The first ever adidas King of the Road (KOTR) Southeast Asia Championship had just concluded in Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila, Philippines, and I’d say it’s the most “international” race I’ve experienced in the Philippines so far. Here’s my recap on this outstanding race:
Today is the first day of claiming Nike We Run Manila race kits, and I’d say I’m impressed that the runners didn’t wait for the last day before claiming their kits as attested by the big turnout even before the collection opened. Here are some scenes from the first day:
This is probably the only way I can describe the video below, scenes from the 35th National MILO® Marathon Manila Eliminations. I posted it here to motivate me (and hopefully, others) whenever rain pours on my (our) runs. Too bad I missed the water therapy. 🙂
SM Mall of Asia was again host to another major running event, the Rexona Run 2011, which was one of the biggest races in the country lately. Aside from serving as a preview to half of the following MILO Marathon route, the race was also a ticket to more adventures, and the debut of new…
