Teams & Running Clubs left footmarks at SIERRA51050: Team Comes First


If I was not able to share this post-race update I think this is one of my huge debt to my running friends and co-bloggers Running Atom and Running Free Manila who had been diligently sending of updates on their event which I failed to  accommodate lately due to my work loads.

A further challenge embraced by an avid group of runners from various running clubs and locations as Rundezvouz unleashed the Sierra 51050: Team Comes First last February 23, 2014 in rising and falling hills of Tanay, Rizal. The event emphasizes the presence of companionship, unity & team efforts by competing in one title to be so called as Team Relay and Duo Half Marathon Champions.

It is a great initiative of holding this kind of event for the reason that each member of the team has been able to grab a chance to develop their personal goals at the same time their team goals by having an open communication on each member of the respective teams. Also, the event is a promotion of a friendly competition to each competitor which strength, endurance & hardworking will prevail.

To have a clear flashback of the recently concluded SIERRA 51050, see the highlights below:
