About the race
The AffiniTea Brown Race Marathon is inspired by the Filipino value of patriotism (Pagiging makabayan). Brown Race can have many meanings – it can mean Lahing Kayumangi, Angat Lahi, or Takbo ng Lahing Kayumangi. This event aims to create awareness about the identity and origin of the Filipino race – our ancestry and rich civilization before the Spanish colonizers.
This year’s theme is “Nurturing God’s Love, Core Gifts & Family Relations”. There will be 6 distance categories with names based on Filipino values that are said to be keys to success – 3K Dream, 5K Passion, 10K Potential, 16K Good Habit, 21K Character and 42K Purpose.
