Runners were being categorized according to age bracket with registration rate ranges at P200 - P250 per head, for 5 K run and the 20 K run, respectively, with free t-shirt each participant.

The event were attended with more than 30 participants from St. Johns and St. James School of Malaybalay, from the age bracket of 6 years old (pre-schoolers), graders and high school students. Even the school director, staff and  some of the teachers participated in that event. Though they were only quite in number but all of them were finishers of that run, a must be objective of the run. The school director, Mr. Noel Silan and Ms. Razel, ledres joined the 21K run, while the rest were in the 5K run. 

The event was started with a solemn prayer, in this photo.
Of course, the bestfriends were also present, from Reef, JB and Smirth, all from St. Johns School Grade IV students and members of the track and field club. The intention on why they formed this club is to create athletes in this line of sports.
