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.
