There is nothing like running to keep oneself fit, especially if you’re taking the journey to a healthy lifestyle with a fitness buddy who shares your wellness goals.
This weekend, different types of running pairs—parents and kids, siblings, best friends, workmates, and even neighbors— took their buddy health goals to the next level as they trooped to Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City for the 12th Fit and Fun Wellness Buddy Run.

Presented by Robinsons Supermarket, the Wellness Buddy Run featured a fun 5K race and a more competitive 10K contest which saw most of the running pairs sharing special moments together as they walked and ran around the camp, and, later on, wearing smiles as they sprinted and hugged each other across the finish line.
“On the 12th year of the Fit and Fun Wellness Buddy Run, we are simply happy to have become a part of the wellness journey of Filipino families through the years. And much like how the running duos rely on each other for support during races, we are honored to be a reliable partner of the family in getting fit and living a healthy lifestyle,” said Jody Gadia, Robinsons Supermarket managing director.

The 10K race top podium finishers received one year-worth of groceries while the 2nd and 3rd place finishers took home Robinsons Supermarket gift certificates and healthy freebies to jump start and continue their wellness journey.
