Employees of UP Visayas gamely participated in the Christmas Fun Run on December 12, 2018 held at the Miagao campus.

Decked in Christmas inspired costume and motifs, runners dashed from the administration building grounds, made a U-turn at the end what is dubbed as “acacia road” and ran back to complete a 3.5K distance.

The top three fastest male and female runners were given cash prizes. For the male category, the winners are: father and son tandem Rufino and Benjie Tomaquin (1st and 2nd respectively); and Oliver Morano, 3rd. The winners of the female category are: Angeline Nuevaespaña, Ana Liza Subade and Sheila Balenia, (1st, 2nd and 3rd, respectively).

It was noted that all three female runners were regular attendees of the weekly Zumba sessions organized by the UPV Healthy Lifestyle and Wellness Committee (UPV WellComm) for UPV employees.
