From its inception, I knew then that I wanted to complete the trilogy. And so I did.
The Runrio Awards Night was Coach Rio’s way of giving back to runners who have conquered the three main events dubbed as 21K-21K-32K. It was a night fit for stars. From the red carpet, photo wall, to stage props, it looked like the Academy Awards.
I attended this event not only as a blogger but also as an awardee for completing the Century Tuna Superbods Run (21K), Nature Valley Run (21K), and Run United 2 (32K) dubbed as The Runrio Trilogy.
Never a dull moment especially with the powerful performances of the Philippine All-Stars, a hip-hop dance group that won the World Hip Hop Dance Championships in 2006 and 2008. That was really a great bonus for me. Yeah, I’m a fan of this group!

Another plus that night was the presence of the Filipina beauty queen, Venus Raj, who was crowned Miss Philippines-Universe last year and represented the country in the 2010 Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and placed fourth runner-up.

Some runners also garnered special awards. Runrio’s theme song, Run for Love, and Runrio races for 2011 were also launched that night. Overall, it was a successful event. Kudos to Coach Rio and his Runrio Team for a job well done! Many, many thanks to Doc Marvs for the photos.
