Splash in the Fun at Songkrun 2 This May
The biggest water party and fun run is coming back to Manila this summer! Get ready for Songkrun 2 on May 17, 2020 at the CCP Complex in Pasay City.
Now on its 2nd year, Songkrun is back to help you get fit and at the same time, get wet this summer.
Adapted from Thailand’s Songkran Festival, it depicts the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year. The festival is not just an excuse to throw water at the people. As part of Thai tradition, water is splashed as it washes the old misfortunes in the past year and welcomes the coming of the new year.
In a recent expansion, event organizer—Run4UrLife, decided to adopt the idea and turn it into a fun run.
Runners can choose to run from the 3K, 5K, 10K, and 21K races. Gunstart time varies for all, as well as the cut-off time. Here’s the full list of the details:
|Race||Assembly Time||Gun Start Time||Cut-Off Time|
|3K (Php 799)||3:00 a.m.||4:30 a.m.||1 Hour|
|5K (Php 899)||3:00 a.m.||4:20 a.m.||1 Hour|
|10K (Php 999)||3:00 a.m||4:15 a.m.||2 Hours|
|21K (Php 1099)||3:00 a.m.||4:00 a.m.||3 Hours|
