During last year's Rexona Run To Your Beat event, the runners were treated to a different kind of experience. Music reverberates in almost every corner; DJs played their rendition from their booths lined-up along the route. One of the best highlight was the tunnel, with lights glittering all over, where the runners ran through. During this year's event there will be three for the 21km distance category. It was a totally thrilling experience for me as I ran the entire course of 21km sans my earphone. I intentionally left my music player for me to enjoy the music from the DJs situated along the course. The race was a treat since I came from a 50km trail race a day before the event. I made it as my recovery run. I just did an easy run while listening to every different beat from hip hop to techno to dance.
For those who missed last year's event, here's your chance to redeem yourself.
On October 26, immerse yourself in a trail of pulsating beats and scintillating visuals that will push you to go further into running euphoria at one of the most sought-after runs in the calendar, the Rexona Run To Your Beat 2014.
Taking Rexona’s Do More philosophy to the next level, Rexona Run To Your Beat 2014 will once again challenge you to stretch your limits at a music powered run that pushes you further while you stay fresh. Mar Corazo, Rexona Brand Manager, says, “We are always finding ways to make the Rexona Run more exciting than the last. This year, we wanted to take the Do More philosophy into higher gear with stimulating visuals to match music from different genres, as interpreted by some of Manila’s top DJs.”
This year, Rexona has chosen to collaborate with the Republiq group and the top DJs in the Philippines to fuel your run with live music. Pushing runners to the finish line will be DJs Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Deuce Manila, Martin Pulgar, Euric, Motherbasss, and MC Pao.
To make things even more exciting, Rexona introduces three new tunnels with varying themes that will make the music come to life. At key points during the race, runners will be able to experience the Retro, HipHop and EDM themed tunnels that will have different features, from roller bladders to disco balls, street art to laser light. But of course, only those who can do more can enjoy all three tunnels. 5K and 10k runners will go through two tunnels, while 21k runners will be able to experience all three!
Gun start for 5k is 3:45 AM, 10k 3:30 AM and 21k 3:00 AM. Interested runners can register online at www.runrio.com/rexonarun starting September 8, today, until October 12, 2014. In-store registration will also be available in Toby’s MOA, RUNNR Store or Move in Bonifacio High Street, Toby’s SM North EDSA, The Block and Toby’s Robinsons Galleria starting Friday, September 12 until October 19.
To prepare individuals for this much-awaited run, Rexona will be holding running clinics from September 18 – October 23. Led by Coach Rio, in collaboration with 360 Club Fitness, the clinics will be twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6-9PM at the Fort. The clinic is open to all interested individuals, but priority will be given to those who have registered for the Rexona Run 2014. Sign up for the Rexona Run running clinics now at the Training Camp tab on the Rexona Facebook page.
