every year, the men's health urbanathlon has always been one of the unique races of the year. compared to the usual road races happening every weekend, the Men's Health Urbanathlon offers a whole new approach to road racing.
just like previous races, MH Urbanathlon still has its 5, 10 and 21K routes with their signature obstacles, but this year, they've modified some of the obstacles used in previous editions of the said race.

i've been out of the road racing scene for the longest time since i started running in 2008, primarily because, the races has been held in almost the same venue for more than 2 years already. one of the venues that i haven't had a race held in would be the MOA area. so when i was given the opportunity to join this run, i decided that this could be my come back race.
the past few weeks had been hard on my training schedule, primarily because of the bad weather.
well well well, i guess the running gods heard me (na hindi pa ako 100% ready)
for those who haven't heard or seen the tweets since last night, please see press release below regarding Rexona Run 2012:
Rexona Run 2012 Postponed
In its commitment to give the best running experience to its runners, the Rexona Run
2012 slated this Sunday, August 12, 2012 at the Mall of Asia grounds has been postponed.
Due to the extreme weather that is hitting Metro Manila and other parts of the country,
Rexona, together with RunRio, has decided to move this much-anticipated event to a later
date to ensure that the logistics are fully in place to give participants a safe and enjoyable
run. This will give the race officials and participants who are affected by the heavy rains and
flooding time to recover and recharge before the run.
Now on its third year, the Rexona Run has become one of the most anticipated
running events. This year, participants will prove their mettle and get a chance to win cash
prizes, medals and bragging rights in the 21K Solo, 21K Relay and 5K races. Flat screen
TVs and mobile phones will also be given away to lucky participants.
The top 3 finishers in the 21K Solo take home P7,000, 5,500, and 4,000; while
P5,000, 4,000, and 3,000 will be awarded to each member of the top finishers in the 21K
Relay division. Finally, the top three finishers in the 5K category bring home P4,000 for first,
3,000 for second and 2,000 for third.
