I received an e-mail invitation the other day from Vince Mendoza, Finishline honcho to their upcoming Neutrogena Run: Chase the Sun at The Fort this coming Sunday, May 16. I already registered in the 15k category of this race and will claim my race packet at the ROX next Monday. I particularly like the Finisher’s shirt they’d be handing out after the run although i wish they would also give a singlet on top of this.:-)
Here’s the press write up of the Neutrogena Run 2010:
Chase the Sun at the Neutrogena Run!
A true runner will never let the intense summer heat get in the way of a good workout. But let’s face it. It would be a lot safer for her skin if she had something to protect her against damaging UVA and UVB rays. On Sunday, May 16, 2010, 4000 runners will finally get the chance to run under the summer sun with maximum sun protection. The Neutrogena Chase the Sun Run in Fort Bonifacio is the first road race organized by a beauty brand. A tribute to the woman who can sport beautiful, summer skin and strut her stuff as an active runner, the Chase the Sun Run will give runners the chance to experience firsthand how Neutrogena takes care of their skin.
For all their sun protection matters, runners need only look for the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer product line. This line of lotions and moisturizers offers runners superior sun protection through the Neutrogena-patented Helioplex technology. While other sunblocks are only effective in blocking out UVB rays, Helioplex technology delivers photo-stable UV protection that blocks both burning UVB rays and cancer-causing UVA rays from penetrating the skin. The Ultra Sheer product line comes in two convenient variants: Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ and Waterlight Lotion SPF 50+ PA+++. Dry Touch Sunblock quickly gets absorbed into the skin, and its waterproof and non-pore clogging features are perfect for the active runner. Waterlight is an incredibly lightweight facial sun care product that is easy to spread, velvety, not greasy, and not shiny. At the Chase the Sun Run, all runners will get the opportunity to sample both Ultra Sheer products, and testify to the superior sun protection that only Neutrogena can provide.
Ready to face the heat, runners will follow the Filipino running icon, Coach Rio, as he and his team of experienced race organizers have taken the Chase the Sun Run to exciting new heights. Aside from the timer chip that every runner will receive, the race routes will also pass through new roads that previous races have never before gone through. Runners can register for the 3k, 5k, 10k, or 15k races at R.O.X. in Bonifacio High Street until May 9.
The symbol of beauty and an active lifestyle is the Bull Runner herself, Jaymie Pizarro, who will demonstrate that only Neutrogena Ultra Sheer can give runners the freedom to Chase the Sun, knowing that their skin is fully protected.
On Sunday, May 16 at Fort Bonifacio, get ready to Chase the Sun with Neutrogena!

In addition to the Chase the Sun singlet, runners can also look forward to a filled-to-the-brim Johnson & Johnson lootbag and an awesome finishers’ shirt made exclusively by Team Manila. Furthermore, cash prizes await the winners of each distance from the male and female categories. But the gifts don’t stop there! Upon finishing the run, participants, friends, and family members can spend the morning treating themselves to activities and games sponsored by participating Johnson & Johnson brands, Carefree, Modess, Listerine, Johnson’s Body Care, and of course, Neutrogena.
Registration for Neutrogena Run at ROX will be extended to May 12, 2010.
