adidas King Of The Road 2013 Opens Student Category

adidas-kotrThis year’s adidas King of the Road (KOTR) opens a new category exclusively for students 25 years old and under.

The new category is a 10K relay. It is set specifically to encourage the youth to get into a healthy, active lifestyle and to give them a chance to represent their alma mater. Students need to team up in pairs – one male and one female – with each running 5K to complete the total 10K distance.

Winners don’t just get individual cash prizes; they will also win prizes for their schools.

The adidas KOTR 2013 will be held on July 7, 2013 at Bonifacio Global City. Apart from the School Championship category, the race will include distances of 10K for the general public and 16.8K with Open and Closed categories. The Closed category is strictly for Filipinos while the Open category is for all nationalities.

The top male and female winners from the 16.8K Closed category will be hailed as the Philippines’ King and Queen of the Road and will represent the Philippines in the KOTR Southeast Asia Championship in Malaysia.
