It’s the 40th anniversary of Voltes V in the Philippines and we are celebrating it with Voltes V Run Manila 2018!
The first of its kind in the world, Voltes V Run Manila 2018 will be held at Mc Kinley West, Bonifacio Global City on February 10, 2018. Registered runners will get an exclusive Voltes V-themed race shirt, race bib, drawstring bag and a finisher’s medal at the end of the 5-km especially themed route, designed to make fans drift into the world of their favorite anime series.
Voltes V is a super robot anime series that first aired in the Philippines from May 1978 until April 1979. It gained such a strong following that it re-aired several times in 1986, 1999, 2005, and this year, allowing it to continuously gain more and more followers across several generations. In fact, Voltes V is even more popular here in the Philippines than in Japan, with a record viewership of 58%!
Aside from the running event with fun obstacle courses, registered runners will enjoy an exciting program at the venue that includes raffle and special prizes from sponsors. They will also witness the grand performance of the Top Five Voltes V Karaoke Challenge winners along with Ms. Horie Mitsuko, the original singer of the opening song “Voltes V no Uta.”
