I prefer running over other forms of physical exercise because it doesn’t need much equipment, it’s free and accessible for all. Running has an impact both on our adrenalin and has health benefits as well and that is why millions of people is running all over the world and one of them is me. I may not be a “mamaw” in running but beside health reason, this is also my way to bond with my children who runs with me.
And now, we have another fun run to attend to. Gatorade is back for its second year
Gatorade partners with Runrio for this year. It will be held on November 27, 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The run will have two distances—11K and 22K.
Gatorade and Runrio host a presscon to announce important details about the event. I was fortunate to be able to attend the event
It was fun and informative since question and answer was also part of the event. It was exciting to meet and greet other longtime friend runners. This is only the moment when we see each other since we have our own schedule and work as well. Coach Rio was accommodating as always and we got see the singlet and finisher’s shirt during the presscon. Just like last year, Adidas will be the part of the event because they will be supplying the singlet and the finisher’s shirt. For those who will be running the 22k, they will also receive a finisher’s medal as well.
I believe that this year’s Gatorade run will be bigger and thrilling with all the activities lined up before and after the race. I would be running with my daughter and son and they are excited just like me. Since I would be running the 11k, I need to start training for this fun run
More than 6,000 runners registered in last year’s run which featured hydration stations where participants got pre-race hydration drinks, a post-run hydration test area where runners instantly learned about their hydration status, and a warm-up area where free sessions were available for those who wanted a full-on warm up activity before and after the run. Gatorade ambassadors Jeron Teng, Jaja Santiago, Chris Banchero, Jett Manuel and Ara Galang were among those who were present to support the runners.
This year’s run promises to be more exciting, while still focusing on the importance of pre- and post-run hydration. Pepsico Marketing Manager for Hydration Tony Atayde said, “Gatorade is a global leader in sports performance and we’ll definitely bring that expertise to the run. Learning the benefits of proper hydration is crucial for runners and we look forward to reinforcing that message through the Gatorade Run. We’re excited to show runners how, whether in sports hydration or a unique consumer experience, NOTHING BEATS GATORADE.”
