NatGeo Earth Day Run - Additional Slots

Last weekend ago, Meowth and I dropped by at Greenbelt to have us registered for NatGeo's Earth Day Run. Reaching the registration area, we learned that there's only 3km and 21km slots remaining and the 5km and 10km have been sold out. Bummer! Meowth was forced to register for the half-marathon category and ditching the original plan of doing ten kilometers.

On top of that, 21km registrants have to be satisfied with getting a "small" singlet. They've already ran out of other sizes. Good thing is that we are participating the event to support its advocacy. We liked the idea that the organizers will be planting 3 trees under your name. To those who haven't registered but intending to, there's good news! Organizers of the NatGeo Earth Day Run 2013 have decided to add 2,000 new race slots! These additional slots were made available starting this week on a first-come, first-served basis

Here's the breakdown for your reference:
3km = 400 slots
5km = 700 slots
10km = 400 slots
21km = 200 slots (race kit with complete inclusion)
21k = 300 slots without race singlet at a lower registration fee of PHP780

Other important information:
1. Online registration have been closed as slots intended for it have already been sold out.
2. Once these 2,000 additional slots have been sold-out, registration at the Greenbelt 3 kiosk will already be closed.
3. 300 slots for 21km with a lower registration fee of PHP780 is available without a race singlet, all other race inclusions meant for 21k however will still be provided.

RunRio Awards 2013

David Beckham in climacool® Revolution

April 2013 – adidas presents the climacool® Revolution running shoe, a 360° ventilation running experience for the coolest run. The latest edition of cool running, which provides ventilation from all sides for improved running performance, can be seen on the feet of sports superstar David Beckham in adidas’ latest TV commercial

New ventilation channels across the outsole and the use of climacool® material on the upper of the shoe help sweat to evaporate. In addition, the COOLEVER lining, a special clover-shaped yarn, keeps the foot cool, dry and comfortable during the run. The achieved performance benefit of 360° ventilation reduces thermal stress and discomfort during workouts and results in increased running performance

The benefit of 360° ventilation is highlighted in the new climacool® launch film which shows David Beckham on a run in the summer heat. While the rest of the city is trying to get any bit of breeze with the help of hand-held fans and window-mounted air conditioners, Beckham enjoys a cool and ventilated run in his climacool® Revolution. Directed by Nathan Price and developed by 180LA, the film will launch in both a 15-second and a 30-second version in time for the shoe’s global retail launch

The new climacool® Revolution running shoe is available as of April 2013 in adidas Sport Performance stores and other sports retailers nationwide with a recommended retail price of PHP 6895
