Press Release: Asics Davao Run set on February 20
January 26, 2011, Davao City – With the success of its first running event, RunClub Davao is keeping the momentum with a new adventure, the “Asics Davao Run” happening on February 20, 2011 at 5AM with the starting line at Plaza del Carmen, A. Loyola St. Bo. Obrero, Davao City.
RunClub, the first and only Running Specialty Store in Davao City, in partnership with Asics, the world renowned Japanese maker of top performance running footwear, is gearing up for a longer route with 3 distinct categories: 4K, 7K and 15K. This event is open for all male and female runners who are up to improving their performance and trying out longer distances.
”Those who usually run 10K races can now start training for 15K. Or runners who run 5K can try 7K. It’s a way to encourage runners to aim for something higher and set out for bigger challenges,” according to Monchit Mackay, General Manager of RunClub Davao. “Though the first run organized by RunClub last November was an astounding success, we will make this run bigger, more challenging and more rewarding,” added Mackay.
With the technical expertise of Mr. Kenneth Sai of Vantage Sports Promotions, the Asics Davao Run will have its Start/Finish line at Plaza del Carmen. A road race with an uphill challenge will confront runners as they pass along J.P. Laurel Avenue going up the Buhangin fly-over. The 4K runners will turn left to Dacudao Avenue and head back to Loyola Street. The 7K runners will go through Buhangin road and have its turning point at the Buhangin-Diversion Road Interchange area and head back to Dacudao Avenue and Loyola Street. The 15K runners will run along Diversion Road to its turning point at the Crocodile Park and back to Buhangin-Dacudao Avenue-Loyola Street.
The registration fee is pegged at Php350.00 inclusive of an Asics performance singlet, race bib, light breakfast and a specially made finisher’s certificate. All registered participants can also take advantage of a one-time 15% discount on all regular-priced Asics products at RunClub Davao from the time they register until March 15, 2011.
