The Philippine Military Academy Alumni Assocation Inc (PMAAAI) will host the 5th Heroes Run on October 30, 2016, which will be simultaneously carried out in Metro Manila, Iloilo and Davao; and on November 13 in Baguio City.

The Heroes Run is an annual fundraising event benefiting families of fallen soldiers and those who were wounded in action. This activity aims to recognize the soldiers' heroism and raise public awareness about their situation. There are four categories for this year’s Heroes Run - 21KM, 10 KM, 5KM, and the 3KM.

Since it first started in 2012, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) has remained committed to the cause of Heroes Run. For two consecutive years the run is only held in Metro Manila. On the third year, the run was simultaneously held in Metro Manila and Iloilo. Davao was added as a new event location on the fourth year. Thousands of runners participate in the event yearly.

The proceeds of the event during the first two years were donated in the form of medical equipment to the Army General Hospital (AGH). On the third year the proceeds were used to provide sports equipment to Service Support Center, Army Support Command. On the fourth year, the proceeds were donated to AFPEBSO.
