In line with this RUNRIO Trilogy Series 2017 promises to be the most exciting ever, the trilogy series is expected to attract an average of 12,000 running enthusiasts per leg from all over the country.
- 1st Leg - June 25 and features a half-marathon run including 10Km and 5Km race.
- 2nd Leg - August 13, where it will showcase Rio’s very own Afroman distance which is a 32Km run, with shorter distances - 21Km, 10Km and 5Km. The 32Km is considered by runners as the ideal race for first-timers who aim to finish their very first full marathon.
- 3rd Leg - The final leg will cap the series on October 1 with a full marathon of 42Km that also includes 21Km, 10Km, and 5Km race distances.
Runners who complete the highest distance of all 3 races will be honored at the RUNRIO Trilogy Awards Night.
The very first RUNRIO Trilogy was held in 2010 with the primary purpose of providing a progressive running program for those who want to finish a full marathon. This year’s RUNRIO Trilogy, will also feature popular actor and running enthusiast, Dingdong Dantes as the event ambassador.
“We are excited to launch the RUNRIO Trilogy race series because there are many running enthusiasts out there who are looking forward to this event. This year marks the 7th year of RUNRIO Trilogy, whose main objective is to educate runners to train and race progressively,” said award-winning actor Dantes. “Aside from this, part of the proceeds of this year’s race series will go to YesPinoy Foundation to support the organization’s philanthropic works” added Dantes.
Dantes is the founding chairman of YesPinoy Foundation.
The announcement of the RUNRIO Trilogy series is part of RUNRIO Events, Inc.’s expansion program that will bring more running activities to the public in the coming months.
I'm so glad also to the goal of Coach Rio to set a foundation and give training support and scholarship for our inspiring new runners in our country.
