RUPM 2015: Rousing the ferocity of the Filipino progressive athletes beyond his known limits


As the year crosses its halfway mark, Unilab Active Health (ULAH) is blazing the trail anew towards empowering progressive athletes to exceed their limits and perform better as preparations for the Run United Philippine Marathon (RUPM)—the third leg of this year’s Run United Series—get underway.

Aiming to bring the pursuit sports excellence of every progressive Filipino runner to the next level, ULAH has developed a holistic, system integrated approach to help the progressive athletes go beyond their limits, taking inspiration from four (4) key pillars: events, training, nutrition, and gear.

For RUPM 2015, ULAH will be hosting a three-day race kit claiming expo at One Esplanade in Mall of Asia from October 1 to 3, three days before the actual race day. During the event, RUPM racers will enjoy a host of exclusive perks, freebies, and discounts from participating exhibitors, as well as racing tips and advices from coaches and sports science experts.

It has been a known practice for ULAH to enhance the runners’ race experience in every Run United series since dominating the running scene four years ago. From having an exclusive lane in 2012, a tunnel finish in 2013, and a red carpet finish last year, this year’s RUPM leg will feature a start and finish area at One Esplanade, where finishers of the 42-kilometer category can savor their victory by concluding their race on a red carpet lane.

Adding to the excitement for the upcoming test of skill and endurance will be the RUPM Mentorship Kit, a level up of what ULAH gave RU2 participants. This specialized training kit will include a customized Exceed Yourself Training Plan, a comprehensive training plan created by Coach Ani de Leon-Brown—the fastest Filipina Ironman, and member and coach of Team Unilab Active Health—now integrated with a nutrition that’s designed to help runners achieve target finish more efficiently.

“This guide is a step-by-step, day-to-day progressive activity plan that will guarantee the progressive athletes a stronger finish time, provided that they religiously follow every aspect of the entire module,” says Alex Panlilio, ULAH Head and Operating Vice President. “Using the concepts from this training plan, you’ll know when to push harder, take a long run, work on cross-training, or load on a power run, as well as understand the significance of relaxation and proper recovery techniques.”

Aside from this, RUPM participants will also have the chance to don their own personalized race bib during the race, a treat that serves as a runner’s swag during the race and a valuable badge of honor post-race. Also included together with the bib in the RUPM mentorship kit meant to be taken daily: a pack of three capsules of Enervon Activ to help build stamina and keep them training and performing at an optimal level, a pack of the new Active Health Carbgel for energy that lasts during workout, and an individual sachet of Enervon HP Recovery Drink for use after a training session for faster recovery, helping athletes bounce back before laspag attacks. This is ULAH’s complete sports nutrition system that can help the progressive athlete achieve his personal best.

“At the end of the day, our goal is to help our participants become a better version of themselves, all while having fun. This personalized badge will be something to remind them of their feat of exceeding their limits and breaking boundaries,” notes Panlilio.

An evolution of mentoring

Another prominent innovation to the upcoming RUPM will be the addition of pacers during the race day to ensure that every progressive athlete’s quest to exceed their limits will be challenging yet enjoyable.

The ULAH website ( has also transformed from being an events-based information platform to becoming a tool that progressive athletes can use to become better, more competitive athletes. “We are dedicated to understanding the needs of the progressive athlete and together, we strive to act as mentors in helping them become better versions of themselves,” Panlilio explains.

“We are very excited to be a part of Run United Philippine Marathon says Jan Catherine Sy, Director of Business Development for One Esplanade. With new innovations, this year is sure to bring out the best in the athletes, inspiring each to reach their goal.”

Online registration for RUPM 2015, slated on October 4, 2015, will be opening at a much earlier date to ensure that participants get their preferred singlet and finisher’s shirt sizes (register before August 15, 2015 to get a guaranteed singlet and finishers’ shirt size). Priority online registration will start by June 12 for registered 21km finishers from both RU1 and RU2 and will then be open to the public, both online and in-store (selected Toby’s and Runnr outlets), beginning June 19.

New Active Health apparel collection will also be available during the three-day race expo, happening from October 1-3 also at One Esplanade.

adidas’ Dennis Kimetto Uses the Energy Return of BOOST™ to Run the Fastest Marathon of All-Time


Official Press Release

MANILA, Philippines – adidas’ Dennis Kimetto ran the fastest marathon in history wearing adidas BOOST™ at the 2014 Berlin Marathon.  With a time of 2:02:57 Kimetto shattered the previous world record by an astounding 26 seconds wearing the super lightweight adizero Adios BOOST.

 “Dennis’ world record breaking performance while wearing adidas BOOST demonstrates the result of elite athletes using industry leading innovation to achieve unprecedented feats,” said Adrian Leek General Manager of adidas Running. “We continue to push boundaries by working closely with our athletes to develop the best products running has to offer.”

 adidas BOOST was also on the feet of second place men’s finisher Emmanuel Muthai who joined Kimetto in breaking the previous world record. The top two female finishers Tirfi Tsegaye and Fayse Tadese were also wearing Adios BOOST as they triumphantly crossed the finish line in Berlin to provide adidas with a dominating presence at the podium.

 The results in Berlin contribute to a long line of success for Adios BOOST following its introduction last year including former world record holder Wilson Kipsang running a course record at the 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon.


The adidas adizero Adios BOOST shoe has an MSRP of Php7995 and is available at leading adidas and Runnr stores in the Philippines. Featuring hand crafted design, by legendary adizero pioneer Mr.Omori, the adidas adizero Adios BOOST incorporates five key benefits to deliver more speed than ever before:

Course Description

Vaseline Men XTERRA Off-Road Triathlon 2014

Liloan, Cebu

XTERRA Triathlon in Liloan, Cebu will test athletes’ skill once again this 2014.   The route will have slight changes, but this year there will be two transition areas.  Transition 1(to be announced) will be the starting area for the swim leg and transition to the start of the bike leg.  Transition 2 will be in Liloan Elementary School track oval, staging area for the end of the bike leg, start of the run leg and finish line and the expo area.

The race will start at the shores of Liloan.  Swimmers will do a 1.5 kilometer of open water swim. For LITE participants, swimmers will do 500 meters straight, one loop course for LITE.

Our bike course is a mix of single tracks, fire roads, farmlands, grasslands and paved roads.  FULL Tri participants must complete 2 loops of the 18-kilometer bike course while LITE participants must complete one loop. The bike course caters to all types of bikers. Experts will find the course fast and exciting. While beginners will feel it’s challenging. The first portion of the race is a long flat, paved road, perfect for sprinting and securing a place in the pack. Then it’s followed by long climbs while roads change from paved to trail.  Trail becomes narrower and racers will encounter mixed vegetation along the course.

It has enough single tracks, which challenges any skill level; lots of rolling and steep hills, which test all levels of endurance; fast and quick descents to test handling skills and a few technical portions, which will excite all athletes.

The bike course will traverse fire roads and paved roads, crossing different barangays. The terrain of the route changes dramatically from grasslands, forest, jungle terrain and open areas.

Furthermore the weather varies all throughout the bike course. Hot and sunny one minute then extreme humidity the next.

Our run course is similar to our bike course.  Trail is a combination of rolling terrain, single track, fire roads and paved roads.  Jungle terrain and grasslands will become a common site for athletes.  The Run course is as challenging as the bike course with long technical climbs, followed by dusty and rocky terrain. Participants last year mentioned the run as epic with tough climbs and fast descents.
