Nike’s We Run race returns to Manila for a second year, to inspire, motivate and connect runners around the world. On December 2, 2012, Filipino runners will be part of the global We Run race movement, which will see a total of 395,500 runners from 34 cities participating—establishing a new global community of runners through Nike’s most connected race series using the innovative Nike+ technology. The We Run race series kicked off on September 1 in Prague, Czech Republic, and will conclude on December 15 in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

Nike’s We Run Manila 10K race will energize the streets of Pasay City with the 13,000 high-octane runners expected to make tracks all over the SM Mall of Asia’s grounds. Set against the remarkable view of Manila Bay, the initial stretch of the race will let runners pass through the commercialized area of the Mall of Asia with the SMX Convention Center and the latest icon of the area, the eye-shaped SM Bay City Arena. Runners are set to leave urban commercial scenery and head towards the fields along Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard. Closing in on the halfway point of the race, runners will then pass the upcoming Belle Casino, a gold complex glistening in the morning sun. As they take a turn on Pacific Avenue and race past the same landmarks, runners will come upon the iconic ferris-wheel along Seaside Boulevard that marks the final kilometer to the finish line. The panoramic run would not be complete without an engaging en route entertainment featuring some of Manila’s top musical acts.

Meeting the runners at the finish line is the Race Village that will offer an array of services. Runners can expect to be pampered with massage booths and get recharged at any of the refreshment stalls while being entertained by the energetic musical line-up.

“Nike’s We Run race is the celebration of running across the world, the culmination of every runner’s dedication and commitment to train harder, defy expectations and push their bodies’ limits. Nike aims to revolutionize the running experience, by allowing runners to inspire, motivate and connect with other runners globally through the Nike+ Technology”, shared Sanjay Gangopadhyay, Marketing Director of Nike South East Asia. “With the second edition of the We Run race in Manila, Nike envisions Filipinos, the youth in particular, to further move the local running scene forward by leading the active lifestyle movement.”

This year, Nike is taking inspiration to a new level as runners will be able to follow two of Philippines most popular lifestyle bloggers, Robbie Becroft of and Lissa Kahayon of who will be embarking on their first We Run race. Follow their We Run journey as they take on the challenge of preparing for Nike’s We Run MNL 10K race, blogging at each step of the journey, and witness how Nike elevates their everyday running experience with the various product offerings including the Nike+ ecosystem.

To get race-ready, Nike will organize four training sessions focusing on proper running techniques and tips. Runners will also be able to test out the Nike+ Running app (available on iOS and Android), and try out the season’s latest running products. These clinics will be led by podiatrists and Nike Training Club instructors to further educate individuals on how they can reach their potential as runners.

The registration for Nike’s We Run race will commence on Monday, October 8 2012 online through and also on-ground at selected retail stores.

In the Philippines, cancer is the third leading cause of death. Yet there are very little cancer prevention programs or consciousness programs. What does this mean? With little awareness or concern, for your relative, friend, office mate or you, this may mean, recognizing it too late, diagnosing too late or less chances of surviving. In the Philippines, cancer survival rates are low.

Team Philippines Benefiting LIVESTRONG works to change these facts because we know we live in a society where change can easily be done. But we just need your support. In our society, spreading knowledge is about creating the numbers, coming together as one group of individuals who empower each other, and demand change. Think about your friend or family member, or that story you heard from someone else – those people who have faced cancer, are fighting cancer or whose lives were forever changed by cancer. They are the people we are coming together for.

Every year, Lance Armstrong celebrates his induction into cancer on October 2nd. Team Philippines, supports this organization because we believe that the Lance Armstrong Foundation is one that attacks cancer holistically. The fight is not only about the research or the medication. It is about the people who are fighting, their families who are strong and struggling, the lifestyles that keep us healthy and cancer-free and the awareness that we need to take action.

This year, we will hold the Philippine event on October 21st a Sunday. It is a bike and run event designed to unite, inspire and empower people affected by cancer as well as to promote the need for healthy lifestyles. The proceeds of which will support local projects that furthers the advocacies of LIVESTRONG.

The LIVESTRONG Foundation was founded in 1997 by Lance, whose mission is to inspire and empower people affected by cancer, to unite people to fight cancer through programs, experiences, taking aim at the gap between what is known and what is done, for cancer prevention, providing access to screening and care, research – to improve the quality of life for cancer survivors – that you must not let cancer take control of it.

The annual event is now known as LIVESTRONG Day Philippines, hosted by Circulo Verde, an Ortigas & Company development in Calle Industria, Quezon City. Thankfully, we are not alone in this fight. Organizations like the Ortigas & Company have been gracious in extending their support. This support helps offset the costs associated with the event day, but also generates donations that we turnover to local cancer foundations. This also means that participants of the event enjoy some token items at the activity areas. Aside from Circulo Verde supporting us, we have Makati Medical Center, Nattural Quality Corporation’s Ampalaya Plus, Booster C energy shots, Gold’s Gym, MyTAG, San Miguel Beer, Dunkin Donuts, Manila Water, Enduro & Trifemme Sports, Multisport magazine, BikeBros, LoopBikers, PasigMTB,, the Pasig City Running Club, and for our online all-mode payment portal.

Because we want the support to continue year-round, at the event we also engage activities aimed at raising funds to cover event expenses. Through the sale of jerseys and merchandise, can we be able to fund the event. Personal donations are also welcome because these are personal actions that unite us against the fight. In 2011, the event was 3000 strong, this year we hope for more. Coming together empowers, it is our strength. It reminds us that we are not alone in this fight and there are many others that need our support.

Last year, Team Philippines Benefiting LIVESTRONG asked the Philippines to imagine their world without cancer. This year, we ask for your strength. We believe that coming together, fighting as an entire society gives strength. We encourage everyone to come. We believe that Unity is Strength.
