Step into the future of health and wellness with the 1st Salun-At Wellness Walkathon 2023. Happening on June 24, 2023, this Saturday event is set to transform SM City Baguio into a hub of fitness and community spirit, concluding at the scenic Burnham Park Lake Drive. The event advocates for walking as one of the most potent habits for a healthier, fitter life. It also endeavors to underscore the charm of Baguio as a walkable city, where distances are just a stroll away.

The Blue Zones Wellness Movement and Walk Baguio Movement have teamed up with the City Sports Department, the Boy Scouts of the Philippines Baguio City Council, Councilor Farinas, and Scout Executive Ramon Jacinto to organize this walkathon. The event is designed to be a fun, family-friendly gathering with three categories to ensure inclusivity.

The three categories include Category 1 for seniors covering a 1 KM distance, Category 2 for families spanning a 3 KM distance, and Category 3 for individual participants, open to all, covering a 5 KM distance. The routes for each category are meticulously planned, passing through Baguio’s picturesque landmarks such as the Convention Center, Sunshine Park, University of Cordilleras, Baguio City National High School, and more.

Despite its focus on fun and community bonding, the Salun-At Wellness Walkathon will also have a competitive edge. Top finishers in all categories stand a chance to win exciting prizes courtesy of the major sponsor partner, SM City Baguio. All participants must have a medical clearance from a professional, and children under 18 need a Release Consent from their parents or guardians.

Embrace the spirit of a healthier lifestyle and the ethos of Baguio as a walkable city. For more details or registration inquiries, reach out to the organizers at 0926-6546878 or 0998-9985867.
