  1. thanks for the nice run, though i dont think i would be running again next year. We were disappointed of the lack of water stations and the fact that some 21k runners were able to cut route not their fault. It was due to the lack of marshals in the area at the entrance to buendia flyover. Some runners did a U turn rather than entering the flyover. Good luck next year though.

  2. whew! Nice weather! Kaso walang yelo yung tubig tapos maynilad water pa.. Naubusan pa kami ng Pocari.. :( But overall, ayos sya! :)

  3. some observations:

    1. pila na agad sa baggage counter ng 21K. magsstart na yung guntime eh ang haba pa din ng pila

    2. walang countdown til gunstart. biglang “bang” na lang

    3. self-service sa ibang water stations

    4. naubusan ng baso sa ibang water stations, don ka papainumin sa takip ng water gallon

    5. mas madami pa yung nagsspary ng water kesa sa mga tao sa water stations

    6. wala gaanong road markers for distance KMs

  4. to the PF Peeps, who is the kind-looking gentleman-runner wearing the PF Technical shirt graciously taking pictures of the 21K finishers?

    I think (I hope) his lens captured my approach to the finish line ha ha ha….

    sayang instead of the Earth Run shirt sana PF shirt na lang ginamit ko…. anyway, I would appreciate it big time if the kind photog can confirm whether he got me…. my BIB is 9524….thanks…

    congratz to all….have a nice long extended weekend ahead…

  5. +1 on the lack of road markers for distance KMs. Ang tindi nung pila sa baggage counter, at disorganized. Sana ang ginawa na lang nila dinikitan na lang nila ng masking tape at sinulatan ng bib no. yung bag, parang yung ginawa sa RU2. Natatagalan kasi sa pag gamit pa ng string na lock and tingin ko madali sya matanggal, I could just imagine yung mga bag na nasa pinakailalim..

  6. @sir Vince- nag cut ng route papuntang flyover? so hindi na sila nakapunta ng makati yung 21k runners? at bumalik na sa finish line?

    total distance for the said 21k is 22.51 km talaga.. and iba yung race route kesa sa map na pinost nila.. :)

  7. Just attended the Earth Run Manila 2011. This is the first run that I participated. To think na 21K pa ang tinakbo ko.So far may mga konting observations lang ako regarding the run. Hindi masyado malakas yung audio ng Emcee kaya parang pag bago ka sa Global City malamang maligaw ka kung nasaan o meron bang run. Tapos yung gunshot sa start ng run nakakagulat parang wala lang. Wala man lang count down. Isa pa wala man lang markers kung nakakailang K na ang natatakbo ng mga runners. Tapos sa dulo ng race yung finish line hindi yun ang dadaanan kung hindi yung start line. Kaya nakakaconfuse. Anyways, ilang observation ko lang naman yun. Pero the experience and the fun, hindi naman matatawaran yun. Sana kung may susunod, paki-improve nalang yung mga flaws kasi almost okay naman na. (“,)

  8. Ok, with the posts I’m reading, hindi naman pala sayang na hindi ako nakatakbo kanina. Heavy downpour prevented me from coming to Fort.

    PF, I’ll get nlang the shirts next time, or let me know if you can send them via courier na.

  9. sayang walang mark kung ilang KM na yung natakbo. and. nakakalito yung sa finish line. wala ding nakalagay kung pang 5k or 10k.

  10. Overall ayus naman un race kanina kahit paano pero ang daming palpak. Nag 21k ako pero 3 station lang ang natigilan ko na may pocari at un iba tubig na. Wala naman sana masama sa tubig pero hindi sya malamig at un ibang stations nag set up pa lang sila pero ang dami na runners ang dumaan at un isa wala daw silang baso. Sana sa susunod maayos nila un kasi kung nagkataon na hindi umuulan at matandi ang sikat ng araw, lalo na at late na sila nag simula e naka lagay 5:10am ang gun start pero halos 5:30am na ata nag simula, marami mga runners ang titirik at wag naman sana madisgrasya. Sana sa susunod pagisipan ng mga organizer ang mga ganyan na maliliit na bagay ksi yan ang pinaka importante ang runners safety! Ayus na un 2 station lang ang Pocari, siguro tag tipid talaga ang organizer pero un tubig na walang yelo?! I find that unacceptable! Personally, I won’t be joining the earth run next year. Sana may makabasa nito lalo un mga bagong runners na wag tyo susuporta sa mga organizer na tinitipid ang runners ksi malamig na tubig during a run especially un it takes more that an hour to finish goes a long way lalo na kung mainit. Trust me I’ve been there and I don’t it to ever happen again to anybody! That being said subukan nyo un mga runs ng MLB, maganda ang experience ko sa mga runs nila last year. Hope to see you guys on the next run! Till then train hard and keep safe! Ciao!

  11. it was a great run although marami ma sablay sa ibang areas like 1.) wala baso sa water station sa kalayaan flyover. nakabalik na kami wala pa rin baso. 2.) wala countdown sa starting line. 3. maynilad water yata yung tubig not mineral water. 4. baggage super haba ng pila nagstart na nakapila pa kami kaya dinala ko nalang bag ko. but overall ok naman nag enjoy kami. konte sponsor? peace!

    • Hi Guys! Just a reminder, positive and negative comments are welcome, but please try to be constructive and no name calling please. In the end, these comments are to help improve the sport that we all love.

  12. i will remember the organizer of this run … para di na makapagpa-register on their future runs. for those who ran earlier today, thanks for posting your comments. Tatakbo pa naman sa ako dito, good that I did not register on this event.

  13. Lack of Martials, Lack of signage’s, Lack of H20, Martials Lacking of Information, Sound System is not good, Late gun start,
    ang tagal pa mag refill ng water nung mga nasa water station… sorry po guys, gusto ko lng sabihin yung kulang and mali sa race, kasi Ive been into several Fun runs nadin pero ito n yata yung ang daming errors… still joining the next event of earth run to see kung mag iimprove na.. Greenpeace pa naman.. sayang…

  14. di nman maiiwasan ung mga flaws sa run..we al learmed from our mistakes.
    overall, i enjoyed the run.
    buti nalang ok ung weather, i think past 9am na bumuhos ung bonggang-bonggang ulan..we were taking are breakfast during that time..
    photos nalang from official photographers ( sana na-captured kami) ^_^

  15. my friends and I were late…for about 15mins i guess..

    i thought we were the one who noticed..
    oo nga…hindi nga organized ung event…

    hinulaan pa namen if nagsimula na talaga..
    kasi parang wala lang…haha..hindi gaya nung sa rio sa moa…

    well, for the organizers, hope you can read the feedback na lang din…may nabasa ako na hindi na daw uulit tumakbo with this one…pero improve nyo na lang din po sana…

  16. I enjoyed the run… most runs I attended are way bad compared to this run… Will definitely Run again next year!!! Two Thumbs Up for this Earth Run!!!….

    gun start is late and no countdown
    no markings and marshals along the 21k route
    water station is limited.
    no water cups near pasong tamo u-turn, instead we use cover of water gallon to drink.
    no markings to the finish line, confusing where to exit.
    same as last year, no improvement

  18. my first time to run the Buendia Flyover and thanks to Lem’s tip, i did the shembot uphill technique not to strain my legs. always works! so happy to have also ran with amazing friendz from my PF/ARC/RunnR Academy families. Team Alpha 1 – your team always RockS! guys you all deserve pats in the back!

    many thanks also to the very many who bought their PF tech shirts! wear it proudly and if you can, in your next run events! Mr PF is always overwhelmed by the massive turnout. even during the Ateneo Run for Sparks @MOA, the shirts also sold like hotcakes, acdg to our PF runners. paging Ms Cheryl Castaneda – we miss you!

    to 2nd Avenue and Ms Joanne Pecson – congrats in organizing this event with GreenPeace. a feedback of mine is the lack of distance markers which is always very helpful to all runners. so happy to see Ms. Jaymie Pizarro during Awards Ceremony.

    to our banana sponsor – Allan07 – Thank You and finally after 20 yrs! hehe! you made a lot of our runner friends happy after the race. even the strangers, nakikain din, hehe!

    many thanks also to the awesome DSLR lenses of — RjKnightRunner of Team USB, ARC staff, JPeg Photog, PhillipBF. sa uulitin ha?

  19. I enjoyed the run simply because of the good weather (malamig). Though, ang tagal bago ako pagpawisan. End result is ok kc good timing & good overall ranking I’ve got. Kainis lang dun s 1 runner n nk dark blue na bigla n lang nag U-turn khit di pa niya time mag U-turn (just hoping NAG-IISA ka lang s nakita ng 2 mata ko). Comment ko lang; di ka dapat maging proud in yourself kahit pa mas mababa sa 2 hours ang time mo for 21k kc hindi naman deserving dahil maliwanag pa sa sikat ng araw n NANDAYA ka! Nkkahinayang lang kc na kung praktisado ka tapos mag short-cut kalang din naman, eh wala ding dating un amigo. Sayang nga lang di ko nakuha Bib # mo para derecho ko ng sasabihin d2 sa post ko. Hindi po ako galit syo o kung kninuman. Asar lang ako sa mga NANDADAYA at ayaw lumaban ng parehas. Yan ang opinyon ko….

  20. aw it means 22.5km pala ung tinakbo ko yup its true isa ako sa uminom sa takip bad thng dpa malamig and nakaka dhydrte na 2laga…

  21. I enjoyed the race. Glad to be of help! :)

    Just one recommendation: Please include next time the route map in the kit and not just post it online. Thanks!

  22. Naligaw ako.. yung isang marshall tinanong ko kung saan ang 5K.. kanto na pala nang papuntang finish line.. Pinakaliwa ako nang marshall sa halip na Kanan papunta nang Finish line. 5K naging 10K kaya pala mag isa na lang ako tumatakbo sa route nang 5K. Hindi nya nakita yung string na binigay sa akin? Sos First time ko sumali sa ganitong event..

  23. first time ko nakaranas na mas marami pang namamasa ng mukha, na di naman kailangan, kesa sa mag-marshal sa mga nagdadatingan na mga runners.

  24. //@BayRunner: you could have paced with us.. :)

    Earth Run 2011: i give it 5. despite all the technical glitches, i can’t really complain because i chose to run. nonetheless, there are a few things that the organizers need to know so the can do better in their future events. and also, to attract more running enthusiasts to join their events.

    Thumbs Down:
    -super late gunstart. the bad weather should not be a reason for that. (milo marathon started on time despite the heavy downpour..)
    -we all caught off guard when we heard the gun start..aawtz..!
    -as for the audio, i heard the lady at the registration booth said that they had problems with the electricity.it was due to heavy rains the night before.(at the 35th national milo, there was also a problem with the audio when the 42k runners were prepping up to set off).
    -INTEGRITY issue. when i came to the registration booth, i asked for a small sized shirt. the lady who was attending to the onsite registrants informed me that there weren’t any small sized shirts anymore. that was about 4:20am. later on, i met one of my friends who also registered onsite (she came to the venue much later), and she got a small sized shirt.
    -lack of marshals:
    >in the baggage area
    >along the 21k route
    >in the water stations.
    >this resulted to ‘lost’ runners. they unfortunately took the wrong way.our very good friend Bryan of Team Alpha1 was one of those ‘lost’ runners.
    >some runners took the liberty of short-cutting the route. read: cheated
    -lack of km markers
    -lack of cups. there was one water stations where runners had to drink from the cover of the water gallons.
    -the water station in front of mercato didn’t have any marshal. it was a self-service station..(or maybe, that was when we passed by that station. they may have assigned someone later on).
    -runners with unregistered pacers (these runners should be disqualified from winning any prize). it’s another form of cheating.

    Thumbs Up:
    -the staff came to the venue early. i arrived a quarter past 4 (to register). good thing there’s an onsite registration.
    -use of paper cups
    -staff who were picking up the cups on the road and putting them in black garbage bags
    -greetings and cheers from marshals
    -the release of unofficial result a day after.it’s good to know at least when you know there’s something wrong with your result, you can inform them immediately. it would be easier for them as well to make adjustments before they release the final results.
    -new PR for me..ahahah..! thanks to ta1.martian for the pace..
    -meeting,bonding and photo ops with PF/ARC/Runner Friends
    -fun, fun, and more fun..!

  25. @Ms_Mars what is shembot uphill technique po? after buendia flyover on the way back sumakit ang binti ko kaya lakad takbo na lang but i finished my run, new PR sana pero OK lang nag enjoy pa rin.

  26. @branlet
    the shembot, is a very helpful technique also known as kembot, hehe. it is very straining for our legs when doing uphills but when you do some kembot, it easens up pressure on our legs and calves especially, and is distributed to the glutes as well.
    try it next time!

    dont worry abt the PR, it will come later. good thing you enjoyed the run foremost!
    congwatz po!

  27. naligaw din kame..it’s not my first time to run..pero yung marshall tinuro kame pakaliwa then kanan pala..badtip xa!!!dumoble tuloy kame…

  28. anu po ba 2laga total nung run sa 21k ? i mean ilng km ba 2lga? yup i agree dun sa isang comment na dapat d cla nag sali ng runners when i was on buendia bridge nakita kona agad ung black mamba na pabalik hayuuf ang layu pa pala nun… den along der wala 2lga cap ur water station i have to drnk sa cover nung gallon… tsk tsk…i saw some runner nga na nag u turn na sa bridge plng… wala kasi marshall =( anyway tnx to my i phne i have sounds i finish the race for 1.55min =)

  29. im happy to finish the race for 1 hour and 55 min … sana nxtyear ayusin na ng organizer ung mga eror nila ……… no offensce pero mas ok 2laga ang run rio … =)

  30. i traced the route using mapmyrun ang yielded 21.15km and a gps user also confirmed its accuracy. got no complains on the distance. i hope AdEvent is brave enough to admit their shortcomings and be able to bring a bigger and better Earth Run next year =)

  31. Yup when it will be the official race results will come out & to what website? Baka same scenario with Unilab Run 2 n padagdag ng padagdag un Overall Ranking though the finished time never change. Hope not kc mas maraming di hamak un nag run for 21k sa Unilab 2 than this Earth Run 2011.So far di pa naman nagbabago my overall ranking in ER 2011 for more than a week na pagbra browse ko sa cnsbing “unofficial” results.

  32. Problem with the result was, it is not accurate. I have a buddy during the race, we started the same time pero sa result e magkaiba kami.

  33. @ passionista ung nakita mu bang nag u turn is ung lalaki na walang suot sa feet? kasi nagulat ko nung awarding na andun sya sa stage eh halos kasabay ko lng sya sa dafort tumatakbo… baka dko napansin lumipad dahil may pak2x/……. tsk tsk…

  34. sobrang sama ng loob ko sa marathon na ito. nagfillup ako ng form sa 21k. tapos nung tumakbo ako hinarang ako kasi pang 3k lang daw bib num
    ber ko.parang niloko lang ako ng runners runners kasi itinanung ko pa kung tama ba ang singlet na ibinigay nila para sa akin sabi ng tao na incharge sa registration, tama raw…sana wag naman nila gawin ito sa iba..
