Putting the FUN back in fun run: The Grand Fiesta Run 2010

4 Nov

I have a confession to make: I have a very inactive lifestyle. The only “exercise” that this feeble body of mine enjoys is when I head off to work and when I leave the office to go home. That’s it. Pathetic as it may seem, I was still able to lose weight by cutting off carbs starving myself.

But this unhealthy way of losing weight must stop, seriously.  That’s why starting November, I plan to start some simple (heh!) exercises toward a healthier pound-shedding routine 😉

One way to lose the darn weight is by joining Fun Runs like this one that Resorts World Manila is offering in line with their Grand Launch.

One of the highlights of the event is a 1K rat race that encourages runners to come in their weirdest and wildest costumes; from jazzed up office gear (minus the heels and leather shoes, of course!) to fiesta-inspired outfits. I suggest you go all out and let your creativity loose to have more chances of winning exciting prizes! The race has awards for the Best Dressed, Most Unique, Biggest Group/Company, and Wildest Costume.

And to top it all, rat race participants will also be receiving 1,000 free gaming credits in Resorts World Manila! You get to win some moolah in their posh casino and lose weight at the same time. Sounds like a plan 😀

For more intense runners, don’t worry as Grand Fiesta Run 2010 also features 3K, 5K, and 10K race categories in a new route in Newport City. Runners can select their finish chute and win different prizes such as shop, movie, spa, hotel, and cruise gift certificates! Participants can also join the raffle draw and sprint their way to a 3-day/2-night trip for four to Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore, with free tickets to Universal Studios. The lucky jetsetters will be flying to their destination aboard Resorts World Manila’s private jet.

The registration started last October 27; be sure to catch it before November 22 at the following outlets: Chris Sports in MOA, Glorietta, and SM Mega Mall; R.O.X Bonifacio High Street, and in Resorts World Manila. The registration fee is PhP650 for all race categories. The gun start is at:  6:00am for 10K, 6:05am for 5K, 6:10am for 3K, and 7:15am for 1K. Bring your families and friends on November 28 for one truly unforgettable fun run!
