Camp Run Series

CAMP RUN Event Poster

Last month, race organizer ExTribe launched its Camp Run series which is composed of several running events throughout the year all at, where else, Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City hence the series name. Camp Run will feature a military or boot camp theme, a unique race format, and a novel route for the runners. It will also be tailored to encourage continuous participation rather than competitiveness, and will ultimately be developed to become a nationwide program.

Race: CAMP RUN Train/Race/Serve
Date: August 20, 2011 (Saturday)
Venue: Camp Aguinaldo QC
Assembly Time: 5:00PM
Race Start: 5:30PM


  • 5K – P400
  • 10K – P600
  • Period: July 20 to August 18, 2011

  2. One of its beneficiaries is 57-75 Movement: Reverse the Education Crisis which iamNinoy-iamCory Runners Group, a group I’m a member of, supports as well

On its 125th anniversary, Avon will stage a nationwide race called “Avon Run to 125,000 Kisses” to raise funds to essentially “kiss” breast cancer goodbye. It’s going to be a walk/run event held at SM Mall of Asia on October 2, 2011. I’ll be there! Hope to see you all.

Mommy Milkshake Marathon 2011

Tuesday, 26 July 2011  |  Race Announcements

For those of you who’ve been reading this blog since it started in 2007, you know that I’m a big fan of Mommy Milkshake Marathon. There hasn’t been a year when I missed this fun run.  Why? Here are the reasons:

  1. It’s fun!  My kids always look forward to this race.  TBR Jr. loves running with his cousins here, while Li’l Miss TBR loves the fact that they allow her to bring her pink princess bike.  It’s just a 3k race within BHS so parents like us need not worry too much about their safety.  If I need a “real” run, I run BEFORE the actual race to get the mileage in.
  2. The fun run is an advocacy run for breastfeeding.  The race is held every August which is World Breastfeeding Month. I breastfed both my kids: TBR Jr until he was 6 months and Li’l Miss TBR well over 1.5 years and I always encourage every mother to do so.  It was, for me, one of the most memorable bonding experiences with my kids.
  3. The race is organized by my sister, Janice Villanueva of Mommy Mundo, a go-to portal of everything for moms and preggies, and Mommy Matters, a line of nursing wear clothes.  My Ate will kill me if I don’t show up for her run, but of course she knows I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

Mommy Milkshake Marathon is now on its 5th year!  The next run will be held on August 14, 2011 at Mercato Centrale, Bonifacio Global City. It’ll have a 3k and 5k run or walk.  Hope you can join us then!

Avon Run to 125,000 Kisses

Monday, 18 July 2011  |  Race Announcements

I’m helping Avon gather runners together to race against breast cancer. The annual Avon fun run is always a friendly and fun race that I participate in. This year’s race will be on October 2, 2011 at SM Mall of Asia, but Avon is starting early and just opened registration for 5k and 10k events. Hope to see you there!


Here’s Avon’s Press Release for its race:

Join Avon’s Race to 125,000 Kisses for Breast Cancer
Early registration for the Manila Run Event begins on July 16

With thousands of women succumbing to breast cancer every year, it is no surprise that the condition remains to be the top killer of Filipino women. Anyone can easily fall prey to this deadly disease—making it every individual’s responsibility to support the fight against breast cancer.

Avon, the foremost corporate advocate of this disease, continues to invite everyone to be a positive part of the fight to save women’s lives with its annual Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer (KGBC) fundraising event. Since its Philippine launch in 2002, it has been Avon KGBC’s mission to help provide access to care and support to medically under-served women.

In celebration of its 125th anniversary, the company for women brings more excitement to its annual walk and run events with its campaign Race to 125,000 Kisses. For 2011, Avon is inviting everyone to work together to build the giant pink ribbon through their “Kisses of Support”.

Participation in the annual event translates into a Kiss donation for all breast cancer victims. Your Kiss via a Kiss Card, which will be included in the race kit for the run participants, will be numbered and counted to fulfill the 125,000 target.

The Race to 125,000 Kisses Run, consisting of the 5K and 10K events, encourages the growing community of runners in the Philippines to actively show their commitment for the cause. For a registration fee of P500.00 and P650.00 respectively, individuals will receive the Avon KGBC Race Kit, which already includes a singlet, race number and giveaway. Proceeds from the event, which will be held at the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds, will go to PGH Breast Care Center and selected provincial hospitals.

Registration begins July 16, 2011 (except R.O.X) via Avon KGBC’s official website www.avonkgbcphilippines.com.

Individuals may also sign up for the run event at participating Avon locations: Taft (contact 516-8005), Shaw (contact 571-8930), and Avon Makati Head Office (contact 864-2954). Participants can also sign up at the following establishments: Reebok Megamall (U/G Floor, 914-0344), The Shoe Shop Rockwell (2nd Level, Power Plant Mall, 898-1297), and R.O.X. Bonifacio High Street (856-4639) starting September 4-26, 2011 only.

Get on your mark, and get ready to Race to 125,000 Kisses. Through your participation, you can make a significant contribution to the fight against breast cancer.
