Romeo “Meyux” Cordova. Founder of Cebu Trail Runners

As he mentioned yesterday in the Runnilla Eco Challenge press conference held at Minglanilla Municipality,

“The thought has inspired us to organize this event, not only to raise funds but to promote trail running in Cebu,” Cordova said…via Group holds benefit run for students | Sun.Star.

In a country which has 80% trail, it is still not widely common for people to run or just trek the trails. In his talk, Meyux will share some of the trails in Cebu City and nearby where he usually go to to train for his trail ultramarathon races.

He will also share what are the basic equipment you should have in trail adventures.

Bonifacio Monjas. Xterra Trail Run 2012 & 2013 Top 3 Placer.
like his fb page here >>
Read our featured story of him here >>.

Having experienced racing competitively on the road and trail races, Bonifacio will share to us if there’s a difference between the 2. We’ll try to pick his mind more about his training, adventures and misadventures on the trail, as well as on the road.

He’s also a coach, so let’s see if he could share a trick or two with us.

And, another to watch out is that runroo will introduce something new to look forward to in our running community! =)

This talk is in part of the Runnilla Eco Challenge (April 13, 2014). So we will probably have some product displays / demos from the sponsors of Runnilla.


The Runnilla organizing team is also happy to announce for the coming support of Planet Sports in Active Zone, Ayala, Cebu, and The Athletes Foot, Ayala Cebu.


Sound system on the talk is provided by Mochi Audio, for contact and more info here >>.
