The value of good health comes with a price. This is not a categorical statement because we can still have good health if we will be active and dynamic with our life. One way of getting active is by attending marathon events because running is a form of exercise that removes unwanted fats and toxins from our bodies. So get up and run and shed off those unwanted fats.
This coming summer, Adidas will again hold a running event known as the Adidas King of The Road 2011. It will be on October 23, 2011. 20,000 runners are expected to attend the said big event. The venue will have to be big in order to accommodate such a number of participants. The venue will be at the Bonifacio Global City, The Fort.
The Adidas King of The Road will have 3 race categories. The 5K, 16.8K, and 21K running events for their participants. The 10K category was replaced by the 16.8K.
