The goal of this promo, CCM 2013 race kits giveaway, is for us to have a peek of where people run, as we are curious and fascinated as to where runners are taken by their feet.
Runroo was started by 4 programmers who wanted to see a different view aside from their codes on their monitor, day in and day out and even in their dreams, that they randomly thought of going around Cebu on foot. Then, 1 journalist friend, Armie Garde, joined them who said she’s going to help in their big goal by writing them down on an online diary, which is now the runroo.com.
They started at KM 0 in August, 2011, and ended their weekend runs every 25KM (more or less 3 towns).
Finally, in December, 2011, they’re back at where they started KM 0 with more friends.
We’re happy that we got a good interesting number of entries of places where people run. We’ll try to present all the wonderful submissions of running grounds / routes / places / spots, as they’re gift meant to be shared.
From Outside Philippines
Entry from Germany showed us that they run there with helmet on their heads, view entry here. =)
An Ungo runner was running or swimming at Kota Kinabalu, view entry here.
But the entries of running places around Philippines that we gathered showed that we can not to be outdone by the imported running grounds.
The scenic road-view of Tanay, Rizal, view entry here.
Then to the road running of Metro Manila, view entry here.
Before we present the Visayas entries, we’ll share the running grounds of Mindanao first.
From the place of Manny Pacquaio, view General Santos City entry here.
Running on concrete or dirt road or pineapple plantaion, views in Bukidnon are just awesome, views entry here , here, and here. (Malaybalay, Bukidnon had their 1st marathon this June, 2012, which you might want to watch out next year.)
Here is Boracay kind of running. View entry here.
How about crossing San Juanico Bridge of Leyte / Samar, view entry here.
And, finally for Cebu, here’s a not-so quick look of where people in Cebu go out and run. We have to skip posting some entries as we could not fit them all here.
If you feel adventurous and you wanted to ride a boat first before getting a run, here’s Olango Island — running and island hopping in one entry here. Entry comes with complete map and directions on how to go to Olango Island.
Busay, Cebu City has the most entries. It’s a quick getaway from the hustles and bustles of city life, I guess this makes this place a favorite. Not to mention it’s added extra challenge of being an uphill route. Three entries here, here, and here.
If you don’t want to go up to Busay, you can run at IT Park in Lahug, view entry here.
Another park you might want to go for a quick run in Cebu is Cebu Memorial Park (CEMPARK), view here.
Feel getting some speedwork done or start running, Cebu City Sports Complex is the place, entry here.
Or, you can simply go around in the streets of Metro Cebu, like Hiway, Mandaue, view here.
If you want a change from road running, how about bridge running the famous the Three Bridges of Cebu which would take you to 3 towns of Cebu (Mandaue, Lapulapu, and almost to Consolacion), view here and here.
If people in the north of Metro Cebu have Three Bridges, people down south of Talisay have South Road Properties (SRP) where it’s part of Cebu City Marathon route, entry here.
Following is not a running destination in Cebu, but a lot of submitted picture entries are taken by this guy. Running experience will be much better if you see this guy with his gears, view entry here.
Liloan, Cebu has a lot of nooks where you can have a quick or long run, view entries here, here, and here. Thus, it’s not a wonder why Exterra Trail Run is held here.
Going further north of Liloan is Carmen, entry here.
Or, how about go down south, then go up to the highest peak of Cebu, Osmena Peak, Dalaguete, entry here.
Or when we thought that Moalboal, Cebu is all about beaches, entry here.
Or that Badian, Cebu is Kawasan Falls, entry here and another Badian entry here.
That Toledo, Cebu is not only the home of TAD (Toledo Adik sa Dagan) runners, but it has some hidden beautiful trails, entry here and here, here.
There are still a lot of entries from Cebu but the above entries can already give you a feel of how it is to come here, and have a run.
