Takbo na! 24-Hour Renewal Run

Last May 16, at Planas Garden, Quezon Memorial Circle, Takbo na! 24 Hour Renewal Run had its soft launch. Attended by its two proponents, Fr. Robert Reyes - The Running Priest and Cesar Guarin - Global Runner, and all the volunteer members.  

The program started at 6am with performances by Edru Abraham/Kontra-gapi and Heber Bartolome, and talk by Health & Wellness Expert Dr. Marissa Guinto-Adviento). 

Takbo Na! 24-Hour Renewal happens every weekend, Saturday 5pm to Sunday 5pm, from May 17-18 to December 27-28, 2014. No registration fee, but you will fill out a registration form. The run is actually a relay run, and you can RUN or WALK at your own pace, as long as you are able. You don't need to run the entire 24 hours. What is more important is your long-term commitment to personal and social renewal. 

Run with Cesar Guarin, Global Runner and Fr. Robert Reyes, Running Priest and start the process of personal and social renewal through running and walking for 24 hours. Running as any transformative activity develops commitment, regularity, and consistency. 

From May 16, 2014 to May 9, 2016 (National Elections) we call on all Filipinos to create a KAPAaTIRAN, a running, walking, transformative community which will begin the process of change within oneself and society. As Cesar Guarin would say, “Ang pagbabago ng pamilya, pamayanan at lipunan ay nagsisimula sa sarili. Takbo Na.” 

Cynicism and despair over our corrupt and inept political system and culture can only be overcome through positive, creative and sustained action. Fr. Robert Reyes invites all, “Gawin ang nararapat at mabuti ngayon. Piliin, kausapin, patakbuhin na ang mga malilinis, may konsensiya at may kakayahan. Takbo Na!”

As the run and walk unfolds, artists like Heber Bartolome and Edru Abraham through music and percussion will appeal to the Filipino soul and awaken its love for the Mother Land and her people.

As we run or walk, let every stride or step be an unspoken prayer for change. Let the run stir up and spread the spirit of service and sacrifice in everyone. One day, as we complete yet another 24-hour run, we may at last smile and celebrate as runners and athletes would the completion of a life-changing and most memorable race.
