Let's Join Metro's 40th Anniversary FunRun

The Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. is hosting another fun run, its first since the pandemic, on November 6, starting at 3:30 a.m. from the Ayala Center Cebu Terraces. Dubbed Metro @40 Ruby Fun Run, the foot race is part of the activities of the ever-growing Cebuano retailer’s 40th-anniversary celebration that will kick off on October 4.

Since its humble beginnings as a two-story department store and supermarket in 1982, Metro has transformed into a premiere homegrown retailer, serving the needs of customers through its three store formats – department store, supermarket, and hypermarket. To date, Metro has a total of 62 stores across the Visayas and Luzon. Metro shares this happy milestone with its customers by treating them to exciting promos and activities such as the fun run.

“We wanted to do an event where we can have fun with our customers and, at the same time, give back to the community as P50,000 of the proceeds will be given to Vicsal Foundation which grants scholarships to financially-challenged students,” said Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. president and COO Manuel C.Alberto.

The full of fun and giveaways run will feature 3 categories —5K, 10K, and 21K — with big prizes for the top male and female runners. All registered runners will receive a token and have a chance to win in the raffle, games and challenges. Over P100,000 worth of prizes are to be given away.

The podium winners in the 21K race will receive P15,500, P12,000 and P9,000 in Metro gift certificates. The 10K winners will get P7,000, P5,000 and P3,500 while the top 3 in the 5K will get P3,000, P1,500 and P1,000, respectively.

Interested runners are encouraged to register early as only 3,000 participants will be accommodated. Registration is ongoing at Metro Colon, Metro Mandaue, Metro Ayala, Super Metro Mambaling, Super Metro Lapu-lapu, and Metro Supermarket Banilad.

Registration fees are P500 for 5K; P700 for 10K; and P1,000 for 21K. Metro shoppers are entitled to a 50% discount on registration fees for a minimum spend of P2,000 single receipt at the supermarket inclusive of any participating items.
