OneLife Recap: CM Challenge – Clark

By Roace Alfonso

An explosion of colors filled the skies of Clark Parade Grounds during the Color Manila (CM) Challenge – Clark where over 85 participants from NLEX Corporation joined the 5-kilometer obstacle course race held last August 05, 2018.

Obstacles such as “Walk The Plank”, “Hurdle Before You Cuddle”, and “Crawl It Till You Make It” challenged the runners while color powder was sprayed on them. The participants were brought back to their childhood as they jumped, climbed, and slid on three (3) giant inflatables that were part of the course. All these challenges added life, excitement, and color to the run.

The climax of the event happened after the race as everyone gathered to witness a visual feast of color powder explosion. Accompanied with loud and upbeat music, everyone danced to their hearts’ content!

The event culminated with an onstage photo opportunity for all participants who were each given a finisher’s medal as a memento. But more than the physical recognition of their success, everyone went home with a happy heart, stories to share, and a feeling of accomplishment.

We asked some of the participants regarding their “CM Challenge – Clark” experience, and here’s what they have to say:

“First Color Run experience and First Fun run with obstacles experience. It’s also memorable because I got to bond with my officemates. Enjoy! Hope to have more of this experience from the company’s #OneLife program! Thank you!!! :)”

“I love the color manila challenge clark and we enjoyed it so much! Adrenaline rush from start to finish!! mala-mini American Ninja Warrior ang peg! Thank you po at sa uulitin!! #onelife #ilovecolormanila”

“It was my first time to join this kind of run and I really enjoyed the obstacles, the festive atmosphere, the people I’m with and the venue itself. It was very relaxing and hype at the same time.”

Kudos to all participants and see you again on our future events! For those who were not able to join, worry not as we have lots of upcoming #NLEXOneLife programs in store for NLEX Employees!
