Online Registration begins on October 12 while In Store Registration begins on October 19.

Sunpiology 2015

Piolo discusses the Sunpiology 2015 race.

7 years, that’s how long the SunPIOLOgy tradition has been and each year, Sun life and Piolo offers a different race experience for the runners to enjoy.  It’s also been supporting numerous causes over the years.  Sunpiology 2015 would have health and education as their main advocacy this year with the beneficiaries being the Institute of Studies on Diabetes Foundation, Inc (ISDFI), Lingkod Kapamilya and Hebreo Foundation.   Diabetes takes center stage as the race won’t be your ordinary run as they’ve added some diabetic obstacles like maze, zigzag of soda can, candy crawl and choco bars hurdles. The obstacles would be in the form of food groups that can lead to diabetes to remind the runners on proper nutrition.  There’ll be a kick2give area before you cross the finish line in form of body bags with the word diabetes you can literally kick.  Sunlife would be matching those foot strikes with a donation to ISDFI.

Riza Mantarng, President and CEO of Sun Life Financials

“Together with other Sun Life territories, we are concerned about the widespread prevalence of diabetes, especially here in the Philippines.  We actually belong to the top 15 countries where diabetes is more rampant. So for this year, we will raise funds for both health and education – two advocacies that have always been very close to our values as a company,” said Sun Life President and CEO Riza Mataring.

Coach Rio Dela Cruz of Runrio discusses the race details.

The event is happening on November 28, 2015 with a fresh new route of McKinley West of Megaworld Properties in Fort Bonifacio.  McKinley hill is one of my favorite routes because of its hilly terrain.  The race would both be featuring the new McKinley West area and the challenging McKinley Hill area. The race would be for all ages. Sunpiology is introducing a new category called Golden Kilometer or GK, which is a 1 kilometer distance that can be enjoyed by thove in their 50s and up.  There will be a 500 meter dash for kids as well as 3K, 5K and 10K distances for all.

With Running Icons, Coach Rio Dela Cruz and The Bull Runner, Jaymie Pizarro, who’s also now Sunlife’s fitness consultant,

Since it started in 2009, the SunPiology Run has already raised millions of pesos for education and social services.  Every year, the event is made even brighter by the presence of Star Magic’s crowd-drawers including Bea Alonzo, Kim Chiu, Maja Salvador, Paulo Avelino, Matteo Guidicelli, Xian Lim, Liza Soberano, Enrique Gil, Ejay Falcon, Iza Calzado, Rayver Cruz, Jessy Mendiola, Robi Domingo, Joem Bascon, JC de Vera, Pokwang, Angeline Quinto, Zaijian Jaranilla, Nash Aguas, Alxa Ilacad, Inigo Pascual, Sofia Andres, Michelle Vito and PBB Alumni to name a few.

I’m hoping that this will be the biggest and brightest SunPIOLOgy Run yet. Aside from being able to send more scholars to school, we will also be doing our part in stopping the spread of debilitating diseases such as diabetes. So guys, let’s run together in the name of a healthier and diabetes-free Philippines,” said Sun Life Ambassador and Hebreo Foundation Founder Piolo Pascual.
