On December 14, 2013, McDonald’s is inviting families to once again put their running shoes to good use and participate in this year’s McHappy Day Fun Run. Personally, I’m quite excited about that new Ronald McDonald Challenge! What an awesome idea!
Here are more details about the McHappy Day Fun Run. If you read until the bottom, you’ll get a chance to win 1 of 3 race kits I’m giving away.
McHAPPY DAY FUN RUN DISTANCES & REGISTRATION FEES
Kids aged 8 and under can participate in the 1k Catch Hamburglar dash, where they have to chase after the feisty McDonaldland character, for a registration fee of just Php350. Kids (aged 15 and under) and adults are also sure to have a great time with the 3k Run Grimace Run (open), the registration fee of which is Php450. For families of 4 who want to run together, the 3k McDonald’s Family Dash is definitely a great way to bond with the kids. Families can register for a fee of Php1, 400 for the entire family. Morning people aged 16 and above will like the 5k Early Birdie individual race for Php750. McDonald’s will also be adding a new race to the program—the Ronald McDonald Challenge, a 9k individual race for seasoned runners aged 16 and above. For a registration fee of Php950, participants will have to complete the 5k, 3k and 1k race categories to be able to complete the challenge. Finishers of each race category will receive special tokens, and the Top 3 finishers will each receive a prize.
McHAPPY DAY FUN RUN RACE KIT
Each McHappy Day Fun Run race kit includes: 1 race bib (4 bibs per race kit for the 3K family category), McHappy Day race route, activity area map and parking information, a breakfast meal stub, a baggage claim stub, a special McHappy Day singlet and McMoney worth 100 for fair activities.
FUN FOR THE FAMILY & FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Fun booths will also be available for families and individuals to enjoy after the race. Watch out for the different McDonald’s booths, face painting, balloon twisting and other fair activities, game areas for Ultimate Frisbee, basketball and football and Giant Happy Meal Boxes.
Proceeds of the event will go to the Ronald McDonald House disaster relief program, Bigay Tulong, currently responding to the needs of the victims of typhoon Yolanda.
