MGM Productions Present: DBB Mountain Rockstar Trail Run

MGM Productions takes you back to the most awaited trail run in Tanay, Rizal, the DBB Mountain Rockstar in 3 different distances. The route traces to beautiful trails through stunning mountain of clouds backdrops, plenty of fresh air and water, friendly marshals and a welcoming race atmosphere for everyone.

The distances include a 50km ultra distance which gets you to three (3) mountains – Mt. Batolusong, Mt. Maynoba & Mt. Cayabu which organizers call the MGM Trio. The race will also have the shorter distances, the sweet 12km and exhilarating 25km categories.

Each distance will take you to some magnificent landscapes with long-winding ascents, cloud-swept mountain tops that will put a smile on your face. There will be river crossings, run through farm-fringed valleys, weave through towering forest trees and sweep along flowing trails beside rivers, creeks, many water falls and mountain lookouts.

Hall cum registration area is located 30 meters from the main road and just before the covered court. From Batangasan, the Brgy. Hall is more or less 4 kms in distance.

Early morning travel from Cubao to Brgy. San Andres is 1 hour 45 minutes.

Run For Ur Future: August 28, 2016 at MOA (Manila Leg)

Saving and managing your finances now is a major part of building a better life for the future. You may not be able to implement it to the fullest extent right now, but you should know about it and you may be surprised by what it can do for you, and what you can accomplish, if you start now.

When we say “savings”, it is any money you put away for the future, a habit that we should get into while young! Building a culture of saving money while nourishing our careers will allow you to generate funds that will sustain you for the short term and up to your retirement age. Adequate savings gives you the power to withstand an unexpected expense, help you weather financial hardships such as sickness or unemployment, achieve a financial goal like home ownership, and provide funds for your golden years when you retire.

It is through this race that awareness has to be instilled through health and fitness in a sport like running. Race is for the benefit of World Vision and Tahanan ng Pagmamahal.
