Chevy-New Balance Power Run 2011 Now Set!

This race is what many are waiting for! I’m happy to report to you that the New Balance (NB) Power Run is slated for November 6, 2011 at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Now dubbed as the Chevrolet-New Balance Power Run, this race will feature a 5k, 10k and its signature distance of 25k which would give half-marathon runners the extra push to boost their training for their year-end marathon goals. It aims to attract a total of 10,000 runners.

For this event, Chevrolet will give away one (1) Chevrolet Cruze to a lucky finisher! All you have to do is successfully register and finish the Power race and you are automatically a contender to bring home the Cruze! How’s that for a raffle prize?

I still can’t forget the first NB race I joined back in 2008 at Clark in Pampanga and it was held in a rustic but scenic route near the Mimosa Resort that had rolling hills, tree-lined, well paved roads. The following year, the race was held after the onslaught of typhoon Ondoy and although NB was very visible in supporting other races, it didn’t have the Power Run last year.

One obvious change this year is that this race will no longer be organized by X-tribe. Instead, it’s now under the helm of Run Rio, headed by Coach Rio and his Team.

I was able to attend their Press launching yesterday at Rockwell and here are some details discussed during the event:
