Ground Zero Run

The Ground Zero Run for Humanity is a charity race that simulates some conditions rescuers may experience when carrying aid to disaster victims.

The third edition of the Ground Zero Run for Humanity was held last Sunday. The charity race is about simulating some of the conditions that rescuers experience when carrying aid to disaster victims in times of natural calamities, war, famine, or earthquakes.

This means the participants will have to run through the race route on a variety of different terrains, while carrying supplies survivors need, like rice.

This is seen from the three different categories to push that message forward: the 1km Dash for Humanity, where an adult and child run together, with a relief pack weighing 1kg to simulate child survivors carrying relief supplies after a disaster.

The non-competitive 5km Relief Aid Challenge requires the runners to carry a heavier, 7kg pack, while the 10km Race Against Time challenge encourages runners to complete the course within 80 minutes to showcase the time-crunch survivors need to complete their objectives, with the option of carrying a pack if requested.

Racers tried to figure out the easiest way to carry the relief pack, some choosing to walk the route while hugging the pack, while others chose to run with the pack on their shoulders.

All the rice packs were collected at the end of the event to help local families in need. Donation booths and food banks were available so people could donate money and non-perishable foods to move the humanitarian effort.
