April 21, 2015 (MANILA, Philippines) – Rider Sandals, the after-sport footwear from Brazil, is gearing to host an epic two-day sporting event in Cebu that will feature two action-packed activities with over 100 participants across the country. Dubbed as the “Rider Beach Volleyball Tournament and Dip & Dive Aquathlon”, the event will feature student and professional athletes who will compete for the top prize of each sport during an adventure-filled weekend from May 22-23. The two-day activity will be also open to the general public.
“We are very excited to host the beach volleyball tournament and Aquathlon for our Cebu consumers. It is important for us to promote and support sports in all areas where we are present. We hope to give them an action-packed weekend they will never forget and feel the comfort and security from our Rider sandals,” said Cecille Loretizo, Head of Marketing, ELRO Retail Corporation.
To kick start the weekend, the first sporting event will feature student-athletes representing universities from Metro Manila and Cebu who will be competing in a beach volleyball tournament held at Green Lagoon Park, Compostela, Cebu. Each team will first participate in the elimination rounds on May 22 in an attempt to out-spike every opponent on the unsteady sand. The remaining two teams will then face-off in the Championship Round on May 23, each vying to bring home the gold.
On May 23, over 150 participants will be competing in the Dip & Dash Aquathlon, a two-stage race that will consist of a 1-km swim and a 5-km run. Starting from Green Lagoon Park, participants will start with a swim through crystal blue waters and make their way toward the city of Compostela where they will manoeuvre within the city streets in an epic race to the finish line.
