Isuzu Shake, Rattle and Run, 31 October 2008

Halloween (or Hallowe’en) is not really a typical Filipino tradition. In the 19th century, Irish and Scottish immigrants brought this to North America and was embraced as a holiday celebrated on October 31. It includes activities such as trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o’-lanterns, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies. More often than not, tabloids and television programs feature scary or ghost stories.

Pinoys, on the other hand, celebrate this in time for All Saints Day and All Souls Day with a twist of fun. This year, Isuzu Philippines and Energizer sponsor the Isuzu, Shake, Rattle and Run, the first 5km Halloween night run at the Fort. Exciting prizes await finishers as well as the Best Male and Best Female Costume winners.

As a spectator, I’ve watched runners whizzed by as runaway brides, native-guy-on-the-run, Cupid, a guy and a lady clad in bathrobe and towel just like when one is taking a shower, fallen angels, Chef, la la la. It was really fun!

Congratulations to Rio for winning the Best Male Costume category.

Here are some photos which I grabbed from Doc Gigi’s, Wilbert’s and Vimz’ sites. Thanks to all of you!

  1. Hi Roselle. Thank you so much for everything during my stay. You\’re a wonderful person and enjoyed the conversations.My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Please take care and have a good week ahead!


  2. Hi, Wayne. Nice of you to drop by before leaving the country. Thank you for the prayers. I enjoyed our conversations. I couldn\’t do that during the NB run because my legs were killing me. Not an easy 25k for me, especially, not having enough rest and sleep. Been a tiring week before the NB race. I still look forward to your visit next year. Have a safe flight back to SF.
