OBLATION RUN
 
- embodiment of the spirit of freedom and defiance, a harmless prank-cum-publicity stunt turned protest statement. It is also a tribute to manhood, as this poem, The Ritual Dance of the Brave
 
     Oblation run is a yearly APO activity held every December 16, wherein showcases APO fraternity members roaming running nude and naked in University of the Philippines campuses...
     This activity was started in the year 1977 ( The First Ever APO Oblation Run ). When an APO member first ran naked in the A.S. lobby to promote a play the fraternity was sponsoring called "Hubad na Bayani," or "Naked Heroes", Rolly Abad the said member was killed in a rumble few months later. In comemoration with this, the run was held yearly with noble themes every year... It was said that Oblation run was just for fun or just an expression of insanity but in a closer look inside it you'll able to learn that it's not just an ordinary run, but its an expression of protest againts the system.
     The ceremory starts with the assembling at the APO tambayan, where the runners will give them the traditional fraternity salute, in this process also do's and don't's were instructed to the runners... and presto... to the run.
