CardiMax to boost this year’s ultramarathon runners

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines – Ultramarathon runners get a boost as they prime up for the grueling event on Sept. 3 and 4 with dietary supplement CardiMax backing their 18-week training period.

CardiMax will be made available for free at the training sessions and at designated aid stations throughout the course of their preparation for the big event at the Clark Freeport Zone.

Events on tap are the 100km Championship race and the 50km Challenge.

Both categories include team relays where each member is required to cover approximately 25 kilometers to complete the race around the areas surrounding the Clark Museum.

The course stretches from the tree-lined Airforce City installation and its WW2 fighters, all the way through areas of the SCTEX Expressway, and back to the Sacobia Bridge, ending along Balagtas Ave. Athletes will be tracked online and in real time using automatic time checkpoint stations.

The first CardiMax-Clark Ultramarathon reintroduced the brand as an ideal supplement for athletes, according to Katheryn Feliciano, Integrated Pharmaceutical, Inc. vice president for operations. She recalled that those who tried CardiMax during last year’s training sessions personally felt its capacity to boost energy and specifically asked for the supplement at the aid stations.

“CardiMax used to be known only as a supplement for diabetics and patients with heart disease, but last year’s ultramarathon showed that it also benefited high-endurance athletes who needed help in maintaining their energy levels,” Feliciano said.

For CardiMax-Clark Ultramarathon organizer Christine Ferrera, last year’s partnership proved to be a synergy of purpose: “The tie-up with CardiMax was aligned with our goals of promoting health through sports. Last year was a good experience for the runners, and we will do our best to keep this year’s event just as festive as it is challenging,” Ferrera said.
