Tampa, FL

Imagine a 5K fun run course with a Filipino food tasting station at each kilometer of the way. Each station is a celebration of different Filipino tastes, featuring matamis (sweet), maanghang (spicy), maalat (salty) and maasim (sour). As you cross the finish line, a food festival featuring favorite, popular and traditional Filipino dishes awaits. Open to all ages, gender and races, TFC (The Filipino Channel) wants to bring to Tampa the excitement that Filipino cuisine – traditional or fusion - is generating all over the world. TIKIM Filipino Food Fun Run is a celebration of everything about family, fitness, fun and Filipino food flavors! It is sure to delight every member of the family, and sure to satisfy any curious foodie.

Not only will your run be fun, but it’s also a way to give back, as part of the proceeds of the TIKIM Fun Run registration will be donated to the feeding program of Bantay Bata (the Child Watch program of ABS-CBN Foundation International). Each Adult Runner registration provides meals to 10 malnourished children in the Philippines.
