The Great Walled City Run: Fun Run Along the Heritage Sites of Intramuros

Wazzup Pilipinas!

It would be great to run around the heritage sites of a city and experience a feeling of history while sweating it out with other runners. A fun run combined with a spirit of passionate respect towards the relics and structures of the past that most of us could only read in books and watch from documentaries can be relived.

I studied in Intramuros, specifically at the Mapua Institute of Technology, where i took up my engineering course, but honestly, I never got to enjoy roaming around the city. We were just to busy with school work and other projects that spending our spare time appreciating the ruins and heritage sites was never part of our itinerary.

It really is strange that we normally would plan to visit another far away place just to see the same old and historical sites, but the ones that are at hand and very near our areas are neglected and taken for granted. Since it was a common and ordinary sight for those of us who study nearby, we rarely gave it any importance. Or I was just probably too hooked in trying to finish my studies as early as possible, to get home quickly to work on my assignmenst and projects, to study my lessons for upcoming exams, to work on my thesis and projects,  rest and sleep for another day of hectic school activities.

In celebration of the 56th founding anniversary of Knights of Columbus Fraternal Association of the Philippines, Inc. (KCFAPI), there will be an amazing fun run called the Great Walled City Run happening at the walled city of Intramuros Manila on September 7, 2014.
