One Run Takbo ni Juan: From the Road to the Mountains of Cebu

I felt bad by not being able to put a lot of support into this run. It started with Dondon for the #climatewalk of Father Robert Reyes, which started in Carcar to Bogo, then crossing to Leyte on the way to Tacloban, City, for the Yolanda crisis anniversary.

After the said #climatewalk, since not all runners were able to join it because it was on weekdays, Tony Galon and Cebu Ultrarunners Club and different running groups of Cebu organized a self-support 106KM ultramarathon, from Cebu City to Bogo City, where around 50 runners joined it. Here are some photos from Ulachika snapshots of this memorable event:


“Members of the Cebu Ultrarunners Club and other running groups conducted the “One Run Takbo ni Juan” to commemorate the first anniversary of the super typhoon Yolanda that battered the Eastern Visayas region and northern part of Cebu.Tony Galon, founder and president of the Cebu Ultrarunners Club, said they offered the memorial ultra run to the victims and survivors of the storm.He said the ultra-marathon is also intended to raise awareness on the effects of climate change and promote the planting of more trees in preparation for another storm. He clarified that they wanted to hold a peaceful commemoration. “We don’t care about political issues. We care more on the typhoon victims and raise awareness,” he said.Galon said that they aimed to arrive in Bogo City 16 hours after they started the run. 50 runners assembled at the kilometer zero marker in front of the Capitol building.” via 34 finish 100-km run to remember Yolanda | Cebu News, The Freeman Sections, The Freeman | philstar.com.
