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.
