The National Geographic Channel fires off their first Earth Day run last April 18 at the SM Mall of Asia Grounds in Pasay City. The event participated by around 5,000 runners including professionals, students, athletes, and celebrities.

Carrying the theme, “Inspiring the people to care about the planet”, the benefit run held events on 3k, 5k, and 10k including weekend runners and health buffs competing in the 5k run

The successful event was sponsored by PLDT My DSL, Schick, Western Union, Prudential Guarantee, Timex, Manila Water, Nike, and Multi Sports. Moreover, the said event is also for the benefit of the Design Against the Element (DATE), a global architectural design contest which aims to provide a solution to the problems on climate change.
