This is going to be one great news for runners living in the south, particularly those from Alabang, Muntinlupa; Sucat in Paranaque; San Pedro, Laguna, Las Pinas City, Zapote and other outlying towns within the area. RUNNR Running store has just opened its doors at the Alabang Town Center (ATC) to cater the needs of these runners living near the area which saves them time from going further north at their store in The Fort, Taguig City.
Mr. Toby Claudio, RUNNR Founder and President located his store at the Garden Wing of ATC. It’s in a very good location, well within an affluent residential area (Ayala Alabang) and Mr. Claudio expects about 30 to 50% of business will be from standard mall traffic but will continue to be a destination store for runners looking for more specialized shoes and accessories.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to their launching last week and their store opening was marked by a running clinic they themselves organized with lectures coming from Takbo.ph head, Jinoe Gavan and a lecture on running technique by US-certified running coach Jay Valencia.
With shops firmly established at their Bonifacio High Street Main Branch, Trinoma and Ayala Center in Cebu which i had recently visited, RUNNR Alabang will continue to provide outstanding service and merchandize knowledge, the works in technical clothing and accessories and a hard to beat shoe selection at competitive prices.
Clearly, this new shop in Alabang Town Center is worth a run to the mall!
RUNNR INVADES ALABANG TOWN CENTER
THE footrace fever in the country remains high as all roads lead to the south of the metro with RUNNR formally opening its doors in Alabang Town Center on Saturday, March 3, 2012.
RUNNR, the country’s first world-class running specialty store, and Ayala Mall’s Store of the Year in 2010, brings state-of-the-art technology and a complete selection of running brands to the premier business and residential area south of Manila, which has recently become the new favorite venue for running and other endurance events.
The revolutionary Footworx system –a combination of Footprint Analysis, High-speed Video Gait Analysis and Custom Insole Moulding services–has benefited a huge number of athletes since RUNNR brought the technology to the Philippines three years ago. Now with the new RUNNR at ATC, more running enthusiasts will get the help they need for improved performance and injury prevention.
The custom-fitting system helps runners identify the best shoe to match their foot type and stride, which helps them run longer and more comfortably. RUNNR carries several topnotch brands including Newton shoes–the choice of some of the world’s best triathletes–and CW-X compression wear.
RUNNR also offers other world-class brands such as Brooks, Adidas, Nike, Vibram Five Fingers, and New Balance. All the guesswork in picking and fitting the proper shoes are eliminated by the Footworx system and RUNNR’s highly-trained staff. Another huge plus is that everything that a runner needs, from sophisticated heart rate monitors to hydration equipment, are available at all RUNNR outlets.
“We want to inspire people to get into the running lifestyle by helping them find the right gear and teaching them the basics that will help them become better runners.” RUNNR is staffed by dedicated and skilled staffs who are runners themselves. They can help find the right shoe for each person’s specific Footype and even teach proper running form and training methods. Also available at RUNNR are world-class running gear and accessories from Polar, Smith Optics, Fuelbelt, Nathan, GU, CEP, Spenco, and Equipe.
The formal launch of RUNNR ATC was highlighted by an inspirational talk from Jineo Gavan of takbo.ph and a lecture on running technique by US-certified running coach Jay Valencia. Also present at the event were radio and television host Sam YG, actor JC De Vera, RUNNR Founder and President Toby Claudio and COO Jojo Claudio.
This March, RUNNR offers a special P1000 pesos off on footwear priced P4,995 and above when donating running singlets of any brand and from any fun run to RUNNR stores at Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio High Street, Trinoma, Ayala Center Cebu, and RUNNR corners in Toby’s Arena stores in Shangri-la Plaza, SM Mall of Asia and Abreeza Davao.
Donated running singlets, which will be given to the communities of Smokey Mountain, should be in good running condition. The RUNNR Alabang Town Center launch is presented by RUNNR and Alabang Town Center in cooperation with Newton, Brooks, CW-X, Smith Optics, Moving Comfort, Nike, Adidas, New Balance, and Zoot.
The newly opened RUNNR is located at the second level of The Garden in Alabang Town Center. For more on running and world-class running gear, visit www.runnr.com.ph, facebookcom/RUNNRPhils or newtonrunning.com or follow RUNNR on twitter.com/RUNNRStore.
