Billed as “The ultimate safety and fuel efficiency reality challenge”, the Petron SafeRun IV is a road safety advocacy presented by the Petron Corporation. Some 280 participants ran the route originating from The Laus Group Event Center in San Fernando, Pampanga on March 9, and finishing the following day at the start point, creating a loop for the 200km and 600km categories.
Different from the usual motorcycling endurance competition, SafeRun promotes safe riding and observance of traffic rules and regulations, especially speed limits, to highlight fuel efficiency. Categorized by their displacements, participants and their motorcycles are to stop and fuel up at designated Petron stations that act as checkpoints. Competitors who log the best fuel efficiency numbers for their respective categories are declared the winners.
Those participants who violate traffic rules and speed limits, or fail to arrive at designated checkpoints, are demerited or disqualified altogether.
Below are some results from the Petron SafeRun IV Challenge:
