Rundezvous: Where Runners enjoy, meet and get fit!
It seems that everyone is into running nowadays. celebrities, politicians even the ordinary people from all walks of life are into it. Literally thousands join weekly running events organized mostly by veterans in the sport. These pavement pounders found a way to address the needs of the running community for an organized event that is physically challenging while capturing the basic essence of why we run in the first place: pure exhilirating joy shared with others. Rundezvous provides this. A newbie company organizing racing events composed of professionals who share the same passion for running. Abet Ocampo the Founder and President relates
THE CORE GROUP IN RUNDEZVOUS CAME ABOUT AS PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE SKILL AND EXPERIENCES BUT I CAN PROBABLY SAY I WAS THE CATALYST IN THE GROUP. I PICKED OUT THE DIFFERENT TALENTS THAT I SELFISHLY NEEDED TO BUILD RUNDEZVOUS
INITIALLY THERE WOULD BE FIVE OF US. RENE VILLARTA HES THE RUNNING VETERAN IN THE GROUP. AND AN UP AND COMING FAST RUNNER FROM BSP SO MORE ON THE ACCOUNTING SIDE. SI SALLY GUARIN IS ALSO A RUNNER CUM ENTREPRENEUR CUM ACCOUNTANT AND A LAWYER AT THAT SO MERUN DIN KONTING LEGAL MARKETING. MY BACKGROUND IS THE WHOLE BUSINESS MANAGEMENT SIDE OF IT. LIKE I SAID RUNDEZVOUS IS MY SECOND COMPANY. THE 1ST ONE BEING A PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY. AND I AM IN CHARGE OF THE OPERATIONS THERE ASIDE FROM BEING THE OWNER
They all agree that each running event must meet the most basic need of every runner. And that is to just simply enjoy every step of the race from start to finish. Collectively all their efforts are committed to give exactly that in the events they organize
BUT ONE THING IS FOR SURE THERES A NEED FOR A KIND OF EVENT THAT SATISFIES RUNNERS. SIGURO I MUST ADMIT AS A RUNNER AND OVER THE YEARS WE COULD ASSESS WHICH KIND OF RACES RELATIVE TO RACE ORGANIZERS DID WE ENJOY OR DID WE GET SATISFACTION RATING OR DID WE SEE THAT CAN PROVIDE BASIC NECESSITIES OF RUNNERS. SO THATS ALSO OUR FRUSTRATION FOR RUNDEZVOUS IS THAT WE MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN SATISFY THE ADVOCACY BUT THERE MUST BE A MINIMUM REQUIREMENT TO BE ABLE TO SATISFY RUNNERS .AT THE END OF THE DAY YES I DO BELEIVE THERE WOULD BE MORE PEOPLE WHO WILL BE TRYING THEIR HANDS ORGANIZING RACES
Running this kind of business entails so much of their time and effort that they sometimes have to sacrifice their personal lives and careers just to focus for a race. How exactly do they do it?
I WOULD SAY THE BEST ANSWER TO THAT IS WE SIMPLY LOVE WHAT WE ARE DOING THAT EVEN IF WE HAVE TO PRIORITIZE RUNDEZVOUS OR THE RACE AT SOME POINTS OF OUR LIVES WE HAVE TO EH. THATS OUR COMMITMENT BEING THE OWNERS AND ORGANIZERS OF THE COMPANY. KAYA I DONT THINK THAT YOU CAN EVER SETTLE FOR SECOND BEST IF YOU JUST HAVE SHORT LEAD TIME. FRANKLY IT HAS TAKEN TOLL ON MY PERSONAL LIFE. ALMOST NO TIME FOR OTHER BUSINESS
Their complete dedication to the sport, commitment to the growing fanatics and specially their personal love for the fastest growing sport in the world are the factor that pushes them to do their bestin the business
A business can never go wrong as long as the fervor to continue to the finishline is in the heart of everyone. this is the story of rundezvous
