Beat that extra mile at the Gatorade 11.22

4:44:00 AM

This coming November 27, 2016, runners from all over the country are invited to be part of the Gatorade Run 11.22. The world's number one sports drink has partnered with Run Rio for its second year which will be held at SM Mall of Asia Pasay City with two categories, 11km and 22km.

Last year's Gatorade Run, more than 6,000 runners registered and they featured different stations/booths such as hydration stations where runners can get their pre-race hydration drinks, a post-run hydration test area where runners instantly learned about their hydration status and a warm-up area where free sessions of full-on warm up activity are held before and after the run. During the run, Gatorade Ambassadors Jeron Teng, Jaja Santiago, Chris Banchero, Jet Manuel and Ara Galang were present to cheer and show support to all runners.

This time, they promise that it will be more exciting while still focusing on the importance of the pre and post-run hydration. According to Pepsico Marketing Manager for Hydration Tony Atayde, "Gatorade is a global leader in sports performance and we'll definitely bring that expertise to the run. Learning the benefits of proper hydration is crucial for runners and e look forward to reinforcing that message through the Gatorade Run. We're excited to show runners how, whether in sports hydration or a unique consumer experience, NOTHING BEATS GATORADE!"

This is my second time to participate in a run and my first was a 3km category. I'm a bit scared that I may not be able to finish the 11km run but I'll make sure to prepare my body's stamina and strength through exercise, diet and practice runs. Definitely a challenging run for me but with Gatorade, I'm pretty sure that I will be able to beat that extra mile. See you there!
