Century Tuna Super Bods Run – 1st leg, RunRio Trilogy

RunRio is at it early this year and what a way to start!    I’m excited about this and who wouldn’t be?  Run with  Century Tuna’s Superbods frontrunners Derek Ramsey and Coach Rio for the first leg of the RunRio Trilogy and be in for another exciting run!

A little birdie told us Century Tuna wants this event to be HUGE.  Hmm… can’t wait to find out what’s in store for us, runners.  Definitely not missing this one… Wait no more.  Sign up now!

Just a friendly reminder to RunRio & Century Tuna:   For the sake of truth in advertising, make sure Derek  runs in the same outfit (or lack of it! :)) in the ad below, okay?  MWAHAHAHA

For details of the run, we are printing here RunRio’s official press release.  It sure is going to make you more excited. Awards night, Afroman Run?  Read on…

The running event of the year has finally arrived!  Unlike any race you’ve seen before, The RunRio Trilogy is a triple combination of 3 major running events spread throughout the year, with no less than Century Tuna, the country’s leading brand of canned tuna kicking off the run series on February 21, 2010 with Century Superbods Run 2010!

You have every reason to join all three legs because special awards await our loyal participants, with the first-ever RunRio Awards Night capping off your year-long hard work and running achievements.  To showcase another first, The RunRio Trilogy will be introducing the 32km Afroman distance on its third and final leg.  For those who have intentions of finishing a full marathon distance, the Afroman is a perfect training race leading up to your target event.

The RunRio Trilogy also aims to encourage first-time runners to try the sport and enjoy running with friends and family.  Beginners may want to test the waters and try the shorter 3km and 5km events and eventually graduate to a 10K or 21K by the end of the series, taking their running fitness to the next level.

Participants can expect a lot of surprising innovations during the entire series.  With Finishline pioneering the use of ChampionChips, a high-tech timing system for fast and accurate race results; detailed RunPix performance analysis complete with graphic illustrations and comparative results; and professional action shots by PhotoVendo to capture those precious winning moments, there’s no telling what Coach Rio and his team has in store for us during this three-part series.

In our efforts to give social relevance to the event, Century Tuna and Coach Rio have chosen to support UNICEF and WWF throughout The RunRio Trilogy in the hopes of making it not just a fun event but also a worthwhile venue to encourage the running community to reach out to the marginalized sector of society, as well as to do our share in preserving the environment and our wildlife.

So get the most out of your Sunday morning.  Join us in this historic event and be a part of the race of the Century!

    May i know if i can still join this event, for i didnt know that the last day of registration was feb 15th?

    I’m really eager to participate. Is it still possible to sign in on the day of the event?

      Oh my nenette, so sorry we just read your query here. As far as we know, on-site registration was not allowed. Because of the sheer number of registrants and those who still wanted to join, it would have been chaos if the organizers allowed that. Anyway, I do hope you get to register earlier in the next runs. With the running boom here, big races’ slots are easily filled-up. We hope you don’t get discouraged and continue running and joining races. Happy running!

    thanks! anyway.

    It’s already a pleasure getting a response from you.

    Yup! I hope I could get early registration to join any events for the future.

    My best regards!

    Hi nenette! There’s another up-coming big race (Globe Run-for-Home) to be held on March 21. This is another must-join running event. We’ll be coming out with details in this blog soon. I hope you get to register early for this one. 🙂
