Running and music has been closely associated for the longest time. Even way back when portable audio/tape players, late 1970s, or more popularly known as walkman. Combining music and running in one festival can certainly be fun! That’s why The Music Run is here.
The very first The Music Run, a 5k running and music festival, drew nearly ten thousand participants last year. Now on it’s second year, Philam Vitality returns to ampup an equally large, or perhaps even larger crowd with everyone’s favorite hits playing on 120 concert-quality speakers. This year, the festival will be held at the McKinley West in Taguig City, Philippines.
In partnership with music streaming service Spotify, The Music Run Vitality will rock Manila on December 3, 2016. “This is the second time that Philam Life is partnering with The Music Run. We want to send a strong message that being healthy can also been fun and engaging,” said Kats Cajucom, Deputy Head of Philam Vitality. “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,” she added.
The Music Run will include five music-themed zones, rock, pop, old school, hip hop, and dance. You can vote up to five songs per playlist everyday to choose official soundtrack for each zone. Use the live Spotify Music Voting App on the official website The Music Run, themusicrun.com.ph
