Obstacle Course Racing soon to hit the scene of Philippine Sports

Almost every one of us might be familiar with outdoor active sports like fun run, marathon, walkathon, triathlon, duathlon and other races alike. But this summer, Allianz PNB Life Insurance, the local entity of Allianz, the world's leading insurer and Conquer Challenge Philippines is changing the game as they partnered to promote obstacle course racing in the country.

The partnership includes the staging of three major races under the name Allianz Conquer Challenge, the first of which will be on May 13 at the Vermosa, Daang Hari in Imus, Cavite.

Obstacle Course Race (OCR) registration starts April 6 until May 6, 2018

In the press launch held at the Allianz PNB Life Office in Makati last April 6, 2018; Alexander Grenz, Chief Operating Officer at Allianz PNB LIfe, expressed his enthusiasm in the partnership emphasizing how the company would like to have a positive impact on people's lives by making them experience new challenges through an obstacle course race. "OCR is a sport that has started to gather a strong following in the Philippines. We at Allianz believe that this sport can inspire Filipinos to take on a new challenge and embrace it without fear," he said.

Grenz explained that the challenges in the race give individuals a chance to test their mind and body's capability to get a serious workout. "OCR challenges one to develop endurance and physical strength as well as better coordination skills," he added.

Allianz Chief Marketing Officer, Gae Martinez, however, affirmed the growing patronage of Obstacle Course Racing Sports in the Philippines, lodging her support as more and more Filipinos become interested in the sport that calls for mental alertness, emotional stability, and physical endurance to overcome obstacles in lives. This is true for millennials who compromise a great number of obstacle course racers, but also for GenXers who have also tried it. The increasing awareness of Filipinos to live a healthy and active lifestyle is indicative of a shift of lifestyle that now recognizes the threats of critical illness but at the same time the pursuit of aspirations for a better future.

Conquer Challenge President, Rob Afzelius shares that Allianz Conquer Challenge, with its key message of "Dare to Conquer your Impossible," consists of three races : the Conquer Challenge Power Race which is a 7km + 20 obstacles race, the Conquer Challenge Beginner's obstacle race which is a 3km + 12 obstacles, and even a Conquer Challenge Kids race that is 1.5km long plus at least 7 obstacles. Kids joining the race must be 7 to 12 years old and must be accompanied by an adult.

Rei Abrazaldo, Allianz Philippines' Branding Communications and Digital Director revealed that the company's foray into supporting obstacle course race is part of a special trio of activities on May 13, that espouses Filipinos to take part in a fitness activity.

Allianz Philippines also declared May 13 as Allianz Day of Courage because aside from the Allianz Conquer Challenge, the company is also supporting two other sporting events on the same day, namely, the Philippine Heart Association Run at SM by the Bay and the Bayanihan Walk in Singapore.
