WITH the slogan “Exceed yourself!” UNILAB Active Health (ULAH) has released its much-anticipated calendar of events for 2014.
ULAH, which stages some of the most popular races in the country, has put together a year-round lineup of events developed with input from experts within the swim, bike, and run community to cater precisely to athletes who "want to create a better version of themselves."
ULAH said it “continues to challenge everyone to create a better version of themselves. One may choose to upgrade to longer distances, or establish new personal records. Better training, better gear, better nutrition, and better races, will all lead to achieving a better you.”
The latest addition to the Tri United Series is a new long distance category: a 1.9km swim, 90km bike, and 21km run. The distance offers a new challenge for triathletes tackling the Tri United on top of the sprint, standard (1.5km-40km-10km), and triking (2km-60km-15km) distances of next year’s series.
With the back-to -back success of the annual Active Health Duathlon, the run-bike-run event will still run its annual race at the SCTEX in Pampanga with a 6km-50km-4km distance to go with a separate cycling event scheduled in the second and third quarters of 2014.
Experienced runners hoping to complete the United Medal can train their way up to a full 42.195km distance in Run United Philippine Marathon. The Run United (RU) series will remain focused on providing long distance categories: RU1 with 5km, 10km, and 21km and RU2 with 10km, 21km, and 32km categories.
The Bull Runner Dream Marathon, the first and only marathon in the world that caters to first- or second-time marathoners, will continue with its extensive five-month program leading to race day.
The race has become so popular that Runners World Philippines has recognized the Unilab-sponsored event as among the Top 10 Marathons in the country in 2012.
Further announcements on event details, registration dates, and additional events/training programs within the 2014 UNILAB Active Health calendar will be provided on its website, www.unilabactivehealth.com and official Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/UnilabActiveHealth.
