#TimeToFlyManila as RNNR Brings Hoka One One to PH

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Running has become a very popular activity for many who are into fitness, health and wellness. Aside from going to the gym, it seems running is a normal sight already especially at areas where it is conducive to running like those cities with wide open spaces where runners are given ample room to run at ease and comfort. Fun Runs are everywhere and happens almost every month with so many companies or brands, even NGOs and smaller groups organizing their very own runs with diverse objectives and advocacy programs.

But running would not be comfortable enough if you don't have the right shoes to put your feet at its best. We need the most durable pair of shoes to handle all that running. We need one that would lasts a longer time for our money's worth. We need one that would make us feel like flying?

Head on over to Bonifacio High Street at BGC in Taguig to see a booth for the newest brand of running shoes to reach Manila. 

We are referring to Hoka One One, the fastest growing premium running shoe brand in the world. The presence in Manila is brought to you by RNNR,  the first world-class running specialty store in the Philippines that offers state-of-the-art foot and video gait analysis, and carries top global running brands, which is under the Quorum Group of Companies (QGC) having three other brands under its belt—Toby’s Sports, a sporting goods store; Urban Athletics, a cutting edge sneaker and street wear store; and Move, a fitness specialty store. QGC’s distribution arm, Sports Resources Inc., is the exclusive distributor of a wide array of top international sports brands in the Philippines.

We have a short video message from Toby Claudio, President of Quorum International Inc. and Founder of RUNNR, who announced this during the media launch held on March 16, 2017 at their BGC Bonifacio High Street pop-up booth.

Below is the official press release from the event:

Set new records with the revolutionary running shoe line that perfectly balances cushion and stability for a smooth take off.

RUNNR, the Philippines’ leading running specialty store, announced the arrival of HOKA ONE ONE, the award-winning running shoe brand that is making significant global strides with its maximalist sole design.

HOKA ONE ONE started in 2009 when Ultra Marathon champion Nico Mermoud realized he needed shoes to help him run downhill fast while reducing the shock that took a toll on his legs. Mermoud then partnered with fellow athlete Jean-Luc Diard in engineering a shoe that had more cushion than traditional running shoes and a uniquely carved geometry that encouraged an efficient foot strike – thus the revolutionary, lightweight running shoe brand was born.

Over the years, HOKA has become one of the most acclaimed running shoe brands in the world, winning accolades from Competitor Magazine, Triathlete and Runners’ World. The continuous growth of HOKA can be attributed to runners of all types embracing the brand's goal of delivering lightweight, well-cushioned shoes with an exceptional ride.

Recognizing the demand of the growing Philippine running community for quality and high-performing products, RUNNR, a member of the Quorum Group of Companies, will exclusively carry the HOKA shoe line in the Philippines, adding yet another premium item in its already impressive mix of running products.

“We are excited to be the official distributor of HOKA ONE ONE in the Philippines. The arrival of this amazing shoe brand in the country has long been anticipated by our local roster of triathletes, ultradistance runners and marathoners,” said Toby Claudio, President of Quorum International Inc. and Founder of RUNNR. “As the leader in the local sports retail industry, we continue to support the growing Filipino running community by bringing in the best global brands.”

Philippines, it’s about time we experience HOKA ONE ONE. Why run when you can fly? Visit RUNNR at Bonifacio High Street, Trinoma, Alabang Town Center and Cebu and grab a pair now!
