Manila counterpart of the Hillsborough-Anfield Run

On April 15, 1989, ninety-six (96) football fans went to watch a football game.

They didn't come home.

The match was a FA Cup Semi-final between Nottingham Forest and Liverpool, played at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield, England.

Here is a report of what unfolded, courtesy of YouTube:



In honor of the 96 people who did not come back, six fans are going to run the 76 miles from Hillsborough to Anfield on April 12-14. (UK Time)





KOPinoys are doing our share, by running 15k (9+6) This Sunday at the UP Academic Oval.
