About

Dapper — A man who is neat and trim in dress, appearance, or bearing.

Runner — An athlete who runs short, middle or long distance.


I am not a professional athlete. I am not a coach. I am not a style icon.

I am just an average 40-something Filipino bachelor. A nine-to-fiver turned freelance writer who enjoys running for ten years. I have a local and three international marathons under my belt.

In 2015, I started developing my style and fitness regimen. It all started with a fade haircut similar to David Beckham. After that, I switched my everyday clothing from trendy and dated to timeless and comfortable.

The Dapper Runner all began by accident when I changed the user name of my Instagram account in 2016 simply because it rhymes.

This website will share with you my thoughts and tips about running and men’s style, grooming, race reports, fitness regimen, and ongoing personal transformation. I will also provide help to other men ages 40 and above to make them look great physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I believe that running for fitness and dressing up at work and play is a great combination for a man’s well being.

I am now accepting men’s wear and running shoe reviews. Please feel free to send me an email to thedapperrunner@gmail.com

Hope you enjoy reading my posts. I will do my best to keep you guys posted.
