The Hills Are Alive in Sierra 51050!

It was an awesome morning when running buddies and teams experienced the challenging rolling hills of Tanay, Rizal in the Sierra 51050: Team Comes First last February 23

Running teams, companies and runners from Laguna, Rizal and Manila compete for the title as the Champion for Team Relay and Duo Half Marathon categories. It was a cloudy day with 22°C weather but as early as 1am participants were already in the venue anticipating the race. Sierra 51050 ignites team spirit and encouraged runners to come together in a friendly competition where speed, endurance, tactics and strategy are key elements to win the race

For the Duo Half Marathon, Team Intensity took the title for Champion (Team Intensity Bravo, 1:35:00) and first place (Team Intensity Alpha, 1:40:00) while Team A followed at second place with a time 1:55:14

This is a first concept race for Rundezvous, Inc., known to organize fun runs and runs for a cause. In partnership with Running Atom and Running Free Manila, co-presented by World Balance and Tupperware Brands, the race started and ended in Sierra Madre Hotel & Resort

Vaseline Men XTERRA Off-Road Triathlon 2014

XTERRA Triathlon in Liloan, Cebu will test athletes’ skill once again this 2014. The route will have slight changes, but this year there will be two transition areas. Transition 1(to be announced) will be the starting area for the swim leg and transition to the start of the bike leg. Transition 2 will be in Liloan Elementary School track oval, staging area for the end of the bike leg, start of the run leg and finish line and the expo area

Race Categories and Fees
PHP6,750.00 (USD165.00) Individual FULL - 1500m swim, 35km mtbike ride, 9.2km trail run
PHP9,000.00 (USD215.00) Relay FULL - 1500m swim, 35km mtbike ride, 9.2km trail run
PHP4,500.00 (USD110.00) Individual LITE - 500m swim, 17.5km mtbike ride, 5km trail run
PHO6,750.00 (USD165.00) Relay LITE - 500m swim, 17.5km mtbike ride, 5km trail run

Registration Sites
ROX Bonifacio High Street
ROX Cebu (online)

The race will start at the shores of Liloan. Swimmers will do a 1.5 kilometer of open water swim. For LITE participants, swimmers will do 500 meters straight, one loop course for LITE

Our bike course is a mix of single tracks, fire roads, farmlands, grasslands and paved roads. FULL Tri participants must complete 2 loops of the 18-kilometer bike course while LITE participants must complete one loop. The bike course caters to all types of bikers. Experts will find the course fast and exciting. While beginners will feel it’s challenging. The first portion of the race is a long flat, paved road, perfect for sprinting and securing a place in the pack. Then it’s followed by long climbs while roads change from paved to trail. Trail becomes narrower and racers will encounter mixed vegetation along the course

It has enough single tracks, which challenges any skill level; lots of rolling and steep hills, which test all levels of endurance; fast and quick descents to test handling skills and a few technical portions, which will excite all athletes. The bike course will traverse fire roads and paved roads, crossing different barangays. The terrain of the route changes dramatically from grasslands, forest, jungle terrain and open areas

Our run course is similar to our bike course. Trail is a combination of rolling terrain, single track, fire roads and paved roads. Jungle terrain and grasslands will become a common site for athletes. The Run course is as challenging as the bike course with long technical climbs, followed by dusty and rocky terrain. Participants last year mentioned the run as epic with tough climbs and fast descents

Adidas Unleashes Springblade

Today adidas launches Springblade in the Philippines, the first running shoe with individually tuned blades engineered to help propel runners forward with one of the most effective energy returns in the industry.

Unlike standard EVA midsoles that deliver energy return in a vertical direction, Springblade features 16 forward angled blades made out of a high-tech polymer. The highly elastic blades instantaneously react to any environment, compressing and releasing energy to create an efficient push-off that feels like you have springs under your feet.

“Springblade’s progressive look and blade technology are radically different than any running shoe ever created,” said James Carnes, global creative director of performance at adidas. “At the same time, adidas’ goal is to create a beautiful performance shoe designed to be simple and intuitive.”

Carnes continued, “Every aspect of Springblade is engineered to reflect extensive athlete insights to help make them better. For design inspiration, we drew upon everyday objects that deliver explosive energy return – everything from springboards to pole vaults and motorcycle suspensions.”

Each blade is precisely tuned in geometry, thickness and position for each phase of a runner’s stride to provide support and a full range of movement. Additionally, Springblade’s flexible construction was designed to hug the top of a runner’s foot, locking it in to harness the energy returned from the springs on the outsole.

“adidas is continuing to develop new innovations based on what athletes not only need but demand,” said Mikal Peveto, director of running at adidas America. “We know we have something special with BOOST cushioning introduced earlier this year and we’re confident Springblade will set us apart from the competition once again.”

Peveto continued, “Six years in the making, Springblade provides one of the highest energy returns in the industry.”

aIT (adidas Innovation Team) tested hundreds of materials to ensure each spring produced maximum energy efficiency with every step and conducted rigorous ballistics tests to maintain long-lasting durability. For top performance in all environments, Springblade is seven times more temperature resistant than shoes with adidas’ standard EVA cushioning.

Springblade is available for Php 8995 on February at adidas Bonifacio High Street, Mall of Asia and Planet Sports Power Plant (Rockwell).

adidas running innovates high performance footwear and apparel with easy to understand benefits to help athletes of every level get faster and better for their sport. For more information visit

RU1 2014 Announcement

Message from RUNRIO, INC.

Dear runners,

We understand that there is a demand for us to add more slots for the 21km category. We apologize that we cannot accommodate this request. We have reached the maximum number of 21km runners, and adding more slots would compromise the quality of the execution of the race. In order to guarantee the safety and enjoyment of all runners, we need to set a limit to the number of slots.

For the meantime, registration is ongoing for the 500m dash, 5km, and 10km categories.

We hope you understand. Thank you for your continued patronage of the Runrio Run United Trilogy.

Thank you very much!
