Here is a series of racing events that I’m sure runners will look forward to participating in – RIP THE ROAD! The first leg, RIP THE ROAD 1 – UNLEASHED is set to happen on Sunday, November 25 at the Makati CBD!

The following will be what’s in store for every participant :

  • New concept – 10k race series with 5 qualifying legs and a championship
