RUNRIO TRILOGY 2017: Half Marathon / Afroman Distance / Philippine Marathon

10:27:00 PM

Thank God it's holiday today and will be home shortly... I had the privilege to see Coach Rio dela Cruz of RUNRIO Events Inc. again during the RUNRIO Trilogy 2017 at Okada Manila earlier today. 

This is one of the most awaited run series that would attract an average of 12,000 runners per leg all over the Philippines. The first leg features a half-marathon (P1800) including 10KM (P1400) and 5KM (P1100) race come June 25th, 2017 to be followed by Coach Rio's very own Afroman distance which is a 32-KM run on August 13th with shorter distance as follows: 21 / 10 / 5 kilometers. Majority of the runners nowadays consider the 32KM as the ideal race for first-timers who aim to finish their very first full marathon. Last but not least or the final leg will happen on October 1st having a full marathon of 42KM which also includes 21 / 10 / 5 kilometers race. The anticipated RUNRIO Trilogy Awards Night will award runners with the highest distance of all 3 races. 

RUNRIO Trilogy started in 2010 with the purpose of providing a progressive running program for those who want to achieve and finish a full marathon. This 2017 will also feature Dingdong Dantes as the event ambassador who also enjoys running on his free time, also the founding Chairman of YesPinoy Foundation. 

“We are excited to launch the RUNRIO Trilogy race series because there are many running enthusiasts out there who are looking forward to this event. This year marks the 7th year of RUNRIO Trilogy, whose main objective is to educate runners to train and race progressively,” said award-winning actor Dantes. “Aside from this, part of the proceeds of this year’s race series will go to YesPinoy Foundation to support the organization’s philanthropic works” added Dantes.

The announcement of the RUNRIO Trilogy series is part of RUNRIO Events, Inc.’s expansion program that will bring more running activities to the public in the coming months. 

I am also happy to share with other runners that RUNRIO will bring in more exciting races this year such as trail running and obstacle runs. 

"Heart to Finish" or #HEARTTOFINISH has also been launched as RUNRIO's new campaign expected to become all participants' mantra for all races. 

“We at RUNRIO understand that people join races not just to run. It’s more because of their desire and passion to be able to finish their 21k, 32k or 42k races with different motivations. We believe that if you run with your heart, anything is possible” said Coach Rio dela Cruz, President of RUNRIO Events, Inc.

Adidas is the official RUNRIO Trilogy apparel. 
During the media launch, the online registration was opened as one of the highlights of the event while onsite registrations for all interested participants will start come May 6th, 2017 at Adidas Greenbelt 3, Adidas TriNoma, Adidas Solenad 3, Adidas BGC and Toby's SM MOA.  

“I would like to invite all those who like running to join the RUNRIO Trilogy 2017. This unique running series will definitely provide runners a chance to train and prepare properly and a chance to show how far they can go when they run with their heart,” said Coach Rio dela Cruz, RUNRIO Events, Inc. President.

This year's RUNRIO Trilogy is made possible by Adidas, Gatorade & Okada Manila. Also to be supported by Active Health, Summit Water and Garmin Philippines.
