26 March 2018 – LAOAG, ILOCOS NORTE – ColorManila, the number one fun run organizer in the Philippines, conquered Laoag’s Sand Dunes in Ilocos Norte with its sold out CM Paradise Run, which took place on March 24, 2018. The event was held in cooperation with Ilocos Norte’s 1st District Senior Board Member Ria Fariñas, who is a known fitness buff.
“Thrilled that this is finally happening in Ilocos!” Farinas was quoted as saying prior to the sold-out event. “Mark your calendars and start training with your family and friends for Colormanila’s Paradise Run at the Laoag Sand Dunes!”
According to ColorManila Vice President Justine Cordero, this is the first time that the fun run was brought to Laoag. She said, “We are very happy that this has become successful.”
“We are also thankful to our local government unit partners,” Cordero added. “We are looking forward to doing more events here in Laoag.”
The CM Paradise Run – Laoag leg gave the runners an early feel of a summer escape to the beach or to paradise with the various color stations adorned with palm trees, hammocks and garlands. This served as a perfect backdrop to their selfies with friends and family.
After the race, thousands of runners got to experience the freshest and newest mixes of the DJs at ColorManila’s trade mark CM Color Festival where color powder was thrown in the air as the participants danced and grooved to the music of DJs on stage. Atty. Karen Jimeno was one of those seen enjoying the run and also on stage during the CM Color Festival.
