For the past few years, running as a sport has increasingly become popular among Filipinos, leading to the prevalence of road races around Metro Manila. The aforementioned races have become a congregation of people from all walks of life united in their love for running and their resolution to lead a healthy and fit lifestyle. From elite athletes to weekend warriors, from multisport enthusiasts to the weight-watcher, running has become an integral part in the public's efforts to keep fit.
With running at its peak, the idea for producing a viable medium to promote and sustain the sport's presence in the public eye came, hence the idea to produce Run Radio.
The show will be hosted by Jaymie Pizarro, thebullrunner, a known catalyst for influencing people to take up running as a lifestyle choice, and Jay Nacino, prometheuscometh, a former Ateneo track team member who has rekindled his love for running. Both hosts are known figures in the running circuit through their blogs where they give detailed accounts of their training, their races, and running in general.
Run Radio will start airing on July 24, 2009 at NU107, and will continue to air every Fridays, 9-10pm.
