Poster RP events

Strike a Pose! Share your blessings!

Running Photographers will hold a fun run on December 10, 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, the organizer 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 (www.facebook.com/runningphotographers). Team Soleus Philippines will also be leading the Zumba Reggaeton.

The fun run, sponsored by Lightwater, Vitamin Boost, Toby’s Sports, and Soleus, and powered by RG Events, will have three distance categories – 3kms, 5kms, and 10kms. The registration fees and gun start times are as follows:

 

Distance        Fee                             Gun start

3kms               P450.00                      5:50AM

5kms               P550.00                      5:40AM

10kms             P750.00                      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.

Hello Kitty also came with a Link Love Together concept promoted in the race and in their merchandise.  The run likewise created a buzz in the social networking sites with a lot of engagement in both Facebook and Instagram while the hashtags #HelloKittyRunManila #LinkLoveTogether and #HKRManila2017 also was prominent in social media.

funrun poster

Date: November 26, 2017

Venue: Camp Aguinaldo

The successful One STC Run organized by the St. Theresa’s College, Quezon City Class of 1992 last year inspired STCQC Class of 1993 to continue the event.

Both classes— including the STCQC Alumnae Association— hope that this would become an annual gathering for Theresian families and their friends.

On its second year, One STC Run is now One STC Run 2.0: A Family Fun Run with Duathlon and Kiddie Bike Race.

STCQC 1993 designed this year’s Run for:

  • families who want to spend a healthy morning together
  • the serious athletes; and
  • the kiddos who want to exhibit their biking prowess!

The Run is also one of the fundraising activities of STCQC 1993 for its Homecoming on 27 January 2018 and the class’s chosen beneficiaries: The Queen of Peace Convent, the retirement home of the Sisters of the Missionary Heart of Mary (ICM); the scholars of STC’s Sambayan Educational Fund, Inc. (SEFI); and the construction of the new senior high school building.

As this year’s Run will be at the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) General Headquarters at Camp Aguinaldo, we thought it best to also give tribute to the valor of our soldiers.

The Run participants can also make a separate donations to help sustain the education of the children of soldiers, under the auspices of HERO Foundation.

Race Kit prices:

3K Run – PHP 500
6K Run – PHP 700
Duathlon – PHP 1500

Alaska World Milk Day 2015

milk logo

On its third year, Alaska Milk Corporation gathered Filipino families once more to celebrate the benefits of having a healthy and active lifestyle through the World Milk Day Family Run.

The World Milk Day celebration last May 31, is part of Alaska’s continuing commitment to promote proper nutrition and active lifestyle through its “Nutrition. Action. Champion” program.

program

This year, the celebration attracted an even bigger crowd in these four cities.  For the first time in the history, Alaska held a Family Run and Zumba activity in Manila, Baguio, Cebu and Davao simultaneously.

Alaska reinforces the importance of drinking milk and participation in sports and outdoor play among Filipinos.  It also encourage children and families nationwide to develop the habit of taking nutritious breakfast through the “Alaska for Breakfast” campaign in which breakfast stations and milk bars were set-up in all four areas which served all participants with pandesal, champorado and milk for free.  This is to encourage them to develop the habit of having a good breakfast with milk which is crucial since breakfast will provide them with nutritious energy to start the day right and get through it.

The celebration culminated in a nationwide Milk Toast at exactly 6:00am, where children and their families in the four venues simultaneously drank milk and made a pledge to a healthy and active lifestyle.

Manila’ family run categories were 3K individual, 3K family, 5K and 10K.  There were 100m and 1K events as well for the children who wanted to join just for the adrenaline rush of the race.  In the provincial events, participants ran in a 3K category and sweat out their calories in an exhilarating Zumba party.

And I can’t let that day pass not joining the fun run.  I joined the 10K categories with my fellow blogger Banjo Asiddao as my running buddy for that day.  The route is new for me as it’s not the usual route that I always traverse or maybe because after 2 years, I think, only now that I joined again a 10K category. We had fun running as the weather is good and we had time for some “chit-chat”.

As I run the last 2K, the runners from other categories were merged into one route.  I saw “mamaw kids” ruling the road and who else would that be but the Borlain sisters, with their dad Ringo Borlain cheering for them.

Aside from the Borlain family, as we all know always rule the Alaska Ironkids, two siblings are now merging in the kids running scene.  Thom Smith, 14 years old and Little Darna, 8 years old.  They won that day their respective categories.  They were the kids of also known “mamaw” runners, Lakay Runner and Batanguena Runner which are also ruling the road in ultra-marathons.

mamaw family

They were introduced in running in 2012 and they started proper training with Wednesday Group of Runners last May 2014 when they were transferred from Batangas school to Makati school.  Aside from the Wednesday training, they have regular training at University of Makati under the supervision of coach Roger Dumaguit of Fort Bonifacio School.  They graduated at SMART Athletics and both awarded as two of the top 10 most outstanding students.

Meet Little Darna.

Who can never turn his/her head on this adorable cute little girl.  The last time I saw her is at Coach Roel’s relay race .  She joined the 4 x 100m relay.  After the race, she was crying not because of pain but because she was “bitin” with the distance.  So her mother enlisted her in 4 x 400m relay. You will be amazed with her stamina, endurance and her running posture.  According to her mom, when she is wearing her Darna outfit, it will be a “pa-cute” run but beware when she wears a singlet… She means business!

Other Activities

As Alaska always encourages Filipinos to participate in sports and outdoor play, numerous activities where placed in the event area for the kids and the kids at heart.

kids activities

Overall, the event was successful.  Rendering families such a good venue for bonding.  From babies driven in their strollers by their mothers, to grandpas and grandmas who showed that they still have it, the Alaska World Milk Day Family Run and Zumba gathered Filipinos from all walks of life, all in the name of nutrition and health.

The celebration of the third Alaska World Mild Day puts greater emphasis on the need to combat obesity and malnutrition in the country.  According to the Food and Nutrition Research Institute’s 7th National Nutrition Survey in 2008, at least 16 million Filipinos aged 20 and above, and about 2 out of 10 children are overweight.  The yearly observance of World Milk Day through the Alaska Family Run and the Alaska for Breakfast campaign helps reverse this prevailing nutritional problem, which could lead to serious health, economic, and social implications in adulthood.
