Select Toby’s (SM Manila, SM Fairview, EDSA Shangri-La) and Runnr outlets (Alabang Town Center, BHS, Trinoma) will accept all runners who wish to participate in the Manila leg of the inaugural PhilHealth Nationwide Run. Meanwhile, as an update to the initially publicized race information, Runnr ATC takes the place of Toby’s SM Southmall due to logistical limitations. All race registrants may claim their complete race packets at the Sports Loop, 3rd level of Robinson’s Galleria from February 2 to 11. Race participants can likewise register and claim their race kits in a one-stop race registration facility at the Sports Loop throughout the same period.

Last year, they offered us flag football and this year runners who will join the 5K category will run in a special route with “Fun Tasks”. They did not tell us last night at the launch what “Fun Tasks” will be given to runners. I just hope that whoever prepared these tasks do not think that solving quadratic equation is fun. Or worse, we could do such fun things like finding when train x will meet train y given their speed is z. I think I would prefer being tasked to lick my elbow than to do math. :)

But I’m still excited to join the 5K for the extra fun. And yes, doing the task is the perfect excuse to catch my breath and have a bit of rest in between runs.

This race is dubbed, “Ready, Set, Explore!” Are you ready?

Take note ha, BGC, no more na TheFort. They are rebranding na.

Oh and this year’s raffle prize is an Asian Cruise for 2. I was so sure I’d win last year’s raffle…maybe this time, I will win it. I am telling the universe now, can I please win in the raffle. Only BGC runners who finish the race and are present during the raffle draw will qualify for the raffle. So stay, enjoy and wait to hear your name when they raffle off the prizes. Or wait … no go home na after the race agad pala hehehe better chance for me to win.

Registration open until November 18 at Riovana Katipunan and Global City or Toby’s MOA and Trinoma.

Register na and let’s all have a good time!

But wait there’s more …. this fun run is actually just part of a bigger event. On 23-25 November 2012, BGC will be having the PassionFest 2012. Please visit on BGC on these dates for loads of fun and suprises.

RUPM – Ready to run a bit on C5?

25 Oct

20121025-072347.jpg
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’S WE RUN RACE SERIES RETURNS TO MANILA
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.
