The 11th Fit&Fun Wellness Buddy Run was something the hubby and I were looking forward to. Last year’s was our first run together, and we hope to make it some sort of a tradition. The run kicked off at the parade grounds of Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City with different types of running pairs—parents and kids, siblings, lolos and their apos, loved ones, officemates, best friends, even neighbors—competing in the 5K and 10K races.
Although it poured during race day, I loved that the crowd did not fuss over the announcement of Robinsons Supermarket that the 5k and 10k run was combined, and timing mechanics was cancelled to avoid injuries. It was fun nonetheless, with people given the prerogative to run their distance or just to grab a hold of their lootbags. It was a win-win for everyone, to say the least.
“We are happy to provide an opportunity for people to start their wellness journey in a fun and one-of-a-kind event with their partners. After all, getting fit and choosing the healthier lifestyle is more worthwhile when shared with a buddy,” said Jody Gadia, Robinsons Supermarket general manager.
Thank you, Running Photographers, for this shot. Hopefully, I’ll get to join my champ in a half-marathon race. Meanwhile, will be giving my total support as Jeff prepares for New York Marathon. 😉
After crossing the finish line with their buddies and celebrating fitness in a fun and exciting way, most of the participants also enjoyed exciting activity booths and took home big grocery loot bags that have been the trademark of the Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run through the years.
The loot bags contained lots of freebies from Nestle, Johnson & Johnson, Wyeth Nutrition, Abbott Nutrition, Fonterra and Unilab.
The fun run is in line with Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness commitment to continuously encourage more people to choose and live healthier lifestyles.
