Last February, I heard that adidas launched their latest running shoes into the local market, and it’s called “adidas Energy Boost“. I have read good reviews of this running shoes and I hope I can have one of those before the adidas King of the Road run on July 7, 2013.
Oh yes! adidas is back with its annual King of The Road (KOTR) which is one of the most anticipated races across Southeast Asia.
adidas King of the Road (KOTR) 2013 Philippines
July 7, 2013
Bonifacio Global City
16.8K – PHP 1,300
10K – PHP 1,100
10K (Students’ Race) – PHP 800 (needs to present valid ID’s)
This year, adidas is pushing the limits for KOTR to be even bigger than before as it opens a new category exclusively for students 25 years old and below. The 10K Relay for Students is set specifically to encourage the youth to get into a healthy, active lifestyle and to give them a chance to represent their alma mater. Students need to team up in pairs – one male and one female – with each running 5K to complete the total 10K distance. Winners don’t just get individual cash prizes; they will also win prizes for their schools.
“adidas has always been an advocate of health and wellness through sports. The King of the Road is a testament to that fact,” said Jason Gervasio, Brand Communications and Sports Marketing Manager of adidas Philippines. “The new School Championship category aims not only to promote fitness, but also to inspire teamwork and pride as students are given the chance to be ambassadors of their respective campuses.”
Apart from the School Championship category, the race will include distances of 10K for the general public and 16.8K with Open and Closed categories. The Closed category is strictly for Filipinos while the Open category is for all nationalities.
The top male and female winners from the 16.8K Closed category will be hailed as the Philippines’ King and Queen of the Road and will represent the Philippines in the KOTR Southeast Asia Championship in Malaysia. Isn’t that something worth training for?

I’ve never been in any running event but I am not giving up home that I can still join one soon! This one, I think will be another great event soon.
It is one of my goals to join at least one running event. I hope before the year ends.
gusto ko ulit sumali sa mga FUN RUNS. Kasi active ako nung college pa ako, pero ngayon, di na ako masyado nakakasali 🙁 ADIDAS has been true to its words talaga, kaya sana, marami ang sasali pag may ganyang event to raise awareness:)

This surely would be a great event. Hoping that I can shape up and join.
