…if you have not run a race by the longest running event organizer of Cebu, Run for Sight, who is celebrating their 10th edition of University Run this year.

As a special treat with their anniversary celebration, runners will get a second medal aside from the finisher’s medal – Run for Sight 10th anniversary commemorative medal.


…if you do not have a photo with the power running couple, Doc Yong & Ms. Donna Cruz-Larrazabal. How active the running community in Cebu is, this couple is one of the reasons to thank for. Together with their Run for Sight team, they started organizing fun runs back in the days when the idea of running was still very alien. And, it certainly helped to motivate Cebu community to be active if you have good-looking runners to look up to.
