Nationals dominate Microsoft 8-mile race The Philippine Star >> News >> Sports: "Over 2,000 runners joined the race in spite of the rainy weather where all finishers were treated to a raffle for an HP Mini Note laptop, HTC Windows Mobile phone, and Microsoft Zune and other minor prizes.

Kids and their families who joined the race frolicked in the giant inflatable slides put up by Microsoft and partook of foods from various concessionaires in the Fort Bonifacio Global City.
