It's been a long time in the making, but the Filipino edition of Running Man is finally hitting our screens this weekend.

Running Man Philippines will premiere on September 3. The show will air on Saturdays at 7:15pm and Sundays at 7:45pm on GMA Network.

GMA and the Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS) had been planning for the local adaptation of the South Korean network's hit reality game show even before the pandemic began.

The seven Filipino cast members flew to South Korea last month to shoot the series.

Based on the trailer, it seems that the Pinoy version of the series will also feature the comedic hijinks and competitive spirit seen in the original Running Man.

Here are the seven celebrity runners of the Philippine adaptation of Running Man:

  • Mikael Daez – GMA actor, host and vlogger, who also serves as the main host and "Captain" of Running Man Philippines.

  • Glaiza de Castro – Actress and musician who's been dubbed "Asia's Fire of Drama" for her roles as both main characters and villains in TV series and movies.

  • Ruru Madrid – Some consider Ruru GMA’s current Primetime Prince. He stars in the top-rated drama, action-fantasy series Lolong, which is still airing now.

  • Buboy Villar – An actor and celebrity vlogger who's best remembered for his role as the young Manny Pacquiao in the 2015 biopic Kid Kulafu.

  • Lexi Gonzales – Sings and performs on the Sunday noontime show All-Out Sundays. Her last drama was Love You Stranger which ended this month.

  • Kokoy De Santos – Actor who's known for his BL series and rom-coms, including the role of Gavreel in the BL series Gameboys. He's currently a main cast member of gag show Bubble Gang.

  • Angel Guardian – Angel is set to play her first teleserye lead role in Mano Po 3: The Flower Sisters. She starred opposite her Running Man PH co-star Kokoy De Santos in last year's Pepito Manaloto: Ang Unang Kuwento.
