Here’s the Super Hero Run from TV 5

Superheroes make us all want to fly through the highest part of the sky, run as fast as the wind, protect the universe from bad people and most importantly save and defend other people’s lives. The wish to become extraordinary humans become more exhilarating when we get to read it on magazines and comic books or watch it in films and TV series.

What if you can be a superhero for a day? No superhero training or superhero relative required. All you need to bring is one specific superpower: the heart of a superhero fan who wants to help out other people and a penchant for participating in fun runs

On February 25, heroes will assemble in TV5’s Superheroes Run: Manila at the SM MOA Grounds, Block 16. In the spirit of doing good like our favorite superheroes, a portion of the proceeds from the fun run will be donated to the Alagang Kapatid Foundation (AKFI).

Gatorade Run on November 27, 2016

 The world’s number one sports drink, in partnership with Runrio, will once again hit the road for the second year of the Gatorade Run.

It will be held on November 27, 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The run will have two distances—11K and 22K.

More than 6,000 runners registered in last year’s run which featured hydration stations where participants got pre-race hydration drinks, a post-run hydration test area where runners instantly learned about their hydration status, and a warm-up area where free sessions were available for those who wanted a full-on warm up activity before and after the run. Gatorade ambassadors Jeron Teng, Jaja Santiago, Chris Banchero, Jett Manuel and Ara Galang were among those who were present to support the runners.

This year’s run promises to be more exciting, while still focusing on the importance of pre- and post-run hydration. Pepsico Marketing Manager for Hydration Tony Atayde said, “Gatorade is a global leader in sports performance and we’ll definitely bring that expertise to the run. Learning the benefits of proper hydration is crucial for runners and we look forward to reinforcing that message through the Gatorade Run.  We’re excited to show runners how, whether in sports hydration or a unique consumer experience, NOTHING BEATS GATORADE.”

Registration for the Gatorade Run 2016 will start on September 12. Log on to runrio.com for updates and to register.
