DISTANCE CATEGORIES

Manila Great Run - Individual Competition

The Individual Competition is a long-distance category, consisting of two legs: a 10K run, followed by a 5K run, with a conditioning recovery break in between. The conditioning break is a very unique, exciting and challenging experience where runners, after their first 10K leg, will be exposed to various forms of healing, body work-outs as well as nutrition treats during the conditioning recovery breaks. The recovery breaks will help them prepare for their performance in the last part of the race: the final 5K leg.

Top three (3) male & female runners in the opening 10K leg will be awarded a green jersey, which they are required to wear during the final 5K leg.

Manila Great Run - Team Competition

The Team Competition is a relay, consisting of two legs: the first 10k run to be participated in by male runners, followed by the last 5K leg to be finished off by their partner females. There will still be a recovery break in between, where male runners, after their first 10K leg, will be exposed to various forms of healing, body work-outs as well as nutrition treats.

Top three (3) male runners in the opening 10k leg and their corresponding female partners will be awarded a green jersey, which the ladies are required to wear during the final 5K leg.

The placing in the both the Individual and Team Competitions is determined by combining the time of the first and second legs. Thus, it is not necessary for a competitor to win either the 10k or the 5k run. The timing chip will be used as the official timing system.
