RUNRIO LAUNCHES THE MOST PREMIERE RUNNING

SERIES IN THE COUNTRY

RUNRIO Trilogy Series 2017 promises to be the most exciting ever

Manila, Philippines – April 28, 2017 – Running coach Rio dela Cruz of RUNRIO Events, Inc. announces the start of this year’s most premier running series in the country – the RUNRIO Trilogy 2017 at the Okada Manila in Paranaque City.

The series is expected to attract an average of 12,000 running enthusiasts per leg from all over the country. The first of the three legs is set for June 25 and features a half-marathon run including 10Km and 5Km race. This will be followed by the second leg on August 13, where it will showcase Rio’s very own Afroman distance which is a 32Km run, with shorter distances – 21Km, 10Km and 5Km. The 32Km is considered by runners as the ideal race for first-timers who aim to finish their very first full marathon.

The third and final leg will cap the series on October 1 with a full marathon of 42Km that also includes 21Km, 10Km, and 5Km race distances. Runners who complete the highest distance of all 3 races will be honored at the RUNRIO Trilogy Awards Night.

The very first RUNRIO Trilogy was held in 2010 with the primary purpose of providing a progressive running program for those who want to finish a full marathon. This year’s RUNRIO Trilogy, will also feature popular actor and running enthusiast, Dingdong Dantes as the event ambassador.

“We are excited to launch the RUNRIO Trilogy race series because there are many running enthusiasts out there who are looking forward to this event. This year marks the 7th year of RUNRIO Trilogy, whose main objective is to educate runners to train and race progressively,” said award-winning actor Dantes. “Aside from this, part of the proceeds of this year’s race series will go to YesPinoy Foundation to support the organization’s philanthropic works” added Dantes.

Dantes is the founding chairman of YesPinoy Foundation.

The announcement of the RUNRIO Trilogy series is part of RUNRIO Events, Inc.’s expansion program that will bring more running activities to the public in the coming months.

Runners can also expect bigger and more exciting races from the country’s premiere running events company as it looks to add more races in its portfolio such as trail running, obstacle runs, just to name a few.

RUNRIO will also be launching its new campaign “Heart to Finish”, which is expected to become the participants’ mantra for all RUNRIO races.

“We at RUNRIO understand that people join races not just to run. It’s more because of their desire and passion to be able to finish their 21k, 32k or 42k races with different motivations. We believe that if you run with your heart, anything is possible” said Coach Rio dela Cruz, President of RUNRIO Events, Inc.

One of the highlights of the media launch was the opening of the online registration while onsite registrations will be open starting May 6, 2017, at Adidas Greenbelt 3, Adidas Trinoma, Adidas Solenad 3, Adidas BGC and Toby’s SM MOA.

“I would like to invite all those who like running to join the RUNRIO Trilogy 2017. This unique running series will definitely provide runners a chance to train and prepare properly and a chance to show how far they can go when they run with their heart,” said Coach Rio dela Cruz, RUNRIO Events, Inc. President.

RUNRIO Trilogy is made possible by Adidas, Gatorade & Okada Manila. Adidas is the official RUNRIO Trilogy apparel. The most awaited race series of the year is also supported by Active Health, Summit Water and Garmin Philippines.

25 February 2017 – MANILA, PHILIPPINES: COLOR MANILA, currently the most aggressive ‘concept fun-run’ organizer in the country today, is setting its sights on its next  big event at Clark, Pampanga on March 19, 2017.  The last event of COLOR MANILA at Clark, Pampanga saw a sold-out event with 6,000 participants.  The upcoming CM Challenge Run, which will be held at the Clark Parade Grounds, will have the runners this time go through obstacles, color stations and mazes.

Justine Cordero, VP for COLOR MANILA says, “We would like to invite runners and non-runners alike to join this exciting event, the CM Challenge Run.  We have customised a unique race route just for this run, with obstacles and challenges to make it more exciting, apart from being very colorful.  Of course, participants can also look forward to the after-party; we have invited DJ Franco Zarate to spin for us.”

Cordero continues, “We are targeting thousands of participants again for this fun-run.  We are also developing Clark as one of our bigger event sites outside of Manila.  Our recent event in Manila, which celebrated our 5th anniversary, saw 12,000 participants and we would like to eventually have a fun-run as big as this at Clark, Pampanga.”

“The last time we were at Clark, we saw participants from nearby provinces such as La Union, Baguio, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija and Tarlac.  We  also had some foreigners from other Asian countries and the United States who flew in just for that run.  We would like to consistently do this, along with our local partners, such as Clark Development Corporation, so we can help in our own way, in terms of growing the sports tourism agenda of Clark, Pampanga”, says Cordero.  

Participants can choose between the Deluxe Kit and the Trooper Kit.  The Deluxe, which is at Php 650 includes the singlet, sunglasses and color packet.  While the Trooper Kit, which is priced at Php 1,050, comes with an added drawstring bag and headwear.  Runners can also choose between the 3K, 5K or 10K routes.

Vitaly Bigdash dismisses challenger’s fight experience ahead of title tiff…

A tough test awaits Vitaly Bigdash as he defends his ONE Middleweight World Championship title for the first time against Burmese mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Aung La N Sang.

The five-round championship clash is scheduled to headline ONE: QUEST FOR POWER, which takes place at the Jakarta Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia on 14 January.

Bigdash was originally penciled to make his first title defense against Marcin Prachnio, but the highly-touted Polish prospect was forced to withdraw from the bout due to an injury.

Stepping up to the plate is Aung La, who is riding high on a remarkable four-fight winning streak in ONE Championship and has won three of his cage assignments in 2016.

Bigdash, who captured the intricately-crafted ONE Middleweight World Championship belt with a scintillating knockout victory over Igor Svirid in October 2015, is facing the most experienced foe in his nearly five-year prizefighting career.

Aung La has fought in 29 professional matches and has squared off with some of the top middleweight fighters across the globe.

The 31-year-old Burmese standout holds stellar victories over Aleksei Butorin and Michal Pasternak. Meanwhile, he shared an MMA cage with international MMA household names such as Costas Philippou and Uriah Hall.

However, Bigdash simply downplayed his opponent’s wealth of cage experience and is confident that he will keep the gold-plated strap around his waist.

“Aung La is an experienced fighter, but he has experienced losses in the past. I am undefeated. My mindset is far different than his. I am coming into this fight with one thing in my mind, which is to win. He knows the feeling of losing. He will feel it again,” he said.

Bigdash is known for being a swift finisher, owning four knockout triumphs and four submission wins.

Although Bigdash has yet to go the distance in his young MMA stint, he has no qualms going full five rounds with Aung La.

“I am ready to go the distance with him. I don’t mind if he wants to strike and grapple on the ground for five rounds. I am ready wherever the fight goes,” he stated.

Returning to the ONE Championship cage for the first time since his title-winning performance, Bigdash eyes another decisive win.

“It has been a long wait for me. I consider my first title defense as an exciting moment in my career. I feel that something special is going to happen,” he ended.

COLOR MANILA RUN – YEAR 5 FOR JANUARY 8, 2017

@ WWW.COLORMANILARUN.COM

December 4, 2016 – CLARK, PAMPANGA: COLOR MANILA, leading organizer of ‘concept-fun runs’, had a very successful return to Clark, Pampanga last December 3, 2016 for its CM Blacklight Run. They had a record number of 6,000 participants joining the said event, which is said to be the biggest event COLOR MANILA has had outside of Manila, to date.

The event was held at the Clark Parade Grounds and marked the third time that COLOR MANILA has held an event in Pampanga. Participants had various race finishes of 3K, 5K, and 10K to choose from.

“We had two other events brought to Clark this year, the last event was CM Blacklight as well, and because of the partnership we have with the Clark Development Corporation (CDC), we have been able to grow our number of participants from 3,000 to 6,000 in just a span of three (3) months. The run has become a much-anticipated event for runners and first-time runners alike”, says Justine Cordero, Vice President of COLOR MANILA.

Thousands of participants from Pampanga, Manila and some nearby provinces such as La Union, Baguio, Tarlac, Pangasinan and Bulacan joined the event. Some foreigners also flew all the way from Indonesia, US, and other countries, just to be able to experience the night run.

According to Jay Em, President of COLOR MANILA, “What makes COLOR MANILA different is that, it is not about who finishes the race first, since everyone gets a medal. For most of the participants, it is about creating that venue wherein you can exercise and bond with your friends at the same time, as you all go through the various race challenges and experience having colored powder thrown at you.”

Resident DJ Marxx Monterola with MC Dino also entertained the participants after the event.

COLOR MANILA’s next Blacklight event will be held in Dagupan in partnership with CSI The City Mall on December 10, 2016, it will be their last event for 2016.

Historic running event for integrity takes off in December

With the goal of making integrity everyone’s concern and part of daily life, the Integrity Initiative – spearheaded by the Makati Business Club, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP), the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (AMCHAM), the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP), and Financial Executives of the Philippines (Finex)- is staging a historic run on December 12, 2015 at the CCP Complex, Pasay City.

Dubbed “I RUN for Integrity: I am Part of the Solution,” the event calls on all sectors of society to participate in this important step towards building a culture of integrity in the Philippines. It is expected to bring together 5,000 representatives and runners from government, business, youth, civil society, academe, church, and media towards the common goal of being part of the solution in fighting corruption.

The event comes on the heels of the highly successful 2011 and 2012 editions of the run, which united a total of 12,000 runners. ECCP organizes this year’s running event in support of the Integrity Initiative, a private sector-led campaign that aims to promote common ethical standards among all sectors.

circular2015_irunforintegrity_faq

Established in 2009 by the Makati Business Club and ECCP, the Integrity Initiative operates on the principle of inclusion and collective action, and works on making the Philippines a leader in promoting an ethical business environment while eliminating negative practices. Since then, a good progress has been made to get the collective action against corruption and unethical business practices going. 2,000 company chief executives, 1,500 DPWH contractors, 42 high government officials, and 140 business organizations have already signified support to the Integrity Initiative and signed the Integrity Pledge.

Additionally, the Integrity Initiative has rolled-out a unified code of conduct in 2012, and the basic guidelines for ethical business behavior; introduced an online self-assessment tool to all signatories, which can be used to evaluate the areas for improvement in the integrity system within their organization; developed a validation process to validate the ratings from the self-assessment tool and will soon pilot a certification process for businesses.

“While the Integrity Initiative has already accomplished notable milestones, there’s still a lot that needs to be done. One of which is to encourage more engagement from individuals, especially the youth, to act with and uphold the value of integrity. This is why the theme of this year’s run is ‘I RUN for Integrity: I am part of the solution.’ The individual acts of integrity are sure to deliver remarkable collective result in the long run. Participating in the run event is a symbolic gesture of pledging to act with integrity,” said Henry Schumacher, Vice President of ECCP and the Integrity Initiative, Inc. “We expect this event to be another show of force by Filipinos from all walks of life who want to finish victorious over our fight with corruption. With this event, we seek to make integrity everyone’s mission,” Schumacher added.

Runners for the “I Run for Integrity: I am Part of the Solution” can choose to participate in the 3K, 5K, and 10K categories. Registration can be made at Chris’ Sports branches in Glorietta 3, Mall of Asia, Market! Market! and SM Megamall until December 4 only. Late registration is until December 7 or until race kits last at the ECCP office in Makati. Registration fee is at PHP 550, while a group of ten participants can avail of the 10 + 1 package. Accomplished runners get to bring home “I Run for Integrity” finisher shirt, baller band, and tokens from event sponsors. Special prizes also await top finishers of the event.

The “I RUN for Integrity: I am Part of the Solution” event forms part of this year’s Integrity Nation Now campaign of the Integrity Initiative to further solidify their goal of instilling integrity and combating corruption in the country.

In addition to the running event, the Integrity Initiative will also hold the 5th Integrity Summit on December 9, 2015 at Shangri-la Hotel in Makati City. The summit is expected to gather business leaders, anti-corruption and good governance experts, as well as key representatives from the government, church, youth, academe, and other agencies to continue to highlight the progress of the private sector in promoting ethical standards in business. The summit coincides with the celebration of the International Anti-Corruption Day.

The “I RUN for Integrity: I am part of the solution” event is made possible through the partnership with GMA, Globaltronics, Meralco, Siemens, De La Salle University, Rappler.com, Development Bank of the Philippines, Convergys, Globe Telecom, Land Bank of the Philippines, Nestle Philippines, Royal Cargo Inc., Shell Companies of the Philippines, The Medical City, Chris Sports, Friedrich Naumann Foundation, League of Cities of the Philippines, Pasay City LGU, Pasay Youth Development Council, and Philippine Institute of Supply Management.

ARCA South SyncRUNize

SyncRUNize brings adventure to ALI’s new CBD ARCA South

Synchronize your watches for a grand adventure in ARCA South. The 74-hectare Taguig property, set to become a new “city in sync” as master-planned by Ayala Land, Inc., is hosting a mobile-app integrated adventure run on Saturday, September 19, 2015.

SyncRUNize will be unlike other regular 5 km runs as it challenges both body and mind through a number of physical obstacles and mental drills. Racers will first have to download the exclusive SyncRUNize mobile app available on Google Play and iOS. The app directs participants from one checkpoint to another where they will have to accomplish the physical or mental challenge before they can get to the next.

ARCA South has partnered with Guerilla Race, organizers of the fierce sport Guerilla Race Series, to specially design the obstacle course. Mental drills, which can include calculations, stock knowledge tests, or abstract reasoning were designed by Go Go Hunt. Other partners are The North Face, Fox, Oculus Archery and as the partner-beneficiary of the event, the Help Educate and Rear Orphans (HERO) Foundation. Part of the proceeds from SyncRUNize will serve as educational aid to the children of soldiers incapacitated or killed in the line of duty.

Racers can compete as individuals or as teams of four.  They will get a chance to win P90,000 worth of cash and prizes for individual and group winners. At the end of the race, participants can celebrate their victory at Sync City, where they can enjoy the interactive booths and the food market.

“SyncRUNize is the kind of event that embodies the principle behind ARCA South as a City in Sync,” said Mr. Stephen Comia, ARCA South Project Development Manager. “The development is envisioned to be the newest CBD in Taguig where all the elements that make a city are present and in sync. In addition, the efficient management of the road network, traffic, communications, environment, security and other systems in ARCA South are primary.”

With DOTC’s planned Integrated Transport System (ITS) –South Terminal being recently awarded to Ayala Land, Inc., ARCA South will become one of the most highly connected districts in the city. This world-class transport terminal will rise beside ARCA South and increase accessibility to the property. The direct link to the Skyway and C5/ C6 highways will also make ARCA South minutes away from Makati, Bonifacio Global City and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

ARCA South will also eventually operate with a centralized system for traffic, power and security management, furthering its vision of being a city in sync. The district will be highly pedestrianized, punctuated by green spaces and streetscapes, and integrated basement parking to free the streets.

Registration for SyncRUNize is available on www.arcasouth.ph or in Chris Sports branches nationwide until September 18, 2015.

To get to ARCA South, participants can take the East Service Road along South Luzon Expressway or C5 in Taguig.  While for those interested to take the public transport, for a minimum fee of P30 per person per roundtrip, participants can also avail of shuttle services to the race via pick up points in
