MANILA, PHILIPPINES— The ultimate 5k running and music festival drew nearly ten thousand runners when it first made waves in the Philippines last year. This year, The Music Run™ by Philam Vitality returns to ampup an equally large—or even larger—crowd with everyone’s favorite hits playing on 120 concert-quality speakers across McKinley West in Taguig City.
In partnership with music streaming service Spotify, The Music Run™ by Philam Vitalitywill rock Manila on December 3. Last call for registration ison November 25.
Philam Life has been at the forefront of leading innovations in the life insurance industry to change the general perception about insurance. Insurance is about living life to the fullest without worry and being healthy to pursue one’s passion and achieve one’s goals.
“This is the secondtime that Philam Life is partnering with The Music Run™. We want to send a strong message that being healthy can also be fun and engaging,”Deputy Head of Philam Vitality Kats Cajucom said.
“One of our company’s main thrusts is healthy living through our Philam Vitality program, which is the first of its kind in the Philippines. It is a full-scale wellness program where members get rewarded for making healthy choices. Through Philam Vitality, we are taking active steps to positively transform the lives of Filipinos by helping them live longer, healthier, and better lives,” Cajucomadded.
“While most fun runs originate from the US, The Music Run™ started in Asia and expanded throughout the region before crossing over to Europe and the US in the last two years,” said Martin Capstick, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Exceed Sports and Entertainment who is organizing the run.
“The reason for its massive success is its winning formula that combines music with the ever-growing fitness craze into the ultimate running and music festival that also puts control of the run’s soundtrack in the hands of our Music Runners™,” he added.
The five-kilometer run will include five music-themed zones playing rock, pop, old school, hip hop, and dance. Using the live SpotifyMusic Voting App on http://www.themusicrun.com.ph, participants can vote up to five songs per playlist every day to build the official soundtrack for each zone.
The event will kick off with a pre-run performance by up and coming local alternative band Sud, while the after-run music festival will feature Australian radio house DJ Sam Withers.
