In it’s biggest year yet, TCS – Clark Animo Marathon is back this year.
With a whopping 6000 runners expected participants, the organizers, De La Salle Alumni Association – Pampanga Chapter (DLSAA-P) are on their toes to give all runners an unforgettable experience.
Registration just closed as spots got filled up fast for the province’s premier running event in Clark freeport zone. TCS – Clark Animo Marathon, now on its 9th year is expected to be one for the books. Boasting of Clark’s beautiful but unforgiving terrain, runners would see themselves challenged but remaining poised to beat their personal best times. DLSAA-P will be offering the same full range of distances, starting with the “fun” 2.5-kilometer and 5-kilometer distances, followed by the challenging 10-kilometer, 21-kilometer and of course full 42-kilometer marathon. The route for this year will bring runners from the farthest ends up to the highest points of the freeport zone. Noel Manankil, President & CEO of Clark Development Corporation says, “I commend the DLSAA Pampanga Chapter for building the Clark Animo Marathon from 400 runners on its first year to 6000 on its 9th edition. Being a proud Lasallian, I fully support the DLSAA’s initiatives in promoting Clark and the active and healthy lifestyle thru running.”
Happening on March 11, 2018 runners and sports enthusiasts will most definitely be gracing the event. The event area will come alive with performances from DLSU Pep Squad and DJ Kikoman. As usual, proceeds from the event will go to various Green projects of the DLSAA-P. Tree planting, [maintenance of the Rr A Quintos Animo boat], Angeles City Watershed, and the development of De La Salle Botanical Garden. DLSAA Pampanga President Atty. Melvin Panlilio says, “Expect a fun filled marathon as we showcase the fast and flat course of Clark, runners in costumes, adequate hydration stations and a lot of surprises happening during the day.”
