Strike a Pose Fun Run, 10 Dec. 2017

Strike a Pose! Share your blessings!

Running Photographers will hold a fun run on 10 Dec. 2017 at the CCP Complex, Pasay City to celebrate the art of sharing, touching lives, and making a difference. As a prelude to the Christmas season, the event aims to raise funds for the benefit of Senden Home Foundation, a home for homeless boys in Binganonan, Rizal.

Aptly called Strike a Pose Fun Run, the event will feature different photo stations along the route. Runners will have the opportunity to have their running moments captured by our photographers at every station.

To add more fun to the run, organizer Running Photographers and its sponsors will be raffling off a pair of Hoka shoes during the event. There will also be a mini-competition for best photos showing the runners’ best poses during the event. The mechanics will be posted at the Running Photographers’ Facebook page. Team Soleus Philippines will also be leading the Zumba Reggaeton.

The fun run is sponsored by Lightwater, Vitamin Boost, Toby’s Sports, and Soleus and powered by RG Events. The distance categories, registration fees, and gun start times are as follows:

Distance        Fee                             Gun start

3K                     P450                            5:50AM

5K                     P550                            5:40AM

10K                  P750                            5:30AM

The registration fee entitles each runner-registrant to a race bib and an event shirt. Likewise, finishers will also get a finisher’s medal and an assortment of freebies from the event sponsors.

Online registration opened on October 20, 2017. To register online, participants can visit https://reg.goorahna.com/#/event/strike-a-pose-fun-run-2017. On the other hand, in-store registration will open on November 9 at Toby’s Sports branches in Trinoma, Glorietta, SM Mall of Asia, and RUNNR Alabang Town Center.

With the fun run, Running Photographers aims to encourage running enthusiasts to keep an active lifestyle while at the same time share their blessings to the less fortunate. It wants to focus more on instilling into the consciousness of the participants how they can help in their own little way. As such, there will be no cash prizes but top finishers for each category will receive gift packs and giveaways from our sponsors.

National Geographic Earth Day Run 2017

On 23 Apr. 2017 marks another milestone for National Geographic (NG), which celebrates eight years of holding Earth Day Run (EDR), raising consciousness on environmental issues and health including social awareness through fitness with special program features using the hash tag #8withEDR.

The event encourages and welcomes all types of Eco Warriors to take part—from fun runners of all ages to serious recreational athletes who regularly compete. The event will be held not only in Manila but also in the cities of Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, and Taichung, an initiative that was adopted last year to effectively spread the vision and advocacy of EDR across Asia.  EDR in Manila will be held at the SM Mall of Asia grounds where participants can choose a 5K, 10K, 21K, or 42K distance category.

“Earth Day Run 2017 will be the biggest version of the race yet, with more expected participants from Manila and four other cities across Asia. We’re also excited to look back on our eight years of environmental advocacy and share and celebrate with our runners the positive change that they helped make possible through the years by joining Earth Day Run. We hope that Earth Day Run 2017 not only brings communities of running enthusiasts together for the common cause of saving the environment but also that it amplifies the important message of doing your own part today to help stop climate change and commit to sustainable solutions to save our beloved planet Earth,” said FOX Networks Group Philippines director and head of content and marketing Charo Espedido.

Last year, EDR participants ran to support causes such as saving the Irawaddy dolphins at the Malampaya Sound Research and Conservation Project in Palawan; giving the Earth Hour or Gift of Life Village in Monreal, Masbate sustainable solutions to reduce carbon footprint; conservation of the marine protected area and coral reef in Apo Reef in Occidental Mindoro; and, beefing up reforestation efforts at the Ipo Watershed in Bulacan, which is one of Metro Manila’s sources of water supply.

Presented by the channel and its partners Cherifer Premium and World Wildlife Fund for Nature, EDR aims to continue the tradition of being one of the biggest running events in the country, expecting scores of running enthusiasts with the hopes of mobilizing all Eco Warriors of previous EDRs to register and run for the environment.

This year’s event welcomes all previously registered participants with VIP treatment and special loyalty perks to be enjoyed on the day of the run. They will be given priority placement in front of the starting line at the beginning of the race and can claim their loot bag and finisher shirt at a special express booth. They can also make use of a special warm-up and cool down tent before and after the race to condition them and recover in comfort.

Singlets

To top it off, EDR will also be sporting new features for its runners. As a special treat, all race kits will come with LED shoelaces, serving as a badge of pride and as a safety precaution for Eco Warriors running at night or before sunrise. Prizes will also be given to costumed runners who showcase their creativity by coming in their best ensemble made from recycled materials.

Finisher’ medal and shirt

To make each Eco Warrior’s voice heard in this run for the Earth, advocacy banners will be hanging above the finish line so that each runner can grab them as they cross to make a shout-out for the environment, keep as a souvenir, and use for all their post-run selfies to amplify the message of acting now to save the environment.

New participants can also join the celebrations by visiting the EDR Gallery at the Race Village to learn what the event has accomplished over the years including its environmental and social initiatives, and how their participation will make a significant impact on certain communities in the Philippines and how their actions as individuals will affect the environment.

Runners at EDR will not only experience a fun day of outdoor fitness, but also be doing their part in contributing to NG’s environmental efforts.

Registration will start on March 1 and end on April 16.  For more information and other details on how to register, please visit National Geographic Earth Day Run website.

Grooving and Running on a Saturday Afternoon

This is a guest post by Ruth Honculada-Georget, a former technical cooperation coordination officer with the International Labor Organization and a stay-at-home mom to her little angel daughter.

For someone who struggles to run but loves to dance, the Music Run 2016 was like a dream come true!

At the starting line

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!

Happy Ruth

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!

Marga of UNICEF, Ruth, Running Diva

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!
