Gear up in your neons and reflectors as adobo Magazine, the country’s premier advertising and brand communications publication presents its third edition of adobo Run After Dark, the magazine’s trademark Halloween-themed night run and flagship event of the year.

This year’s incarnation sets the stage for an estimated 5,000 runners on October 20, 2012 at the SM Mall of Asia complex with assembly time scheduled after sundown. Runners are encouraged to add to the spectacle by donning their creepiest and craziest Halloween costumes, with cash prizes at stake for best in costume, aside from the top runners of the 5K, 10K and 15K race categories.

Unlike the usual day runs, adobo Run After Dark promises a unique experience for participants as they are treated to all-night festivities after completing their feat, with live music, fireworks displays, and free flowing beer!

Run, party and light up a home as part of the proceeds from registrations will benefit the My Shelter Foundation, headed by social entrepreneur Illac Diaz. Their pet project, ‘Isang Litrong Liwanag’ was also launched at last year’s adobo Run After Dark and has since gained worldwide recognition and support from the United Nations for the grassroots lighting program.
