Last Chance to Register for Color Manila Glitter Run on October 22

When it comes to fun, pressure-free runs, I always turn to Color Manila’s roster of events. Their upcoming CM Glitter Run this Sunday, October 22 at the SM Mall of Asia Grounds is bound to be another good one featuring their latest spin on the fun run: a glitter station!

Color Manila Glitter Run on October 22

With 3K, 5K, and 10K untimed distances, runners will go through a glitter shower spree as well as a foam station on top of the usual color stations that are the signature for Color Manila runs. Post-run, don’t go home just yet because the party is just getting started with the Color Festival, an extravaganza of color powder and music.

Color Manila VP Justine Cordero says, “Just when you think you’ve seen and experienced it all, CM Glitter Run comes in and combines everything that you’ll ever love to have in a fun run. Glitter, foam, color powders, retro music, and more!”Β  Continue reading “Last Chance to Register for Color Manila Glitter Run on October 22”

Takbo Contra AbuZo on November 19

It was the International Day of the Girl yesterday, and this reminded me of the importance of raising young women in a nurturing, supportive environment so they can reach their full potential. One of the avenues to do so is to ensure girls grow up safe, free from violence. We have come a long way in the fight for women’s equality, but there is yet more work to be done.

Zonta Club of Pampanga, an NGO which advocates Anti-Violence Against Women and Children will hold the first Takbo Kontra AbuZo on November 19 at CDC Clark Parade Grounds, Pampanga. This fun run aims to raise funds for the advocacy, raise awareness to end violence against women, and of course promote health and wellness. Continue reading “Takbo Contra AbuZo on November 19”

Hope 2017: Run for Children with Special Needs

Races that benefit the welfare of children are close to my heart. So when one of my blog readers messaged me about the Hope 2017: Run for Children with Special Needs, I knew for certain I wanted to post about it here in the hopes that some of you would like to run for a great cause.

The Hope Run this year will be held in two cities: Manila on December 2 (SM Mall of Asia), and Cebu on December 10 (Ayala Business Park) with distances of 1.5K, 5K, 10K, and 21K. You can run in the standard race kit, or wear your best hero costume and cosplay through the run. The “standard race kit” actually includes a singlet, cape, and hero’s mask already! All finishers will also receive a finisher’s medal upon completion. (Race timing is only available for 10K and 21K as this is a non-competitive event.)Β  Continue reading “Hope 2017: Run for Children with Special Needs”

Road to Angkor Wat, Week 1

It still feels quite unreal to me that I’ve been invited to run an iconic race by the end of the year. A few months ago, Manulife reached out and asked if I’d be interested in running the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon on December 3. A few of my running friends have done this event, which is one of two long-distance races held in Angkor, Cambodia. What other answer could I have given except for “Yes”?

Nutrilite Health Run 2017 in Manila and Davao

I began racing at a time when P500 was considered expensive for a 10K, but those who started before me can remember when P250 was already considered high-end with giveaway finisher shirts. Races priced like that are hard to come by these days, which is what makes the Nutrilite Health Run stand out.

With race dates in Manila (October 15 at SM Mall of Asia) and Davao (October 29 at SM Ecoland Davao), the Nutrilite Health Run is on its fifth year of providing a venue of runners for all abilities to celebrate fitness and physical achievement without breaking the bank. Distances 1K, 5K, and 10K are priced at P250 while the 21K is priced at P850.

Here’s what you get when you register: a race shirt, race bib, and loot bag. If you’re registered for the 21K, you’ll also get a timing chip for use during the race, and a finisher’s shirt and medal after you cross the finish line. Continue reading “Nutrilite Health Run 2017 in Manila and Davao”

Sun Life Aquathlon on September 17

For many aspiring triathletes, aquathlons are a first step into the realm of multisport. For experienced triathletes, aquathlons are a great way to get the multisport fix and race close to home (because there’s no bike leg to close roads for, haha).

The Sun Life Aquathlon on September 17, 2017 to be held at the Makati Aquatic Sports Arena and the University of Makati track oval features an “Aqua Lite” category for newbies consisting of a 200-meter swim and 3-kilometer run, and the “Aqua Full” category for more experienced athletes with its 400-meter swim and 5-kilometer run.

For athletes who prefer to race in a tag team, a relay category is available so you can either do the swim or the run.

Bike King Philippines has a long and accomplished resume of races conducted, so you can rest assured that all you’ll need to do on the day is show up with your things, be able to swim and run your respective distances, and follow the arrows and directions.

Registration is still open at the Bike King Philippines website until slots last. Individual race fee is at P3,150 and relay race fee is at P4,725.
