My alumni association is going to organize a running event again on 31st July 2016. Hence, I need to help them to distribute the flyers. I found that we have running events on every Saturday and Sunday. I really don't know how many people like to run. Or many families like to join running event? Do you like running event?

Yes. There are many sponsors now. When it was the first time we organized running event, it was hard to find sponsors. But, this year, it is very easy. We just need a call to the sponsors.

In the Philippines this is a very common event. There's a lot of participants who would love to join this event. I have friends and relatives who even go to Singapore for a big running event. I, on the other hand, can't run anymore because of a knee injury but instead of running, i join the riding event. It's bicycle event.

@hoong143 yeah it's more of my thing and my family's too but we prefer the race since we don't do slow rides.

I like to join walking event, not running events. I think many running events have a non-competitive fun walk or fun jog event for families with kids. Many families treat those events as family day. They will take photos, eat and drink and generally have a great time.

Yes. Many people like walking event. That's why the running event have a category called fun run. Then most of the people will walk in the fun run.

In fact I am not good at running at all, especially for long distance. It is OK for me to walk for a long way, but I can't run a lot since I think I will have a trouble after that. I have an university friend who enjoys running and this is her hobby only. So far I know she has joined the international marathon in USA, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. If there is an international marathon held in your country, perhaps she will find some time to run there

If you want to join now, what is the distance of run do you like? I know there are many people like 10KM, half marathon and full marathon. I like 5KM run only.

@hoong143 I have no idea as to the distance because I haven't tried running. I'll begin with the shortest one.
