"…i am not a religious man… but my body is my temple… the pavement is my church… every step, a grace from God… every breath, a silent prayer … every distance, a holy blessing… every run, a fervent worship…" ;-P

Make-A-Wish ® Foundation Philippines benefits from Takbo.ph Runfest through optional participant fundraising.

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

When you support Make-A-Wish, you share in the power of a wish-come-true.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How much is the registration fee?

We request for a donation of P500 for each volunteer. The entire amount will go to help fund the operations of Make-A-Wish Philippines as we grant wishes of kids with life-threatening medical conditions.

2. What distance will we cover?

You will walk a very short distance of 500 meters with us and our Wish Kids. If you want to run longer distances, Takbo.ph offers 5k, 10k, and 21k legs.

Groups, families, and companies with a minimum of 20 participants will be assigned a wish kid. Your group will walk with the wish kid and his/her parents, and your group’s representative will be given a chance to go up on stage to award the kid’s wish immediately after the event!

What’s more, your group is then free to spend time or have brunch with the Wish Kid and his/her family (with the supervision of a Make-A-Wish trained volunteer) after the awarding ceremonies.

As I wobbled my way through the Natgeo Run 2015 42K last Sunday, I felt a little lonely seeing too few of the runner friends I used to either follow behind or literally run into along the route.

297336_10150315450744863_997476304_n

I loved the event, mind you. Natgeo Runs are always a favorite and the 42K route is an old, tried and true, Milo Marathon inspired route that spans the MOA to BGC and back roads and flyovers that I’ve grown to know and love.

I just miss seeing familiar faces. I told my fellow Kamote Sheryll Quimosing about this and she, too, felt a bit sad that the names and faces of friends and running teams that we used to bond with before, during and after racing events seem to have moved on to bigger and better things.

Granted many of them have leveled up to triathlon events, some are organizing their own races. Some have moved on to other athletic disciplines. The rest I guess have simply retired from the sport altogether.

With Team Kamote Runners turning five years old in July, i’m waxing nostalgic I suppose. While I’m rallying my team to get together at the takbo.PH Runfest for our fifth anniversary, I hope to see you guys again, the familiar faces especially clad in their running team uniforms and waving their banners.

Forgive me, it’s a Thursday and I’m having a throwback moment.

By the way, if I miss any teams, forgive me. My memory is not the way it used to be.

adidas announced the launch of the new Climachill™ apparel range, headlined by a black training t-shirt that features intuitive body heat management technology to cool athletes in hot conditions. Perfect for the warm and humid climate in the Philippines, the adidas ClimachillTM is designed to deliver maximum cooling benefit without compromising comfort or design.

 Jeremy LinJeremy Lin

“The body’s core temperature can increase by 3 degree Celsius when we are exercising. To maintain a stable temperature, your body needs to work a lot harder to lose excess heat. This may result in impaired physiological functions, which will ultimately affect performance,” explained Dr Maarten Hupperets, Director of Future Sport Science at adidas. “When it comes to performance, every degree matters. The Climachill™ apparel is the smartest and most advanced sporting product and can provide maximum cooling experience.”

 Simona HalepSimona Halep

For athletes who desire sophisticated solutions in order to regulate body temperature and remain cool in adverse conditions, the innovative Climachill™ apparel is their answer. In this cross-category collection, adidas has also launched training shirts in the most unconventional colour for athletic apparel – black – to showcase the process of the ClimachillTM technology.

 Gareth BaleGareth Bale

Employing industry-first 3D aluminium-cooling spheres, the Climachill™ apparel provides an instant cooling sensation upon contact. In addition to the aluminium dots, the ground-breaking SubZero flat yarn also contains titanium and is woven throughout the inside of each Climachill™ jersey to deliver more cooling capacity.

 Octavious FreemanOctavius Freeman

Filipino athletes don’t have to be afraid of wearing black for fear of heat and they can now train harder, run longer and compete better.

The Climachill™ product range will be available locally from 1st April 2015 at leading adidas Sports performance stores, adidas online store (http://shop.adidas.com.ph) and sports retailers nationwide.

Nike Free 2015 Athletes

In the 11th year of the popular Nike Free franchise, Nike introduces three evolved running styles: the Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit, the Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit and the Nike Free 5.0. The new models take the next step toward harnessing the natural motion of a runner’s feet and body – not by adding, but by honing down to the design features that give runners a natural running experience.

 The collection features redesigned uppers engineered to work holistically with the shoe’s natural flexibility.  The ecosystem offers runners a progression of three natural ride options:

 Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit: Nike’s most natural ride with a snug Flyknit upper and 4-millimeter heel-to-toe offset

  • Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit: A cushioned, natural ride with a contoured Flyknit upper and 6-millimeter offset
  • Nike Free 5.0: Nike’s most cushioned, natural ride with an engineered upper and 8-millimeter offset
