Incoming: Egg Power Run Half Marathon #EggPowerRun

Posted by on 19. September 2014

“Some say that the best running form is your hands in a loose fist as if holding an egg.  It releases the tightness in the hand and allows the upper body to relax and more comfortable to running.  This theory gets tested in the #EggPowerRun Half Marathon happening on January 11, 2015 at Bonifacio Global City.”

Are you Eggxited?

Run in a tight fist and it keeps your other body tight and tense.  Keeping your hand in loose fist as if you’re holding an egg, would loosen up your upper body too.  That concept will be tested when running literally gets to hold an actual egg in the race until they finish the race.  That’s what makes this race unique.

As a challenge, all runners will be given raw egg at the Start Line. Each runner must keep their egg from breaking. Upon reaching the Finish Line, runners with whole egg will get more eggs to take home!  Additional 3 eggs for 3km finishers, 6 eggs for 5km, 9 eggs for 10km, and a dozen for the half marathoners will be given.  Runners who opt not to bring their eggs to the Finish Line may leave the eggs at the nearest water stations.  No whole egg at the finish line, no additional eggs will be given.

The Egg Power Run Half Marathon is brought to you by the Philippine Egg Board Association with 3km, 5km, 10km, and 21km categories for the runners. The race would be on January 11, 2015 at Bonifacio Global City.  Since there will be the key Marathon Races in February in the Condura Skyway Marathon and The Bull Runner Dream Marathon, this would be an excellent build up race for Marathoners.  Of course, this is also an event for newbies, recreational runners or to those just wanting to start an active lifestyle.  Finishers medals will be given to 10km and 21km Finishers, while finisher shirts will be given to 21km category.

This event aims to promote the goodness of egg and its benefits being high in protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.
