Media Launch: Gatorade Run Returns with More Exciting Surprises #NothingBeatsGatorade

It's great to be back! Yours truly Runner Rocky for the second time around took part in the second installment of the Gatorade Run!

Gatorade, the most-loved energy drink of the athletes which is always present in almost all of our running events spearheads again their very own run, the Gatorade Run 2016. 

On the night of September 15, 2016, a media launch for the said running event was held in the F1 Hotel, BGC Taguig. Exciting details were announced during the launch.

Standing Tough Against All Odds. 'Cause Just Like Gatorade, Nothing Beats Runner Rocky!

Runner Rocky Took Part in the Second Gatorade Run for the Second Time Around!

The world’s number one sports drink, in partnership with Runrio, will once again hit the road for the second year of the Gatorade Run. 

It will be held on November 27, 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The run will have two distances—11K and 22K. 

More than 6,000 runners registered in last year’s run which featured hydration stations where participants got pre-race hydration drinks, a post-run hydration test area where runners instantly learned about their hydration status, and a warm-up area where free sessions were available for those who wanted a full-on warm up activity before and after the run. Gatorade ambassadors Jeron Teng, Jaja Santiago, Chris Banchero, Jett Manuel and Ara Galang were among those who were present to support the runners.

This year’s run promises to be more exciting, while still focusing on the importance of pre- and post-run hydration. Pepsico Marketing Manager for Hydration Tony Atayde said, “Gatorade is a global leader in sports performance and we’ll definitely bring that expertise to the run. Learning the benefits of proper hydration is crucial for runners and we look forward to reinforcing that message through the Gatorade Run.  We’re excited to show runners how, whether in sports hydration or a unique consumer experience, NOTHING BEATS GATORADE.”
