K-Swiss Running Club

Last March K-Swiss Philippines sent two lucky winners to the 2010 LA Marathon, gearing for yet another successful year K-Swiss is again on the lookout for representatives to fly and run the 2011 LA Marathon on March 20, 2011.

“We are happy to be sending 2 lucky runners to Los Angeles and join the LA Marathon; this time however we would want them to be prepared to finish the 42K run. Exactly the reason why we are launching the K-Swiss Running Club”, says Anton Gonzalez, President of Planet Sports, Inc.

The K-Swiss Running Club will be the platform for beginners and even advance runners to learn how to last a full marathon without losing a limb. Basic and advanced techniques will be shared depending on the participant’s level of exposure to running. There would be a total of 13 sessions starting December 06, 2010 and every Mondays thereafter at the University of Makati oval (UMAK) along JP Rizal Avenue near the running area of The Fort from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Those who are able to complete at least 10 sessions would be qualified to join in a raffle that will send him/her to Los Angeles, California to compete at the 2011 LA Marathon. The prize would include round trip tickets, hotel accommodations for 4 days and 3 nights, local transports and an entry to join the LA Marathon. There would also be freebies for non-winners and consolation prizes for the 2nd and 3rd winners.

Heading the club is the Athletic Program Director of the Triathlon Association of the Philippines (TRAP) Coach Peter Gonzalez. Peter has been coaching since 1999 and has attended and enrolled in seminars and courses from China to Australia. Peter is a much sought after personal coach of many elite tri-athletes that competes here and abroad. Aside from coaching, Peter has also represented the country in triathlon competitions around the world as he himself is an athlete.

What sets the K-Swiss Running Club apart from various running clinics is the grouping of participants depending on their level of exposure to running. It would also depend on what a participant would like to achieve in running, may it be simply for leisure and weight loss or to win competitions in eat-my-dust speeds.
