PRESS RELEASE --- Limits were tested, boundaries were pushed as more than a thousand runners converged for one of the biggest trail running series of the season – the Salomon X-Trail Pilipinas 2016, Davao Leg – last August 27.

Over five years since its inception, the Salomon X-Trail Run continues to be the most anticipated trail running event throughout the Asia-Pacific Region. With competitions held in unique and exotic locations in countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hongkong and the Philippines, it is reputed for mounting the most challenging and scenic trail running races that feature a mixture of different terrain surfaces, including vertical ascents, long uphill climbs, with multi-surfaces of dirt, rocks, sand, and concrete paths.

In the Philippines, the Salomon X-Trail Run has been held for 5 consecutive years, in exclusive venues– ensuring that the race venues not only demonstrate the majestic beauty of nature but also, offer participants a stimulating and unique trail running experience. This year, Salomon decided to hold its Salomon Xtrail Davao Leg at the GAP Farm, Maa, Davao City, where tough and sweet trail routes were created exclusively for this year’s race.

The GAP Farm and the trails around Maa served this year’s trail racers a sweet and tough 7KM challenge as they dashed through the dark with multi-terrain, technical ascents and descents and mud-covered tunnel; the reason why “No or Incomplete mandatory gear, No race” policy were strictly imposed.

At 5:30PM, trail runners began to embark on their adrenaline-filled journey through a route that possesses a mixture of different terrains – from asphalt and sand, to rocks, to mud, and technical ascents and descents. It simulated ascents of Skyrunning races – an arena wherein Salomon dominates. Getting through this track in the dark was definitely not an easy feat especially with a three-hour cut-off time.

Committed to ensure that each race leaves as little to no harmful environmental consequences, the Salomon X-Trail Pilipinas 2016, Davao Leg, remained strictly, a GREEN RUN. As such, no disposables were provided at the hydration station, which required participants to bring their own provisions.

By 9:00 PM, raffle prizes were given to the participants such as Salomon Speedcross 3, Suunto Ambit3, Sea to Summit Products, Ahon products, Headware products and much more exciting products from Salomon. After giving the raffle, awarding ceremony commenced and this year’s roster of winners took home not only a range of exciting prizes but above all, a strong sense of fulfillment for pushing themselves to be the best that they can be – a philosophy echoed by Salomon. At the end of the day, no one went home empty handed as the Salomon X-Trail Pilipinas 2016 - Davao Leg proved to be a memorable and extremely satisfying feat for all the participants, regardless of winning. Plus, Salomon also gave way food and drinks from Sponsors after the race to reenergize the runners – Summit Water, Pascual Creamy Delight Yogurt, and Brew Kettle Beer.

At the core of each Salomon X-Trail Run event is to champion trail running and passion for the outdoors. This year’s Davao leg, it has once again succeeded in inspiring each and every trail runner and outdoor enthusiast to realize their potential and inner strength with its zero-compromise race principle – ideally embodying Salomon’s slogan of being “#1 in trail running”.

In the years to come, Salomon will continue to uplift the trail running discipline by constantly mounting no less than a premium event such as the Salomon X-Trail Pilipinas 2016!

Grind with Supra supported the annual Go Skateboarding celebration in Davao last June 21 which gathered more than 200 pro-skaters in the city. Organized by Joey Betita of Endless Skate, the event was hosted to create an avenue of all Davao skaters --- young, not-so-young, students, yuppies, male, and female --- to reunite for the love of this action sport. He said he feels it his obligation as one of the pioneering skaters in Davao to create this avenue for the younger ones to gather and show off their skills and bravado for this challenging action sport.

The event commenced in Freedom park as the skaters cruised thru the busy streets of Acacia and Uyanguren wheeling side-to-side with the jeepneys and private vehicles. They ended at Magsaysay park where the skaters competed for the Best Ledge, Best Ramp, and Best High Jump categories. Aside from the bragging rights, the winners took home Supra shoes and signature Grind caps and shirts as prizes.

"As a spectator and being a mother, I cringe every time the competitors would crash in various forms but to my awe, they just brush off the dust and the pain and do the stunt again…. And again… and again… until they do it perfectly. From an outsider, they might be seen as a nuisance in the streets but the Go Skateboarding day collaboration gave me a glimpse into their world of adrenaline, speed, bruises, and pain. It’s all about them, coming from all walks of life, rolling-out to enjoy the exhilarating experience of being on the board and the camaraderie of fun-loving, care-free friends.", shared by Ms. Mae Sanchez, Cluster Operations Head of Primer Group of Companies in Davao.

Go Skateboarding Day is an annual event which is celebrated all over the world in key cities celebrated every 21 st of June. Grind shop is named after the skate trick “grinding” the board against the ledge.

Location: 2nd Floor, Abreeza Ayala Mall, Davao City

People Footwear™, the leader in “high-performance leisure” footwear is excited to announce the addition of three new products, including two sandals, to its 2016 Spring/Summer (SS16) collection.

For SS16, three new silhouettes will be available: The Yoko, The Lennon Chiller, and The Rio.

The Yoko is a mash-up between old and new, combining the traditional square-toe Japanese sandal with a classic beach flip-flop. With rounded edges and a contoured footbed, this modern adaptation balances personality with wear-ability. “We wanted to create a simplistic sandal that had a unique perspective” states Damian Van Zyll De Jong, People co-founder, and CEO. “I looked at the square toe of traditional Japanese sandals and thought there was something really fresh there.”

The Lennon Chiller, a slide sandal with an adjustable full-length strap, is the ultimate companion for living the “high-performance leisure” lifestyle. Inspired by the comfort-driven and customizable straps of backpacks, The Lennon Chiller is built for casual adventures.

The Rio, a waterproof slip-on, is molded entirely out of People’s Skylite TM EVA foam providing the function of a water shoe with the style and wear-ability of a huarache.

People Footwear™ has expanded into the kids market with their “Little People” collection; a children footwear line featuring the same iconic Phillips, Stanley, and Senna silhouettes. New for kids, The Cypress received the mini-me treatment and will be available this SS16. With fixed elastic laces and a puffy upper, they can be slipped on with ease and feel like clouds on the feet. Offered in classic solid colors and a floral and Japanese shibori print, the little ones have never looked so stylish and comfortable.


People is available at Res|Toe|Run and Bratpack. The brand is exclusively distributed in the Philippines by the Primer Group of Companies – Asia’s next retail giant.
