TCS Clark Animo International Marathon 2020 moved to May
THE TCS Clark Animo International Marathon, a major international fitness event at Clark Global City, has moved its start date to May 10. Originally set for March 8, the race was reset by its organizers and stakeholders as a precautionary measure in view of the health and safety concerns surrounding the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
As the TCS Clark Animo International Marathon is a global sports tourism event, the need to undertake such steps to help protect the well-being of race participants from the health threat is more crucial than ever.
Organized annually by the De La Salle Alumni Association Pampanga chapter along with Clark Global City, the marathon, which has its courses certified by the International Association of Athletic Federations and the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (IAAF-AIMS), will be sponsored by leading technology company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) for the fifth year in a row. TCS has sponsored other prestigious global running events such as the TCS New York City Marathon, TCS Amsterdam Marathon, and Tata Mumbai Marathon.

Queries may also be e-mailed at TCSClarkAnimo@gmail.com or posted on their Facebook page, TCS Clark Animo International. Registered racers who cannot make it to the new race date will be automatically registered for next year’s race.
