By: Open Access
Held at SM By the Bay, RunFest 2018 celebrates Takbo.ph's 10 years as an athletic community. The event included 5K, 10K, and 21K categories.
Twelve runners from Open Access joined the 21K category, the top three would be flown to New York City to compete in the TCS New York City Marathon this November 4.
Three of the company's fastest runners—Jeffrey Aspacio, Ma. Leonisia Cantos, and Clint Ortiz—will be representing the company in the Big Apple this year. This will be Aspacio's first time to participate in the prestigious New York marathon, while it will be the second for Cantos and Ortiz.
"Since our company's qualifier for the NY marathon last year," said first-time rep Aspacio, "I never stopped running." He added, "I anticipated the qualifier to be last April, so I did my best to be prepared by then."
Cantos, on the other hand, expressed her sheer delight in becoming part of the international marathon once again. "I'm speechless,"
"I told myself and wished that I can return to New York City and run at the marathon once again," said Cantos. "It's a good feeling that I'll be running again not just for myself but for a cause, as well."
One of the world's most prestigious running events, The TCS New York City Marathon is the biggest marathon in the world, with 50,000 finishers and spanning New York City's five boroughs.
Open Access has been sending representatives for the said sporting event since 2016 in support of Ryan's Run, a charity that helps persons with disabilities.
