Filinvest City will be holding Filinvest City Endurance Weekend, a two day event consisting of a 12 hour trail run and a 12 hour mountain bike race, on November 8 and 9 at Filinvest City. Last year, I just dropped by to cover the event and, needless to say, I was quite envious seeing the runners on the trail. This year, I’m looking forward to running trails again in the middle of the city! Come and join! (more…)

Below is the master list and important dates to remember. See you soon Dreamers! (more…)
For this year, Avon Philippines invites you all to wage WAR! W.A.R. or Walk And Run against Breast Cancer, that is. (How clever is that?!) The run will be held on October 12, 2014 in SM Mall of Asia with a walk, 5k, and 10k distance. (more…)
August 25 is National Heroes Day in the Philippines. It is a national public holiday, held every last Monday of August, to honor and remember the country’s National heroes, men and women in Philippine history whose acts of courage enabled the Philippines to grow as a nation. Our known national heroes are: Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio,Emilio Aguinaldo, Apolinario Mabini, Marcelo H. del Pilar, Sultan Dipatuan Kudarat, Juan Luna, Melchora Aquino, Gabriela Silang.
During National Heroes Day, honor and salute are also given to those unknown heroes whose lives were given up for our peace and democracy. Although there are commemorations and parades and wreath laying at shrines, etc., many of our youth no longer appreciate or know the significance of this day. Hence, HERO Foundation, through its upcoming activities, in cooperation with the Armed Forces of the Philippines, hopes to draw attention back to the importance of this day, to celebrate, with gratitude, for all our heroes.

Condura Skyway Marathon Run for a Hero 2015 is now open for registration! The race will be held on February 1, 2015 at Filinvest City. They are expecting over 15,000 runners for the race!
Condura didn’t put up a race for 2014, but it seems like they’re more than making up for it with this early registration opening for 2015. I’m pretty psyched about this race for 3 reasons: 1) It’s on the same weekend that our TBR Dream Marathoners will be running their longest run, so I’m betting a lot of them will do their 30k at this race (and I’m going to join in on the fun! Woot!), 2) The beneficiary is Hero Foundation, a cause which I am an ambassador of and which all my races also support, and lastly, 3) It’s Condura Skyway Marathon for God’s sake, who doesn’t join this run?!
