Conquer your limits with 2013 Vaseline Men XTERRA Off-road Triathlon Series
After staging successful series of off-road action events last year, Vaseline Men, the fastest growing men’s skin care brand in the Philippines again challenges you to conquer your limits in the 2013 Vaseline Men XTERRA Off-road Triathlon Series.
Dubbed as the world’s premier off-road triathlon event, the Vaseline Men XTERRA Off-road Triathlon Series will kick off this year with the Vaseline Men XTERRA Championship Weekend. Slated on March 2-3, the event features exhilarating trail run and triathlon races that will challenge even the most seasoned athletes. On its second year, Vaseline Men will again bring triathletes to the pristine waters and rough but picturesque terrains of Liloan, Cebu for a more exciting set of challenges.
The Vaseline Men XTERRA Championship Weekend in Cebu will commence with two triathlon events on March 2: the XTERRA Lite and the XTERRA Philippines Championship. The XTERRA Lite involves a 500-meter swim, 20-kilometer bike and a 5-kilometer run. On the other hand, the XTERRA Philippines Championship involves a more grueling challenge with a 1.5-kilometer swim, 35-kilometer bike and a 10-kilometer run. All of these will take place in scenic Liloan, Cebu. Aside from winning exciting cash prizes (total pro prize money is US$15,000), the top age group finishers will vie for 40 slots to the XTERRA World Championships in Maui, Hawaii. Registration for the March 2 triathlon events is ongoing in the Vaseline Men XTERRA Philippines website (www.xterraphil.com).
Capping off the Vaseline Men XTERRA Weekend is a trail run on March 3, which will feature demanding courses in 21, 10 and 5-kilometer distances for both the male and female categories.
More importantly, top age group finishers for the 21K trail run will qualify for the world championships for the XTERRA Trail Run slated in Hawaii this year. Registration for the March 3 trail run is ongoing at www.xterraphil.com and in all Runner Stores nationwide.
Interested parties may also register for the trail run at selected Watson’s branches. Moreover, for every purchase of Vaseline Men 100g Facial Wash, they will also get a discount for the race registration fee. Just visit Watson’s at SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall and SM North EDSA from February 9-10, 15-17 and 22-24, and buy Vaseline Men 100g Facial Wash to enjoy this discount.
A proud supporter of the Philippine athletic community, Vaseline Men sent a five-man Philippine team to compete in the XTERRA Off-road Triathlon Series Global Championship last October 2012. Vaseline Men also offers a wide range of skin care products which are perfect for men who engage in physically demanding activities including triathlons as they help protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays and wash away dirt, dust and pollution. Included in its range are Facial Washes, Face Moisturizers, Body Lotion and Body Wash. Now, Filipino men can continue to enjoy doing their physical activities outdoors and still get their skin protected from harsh elements from nature. Vaseline Men is now available in all leading men’s zones in major supermarkets, drugstore and department stores nationwide.

Last January 30, 2013, team Rocktape Philippines was at the Henry Sy Auditorium of St. Luke’s Hospital, Global City for The Bull Runner Dream Marathon Running Talk. The speakers were Jim Laferty, Christine Jacob, and Lit Onrubia who focused on the importance of tapering in preparation for their first marathon this February. Also, doctor Martin Camara, a Chiropractic Specialist and Director of Clinical Services of Intercare was there to talk about how Rocktape will benefit runners during this tapering period and how it is important during the race day itself.
Here are some highlights of the event:
Thank you very much Ms. Jaymie Pizarro and The Bull Runner team. Good luck Dreamers! Go stronger, longer!
Kinesiology Tape: How a Simple Piece of Tape Can Take Your Training and Performance to the Next Level
Many of you have seen the strange strips of tape on the shoulders and legs of Olympic athletes, especially the highly visible shoulders of the women’s beach volleyball team.
How does athletic taping work and what can it do?
Not all kinesiology tape is created equal, and you get what you pay for. Tape with the most stretch, better adhesive qualities and without skin reactions are the qualities that are the most desirable.
Congratulations to Jessie Lacuna and Jasmine Alkhaldi for qualifying and competing in the London 2012 Olympics.
“Thank you for your Concern and Help on behalf of Jessie Lacuna and Jasmine Alkalhdi. Your contributions to the program made possible our 2012 Olympic run to London.
