*** PRESS RELEASE ***

It won’t be a dog-day-afternoon, when dog enthusiasts and owners alike bask in the splendor of summer at Camp Aguinaldo in the second edition of Run for Aspins on May 6, 2017.

While the race continues to raise awareness on responsible pethood and pet adoption from Philippine Animal Rescue Team (PART), a significant part of the event will focus on dogs’ “other” purpose in life. We know that aside from being great pets and companions, dogs can be trained to become formidable soldiers, especially in the area of security and surveillance, peace and order and even extreme military operations.
Some K9 Units of the AFP have started to adopt aspins (mixed or unknown breed) because they have been found to be easy to train and maintain, compared to some purebred canines. Therefore “aspins” is no longer just your average asong kalye, but can become purposeful military working dogs.

The AFP-GHQ (in Camp Aguinaldo), in cooperation with counterpart K9 Units within the armed forces, will be holding a K9 Mini-Olympics and Exhibition again within this year’s race. The K9 display of talent will show the general public how K9s are trained to be part of the country’s line of defense. In addition, this will also demonstrate solidarity within the ranks, towards the direction and mandate of an institutionalized ARMED FORCES.

As in the 1st edition, registrants can either run solo on 10K or 5M distances, or choose a 2KM or 600M distance if they want to participate with their dogs.

To make the race even more exciting, the race shirt has been re-designed as a hoodie on top of the other race packet inclusions when you sign up for the race.

Each registration contributes as much as 20% to the rescue projects of the PART and to the building of additional K9 facilities in different AFP Units. If we can be more generous, our beneficiary-partners will also be setting up donation boxes in the Race Expo. For inquiries, they will all be on hand on race day to lend support, understanding and information.
