Resorts World Manila’s Grand Fiesta Run 2010

November 3rd, 2010 3 comments

So what’s really fun in fun runs? Aside from running with hundreds of people and being all sweaty and “amoy araw” while doing it, I think we can still be more creative and work on the f-u-n part. As my old friend, Wikipedia says, people usually join fun runs primarily because they want enjoyment more than winning the competition.

Resorts World Manila’s Grand Fiesta Run 2010 promises to put the fun in fun run. One of the highlights of the event is a 1K rat race that encourages runners to come in their office attires, fiesta-inspired outfits, or costumes that represent their industry minus the heels and leather shoes, of course. Runners can wear their most comfortable shoes to make up for the outrageous and wild clothes they’ll be sporting. I suggest you go dress to the nines as this will mean more chances of winning exciting prizes! The race has awards for the Best Dressed, Most Unique, Biggest Group/Company, and Wildest Costume.

And to top it all, rat race participants will also be receiving 1,000 free gaming credits in Resorts World Manila.

For more intense runners, don’t worry as the Grand Fiesta Run also features the 3K, 5K, and 10K challenge in a new route in Newport City. Runners can select their finish chute and win different prizes such as shop, movie, spa, hotel, and cruise gift certificates! Participants can also join the raffle draw and sprint their way to a 3-day/ 2-night trip for four to Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore with free tickets to Universal Studios. The lucky winners will be brought to their destination via Resorts World Manila’s private jet!

The registration already started last October 27 and be sure to catch it before November 22 at the following outlets: Chris Sports in MOA, Glorietta, and SM Mega Mall; R.O.X Bonifacio High Street, and in Resorts World Manila.

The registration fee is PhP650 for all race categories.

The gun start is at:  6:00am for 10K, 6:05am for 5K, 6:10am for 3K, and 7:15am for 1K.

Bring your families and friends on November 28 for one truly unforgettable fun run!

Are you ready to be an Urbanathlete?

October 14th, 2010 1 comment

I am not into running back then when I saw the posters of the 2009 edition of the Men’s Health Urbanathlon but judging from the faces of the racers, I see high level of intensity, competition, and of course fun.

Brings to mind the obstacle courses I enjoyed a lot during pre-school.Haha So, before I ended up telling my childhood memories (crushes and all), I just want to say that I’m excited for this year’s edition of Men’s Health Urbanathlon. Ladies are most welcome to join the challenge.
