Robinson's Fit & Fun attract thousands of Running "Buddies"

It was one of those great reasons to wake up at 3am in the morning.

Turns out all the motivation I needed to finally join another running event was a commitment I made to Ruth Floresca, a fellow blogger.

So despite having no practice run, or regular exercise leading to the run,  this I had to show up to keep my promise, and see if I still had the stamina.

As the name suggests the 8th Robinsons Supermarket Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run, required you to have a buddy, which I think is a very good idea to have you commit and keep you motivated throughout the race.

Together with thousands of other runners, which included several CEOs and celebrities, we ran in pairs around the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

The overwhelming turnout is a testament to the consistently increasing number of health-conscious individuals actively seeking healthier lifestyles.

The annual Fit & Fun Buddy Run is in keeping with Robinsons Supermarket’s commitment to health & wellness. It aims to empower those who are leading healthy and active lives, and encourage the rest to start healthier days by going on a wellness journey with Robinsons Supermarket.

Around 4,500 recreational runners took on the 5KM and 10KM run, including triathlete Nikko Huelgas, who recently bagged a gold medal for the sport at the 28th SEA Games. Philippines Volcanoes captain Jake Letts, and celebrities James Reid and Jessy Mendiola were in attendance as well.

“While eating healthy is at the core of a healthy life, we cannot discount the immutable contribution of exercise. And running is always better when done with a partner hence, the Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy run,” said Robinsons Supermarket General Manager Jody Gadia.

At the end of the run, top pair finishers received prizes from Robinsons Supermarket officials. 5K winners won a trip for 2 to Coron, Palawan while 10k winners bagged a trip for 2 to Yangon, Myanmar. 2nd to 5th place finishers received Robinsons Gift Certificates as consolation prizes.

Special awards from event sponsors were also given away. Outstanding pairs were awarded the following: Close-up Couple award, Rexona Do More Buddies, Breeze Sige Mom-child Tandem, Nestle Best Shape-up Buddies, Milo Energy & Milo R2 Twin Buddies, and the Johnson & Johnson Active Fresh Award.
