Racers scaled an 8-foot wall, climbed hurdles, scrambled low crawls, dashed on balance beams, passed a scaffolding maze and hopped on tire dumps at the recently held Men’s Health Urbanathlon last November 7, 2010 at the Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Taguig City.
Over a thousand participants ran either a 5-km or a 10-km course in the city-based, multidisciplinary race, which claims to be the most demanding Urbanathlon to date!
Spotted running down the track were personalities like QTV X-Life hosts Gino De La Peña and JC Tiuseco, QTV Ang Pinaka host Rovilson Fernandez, RunnerSpeak host and blogger Noelle De Guzman, GMA reporters Nelson Canlas, Steve Dailisan, Julius Segovia, Dani Tingcungco, Mariz Umali, Raffy Tima and Kara David, Jam 88.3 deejay Hilary Isaac, and Magic 89.9 deejays Tony Toni Bueno, Sam YG and Slick Rick.
Hosted by Magic 89.9 deejay and UAAP sportscaster Boom Gonzalez, the Men’s Health Urbanathlon 2010 was made possible by official sports drink Gatorade, official food sponsor Century Tuna, major sponsors V+ Jeans, MSense, Sun Cellular, minor sponsor Lipout, official heart rate monitor Suunto, official gym partner 360° Fitness Club and registration partner R.O.X. Special thanks to radio partners Magic 89.9, Jam 88.3 and RX93.1. For race results, visit takbo.ph or www.menshealth.com.ph.
