Running for Wellness: Robinsons Supermarket Buddy Run 10

Today marks the 10th year anniversary of Robinsons Supermarket Fit and Fun Buddy Run. This milestone was celebrated at the Camp Aguinaldo Open Grounds with more than 4,000 participants from newbie runners, running enthusiasts and the hardcore runners.

My first running event happened four years ago when I was invited to cover Robinsons Supermarket Fit & Fun Buddy Run. I was then 3 months post operative abdominal surgery so I went to cover the event while hubby joined the run. The following year, I joined the run and since then I told myself I would commit to live a healthy lifestyle. I started eating healthy and organic food as well. Today marks my 4th year of running for wellness.

This year is also extra special because my brother, Marlon and cousin Mark joined us. While my sister Tina and husband Eugene run as a couple.

Just like in previous buddy run, the 10K lead the race followed by the 5k. It was hosted by volleyball superstar and TV personality, Gretchen Ho, and celebrity host Robi Domingo. Participants enjoyed samples from various from Nestle Philippines, Johnson & Johnson, Fonterra, Unilab and Wyeth Nutrition, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Abbott Nutrition, Getz Bros, Ecossential, Del Monte, Foodsphere Inc., Philusa, and Organique ACAI – our healthy food supplement of choice.

Coaches Jim and Toni Saret prepped-up the runners with a short work-out and invited them to register on-site for the Fit Filipino 1 Million Pounds National Weight Loss Challenge, the biggest on-ground and online wellness program in the country which aims to encourage everyone to pledge and lose weight.

The Fun Run is just one of the programs this July. Robinsons Supermarket is also giving away Healthy You snack platters for a minimum purchase of Php 3,000 inclusive of Php 500 worth of participating items of the Wellness Festival.   

Robinsons Supermarket's commitment to wellness campaign extends to providing Filipinos with delicious and healthy food options and alternatives. It's hard to get fit and fab but the journey to wellness would be easier if there's someone who will keep on encouraging you.
