Running Booms in Davao

Thursday, 24 June 2010  |  News + Promos

It’s great to know that running is booming not just in Manila, but also in the provinces.

I was a witness to the active running community in Cebu and I was fortunate enough to participate in my all-time favorite race, Cebu Marathon 2010, and the Great Lapu Lapu Run.  In Cebu, I met a group of runners from Bacolod.  I was also told that running is growing in Iloilo.

In Davao, a new running specialty store, RunClub, will open tomorrow to cater to the growing community of Dabawenyo runners. Former PSC Chair (presently, PTF Chair) William “Butch” Ramirez, and Nike Philippine’s Country Commercial Director Ms. Loulette Quinio will be there to inaugurate the new store.

RunClub will have Nike, Adidas, Mizuno, Asics and New Balance footwear and apparel.  For accessories, Nike watch and eyewear, Rudy project, Fuel belts and Optic Nerve will be available.  While for nutrition products, they’ll have Gu and Power Foods.

Address: Plaza del Carmen, Loyola St., Bo. Obrero, Davao City
Store hours: 10:30 – 7pm, Monday- Saturday
Contact number: (082) 222-8786
E-mail: RunClubdvo@gmail.com

It would be great to visit Davao in August when they celebrate Kadayawan Festival.  Every single weekend of August will have a running event! (thanks to Ester for sending):

Tomorrow, I’ll talk about running in Cagayan de Oro!  Stay tuned…
