This Runrio '10 23year’s Runrio Century tuna Superbods run was held at the Fort, Makati City Feb 21, 2010. Sponsored by Century Tuna more than 11,000 participants joined the event and a thousand more runners were kept on the waiting list to join the Marathon. There are 4 categories to choose from 3KM (Blue), 5KM (Red), 10KM (Green) and 21KM (Yellow).

It was 3:00am as the crowds gathered in the starting line a mob starts to gather before the nightlights of the once quiet streets of the Forth in Makati. Barely an hour passes by and the crowd nearly swells to triple it’s size. Pre-marathon rituals are observed, stretching cold leg muscles, eating a light but energy efficient meal, all the while chatting with friends and co competitors, wishing them the best of luck to complete the race and to see each other at the finish line, triumphant and proud.

The Philippine national anthem jumps starts the day, as runners of different categories from different heats take to the their respective lineups, First to go was the 21k, followed by 10k, then 5K and finally 3k. Runners of all ages, backgrounds, professional or not ran side by side with a host of different movie personalities and models representing the century Tuna Superbods.

Drama unfolds as the crowd of runners ran out of the starting line and into the cool morning air, the site is something awe inspiring. Supported by a great team from Century Tuna the race was well organized from the roving ambulance that aided the injured, the police and security guards that helped in the direction of traffic to the Brazilian models giving away water at the different water stations around the course.

With the coming of the dawn the top 3 male and female runners for each division touches down at the finish line. They are promptly rewarded by the race officials and showered by flashes by the different news and media crews positioned at the end of the line. After so many interviews and congratulations they are shepherd to the main stage to receive their prize.

At around 8:00am most of the runners have made it back to the starting line, were a bazaar awaits all of them, some have been given food and drinks while other race categories were given souvenirs and a commemorative shirt. All in all this was one of the most successful Marathons organized for this year. Thank you Century tuna and Runrio for organizing this Superbods Tuna Run!
