MANILA - Yakult, in partnership with Mizuno and 100 PLUS, kicked-off its annual "Yakult 10-Miler" at the Liwasang Ullalim at the CCP Complex last March 5, 2017. For the first time in its 28-year history, the Yakult 10-Miler added a Half-Marathon Category in its event.
Proactive, the well-known race organizer of Color Manila Runs, was the event organizer of the pioneer 10-Miler this year. The fusion of both premier bodies proved to be an effective tandem due to the dramatic developments added in this year's run; the addition of finisher medals and post-race freebies in all registered kits.
Aside from the delay in the official gun time for the 21 KM Category, the Yakult 10-Miler event transitioned smoothly. The route map for this year's staging bested the previous ones. The roads were clear and checkpoints were monitored by race marshals. As expected, the hydration stations were sufficient and allocated effectively along the route while the post-race freebies were distributed without any hassle.
