The ultimate 5k running and music festival drew nearly ten thousand runners when it first made waves in the Philippines last year. This year, The Music Run™ by Philam Vitality returns to amp up an equally large or even larger crowd with everyone’s favorite hits are playing.
In partnership with music streaming service Spotify, The Music Run™ by Philam Vitality really rock the event area and Music Runners™ ran, danced and partied across a 5km route comprising of five 1km Music Zones of Rock, Pop, Old School, Hip Hop and Dance. Lined with over 120 concert-quality speakers pumping 150,000 watts of music the entire way, The Music Run™ by Philam Vitality is the world’s loudest 5k fun run. The soundtrack for run was voted for by the participants through a bespoke online music app developed in partnership with Spotify®.
In each of the Music Zones, Music Runners™ were treated to special interactive activities: From cool, cold pyrotechnics in the Philam Asset Management Inc Rock Zone;
a tunnel with hanging balls at the BPI-Philam Pop Zone; a stage featuring AirAsia crew lip syncing to the top-voted songs with an electric “Superbowl” performance in the AirAsia Old School Zone with a chance to win exclusive flights and prizes; photo opportunities with graffiti artists, dancers and photo walls in the Hip Hop Zone; to a mobile disco tunnel with glowing lights in the Philam Vitality Dance Zone.
Crossing the finish line is a great achievement again for me and to all music runner, because I know we do our best and i am feel happy when I received my cute finisher medal.

About The Music Run™
Launched in 2014, The Music Run™ is the ultimate 5k running and music festival. For music lovers, casual runners and fun seekers, The Music Run™ is more like a party than a run - it is the only 5km fun run that puts music at the heart. The Music Run™ empowers participants to control the soundtrack of the run by voting for their favourite songs in the build up to the Event. Voting is via a bespoke ‘Music Voting App’ and the songs with the most votes make the official run playlist.
On event day runners experience the world’s loudest 5k running course, known as ‘The Sound Track’. Over 120 speakers pump out the songs participants voted for across 5 interactive and music themed zones. The run ends with the ultimate after-run music festival. With music every step of the way, running never sounded so good.
