Everyone is invited to lace up and run for a greener tomorrow with the staging of Green Run at Vermosa in Imus, Cavite, Philippines on July 3, 2022 It will be a one-day, multi-level run within its 750-hectare property that is fast gaining fame as the new sports and fitness hub down south.
Proceeds of the Green Run will go to Haribon Foundation’s Adopt-a-Seedling Program to build a greener tomorrow. Those interested to join the event may go to ayalaland.myruntime.com to register.
Consisting of 21K, 10K, 5K and 3K distance categories, the Green Run is targeting elite athletes, fun runners, fitness enthusiasts, athletes in training, weekend athletes, families and just about anyone who is eager to run. Various running routes winding through wide open spaces and abundant greenery punctuated with wide pedestrian walkways, bicycle and jogging lanes, and enhanced greenways will make this Run a truly pleasant experience.
Vermosa has partnered with the running, fitness and multisport event organizer Pinoy Fitness to conduct the Green Run. A beautiful medal created by artist Cynthia Bauzon-Arre of Forest Foundation Philippines will be among the perks that runners will get for their participation.
An Ayala Land Estate, Vermosa is a modern, suburban community that promotes healthy and active living. Its Ayala Vermosa Sports Hub, a state-of-the-art and professionally managed sports facility that has already hosted various national and international sports events, will be the center of Green Run activities for registration and information.
The sports hub features a Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA) standard Olympic size swimming pool, a warm up pool, an International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF) standard 400m track oval, field with natural tiff grass and an athletes lounge. Its gym is operated by Sante Fitness Lab, a premier training ground for amateur and professional athletes.
“As more places begin to reopen, we can now enjoy the outdoors with more activities to engage in,” Vermosa Estate head Jay Teodoro, a sports and fitness enthusiast himself, said. “I personally advocate sports and spending time outdoors as it helps boost physical and mental health. Physical activities, like running, provide a change of scenery and help reduce stress.”
“This is why we organized the Vermosa Green Run,” Teodoro continued. “We want people to rediscover their surroundings, appreciate nature, enjoy the fresh air and boost their health. With an abundance of wide-open spaces and the state-of-the-art sports facilities at Vermosa Sports Hub, Vermosa provides one of the best venues to engage in physical activities.”
