Exceed yourself! This is the challenge given to all interested participants of the much-awaited Run United CDO 2016 Freedom Run.
Jointly organized by Circle Productions and ActiveHealth, Run United Freedom Run CDO aims to be THE running event of the year. It will be grand, hip and will even feature one very unique and exciting aspect come race day – which I will tell you more about below.
I was invited to the media briefing yesterday of Run United CDO 2016 and I must say, the excitement in the room over this running event was almost palpable. Cagayan de Oro’s top race organizer Circle Productions has teamed up with ActiveHealth, which is affiliated with Unilab (makers of Enervon HP, CarbGel, Enervon Activ and a whole lot of other health and wellness products).

Check out these items I received during the press briefing. That’s the race belt, ventilation bag and visor. Doesn’t the race belt look really cool?
Sir Francis also shows off one of the race shirts. Another one in red will soon be revealed to the public.
Now here’s the unique bit! For the very first time ever in the history of running events in Cagayan de Oro, Run United Freedom Run CDO 2016 will feature PACERS.
Pacers are voluntary runners who will assist, motivate and support Run United CDO runners so that they can exceed themselves! Pacers will help runners achieve their desired finish time. For instance, if your usual time to finish a 5K race is 30 minutes but you want to finish it within 20 minutes, a pacer can help you out. All you need to do is follow that pacer in order to cross the finish line within your desired time period.
Now that’s pretty cool and exciting, yes? I have a feeling the pacers will be a hit and may even be staples during races in CDO.
