The event gears for the quest on invigorating Naga City with live Pili Trees as part of the  the GrEET (Greening, Environment, Entrepreneurship and Tourism) program under the leadership of Mayor Bongat.

The program envisioned the whole city to have at least 30,000 live pili trees by the end of December, 2012.   Different runners from organizations and different individuals including the author joined the first Pilimania Extreme Plant Run.

Considering the fact that I rarely exercise or run, i thought it would just be best for me to run the 3K, well i guess you could not say it was really running, the given fact that i am walking half way to take pictures of the participants.  I also wish that i can find a running mate soon.

I interview the 21K female winner (which i also forgot the name) , she was already 51 years old and she begin running just last year.  She was inspired and since then she was joining different running events held within the city.

Portion of  the registration amount will be allocated on the Pilimania program and the proposed Theme Park that will be build at the Naga City Coliseum.

 The ground breaking ceremony aims for the sustainable development of Pili industry as part of the tourism and development program of the city.

I hope this project would eventually give way for a greener Naga City and a hope that people can be fully aware of the many uses of Pili.
