A week before I went to Laguna for a road and trail half marathon, I had the chance to join Ensure Acti M2 Mind & Body Challenge in Bonifacio Global City. It was a 10k fun run complete with mental and physical challenges.
We arrived an hour before gun start, enough to take a light meal, take a group photo, and perform warm-up exercises. 10k runners gathered a couple of minutes before the supposed 5am gun start. A zumba warm-up took place, which I find a little too long. Then we were off.
I couldn’t remember the last time I climbed, rolled, and slid on an inflatable. Thanks, Ensure, for bringing out the child in me even for a few minutes. The inflatable was a lot of fun! Although, I found it chaotic because there was no marshal approaching this first obstacle. Few runners knew it was alright to hurdle just one inflatable, so there was a long line that took a lot of time.
The next obstacles were fun too. There was a tight rope that came after a multiple choice question, a monkey bar, some spot the difference boards, and a maze. Ensure Acti M2 was true to their word that this run will give runners both mental and physical challenges.
The activity area also made sure that runners enjoy their Sunday morning. Kids were present with their parents and family. Participants excitedly lined up for the Instagram photobooth where they could print their IG photos tagged with #EnsureActiM2MBC. There were also lines at the various booth games and, of course, the loot bag.
Congratulations to the Ensure team, sponsors, and finishers of Ensure Acti M2 Mind & Body Challenge!
