Soleus Running Goes Sabor Latino 100% with William Flores

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Hola Manila! Soleus Running is celebrating the passion for dance with Soleus Running Dance Festival 2017 with famous Peruvian International Zumba fitness instructor William Flores will lead the post-race dance party. Experience the first and biggest celebration in the country combining running and dancing with William who is also an experienced dancer of modern jazz, reggaeton, salsa, cumbia, folk dance, merengue, hip hop and ballet.

The Soelus Running event held on February 4, 2017 at SM Mall of Asia with 5K, 10K and 21K distances to choose from also had a pre-event media launch held a couple of days (February 2) before the run at Marriott Hotel in Pasay city. This is where William Flores led the powerful 90 minutes of almost non-stop Zumba dancing.

The media event was participated by selected fitness instructors, enthusiasts and members of the media, plus celebrities like husband and wife team Eric and Rona Tai who were third place from the recent The Amazing Race Asia reality TV competition held a few months ago. We also saw Janeena Chan with her friends electrifying the dance floor with their sultriness wearing body hugging outfits.

Guests witnessed an invigorating Zumba Dance Fest preview after a short program hosted by Anthony Suntay who we see frequently hosting sports-related events like One Championship Mixed Martial Arts media launches.

Many fitness enthusiasts consider dancing as one of the many ways to keep fit and slim because you really indeed break out a lot of sweat after every routine or work-out. Just an hour of Zumba is already exhilarating enough to make you feel refreshed amidst equally fascinated individuals all raving for healthy living.

Above is our exclusive interview with Peruvian international Zumba fitness instructor William Flores before the media launch even started. More videos can be found at our YouTube channel at

Judith Staples of Soleus Running gave the welcome message, while David Arnold, their President and CEO, sent his message via video since he couldn't personally make it to the Philippines due to other important commitments. Michelle Garcia of Marriott Hotels, an event partner, also gave a short message and has
mentioned a probable bigger Zumba opportunity at the hotel soon.

Attendees were also treated to a magnificently sumptuous dinner of giant seafood paella in a "Paellera" composed of crabs, shrimps, squid, mussels and tuna on top of flavorful rice. It has to be the biggest paella I've seen since I've attended another event held at the same hotel were equally delectable dishes were served in similarly large and shallow frying pans.

Also served were pasta dishes (red and white) and a very tasty giant bone-in-ham specialty. Before dinner, Marriott servers were already offering finger foods as starters for the guests.

As expected, William Flores energized all participants as he led the Soleus Running Zumba Dance Fest. All that sweat paid off for everyone felt fully satisfied with the dancing experience. Everyone was also given their very own Soleus Running watch that would be a great help in monitoring their fitness performance. It was created in partnership with L TimeStudio. Sports drinks 100 Plus and other beverage sponsors also are sponsors of this event.
