For those just hearing of this event, the Metro Walk To A Million (MWAM) is one of the Metro Card Club’s annual homegrown events. Starting off with a ₱1.5M guarantee in 2019, the event’s tremendous popularity witnessed the prize pool reach ₱5.3 Million (~$95K) in 2023. With record-breaking numbers seen at other Metro festivals this year, the 2024 MWAM is expected to do the same.
