Runrio Trilogy Awards Night

When I arrived at Decagon Silver City last February 20, I wonder, will there be star of night? Are Kenyans invited too? These questions are stucked in my mind as I approached the registration area of Runrio Trilogy Awards Night.

It was an overwhelming experience to see Coach Rio greeted and congratulate the awardees at the stage. I saw the youngest, to the oldest, to the fastest awardee of the night.

Photos taken during awards night.

According to few runners I met in the lobby, the medal from Runrio Triology is described more than a finisher’s medal. More power to Coach Rio and Runrio Team, Unilab ActiveHealth and other sponsors, and the star of the night.. the runners! Congratulations. Hope to be see you on the next Runrio Trilogy on 2013.

Before I forgot, I would like to congratulate my friend Banjo Asiddao, Runrio’s Blogger of the Year. We love you and we are proud of you. Ikaw na!

About the Powerade ION4

The new sports drink was proudly endorsed by country’s celebrity runner Rio Dela Cruz, fitness diva Chinggay Andrada, basketball player David Semerad and football player Niel Etheridge.

The New Powerade ION4 helps replenish fluid losses and the four key electrolytes in the same ratio typically lost in sweat: sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. It also contains carbohydrates at 15 calories per 100mL. POWERADE ION4® encourages the body to absorb fluid and maintain fluid balance. Carbohydrates are replaced as well, supplying your working muscles with fuel, helping you sustain mental and physical performance as you exercise. To help you fight off dehydration, POWERADE ION4®doesn’t switch your thirst receptors off prematurely. It keeps you feeling thirsty until you’re properly rehydrated.

What’s in Riovana?

Riovana: Sole of Running

Right after the BGC Run launching held at Itallanis at Bonifacio High Street, me and the other bloggers went to Rio’s newly opened store located at 28th Street, corner 9th in Bonifacio High Street called RIOVANA. A running store designed by a runner for the runners.

While looking around and checking what’s inside, I asked Rio what is in Riovana that other running stores don’t have? He replied, aside from shoes and running stuff, there will be a sports doctor to attend runners’ medical needs, shower rooms and spa that will be called “sole searching”. He invited us to attend the so soft opening of Riovana the next day but I was not able to come due to few obligations.

Maybe, I will visit his store next week… by the way, Congrats Coach Rio.

Runrio: Get Ready Pilipinas

Run United Provincial Leg Series

Last June 29, I and the rest of the invited running bloggers joined a get together dinner with Runrio Inc. at Kabisera in Bonifacio High Street as they happily announced that they are bringing their Class-A races to provinces. These regional races made it possible through Unilab ActiveHealth’s Run United 2011 Regional Leg Series as the first kick-off race is happening in Roxas Avenue, Davao City on August 14, 2011.

The regional races will hold in the cities of Iloilo, Baguio, Bacolod and Cebu.

I am thankful to Runrio family for the invitation that I registered myself to Baguio and Bacolod legs.

Some pictures at the party.
