Runners, sports enthusiasts, and globetrotters will have the opportunity to discover and experience the luxurious and sustainable Balesin Island this year with Alphaland Corporation and Runrio, Inc.’s Balesin Adventure Trail Run happening on Nov. 25.

The run will feature two race categories: 5K and 21K. With only 9 percent of the 500-hectare island developed, the routes will feature dirt roads and trails throughout the island, mostly enveloped by lush rainforest. The runners, especially the 21K participants, will pass through the different luxurious villages of Balesin, which are inspired by the most alluring vacation destinations around the world, including Bali, Phuket, Toscana, St. Tropez, Costa del Sol, Mykonos, and of course, Balesin Village, representing the Philippines.

Aside from the run, the race weekend will be filled with many fun activities such as the Balesin Island Tour and the Balesin Run’s After-Party. To revitalize after the race, runners may also take advantage of Aegle Wellness Center’s special offers for thalassotherapy (a treatment that utilizes seawater and its components for regeneration as well as weight loss, detoxification, and anti-aging), which includes cold plunge and infrared sauna, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, and deep tissue massage. Aegle is a state-of-the-art, internationally acclaimed integrative health and wellness center purposely set in two complementary sites —a five-star city center facility in Makati, and a private island resort setting in Balesin.

The Balesin Run packages start from P19,600 per person, inclusive of airfare and three-day/two-night quad sharing accommodation in a villa.
