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!

All throughout the building, greenery is incorporated as part of the building features. For a cohesive look design pieces are likewise inspired by nature, including the hallway carpets and couches in vibrant green color that are found in the lobby. This also features unique and innovative designs like Kenneth Cobonpue’s “The Bloom Chair,” an award-winning lounge piece reminiscent of the delicate soft petals of the Hibiscus-flower. And to add Filipino touch, the apartments’ interiors have various displays of framed photos of indigenous Filipino materials like the vibrant banig and the intricate barong, which are likewise works of art.

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.

NEW SEASON, NEW AMBITIONS, NEW FOOTWEAR ARSENAL: UNDER ARMOUR AND STEPHEN CURRY LAUNCHES CURRY 3

The newest addition to the reigning MVP’s signature collection is powered by breakthrough technology and infused with game-changing design. If you are a fan of the Under Armour Curry series, check this out!

PRESS RELEASE:

Stephen Curry returns to the court this season with a renewed drive, hunger and focus on the future. Fuelled by Stephen’s unwavering will to always take his game to the next level, Under Armour will drive the game of basketball forward with the latest addition to Stephen’s signature footwear collection, the Curry 3.

Constructed with proprietary technologies and designed to drive the league’s back-to-back MVP to new heights, the Curry 3 is the optimal combination of lightweight support, balance, speed and durability. Powered by Under Armour’s newest breakthrough in fabric technology, Threadborne™, Under Armour and Stephen have created a new shoe that breaks the mould of what to expect from basketball footwear, with innovative technology and design.

Tech Specifications:

• Threadborne™ is a new technology created by Under Armour’s innovators after examining a parachute, specifically paracord – a strong piece of material that is at the equipment’s core. Within the weave construction of paracord, Under Armour discovered ultra-durable yarns and rebuilt them into a fabric engineered to withstand the rigors of an 82 game season and support the two-time MVP as he transcends the limits of the game. The Curry 3 Threadborne fabric is comprised of braided thread that wraps around a larger, corded panel, delivering unparalleled lightweight directional strength and infinite support.
• Meta-Wing lines the heel of the Curry 3 to expressly support the subtalor joint – the joint that connects the ankle and heel bones, and is crucial in terrain balance, pivoting and shock absorption. The shoes create a snug fit that is unrivalled in stabilizing the foot, ensuring the most complete and efficient way to cut and move laterally on the basketball court.
• Anafoam is constructed on the medial to deliver body-mapped fit, lightweight structure and support.
• Charged Cushioning™ is a unique foam technology, which absorbs impact and converts it into a responsive burst, making each stride or change of direction explosive.
• Herringbone Traction: The return of Herringbone traction on the sole of the Curry 3 amplifies stability, grip and support on the court.

“Being able to work directly with my team at Under Armour on the Curry 3 has been an incredible experience,” said Curry. “Our team’s knowledge and expertise on the science of building a shoe is unparalleled, and pairing with what works for my body and my game, I know that we have created something really special. Working in collaboration with my UA team from start to finish on inspiration, design and fit will without question drive us to success.”

“Stephen is an exceptional basketball player whose talent is only exceeded by his will to be better every day, on-and-off the court,” said Dave Dombrow, Chief Design Officer. “Our team is inspired by Stephen’s passion for the game and his ingenuity has driven our partnership to create the world’s most technically innovative shoe in the Curry 3, and to keep driving performance footwear forward in-step with the back-to-back MVP.”

The Curry 3 mid style retails for PHP8,995.00 and is now available in all Under Armour Brand Houses, selected retail partners, and on http://www.underarmour.com.ph with the “Dub Nation Heritage” and the “SC Camo” colourways.

Curry 3 was launched at the PBA Draft Combine last October 27, at the Hoops Center Shaw Blvd. and was awarded to the MVP of this season.
