The 2019 TIKIM Filipino Food Fun Run
, a one-of-a-kind 5K fun run or walk that celebrates Filipino culture and the value of giving back, returns on its second year for more fun treats and good eats. The run takes place on Saturday, June 8, 2019
at the Coyote Point Recreation Area, 1701 Coyote Point Drive in San Mateo
TIKIM is a Filipino word that means “to taste” and the 5k fun run, presented by TFC Live,
will take runners through a course with a Filipino food tasting station at each kilometer of the way. Each station is a celebration of different Filipino flavors. This year’s theme is Filipino street food. The street food scene in the Philippines is arresting, as it is intriguing, and TIKIM hopes to capture the spirit and substance of Filipino street food with an offering that go the range from mild to hella
wild. One must see it, or rather, run the course to be blown away by the offerings.
This year’s theme for the one-of-a-kind 2019 TIKIM Filipino Food Fun Run is Filipino street food, and this infographic provides tips on how to best enjoy TIKIM’s various food offerings.

After the run, the fun continues with a post-run picnic that features more Filipino food – from savory to sweet, stage activities with performances by Trace Repeat
, a Bay Area soul and funk band from Oakland, and guitar virtuoso Jinx Jones and The Kingtones
. There will also be the much-awaited balut-eating contest
plus other classic Filipino reunion games.
Aside from being a fun run, TIKIM is also a philanthropic event. According to ABS-CBN Global Head of Events Ricky Resurreccion, “It is a way to give back, as part of the proceeds of the TIKIM Filipino Food Fun Run registration will be donated to the feeding program of Bantay Bata (the Child Watch program of ABS-CBN Foundation International).”
By registering and joining the fun run, each adult runner registration provides meals to six (6) * undernourished children in the Philippines.
Runners will receive a commemorative TIKIM
t-shirt, race bib, an acknowledgement letter with the runner’s donation to ABS-CBN Foundation International (for adult registrants), and access to the TIKIM Post-Race Picnic.
The 2019 TIKIM Filipino Food Fun Run promises to be a great event for the whole family. Aside from the 5K fun run (or walk), there are various food treats, entertainment and games to be enjoyed by everyone.
Aside from food trucks and vendor booths, the post-run picnic will have entertainment, and other fun activities for the whole family.
