Run United Philippine Marathon (RUPM), the third and last leg of the RunRio Trilogy, was even more in demand than its inaugural run last year.
On its second year, RUPM concluded on October 6. It featured four race categories: Ceelin 500m, Hydrite 10km, Alaxan FR 21km and Enervon Activ 42km.
“RUPM is also much-awaited as it wraps up our run races for the year. The runners are also excited to finally complete their United medal for Run United 1, 2 and RUPM,” said Alex Panlilio, Head of Unilab Active Health (ULAH).
The completed United medal from the 2013 Run United Trilogy series (21-21-21, 21-32-21, 21-32-42) fits together with the RUPM finisher’s medal. According to Unilab Active Health, securing all these medals is a testament of the runners’ commitment to continuously exceed themselves in the field of running.
According to RunRio’s Rio dela Cruz, “We have been offering the 42K category for only two years and we are happy that we have established a good reputation. RUPM has its own following now. It has become the last big run race for most runners for the year. We are looking forward to celebrating yet another successful running year with our loyal participants.”
RunRio held a special awards’ night for participants who registered and finished the 21km category in Run United 1, 32km category in Run United 2, as well as the 42km category in RUPM. Awards were given to the top three overall winners (women and men) in all distance categories.
Besides gifts and certificates from Unilab and other sponsors, the top three male and female RUPM winners received cash prizes: for 10km winners, (P4,000/P5,000/P6,000) and for 21km winners (P6,500/P7,500/8,500). There will be two categories for the 42km categories, Filipinos and Non-Filipinos. The top three winners in each category will get P25,000/P18,000/P12,000 respectively.
