The first run in 2011 was composed of only two categories, 3K and 6K. I ran the 6K despite not having run for the past 10 or 12 years before that. My legs were hellish for the next 5 days then.
I like the political message of the running shirt that year. It summarizes the political philosophy being championed by the FNF in its many offices worldwide.
FNF Country Director, Jules Maaten, took this photo that day, Thanks Jules.
Last year, I joined Freedom Run 2012, Start-Finish at the municpality of Taytay, Rizal, passing through one side of Laguna Lake. I ran the 10K and covered the distance in about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The municipal government of Taytay, the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA) were among the co-sponsors of the event.
A big number of participants in last year's run in Taytay. FNF also held a Freedom Run last year in Bicol, Naga City, I think, then another one in Butuan City, Agusan del Norte.
I agree with this statement.
