Remember how you said you’d try to exercise more this summer? Here’s a totally fun way to do it! :D


The Etude House Princess Run is happening on May 25 at Bonifacio Global City. You can join the 3K, 5K (PhP 600), or 10K (PhP 800) categories. The registration fee covers a race kit with a singlet, race bib, and race map.

I know what you guys are thinking: what makes this different from all the other fun runs out there? Well, that’s what I thought, too. I’m very glad to say I was wrong! Those who enter the 3K category are encouraged to come in their favorite costumes—the more creative, the better! Etude House Pink Member Card holders also get 100 pesos off the registration fee and will receive cute tutus for the run. What’s a run without prizes? The top three male and female runners from each category will win goodies from Etude House and memberships to Gold’s Gym! Finishers also get passes to the Etude Pink Fair where they can enjoy the activities and booths with freebies and surprises in store.

The Etude House Princess Run also supports Lifeline Foundation’s One Chair, One Child campaign, which aims to provide school chairs to Typhoon Yolanda survivors, and YesPinoy Foundation, an organization that brings Filipinos together to support all sorts of advocacies and causes. I was able to talk to YesPinoy Foundation’s founder, local actor and celebrity, Ding Dong Dantes III about the run and here’s a little bit of our conversation:

Sam: Congratulations, the run seems to be getting lots of hype! How do you feel about all of this?
Ding Dong: I feel very grateful that Etude House picked our foundation along with Lifeline; it’s nice to know someone believes in the uniqueness of what we stand for.

S: Will you be in cosplay for the run?
D: Well… pag may kumasya sa’kin na tutu, pero mukhang wala. I’m good with a pink shirt. Haha!

S: Since Etude House primarily caters to women, what would you say to your teen fans who are still on the fence about registering?
D: I think it takes one very attractive event to pull people together, and I believe this is one of them. Add a great cause in the mix and it becomes all the more inviting. With all these factors combined, I can assure everyone that it’s gonna be a fun event.

S: Will you be running with Marian?
D: Marian’s always been up for helping out and empowering women, so who knows, maybe she’ll be one of my co-runners!

See you at the starting line! B-)
