Registration can be made online at or at Minatchom Atdao Pavilion at 5:30am on race day. The race will start at 6:30am.

“Runners and walkers are welcome to join,” Abragan said.

Participants can enter one of the seven age categories and the Top 3 from each age division will receive medals. The age categories are as follows: 14 and under, 15 to 19, 20 to 29, 30 to 39, 40 to 49, 50 to 59, and 60 and above.

Registration fee is $10 per person and all participants will get raffle tickets with the drawing to be held after the race.

“A portion of the proceeds will go to support our April 2019 mission trip to Pohnpei where are going to send a team of youth, young adults, and adults,” Abragan stated.

“We hope to inspire healthy living in the community and to share the message that our bodies are gifts from the Lord,” Abragan shared. “We also hope to share the message of hope and eternal life found only in Jesus Christ.”

Before the race kicks off, Unshakable will be jamming out some tunes starting at 5:20am. Unshakable is a newly established band made up of vocalists and musicians from Grace Christian Assembly.

Abragan also mentioned that Bishop Ferdie Cabiling from the Philippines and nicknamed “running pastor” because of his passion for running and for the Lord, will be among the special guests at the event.
