“Run the first two-thirds of the race with your head and the last third with your heart.”
– Unknown

Getting fit and healthy has tremendous benefits not only on how good we look or how we improved our physical strengths, but it can definitely positively change our outlook in life.

In reality, a lot of people are now interested in getting fit the only thing that hampers their desire is the lack of motivation. Fortunately, whether you are a fan of Piolo Pascual or just simply want to jumpstart your fitness journey you have to start somewhere and the Sunpiology Run is the best way to do this right.




What is Sunpiology 2016?
Sunpiology is a fun run with various courses from 500M, 3K, 5K and 10K distant and it has been going on for 8 years. The design of the run course was supervised by the most sought after running guru Coach Rio dela Cruz.  This will take place at Camp Aguinaldo in Cubao Quezon City this November 19, 2016 at 4 PM and everyone can join this fitness event.

To make this run even more interesting there will be 4 obstacles that runners have to pass through. “Diabetes Away” comes with LED lighting effect, “Spot My Symptoms Hole” and “Run Away from Diabetes” for 3K, 5K and 10K. While the “Jump for Points” obstacle is only available for 5K and 10K.












This year’s theme is about raising diabetes awareness thus the fun run name #SugarWars is very appropriate. Filipinos afflicted with diabetes is rising in an alarming rate and Sun Life Financial is eager to address this issue by promoting fitness and healthy lifestyle through various programs such as Sunpiology run and the GetWell club.

Piolo Pascual is behind the inspiration of Sunpiology since he is the perfect epitome of healthy living. He will of course be running on this Sun Life fitness event to inspire participants.
