From the bottom of our hearts, we thank our CM runners for being part of five fruitful, fun-, and color-filled running years! We have been growing in years and numbers, yes, but we are just as daring and driven as we were during our first year! We’re proud to say that CM Clark Marathon, our first colorful marathon event in the country, is a brainchild born out of our penchant for making you happier, healthier, and more hyped-up for running. We can’t wait to stage more colorful and more fun, and festive marathons for you, guys!” exclaimed Color Manila VP Justine Cordero.
