  1. Hi Thor,

    There are no fees to join. However, you will have to register with Adidas Trinoma to enjoy the benefits of being an adination member. All details will be furnished to you upon your registration or at the UP group event itself.


  2. hi, i work in ayala avenue from mon-fri and i would like to join this training in ayala triangle. Is that every tues 6:30pm too like the one in UP Diliman? And do i have also to register first in Adidas Trinoma? Thanks a lot and more power!

  3. @john, adiNation MOA will start this Wednesday, Nov 10. meet up will be at the IMAX parking corner Sunset Ave at 7pm.

    @ButHonestly, yes the whole this is free.

    @efo, yes you may still register at adidas outlets or during the aNR meets :)

  4. hi,
    i joined the ANR in ayala triangle last tuesday, my first time to join them. i cant help but compare the training to RUNNEX. And i can say i like RUNNEX more because they explained everything. What we need to do before, during & after the run. And why we need to do it. And they taught us the proper arm and leg position and the right running form. And i gave them two thumbs up for that! But during the ANR ayala training, they explained how we can get 30% off of adidas merchandize, etc etc etc. My observation is this, ANR was trying to sell their merchandize while RUNNEX training is REALLY A RUN TRAINING. Though ANR didn’t obliged us to buy those stuff pero you will have the feeling of getting it kasi halos lahat ng kasali ay meron. You will be a sort of an outcast if wala ka non. Sayang, I was so excited pa naman ng malaman ko about this ANR training in ayala triangle kasi convenient sa kin since I am in Makati mon-fri. I live far from UP Diliman where RUNNEX training is but i wont mind taking a 30-min bus ride every early sunday morning kung magandang training naman nakukuha ko. No offense meant to the ANR organizers but I think RUNNEX is really a good run-training group. Ill go back training with RUNNEX. Anyway, thanks for the free adidas socks & master eskinol.

  5. @runlover, the aNR is designed really as a running group. This is done in other countries as well. It is not a running clinic and the team leads are not coaches. So I would agree that RUNNEX will be better as a training run. But if you wish to meet fellow runners and get to find running buddies on weekdays, then aNR will be an alternative.

  6. I’m interested in pursuing the adination run. Been waiting for an area nearer to my place, which is from tandang sora. And tuesday is the best time for me since its my rest day from the gym. Can you email me the number of the person I can contact for the UP group. Thanks. Email is [email protected]
