Last Thursday, a number of blogging runners (including me!) were invited to the launch of the Blue Water Day Spa – Innovating Wholeness Fun Run. It was to be a relatively new experience for us because it was a totally different kind of launch. First of, we waited for at least an hour and a half for the event to start – which to runners will translate already to a good number of kilometers ran. Next, the venue was at the Encore (formerly Embassy SuperClub at the Fort Strip) and the mood was not what runners will really expect to be seen in. It was one were glam and fashion is the highlight. You’d be surprised how they have even linked running to fashion.
But then i think it is really what the Blue Water Day Spa Fun Run aims to achieve – to prove that fitness can also be fashionable, that beauty and wellness can really go hand-in-hand. See the video ad for the said event below and further down, the event details. :)
Btw, this race is being organized by Blue Water Day Spa and Event King (the same organizer who brought to us the Lactacyd Team Woman Run) with Coach Rio dela Cruz as Race Director. Well, if this will be a yardstick of how the race will fare, I am betting the participants are in for a lot of freebies and great prizes. ;)
P.S. : We runners kinda miss those run launches wherein we do get to talk about the details of the race in-depth though. ;) Cheers!
