Outbreak in Intramuros: Win a Race Kit!

Wednesday, 2 April 2014  |  Race Announcements

I don’t know how many times I’ve mentioned this to friends: They should have a race that runs through Intramuros. My idea was an international marathon with the course weaving through the walled city of Intramuros, taking the runners through a historical tour of Manila. To my surprise, just yesterday, I found out there’s an Outbreak Mission in Intramuros! It’s not the marathon I dreamed of, but it’s good enough!

I’m not too familiar with Outbreak events, but I’ve visited their website and it looks pretty exciting.  Here’s some more info about the “Mission”:

Zombies will once again invade the metro, this time inside the walls of the majestic Intramuros. Touted as Operation Stronghold, the mission of this Outbreak is to free Dr. Alfonso Adarna from the evil fanatical band of brothers. It’s the familiar fear but with a whole new level of terror presented by the brotherhood, all within the intricate interiors of the famed walled city. It’s an Outbreak like you’ve never seen before!

Anyway, I received a complimentary “access card” today from good ol’ friends from Summit and Nestea, its sponsors, and since I won’t be available to participate in the event which is already this Saturday, April 5, 2014, I thought of giving it away to one lucky reader.  If you’re game, read contest rules below.

Mark Your Calendars: Carbtrim-TBR All Woman Race

Wednesday, 26 March 2014  |  Race Announcements

Women’s Month comes at the perfect time as I announce what I’ve been busy with the past months.  After TBR ULAH Dream Marathon, this is my next baby project.  As always, it’s one that I feel strongly about as a female runner and I can only hope that it can help encourage more women to get fit, gain confidence, realize how powerful they are, and, hopefully, fall in love with running as I have.  So, here goes…(drumroll please)…


Mark your calendars for the CARBTRIM-THE BULL RUNNER ALL WOMAN RACE on July 20, 2014 at Filinvest City, Alabang.  We’ll be having 5k, 10k, and 21k on a friendly and fast course!

It’s going to be a RUN FOR WOMANITY among our sisters, daughters, wives, grandmothers, and all other women in our lives!  Expect lots of bling (a charm bracelet for 21k finishers!), boas (to look utterly gorgeous after your run!), and tutus (for the honorary women aka men in our lives who’ll be allowed to register for very limited slots and run on that day if and only if they wear their tutus!)  Told ya it’s going to be fun!

More details to be released on registration soon!
