San Mateo Fun Run held to save watershed

BABY-boomers and members of Generation X like to be entertained by sporting events. While the younger Millennials are not satisfied with just watching, they need to participate as well.

With this in mind San Mateo Mayor Tina Diaz and Vice Mayor Paeng Diaz called on the public of San Mateo to help save their watershed and promote fitness and health as well by joining the San Mateo Fun Run for the Watershed.

Three thousand participants of the San Mateo Fun Run for the Watershed occupy every available space on General Luna Avenue, San Mateo’s main street which runs in front of the San Mateo Municipal Hall.
Three thousand answered the call and joined the fun run which is now on its sixth year. The run is part of San Mateo Festival which also happens on September every year.

The run aims to promote the preservation of the San Mateo Watershed and encourages residents of San Mateo to be health conscious by joining physical activities.

Vice Governor Rey San Juan Jr. came to represent Governor Nini Ynarez.

Richard Salano of team Bulacan ruled the Boys’ category as he finished the distance in 15 minutes nine seconds. Others who finished in the top five are Mark Anthony Oximar, Banaba, 15:24; Nikko Cortez, Ampid, 15:26; James Kevin Cruz, Ampid, 16:07; and Rodrigo Patag, Ampid, 16:21.
