Since last year, starting with the Run for Wellness race that this company has sponsored, Unilab has been actively promoting fitness and health activities for the entire family.
With Unilab ActiveHealth, they are coming up with two more activities these coming months. These are biking and triathlon. We were fortunate to have been given the chance to be part of the Unilab ActiveHealth Bloggers meet at Casa Armas Podium.
Some of the industry players (Coach Rio, etc.) and Unilab representatives gave a short briefing on each of the products.
Unilab announced that the Bike United will kick off at McKinley hill this October 16. The event will start at the Venice Piazza. The event will be attended by bikers of different skill levels competing in different events. Unilab is seeing at least 1300 participants. They have already closed the registration though for the events since they have achieved their target number of participants. If you want to watch this bike event, these are the four different biking activities/competitions:
The 20Km Sunset Fun Ride shall be joined by different bikers of different skill levels. This is the first Sunset Fun Ride ever to hit Manila and it will, of course, start at McKinley Hill. It will pass through roads exclusive to the Philippine Army Camp. The guides for this event will be the Firefly Brigade. Safety and security was thought of since minors (18 years old and below) who registered to join should at least have a parent or guardian with them. Target number of participants for this event is at 900 people.
Unilab also introduces this 4.2Km Alaxan FR Road Criterium, which is a 30 min. (42Km per loop) road race. This is a nice competition to watch as the speed of the 300 bikers will excite you!
The third event is the I-ON Dual Stunt and this event are for serious mountain bikers who would want a chance to ride on I-ON Dual Stunt Tracks. This is a specially-designed parallel slalom course that will be located beside the Unilab ActiveHealth Village.
For parents who want to teach their kids how to ride a bike, Unilab presents the Ceelin Kiddie Bike Clinic. This activity will be open for kids aged 7 – 12 years old, in order to teach them basic skills such as: Basic Riding Position, Balancing, Sit & Pedal, Stand & Coast, Turning & Braking, Shifting, Uphill & Downhill, Small lifts, and Moderate lifts. This will be located inside the Active Kids Zone of the Unilab ActiveHealth Village. It will start at 3:30PM.
Tri United will be held on November 13, 2010 which will be in Subic (Whiterock Beach Resort, Zambales). This Triathlon will be a 2km Swim, 91km Bike and 20Km Run event. Unilab Activehealth will accept 250 individual participants and 50 relay teams only. Children ages 6 to 12 years old can also join the Tri Kids Swim and Run Clinic. In this sessions, the children will be taught how to properly race in a triathlon event. It will give them an idea on what triathlon is and why their parents are into it and after the lessons, there will be a race simulation where the kids can experience what a triathlon is. Unilab ActiveHealth is opening this to 50 children only, plus the parent or guardian must be a participant of the main event for the kid to qualify.
