Ever responsive to the runners’ feedback, Unilab Active Health and RunRio are now focusing on longer distances to be in step with the requirements of progressive runners who want to better their personal records and outdo themselves in every race.
If last year, the Trilogy was concluded by a 4th leg - the RUPM, with a big, plate-like medal, this year's medal will be much better. A Batman-shaped medal will be on your neck for the 3rd leg, and if you completed all the other 2 legs, the 3-medals combined will unfold a heavier, thicker, better-looking, Superman logo-shaped United medal.
“We noticed a trend during the previous years’ races that the slots for longer distances get filled up faster. There were instances when we had to open up more slots. So, by focusing on longer distances, we will be able to accommodate more runners,” said Alex Panlilio, Head of Unilab Active Health.
Coach Rio dela Cruz added: “This is in line with our plan to be part of the growth and journey of Filipino runners. It just goes to prove that the local running community is more mature, that is why we also launched the Run United Philippine Marathon (RUPM) last year. Filipino runners have leveled up.”
