The 5th Osvaldo Memorial Trail Run was held last Sunday, November 27, 2013 in Quadra Eco Resort, Sumpong, Malaybalay City. The run was organized by Dr. Rachito Abellanosa and his wife Maam Maite to commemorate the 7th death anniversary of their late son Osvaldo. Event distances were 5K and 10K and race route followed the road going to Barangay Can-ayan. The race was dubbed as purely fun run and runners were encouraged not only to beat their own PR but also to enjoy the route and each other's company.
I opted to run only 5K as I already ran 10K in the Kisolon Fiesta Run 2013 which happened the day before Osvaldo Run. Also, I had a bad case of hangover caused by a drinking binge with my friends on the eve before the race (hahaha!).
Malou went on to finish the 10K route where she placed third in the women's category. She won a cool Nathan running shirt for her effort.
After the race, running and outdoor goodies were raffled to all participants. I won a sling pouch while Malou got a Columbia singlet. Other prizes given away include running vests, dri fit long sleeves, sandals, casual shoes, bags, Uniliver products and a pair of Hoka ultra running shoes (!).
Since all participants won in the raffle, everybody went home happy and satisfied.
