Downpour Did Not Stop Robinsons Supermarket 11th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run from Pushing Through!

Sometimes, we can only hope for the best. And in case it doesn’t happen, we can just make the best out of the situation.

With an upcoming typhoon towards the country, this is what the organizers of the Robinsons Supermarket 11th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run did as rain started to pour down past 5am, a few minutes before the start of the run.

But the downpour did not stop the 11th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run kick-off at the parade grounds of Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City with different types of running pairs-parents and kids, siblings, lolos and their apos, loved ones, officemates, best friends, even neighbors joining  the races.

Buddies ran towards a healthy lifestyle a bit before 6am when the rains slowed down. Due to limited time and logistics, both the 5K and 10K runners were sent off at the same time and combined as one run.

But of course, those who opted not to brave the rain were given the option to freelybdo so. They were still able to get their finisher reward of a big shopping bag with groceries at the claiming stations.

We are happy to provide an opportunity for people to start their wellness journey in a fun and one-of-a-kind event with their partners. After all, getting fit and choosing the healthier lifestyle is more worthwhile when shared with a buddy,” said Jody Gadia, Robinsons Supermarket general manager.

After crossing the finish line with their buddies and celebrating fitness in a fun, wet, and exciting way, most of the participants also enjoyed exciting activity booths and took home big grocery loot bags that have been the trademark of the Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run through the years. It contained freebies from Nestle, Johnson & Johnson, Wyeth Nutrition, Abbott Nutrition, Philusa, Organique ACAI, Fonterra and Unilab.

They say it is not how you finish a race but how you ran it that makes all the difference. Today was a testament to that. The elements of what a run should be were in place – race markers, timing clocks, arch, race marshalls, sponsors and participants were in place. What we had no control of was the weather. And this was probably one of the miracles today: People ran or walked with or without umbrellas. There were no times to beat. For some, the rain even made it more fun or refreshing. We saw people still smiling, walking, running or going through the booths. And this is why we do what we do. For moments like these,” shares Ms. Aja Totanes, Robinsons Supermarket Marketing Manager.

The fun run is in line with Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness commitment to continuously encourage more people to choose and live healthier lifestyles. Check out this story when they launched the recent Wellness Festival 2018!
