Run United for Wellness

I attended a briefing for the Run United for Wellness earlier today. As part of their thrust to promote healthy lifestyles, Unilab, a leading pharmaceutical company, is the main sponsor for this event.

Starting a healthy lifestyle is made easy with Unilab Run United for Wellness at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig on March 7.

Unilab Run United for Wellness is a health and wellness event for the family with running as the core activity. Aside from the 3 km, 5 km, 10 km, and 21 km categories for adults, there’s also a 500-meter dash for kids to help parents get their children started on a fitness lifestyle.

Family members can have free consultations with running coaches and fitness experts at the Unilab Wellness Village, divided into health zones such as Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Children’s Health, Seniors’ Health, and General Adults’ Health to cater to the specific needs of each family member. Aside from free consultations, the health zones also have interactive games and activities that family members can enjoy.

Runners and their families can register online at www.unilabwellnessevents.com.ph until Feb. 15 or through in-store registration at Runnr store at Bonifacio High Street, New Balance branches at Shangri-La and Glorietta, Planetsports outlets in Trinoma, Alabang Town Center, and Rockwell from Jan 30 to Feb. 21. From Feb. 22 to 28, registration is only at Planetsports Trinoma and Runnr store at Bonifacio High Street,Taguig.

Registered participants can get 20% off on New Balance items. Top finishers can win cash prizes, Unilab gift packs, and New Balance gift certificates worth P5,000. Finishers in the 21 km category will receive a finisher’s medal. The first1,000 finishers in the 21K can also bring home a finisher’s shirt.

Unilab Run United for Wellness is brought to you by Unilab, the country’s largest and leading pharmaceutical and healthcare company that’s behind trusted brands like Alaxan, Ceelin, Enervon, Myra E, Skelan, and Solmux, among many others.

Organized by Finishline and renowned running coach Rio Dela Cruz, Unilab Run United for Wellness is undertaken for the benefit of Children’s Hour and K.I.D.S. Foundation.

Interestingly, they have also taken over where the Nike Running Clinic left off with a running clinic at the ULTRA from 6-8 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday starting February 11 to March 4. I guess this is in preparation for their run.

While I won’t be around for this event as I will be in Bataan, I’m sure plenty of runners, both old and new, will be joining.
