Article Source from Kenny Roger's website.
Today, the trend of marathon running has gripped Filipinos like a red-hot fever that’s here to stay! With an estimated average of 2 marathons per weekend in Luzon alone, people are running for all sorts of reasons: for friendship, the thrill of a good challenge, and others for charity!
But with several marathons being conducted week after week, most of these runs have begun to blend into one another. Even with the constant challenge to break one’s personal best, every run becomes a virtual repetition of the run before. Two questions now come to mind: first, will there ever be a run that truly stands out? And secondly, “What’s in it for the runners this time?”
This is where Kenny Rogers Roasters steps in. For years, Kenny Rogers Roasters has promoted deliciously healthy eating, supporting a fit and active lifestyle. With sumptuous choices and savory entrées, Kenny Rogers Roasters has long bannered meals that are healthy, yet incredibly delicious and mouth-watering; a testament to their dedication to providing a variety of food choices for people who proactively choose healthy living.
Now, Kenny Rogers is taking another leap forward in its dedication to health - one that is bound shake up a storm! It is with great pride that we present: The Kenny’s Open ‘09 Urbanite Run! On August 15th at 7:00 p.m., at Bonifacio Global City in the Fort, a truly one-of-a-kind run will take place. And as the name suggests, The Kenny’s Open ’09 Urbanite Run will happen at night!
Think about it! Marathons and fun runs have been popping up all over the city every weekend- for years! Yet at the end of the day, none have truly broken away from the ordinary routine. Sure, everyone has fun; we tie on our running shoes and race to beat our personal best time. Yet, have you ever wondered if there could be more to the convention?
Kenny Rogers Roasters certainly thought so! In the spirit of offering only the very best variety and the freshest choices, Kenny Rogers Roasters is stepping up and setting out, because on the night of August 15, history will be made.
This is your chance to be a part of it. You’re invited to be a part of the first, ever Kenny’s Open ’09 Urbanite Run!
Joining is easy. Simply stop over at any Kenny Rogers Roasters branch or the new Kenny’s Roast and Grill restaurant at the Powerplant Mall, purchase a P600 Urbanite Run Ticket to Eat, Run and Donate your way to fitness! Secondly, participants, all 18 years old and above, must register their information.
Can you imagine it? Glow in the dark wristbands, sleek jerseys, and Kenny’s key colors of red and black whipping around like a bonfire! With an advanced timing chip system to record runners’ progress and distances of 5/10/15 kilometers, the Urbanite Run is designed especially for the young and young at heart of the Metro.
And it doesn’t stop there! After crossing the finish line, runners will cap off the evening with entertainment and deliciously healthy eating! With the bang and percussion stylings of Tribo Manila thumping while you eat your favorite Kenny Rogers Roasters meals, you can chat around with friends and actually put up your feet for a real night to remember! And what’s more, there’s a lot in-store for runners who speed by the quickest: exciting cash prizes and cool consolation prizes will be given away.
But throwing a rocking party and carving a place in history isn’t the end of it! The Kenny’s Open ‘09 Urbanite Run is also for the benefit of Hands-On Manila Foundation and the 57:75 Movement. As Kenny Rogers Roasters is dedicated to healthy and delicious choices, both foundations have similarly made it their mission to feed the minds and spirits of the youth.
Proceeds from the Kenny’s Open ’09 Urbanite Run will be donated to both foundations as a fund “racing” to champion the nutrition, sports and recreation of the Hands on Manila and the 57:75 Movement kids.
Watch out for this truly one of a kind marathon, ladies and gents! Look out for flyers and posters to find out more, because The Kenny’s Open ‘09 Urbanite Run is speeding ahead and leaving other runs in the dust!
