Ayala hosts 4th season of Runnr Academy-A A +A
Thursday, October 25, 2012
HEAVY rains welcomed the opening of the fourth leg of the Runnr Academy last Wednesday night at Ayala Active Zone.
The academy is a series of free running clinics held by Runnr in cooperation with Ayala Center Cebu every Wednesday for new and advanced runners.
And just when the runners were excited to do a five-kilometer run around Cebu Business Park, program director Raffy Osumo had to suspend it because of the downpour.
“The road was wet and I don’t want to risk the runners getting injured which can compromise their joining future races,” said Osumo.
Lawyer and ultra marathoner Haide Acuña was one of the speakers during the session and she shared her experience on how she started with running as well as its development through the years.
Prycegas, organizers of the upcoming Prycegas International Marathon on Dec. 2 in Cagayan de Oro, will be the major partner of the Runnr Academy and will raffle off three Super Kalans every session. The highlight will be on the last session on Nov. 28 where they will raffle one slot in the 42K and four slots in the 21K and 5K.
