Color Manila Run expand boundaries

Color Manila’s natural high lives on – from their very first run in Bonifacio Global City last 2013 with colored powder at day to glow lights at night, now they take fun run in a new level; this time runners will be playing with glow paint! On August 30 as runners go through the race route in Filinvest City, they will be doused with neon-colored paint and once they’re under a blacklight, boom! Their experience are heightened as the Runners are transformed and they glow in multi-color effect and as runners cross the finish line, all finishers, that’s right ALL finishers are rewarded with the much coveted Color Manila 2014 medal.

Now the fun starts all over again! After the finishline, Ravevolution a group known for color paint rave events will keep the energy high by having its DJs play all night long and splatter glow paint using their glow paint cannons.

What’s with the change? “We want to bring out the fun in the fun runs, and make it so exciting that you would want to do it all over again! We innovate in each leg, so we always have something new in store for our runners.” says Color Manila’s Business Development Head Justine Cordero. “The heart of innovation is to keep the energy high and hopefully spread more smiles, colours and a unique experience for everyone, without sacrificing safety that is why our team made sure that the glow paints are laboratory-tested and non-toxic, making glow-paint edition another fun, and safe event.

Registration is on-going until Aug 29 or while supply last. Runners can register online through their credit card or Paypal account or purchase a prepaid card that are available in selected Toby’s and Runnr stores and to make it more convenient for our participants they can go to any SM Cinema and purchase their tickets there.


Each race kit will include glow glasses, glow sticks, Color Manila tank top, race bib, finisher’s medal plus freebies from our sponsors. Race kit claiming will be from August 28-30, at the Filinvest Tent, Alabang, alongside with the Health and Wellness Expo, in which participants can take part of and enjoy the discounts and giveaways from our partners.

Color Manila Goes Regional: With the success of Color Manila color-concept races in 2013, it was bound to go expand its boundaries outside Manila and in 2014 it was welcomed with open arms in the queen city- Cebu City. They splatter color like there was no tomorrow, sang the songs, our DJ’s played and posted selfie photos on their Facebook and Instagram accounts, in other words they showed us that Cebuanos knows to have fun like no other.

The Snowball Effect: This was just the beginning, thousands of eye candy photos posted online, it was just matter of time that other cities follow. Then we had Color Manila Nite- Cebu leg and of course Color Manila Bacolod was just around the corner and yes they partied hard and showed they can add their own spice to the colourful event by adding a twist of Maskara Festival.

Now, Color Manila aims to extend this kaleidescope of colors and splashes of fun to La Union (end of 2014), Iloilo, Davao and CDO by 2015. “We want the local communities to embrace this event and bring out their unique culture through Color Manila Run.” Says Justine Cordero of Color Manila.

Let us keep spreading good vibes and color to every part of the Philippines. Truly color concept races is more fun in the Philippines!

August 1 was a memorable day for our Alaska IronKids as they participate in the Alaska IronKids support Gatas for Breakfast, a practice run for a good cause. It was an enriching experience for the IronKids participants as they not only practiced running with the Ironman Pros like Pete Jacobs, Caroline Steffen, Belinda Granger, and Alaska Tri-Aspire Team Coach Mat O’Halloran, Banjo Norte and Jenny Guerrero, they also shared a nutritious breakfast with milk to over 1,500 young students of Mactan Elementary School. This effort to foster a healthy consciousness among individuals and families—through the combination of exercise and proper nutrition—is Alaska’s way in helping fight against the increasing number of overweight and undernourished children in the country. Having a healthy and active lifestyle does not only involve physical activity but also proper nutrition, living up to Alaska’s key meesage, Nutrition.Action.Champion.

Press Release:

Whether you run for the thrill of it, to stay fit of healthy, or both, get ready for a more enjoyable running routine as Salomon promotes Citytrail running, inspired from its mountain trail running heritage. Alongside the launch of Salomon’s Citytrail products, the brand is happily prepping to host the first-ever event in the Philippines following its success in different countries including the U.S., and select countries in Europe and Asia such as Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

After much deliberation, the Salomon Citytrail Manila is set to launch on September 7, 2014 at Intramuros, Manila.

The oldest city in the Philippines, The Walled City was deemed perfect for an adventure run that will not only be challenging and exciting with its dynamic urban landscape, but rich with culture and heritage as well. Even more enticing is the fact that the race starts at 4PM, which means the runners will experience all these amid the Manila sunset –the best time to explore and absorb the old fortress.

The sunset run is set to target at least 500 participants made up of adventure seekers, road runners, weekend warriors, fitness buffs, and trail running enthusiasts. Divided into two categories of 12km and 6km, the course will not be a conventional road run and will include challenges such as climbing stairs, crossing bridges, and clambering ramps around the Walled City. Foot strikes on different surfaces, ascends on bridges and stairs will stimulate trail running skills while rediscovering Philippine heritage and culture. Salomon brand ambassadors, Philippine Sky Runners & Suunto Athletes will be the assigned to selected areas to marshal and guide the participants in the running tour. The cutoff time for the whole race is two hours.

The registration will be open from August 1 to August 29 at the Salomon stores and August 30 to September 5 at R.O.X. Bonifacio High Street. Participants may also register online ( The fee is P900 and P1,200 respectively for the 6km and 12km categories. All registrants will get a race bib, timing chip, Salomon Citytrail singlet, Citytrail cap, post race meal and a historical running tour of Intramuros City. 12km finishers will get a Citytrail Finisher’s medal. Top three male and female winners per distance will be awarded with R.O.X. gift certificates, Salomon products, and other freebies. Salomon items and products from sponsors will also be given away to lucky participants on the day of the event.

Fortunately, participants need not to worry because substantial parking spaces will be made available within the venue. Plus, a baggage counter will be situated within the Start/Finish area in Fort Santiago where race participants may leave their belongings.

Salomon Citytrail Manila is a green run as it promotes sustainability and environmental preservation. No disposables will be given throughout the race course. Gatorade dispensers and water jugs will be stationed around the road areas of Intramuros City.

In line with Salomon’s campaign to “Elevate Your Run”, it is through the Citytrail event and its latest Citytrail footwear that Salomon aspires to introduce Citytrail running as an urban alternative to trail running.

A global event meant to entice everyone to “Elevate Your Run”, Citytrail running is all about being creative and imaginative when it comes to making your own trails in the city. It involves making use of the different surfaces within the city like pathways, roads, sidewalks, alleyways, bridges, stairs, et cetera to keep the experience exciting and more challenging.

Living up to its claim as the leading expert in trail running equipment, Salomon will also be launching the X-Scream, the best choice for Multi-Terrain Urban Running. Dynamic and cushioned, the X-Scream is an agile Citytrail shoe that injects mountain spirit into running in an urban landscape.

Designed for an adaptive fit, dynamic cushioning, and grip, the X-Scream features a specific set of innovative technologies including a Lace pocket to provide easy storage for the Quick Fit lacing system; Quicklace, for a minimalistic and strong lace for one-pull tightening; OS Tendon for a perfect ride; Light Weight Muscle Traction; Friction Free Lace Eyelet; Contagrip HA; Molded EVA; Sensiflex, for a combination of foothold and freedom; Contagrip LT for grip and durability; EVA shaped Footbed; Sensifit; and a Non-marking Contagrip.

Running and staying fit need not be boring. Through its innovative products and engaging events such as the upcoming Salomon Citytrail Manila event, Salomon calls out to everyone to elevate their run and mix things up by exploring new and challenging trails.

1. Wellness Listings. Join our listing which will allow you to advertise your business, services, products and promotions.

The system comes complete with client management abilities, reporting tools as well as full marketing and messaging capabilities and everything is stored in “the cloud”.

“Wellness Community PH is a subsidiary of Gumnut Systems International. We have used our more than twenty (20) years of experience developing systems for Personal Trainers, Spas, Salons, Events Management, Hotels and Wellness Centers all over the world to create a simple and effective solution for smaller wellness businesses” says Rey Martin Canate, Sales and Marketing Manager of Wellness Community Philippines

“We wanted to provide a solution for the increasingly mobile independent wellness business owners and what we have created is far more than we initially planned, it is a real community. We have taken our time and gone to great lengths to make sure the system was really delivered and in doing so we have brought the most powerful and most popular features of our main software over to Wellness Community for an amazing price.”


You can list your business on Wellness Community for a single annual payment which will give you your own mini-website where you can upload your information, brochures, prices and promotions.

“Promotions are going to be a huge part of Wellness Community.” says Canate. “Not only can a user search for a particular type of wellness business in their area, they will be able to search for particular wellness promotions in that area too! As a business owner, this will bring more people to your door.

If you want to manage your wellness business including online bookings, payments, messaging and reports there will be a low monthly cost, but you can use the whole system FREE for 30 Days to see what you think before spending any money at all!
