Sept. 22, 2013, SM MOA - a gun start signaled the start of the Run, but like an inevitable circumstance, the gun start seemed to call for the rain. It was a wet Sunday morning, but heavy rains and the inclement weather didn't stop the eager feet of the thousand runners who participated in the “Go Marino, Go! Healthy Body, Healthy Mind” 7th FAME Fun Run to step into the wet and slippery trails and make their way to the finish line.

The downpour was a challenge but a runner's spirit would never give up. With stamina and dedication, the winners emerged.
 
For safety purposes, the awarding ceremony and raffle of prizes was cancelled and was then held at the Seafarer Center located at 5th floor of SM Manila on 25 September 2013.
