Run United 2 and its First Race Expo

In Unilab ActiveHealth’s (ULAH) continuing efforts to promote an active and healthy lifestyle among families, 2012 Run United will have its second leg on 17 June 2012 at SM Mall of Asia.

A Family Affair

Run United Race Expo (1st : 2012 : Bonifacio Global City)

According to Coach Rio dela Cruz, “The race expo brings Run United to a whole new level. Major international marathons like the ING New York Marathon and Chicago Marathon hold their own expos days before the event. Together with ULAH, we look at some of the best practices from international races, and apply them to the Run United series to further enhance the race experience of the Filipino running community.”

It is happening on 13-16 June 2012 at the BGC grounds near Mercato from 2-8PM on June 13 and 10AM-8PM on June 14-16.  As a testament to the level of commitment that ULAH brings to the runners, Team Bike Boutique, the official merchandise partner of Ironman races worldwide, will organize the expo.  Fitness and athletic brands present their latest products and services including gadgets, running gears, among others.  Runners can hang out with their friends while checking out the coolest and latest sports apparel.  The race expo completes the active health experience of runners, sports enthusiasts, and their families in this four-day event.

Garfield Runner’s Cup, 12 Nov. 2011

Garfield is one of my favorite comic characters.  Sometime in 1994, I did a painting of Garfield using latex paint as a medium and it was included in an art exhibition during the fiesta celebration in my hometown. Yes, I used to paint still life and cartoon characters as my sujects.  I was trying to hone back then the visual artist in me.  But it was just a short-lived hobby.  Most of those paintings are tucked away to where I don’t even know where. 
And here’s another adventure with Garfield.  This time not through painting but through a fun run dubbed Garfield Runner’s Cup 2011. It introduces an exciting adventure not only for children but also for families as well, promoting the importance of healthy lifestyle, fitness, and family bonding.  The Garfield’s Runner’s Cup is happening on 12 Nov. 12 at Manila Ocean Park.

“We wanted to create a new dimension, and transform the usual fun run event. Expect a different kind of run. Expect a journey of fun-filled memories and experience catered for the whole family,” says Garfield Apparel Marketing Manager Kyle Ong.

Garfield and other cartoons are joining the race.  Louise Abuel, who plays as the kid brother of Sophia in 100 Days to Heaven, a prime-time children’s television series, will also grace the event.  It will be a fun-filled day for everyone!  Proceeds of the fun run would go to a children charity organization.

Registration has started last September 20 and still ongoing.  You may go to any Chris Sports branches at SM North EDSA The Annex, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, and Festival Mall; and on October 10 onwards at ROX Bonifacio High Street. Registration period is until November 10.
Garfield Runner’s Cup would accept limited runners for the safety of the participants. For more information, please visit or like them on Facebook at

Alaska Family Fun Run, May 7

Firstly, many thanks to my friend and fellow blogger, Vimz a.k.a. Kulit Runner for the info.  Secondly, this was supposed to be posted a week ago but for some reason I wasn’t able to.  Anyhow, we have Alaska to thank for giving away free race kits.  Yes, it’s FREE!  Yup, they decided to give out free registration and waive proof of purchase. Available kits are for any of the two race categories:

3km – Adult + Child 4 to 10 years old (500 race kits)
5km – Adult + Child 11 to 14 years old (500 race kits)

Please note [however] that the Alaska Family Run is a fun run meant for an adult and child tandem. There is no solo category. And the adult and child tandem doesn’t have to be Parent & Child [as long as it’s a pair of] adult and child. This is really supposed to be a family bonding moment. The event will take place on May 7, Saturday, at the SM Mall of Asia [grounds]. For details, see poster below:
The [only] option on how you can claim the FREE race kits to the Alaska Family Fun Run is to go personally to RUNNR at Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City or L TimeStudio in Greenbelt 1, inform the registration staff that you are availing of the FREE registration and do manual registration there, and get your kits right away.
The first 1000 finishers get to receive [this] cool Finisher’s shirt
