Incoming: Run for Odyssey

Posted by on 27. August 2015

CDO Run for Odyssey is a run for a cause. The proceeds would go to the Odyssey Foundation, which feeds malnourished and undernourished kids.  Running the race help put food to a hungry tummy.  Another reason to run is that it’s in BGC. If you’ve been running for more than 3 years, you’d know that BGC has been the main running hub for runners back then and here’s a throwback to those days.  Expect a moderately challenging course as you navigate the climbs at Kalayaan Flyover, the long ascent at 5th Avenue and the rolling Lawton and Bayani Road terrain.  Run for Odyssey is happening on November 8, 2015 with 5K, 10K and 21K categories to choose from. Register Now!!!

CDO Run for Odyssey

The Run for Odyssey is an event organized by CDO Foodsphere, Inc., and has become a tradition of celebrating fun and good health. Run for Odyssey is a CDO way and expression of loving and caring for others. Proceeds of this exciting run convention go straight to the Odyssey Foundation, a non-profit organization created to formally continue providing individuals new hope into their lives by giving aid and assistance. Therefore, when you run for Odyssey you not only get up to the challenge of proving yourself in your chosen run category but you also help nourish the lives of thousands of needy children and families in the country.

CDO Foodsphere Inc. is the brand behind the run. Aside from the cause of Odyssey, the run is also a celebration of their 40th year.  That’s more than a generation worth of coming out with fresh and innovative food that not only is tasty but is healthy as well.  They are channeling that excellence in their product and manufacturing process to another healthy avenue, which is running.  Let’s celebrate CDO’s 40th year by joining the run.

There will be 5K, 10K and 21K categories

The event will be on November 8, 2015 with 5K, 10K and 21K category.  It’s gonna take us to the challenging Bonifacio Global City terrain.  BGC used to be the main hub for running events a few years ago and this one is a throwback to those times.  The thing I like about the BGC is the terrain.  There’s a climb at Kalayaan Flyover (Yes, even the 5K distance get to go uphill).  There’s the fast and flat Buendia area.  There’s the long climb from Rizal Drive and 5th Avenue and there’s the long rolling terrain of Lawton and Bayani Road.  That for me is a well distributed workload for the muscles groups as you get the calves working on the flats and you get the quads doing the work when you’re on the climb.

How about trying your luck out in a raffle with these prizes on the line?  CDO Run for Odyssey is not only a run for a cause but it’s one of the most generous run when it comes to prizes.  Get a chance to win a Go Pro Hero 4 Silver, Soleus GPS Watch, Chris Sports GCs, Hydration Belts and even power banks.  The prizes are not only high valued, they are very practical and can complement your day to day routine.  Run and you might be among the lucky ones to grab these prizes.

    Wow, RUN for Odyssey is for such a great cause. The number of malnourished/undernourished children is on the rise, events like these not only help address the issue but also raises awareness. I know for a fact that a lot of people don’t even know about it.

    Prizes to be given away are so cool! These are more reasons to join in the run. It will be interesting to run through Kalayaan Flyover not by car but by foot. 🙂

    aside from the interesting prizes, what makes this event even more interesting is the purpose of this run….I went over their FB page to see what kind of charity is the Odyssey Foundation and it is nice to know that they got Nutrition, education and livelihood programs..

    I love it when there is a fun run for a cause. Some of the activities are for corporations to get money for themselves so events like this is much appreciated.

    What a great cause to run for. The prizes are cool too, but it must be very rewarding to run for such a worthy and deserving organization.
