Monday, 11 May 2015  |  Race Announcements


Over 8,000 women rocked it last May 9, 2015 for the inaugural Nike Women’s 10k Manila run at Filinvest City. Aside from the unique feature of being an exclusive women’s only event, it was also a night race with gun start at 9:00 PM.  (Way past the bedtime of this morning person, but, hey, I couldn’t miss this event!)

Nike We Run MLA: Win a 10k Race Kit and Run in my Shoes

Wednesday, 14 November 2012  |  News + Promos

I would’ve given anything to run Nike We Run MNL on December 2, 2012, but Unilab Active Health will be flying me to Angkor Wat Half Marathon on the same day.

Here’s the thing: I’ve got a Nike We Run MLA 10k race kit waiting for me AND I wanted to post a little race report, too. So, I came up with the idea to throw a little contest for anyone who would be interested in “running in my shoes” (figuratively speaking so please don’t expect me to hand you some shoes!) and taking my place in the race and reporting about it after here on TBR.  (Hey, if you do a great job at this, I’m thinking you could be my official “Run-porter” for future races.)

If you’re game, here’s how to join my TBR We Run MLA Run in my Shoes contest:


  • 1 free race kit for We Run MLA 10k
  • Feature on www.thebullrunner.com for We Run Manila 10k Race Report.


  • In 2 to 3 sentences, tell me why I should choose you to “Run in my Shoes” for Nike We Run MLA 10k.
  • Post the answer in the comments section below.
  • Only 1 entry per person.
  • Only applicable to runners within Metro Manila.
  • Winning entry will be chosen by TBR. Criteria for winning entry: content, originality, wit, writing style
  • Contest ends Thursday, November 15, 2012, 9:00AM
  • Winner will be given 1 complimentary race kit to We Run Manila 10k. Winner agrees to personally run the race, take photos, and write a race report for feature on www.thebullrunner.com. Article must be submitted by Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012. Minimum of 300 words.

Good luck and may the best writer/runner win!

Nike We Run Manila 10k – 15 October 2011

Thursday, 8 September 2011  |  Race Announcements

Last week, I attended the presscon for Nike’s We Run Manila 10k. We Run Manila 10k is part of the Nike We Run City 10k races.


– with Coach Rio –

– with Tricia Chiongbian (will you be my Nike Run Buddy?!), Gary Mercado, and Marco –

– Peejo Pilar of Mens Health flirting with the mannequin.  Kidding. He was actually shopping for shorts for his wife! –

To be honest with you, I thought that Nike Human Race in the past was a brilliant idea and that Nike should’ve continued it.  (How can you forget those awesome red Nike Human Race shirts? Drool drool)  But, I heard that organizing the Nike Human Race simultaneously in various key cities around the world was simply a logistical nightmare.  I guess We Run Manila is the simpler solution and hopefully an event that’s just as successful. (Read about 2008 Nike Human Race HERE)

For We Run Manila, Nike expects 8,000 local runners to be part of the 150,000 runners from 15 cities all across the globe such as Seoul (South Korea), Monterrey (Mexico) and Santiago (Chile) participating in the Nike City 10k races from now until the end of the year.

We Run Manila 10k will be a night run on October 15, 2011 at Fort Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. At the end of the race the runners will be treated with performances by Chicosci, Parokya ni Edgar.

Registration is ongoing at Nike Park Fort, RunnR Bonifacio High Street and Shangri-la Plaza, online through www.facebook.com/NikeRunningPH and in select universities. Registration fees and categories are:

  • Under 25 yrs old – PhP 750.00 (solo), PhP 1,300.00 (for 2)
  • 25 yrs old & above – PhP 1,000.00 (solo), PhP 1,300.00 (for 2)

A special discount for registered runners will also be available at select Nike stores.

I would’ve wanted to participate, but I’ll most likely be abroad running the Guam Half Marathon.  Hope you guys can all join We Run Manila!
