Gatorade Run is Back on its 2nd Year!

Monday, September 19, 2016


The world’s number one sports drink, in partnership with Runrio, will once again hit the road for the second year of the Gatorade Run

This time, it will be held on November 27, 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The run will have two distances—11K and 22K. 

More than 6,000 runners registered in last year’s run which featured hydration stations where participants got 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 were available for those who wanted a full-on warm up activity before and after the run. 

Gatorade ambassadors Jeron Teng, Jaja Santiago, Chris Banchero, Jett Manuel and Ara Galang were among those who were present to support the runners.

This year’s run promises to be more exciting, while still focusing on the importance of pre- and post-run hydration. Pepsico Marketing Manager for Hydration Tony Atayde said, “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 we 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.” 

Many surprises were unveiled during the Gatorade Run media launch held at F1 Hotel, Bonifacio Global City. First, a different race map with Gil Puyat Ave. serving as the main road for the 22K run and the CCP Complex serving as the main area for the 11K run. Another thing is that 22K finishers will get a medal each alongside the finisher shirts as per request by the runners.
