MIRINDA CARFRAE TO RACE IN BATAAN INTERNATIONAL TRIATHLON 2015

p6

F&F International Events Group, Inc. shook the Philippine multisport scene as it revealed on Monday, September 7 that 3-time Ironman World Champion Mirinda “Rinny” Carfrae is racing at the Bataan International Triathlon this year. It will be Rinny’s first race in the Philippines and it is the first time ever that a reigning women’s Ironman World Champion will be racing in the Philippines. As Bi3 does not have a separate professionals division, Rinny will share the starting line with other pro athletes, Filipino elites, and age groupers. This gives Bi3 participants a chance to race alongside their idol.

miranda_carfrae

Rinny’s triathlon career started when she represented Australia at the ITU Triathlon World Championships from 2001-2005, where she bagged silver medals in the years 2002 and 2003. In 2009, she landed in second place in her first ever appearance at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii – considered the most prestigious triathlon event in the world. Since then Rinny has landed in the podium in all her appeareances at the World Championships. In 2010, she dominated the women’s field and took first place, repeating this feat in 2013 and 2014. She owns the Ironman World Championship women’s course record at 8:52:13 and women’s marathon run record with a time of 2:50:38.

On top of her athletic athletic career, Rinny is also involved in chartable initiatives such as the programs of World Bicycle Relief, which aim to provide bicycles to residents of rural Africa and connect them with education, healthcare and economic opportunites. She brings this same charitable heart to the Philippines as she will help launch the Batang Tri Grassroots Program, a program that aims to fight poverty in Phlippines and Asia through multisport.

BATANG TRI GRASSROOTS PROGRAM

 wpid-img_20150914_145902.jpg

The Batang Tri Grassroots Program is an initiative by CEO and President of F&F International Events Group, Inc. and restaurateur Raymund Magdaluyo. It started as a small-scale CSR of the Blackbeard’s Seafood Island Group in partnership with coach Jojo Macalintal, wherein part of the proceeds from the sales of Jomac Boodle, a meal created by coach Jomac, are used in buying bicycles for young individuals that want to enter the world of multisports but do not have the capacity to do so.

This year, Batang Tri Grassroots Program is set to expand to new horizons as coach Melvin Fausto of the Triathlon Association of the Philippines and Carlos De Guzman of SwimBikeRun.ph join Raymund Magdaluyo and Jojo Macalintal to combat poverty through the help of multisports. The renewed program aims to acquire more bicycles and funds for different training programs for deserving young individuals.

One hundred special slots for the Bataan International Triathlon will be open to the public wherein a part of the proceeds will directly go to the Batang Tri Grassroots Program.

KickassPoster

Commercenter, the go-to-hub for families and communities in the south in Alabang, were busy with fitness activities and classes for the whole weekends for August.  Thanks to the first ever Kickass Sports and Fitness Expo for offering exciting workouts and talks for the mall goers to check out.

Kickass was founded when Ruby Gan went home inspired from an international marathon.  Having no such event in the country that features a vast array of sporting and fitness goods, Kickass’ intention was to provide the same holistic experience from that one particular expo.  Working with Que Gavan of Takbo,ph, a partnership was created, with the two combining their wits to design an expo that is unique and suited to the local community.

The first weekend was about running and nutrition.  There were talks on running for both the new and the seasoned runners – for kids, for beginners, for those who want to try out the trails and those who want to go further and do ultramarathon.  Experts also shared the importance of proper nutrition and hydration for everyone to be aware of the proper diet and how to fuel up for race day.

MS 101 Camp at Kickass

Multisport Philippines had the next weekend teaching participants about running and biking.  They had outdoor application drills after the talk, both for running and biking,  Participants get to apply what they have learned and was treated to post workout snacks and some giveaways.

Yoga

The last weekend of the expo was the most exciting part.  It offered relaxing and heart-pumping exercises like yoga (ashtanga and vinsaya) and high-intensity interval training.  Event the benefits of having babies learning how to swim was discussed.  PiYo, a combination workout, inspired by Pilates and Yoga, was also first launched in the expo.

It was a gathering of the best coaches and speakers like Andy Leuterio, Chi Malasarte, Paulo Sotelo, Fia Batua, Hector Yuzon, Jinoe Gavan, Jonel Mendoza, JP Alipio, Mitch Felipe, Ria Mackay, Teeffany Go, Ani de Leon-Brown, and Titus Salazar to share and discuss several interests.

The expo also showcased several fitness and sports brands.  Mall goers, as well as participants, had a chance to check out over 20 exhibitors of great mix of brands and services, from apparel, to athletic shoes, to fitness accessories, to hydration options.  Participants had a chance to have their feet analyzed to know the perfect shoe and to try out the cool zero impact running equipment.

Kickass Sports and Fitness Expo 2015 was made possible with the partnership with Takbo.ph, Multisport and Asics.  It is an all-in-one event where cyclists, runners, triathletes, and even those starting to get a healthy lifestyle, had the opportunity to learn, experience, and buy products and services that surely intensify one’s goal in keeping an active and healthy lifestyle.

In the Philippines, this event is part of Alaska’s “NUTRITION. ACTION. CHAMPION.” program of promoting a healthy and active lifestyle through sports participation and milk consumption.  Through events like Cycle Philippines, Alaska hopes to reverse the effects of obesity and malnutrition in the country.

According to the Food and Nutrition Research Institute’s (FNRI) 7th National Nutrition Survey in 2008, about 2 out of 10 Filipino children, and at least 16 million Filipinos, are overweight.  With low levels of physical activity, being overweight can lead to serious heart problems and diabetes at the young age, leading to serious health, financial, and social implications in adulthood.

With Alaska Cycle Philippines, Filipinos can be part of a community activity that would help them become physically fit and healthy, enabling them to become champions in life.

The Alaska IronKids Race Series is just one of many sports development programs that Alaska conducts yearly to engage children to come out and play.

Alaska’s sports programs hope to encourage children to get into organized sports while learning positive values like hard work, discipline, determination and teamwork. The program for 2015 will continue to bring excitement as it helps future athletes realize their dreams.
