Rexona Run 2012 Postponed

In light of the recent adverse weather condition, the Rexona Run 2012 has been postponed. Please refer to the announcements released by both RunRio and Rexona.

Coach Rio’s Official Message regarding the postponement:

Dear Runners, 

Due to the heavy rains, we will be postponing the REXONA RUN 2012 event to SEPTEMBER 23, Sunday still at the Mall of Asia grounds. We feel that due to the current calamity, it would be inappropriate to still push through with the event. We have taken into consideration that a lot of the runners may be living in affected areas, and that our route marshals are part of the AFP so th

 ey will be busy with relief operations. 

Instead, we will be focusing our efforts on relief operations this weekend, particularly in Marikina. You are very much welcome to participate or help out in any way. More details will be posted soon.

Thank you for understanding. Please stay safe and dry!

Coach Rio


In its commitment to give the best running experience to its runners, the Rexona Run 2012 slated this Sunday, August 12, 2012 at the Mall of Asia grounds has been postponed.

Due to the extreme weather that is hitting Metro Manila and other parts of the country, Rexona, together with RunRio, has decided to move this much-anticipated event to a later date to ensure that the logistics are fully in place to give participants a safe and enjoyable
run. This will give the race officials and participants who are affected by the heavy rains and flooding time to recover and recharge before the run.

Now on its third year, the Rexona Run has become one of the most anticipated running events. This year, participants will prove their mettle and get a chance to win cash prizes, medals and bragging rights in the 21K Solo, 21K Relay and 5K races. Flat screen TVs and mobile phones will also be given away to lucky participants.

The top 3 finishers in the 21K Solo take home P7,000, 5,500, and 4,000; while P5,000, 4,000, and 3,000 will be awarded to each member of the top finishers in the 21K Relay division. Finally, the top three finishers in the 5K category bring home P4,000 for first,
3,000 for second and 2,000 for third.
