RUNRIO honored roughly 500 runners who completed all the three legs of their trilogy race last February 7 at Okada Manila in Pasay City.
The awards night recognized the finishers of the 2017 RUNRIO Trilogy Race’s three-leg series which has 21K, 32K and 42K distances. The premier organizer of running events in the country also gave special prizes to the fastest and oldest finishers in the race.
Heart to Finish
Jojie Dagaas emerged as the overall male top finisher, while Christabel Martes took the female finisher title. Both athletes are being sent to run in the prestigious Chicago marathon this year courtesy of RUNRIO.
All awardees were given a limited edition medal hanger which was presented when they were called on stage. RUNRIO President and CEO Coach Rio Dela Cruz and RUNRIO Events Managing Partner Andrew Neri presented the token to the awardees.
“The RUNRIO Trilogy Awards is our way of showing our appreciation to all those who participated and gave everything they’ve got fueled by their #HeartToFinsih strong,” said Neri.
The event also highlighted the presentation of RUNRIO’s PHP 500,000 donation to the Yes Pinoy Foundation. Founded in 2009, Yes Pinoy together with Taclob, creates emergency bags with the help of the Typhoon Yolanda survivors. The foundation aims to provide learner’s materials and emergency kits to students in vulnerable public schools, particularly those that are frequented by typhoons.
