FIC (Fox International Channel) Fun Run 2011

The Simpsons, American Dad, Bones, Burn Notice, Criminal Minds, Family Guy, Hell's Kitchen, Lie To Me, NCIS, and White Collar are just some of the programs that I love. And all of them are delivered by FOX. Unfortunately my cable provider doesn't offer it. Well at least in the package that I am in. I envy my friends where they have it by default. Time for a switcheroo?

For the meantime, I will just have to settle in participating Fox International Channel's fun run. And maybe, just maybe, my cable provider may find it in their hearts to include FOX as part of my package for free.  Its a long shot but who knows.  By the way, I am hoping that Homer and Bart Simpson will participate in the 500m costume run.  Now that's a sight to see

Team Alpha1 Hits Alabang

Team Alpha1 will be visiting Alabang (again) this Sunday to participate in Asian's Hospital fun run.  The team will be spread out on both short and long distances.  Would love to join but since I have a scheduled long run today, I've decided to take the backseat.  Yours truly will serve as the "un"official photographer of the said event. 

My lens will not only capture my teammates but will also randomly take some snaps of the other participants.  Will I be able to capture your moment?  I hope so.  This will mainly depend on the frame rate (or FPS) of the camera that I will be using and on how fast my clumsy hands will be able to press the shutter button.  I'm no pro so please forgive the amateurish shots

I will be loitering around 500 meters near the finish line.  So no matter how tired you are, don't forget to smile.  As a public service, here's some important details you'd need on race day

FREE Bus Ride
• Registered runners can avail of a free bus ride
• Runners can register at Riovana BHS (present complete name and bib/bib number to qualify)
• Limited slots only
Pick up point on race day will be at Riovana BHS
• Assembly time is 3:00AM. The bus will leave at exactly 3:30AM
• Post-race, bus leaves Alabang by 8:30AM

Assembly Time and Gun Start
21km - 4:30AM - 5:00AM
10km - 5:00AM - 5:30AM

PRESS RELEASE

The 2012 Unilab ActiveHealth calendar is off to a raring start, as the registration for its first event this year—Run United 1 on March 4—picks up pace. On its sixth offing, Run United 1 continues to reinvent itself. It is set to once again offer runners a number of firsts.

“This is our first hurrah this year and we very pleased with the enthusiastic response so far from the running community. Registration, both online and in selected stores, is rapidly picking up. We are looking forward to another active year,” said Alex Panlilio, Head of Unilab Active Health. Run United 1 will still feature five race categories: Ceelin 500m dash for kids, 3K, 5K, Enervon 10K, and Enervon HP 21K.

Organizers Unilab Active Health and RunRio Inc. are introducing several new features to give participants a better running experience. These include new race routes, better hydration stations, improved security, safety marshals, new freebies, more exciting ActiveHealth village, among others.

Starting this year, the RunRio Trilogy/Run United Series of races will have different registration or pre-race giveaways. For Run United 1, it will be a race belt or bib holder.
Even the medals for 21K finishers are made more special. It will be a collectible medal, thus those who will participate all of the three Run United races during the year, can put together all their finisher medals and form a big Run United medal.
“The joint Run United medals will serve as a true testament of the runners’ commitment to an active and healthy lifestyle. It is a good souvenir of all their 2012 Run United races combined,” said Lester Castillo, brand manager of Active Health.

Besides the new medals, half marathoners will have their gun start at Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig and finish off at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.
“We are very excited about the Run United races this year because we have so much in store for the runners. We are introducing a number of new features to give them even better quality runs because that is what Run United is all about,” said Rio dela Cruz of RunRio Inc.

Children also get to have their own singlet, too. After all, Run United prides itself for having the first to introduce a 500-meter dash in its races. “We really like to get the children get started in running young. So besides the other unique giveaways for them, the singlet is another come-on for them,” cited Dela Cruz.
Interested runners can register at these stores: Riovana at Bonifacio Global City and Katipunan, Quezon City; Toby’s at SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City; and The Athlete’s Foot at Robinson’s Galleria, Ortigas. For online registration, check details at www.runrio.com. Registration is until February 26, but race kits may run out before then, so the organizers urge everyone to register early to secure slots.

Run United is for the benefit of Gawad Kalusugan (the health program of Gawad Kalinga) and Hero Foundation. “Run United is part of Unilab’s advocacy through Unilab Active Health to promote an active lifestyle among Filipino families. Each event has been carefully designed and scheduled with the help of the race organizers and experts to allow each participant to sustain their active lifestyles throughout the year. We would like to thank all those who continue to support the Active Health programs” said Alex Panlilio, Head of Unilab Active Health.
Run United 1 is only the first of the Run United series. Run United 2 is set for June 17 and Run United 3 on September 16. Run United’s very own full marathon or 42K race, the Run United Philippine Marathon, is also slated for October 28.

The following are the other events of Unilab Active Health lined up for this year: The Bull Runner Dream Marathon, March 18; Tri United 1, April 14-15; Tri United 2, June 30-July 1; Tri United 3, November 10-11 as well as running and triathlon clinics all year round.
