  1. Anybody

    Can someone tell on when can we expect to receive the the singlet adidas we paid in the registration. Is there a contact number where can we make follow ups.
    thanks….

  2. @ed
    have to verify that finisher’s medal for all participants.

    as for the singlets, acdg to my reliable source, climacool singlets will be avail starting 1st week of Oct.

    excited? ;)

  3. thanks ms_mars… it helps.. okay na ako sa 5km.. hehehe..

    nadagdag na ba sa list ang rob ermita?! parang may nabasa akong ganun kanina..

  4. @barefootdaves.. once registered on an on-site registration pati pag register online meron bang ibibigay na stab for claiming ng race kits sa oct10-12?

  5. hirap mag-register online
    daming checheboreche…till now wala pa yung confirmation email ko, i dunno what happened. Hopefully di masayang yung binayad ko haizzz :(

  6. just wondering: i checked d sample singlet @ gateway mall. Did all of u n0tice d logo of adidas kotr? It seems that a drawing is a man that is hurrying to go to ofice wearing pants and forget to bring his atachi case!! Nxt time just edit the drawing with a man truly running in form.

  7. Presyo ba ang pinag-uusapan dito. Ang chi-cheap niyo ha. Kung iskwater ang bayad niyo, iskwater run din ang takbo niyo.

    You should know that people pay a premium for prestige and quality. And weed out the wannabees.

  8. Let us stop joining expensive run. Registration Fees beyond P600.00 is not reasonable considering that most runs are sponsored by big companies. Tsk! tsk! Saan pumupunta ang mga pera dito.

  9. I do hope that every runner who successfully registered will feel that they are really KINGs (and Queens) of the Road on the day of the race. Otherwise, this will be my last KOTR Run. I commend the comment of concerned but Andrew Lao also got a point.

    Tapos mag-agawan ulit sa energy drink (Just like what happened in NBA Fit Run – my worst run. Madami pang freebies. Isang mineral water at dalawang shampoo na tig-5 pesos.may GATORADE pero makikipag-agawan ka muna. lolz). King and Queen nga… Peace to all…

  10. from runrio.com

    aDIDAS extended registration and made available both its aDIDAS Greenbelt 3 and Trinoma stores for KOTR 2011 on-site registration from October 2 to 8. Cash payment is available when you register in these stores.

  11. what shall i do, the confirmation of KOTR rub at my email was erase, what shall i do.. pls… advice me and help me

  12. Nakuha ko na rin race kit ko. Grabe, ang gaganda ng mga singlet. Lahat ng kulay, maganda. Ganda pa ng tela. Malambot.

  13. I can’t wait get my race kit tomorrow (Oct. 11, 2011)para kasabay na ng Race kit ng Nike Run. I can’t wait to see mine. I hope that my wish color will be the available color of the singlet. Wait for my comment tomorrow… Run safe!

  14. sino sa inyo jan pwede makipagpalit ng SINGLET??? LARGE kasi ung nakuha kong SINGLET for male, maluwag sa kin, BLUE/ORANGE ang kulay,,, ang bagay sa kin MEDIUM lang,,, so guys baka meron sa inyo jan may gusto maki pagpalit ng SINGLET, text me 09193255927

  15. Good news: I got my Bib with my name on it. Also, I have my desired color of Singlet (Collegiate Blue).

    Bad news: Size Small is still big for me. I still have to alter it before the race.

  16. got my race kit last night, +party party!!! thanks to adidas, kaya lang 2XL orange yellow, ayaw palitan.
    lahat ganda ng color and fabrics used….

  17. go to nbc tent till 11:00pm now.get ur singlet at mabilis lang 5mins u get na agad.so organized cla good job u guys!

  18. I don’t see the logic why Adidas KOTR 2011 singlets are available at the lobby and anyone can buy it. What and where is the prestige of wearing it for those who really join the race and who successfully registered the tough process of registration.

    Run safe!

  19. @norms

    Indeed. It was fast. Good thing that we went there (NBC Tent) not on the first day. But accdg. to some of my friends who went there during the first day. It was horrible. NFA rice daw po ang pila sa dami ng kumukuha. Buti na lang nagpa-late tayo ng konti. I went there yesterday to claim my KOTR singlet as well as the Nike Run tee.

  20. ganda ng singlet….nag sale pa.. he he he i got my wife the singlet na for women… ganda … tatlo ang kulay… ayaw nilang palitan ng smaller size yung singlet ko kaya bumili na lang ako… 500 lang naman… got the singlet color and size that i want…he he he… ganda…at mura pa…c u guys

  21. Two objectives on October 23, 2011

    1. Beat my previous record.

    2. To see in person TBR and take some snap shots!

  22. My wife and sis Havent rcvd their BIB number and chip, I got mine though. sabi nila when i tried to claim their bibs, still not available, and they will send it nalang sa home address… ilang days nalang. pls let me know. contact me kgcampos@yahoo.com/0917-edited-

  23. kotr,until now oct 20 na ,wala pa yong bib race number ko at yong timing device ko…kindly check again..sa oct 23 na ang takbo…i gave my address already to one of ur staffs when i picked up my race kit last oct 10…

  24. Hi! I have a men’s yellow green/blue singlet size small. I chose the wrong size for my boyfriend — he needs an XS one pala. Would anyone have one and be willing to swap? Message me at 0920-9290519 or 0917-5077408. Thanks.

  26. @kristian Your “wave” will depend entirely on you and what time you’ll be at the venue. Big races like this tend to have a LOT of participants, hence, the “waves” or batches of runners who start at different times (usually at 5 or ten minute intervals) to prevent crowding of the race route I guess. So if you’re in the venue early and are in the assembly area early, you can probably join the first wave. If you come in a little later and don’t mind starting a little later too, then join the third wave. Really depends on you. :)

  27. KOTR… I will never forget this, nice event, sufficient hydration, fine weather, I was able to talk and see a lot of runners (friends). But what makes this run special to me? Well this is my first HALF MARATHON RUN (21K). Katakot at first, without training and running buddy. my target is to finish it 2hrs and 45mins, but I was able to cross the line shorter than that, (pumila pa ako sa portalet during the run) ehehehe ang saya ko lang… =) Sulit ang pagligo ko sa sariling pawis.

  28. @apple yeah, your pretty serious while running, your like in the zone! i just realized that if you want a running buddy, it would be great if i will be your running buddy
