Last February 9, 2008, the Pinoy Ultra Runners composed of Neville Manaois, Elizabeth Siojo, Olive Cortez, Dani Dematera, Peter Rivera, Jose De Vera, Jocelyn Saw, Andrew Chinalpan and Pen Nepomuceno conquered their 2nd Run For Your Life Ultramarathon. They ran 65 km from Banaue to Sagada in 9 to 10 hours. Congratulations to the team for a successful and safe run. They raised a significant amount of funds for the benefit of Kythe.
According to Neville, they will soon be offering training for runners interested in joining ultramarathons. The team is currently planning for two races this year. For those interested, just wait for future posts here.

Lucky for us mere mortals who didn’t have the energy to join their run (at least not yet, right?), the Pinoy Ultra Runners have awesome pics to share. Sit back and drool…
After the success of their first 100km ultramarathon coinciding with the Milo marathon last year, they are at it again! I do hope you can support this honorable, strong, and fearless group of runners who are running from Banaue to Sagada (phew!) for the benefit of chronically-ill children of the Kythe Foundation.

Your feet aching for a new pair of running shoes? This was posted by Princess…
For runners who are using Asics running shoes and who are interested in buying a new pair of Asics, I know someone who sells running shoes (kinsei, kayano, Gt 2120, kanbarra, gel strike etc) for only P2,500 but sizes are only 7 for women and 9 for men. 1 pair per design only. Let me know if you’re interested.
