World Vision Virtual Run For Children 2020

Due to covid-19 pandemic, a lot of races have been cancelled. But it doesn’t mean that as runners, we should stop training. It also doesn’t mean that we should stop racing. Thanks to various organisers who came up with the idea of virtual races.

World Vision Run was one of those races that’s closest to my heart. Not only that it is platform for runners to put their trainings to test but also the race’s proceeds help send children to school.

Haven’t you tried joining a virtual race? Here’s your chance to do so! I am inviting you to join the World Vision Virtual Run for Children 2020, which starts on June 15 until July 31, 2020. Check out the race details below.

New Facility Brings OCR Training Closer To The South

Santé Fitness Lab, a premier one-stop fitness center that offers holistic training programs, as well as innovative recovery and sports rehabilitation, is set to open facilities dedicated for the training needs of Obstacle Course Race (OCR) athletes in Vermosa in Imus, Cavite this year.

Aiming to put a spotlight on the kick-ass world of OCR, a sport in which a competitor, traveling on foot, overcomes various physical challenges in the form of obstacles, the facility will include strength and conditioning, as well as skill and technique development programs to prepare participants to conquer basic obstacle courses.

“OCR entails a lot of hanging, running, and lifting. It might seem intimidating at first but, with the right training programs, coupled with a winning mindset, I am confident that anyone can finish any obstacle course,” said Clarize Lucindo, Santé Fitness Lab General Manager.

As part of the Santé Fitness Lab, the up and coming OCR facility will rise south of Manila to allow sports and fitness enthusiasts to enjoy and experience the thrill of this emerging worldwide sport.

This initiative is also in line with Santé Fitness Lab’s effort to encourage Filipinos to embrace a healthy and fit lifestyle by engaging in sports while experiencing how it is to train like professional athletes.

Santé Chief Executive Officer Joey Marcelo could not agree more. He said that “the purpose of organizing the obstacle course race is so that we can invite people, regardless of their fitness level and sports background, to enjoy going into sports, as well as live a healthy and active lifestyle.”

“Since Santé is all about promoting health and wellness, we want everyone to be fit so that they can have the energy, stamina, and discipline to continue improving their lives and the lives of their loved ones,” Marcelo added.

To date, Santé Fitness Lab serves as a premier fitness hub, located at the heart of Vermosa in Imus Cavite that offers sports development programs, such as swimming, triathlon, and mixed martial arts (MMA) classes.

The hub also features a Recovery and Sports Rehab center that caters to sports injuries; and Performance Testing services, which are geared toward measuring and analyzing specific performance factors to accurately determine the right training programs for the individual.

Santé Fitness Lab stays true to its tagline, “New Home of Champions” as it has served as the Official Recovery Services Provider for the Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association (PATAFA) and the Triathlon Association of the Philippines (TRAP)

UP Diliman Academic Oval is a home to many runners. It was the rendezvous and the training ground for newbies, the not so newbies and the elites. Running clinics are held here and so were some running events. And it’s where I ran my first 15km race.

As University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season is just around the corner, NoWhereToGoButUP Foundation is inviting all runners and running enthusiasts to its inaugural racing event The Great UP Run, which will be held on August 11, 2019, at UP Diliman campus.
