Smart’s “Live More Run ” [January 19, 2013 – NUVALI]


What are your resolutions for the new year? To be fit and healthy? Try new things perhaps? Organize more bonding activities with your family and friends? You can do all these and more at the Live More Run brought to you by wireless services provider Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart).

The Live More Run, happening on January 19, 3PM to 8PM at Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna promises to help you start the year right through a unique fun-filled event designed for runners of all ages – whether beginner or veteran.

“The Live More Run is a great way to kick-off your 2013 on a positive note,” said Epok Quimpo, manager for Smart Sports. “This is our way of bringing people together to celebrate new beginnings and hope for a greater year. It’s something worth trying for we only live once.”

Unlike regular running events, the Live More Run is an untimed 5K parade which promises to be “an explosion of color and happiness” and will end in “one epic party.” For every kilometer, there will be a color station where runners will be showered with colored powder which will be mixed with other colors as they go along with the race.

Race kits include sachets of more colored powder which will be used by the runners in the post-run powder toss celebration. This will lead to a night concert followed by the lighted balloon flying event.

“Aside from having fun and having a better you, the Live More run also allows you to help sports development in the country,” said Quimpo. “Proceeds of the running event will go to the MVP Sports Foundation which helps grassroots and elite sports programs and associations. By joining the Live More Run and its activities, you’re helping shape future Filipino sports champions.”
