ROX Outdoor Festival’s “Get Outside” A Success!

Great to know that the ROX Outdoor Festival 2015, a week-end sports festival held last April 18 and 19, 2015 was a resounding success!
This outdoor festival was aimed at promoting outdoor adventure sports and is a showcase for the hardcore as well as new-comers to take part in various adventurous sports while an equally good opportunity to learn more on the ins and outs of  having an enjoyable experience outdoors.
This event hosted a bouldering competition and a bike track competition. Apart from these, the festival also hosted fun, recreational activities where one can indulge in many challenges like the Pump Up the Track Challenge, Mountain Athletics Challenge, Trying Stuff Challenge, Outrun the Road Challenge, Strider’s competition for kids, and other competitions.

Adventure’s doors are officially open.
R.O.X. celebrated the best of the outdoors with the R.O.X. Outdoor Festival, held from April 18 to 19, 2015 at Bonifacio High Street. Attended by outdoor enthusiasts and converts of all kind, this two- day event marked the culmination of R.O.X.’s Get Outside campaign, which encouraged people to turn to a life of non-stop adventure.

Competitions, games, challenges, booths, shows, and workshops at the event kept excitement at a permanent high, as participating outdoor brands and organizations introduced people everything the outdoors had to offer.
One of the event’s big features was the R.O.X. Zero Gravity Bouldering Competition, sponsored by premier wall-climbing group PowerUp in partnership with the Sport Climbing Association of the Philippines, Inc. (SCAPI), where bouldering champions from all over the country fought for the top title and a round-trip airfare for two to Kota Kinabalu by Cebu Pacific Air.
A more grueling kind of challenge met participants of Mountain Hardwear’s Last Man Standing competition, staged on the first day of the festival. Fourteen hardy participants fought to stay on each of their 3-foot columns for nearly five hours as they endured various physical challenges on top of the heat of high summer. The winner took home the complete outdoor treatment: an all-expense paid trip to Coron, Palawan courtesy of Cebu Pacific Air and The Funny Lion Inn plus a complete set of gear by Mountain Hardwear.
Event-goers also proved eager to take on the rest of the festival’s activities, including Fox’s Pump Up the Track Challenge, The North Face’s Mountain Athletics Challenge, Columbia’s Trying Stuff Challenge, Salomon’s Outrun the Road Challenge, Strider’s competition for kids, and other high-octane pursuits.
For people new to the outdoors, the event also offered opportunities for them to get started. Various outdoor brands, service providers, groups, and communities packed Bonifacio High Street with booths for people to jumpstart their adventure.
Those interested in niche outdoor experiences found sound advice from the event’s talks and workshops, such as Liliane Cobiao’s introduction to traveling around the world, Tamara Benitez and
Mike Eijansantos’ guide to filming the outdoors, Carla Grino’s lecture on exploring the outdoors with your kid, and other highly useful topics by outdoor professionals.
Come evening, the festival switched on a more entertaining and relaxed vibe with performances by Lucille and Indio I at the amphitheater and big screen film viewings for families and groups of friends sprawled on the grass.
Without actually taking people up mountains, across open seas, or into a long and winding trail in the wild, the R.O.X. Outdoor Festival proved that the road to adventure is easy to find. It only takes a brave heart and a desire to Get Outside.
