2012 Run United Philippine Marathon Sneak Preview to the 42km Finish Area!

It is almost all-systems go for the culmination to the 2012 Run United Series – the first ever Run United Philippine Marathon happening on Sunday, October 28 at the SM Mall of Asia!

There is very good and exciting reasons why both Unilab Active Health and RunRio, Inc. have waited for three years before finally jumping into organizing a full marathon race – they wanted it special, they wanted it to be like no other! And yes, hopefully with what has been meticulously drawn-up, we’ll deliver 42km Finishers a “one-for-the-books”, heart-warming 42km race finish!

So aside from the many surprises right before gun start and during the race proper, here is a sneak preview to what awaits RUPM 42km participants at the Finish Line!

1. A RED CARPET Finish

RUPM 42km race finisher’s deserves no other than a royal treatment upon reaching the finishline! What better way to make this felt than with a finish fit for royalty – a finish line in red carpet!


At RUPM, family, friends and supporters are all within reach and cheering distance to their beloved marathon finishers! More than enough to bring that one last push for a strong finish!


As RUPM marathoners cross the finishline, the unending sound of cowbells will be ringing to signal their successful finish!


In truly PHILIPPINE Marathon fashion, RUPM marathoners will be handed out small Philippine Flags before crossing the finish arch! One affirmation and testament of how one should be a PROUD FILIPINO!


Upon exit from the finish area, RUPM marathoners will be handed the following items:

  • their very-well deserved giant 42km Finisher’s Medal, one that will complete the Run United 2012 Series’s UNITED MEDAL
  • a limited-edition 2012 Run United Philippine Marathon towel
  • a very cold glass/cup of ENERVON HP – the best chocolate recovery drink for marathoners

Not only that, RUPM Marathoners will also be ushered to the 42km Finishers Tent where they will be given a post-race massage and/or stretch – a very much welcome treat for their tired bodies!

Feeling hyped already? I can fully-well understand! But then again, these are just a part of the whole RUPM experience. There are more memorable surprises worth experiencing but we’ll let you have a crack on it first-hand and you all tell us what these were afterwards!

See you all on Sunday for the very first-ever Run United Philippine Marathon! Cheers!


Run United Goes the 42Km Distance

There are marathons, then there’s the Run United Philippine Marathon (RUPM). Everyone is excited to participate in newest addition to the country’s running calendar that will go on a debut run on October 28.

Finally, one of the most-popular running series, Run United is going for a full marathon, as it added 42km to its race categories. And the running community is giving the new ‘mary’ in town its full support.

Unilab Active Health (ULAH) and partner race organizer, Runrio, are certainly pulling out all stops to make the first ever RUPM running success.

“The runners clamored for a marathon from us and we also believe that Run United enthusiasts are up to the challenge of finishing a marathon already, so it’s all systems go for Run United Philippine Marathon,” said Alex Panlilio, head of ULAH.

RUPM, besides being the first marathon jointly organized by ULAH & RunRio, is set to create milestones for participants.

Runners will surely get a memorable start and finish at Run United Philippine Marathon–complete with red carpet, marching bands, exclusive finish arc, colorful balloons, video/photo shots, and the other surprises.

“We want to make sure that participants will not only remember how well organized our events are, we want their participation in our events memorable too by providing them the best race experience possible,” said Panlilio.

According to Panlilio, “We cater to all types of runners, including progressive and elite runners. RUPM is our way of helping them level up to more challenging distances.”

RUPM will also be high on nationalistic touches to celebrate Filipino sportsmanship. Philippine miniature flags will be given to all participants crossing the finish line. The design of the limited edition race singlet also depicts Filipino pride.

There will be separate categories for Filipino and foreign winners, to give credit or recognition to more runners.

The Unilab Active Health Village will also be part of the Run United Philippine Marathon experience. It will be classified in four categories: Active Kids Zone, Health, Sports, & Leisure, Runners’ Lounge and iConnect.

RUPM will also feature short and medium distance categories— the Ceelin 500m dash, Hydrite 3k, Dolfenal 5k, Enervon HP Recovery 10k, Alaxan FR 21k with the highlight, Enervon Activ 42k.

All categories except for 42k and 21k will have start and finishline at the SM Mall of Asia while 42k and 21k will start at Bonifacio Global City and finish at SM Mall of Asia.

42K runners will get to run in three cities: Taguig, Makati and Pasay
