Rexona Run To Your Beat

From the gun start to the finish line, this year’s Rexona Run promises to push running enthusiasts, professional runners and recreational runners to DO:MORE.

Mar Corazo, Rexona Brand Manager says, “We are always finding ways to make the Rexona Run more exciting than the last. This year, we wanted the Rexona Run to appeal to more people and inspire them to Do:More.”

As one of the most sought after races in the Philippines, runners look forward to the Rexona Run every year for its exciting twists, prizes and categories.

On October 20, 2013 at the Mall of Asia Grounds, be prepared for a different kind of race—the Rexona Run To Your Beat, the Philippines’ first ever multi-sensorial after-midnight run where live music pushes people to run further and culminates in a party at the finish line.

“This was inspired by the insight that when you run to the beat of the music, you run faster, you go further, you’re energized to do more,” said the Rexona Brand Manager.

From the first gun start at 3AM, live performances will be scattered around the race track, adding a very different take on running. The 5k race will have performances by Delta Street, Sandwich, The Diegos, DJ Mia Ayesa, Deuce Manila and DJ Nina.  The 10k race will get the chance to run to Funk Avy and DJ Khai.  While the 21k race will see all performances, as well as the finale concert of Rico Blanco, Elmo Magalona and DJ Mars Miranda. 

Coach Rio, Rexona partner and running expert says, “It’s been proven that listening to music unleashes your energy, allowing you to run further.”

In line with Rexona’s DO: MORE philosophy, Run to Your Beat presents the perfect avenue for all individuals to DO:MORE – whether you’re an avid runner or leisure runner.

Run to Your Beat is also the ultimate test of Rexona’s efficacy because the product keeps you dry and fresh from the start of the race until the end of the party.

Alaska IronKids: Inspiring Future Champions

*** Press Release ***
Inspiring Future Champions 
Alaska IronKids Philippines has become a training ground for young Filipino triathletes

Alaska IronKids Philippines triathlon started out as a Sunday fun run for kids but in just a short time, it quickly developed into a national sporting event that has nurtured and developed young local triathletes. Triathlon is composed of three disciplines: swimming, biking and running. Now on its fourth year, the event has attracted hundreds of young participants, all wanting to conquer the IronKids course, considered to be the junior counterpart of the prestigious triathlon event, IronMan.

According to coach and race director Ani De Leon-Brown, Alaska IronKids Philippines has become, in recent years, a training ground for the country’s aspiring young triathletes. It is part of the Alaska Sports’ Nutrition. Action. Champion. program, along with Alaska Football and Basketball Camps  and the Jr. NBA presented by Alaska. The program hopes to encourage children to play outdoors or get  into sports and learn the values of determination, discipline, hardwork and teamwork.  “When I was in the national team for triathlon, our main problem was the lack of depth in the talent pool. There were only a few young boys and girls, who wanted to take up the sport seriously and take it to the next level. But now, there are a lot of them because of events like these. I am very proud of the program. Through the years, you could really see the growth.”

Arno Baetz is one of those aspiring young talents. At this year’s Alaska IronKids Philippines Triathlon leg in Mactan Shangri-La in Cebu, Baetz dominated the 13 to 14 year-old boys category. Based in Hong Kong, the 13-year-old flies to the country every now and then to join competitions and to train, hoping to one day fulfill his dream of becoming an IronMan. The Filipino-German can’t thank his parents enough for supporting his dream. “In every race, they are there to cheer me on. Their confidence in me motivates me even more to do better.” According to him, getting into triathlon has changed his lifestyle a lot. “I eat healthier. I don’t sleep late. No more videogames for me,” says Baetz.

Judging from the parents, siblings and friends who came to support the participants in the Cebu leg, Alaska IronKids Philippines has become a family affair. Parents could be seen waving handkerchiefs and shouting words of encouragement. And what is great about the Alaska IronKids, there are no losers. All finishers are given medals as long as they complete the course.

Despite the spirit of fun, the race does honor the hard work and commitment to excellence of young triathletes who set aside time for training to develop their skills. Leading the pack at this year’s Alaska IronKids are Arno Baetz and Shaia Ruth Uy, who ruled the 13 to 14 years old category and Bambam Manglicmot and Lauren Plaza, who finished first in the 11-12 years old category.  Others who figured in the top three were Craig Uy and Nathan Nalo, Nicole Eijansantos and Samantha Borlain, who were second and third finishers in the 11 to12 years old boys and girls respectively. Justin Chiongbian and Brent Valelo, on the other hand, were second and third placers in the 13 to 14 years old boys while Alexandra Leather and Margarita Delos Reyes trailed after first placer Shaia Uy in the 13 to 14 years old girls category.

This year, more than 200 kids signed up for the Cebu leg. While the participants of the 13 to 14 years old and 11-12 years old categories were able to race, the races for the two other age categories: 9 to 10 years old and 7 to 8 years old were canceled due to bad weather. For the Alaska IronKids organizers, safety of the participants comes first.

Caroline Borlain, mother of Tara, this year’s defending champion in the 9 to 10 years old girls category, agreed with the decision. “We wanted Tara to race because she prepared for this and trained hard but Tara herself said to us, ‘It’s God’s will.’ And she’s right. The money we spent for the trip is nothing compared to the anxiety it will cost us if we let her race in that kind of weather. The safety of the children should be top priority.”

All is not lost, according to Borlain, because there is still another triathlon event coming up in October. Her daughters Tara and Samantha are already looking forward to the race.

The triathlon is slated on October 20 and will be held at the Palms Country Club, Alabang.  Children or parents who want to know more about the clinics or register for the triathlon race should check out the Alaska IronKids Philippines website at For more information, visit and @ALASKAsportshub on twitter.

Nike Unveils New Running Technologies

*** Press Release ***
Four new innovations are designed to enhance the running experience

NIKE, Inc., the world’s leading running brand, today unveiled four new innovations at an event at the company’s global headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. The new products are designed to enhance runners’ natural abilities and were guided by Nike’s "Nature Amplified" design ethos, an approach that is focused on designing for the body in motion and fueled by scientific data and athlete insights. Two new running shoes were introduced  — the Nike Free Flyknit and Nike Free Hyperfeel — along with two new apparel technologies, Aeroloft and Dri-FIT Knit.

“Innovation is not about creating for its own sake, it's about creating something better, designing with a purpose. Running is the heart and soul of Nike and it’s the birthplace of a constant stream of new innovations that will drive the company forward,” said Mark Parker, President & CEO of NIKE, Inc.

The Nike Free Flyknit is the fusion of two of Nike’s most iconic footwear technologies — the compressive Nike Flyknit upper and the flexible Nike Free outsole. The Nike Free Flyknit upper features zoned performance mapping and a second-skin fit. The shoe provides the benefits of natural motion and a snug, supportive fit in a single shoe.

The Nike Free Flyknit
Designed to feel like an extension of the body by minimizing layers between the foot and the ground, the Nike Free Hyperfeel delivers a natural motion sensation for the runner. A drop-in insole made from Lunarlon foam allows the foot to have direct contact with Lunarlon cushioning. The ultra-thin waffle outsole uses strategically placed waffle pistons for grip and feel, allowing the foot to get closer to the ground.

The Nike Free Hyperfeel
Nike Aeroloft technology also debuted in the ultra-light Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest, designed to keep runners warm and comfortable in cooler conditions. Insulating down has been combined with precision ventilation that allows heat to escape the body so athletes stay dry.

The Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest
Dri-FIT Knit is an ultra-soft, lightweight fabric engineered to help athletes maintain optimal performance temperature in a variety of conditions. The technology employs visibly different knit patterns to aid breathability, while seamless construction ensures a smooth fit free of distraction.

The Nike Dri-FIT Knit
“Nature Amplified means designing for bodies in motion and creating incredible new products that work intuitively with the human body,” said Trevor Edwards, NIKE Brand President. “The footwear and apparel we’ve unveiled today is based on insights from athletes and runners at every level, combined with extensive research in our Sport Research Lab. These innovations are data-driven, but body-led."

Avon Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer Manila Run on October 13

Avon invites You to Do Something Beautiful Against Breast Cancer
Register for this year’s Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) Manila Run beginning August 12

Up to this day, breast cancer remains the top killer of Filipino women, creating an urgent call to every individual—not just those afflicted with the disease—to step up and take part in the fight against this life-threatening condition.

Simply knowing such facts does not change things, but concrete action towards better prevention, treatment and support, in whatever form, can go a long way. Avon, the foremost corporate advocate of breast cancer, invites every Filipino to seize the opportunity to do something through the 2013 Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) fundraising event.

Since its Philippine launch in 2002, it has been Avon KGBC’s  mission to help provide access to care and support to medically under-served women. This year, the company for women is once again leading the charge to gain further support for the cause by launching the ‘Do Something Beautiful Against Breast Cancer’ Campaign, the idea behind which is simple enough – it speaks to the Filipino’s innate trait of being matulungin or helpful, doing something for someone because you are capable and are willing to help another in need.

GMA 7 star Solenn Heussaff, the cause’s newest ambassador, joins Avon in inviting everyone to concretize their commitment to the fight against breast cancer that culminates with its annual Manila Run Event.

Solenn Heussaff, the cause’s newest ambassador, joins Avon in inviting everyone to concretize their commitment to the fight against breast cancer that culminates with its annual Manila Run Event on October 13, at the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds.

Proceeds from the event, which will be held at the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds on October 13, will go to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) Breast Care Center and selected provincial hospitals.

Registration for the Run will be held beginning August 12, 2013 at the following Chris Sports Branches: SM North Edsa; SM Megamall; SM Mall of Asia; Glorietta 3, Makati; Festival Mall, Alabang; and Fitness and Athletics (The Fort).
