ARCA South is hosting a mobile app integrated adventure run with SyncRUNize on September 19, 2015. This a one-of-a-kind race. Participants here will have to get directions from a downloadable mobile app, and even solve puzzles from the app as well as surpass the physical challenges before they can get to the next checkpoint. Racers will first have to download the exclusive SyncRUNize mobile app available on Google Play and iOS.
We have partnered with Guerilla Race, Hero Foundation, The North Face, Fox and Oculus for the endurance challenges and Go Go Hunt for the mobile app driven mental challenges. It promises to be a memorable adventure run like no other. As the partner-beneficiary of the event, the Help Educate and Rear Orphans (HERO) Foundation, part of the proceeds from SyncRUNize will serve as educational aid to the children of soldiers incapacitated or killed in the line of duty.
Racers can compete as individuals or as teams of four. They will get a chance to win P90,000 worth of cash and prizes for individual and group winners. At the end of the race, participants can celebrate their victory at Sync City, where they can enjoy the interactive booths and the food market.
Registration for SyncRUNize is available on http://www.arcasouth.ph or in Chris Sports branches nationwide until September 18, 2015.
