SyncRUNize brings adventure to ALI’s new CBD ARCA South

03:31 PM August 27, 2015

Synchronize your watches for a grand adventure in ARCA South! The 74­‐hectare Taguig property, set to become a new “city in sync” as master-­planned by Ayala Land, Inc., is hosting a mobile-­‐app integrated adventure run on Saturday, September 19, 2015.

SyncRUNize will be unlike other regular 5 km. fun runs as it challenges both the body and the mind through a number of physical obstacles and mental drills. Racers will first have to download the exclusive SyncRUNize mobile app available on Google Play and iOS. The app, which works online as well as offline, directs participants from one checkpoint to another where they will have to accomplish a physical or mental challenge before they can move on to the next challenge.

ARCA South has partnered with Guerilla Race, organizers of the Vierce sport Guerilla Race Series, to specially design the obstacle course. Mental drills, which can include calculations, stock knowledge tests, or abstract reasoning were designed by Go Go Hunt. Other partners are The North Face, Fox, Oculus Archery and as the partner­‐beneficiary of the event, the Help Educate and Rear Orphans (HERO) Foundation. Ten percent of the proceeds from SyncRUNize will serve as educational aid to the children of soldiers incapacitated or killed in the line of duty.

Racers can compete as individuals or in teams of four. They will get a chance to win P90,000 worth of cash and prizes for individual and group winners. At the end of the race, participants can celebrate their victory at Sync City where they can enjoy the interactive booths and the food market.

FEATURED STORIES

“SyncRUNize is the kind of event that embodies the principle behind ARCA South as a City in Sync,” said Mr. Stephen Comia, ARCA South Project Development Manager. “The development is envisioned to be the newest CBD in Taguig where all the elements that make a city are present and in sync. In addition, the efficient management of the road network, traffic, communications, environment, security, and other systems in ARCA South are primary.”

With DOTC’s planned Integrated Transport System (ITS) South Terminal being recently awarded to Ayala Land, Inc., ARCA South will become one of the most highly connected districts in the city. This world­‐class transport terminal will rise beside ARCA South and increase accessibility to the property. The direct link to the Skyway and C5/ C6 highways will also make ARCA South minutes away from Makati, Bonifacio Global City, and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

ARCA South will also eventually operate with a centralized system for traffic, power, and security management, furthering its vision of being a city in sync. The district will be highly pedestrianized, punctuated by green spaces and streetscapes, and integrated basement parking to free the streets.

To get to ARCA South, participants can take the East Service Road along South Luzon Expressway or C5 in Taguig. For those interested in taking public transport, shuttle services to the race can be availed for a minimum fee of P30 per person per round trip via pick up points at Tower 1 in Ayala Avenue, Makati; TriNoma Mall, Quezon City; and Alabang Town Center, Muntinlupa.

Registration for SyncRUNize is available on www.arcasouth.ph or in Chris Sports branches nationwide until September 18, 2015!
