A predominantly cobblestone course probably isn't the most ideal setting for a race, what more if it gets wet and slippery due to rain?
That was exactly what members of adidas Runners Manila (aRM) had to go through at the recent Night Mile Race Manila in Intramuros, Manila. Just when the starting pistol for the collective relay was about to be fired, it started pouring in the historic walled city.
Good thing the new adidas Pulseboost HD, which was launched during the event, is made for such rigorous conditions. After a slight delay, the Night Mile Race Manila was underway.
The teams of four had to run a total distance of five miles, with three members covering a mile each and the fourth finishing the last two. The relay was divided in two categories: Open for beginner and intermediate runners, and Elite, for intermediate to advanced speedsters.
“The Night Mile Race is a great way for our runners to experience the new innovation in boost technology as well as to celebrate the anniversary of adidas Runners Manila. We are very proud of what the team has achieved in just the past two years — a highly engaged Facebook group with thousands of members who have, in one way or another, worked on their running goals with aRM”, said Jen Dacasin, adidas Brand Communication and Sports Manager.
Winners were awarded with medals and their own adidas Pulseboost HD pairs at Batala Bar during the post-race celebration.
The first silhouette to offer the BOOST HD is the result of a collaboration among urban runners from New York, Paris, and Berlin. Engineered for more stability with the same unrivalled energy return and comfort, it allows runners to "conquer every corner, every curb, and every crack" with the performance trio of Boost HD, Continental Adaptive Traxion, Adapt Knit.
The adidas Pulseboost HD is already available in stores and on adidas.com.ph/pulseboost for P6500.
