Run United Series 2013

Exceed Yourself is this year’s Run United theme.  
Understanding runners’ feedback plus the ever changing trend in race requirements, Unilab Active Health (ULAH) has made some changes for the 2013 Run United Series.  One, expect longer distances that are big on fun and prizes.  Two, phasing out of the three-kilometer category, but the 500-meter dash for children will still be retained.  Three, a new fabric designed singlet for comfort and enhanced performance.
“We noticed a trend during the previous years’ races that the slots for longer distances get filled up faster. There were instances when we had to open up more slots. So, by focusing on longer distances, we will be able to accommodate more runners,” said Alex Panlilio, Head of ULAH.  “This is in line with our plan to be part of the growth and journey of Filipino runners. It just goes to prove that the local running community is more mature, that is why we also launched the Run United Philippine Marathon last year. Filipino runners have leveled up,” added Coach Rio dela Cruz of Runrio, Inc.
Better and useful items will still be part of the finishers’ token. And, the unique United medal will still be given away to encourage participants to complete the series. Of course, the Unilab Active Health villages will still be jam packed with activities and freebies for the participants and their families.

XTERRA “Putik Pare” Off-Road Duathlon

After the huge success of Cobra Energy Drink Ironman 70.3 Philippines and Alaska Milk Ironkids Philippines, Alaska Milk Corporation president Wilfred Steven Uytengsu through Sunrise Events, Inc. brings another international sporting brand to the country, XTERRA Philippines.

XTERRA is the premiere international off-road triathlon brand known for its off-road races which include swimming, mountain biking and trail running. XTERRA also holds the World Championships in Maui, Hawaii every October. The inaugural XTERRA Philippines race dubbed as XTERRA Putik Pare off-road duathlon relay will be held on November 7, 2010 in Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

Putik Pare is a two-person off-road duathlon relay which is a combination of 18 kilometers of mountain biking and 8 kilometers of trail run. The relay teams will start together with one member starting with a trail run while the other will start on the mountain bike. The course will bring them back to where they started and they will switch disciplines. Again they will return and have to cross a mud pit before proceeding to the finish line together. It will have three race categories: All Male, All Female, and Mixed.

We are honored to have the franchise for XTERRA in the Philippines. We believe this creates opportunities for mountain bikers and trail runners (as well as conventional triathletes) to experience top quality events in the country,” Uytengsu stated.

He also added mountain biking is actually a large demographic in the Philippines and expects these events to be much larger than traditional triathlons.

Registration will be opened from September 15-October 31, 2010 at R.O.X., Second Wind, Cycling Zone, and RUNNR. Interested participants may also register on-line at
