  1. very strict po ang milo today … pag lumagpas ka sa given cut-off eh expect na wala yung name natin sa result…

  2. bakit ganun, iba yung nakalagay na name dun sa result ng bib number ko? Me error ba ang encoding system ng Milo?

  3. Are there better ways of finding our names on the result? Sana type lang yung bib numbrr lalabas na yun result for the person. Sobrang hirap yung isa isahin yung names from the list of hundreds of pages. Sana naiconsider din ito. The pictures also ang hirap maghanap. Sana like other races we just have to type the bibb number them you’ll know if nahagip ka ng camera or not. Sana maconsider din ito next time.

  4. @ Mel, comment 209.
    PDF File po yan. May Ctrl + F naman o ung Find text box sa taas. Kahit Bib, Last Name or First Name mahahanap na po un.

  5. sana kamo may madaling way para maghanap ng pictures. sa dami dami ng mga naka green at sa libo libong pictures ng mga photographers, un ang nakakahilo maghanap. active moments dapat!

  6. Maraming salamat po kay abcxyz of 210. I really appreciate your response. I’m sorry for my ignorance. At least now alam ko na po yun way na ganon. Dami kasi kami tumakbo last Sunday and we find it hard to search our names. How about po sa picture? Are there better and faster way like this than to look at each folder. Thanks

  7. para race result lang naman… tanggap na naman na di umabot sa cut off time. nakapag donate din nman kami ah kahit papano.

  8. to comment 209 @mel

    mukhang tamad. uminom na lang sana ng milo para sumipag at isa isahin tagging the pictures with the bib number.

  9. ai bakit ganun wala yung name ko. ang nakalagay “elims runner” :(
    anyway alam ko naman na natapos ko siya.
    see all sa finals. :)

  10. @mel: if you’re referring to the photos posted on facebook, those were taken by volunteer/hobby photographers. i don’t think they have access to that application that would enable you to search for your photos by name or bib number. if i’m not mistaken, the run had its own official photographers? maybe their photos are tagged :)

  11. Hi, I had my 1st Half Mary last Sunday, although I didnt make the cut-off time, it was still a blast and I had a great experience. Just want to know if it is still possible for me to join the Dec 09 Milo 21k run?

  12. saw my result na, though my name wasn’t there..got my result under the name “elims runner”..try using your bib numbers..

  13. @QP comment 183
    salamat sir… matagal ko nang pinangarap yan. Hindi ako maka-sign up sa 42k ng milo dahil alam ko hindi ko pa kaya dati ang 3:45.

    pero ang problema ko pala dati eh iniisip ko na hindi kaya… Nung nagbago ng pananaw, sumunod na ang katawan.

    @limited 190
    salamat bos chief. Hindi ako tumakbo sa aseana noon… nasa parking lot lang ako bantay bata 163 tulog eh… Saka nung panahon na yon 2:10 ang PR ko sa 21k. Oct 2011 ko lang nabasag ang 2 hours. Pagkatapos noon, nagtuloy-tuloy na hanggang nagka-chance magpa-qualify sa milo.

    sa cebu ? yes sir, sa kawasan falls. 1st po ako sa male, kaso yung time ko hindi pang qualifying. Nagkataon lang na ako yung pinakamabilis sa lahat ng lalaking sumali. Si misis 2nd sya, pero yung time nya pasok sa qualifying.

    wala naman pong cash prize kaya walang elites na lalaki na sumali. Yung overall winner, si Madelyn Carter… elite na taga Cebu naka 3:50 sya ata, pero malimit 3:3x sya.

  14. I hope this will help all of us. I did a 42 km runner for the first time, even though I didn’t qualified for the finals it’s a good time for a first time marathoner with only one 21 km trail race experience.

    The concern of the medal and loot bag, you need to read the booklet carefully before complaining that you didn’t get any, you will get one if you’re able to reach the cut off time which is 2 hrs and 30 mins for 21 km and 6 hrs for 42 km. I don’t have any comment for those who got a medal even though they surpass the cut off time.

    For the price – 500 pesos is really a good amount for everything. it’s a fixed price compared to other races, and remember this is not an ordinary race, we are doing it for a cause. The price of the races is allotted for shoes to be given away for those in need, children, etc. We are running for a cause, for others and not simply for medal, etc.

    About the hydrating stations, they are all well supplied. Everything, the right time is they’re overflowing. I commend the volunteers, they did well. The cups with water are all prepared. Just one comment, the special drink they choose are carbonated, not every runner or most runner like the effect of carbonated drink in their stomach.

    And finally, running in the rain. It’s the most amazing thing, you are not a runner if you are complaining about it. If you decided to run or join a race, then come well prepared. Enjoy the run, endure the pain, smile with the people, embraced the experienced.

    RunRIo and Milo gave each runner something they will always remember. :) GODSPEED

  15. I just hope they could put off the timing indicator on top after 2;30 cutoff for 21 km para d aasa na meron ka ring gustong makita na official run result. I print every run result for my run. First time ko for milo @ 21k. We all know we run for advocates and our health but we also have motivation too right? Medals, ok admit theres cut off. Official results to show im still slow? None… Tsk tsk I dont understand the rational. Anyway, marami pa naman run that gives you all you want and also help others too. Bye Milo.. Would never run wearing that green shirt again.

  16. Hi, ask ko lang about the time, when i crossed the finish line the time is 00:32:++ but the official result released my time is 00:38:08 (GUN TIME) also my friends said that he crossed the finish line at 00:35:++ but his official time is 00:38:52 (GUN TIME)also my other friend said he crossed at 00:35:++ but his official time is 00:34:16(GUN TIME). this is not a protest just asking kasi katuwaan lang namin magkakaibigan paunahan sa finish line, panalo na ako last sunday but pag labas ng official time talo ako, i’m just wondering kung bakit ganun. pero over-all masaya kami and planning to join again next year

  17. bkit ganun ung s 5K run.. wla ung time result ko ng 2.82km which is dumaan nmn aq dun.. anyway ok nmn result ng Gun Time at Chip time ko and ok PR ko this time unlike last Dec… more practice pa rin’ but still not for competition its only for fun and to help the beneficiary… GBU all

  18. hydration was perfect, route was challenging, weather was great as expected for a first time 21km runner i had fun, happy with myself.nakakalungkot pati sa over all results i didnt see my name because i did not make it the 2hrs 30mins time? ala na loot bag sa finish line which btw surprised me. pero sana ma post ang name ko kahit yun lang sana, seeing my name is worth the hard run. i agree with Bri and purelove

  19. My bib no. is 10701 registered as Danny Reyes.
    How come I’m now Elims Runner in the race result of 10k?

  20. sino po yung group na nabigay ng support sa 42k runners may blue wave / macapagal na area ?

    maraming salamat po sa liniment.

    Kahit maulan, todo suporta pa rin.

  21. Personally, I am glad that medals weren’t given to those who did not meet the cutoff. It gives that medal some value.

    For those who finished within the cutoff and received the medal, I’m sure you feel some pride. Brag away!

    For those who finished outside the cutoff, train harder, run farther. The cutoff is not impossible to beat!

    And for those who finished outside the cutoff and are complaining that they received no medal, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT AND TRAIN! Quit complaining…

  22. @Slow 218

    ‘wag naman pong sanang mawalan ng pagasa.

    Una kong 21k sa milo nung 2010 elims, may cutoff na na 2:30 sa medal. Alam ko na bago sumali, kailangan kong paghirapan yon. Hindi biro sa akin dati ang maka sub 2:30 at sinigurado ko muna na kaya ko ang cutoff bago sumali.

    Pero hanggang ngayon isa sa mga treasured ko na medals yung nakuha ko nung umaga na iyon.

    Ngayon ko lang napansin, dati walang medals yung lagpas cutoff, pero nasa results.

    Opinyon ko lang, sana nga nilagay pa rin sa results, o kahit separate na file ang mga lagpas sa cutoff para man lang merong basis for improvement.

  23. @Marlon Bachecha: Saan po galing ung quoted times nyo, Sir, like ung 00:32++? Sa relo nyo po ba to? Dalawa po kasi yung oras na andun sa PDF file: Gun Time and Chip Time. Yung Gun Time po, magstart yun nung pag fire nung gun. If you were not on the front line of your category sa starting line, hindi po talaga un sasakto sa actual na oras nyo. Yung Chip time, that should more or less coincide dun sa oras nyo sa relo nyo po. Your Chip Time starts when you step on the timing mat sa start line. Yun po ung actual talaga na oras ng tinakbo nyo. So kung nasa likod po kayo ng pack, ilang minutes/seconds pa after the gun start ka makakaapak sa timing mat, thus the difference :)

    • @jeffersonlo, sir, sa time sa may Overpass, un malaking timer dun sa finish line, 5k lang po tinakbohan namin pero iba un sa official result saka dun sa actual time na nag cross kami sa finish line

  24. @ 233 Mark
    Personally I’m not quitting on running and will forever run until my body says otherwise. Am not complaining also on having no medal, no loot bag. Finished 2:39 on my run keeper for 21k. Am just after the official results. If Milo cant do that, I will run in other races na lang that could put my name – may cut off man o wala. Official results for me is impt. Medals? Well i’ve already got 3 from Ru1&2 plus condura. Official results – milo tipid!

  25. kami ng mga friends ko naka GPS watches. ito napansin namin. 3 sila naka Soleus at 3 kami naka Garmin Forerunner.

    Garmin = 42.45k
    Soleus = 43k

    Conclusion: baka GFarmin ang pinang measure ng Runrio sa distance nila sinceGarmini ang authority when it comes to GPS. siguro pati pag swing ng kamay nakukuha ng Soleus kaya sobr-sobra sa distance ang measurment nila.

    Just my two cents.

  26. I ran in 5km 2nd or 3rd wave but my guntime is the same as my chip time,disappointing to know, because I am very particular with my PR. This let me down.

  27. first time kung tumakbo sa milo marathon 42k, ok yung time, na break ko yung record ko sa condura marathon last feb 5 2012,kaya lang wala yung pangalan ko bib# elims runners lang ang nakalagay saan kaya ako nagkamali?

  28. Using my own time i finished at 2:31:25. My guntime would be 2:32 aleast kasi i started sa likod. My actual chiptime would have made me beat the cut off. Sana chiptime ang gamit otherwise nexttime everybody would want to be at the front of the pack sa start ng race.

    Sana ipost man lang yung time ng lahat. Walang cost sa milo and it allows people to gauge their accomplishment vis a vis other runners.

  29. @Slow 236

    oo… nakakalungkot nga at pati sa race results tinanggal nila yung lagpas cutoff. Wala namang additional cost yon sa kanila at. Siguro ang definition nila kasi, kung nasa official results, finisher. And ang term na finisher, eh finisher within cutoff.

    Since na 2:39 ka naman, take it as a challenge na by december, nasa official results ka na. Sa akin lang, iba ang medal ng milo since na strict sila sa cutoff. It’s not just about finishing, but finishing it quick. 9 minutes na lang ang tya-tyagaain mo. Ilang months pa mag december.

    Hindi rin ako particular sa medals. Kaya lang kasi importante sa akin yung mga medals ko sa milo, kasi alam ko na binigay ko ang 100% ko at nag improve ako. Yung nakuha ko nung sunday, extra special, dahil nag improve ako ng almost 9 minutes.

  30. @Edrick comment 237

    kumuha ang milo / runrio ng certified measurer sa IAAF. At hindi GPS ang gamit nila.

    yung method nila ng pang measure, kapareho ng method sa olympics. Kaya ensured tayo, na calibrated at totoong full marathon ang milo.

    43.xx ang reading sa soleus, 42.4 or 42.5 naman sa garmin. 43.xx din sa googlemaps.

    mas accurate ang garmin pag long distance eh… sakit talaga ng soleus ang over estimation.

  31. @230 Mark
    Alabang Snail Runners yun, ang laking tulong nila kasi nagpalagay din ako ng liniment nun :)

  32. nakakalungkot naman na walang race result iyong mga nag 42K na hindi umabot sa 6hrs na cut-off, personally ok na nga sana kahit walang medal and certificate, pero iyong walang race result parang sobra naman na ata, lalong lalo na sa mga tumakbo talaga at hindi nandaya tulad ko…

  33. @jhunie comment 230

    salamat po. sila nga po yon, nakita ko na yung website nila. Parang napansin ko yung banner nila.

  34. Overall, this is a memorable race for my 1st 42k, I love it. The rain just gave a renewed hope to me and to other runners.

    Love the medal, this is my new favorite!

  35. Overall, this is a memorable race for my 1st 42k, I love it. The rain just gave a renewed hope to me and to other runners.

    Love the medal, this is my new favorite!
    Thank you Milo and to all. God bless !

  36. WAIT! bakit gun time yung ginamit sa ranking? unfair yan para sa mga nasa likod.

    i clearly remember what the guy in the mic have said… that runners in the back need not to worry because we will be timed the moment we crossed the start line and the finish line. i was in 21k category by the way.

    i finsihed at 2:01 and i qualified and i’m not complaining… just giving you guys something to think about.

  37. dami di dumaan sa mga turns, may medal, kilala nyo sarili nyo. ung iba kinumpleto ang buong route di umabot sa cutoff walang medal. sad. dapat may strings or markers para macheck kung dumaan sa mga turning point…

  38. @Mel comment 214

    Tama po si QP comment 220. “Those were taken by volunteer/hobby photographers . . .”
    So tiyaga lang po sa paghahanap ng mga pictures mo sa mga ganun :) Pasalamat nga po tayo sa kanila dahil hard-working sila. Pero eto na po ung hinihintay ninyo. Official Photos – http://photovendo.ph/

  39. wow ang galing may photovendo pala dito… galing.. galing…

    hopefully any events eh may photovendo… atleast naibalik na sya ulit last yata na may gumamit nito eh QCIM 2010 if im not mistaken :-)

  40. @Running Preacher: comment 224

    @Solo Runner: comment 231

    Well said guys! Hope that will challenge all runners to work hard in achieving goals. If they want medal, then they need to train for it. Not just complain and do nothing about it.

    See you guys on the road! Keep running and keep inspiring!

    Have a good great day everyone!

  41. @toots,

    For those who are aiming for the top ranks, then gun time is used. This is why elite runners should be upfront.

    Me? I’m in it to beat my time. Don’t care if I am ranked 1563rd, as long as I beat my previous PR!

  42. @toots comment 247

    yes sir, gun time ang ginagamit para ranking at classification ng finisher. Kung ang gun time sa 21k eh hanggang 2:30:59 , classified as finisher.

    ang chip time, pang personal record lang. Hindi sya ginagamit officially. Unless siguro na may waves.

    saka sir, 42k lang ang qualifying na category nung sunday. Malaki sir ang difference ng qualifier saka finisher eh.

  43. @patrickstar,

    it actually dawned on me that I could take shortcuts, reach the finish line, and get a medal. Usually the marshals would handover a ribbon to mark that you crossed certain checkpoints, but that practice was non-existent in Milo. The ladies who handed out medals simply check if you crossed the finish line below the cutoff time.

    But still, shame on those who had cheated. I’m sure you are very proud of yourselves.

  44. @Solo Runner: You’re correct. Anyone can actually cheat during the race and I bet you would agree with me that cheating will not do us any good. It’s OK to brag that we have finished within the cut-off and got a medal if we are deserving of getting one.

    Kaya don sa mga nakatapos within the cut-off, congrats and good luck sa finals especially to those who qualified. At para naman don sa mga nahuli, uulitin ko nalang ang mga magagandang sinabi ng ibang runners sa itaas na train hard, persevere, and get that elusive medal the next time. Kaya mo yan!

  45. bakit parang ang pangit ng milo marathon naun? mas maganda pa yung last year
    21k ako tsaka alam ko sa sarili ko na below 2:30 ang time ko pero d ko mahanap name ko… official na result na ba yan? last year makikita mo lahat ng ranking mo age category as a whole mens category naun wala lng result lng taz la na???? anu ngyari?

  46. +1 kay solorunner. The key here in my opinion is improvement.

    Dati, habol ko lang eh finisher… Kung tutuusin, pare-pareho lang naman ang distansya na tinatakbo. Pero pagtagal, naging boring na ang lahat… ensayo – pahinga – takbo … paulit ulit. Nagpapakapagod para magka bakal na walang halaga kahit sa bote-garapa at finish time na hindi nagbabago. Tinanong ko ang sarili ko, bakit ba ako tumatakbo?

    Nung nagbago ang aking pananaw, laking diperensya sa takbo. Gagawin kong mag-improve hanggat kaya pa ng katawan. Alam ko naman na hindi ko kaya maging 2:30 marathoner, dahil physically hindi pwede, ang goal ko ngayon eh marating yung maximum potential ko. At sa ngayon, alam ko na malayo pa ako sa limit ko – marami pa akong kilometrong tatakbuhin, sapatos na bubutasin, patay na kuko na tatanggalin, at sakit-sakit na ti-tiisin.

    Hindi naman pwedeng lahat ng takbo ay PR, o pasok sa cutoff/target time, o finisher. Pero sa akin ang importante, eh makabawi. Aralin kung saan nagkulang at ayusin. Paghirapan ang ensayo, para next time, mag PR o pasok sa target time.

    Bonus na yung medal sa finishline at masigla na pangangatawan.

    Kanya – kanya tayong rason sa pagtakbo, pero ito ang hinahabol ko.

  48. bakit ung race results ng 21k and 42k limited to cut-off time lang, pero ang race results ng 3k and 5k kumpleto kahit lagpas cut-off time.

    la lang, napansin lang naman. sana kasi binuo na lang nila ung list ng 21k and 42k para wla sanang nagrereklamo ngyon. Ginawa na rin lang nila sa 3k-10k, di pa nila nilubos-lubos.

  49. @lexi

    that is the way it should be. otherwise the cut-off time will be useless. remember that milo is an AIMS/IAAF-certified race event.

  50. @patrickstar – true enough marami ngang hindi na dumaan sa mga turns (coastal, mckinley) meron pa ngang isa na sumakay ng motor tapos umabot pa with medal and time, nakakalungkot lang talaga….

    @jujjay – hindi ako iyon, pero kasama ko siya, we left him i think between 32K-35K to ask for assistance sa support crew namin along lrt station ng Gil Puyat….

  51. @dalekado ah i see. I was behind him kasi during the last 1km cguro nun 42k. Injured din ako eh kaya nafeel ko yun hirap niya. I was so frustrated half the race kc nga sakit talaga ng itbs ko. Tapos nun nakita ko yun pain niya he made me realize na ang importante pa rin is to finish. I was clapping din when he crossed the line.

  52. @dalekado comment 268

    ganoon talaga, hindi mawawala ang mangdaraya. Pero alam naman nila na nangdaya sila eh. Sarili lang nila ang niloloko nila.

  53. Mark & SoloRunner, i rest my case =P 42k lang pala applicable ang qualifying… thanks sa paliwanag..

  54. @Mark – on the other hand, nagpapasalamat pa din ako dahil natapos ko siya ng ligtas…at least meron din akong motivation for next Milo Marathon…..

  55. sad to know…. we registered 92 runners from our school, but we can’t find our names from the finisher’s result… yun pala ELIMS RUNNER na lang ang inilagay sa mga entries namin. sayang naman… exited pa naman akong makita yung name ko sa list.

  56. OMG!..ang laking hindi maipaliwanag ang nangyari sa recent milo elimination…ang daming questions…sana may sumagot na from MILO/or event organizer..lam u na who?…kasi mukhang nagtatago?…e.g. when RU1 nagkaroon ng problem sa post race kit, immediately, they investigate and found to be na kasalanan nila ang nangyari, so they made the necessary actions (APRUB!!!PAK NA PAK)..rexona finishers shirt-ang daming nag comment bakit walang finishers na nakalagay sa post race shirt?, they said, they listen to all runners, kaya meron ng nakalagay (APRUB!!!PAK NA PAK!!)…MILO:CUT OFF TIME for 21k runners:2:30, walang medal? walang certificate (i doubt, because previously meron at kahit ung mga matatagal na..)walang loot bag eh bakit may nakakuha after cut off?..42k umabot ng 6hrs? di ba sabi na manual 4:30..at omg pati results may cut off na…why is it inspite of all the kudos..wala man lang silang response?..even their official web site or contact site wala rin sumasagot?…ay alam ko na “CUT OFF” na pala..

    i have a great respect to milo marathon..ive been a part of the medics 10years ago…but things are changing..hindi porket matagal kana sa business na ito eh hindi ka nagkakamali…

    i wish sana they do something para maging FUN FUN na ulit ang RUN dito sa PINAS…sa lahat ng RUNNER’S congratulations!!!!

  57. BAKIT GANUN? Akin ang BIB Number, and i’m sure na yun ang aking chip time 24.03

    bakit Leo Noel Oliman ang nasa list?

    GMHES… Elims Runner Lahat Name nyo?

    Ako naman iba na name ko

    hindi kaya napapagod na ang mga RUNRIO encoders? sa dami ng registered runners?

    PLEASE mga kuya at mga ate ayusin nyo trabaho ninyo….

    kasi kaming mga runners ay sumasaya sa bawat segundong maitala pag apak sa FINISH line.

  58. nsaan po ang name ko?

    bakit Elims Runner lang ang nasa BIB Number ko.

    92 runners ang registered sa School pero ELIMS RUNNER kaming lahat.

  59. @iamnoel
    i understand naman po that there’s cut-off and that it’s a AIMS/IAAF certified event, kaya lang race results lang naman ang hinihingi nila eh, para lang naman malaman ng mga runners na hindi umabot sa cut-off how far or near sila sa goal. will it hurt Milo to tell the runners? ok na nga sa kanila na hindi cla nabigyan ng medal at lootbag dahil ndi talaga umabot sa cut-off, pero sana at least they would know how they did in the run. bakit naman ang 3k/5k/10k kumpleto, dahil ba ndi part ng qualifying sa natl finals ang 3k/5k/10k categories? I only ran 5k but i just feel bad for the 21k/42k runners. :-(

  60. Milo should’ve based the cut-off on chip time, not gunstart time. Nag running chip pa tayo kung ganyan lang mangyari…ang dami kayang runners bago umabot sa starting line.

  61. Thanks God at s MILo..Khit my cold nkaabot prin b4 d cut-off time. Ska fold ung B-tag chip me..I’m very hapi n my result me…nice experienced 1st tym s MILO run..ska s hindi nkaabot congrats p rin..ang mhalaga ay ang hardwork and experience..keep in running..train well=)

  62. @henry: Sir, it always pays off to read the handbook! Nasa handbook po ang cut off times. hindi po 4:30 ang cut-off sa 42k kundi 6:00. And dati na po sinusunod na no medal, no certificate ang lagpas sa 2:30 na 21km runners. Anu pa silbi ng cut-off times kung lahat ng finishers ay mabibigyan ng medals.

  63. @Lexi

    ok noted. let this be an experience to inspire you and other to train harder to make it within the cut-off time. milo finals will be on december 9 same time and same venue.

  64. By now people should realize that the Milo Marathon, especially the 42K, is not in the same league as the fun runs. I am glad that the organizers are strict about cut-off times . It should MOTIVATE people to train harder!

    I wrote about this as early as April (http://solorunning.wordpress.com/2012/04/19/cutoff-times/)

    “It would indeed be a frustration—not to mention a humiliation—to go through the effort of running 42K only to have no recorded time!”

    So quit whining and complaining and pleading. There is a Run United Marathon coming in end of October. That’s 3 months from now. TRAIN NOW! Whatever energy you are spending complaining can be channelled into your run!

  65. Congrats nga pala sa mga pumasok sa cut off time! At congrats na din sa mga di umabot sa cut off time, ang mahalaga natapos nyo ang takbo nyo na matatawag kayong finisher, magpursige po tayong mag practice para sa ating inaasahang medalya sa finish line, di bale po may milo marathon finals pa pong darating at baka sa susunod maka abot na po tayo sa cut off time,,,

  66. @solo runner nope, have to disagree. i did train for the 42k as i am sure the other runners/walkers did but sometimes you just dont make it to the cut off even though you did your part prior and during the actual race. frustrated? heck yeah. every painful step. humiliated i didnt made it? definitely not. and most of the comments re medals, lootbags are not whines or are from people begging. they just want answers to what i believe are honest questions. i am a marathon finisher even though i got to the line after 6 hours. heck, im just glad im still alive. but to read posts like yours saying that we need to stop whining and complaining is not fair. i think the word “finisher” was not clearly defined in the handbook. but all’s water under the guadalupe bridge now. :) to those who made it, i raise my gatorade to you guys! see you next year!

  67. sorry kung off topic pero ang nice kasi. from an ad ng dick’s sports store. pang FB. hehehe.

    You put in so much time, so much effort, running day after day, mile after mile, it’s just what you do. Those that don’t run, don’t really understand. It’s why runners share such a kinship with runners. Maybe it’s the encouragement that you get, or the commitment you made that keeps you going. You’re a runner, so you finish what you start. And you are not alone.

  68. I ran the 10k category and was happy with my result since I’m just new to running. This is just my thoughts upon checking the race handbook.Alam ko na ang naapektuhan karamihan ay yung sa 21k, share ko lang mga na observe ko.
    1. Gun start as basis of cut off time. In the handbook lahat ng race category may official cut off time and lahat sila yung time… after the official start of the race (I think race officially starts pag nag send off na) Sa 10k nga 2 waves kaya dapat aware tayo to make necessary adjustments to make through sa traffic ng runners considering malaking event sya.Actually meron din sa rules na hanggang 10 mins lang after ng gun start ka pwede pa tumakbo so mahirap pag late “Participants who begin before the actual start time of his/her race category will be disqualified. Likewise,
    participants who do not start within 10 minutes from respective flag off will be disqualified and may not
    be allowed to start. No result will be given to disqualified participants.”

    2. Finishers Certificate. Twice nabanggit sa handbook (page 6-fine print and page 9) na those who finish within the cut off time will receive this (official time is Gun start- point number 1).

    3. Loot bags and Medals. Ang term lang na nabanggit sa Handbook ay “Finishers / Upon completion of the race”. Never nabanggit na within the cut off time lang ang makaka receive nito. I checked yung milo website ang nakita ko lang is dun sa note part ng prizes “Note: All 21-K finishers within the cut-off time will receive a medal and loot bag.” So medyo contradicting sya. Sa mga nag finish outside the cut off time, napansin nyo ba na may lootbags and medals pa sa finishers area sa may finish line kung meron pa? nung natapos kasi ako (10k) napansin ko na may isang tent just when you cross the finish line na may mga lootbags. Hindi kaya naubusan lang and yun ang sinabi. Or hindi lang clear yung instructions sa mga staff or may iba pang reasons.

    2. Publishing of race results. I think sa part na to, the organizers owe it to the runners to publish all those na naka cross ng finish line their names maski outside the cut off times. Kasi dun lang talaga malalaman ng runners kung official na umabot sila or hindi. Kaya nga official results. Ako din it is important for me na may time chip pag sasali ako so that ill know my official time and for my personal monitoring ng progress ko. yung mga freebies ay secondary na lang.

    Just sharing my thoughts sa race. sana maliwanagan tayong lahat ng race organizers para makapag move on. Magandang halimbawa yung reaction ni Manny Pacquiao nung sinabi yung offical results ng laban nya. Salamat po.

  69. para sa mga nagpipilit sa rules na all finishers of 21k and 42k will receive medal and loot bag.

    para maliwanag lang ha, di ka finisher kung di mo naabot ang cutoff time, disqualified ka na.

    kaya nga sinulat na “all finishers” di sinabi na all runners. peace tayo mga brader.

    pero sa akin lang dapat naging mahigpit sila sa mga di nagtuturn sa mga checkin points. considered disqualified dapat. di tumakbo hanggang uturn, ayun umabot sa cutoff time, finisher na sya, may medal at loot bag. ayos!

    un ang dapat nila i improve sa finals.

  70. this is second year in a row na same spot inilagay ang baggage area where baha … mababasa ang shoes mo pagpunta sa baggage are even before you warm up resulting to a very uncomfortable running condition of your feet. And wet ka na nga due to combination of rains and sweating, basa pa ang gamit mo dahil nasa ilalim ng mesa inilagay … one might get sick after a long run dahil di magagamit yung dalang extra changing clothes dahil nabasa sa baggage are. This is one area that Milo and runrio should improve next year’s elimination.

  71. Milo, post niyo rin chip time ng mga hindi umabot ng cut-off..sayang naman ang binayad..kasama sa bayad ang chip di ba?

  72. regarding nga pala sa mga name na ElimsRunner i think sa simula palang di na nila naipasok sa computer yung mga names natin nung magregister tayo… ,bout cheaters kita naman sa record nila 1:40 pero nasaan sila bat patlang yung record nila sa timing chip hehe marami akong nakikita nyan papuntang luneta , mala crossover moves ,wow lebron!! taeness..
    and about the medal i recently see it na mas maliit sya at mas mapusyaw di sya bronze-type medal parang asero lang weh! lumiit na pumusyaw pa kamote na yan !, at isa pa sa pinaka inaasam asam ko sa finish line eh di yung laman ng loot bag ! kaya pala yung inaabot sakin yung loot bag namimili pa ako sa loob kaya pala di siksik inaabangan ko yung dalawang 500g na milo pero damn!! 1 set na sachet naman, asar!! yun ang inaabangan ko kaya nga humataw ako sa takbuhan .. ano ba naman yan fave ko pa naman yung milo na race kasi you run w/ advocacy bawi pa tinakbo mo .. parang natutulad na rin sa ibang race na puro tabletas that you could not be use.. pero after all that nde naman ako nagko-complain pero sana naman wag nyo naman tipirin yung mga freebies nyo. peace

    “pero sa akin lang dapat naging mahigpit sila sa mga di nagtuturn sa mga checkin points. considered disqualified dapat. di tumakbo hanggang uturn…”

    loop cords ang solusyon dito… pagdating sa finish line, bibilangin yung cords. Tapos ensure na 1 loop cord ang ibibigay kada runner sa bawat turn around.

    Yun nga lang, matagal nang hindi nag-lo-loopcord ang runrio (oldschool daw at low tech)… Ok sana kung realtime malalaman sa finish line kung talagang nakumpleto ng runner ang lahat ng turn-around. Kaso walang paraan sa ngayon para ma-differentiate ang totoong nakatapos sa poser…

    Pero sobrang kabaklaan naman, sasabihin na marathon finisher at meron pang props.. pero in reality nangdaya lang pala… nakakahiya naman yon.

    Sa opinyon ko, dapat may loop cord pa rin, pero dapat strict sa pagbigay at checking sa finish line. Ang chip, maganda sya para sa pag record ng time, pang PR (chip time) at mga splits (na sana tama ang actual distance). Kaso syempre, added expense daw ang loop cord dahil meron naman daw chip.

  74. masarap basahin ung mga post ng mga hindi nga nkakuha ng medal/lootbag, pero gustong bumawi next year…

    kesa yun mga di na nga umabot ng cutoff, ang lakas pa magreklamo…

    guys, hindi ito basta basta fun run.. Milo Marathon to..

    peace po!
