Rose Pharmacy Run: ATHLETES TALK #1
Though they say that Philippines is 80% trail, the “trail running” scene can still be considered young in this country.
So without much further ado, we’re inviting you again to a Trail Running 101 talk to appreciate our own lovely trails:
What: Athletes Talk, Trail Running 101
When: THURSDAY 7PM, Feb. 13, 2014 (TAKE NOTE: IT’S THURSDAY!)
Where: AS Lobby, UP Cebu, Lahug, Cebu City (UP High School side)
How to join? Simply “heart” or post a comment to Athletes Talk 2: Trail Running 101 aktib page >>. It’s free!
…and let’s get reacquainted with our trails and get in touch with our inherent love for it.
Following are our interesting speakers:
Nap dela Torre
Silver Trophy, HK Vibram 100
If you witnessed the CCM 2014, that guy who was dragging tires at his back the whole 42KM distance, he was that guy! Or he was that guy in the 7/42 (7 marathons in straight 7 days), then 8/42.
Being a city guy, he will share tips and experiences on how he trained for his trail races in the CITY.
2nd placer, BDM 160
You might wonder that BDM 160 is a road race so what is she supposed to do with trail running. This girl is actually an all-terrain runner, she races on roads and on trail. She was a mountaineer before she got hooked into running. Then last year, she finally find an event that combined the things she is most passionate about, running and mountains, in trail running!
As a mountaineer, she will be sharing with us basic tips in mountaineering that are applicable in trail running, tips on transitioning or switching training for road race to trail race.
You can check our feature story of her here >>.
Brian Tan Seng
CM 50 Admin / Trail Blazer
Just like our other speakers, this guy has been running races, road and trails, all over the country and outside. If he’s not racing, he’s trail blazing. So he will be sharing his experiences in different trail races, and trail treks so we could have an idea of what to expect on those races and treks, or simply just get more inlove with nature.
This talk is in part of Runnilla Eco Challenge,
and is supported by our friends from mochiaudio.com for the sound system, and bridesbestfriend.ph for assistance.
Rose Buenconsejo. A runner who runs after runners, and their stories, and her dream to become a NEDBANK.
