|Unilab's Active Health Series|
This October and November, brace and mark your calendar with these active United events from Unilab. The Bike United, Tri United, and the final installment of the RunRio Trilogy - Run United. Read on below about these series of active health and active tests of your limit.
The Bike United was held yesterday, October 16 at the Venice Piazza, McKinley Hills, Taguig. The Bike United aims to gather weekend warriors and competitive bikers for a day of active health and wellness. It has three (3) main events:
- 20 km Sunset Fun Ride - a first in Manila, starting from McKinley Hill and will pass through the exclusive Philippine Army Camp (keep posted at the Unilab's website for new schedule).
- Alaxan FR 4.2 km Road Criterium - a 30-minute road race (4.2 km per loop)
- I-On Dual Stunt - two (2) riders will race on identical tracks and will follow a knock-out system until the final rider wins.
Tri-United Whiterock, happening on November 13, 2010 at the Whiterock Beach, Subic, is the ultimate test of endurance in the triathlon arena for both the adults and kids, composing of 2 km swim, 91 km road bike, and 20 km run, available for Individual or Relay team competitors.
Plus event also for the Kids of 6 to 12 years old, they may also participate by joining the Tri Kids Swim and Run Clinic. The clinic is designed to help the children understand how to properly race in a triathlon event. A race simulation will follow after the clinic where kids can put into use what they learned from the clinic.
For the Leg 3 of the RunRio Trilogy - Run United 2, this event will take two days weekend on November 20-21, 2010 at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, and will be for the benefit of Gawad Kalusugan and Hero Foundation.
What's unique on this event is the Runrio Afroman distance of 20-mile or 32 km distance. Why 32 kilometer? As most of the runners who have already ran a Marathon, the 32nd to 35th kilometer is where most runners hits their "wall", or the dramatic fatigue of the body where glycogen stores are almost up to its limit. So this is a good endurance test training for those aiming to debut, or comeback on a Marathon distance.
Race Schedule and other distance:
November 20: 500m (for kids), 3K, 10K, 21K
November 21: 500m (for kids), 5K, 15K, 32K (Runrio Afroman Distance)
The fun and active event doesn't stop here though, as the active family bonding would continue at the Unilab Active Health Village on each race dates where Kids, Adults, and Seniors will get to take part of the play zones, diagnostic tests, medical consultations, and running tips from fitness Coaches.
