Recreational Outdoor eXchange or R.O.X is popular to us runners as a usual venue for race registration, claiming of race kits and other activities related to running events.

“We make it a point to cater to all kinds of adventure seekers, so even if you’re just a beginner, a trip to our store will give you the itch to try something new, exciting, and adventurous, for this weekend and the many more weekends to come,” said Palma, Assistant Vice President of R.O.X.
So if you don’t have any plans yet for the coming long weekend, check out the following list of activities and the proper gears to match your sport, brought to you by R.O.X:
4-day beach getaway
For most of us, a long weekend means a great excuse to hit the beach and take a cool dip. But before you take that long drive to Pagudpud or that quick flight to Boracay, gear up with some cool beach wear to stand out in the sunbathing crowd.
Quiksilver offers top of the line beach clothes and other accessories for men, while Roxy and Volcom offer the hottest bikinis and apparel for women. And to make your vacation as relaxing as it can be, grab some sun block, rash guards, and other beach items from R.O.X. as well.
For those who aren’t content to just lie in the beach, surfing is the way to go. Hot spots like Zambales and La Union are filled with avid surfers this time of year, and to really get in the surfing zone, take a pick among R.O.X.’s wide range of boards and other surfing gear. With your board at the ready, all you need is a pair of board shorts from Quiksilver and you’re ready to catch that next wave!
Climbing, camping and trekking
If you’re craving for the rush of scaling peaks and conquering the woods, then you’re likely planning for a trip up the mountains to go climbing and camping. For this kind of adventure, you can never go wrong with brands like The North Face and Mountain Hardwear, which offer tents, body gear, backpacks and other essentials that seasoned climbers and trekkers swear by for their extremely high quality and durability.
Backpacking and biking
Whether you plan to go on a fun trip to some exotic tourist spot, or explore the wonders of the wilderness, bringing a reliable backpack is a must. Mountain Hardwear’s Splitter features a spacious loading design that makes it easy to reach for food, water, and other essentials, and its secure pockets are specially made for the outdoors.
And if you’d rather ride the trail than hike it, R.O.X offers a spectacular array of mountain bikes, from the most high-end and cutting-edge to the entry-level variety. Skateboarders can join in on the fun as well, as R.O.X. offers the finest boards from top brands, as well as high-end skater shoes from DC to complete the skater look.
Hit the ground running
Wherever you plan to go to, the right footwear will make a huge difference—especially if you plan on traversing some rocky trails this weekend. For those hardcore hikes, or even those long walks along scenic routes, R.O.X. offers footwear from acclaimed brands Columbia and Salomon. The Salomon Crossmax for instance can be worn for the road or for the trail, and with its SensiFLEX technology, it flexes as your foot expands on longer treks.
