Run BGC 2011, a Multi-sport Event?

November 18, 2011

Yes! You read it right! Run BGC 2011 will be a multi-sport event. Aside from the run event, you have the option to join a simple flag football competition. You start with the run portion of the race, move to an individual play of catching a football, defending your flags after which you will have to shift back to running towards the finish line.

I’m not a fan of football, american or european or any kind of football sad to say. I mean I can probably watch it with hubby but I don’t think I can ever play it. Too bad as I was a strong kicker back in the day. Lost my right big toe due to that sport. Annnnndddd now back to the main topic…

The event will happen in November 27. Can you guess where? Of course in Bonifacio Global City! It is Run BGC after all! Details are below:

The Run BGC Flag Football Mechanics:

-This is an individual play where a runner would need to catch the football and defend his flags.

-Runner steps inside the flag football zone and gets fitted with a flagbelt. He cues up in his designated lane.

-A quarterback gives him the go signal to sprint to the 5-yard marker. Runner turns back to face the quarterback who will then throw him a football. Runner should try to catch the ball.

-After catching the ball, runner turns around and again sprints to the end zone while defending his flags from the defender/s.

Ruuunnnnnnnn! Defense!

-When he gets to the end zone, he then sprints back to the starting area with his flags and football to finish the course.

So for something different, I suggest for you to sign up. I’ll be doing the 5km with flag football 😀

See even kids can do it!

See you at the starting line!
