Sunset Run, 10 Dec. 2011

Here’s a sneak peek of the Sunset Run slated to happen on December 10, 2011. 
Sunset Run is just one of the many activities of the SunPIOLOgy 2012 Trio. 
Running is a meditation for me, a time to think and just let myself go. It is also a challenge to see how far I can go,” volunteers Piolo who is, himself, a runner and a multisport enthusiast.
Aside from the regular road races of 3K, 5K, and 10K distances, Sunset Run will start with a Vertical Run at the newly built Sunlife Centre in Bonifacio Global City.  Of course, the little ones are not left behind since it also has a 500-meter costume run for children aged 5-10 years old. 

Registration is accepted at Toby’s and RUNNR outlets in Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio High Street, Shangri-la Mall, and TriNoma until November 4.

The Sunset Run is a project of Sun Life Financial with St. Luke’s Medical Center and Sun Life Foundation as co-presenters. Official timer is Timex while Powerade is the official hydration.
