After a successful event last year, the highly-anticipated Vermosa Green Run will return to the Vermosa Estate on June 25. This year’s theme, “We’re Back And Greener Than Ever”, signals the event’s heightened commitment to the environment.
The annual running event is aimed at promoting a healthier lifestyle and a deeper appreciation for the environment. In a notable addition to this year’s event, the organizers have included a run specifically for dogs, allowing pet owners to participate with their furry companions.
The 2023 Vermosa Green Run includes five different running events, catering to different fitness levels. Participants can choose to compete in the 21K, 10K, 5K, 3K, or the 1K Dog Run. This event, renowned for its breadth of participants, is expected to draw in celebrity runners, athletes, and dog owners alike.
The Green Run, organized by Pinoy Fitness, will donate its proceeds to Haribon Foundation’s Adopt-a-Seedling Program, underlining its commitment to environmental sustainability. Participants and guests can contribute to the cause by recycling their plastic bottles at the Sun Life ReCycle PH machine stationed at the venue. Points earned from the recycling initiative can be exchanged for prizes.
The run’s official non-life insurance partner, FPG Insurance, will offer free group personal accident insurance to those who register for the event.
Monch Henares, an award-winning journalist and travel blogger, highlighted the unique appeal of the event. He noted the lush scenery and abundant foliage of the 750-hectare property, stating that running in such an environment can significantly benefit one’s physical and mental health.
Arabelle Jimenez, a lifestyle blogger and swimming coach who regularly runs in Vermosa for fitness, endorsed the running routes at Vermosa, praising its open spaces, wide pedestrian walkways, and bicycle and jogging lanes.
Lani Tan, Ayala Vermosa Sports Hub General Manager, reiterated Vermosa’s commitment to promoting sports and an active, healthy lifestyle, as reflected in their yearly organization of the Green Run.
Further emphasizing the event’s mission to encourage a fitness-oriented lifestyle, Vermosa Project Development Manager Moses John Aragones stated, “This year, we want to build on that newfound appreciation by inviting people to develop a habit for fitness and wellness. Physical activities like running really boost our immune system by providing more refreshing experiences that reduce stress.”
