If you are looking for a running event that will take you off roads and give you a different kind of wild running experience, then find time today to register for the upcoming Cebu Safari Run.
When and where is the Cebu Safari Run?
Mark your calendars and save September 15, 2019, for a surely unforgettable weekend run in the wild. The Start and Finish line will be inside the Cebu Safari & Adventure Park in Carmen town, northern Cebu.
The Cebu Safari & Adventure Park is the premier Safari park in the Philippines. It serves as a sanctuary for hundreds of different species of plants and animals. A brainchild of hippophile and orchid collector, Senyorito Michel Lhuillier, together with his business partner, Mr. Eduard J. Loop, this over 170-hectare property features more than a thousand animals from 120 different species.
The Park’s main features, for now, are the African Savanna, Michelle’s Garden, Gardens of the World, and the White Lion Safari.
The Park also caters to adventure seekers with its very own Adventure Park which features one of the longest and deepest Ziplines in the country at 1.3 kms. long and 670 m. deep.
What are the distances runners can choose from?
Tag your loved ones and BFFs and register for the 3K and 5K distances. There’s no cut-off time for these distances, so you can walk-run-pose for a selfie or groupie with your squad. If you want to explore the scenic wilderness inside the park, you can run the 12K or the 21K distances.
