THIS year’s annual Million Volunteer Run: Virtual Bike and Run Edition, organized by the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) and RUNRIO, is extended to June 12, 2022.
The International Humanitarian Million Volunteer Run (MVR) 6: Virtual Bike and Run Edition is a fun virtual duathlon for cyclists and runners who want to get into shape or have a healthy lifestyle.
It is a non-competitive event that allows participants to finish their selected distance within a certain period, at their own pace, time, and venue. The event is open to Philippine and international participants.
The MVR 6 culminates in a face-to-face activity on June 12, 2022.
Compared to the pre-pandemic MVRs, in which participants run together on the same date, time, and place, the MVR virtual edition allows participants to run or bike anytime during the race period.
They are to record their activity through a GPS-tracking app or watch and upload their results to their account dashboard.
The MVR is a way for the public to join a community of volunteers who give their time, resources, and talents to help those made vulnerable by disasters and emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic and anticipated typhoons.
The MVR is organized with Holiday Inn Express, Ayala Foundation, Gatorade, Salonpas, and Pocari Sweat. To join, register at www.runrio.com.
