The Pinoy running scene will not be as vibrant as it is today if not for the presence of several Pinoy running sites and online groups. You’ll surely get your fix of running news, announcements and other running-related information by visiting these sites from time to time.
I’ve listed the most popular and active Pinoy running sites and online communities below:
Pinoy Fitness – (http://pinoyfitness.com)
The site covers not only running but other sports such as swimming and biking. There’s an online forum where members get to interact with fellow Pinoy runners as well as meet new running friends. From time to time, the Pinoy Fitness also dishes outs freebies and giveaways including running gears, apparels and other stuff. Of course, the schedule of events that you’ll find on the sidebar of the site gives you the most updated list of running and other sports events scheduled monthly.
Here’s another Pinoy running site which is a direct competitor of PinoyFitness. It’s a good thing that the site is centered on running only. Otherwise, it would have been a head-to-head competition between Takbo.ph and PinoyFitness. Similar to PinoyFitness, Takbo.ph also gives out Schedule of running events as well as training tips and other running information.
Although geared for triathletes, SBR is also a good source of information for duathletes and runners alike. SBR holds the SBR Series of duathlon, aquathlon, and triathlon every year. This year, SBR is holding the Tri-Manila which is a triathlon event geared for beginners.
There you have it, three top running-related online community sites that every Pinoy runner should check out to stay abreast of the Pinoy running scene and get to meet new friends as well.
Next up, our rundown of Pinoy running blogs. Watch out for that. (3750)
