Photo Credit: Runrio.com

Rexona Run is a memorable event for me during my first year in running. Being my second half marathon, and three months into running, I achieved my first Sub2 21k run. Big Thanks to my pacer – TA1.Martian (aka Marvin Jusay) of Team Alpha1.

So, are you ready to take on the Rexona  Run 2012 Challenge? This year’s Rexona Run is all about PERFORMANCE. The event challenges all runners to push themselves to the limits and beat their personal best.

The Catch: Finishers who manage to beat the recommended finishing time for the particular race category that they participated in will be given a commemorative Rexona Run 2012 key chain.  To qualify, 5K runners must cross the finish line 30 minutes after gun start at 6:20am, and all 21K participants need to finish within 2 hours at 7:00am.

Key Features: To ensure that runners will be able to achieve the challenge with flying colors, the following are being made available by Rexona and RunRio, Inc.:

§ the Rexona Run Outrun Yourself App – download this app for free via the Rexona Men Facebook page.  The app will help runners set a target time for the category to be run courtesy of a running playlist and occasional voice over as their time check, which they can listen to while training.  During the actual run, the app can also be used to help runners set their pace.

§ the Rexona Run 2012 Volunteer Pacers – runner-pacers will be deployed for each race category  so that they can help ensure that each participant keeps within their target finishing time.
