Running in pairs is much more fun than running alone. When you run with someone, this person will always push you and motivate you to finish or reach your goal. Plus you will never get bored since you have someone to talk to while you are running. It’s a good bonding activity especially if you are both into wellness and healthy lifestyle.
Speaking of wellness, in line with Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness campaign to continuously encourage more people to choose and live healthier lifestyles. And now on its 10th year, the Robinsons Supermarket’s Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run 2017 was held at the Parade Grounds of Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City and participated by hundreds of running pairs.
“Through the years, the Fit & Fun Buddy Run has been a much-anticipated event for a lot of people. it’s our kick-off as we celebrate with the nation, Wellness and Nutrition month. It provides a fun gateway activity for fitness newbies who are just about to start their wellness journey and loyal runners,” said general manager of Robinsons Supermarket, Mr. Jody Gadia.
My forever running buddy… Rey Belen of Lifestylebucket.com. 🙂 Unfortunately, we were late and weren’t able to catch up with the 5k gunstart and did something else…
So instead of us being running buddies, we just turned into food trip buddies and enjoyed lots of free taste, samplers, freebies and activities from the booths of the brand sponsors such as Nestle Philippines, Johnson & Johnson, Fonterra, Unilab and Wyeth Nutrition, Unilever, International Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (IPI), Procter & Gamble, Abbott Nutrition, Getz Bros, Ecossential, Del Monte, Foodsphere Inc., and Philusa. I think a lot of the participants did just the same hahaha! It was fun!
After the run, each participant were given a bag full of goodies. I think it’s equivalent to a finisher’s medal. Actually whether you run or not, as long as you are registered, you can get a goodie bag 🙂
It was then followed by a short program hosted by volleyball superstar, Gretchen Ho, together with TV personality,Robbie Domingo.
Coaches Jim and Toni Saret were also present. The power couple also prepped-up the runners with a short work-out and invited them to register on-site for the Fit Filipino 1 Million Pounds National Weight Loss Challenge, the biggest on-ground and online wellness program in the country which aims to encourage everyone to pledge and lose weight.
The 10th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run 2017 is just one of the programs of Robinsons Supermarket this July as part of Wellness Festival campaign and its commitment to provide Filipinos with delicious and healthy food options and alternatives. With that Robinsons is also giving away Healthy You snack platters for a minimum purchase of Php3,000 inclusive of Php 500 worth of participating items.
