Runrio, Amway to hold Nutrilite Run

NUTRILITE, the world’s No. 1 selling vitamins and dietary supplements’ brand, is hosting the 5th edition of its annual Nutrilite Health Run, a national initiative that advocates wellness and healthy living. 

And rightfully so, the company partnered with the country’s premiere race organizer RUNRIO, Events, Inc., to bring the best running experience for those who will participate. 

This year, Nutrilite aims to gather more than 12,000 runners in Manila and Davao.

The event kicks off in Manila on Oct. 15 at the SM Mall of Asia Complex Grounds and on Oct. 29 at the SM Ecoland in Davao, with the proceeds of the run going to the Amway One By One Campaign for Children, a program initiated by the company in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd).

“Amway advocates a holistic, healthy, and active lifestyle. We are committed to our advocacy to encourage more people to prioritize their personal wellness. We want more people to live healthy by eating right, taking the right supplements, and being active. Our annual Nutrilite Health Run is our proof of providing a health sustaining activity for all,” said Leni Olmedo, Country Manager, Amway Philippines.

This year’s Nutrilite Health Run will cover four categories—1K, 5K, 10K, and 21K. 

“This year, we are adding the 21K together with the other distances. We acknowledge the fact that Filipino runners want to challenge themselves. That is why having this distance as part of the race, participants are assured of first-class race organization, management and, more importantly on the safety of our event. The run is something we are highly committed to as we continue to encourage healthy and active lifestyle among the Filipino community,” Olmedo said.

All 21K Finishers will receive a Finisher’s Medal and Finisher’s Shirt. The 1st 21K runner to cross the finish line, on the other hand, will get a P20,000 Cash Prize, while the 1st 10K Finisher will get a P10,000 Cash Prize.

During the race proper, runners will have the chance to win exciting raffle prizes and experience Amway Brands through the Race Ville Expo. The event will also highlight the live performance of Sponge Cola, a notable supporter, and participant in the Nutrilite Health Run.

There will also be a free running clinic happening at the Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati City every Mondays and Wednesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. starting this Aug. 16. The same activity will also be held at the People’s Park in Davao City every Tuesdays and Thursdays starting on Sept. 5.

The registration fee for the health run is P250, for the 1K, 5K, and 10K, and PP850 for the 21K, respectively. All the participating runners will also get free Nutrilite Health Run shirt and race bib. Gun time is 5:30 a.m. for 1K, 5:30 a.m. for 5k, 5 a.m. for 10k and 3:30 a.m. for the 21K distances respectively.
