Today, Team Herbalife has top age groupers and up & coming triathletes among its ranks.

Geometry of Strong

Looking into every detail to help runners run more efficiently, Saucony launched the Geometry of Strong series, a completely redesigned heel-to-toe offset of 8mm – 33% lower than the average running shoe of 12mm – on three of the brand’s best-selling award winning models: the Guide, Hurricane and Triumph. This change in geometry allows runners to adjust their stride and land on their mid-foot offering greater control, alignment and suspension, allowing for a more powerful stride. This change also allows the shoe to be even more lightweight without comprising cushioning and stability.

Guide 6 – Stability in Every Move

The Guide is Saucony’s flagship shoe and winner of Runner’s World International’s coveted Best Shoe of the Year award. The Guide 6 features a fit and ride designed to meet the needs of runners seeking stability in an everyday training shoe. It has a mid-foot saddle that promotes a snug and secure fit while the Comfort Lite sock-liner embedded in the shoe supports the arch and lessens forefoot pressure for a more comfortable run. Moreover, the triangular lug out-sole design and added flex groove increase forefoot flexibility for a smoother ride.

Hurricane 15 – Great Fit and Feel
Awarded Best Update by Runner’s World, the Hurricane is Saucony’s full featured premium guidance shoe. The Hurricane 15 blends the features of a traditional stability shoe with the feel of a flexible, lightweight trainer the Hurricane is known for. The upper is upgraded with Support Frame, a heel locking technology that provides a secure, stable fit. On the other hand, the PowerGrid™ mid-sole technology offers superior cushioning and the 8mm offset encourages a lower-impact ride.

Triumph 10 – Form and Function
The Triumph 10 is highly recommended for runners who are looking for a shoe that strikes the perfect balance in both form and function. This shoe features deeper flex groove in the forefoot for added flexibility, while its breathable open mesh and a supportive upper provide comfort in every stride. It also has the PowerGrid™ mid-sole technology for a plush ride for the runner seeking a cushioned feel. Another plus for the Triumph 10 is its redesigned decoupled heel crash pad that gives way for smoother landing and more efficient transition.

From the gun start to the finish line, this year’s Rexona Run promises to push running enthusiasts, professional runners andrecreational runners to DO:MORE.

Mar Corazo, Rexona Brand Manager says, “We are always finding ways to make the Rexona Run more exciting than the last. This year, we wanted the Rexona Run to appeal to more people and inspire them to Do:More.”

As one of the most sought after races in the Philippines, runners look forward to the Rexona Run every year for itsexciting twists, prizes and categories.

On October 20, 2013 at the Mall of Asia Grounds, be prepared for a different kind of race—the Rexona Run To Your Beat, the Philippines’ first ever multi-sensorial after-midnight run where live music pushes people to run further and culminates in a party at the finish line.

“This was inspired by the insight that when you run to the beat of the music, you run faster, you go further, you’re energized to do more,” said the Rexona Brand Manager.

From the first gun start at 3AM, live performances will be scattered around the race track, adding a very different take on running. The 5k race will have performances by Delta Street, Sandwich, The Diegos, DJ Mia Ayesa, Deuce Manila and DJ Nina. The 10k race will get the chance to run to Funk Avy and DJ Khai. While the 21k race will see all performances, as well as the finale concert of Rico Blanco, Elmo Magalona and DJ Mars Miranda.

Coach Rio, Rexona partner and running expert says, “It’s been proven that listening to music unleashes your energy, allowing you to run further.”

In line with Rexona’s DO:MORE philosophy, Run to Your Beat presents the perfect avenue for all individuals to DO:MORE – whether you’re an avid runner or leisure runner.

Run to Your Beat is also the ultimate test of Rexona’s efficacy because the product keeps you dry and fresh from the start of the race until the end of the party.
