  1. mas malala pa kesa sa earth run. hinde gaano organized. san ka nakakita ng 42K na wala man lang saging? gutom na ko nung pangalawang ikot na. puro tubig at pocari sweat lang laman ng tyan ko. wala din giveaways, medal at certificate lang. Yung iba nga naubusan pa ng medal. ang hirap takbuhin ng 42K tapos wala man lang medal sa finish. akala ng iba 4:30 start ng 42K, yon kasi nakalagay sa racekit, kaya ayon late sila nag-start. pansin ko ang onti lang din ng tumakbo.

    for my first FM, effective nga yung start slow, finish strong. 4:26 finish time ko

  2. di ko gusto yung race! late nag start! walang masyadong water station! wala man lang freebies sa huli! panget ang organizer nito!

  3. first time kong tumakbo na parang solo ko ang daan. ang lungkot. :p
    parang iilan lang yung runners kanina eh. bilang na bilang.

  4. How come pinagsabay nila ang gun start ng 21K and 42K, i also witness naka alis na yung mga runner for 21K and 42K pero yung timer hindi pa rin gumagana. Kung hindi ako nagkakamali after 2 minutes dun lang sya naayos.

  5. I really joined this race because I was expecting a big turn out and a well organized event since they have been doing this since what?, time of Marcos and being one of the only three races in the country recognized by AIMS. But I guess there are still a lot of lessons to learn for the organizers in this event, how much more if this push thru in June.

  6. This is also the first time i enjoyed the start though because there were plenty of road for everyone. Masyado tuloy obvious kung sino nauuna sayo and yung nauunahan mo. I still need to learn how to learn not to mind those runners who ruins other people’s pace. The one’s who will stop 10 -15 meters ahead of you, waits for you then will dash (fast) again. It’s okay if it happens once or twice but for good 2 kilometers na ganun eh alam mo ng nang-aasar lang. They do not seem to be struggling or anything but I just told myself, “baka puyat lang.”

    My motto “It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop.”

  7. international marathon?
    sabi ko nga .. parang fun run ng isang village na para sa hindi pangmayaman…

    eto ang epekto ng pagpostpone ng dates – konti tuloy ang sumali.

    nakakatuwa ang mga nanalo – parang nanalo lang sa raffle… sa sobrang konti ng tao.

    at least maluwag ang kalsada…. :)

  8. One thing I learned from running is, “walang basagan ng trip ng iba”….and this morning when I saw this man who kept on complaining about the lack of loot bags and he even courageously went to the mic to say out loud “wala ng loot bag, buo naman ang binayad ko!”…..I suddenly realized “yan ang trip nya, eh!”….so I just laughed about it.

  9. Ok nmn ung run, ang luwag ng kalsada… Wala nga lang masyado freebies pero ok lang. Enjoy p rin ako kc konti lang tumakbo…first time ko maka front row s starting line.

    Nakakatawa ung iba, tanong ng tanong ng loot bag kung nasaan. Hawak n nga nila.. Hahaha. 4 pcs ng liverfit lang n nilagay s bag ang lootbag nila… Hahaha.

    Livestrong naman next.

  10. sayang ang bayad hindi nabigyag lahat ng loot bag walana daw pero kumpleto naman bayad namin kung ilang bese na postponed ang race di pa nila napaghandaan sayang ang expectation ko sa race naito ang ganda pa naman pamagat international marathon kaya pala kaunti sumali ganito pala ang mangyayari sorry pero totoo ito 5k runner ako isa lang ang water station ang gulo ng paghahanda ninyo sana di na maulit ito dahil hindi na kami sasali disapointment ang nagyalri sorry po……….

  11. MIM Paano naman yung mga 42K runners na hindi nakakuha ng medal kanina, pero umabot naman sa 6hrs na cutoff. please advise how can we claim our medal thanks -bib 393

  12. Okay naman yung run. @pyxcel hindi naman kame parang nanalo lang sa raffle, pinaghirapan naming tapusin yung 21K. Sa organizers, ayusin nyo yung pag announce ng results, kawawa naman yung babae kanina. Inaward nyo sa kanya 3rd place yun pala 1st place sya. Wala man Lang saging para sa mga long distance runners, puro tubig and pocari. Ayusin nyo naman next time.

  13. Sir Frankie, I was listening to the officials table this morning while they were discussing the 21 female winners…nakakainis lang kasi parang mini-mini-minimo yung nangyari.

    Una sabi nung babaeng nagrereklamo “ako sumusunod dun sa dalawang babaeng nauuna kaya 3rd place ako” tapos sabi ng timer “hindi 1st place ka”….sino ngayon yung dalawang nauuna sa kanya at nagbigyan din ng tag?…..

    ewan ko pero, sabi ko nga kanina “walang basagan ng trip”….I do not know pero yung physique nung di nanalo eh para talagang ensayadong pang 21K kaysa sa nag-1st place (opinion ko lang naman, sabagay wala sa itsura yan)….congratulations anyways, peace!

  14. ok ung run enjoy kmi ng bunso k pero… sana hindi k n lng tinapos, kc ung gagong matandang mama bago mg finish line hindi me pinapasok dahil kasama k 10yrs old son me.pra d masira sunday morning k, hindi n k tumawid s finish line. at at at pinatawad k n ung gagong matanda n un.nxt time organizer kumuha kyo ng my expirience n.
    congratz n lng s lahat ng runners that finish d race.

  15. @Frankie – i know… lahat naman ng tumakbo nag effort at naghirap… i was referring to the reaction of the women who won… kasi parang di nila inexpect na nanalo sila… in any case, Congratulations!!!!

  16. Tama yung mga comments dapat pinalitan na lang sa “Manila Purok/Barangay Marathon”, hindi worth it ang word na “international” dito. My first 42k at charge to experiece (Expected ko na naman ito eh) San ka naka kita na pag dating sa Macapagal Blvd (u-turns)ay manual yung timing device nila. Parang may pa bingo sa Barangay “#134, #67, #86 etc.. sabi ko nga sa sumisigaw at nag susulat ng number ay “brod punuan ba? at sigaw ng malakas BINGO.” Pang display lang yung bib-tag (walang mat o ano man device to capture your time) And speaking of time – 6 hours ang cut off time, right? how come after 4 1/2 hours ay binuksan na agad sa mga motorista yung kahaban ng Roxas Blvd? Maraming mga runners na nakipag head to head coalition sa mga sasakyan, in fact my running buddy ay binato nya pa ng bottle water yung isa taxi driver na biglang nag overtake sa harapan namin at muntik na kami masagasaan. Mabuti hindi bumaba yung driver at siguradong bugbog ang aabotin nya sa amin sa dami namin mga runners. Since binuksan nga yung blvd at walang lane para sa mga runners ay wala kami choice kundi mag lakad considering 4 hours pa lang at may 2 hours remaining pa before 6 hours official cut-off(mula MIA road hanggang Rajah Sulayman). At may bonus pa wala ng hydration station/table,tubig, etc.. Then noong sinita namin yung mga traffic enforcers kung bakit walang runners lane, ang sagot sa amin ay “TAPOS NA ANG RACE/RUN” Very valid reason indeed! RUN at your own risk. I was a runner turned traffic enforcer dahil puro hawi ang ginawa ko para lang mapansin ng mga barumbadong drivers na may mga buhay na tao na trying to survive. Sun light, polusyon, careless drivers, possible dehydration and all the nega as in you name it ay meron dito sa MIM. Finally, pag lampas namin sa Quirino (imagine ang layo ng nilakad namin starting MIA Road) ay naka takbo na ulit kami but to our surprise ay pinatay na yung mga timer/walang finishers medal/emergency staff. Dahil sa dami ng mga obstacles para lang maka balik ng buhay sa finish line ay nag clocked-in ako 5:36 (Pasok parin sa official cut-off time, tama?) But then again questionable parin kung may official cut-off time ba talaga. Kawawa yung mga runners specially yung mga first timers and I think nasa hundreds pa kami na nakipag patintero kay Kamatayan from MIA road all the way to the finish line sa may Rajah Sulayman. May mga 21K runners din na hindi entitled makakuha ng medal pero nabigyan, you know why? Same bib color ang 21K at 42K at may mga 42K din na nag short-cut. Good move for them dahil sure medal but bad move also dahil dinayo nyo ang sarili nyo. Iksi ng comments ko,noh? Bottom line – Clap clap sa mga kapwa ko honest na mga runners na tinapos at nag cross sa finish line na malinis ang konsensya – I salute you guys!! At sa mga Cheaters/Organizers – Congrats dahil successful ang “Manila Purok/Barangay Marathon” nyo. Pinatay nyo na yung legacy ng MIM at next year dapat “MIM/RIP 2012”

  17. @Team Nebs,hello po. ako sir ung binigyan ng tag na 3rd place pero dun sa time ako ung 1st. Hindi naman talaga ko dapat na magrereklamo pero nung inanouce nila ung bib nuumber and time nung 3rd na hindi binigyan ng tag super layo agwat namin, more than 30mins.ako ung nasa stage na binigyan nila ng 3rd place na tag, hiyang hiya ako kc nasa stage ako. I remember yung 2 female runners nakasabay ko sila dun sa flyover pero kasi i dont know na ung diffrence namin dun sa last kilometer cos tinakbo ko na talaga.nung chineck nung committee ung time ko dun nalaman na 1st place dapat ako kaya lang inaward na nila ung 1st and 2nd placer. when i checked ung time nung 2 runners malayo rin ung difference nung time ko sa inannounce nila na 1st.wala na ko magawa kc na announce na.i was disappointed sa security, pagdating sa Baclaran pinabayaan nila ung runners na tumawid on our own, para kmeng nakipagpatintero sa mga bus, jeep at taxi na dumadaan.sobrang binusog nila ung 42 and 21K runners ng tubig and pocari.and pinagsabay pa nila ung 21 and 42, i was shocked nung pagdating ko nakatakbo na raw ung 21K runners and i was late na. walang separate timer ang 21K. sana wag na maulit to.. Til our next run guys! Happy running!

  18. Ok yung result ko sa runningmate dito sa run na to. Same ng result ng personal timer ko…ayos! :) Sa run rizal lang pumalpak, bib not found and walang name lahat ng participants.

  19. @Team Nebs.. sir ako ba ung hindi okay ung physique? hehehe!! sir, nagte train ako ha.. sige dagdag time sa gym (dun na ko matutulog) hehehehe!! Thank u po.

  20. @Kae: I saw you and no need for you to sleepover sa gym because you’re pretty and sexy na. I just saw how the people of Runningmate tried to correct the situation yesterday and it was so disappointing, if it worked for you good but if not, just charge it to experience.

    Just as you were saying, you were late and I do not know if there was a difference between RFID time or the gun time, I doubt it. So talagang hinataw mo sila to win 1st place coming from a late start. Sabi nung head timer sabihin mo nga pumunta sila dito so we could check kung sila nanalo, really now. Kaya from there I knew there was a problem in their time keeping.

    Kae congratulations for your win, I sincerely do. I just hate how Runningmate handled it because it gives a cloud of doubt to the winners and resentment for those who did not win. Tulad nyan sabi nila 1st place ka but gave it to another runner, pano yun?

    About the other runner I was telling about, she seems to be running with Mila Paje with her pysique so I’m sorry if I compared you with her, my bad. As I’ve said wala naman talaga sa itsura yan so sorry again if I have offended you in anyway. Remember my premise, “walang basagan ng trip” I learn to live with that in running kasi it came from a running coach.

    Happy running Kae and see you on the road. Many victories to come and congratulations again.

  21. sakin na lang yung mga frustration ko sa event na’to :-)buti na lang nadun yung PINOY FITNESS Team sa finish line to cheer for the runners. had meet some very accomodating experienced runners from OK OK running team (Otek of Runtek) which made my first full marathon worthwhile.

  22. It was my 1st time to run 42KM and yet na-manage ko naman but for the last 8KM walkathon na, wala man lamang tubig at sumasalubong ka na sa sasakyan, panu ka gaganahan… walang food (kumain na nga ako sa daan ng mountain dew at 3 hopia)… Yung pag start d mo aakalain na start na tlaga… at ska bakit ang aga sinara yun finish line akala ko ba 6 hours… Napansin ko nga ang daming madaya,pero dinadaya lang nila sarili nila… buti ako kinumpleto ko lahat turning point… mas hapi pa ako sa 21K makiling challenge at least for every turn point may rubber band evidence na d nandaya… d na aq sasali dito kung meron man..

  23. This one is good race for me!! of course we have a good side and bad side no one is perfect.. i salute the organizer they try hard its better than the 1st quezon city international marathon…. yehey! !

    congrats!!!

  24. Dad, what happened? a question from my family as they saw how disorganized this running event was!nakakalungkot..ginising ko pa mandin ng madaling araw ang mga anak ko to watch me run..they were excited and gladly came as i promoted this MIM to them as one huge historic running event!!As I thought so!!di na makakaulit sakin tong MIM na to!!

  25. nakakalungkot naman what happened..im also disappointed with this run…i never expected this to happened in what so called manila international marathon..sana naman ung organizer..ibigay ang nakalagay sa ads nila..such finisher shirts and medal..masyado kasing napaka general ang ginamit nila…kung malakas lang ang consumer rights dito..instead na makatulong kayo MIM baka maidemanda pa kayo…definitely u will be put into my blacklisted list…

  26. ok naman ung run. masyado lang konti ung sumali. and also hindi comprehensive ung race analysis. unlike sa runrio me ranking per category, age division, female/male category, etc. at makita mo dun ung total runners per category.

  27. @Kae… Hi Kae,I also witnessed how you were humiliated on the stage…anyway,you are the winner and they cant get it from you….you know yourself and you know the proclaimed winners.. conscience will tell them who really won.good luck on your next race….

  28. this is my first 21k run happy kasi natapos ko at kaya ko ng mag upgrade ng run,but i was so disappointed because this is the only run na natakot ako para sa sarili ko kasi walang marshals specially dun sa madidilim na lugar na mag-isa lang akong tumatakbo…

  29. one thing more a week before the run we called one of the organizers and ask if there will be medals for 21k and he said yes at yun lang ang mabibigay nila… so how come bakit 42k runners lang ang inaanounce na may medal… sana man lang you stand by your own word…

  30. we were at the finish line waited for some friends to finish the 42K. we were argued with the team who stopped and started packing up the arch and timer. sabi namin 4:30 pa lang bakit nag-pack up na sila. alam nyo ba kung gaano ka importante ang oras sa tumtakbo ng ganyan? kahit di sila nabibilang sa mga top finishers?
    tumakbo na ba kayo ng ganyan?

    kawawa naman yun mga nahuli wala sila inabutan kahit man lang oras sa finish line.

    definitely i will NEVER join this event again… EVER!!

  31. Wow.. with all the comments and feedbacks, goodthing nalang that i decided on the last minute not to join. Sa website pa lang nung event diskumpaydo na kasi ako kaya i was really having serious doubts. To all the runners who participated, congrats for finishing the race/run. At least your a race wiser than those na hindi sumali. Sa mga organizers, improve every aspect ng event nyo including promotion. It doesn’t hurt to copy other organizations ways or strategies if it works naman diba? That way, mas mkaattract pa kayo ng participant on your next event. (if masundan pa) Peace!

  32. @tri_C thank u! Rest Lang then train na ulit for Putrajaya Night Marathon (Malaysia) sa Oct. 15. @Team Nebs. Sexy and pretty?! Wow! Thank u. Okay lang un no, di ko na napansin ung physique nung 2 foreigners. Ang alam ko lang older clang 2 sken and foreigners cla. Peace guys! =)

  33. This is the worst race I have ever run in my 27 years ofrunning. It seems that niraos lang nang organizer itong patakbong ito. Imagine wala pang curfew which is 6 hours pinakawalan na yong traffic. Tinatanggal na yong timer at finish line. Naubos yong water at sports drink. Nawala yong marker for U turn sa Costal mall and iniwan yung water station ng walang tao. Grabe ! All I got was a certificate dated June 26, 2011 ( if you notice it ). Yong mga mashall maagang na wala. This will go down to running history as the worst race ever
    . We were looking for the organizer but they left early. We have to talk to the medic and crew.

  34. //i’m sorry to hear about the negative feedbacks from most runners who joined this event…i wasn’t there so i’m not in the position to make any judgments (i was in Summit Water CamSur Marathon for my second 42k run)…however, reading through the comments here, this marathon doesn’t make it to the standards of IAAF & AIMS..i maybe wrong..

    …nonetheless, i’d like to extend my greetings to all my FRieNDS who participated in this event.. Congratulations..!

  35. hehe. buti nlng epal ung contact person nila sa registration… dahil sa kanya di ako nakajoin. i ran at UP instead.

  36. i ddnt know there was really something wrong with the results… no wonder…
    talaga palang parang fun run ng isang village na hindi masyado pang mayaman ang MIM… hehehehe .. :) peace!

  37. There are only 4 full marathons specifically: Condura, QCIM , Milo and MIM which are available for residents of Metro Manila. Of these only Milo provides a finisher shirt and loot bag, thanks to their sponsor. Due to the scarcity of these 42K races, we the runners must not condone the organizers but instead provide constructive criticisms so that next time the issues are corrected. Runrio, kindly upgrade your leg3 to 42K since runners are constantly leveling up.

  38. ang daming negative feedbacks..buti nalng di na ako sumali during the last week of registration at nagtry pa ako bumili ng race kit from someone na di na tatakbo ng 42k ng MIM..i hope maging ok na next time(kung meron pang next time :D) since maganda rin tong event to prepare myself to scarce 42km’s :D

  39. Grabe, may nabasa ba akong positive feedback? Parang wala. Buti di ako tumuloy dito. =) Kung may nakakabasa dito na organizer ng QCIM 3 sa December 4, alam nyo na gagawin nyo ha… =_)

  40. @jc_coki: sa sobrang badtrip, ako na yung unang nag-comment dito. check pala muna natin kung sino organizer ng QCIM. di maganda mag-FM pag di maayos yung organizer. masayado napabayaan runners ng MIM

  41. ewan ko ba sa mim. ginawa lang ata para matapos na. inuhaw kaming 3k runners. di porket 3k walang hydration. after we crossed the finish line tsaka namigay. hay.

  42. worst ever na marathon. international pa man din kuno. papatahin kming lahat ng runners ng organizers nito Manila International Marathon 2011. walang marshals, hinayaan kaming tumakbo sa on coming traffic ng roxas blvd. pra ma ka iwas lng sa island na kmi tumatakbo. wala silang paki alam kung masagasaan kmi. inintindi lang nila na kumita na sila. mga hayop sila.. putang ina ninyo organizer ng Manila International Marathon 2011. pinahiya nyo na naman ang Pilipinas.

  43. so funny ng mgas comments…sana kasi sa camsur marathon kayo sumali..alaga kaming mga 42k at 21k runners dun..with matching fire works pa before gun start..pro lessons learned na din to all guys..pag full marathon wag dito sa metro manila..lol

  44. Bakit ganon? pangit talaga ng nag-organized ng fun run nato..10K tinakbo ko then kunswelo mo na nga lang na makita yung result ng takbo mo tapos NO BIB FOUND???? pano nangyari yun? may bib number ka pero di narehistro sa organiser? palpak talaga. Sayang binayad ko…

  45. 1 week na lumipas di pa din updated race result??? ayos!!! galing nyo organizer…wag na kau uli magpa fun run next time..pangit ng event nyo..

  46. #67 @mitch hehehe! sama talaga loob mo sa organizer ng MIM ha! me kasama pang mura,,, well ako din, bad trip sa MIM,,,

  47. Katakot, kalungkot, at kahiyahiya naman mga nangyari dito! And since gamit ang pangalan ng Manila dito, malamang siguro may isa o higit pa’ng swapang, ganid, at sakim na mga pulitiko ang nasa likod ng event na ito.
    Anu kaya ang sa QCIM? Pangalan naman ng Quezon City ang nakataya dito at International Marathon din kuno gaya ng hinayupak na MIM. Hmmmn…smells fishy! Dapat masurvey muna ito mga best men maski pa 3rd year na nila ito, mahirap na, kailangan magsiguro na parang kapuso.

  48. grabe itong MIM na ito..kakahiya talaga, naging international pa… Nakatikim tuloy ng MALAKAS na SERMON sa akin mga traffic enforcers along Roxas Blvd, buti na lang at magaling tumanggap ng reklamo ung naiwan na organizer sa finish line..dmi namin galit na..this is my first Full Marathon and im very disappointed sa organizers…

  49. eto ung run na na-reschedule db…?
    nung na resched sya,
    dami ko ng nabasang negative comments…
    di na ko tumuloy…
    thanks to my instincts…
    lagi talaga tama ang kutob ko…
    ^_^ ina-aurahan ko muna ang QCIM bgo ako sumali…
    muntik na kc ako
    maging kauna-unahang mag regster s knila..

    pero nag reg muna ako
    sa adobo run 15k,
    and RU3- 32k…
    for QCIM, still thinking…
    for organizers of this MIM…
    pls do your part well.

    more marshalls,
    hydration,
    give aways,
    pictures,
    race results,
    all things that will
    make the runners happy..

    because running should be a fun experience
    and not a frustrating experience…

    for runners, wag po nating murahin
    ung mga nag organize,
    hindi naman po kc madali mag organize ng event, lalo na kung gantong
    kalaking event…

    give them the chance,
    lets move on, marami pang runs ang naghihintay saten…
    lets also pray na mag improve lahat
    ng organizers as time goes by…

    Runners:
    Lets Enjoy Life
    becuase running is our Life! ^_^
