Green Run
Imus, Cavite, Philippines – Two thousand five hundred runners and 256 dogs ran for
fitness and fun at the second Vermosa Green Run at Imus, Cavite recently,
recommitting their love for the environment as they recycled plastic bottles on-site.
The multi-level run consisting of 3K, 5K, 10K and 21k distance categories added a 1K
Dog Run this year that proved to be brought out hundreds of dog owners who relished
the bonding time and fun adventure with their pets.

“We brought back the Green Run because we were inspired by the response to the first
Green Run. We saw how eager people were to get back to being active and resuming
their normal lives in 2022 and and we received many requests to have another one this
year. Then we added a Dog Run because we see a lot of individuals and families
bringing their pets here to recreate and just chill on weekends, even weekdays. We’re
glad we included fur babies in the fun because the response was overwhelming. We are
definitely going to hold The Green Run every year in this vast, pollution-free space,”
said Vermosa Project Development Manager Moses Aragones.
Entertainment celebrity Valeen Montenegro of GMA, an avowed Green Run enthusiast
and serious runner, has participated in both Green Runs. “Last year I ran the very first
half marathon of my life. This year I was able to break my 10K personal record and
finally did a Sub 1 pace.”

“Running has many physical and mental benefits. It’s cardio, a calorie burner, it
improves bone and muscle strength, gives you stamina and a runner’s high. Mentally, it
has helped me manage stress, it has improved my sleep and I have more energy all
day,” said Valeen.
“What I like best about Green Run is that it’s a safe and encouraging environment.” she
added.

The run was staged inside the 740 hectare Vermosa Estate, Ayala Land Estates’ fourth
largest estate, now cited as the newest growth center down south. Designed for
complete mixed-use development similar to other Ayala Land properties, Vermosa is
known for promoting an active and healthy lifestyle through state of the art sports
facilities and recreational areas. It will be a complete package of residences, malls,
offices, institutions, schools, a church, entertainment venues, sports-lifestyle facilities,
government centers and BPOs.

Vermosa continues to commit to the environment by giving part of the Green Run
proceeds to Haribon Foundation’s Adopt-a-Seedling Program. “Through the Green Run,

we want to create greater awareness for the need to sustain life in our planet and help
build stronger, fitter, happier individuals,” Aragones shared.

JGO Mart, Doggo Flask, Alaxan, Seda Hotel Nuvali, Merrell, Fitbar, Runnr, Toby’s,
