CITIVS, ALTIVS, FORTIVS! The Runrio Trilogy: Run United 1 Race Details

Last night, I was fortunate enough to be invited to the launch of one of the most anticipated running event in the country, the Run United 1/Runrio Trilogy, Leg1. The event was held at the 100 Miles Cafe located at the Fort Strip in BGC.

Unilab Active Health’s Lester Castillo was present to explain how they conceptualized this year’s Runrio Trilogy, in line with how the Olympics inspire athletes, thus “borrowing” their motto…CITIVS, ALTIVS, FORTIVS (Faster, Higher, Stronger)! It is where they encourage the runners to be a better version of themselves with each leg, beating PR’s, leveling up the distance, and to always give it their best each time they cross the finish line.

Coach Rio Dela Cruz also took the floor to explain the technical side, from the new registration system, to smooth race kit claiming to be implemented for the said race/s. More importantly, with all the innovations made to make the event more memorable for everyone, there will be NO INCREASE in race registration fees. Aren’t you guys excited? Here are the details…
