Soleus has expanded to launch into cycling and fitness channels. At the same time, the brand added new products to its GPS and core running lines.
Soleus, the brand that brought “everything you need and nothing you don’t” to running watches, now brings you everything you need for your gym fitness exercise as well.
Soleus recently partnered with world renowned Zumba fitness presenter William Flores to kickoff the first phase of its fitness program in Manila through a series of dance events and classes in cooperation with L Timestudio and Marriott Hotel Manila led by William himself and some of the members of the Team Soleus Running Group.
The brand will be launching a series of fitness device that will not only count steps and lifts but also monitor heart rate to allow optimum use of overall training. This will be launched over the course of 2017.
We don’t just make watches or timing devices. We don’t just track time for athletes. And we don’t just make colorful, affordable running watches. We also don’t change who we are as a brand from season to season. So who are we? What do we stand for?
At Soleus, a world is created where people activate passion and build community in their lives through their sport by making stylish,

For someone who struggles to run but loves to dance, the Music Run 2016 was like a dream come true!
I have been an on-off runner for the last ten years struggling to put into reality that cliché called work-life balance. To add, the last few years have also made it more difficult to run with a three-year old to keep me occupied.
One thing is for sure though dancing was an easy squeeze in my active daily life! I have never lost my love for music especially, dance music. So when my good friend Running Diva invited me to the Music Run, my gut told me that this was it! The best way to get back to running and to survive five kilometers was to get into the grooving at the same time.
The excitement was contagious from the moment we stepped into the West McKinley grounds with the DJ mixing the latest dance tracks. This was definitely PARTY TIME! I truly enjoyed the wide variety of music genres that were blasting every stride of the run. The best part was wearing the most comfortable exercise clothes, runner shoes, and partying with hundreds of equally enthusiastic runner-cum-party goers!
It was truly a gorgeous afternoon with lots of greenery along the course and all I could think of was THIS IS AMAZING! I could sing at the top of my lungs, wave my hands in the air, and wiggle the old jiggle like nobody cared. The adrenaline rush had kicked in and I managed to run 5K with lots of extra energy to party some more. As night came, the DJ mixed wonderful variety of music and dance performances brought the house down. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, there was a fireworks display that totally caught us by surprise! WOW!
What a great event! Thanks to Philam Vitality, Alcatel, Takbo.ph and the rest of the sponsors and organizers for The Music Run Manila for bringing the healthy happy lifestyle closer to many Filipinos! I am certainly looking forward to next year’s run … or should I say parteeeeh!

Asia’s most exciting music festival and ultimate 5K run drew nearly ten thousand runners when it first made waves in the Philippines last year [at the Philippine Arena]!
This year, The Music Run™ (TMR™) by Philam Vitality in partnership with music streaming service Spotify brings the party back to Manila with everyone’s favorite hits playing on 120 concert-quality speakers across McKinley West in Taguig City.
TMR™ event was officially launched last week at the Revel at the Palace, Uptown Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City attended by event partners, sponsors, the media, and VIP guests.
The five-kilometer run includes music-themed zones playing Rock, Pop, Old School, Hip Hop, and Dance. Using the live Spotify Music Voting App, participants can vote up to five songs per playlist every day to build the official soundtrack for each zone. The event kicks off with a prerun performance by local alternative band Sud, while the afterrun music festival features Australian radio house DJ Sam Withers.
Music Runners™ can select from two event packs: Standard Pack (P850) which comes with a T-shirt, bag, beat band, sticker, and temporary tattoo; the Rock Star Pack (P1400) which comes with a towel, water bottle, and a cap.
Late registration for TMR™ starts on November 1. Standard and Rock Star Packs for late registrants are priced at P950 and P1600 respectively. For last call registrations starting on November 21, the Standard and Rock Star Packs will cost P1050 and P1800 respectively. Last call for registration is on November 25. Children less than five years old can join the run for FREE! Registrants can collect their event packs at Glorietta 5 in Makati on November 26-28.

“This is the second time that Philam Life is partnering with TMR™. We want to send a strong message that being healthy can also be fun and engaging,” said Philam Vitality deputy head Kats Cajucom. “One of our company’s main thrusts is healthy living through our Philam Vitality program, which is the first of its kind in the Philippines. It is a full-scale wellness program where members get rewarded for making healthy choices. Through Philam Vitality, we are taking active steps to positively transform the lives of Filipinos by helping them live longer, healthier, and [have] better lives,” Cajucom added.
“While most fun runs originate from the US, TMR™started in Asia and expanded throughout the region before crossing over to Europe and the US in the last two years,” said co-founder and chief executive officer of Exceed Sports and Entertainment Martin Capstick, co-founder and chief executive officer of Exceed Sports and Entertainment who is organizing the run. “The reason for its massive success is its winning formula that combines music with the ever-growing fitness craze into the ultimate running and music festival that also puts control of the run’s soundtrack in the hands of our Music Runners™,” he added.
TMR™ first took place in Kuala Lumpur in 2014. Since then, it has drawn more than 100,000 runners across twelve events and nine countries. For more information on TMR™, visit its official website, Facebook Page, or YouTube Channel.
About The Music Run™
Launched in 2014, TMR™ is the ultimate 5K running and music festival. For music lovers, casual runners, and fun seekers, TMR™ is more like a party than a run. It is the only five-kilometer fun run that puts music at the heart. TMR™ empowers participants to control the soundtrack of the run by voting for their favorite songs in the build up to the event. Voting is via a bespoke ‘Music Voting App’ and the songs with the most votes make the official run playlist. On event day, runners experience the world’s loudest 5K running course, known as ‘The Sound Track’. Over 120 speakers pump out the songs participants voted for across five interactive and music themed zones. The run ends with the ultimate after-run music festival. With music every step of the way, running never sounds so good. 2016 will see further global expansion of TMR™ with additional events across Asia and inaugural events planned in North America and Africa.
