RunRio Trilogy Fetes Runner Awardees

Going on its eighth year, the RUNRIO Trilogy Awards recognized last year’s runners who completed the 2017 RUNRIO Trilogy Series where they conquered the three-leg race series of distances, 21k, 32k, and 42k that happened last June 25, August 31 and October 1, respectively. The awards recognized the participants and honored the fastest and the oldest finishers. All awardees received a limited edition medal hanger at the Grand Ballroom of the Okada Hotel 2/7/18.

“The RUNRIO Trilogy Awards is our way of showing our appreciation to all those who participated and gave everything they’ve got fueled by their #HeartToFinish strong,” said Andrew Neri, RUNRIO Events, Inc. Managing Partner.

One of our favorites portion is the recognition of the fastest and most senior runners and one of these remarkable runners is Sir Gil Brazil, who at 65 still runs a mean marathon!
