An estimated 10,000 (or more) people participated in today’s Rexona Run 2014. The last time I joined was in 2011 and this activity has definitely improved by leaps and bounds. The bigger turnout means I could not even find parking in the open grounds. Going around Mall of Asia made me late for the unholy 3:45 a.m. gun start. Best to take a taxi or call an Uber service next time 🙂
Rexona Run 2014 was simply awesome and extraordinary because of the presence of the music-themed tunnels, namely Retro, Hip Hop and EDM. It was like being transported into another world as people went through the tunnels, and stopping for a photo-op was in order. The coolly-decorated areas, with sounds blaring from popular artists, were simply a feast for the the eyes and the senses!
I didn’t stay long enough to witness this guy propose to his girlfriend in the post-run program. But it certainly made news. “Will you run with me for the rest of my life? And I promise, like Rexona, I won’t let you down'” Hahaha. Swak! (photo courtesy of @rexonaph on Instagram)
The concert after the run was as much fun as the run itself. There were top DJs like Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Deuce Manila, Martin Pulgar, Euric, Motherbasss, and MC Pao. Sponge Cola closed the party with their hits.
Not be missed were the celebrity sightings. Elmo Magalona and pretty Janine Gutierrez were in the house. Coach Rio was everywhere too.
I chose to have a photo-op with my favorite person Franco and Aika of Team Bridges which was one of those who organized the run for their client, Unilever Philippines. Thank you guys!
In other news, the Finisher’s Kit was full of stuff to keep one clean …. love it!
Some opted to line up at Chef Broosy’s food truck to fill hunger pangs. But most just went to the restos and fastfood shops surrounding MOA.
Some of the sponsors included Smart, Skechers, Inquirer, , Selecta Cornetto, Clear & Pond’s. They had freebies and gimmicks in their booths.
People were doing selfies galore at the event. It’s now officially a family activity. lol
We had so much fun at Rexona Run 2014 and we can’t wait for next year’s edition…thumbs up!
