Veterans Ruled the Pilot Race in Urdaneta

In true festive fashion, the city of Urdaneta showed its overwhelming enthusiasm in the first race of the 41st National MILO Marathon. Around 12,000 runners hit the streets to race the finish line. Running veterans Julius Sermona and Christabel Martes took the spotlight and placed first in the 21K male and female categories, respectively. They each took home the top purse of P10,000 in cash and a trophy, and booked their slots to the National Finals in Cebu on December 3 to try and claim the MILO Marathon King and Queen titles.

In the male category, Julius Sermona clocked in with the time of 1:15:31, followed by Hernani Sore in the second place (1:17:21), and Romulo Ballnas Jr. in the third place (1:20:45). In the female category, Christabel Martes posted a time of 1:23:45, while Rowena Valdez finished second place (1:47:12), and Quipsie Isabel Milagros in third (1:54:10).

Sermona believes that joining marathons not only stimulates one athlete’s passion for running, it also provides physical fitness. “Running, for me, is all about health,” he said. “Physical fitness is integral to a runner’s development, especially to the kids and I am very proud to be a part of a community that promotes these values.”

In the distaff side, former SEA Games athlete Martes easily raced her way to the finish line. Augmented by the spacious roads and smooth terrain, the Baguio native revealed that the features enabled her to comfortably outpace her closest competitors, “I just stayed at my own pace,” she said. “I am very pleased with the route and it helped me stayed in the lead from start to finish.”

With a new feather on her cap, Martes shared that humility remains to be her most important value. “Whenever I win, I always remind myself to be humble,” she said. “I am happy and thankful to be called as an inspiration to many, and I hope that I continue to do so while keeping my feet on the ground.”

More than a staunch advocate of Philippine sports and Filipino athletes, the National MILO Marathon is also a platform that empowers children nationwide. For the past 7 years, the National MILO Marathon’s Help Give Shoes advocacy, in partnership with Department of Education, has inspired 70,000 aspiring athletes to fulfill their dreams by donating brand new pairs of running shoes. This year, the Help Give Shoes advocacy will be donating 5,000 pairs to underprivileged school children.

The National MILO Marathon will continue in Laoag (July 23), Metro Manila (July 30), Angeles (August 6), Tarlac (August 13), Naga (August 27), Lucena (September 03), Lipa (September 10), Tagbilaran (September 24), Roxas (October 1), Iloilo (October 8), General Santos (October 15), Davao (October 22), Butuan (November 12), and Cagayan De Oro (November 19). The National Finals in Cebu City will be on December 3.

adidas x Parley Run for the Ocean

adidas and Parley for the Oceans announced their first global initiative with the launch of adidas x Parley Run for the Oceans, a global celebration that took place during World Oceans Day week (June 5th-11th).

adidas, Parley for the Oceans and Runtastic have come together, harnessed the power of sport as a catalyst to inspire positive action, and motivated people to get behind the cause, with each step spreading awareness of the threat plastic pollution poses to the oceans. adidas x Parley Run for the Oceans enabled all athletes to unite through running and became part of the clean oceans movement that made a difference in everyone’s lives.

Runners from around the world united virtually and showed their commitment to ocean health, one mile at a time. As they run, people listened to a dedicated Story Run and learn about the ocean’s delicate ecosystem, the Parley AIR strategy and how they can all be part of the solution. Runners contributed their mileage and helped spread the message.

During World Oceans Day, adidas x Parley’s first-ever Run for the Oceans brought their communities of runners, ocean ambassadors, environmentalists, artists, influencers and media together, inspired collective action and affected positive change in the world. Taking over New York City at night, a collective of over 500 runners took part in a 5km run illuminating the city streets with blue lights as they go, taking a stand for the conservation of our oceans.

To truly galvanize action through sport, and raise awareness by inspiring the masses to commit to the oceans, an innovative Runtastic Cardio App feature has been created. This Story Run, curated by a team of ocean advocates, is based on unconscious interval training and serves as an ongoing source for raising awareness of the cause.

Tabal Victorious in Tamarack Ottawa Race

Ottawa, Canada – Logging another record-breaking feat, MILO Marathon Queen Mary Joy Tabal has clinched first place in the women’s division of the half marathon category of the Ottawa Race. The elite runner from Cebu not only bested her personal record, she also marked a significant milestone for breaking the Philippine record time for the 21K race. The Ottawa Race slot was Tabal’s grand prize for winning the 40th National MILO Marathon National Finals in Iloilo last 2016.

Known as the Canada’s largest and fastest marathon, the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend is one of two International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Gold Label races in the country, attracting a world contingent of about 43,000 runners because of its flat and fast race course.

Tabal clocked in with a time of 1:16:29, beating the old Philippine half-marathon record of 1:18:45. The 27-year-old elite runner gained an insurmountable lead against other 13,446 contenders, placing 1st in the women’s category, and 8th in the overall male and female category.

The minor intermittent leg pains did not cause Tabal to flail during the race. She instead kept a strong and swift pace, which eventually aided her to successfully complete her rally to the finish line. “I did not expect to win,” she said. “My only target was to break my personal and the Philippine 21K record but I am so happy that I was able to exceed my performance and win the women’s race!”

Tabal attributed her victory to the comprehensive training she had undergone in Cebu and Italy, to which she finds as no easy feat. “Training with other world-class elite runners is a different ballpark,” she said. “However, it helped me gain confidence, and I also got the best motivation from my coaches and my teammates. Their trust in my abilities pushed me to believe in myself and persevere to be even better.”

“I am once again grateful to all the supporters who have been following my journey and to MILO for giving me this opportunity. MILO is very close to my heart because they are always with me wherever I go to compete,” she said. “I am very proud to achieve this victory with MILO!”

MilestonePod. Make Any Shoe Smart

Make any shoes smart with the MilestonePod, your portable run lab. Pair with the MilestonePod App to uncover unique run/walk data and insights. Because HOW you run matters! For no extra effort, you will get cadence, stride length, ground contact, foot strike, rate of impact, leg swing and total shoe mileage. In addition, the Pod tracks basic performance measures like pace, distance, steps and calories - all in a fun and easy-to-use interface. Learn about your form and gait to improve performance, stay healthy and find the right shoe. Just clip the MilestonePod onto your shoe and go. There are no buttons, no charging and no need for a GPS signal. It works the same indoor or out. It's always on, already ready to collect your data. After you run, sync the Pod to your MilestonePod App in seconds. Do you use a GPS watch or app? No problem! Now you can get unique foot-based metrics too. The MilestonePod remains attached to your shoe for the life of your shoes, then can be reset and transferred to a new pair.



FAQ

Is the Pod ready right out of the box? What about calibration?
You must sync with the MilestonePod App BEFORE your first run or walk, to ensure the correct date and time. The Pod is about 94% accurate right out of the box. Like any tracking device, it may need calibrated one or two times. After proper calibration, you should expect 97% accurate or better. Calibration pushes a personalized algorithm to your Pod, based on your specific gait.

Does it matter where I attach the Pod on my shoe?
Yes. Placing the Pod 3/4 of the way down towards your toe provides the most accurate tracking. Specifically, if your shoe has a drop of 8mm or above, use the second lace cross from your toe. If your shoe has a drop below 8mm, use the third lace cross from your toe.

How does the Pod know when I run or walk?
The short answer is: when you hold a cadence of 100 steps per minute for at least 6 minutes. Here are all Pod’s parameters:
1 A “Session” starts when your cadence is 100 spm or more, for 6 minutes or more.
2 The Pod sees pauses and erases them. A “Pause” is a drop under 100 spm for less than 30 minutes. If a pause is longer than 30 minutes, the session will end.
3 A session is considered a “Run” when your cadence averages above 140 spm.
4 A session is considered a “Walk” is when your cadence averages above 100 spm and below 140 spm.
5 If a session is at least 60% “Running” (over 140 spm), the Pod will trim walks from the beginning and end of the session (i.e. warm-ups or cool-downs).
6 The Pod counts all walking and running within a session, as long as your cadence is above 100 spm.
7 The Pod counts every step towards the shoe life total (odometer feature) even if it’s not part of a Session.

How long will the Pod last?
With care, the Pod should last for multiple pairs of shoes. There are many Pods still in daily use from our first update in July 2014 – not bad for P1,695. When you are ready for new shoes, just “Reset” the Pod: Tap the Pod icon on the App Dashboard, choose RESET then follow the prompts. No data or run history will be lost!

What battery do I need when it’s time to replace?
The battery is a standard CR 2032 watch battery (Lithium 3v) that is easy to find. It sells for about P200 or less. It should last for 4-6 months, depending on amount of use. The Pod “sleeps” when not in use and when the sensor feels motion it wakes up and becomes active, which extends battery life.

Can I use my Pod on more than one pair of shoes?
It is strongly suggest you have a different Pod on each pair of shoes you run or walk in. The Pod is designed (and priced!) to live on one pair of shoes. Here is why:
1 Accuracy – you run differently in different shoes
2 Odometer feature – so you know exactly how many miles are on each pair of shoes
3 Calibration protection – when you calibrate, the value is for your gait cycle for that specific shoe; gait cycle often differs between shoe types
