Running Man: Serious Run, Serious Fun

A few weeks ago I've received an invite with the term Running Man which reminds me of the movie in the 80's entitled Running Man.  I got curious about it so I said yes to the event that I'll be there.  Unfortunately, I was a bit preoccupied in my work that I wasn't able to ask for a leave that day.  So, I requested one of my correspondent to be there in behalf of me.

So, she was there and met with the organizers and other bloggers.  Here's what it is all about and what it is all about.

Are you the Running Man?  Futuretainment Inc. redefines running at Venice Piazza Mckinley Hill, Bonifacio Global City Taguig City on November 17, 2012.  The event will be a sunset run that will start at 4PM and will continue until the evening.  Imagine traversing the rolling terrain of Mckinley Hill then hurdling a thrilling 6 stage obstacle course located in a dedicated lot within Mckinley Hill and designed by only the most exacting adventure enthusiasts. The Peak Attack is sure to give you a kick-start, quite literally, as you scale a mound of earth.  If it isn't a strong grip, leg strength should get you to the next challenge.

Next you have to lift yourself enough to grab the Monkey Bars, all the while keeping a firm hold to keep you from falling into muddy water.  This should take you back to your childhood days at the playground, though the feat is far more than child's play.  If you survive the Monkey Bars, you'll feel the thrill to the finish drawing closer at the Tunnel Crawl.  Conquer your claustrophobia and try to get ahead of the game.  The fun trail continues to the Wall Balance, where your balance will be put to the test as you'll find yourself negotiating a perilous edge, towards the Log Hurdles.  Simulating military boot camp, this obstacle should reveal how much time you've spent working on your legs at the gym, more than just biceps and chest.  Your agility and flexibility are also put to the test.  For the finale, the Net Crawl shall get you inching your way through, between an unwieldy net.

Runners will be grouped in waves to ensure that everyone will be able to comfortably experience the obstacles.  All participants who finish the race receive finisher's medals, but only the three fastest per wave will receive a gold medal.  Your race bib also entitles you to raffle prizes, with one lucky winner receiving the GRAND PRIZE of fifty thousand pesos (Php50,000.00) cash.  And as the event draws to its peak compliment it with the perfect music for that, with the console concoctions of Deuce Manila's Dj's Patty Tiu and Kat De Jesus and the mash up mixes of DJ Funk Avy.

Be 13 years old at least to register at, and, from now until November 10.  Secure a medical clearance from your doctor if you have serious medical condition, and submit a proof of parental consent if you are below 18 years old upon registration.  Then you can run until you've had the most fun of all on November 17, 2012.

For more information, log on to or visit Chris Sports SM North, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, Glorietta, Bonifacio high Street, and Festival Mall in Alabang for a registration form.  Like our Official FB Page, and get FREE, week to week training from our race director, Reijo del Prado.  Prepare to get fit, and have the best time yet!
