PRESS RELEASE:

RAAMpage Cycling: Registration for Race Across America Qualifier in the Philippines now open

Do Filipino athletes have what it takes to take on what is known as the world’s toughest bike race? Race Across America (RAAM) is considered by many to be the most challenging of bike races globally because of its gruelling format – non-stop cycling across 12 states. This July 28, 2018, all athletes and cycling enthusiasts from the Philippines and Asia are welcome to experience RAAM through RAAMpage – the first official Southeast Asian qualifier for RAAM. Registration and sign-ups are now open and can be reached via http://www.cyclingraampage.com.

As a qualifier recognized and approved by Race Across America, RAAMpage will be embodying the format of RAAM via a time trial race. The difference; however is that RAAMpage will have 6, 12 and 24 hour time trials to make the race friendlier to athletes and cyclists of all levels. Team David’s Salon, the team behind RAAMpage, wanted to ensure that all cycling enthusiasts would have the opportunity to experience RAAM on the level that they are comfortable with.

“We are extremely excited that Race Across America has recognized our capability – both as athletes and hosts – to put up the first official qualifier in Southeast Asia. We know that RAAM is on the bucket list of many cyclists and we are thrilled to be bringing that experience here and who knows – we may have race finishers who will actually join RAAM” says Carmela Pearson,

head of RAAMpage and herself, a second place mixed-relay finisher in Race Across America in 2017.

David Charlton, owner of Team David’s Salon believes that not only will RAAMpage be a great opportunity to showcase how the Philippines can organize world-class athletic events, he also knows that the Filipino athlete is more than capable of taking on RAAM “I myself was with Carmela and our awesome team of four and we actually placed in the world’s toughest bike race! Imagine when we open this experience to even more Filipino athletes” he concludes.

RAAMPage will be held on July 28, 2018 at The Villages in Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga. For interested participants and more information on RAAMpage, visit http://www.facebook.com/cyclingraampageph and http://www.cyclingraampage.com

Tara, Siargao Racecation?!

Lately, “in” ngayon ang mga foot races which takes runners to different places in the country and at times, out of it. Kasi naman, malaking bagay din ang diversity sa pagtakbo. One, you get to take-in a whole new sight while running (bawas boredom lalo na pag long run!) and then at times, you also get to enjoy a much needed respite, especially if the race venue is out of town – away from the bustling metropolis, ika nga!

If ganyan ang hanap mo sa mga runs mo ngayon, then RunRio has one such race for you! It’s the Siargao International Marathon!

Ang Siargao, sabi ni Wikipedia, “is a tear-drop shaped island in the Philippine Sea situated 800 kilometers southeast of Manila in the province of Surigao del Norte.”. Ako pag na-mention ang Siargao, ang naiisip ko white, sandy beaches and crystal clears waters na patok mag-surfing!

So yun na nga, kung ang trip mo lately ay to “commune with nature” while running and then mag-time out din for a few days after, then maybe the Siargao International Marathon might be the perfect “racecation” for you. 

O pano, tara racecation? Sayo race, akin yun vacation? Haha, cheers!

PRESS RELEASE:

National Geographic celebrates 8 years of environmental advocacy with Earth Day Run 2017

April 23, 2017 marks another of raising the public’s consciousness about environmental issues and health and fitness for National Geographic, which celebrates its eighth straight year of holding Earth Day Run. Presented by the channel and its partners Cherifer Premium and World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF), Earth Day Run 2017 aims to continue the tradition of being one of the biggest running events in the country, expecting scores of running enthusiasts and Eco Warriors to register and run for the environment. The event will be held not only in Manila but simultaneously in the cities of Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Taichung, an initiative that was adopted last year and effectively spread the vision and advocacy of Earth Day Run across Asia.

At Earth Day Run 2017, National Geographic will be celebrating eight years of social awareness through fitness with special program features using the hashtag #8withEDR. With the hopes of mobilizing all the Eco Warriors of previous Earth Day Runs, this year’s event welcomes all previously registered participants with VIP treatment and special loyalty perks to be enjoyed on the day of the run. Participants from previous Earth Day Runs will be given priority placement in front of the starting line at the beginning of the race and can claim their loot bags and finisher shirt at a special express booth. They can also make use of a special warm-up and cool down tent before and after the race to condition themselves and recover in comfort.

This year’s new participants can also join in the celebrations for Earth Day Run’s eighth anniversary by visiting the 8 Years of EDR Gallery at the race village and learning about what the event has accomplished over the years, including the environmental and social initiatives it has benefited with the help of its registered runners. Visitors to the gallery will learn how their participation at Earth Day Run has made a significant impact on certain communities in the Philippines as well as how their actions as individuals can affect the environment.

Earth Day Run 2017 in Manila will be held at the SM Mall of Asia grounds, where participants can join 5K, 10K, 21K and 42K categories. The event encourages and welcomes all types of Eco Warriors to take part, from fun-runners of all ages to the serious marathon runners who regularly compete. This year, Earth Day Run will also be sporting new features for its runners. As a special treat, all race kits will come with LED shoelaces, serving as a badge of pride and as a safety precaution for Eco Warriors running at night or before sunrise. Prizes will also be given to costumed runners who showcase their creativity by coming in their best ensemble made from recycled materials. Finally, to make each Eco Warrior’s voice heard in this run for the Earth, advocacy banners will be hanging above the finish line so that each runner can grab them as they cross to make a shout-out for the environment, keep as a souvenir, and use for all their post-run selfies to amplify the message of acting now to save the environment.

Last year, Earth Day Run participants ran to benefit such causes as saving the Irawaddy dolphins at the Malampaya Sound Research and Conservation Project in Palawan; giving the Earth Hour or “Gift of Life” village in Monreal, Masbate sustainable solutions that reduce carbon footprint; conservation of the Marine Protected Area and coral reef in Apo Reef in Occidental Mindoro; and beefing up reforestation efforts in the Ipo Watershed in Bulacan, which supplies Metro Manila with fresh water. Registered runners at Earth Day Run 2017 will not only experience a fun day of outdoor fitness by joining this year’s event, but will also be doing their part in contributing to National Geographic’s environmental efforts.

“Earth Day Run 2017 will be the biggest version of the race yet, with more expected participants from Manila and four other cities across Asia. We’re also excited to look back on our eight years of environmental advocacy and share and celebrate with our runners the positive change that they helped make possible through the years by joining Earth Day Run. We hope that Earth Day Run 2017 not only brings communities of running enthusiasts together for the common cause of saving the environment but also that it amplifies the important message of doing your own part today to help stop climate change and commit to sustainable solutions to save our beloved planet Earth,” said Charo Espedido, Director and Head of Content and Marketing at FOX Networks Group Philippines.

Interested runners of all ages can join National Geographic’s Earth Day Run 2017 by registering at natgeoearthdayrun.com and from March 1 to April 16, 2017.
