Around 4,500 runners joined the 5-kilometer and 10-kilometer marathons of the 8th Robinsons Supermarket Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run on July 5 at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Among the participants are triathlete Nikko Huelgas, who won the gold medal in the 28th Southeast Asian Games in Singapore, Philippines Volcanoes captain Jake Letts as well as celebrities James Reid and Jessy Mendiola.
The race is in line with Robinsons Supermarket’s commitment to helping more Filipinos make healthier choices by supplying their health and wellness needs.
“While eating healthy is at the core of a healthy life, we cannot discount the immutable contribution of exercise. And running is always better when done with a partner hence, the Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy run,” said Robinsons Supermarket General Manager Jody Gadia.
The top pair finishers of the 5K marathon received a trip for two to Coron, Palawan while the winners of the 10K race got a trip for two to Yangon, Myanmar. The second to fifth finishers received Robinsons gift certificates as consolation prizes.
