Running or fun run has become a popular form of physical activity in the country today. It’s an appealing exercise because it doesn’t cost a lot to take part and you can run at any time that suits you. Some runners choose to participate in fun runs, athletics races or marathons.

Regular running/ jogging offers many health benefits. Joining fun runs regularly can:

1.  Help to build strong bones, as it is a weight bearing exercise

2.  Strengthen muscles

3.  Improve cardiovascular fitness

4.  Burn plenty of calories

5.  Help maintain a healthy weight

Running and keeping healthy can be twice the fun when you have a running buddy. Incidentally, pairs of race buddies crossed the finish line in Robinsons Supermarket’s 7th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run held this morning at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

Now on its 7th year, the Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run continues to encourage people to engage in healthier activities, in line with the supermarket’s I Love Wellness campaign. The annual run, which aims to promote the benefits of staying in shape, requires participants to finish the race with a partner.

“We organize the Fit & Fun Buddy Run every year not only to promote health and wellness but also to strengthen the bond for family and friends,” said Jody Gadia, Robinsons Supermarket general manager.

The fun run’s 5K and 10K events were attended by around 4,500 recreational runners, including the members of the national rugby team, the Philippine Volcanoes, and other celebrities.

At the end of the run, top pair finishers received prizes from Robinsons Supermarket officials. 5K winners won a trip to Coron, Palawan while 10k winners bagged a trip for two to Phuket, Thailand. 2nd to 5th place finishers received Robinsons Gift Certificates as consolation prizes. Special awards and gift packs were also given by event sponsors Nestle and Unilever to outstanding race buddies. All participants also took home a Robinsons Supermarket I Love Wellness bag filled with goodies from sponsors.
