ING Bank Philippines Running 20

The half-mary entry fee usually hovers around P750.  Adidas KOTR went beyond that by charging participants with P850.  And if you think that's the most expensive 21k race...think again.  A fun run dubbed as "ING Running 20" has broken that record

Welcome to the world of P1,000 registration fee!

What's more interesting is that the half-mary category isn't your typical 21.1km race.  It is only 20 kilometers.  Yup, that's right.  It's only 20 kilometers.  And I bet you already know the reason why. Clue: A Race To Build 20 Homes To Celebrate Our 20 Years

Another thing that is unique about this race is that a guaranteed entry to the ING NYC Marathon 2011 will be raffled exclusively to the participants of the 20k finishers.  I am guessing that's the reason why the registration fee is so high is because it covers the $11 application fee.  I'm not sure though if the 0.2% chance of being drawn is better than applying online thru NYCMarathon

Interested to join?  Here's the race details

In celebration of 20 years in the Philippines, ING Bank in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, will build the 2nd ING Village in Calauan, Laguna as part of the "BayaniJuan sa Southville 7" community. ING has already sponsored 23 more houses as proof of their commitment. But we need more help.

To help achieve this ambitious goal, ING Manila is organizing a special running event to raise funds for the construction of 20 homes in Laguna at P90,000 each. The ING Village will be a part of a solid community with access to education and livelihood opportunities.

The future residents are the informal settlers along the Pasig River . Not only will you help build a home, you will also help save the environment by revitalizing a historic and vital source of water. Run for a worthy cause and together let's make a difference one home at a time.
