#BeatCoachRio by Safeguard Active

Last June 5, Safeguard Active sponsored a unique running event in Bonifacio Global City. Coined #BeatCoachRio, this event tested the speed of runners in their attempt to beat Coach Rio's 2.3-second 20-meter dash. Runners had two chances, and their best (and fastest) would be their recorded time.

The rain did not stop runners from attending the event, and it came to a point wherein participants had to run in batches to save up time. In the end, the top 5 runners competed with Coach Rio, with JP Sabido being the ultimate runner beating our favorite coach.

Of course I did not miss the opportunity to have my pic taken with Coach Rio in the event photo booth!

And of course, the usual fun hang-out with fellow bloggers!

Oh I forgot to mention, I did not even attempt to wear my running gear going to the event since I sort of guessed what the event will be like. I just knew I couldn't beat Coach Rio. So hats off to the one who beat him!

  1. It was a very entertaining night and the thrill went on until the very last part of the event.

    By the way, who among you know the humble beginning and heart touching story of coach Rio? Well, if you don't know him that much, then read his inspiring story now.
