RUPM – Ready to run a bit on C5?

25 Oct

In the dim dark past, a race made us run on C5, we came out via BGC and went in via Bayani Rd. The route was “interesting”. The “breeze” from the fast cars and trucks, I could have definitely done without. Let’s just say that I dont think I’ll ever have C5 as part of my favorite race route.

This Sunday, I believe that RUPM runners will have an improved experience of C5.

Runrio said that they have blocked off 2 lanes for runners, 1 lane to screen the runners from the vehicles and left only one lane for motorists. No need to run as well in the service road. Yey! And close coordination with the mayor of Taguig was also completed to further secure this section of the route.

And now fellow runners, they have done their job, we must also be reaponsible. Running 101 okay:

1. Make sure the gear you choose will not only be fierce and fabulous for the photos but should also have reflectorised bits and bobs so that you can easily be seen in the dark.

2. Speaking of dark, if you are not that comfortable with it or worried that some areas that will be dark, consider carrying a flashlight or wearing headlamp.

3. Always be aware of your surroundings.

4. Hydration. If the past you find that they lack water etc bring your own na rin to be sure.

5. Have a funtabulous time!

Oh and one last thing!!!

Coach Rio would like to remind everybody to be on time. 15minutes after gunstart, the ambulance and Runrio vehicles will start. Outrun them! :o)

Nike WE RUN 2012

7 Oct


We Run MNL 10K inspires and connects runners globally with Nike+

PHILIPPINES, OCTOBER 2012 – Nike’s We Run race returns to Manila for a second year, to inspire, motivate and connect runners around the world. On December 2, 2012, Filipino runners will be part of the global We Run race movement, which will see a total of 395,500 runners from 34 cities participating—establishing a new global community of runners through Nike’s most connected race series using the innovative Nike+ technology. The We Run race series kicked off on September 1 in Prague, Czech Republic, and will conclude on December 15 in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

Nike’s We Run Manila 10K race will energize the streets of Pasay City with the 13,000 high-octane runners expected to make tracks all over the SM Mall of Asia’s grounds. Set against the remarkable view of Manila Bay, the initial stretch of the race will let runners pass through the commercialized area of the Mall of Asia with the SMX Convention Center and the latest icon of the area, the eye-shaped SM Bay City Arena. Runners are set to leave urban commercial scenery and head towards the fields along Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard. Closing in on the halfway point of the race, runners will then pass the upcoming Belle Casino, a gold complex glistening in the morning sun. As they take a turn on Pacific Avenue and race past the same landmarks, runners will come upon the iconic ferris-wheel along Seaside Boulevard that marks the final kilometer to the finish line. The panoramic run would not be complete without an engaging en route entertainment featuring some of Manila’s top musical acts.

Meeting the runners at the finish line is the Race Village that will offer an array of services. Runners can expect to be pampered with massage booths and get recharged at any of the refreshment stalls while being entertained by the energetic musical line-up.

“Nike’s We Run race is the celebration of running across the world, the culmination of every runner’s dedication and commitment to train harder, defy expectations and push their bodies’ limits. Nike aims to revolutionize the running experience, by allowing runners to inspire, motivate and connect with other runners globally through the Nike+ Technology”, shared Sanjay Gangopadhyay, Marketing Director of Nike South East Asia. “With the second edition of the We Run race in Manila, Nike envisions Filipinos, the youth in particular, to further move the local running scene forward by leading the active lifestyle movement.”

To get race-ready, Nike will organize four training sessions focusing on proper running techniques and tips. Runners will also be able to test out the Nike+ Running app (available on iOS and Android), and try out the season’s latest running products. These clinics will be led by podiatrists and Nike Training Club instructors to further educate individuals on how they can reach their potential as runners.

Runners are encouraged to add to the spectacle by donning their creepiest and craziest Halloween costumes, with cash prizes at stake for best in costume, aside from the top runners of the 5K, 10K and 15K race categories.

Target : 2 hours @ Rexona Run 2012

23 Jul

Not my target. I just want to finish 5K strong and happy. But if you wanna run in 2 hours or less, here are some info that you will find useful.

1. RACE ROUTES. Familiarize yourself with the route. If you are running the relay, take note of the transition area. Maybe your partner can wave a flag or pompoms so you can easily spot each other. :D



2. VOLUNTEER PACERS. Click here and visit Kulitrunner’s blog for the complete list of volunteer pacers.

3. 2 hours. Did you finish in 2:01 in your last race? Oh that elusive 2 hours! For the Rexona Run 2012, you might want to try running with a pacer or a pace group.

If you are running the individual category, this is the guy you need to pace with. Meet Rod Sollesta. One fast dude who will try and bring you across the finish line in 2hours. To check him out, you may visit his blog, RUNdomSHOTS.

7-Eleven Run 800 : big day for Elites and pilits

16 Jul


Got the PR material below for general info. Pero listed below are a few reasons why Pinoy Elites and pilits (like me) would love the concept of this race:

1. Dream come true, thank you 7-Eleven!!! Top 3 Filipino male and female runners in the 21K category will be sponsored to join the Macau International Marathon on December 2012. Best race prize ever! It’s time for our top elite runners to shine in the international scene. It’s ON!

2. SHOW ME THE MONEY. Lately, races have been marketing events. Petiks lang sila. I hope that the cash prize offered by 7-Eleven will bring out the fast and the furious and make this a truly competitive road race.


3. NEW ROUTE. Have you ever been to Cavitex? I haven’t. I’d like to check out this new playground.

4. Revolutionary Registration. Trust the number 1 convenience store to offer the most convenient way of registering for the race.

5. 7-Eleven Gives Back. I ran for ek, clavoom, achoo-choo, etc. but never really know what happened to it. This time they are promising a total of Php800K worth of food and medical supplies to the top 3 cities we will vote for (limited to cities with 7-eleven branches).

Event Diary

July 6 – Aug 9, 2012 : Online Reg

To register, visit http://www.run711.com/. To complete registration, runners can pay reg fees at the 7-Eleven nearest them. Take note of the 7-Connect number and pay at any 7-Eleven store within 24 hours. They are open 24/7, convenient eh! Race Kits can be claimed on the date indicated on the receipt, and from the same store where payment has been made. And there is one near most of us. We even have one in the office.

August 10, 2012 : Last Day of Payment

August 26, 2012 : Race Day

ABOUT THE RACE. After Tour 700, the Philippines’ biggest bike race event held at the SCTEX last May 13, 2012, 7-Eleven now celebrates the opening of its 800th store with RUN 800 on August 26, 2012 along the CAVITEX, more known as the Coastal Road, with assembly at the Aseana City in Parañaque.

Runners joining the 10k,15k or 21k half-marathon will enjoy this course set along the coastal road – CAVITEX, wherein some of its lanes will be closed just for this race. Those joining in the 3k and 5k categories can look forward to an organized race course along Macapagal Ave. This is made possible with 7-Eleven’s system of allowing SELF-SELECTED WAVE STARTS, enabling them to run with people with the same skill or speed (or with friends!). To make this run more exciting, the top 3 per age category will receive medals. Top 3 Filipino males and females in the 21k will be sponsored to join the Macau International Marathon on December 2012.

SUPPORT YOUR CITY. Run 800: Takbo para sa Kalusugan will award feeding and medical assistance to the top 3 cities you voted for.
