MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Merrell, the leader in outdoor lifestyle footwear, teamed up with Vermosa to bring The Green Run last Sunday, June 25. Merrell, a champion for sustainability and environmental protection, invited everyone including a number of fitness personalities and environmental advocates to step out and enjoy the outdoors.
A Run for Nature
The Green Run encourages participants to become "leaner and greener" while enhancing their fitness levels. The event supports the Haribon Foundation and highlights ways to contribute towards environmental conservation. Runners enjoyed a multitude of challenges during the event, from expansive areas to lush greenery, flat and undulating landscapes to well-maintained pathways.
Merrell showcased their best-selling trail running model, The Nova 3, in the event. The Nova 3 is the latest innovation in their Nova collection and is now made of sustainable materials including a 100% recycled mesh footbed cover, 100% recycled mesh linings, and 50% recycled EVA foam footbed.
