    Great Run. Challenging Yet Satisfying!!

  2. panalo! tumakbo sa arawan, uphill at downhill. sarap din tumakbo pag maganda ung view. caliraya lake, japanese garden at kung ano2 pa. thumbs up! mejo na hassle lang kami sa shuttle bus. akala namin hindi kami aabot hehe mga around 30 mins pa bago mag gun start. anyways 9/10 sa event. can’t wait sa challenge 3

  3. it was a great experience. the uphill part was indeed a challenge but when you get to see the views, it was rewarding.it was definitely nice to run outside of the metro. hope to join again next year…

  4. OK ang route, challenging ang continuous uphill run…kaya lang medyo kinapos ata sa tubig…saka medyo magulo ang disribution ng finishers kit…will be looking forward for next years run…sana lang mas maayos nyo pa…but still its a great run…

  5. First time ko sa Lumban. Enjoyed my 14 k Run. Half mary na me sa part 3 (2014) Thank you Laguna!!!

  6. nachallenge talaga ako sa ruta,di ko nakuha un target kong time,,pero ok na rin,,kailan makikita un results at mga photos..thanks

  7. running for five years, this the best race I ever had. Panalo ang view, panalo ang ruta. panalo ang mga tao sa Lumban. Panalo ang Finisher Shirt at medal. Kung pwede sanang makabili, bibili ako ng finisher shirt para meron kaming buong pamilya. Kudos organizers. hanggang sa muli.

  8. Nabalitaan niyo ba yung runner na nanakawan ng mga gamit? Nabuksan yung sasakyan nila. :(

    Hindi rin ako nakakuha ng finisher shirt size na gusto ko. Puro small at extra small na lang ang natira.

    Tindi ng uphill route! Sana okay din yung sa Los Baños na uphill challenge.

  9. The finisher’s medal that is worth keeping. Talagang pingahirapan ko. Mabuti at hindi ako na sweep..:P
    So nice finisher shirt. Ang ganda.Pabili po kung meron pang sobra.

  10. Astig…buti kinaya ng diddib ko ang Uphill..talagang postcard pretty ang track..Nakakaaliw pa ng mga batang umaapir sa iyo sa daan..Congtas Runmania..Can’t wait for the Los Baños Uphill.

  11. oo nga… yung mga batang umaapir… kulit nila. super saya^_^ Salamat sa magandang Singlet, Finisher Shirt at sa napaka astig na Medal! pati na din sa malamig na tubig, sa saging at sa Gatorade… nakadagdag ng lakas namin!

  12. Simply MAGNIFICENT! The route was challenging, people were all smiles, the kids on the road were pleasant and playful, the policemen were there to support the runners, people at the water stations were fast in making sure runners get enough hydration – well the last few stations ran out of water – but that is OK and somewhat expected. The view was AMAZING! Love the whole run.
    Medal was awesome and something you can really brag about!

    Some issues encountered though:
    1. The buses left really late – around 45mins – I hope next time everyone will come in on time and that it will just be a first come first serve basis to be fair to those who hurried to the site. We barely had time to change and do necessary warm ups. Sitting for 2.5 hours is no joke.
    2. Put on some lighting on the road. Please do EXPECT that there will be runners who’ll finish more than 3 hours, it was really dark going down from 6P.
    3. Please make sure that the kits are ready and those distributing them have enough lights. Their jobs is hard as is as runners started to complain about not getting a medal and/or finisher shirt.
    4. Provide better restrooms and portalets on the road.
    5. For the baggage areas, please provide light to those watching over the runners’ stuff. It was too dark.

    But I am really looking forward to another race in Caliraya. Thank you for the experience.

    Los Banos, see you in July 7 — sana matuloy!

  13. for everyone’s infos here and #10.jon kami yong car na nabuksan ang car at nawalan ng 3celfons,2-digicams at 2k cash, pero may isa pang binasag ang rear glass ng car malapit sa police station naka park at yong isa motorcycle nabuksan compartment nakuha i-phone4s nya as of the moment di pa namin kung may iba pang nawalan.Okay in fairness sa organizer okay ang route etc except fin/start ,stage and some route lightings,and the SECURITY of parking lots,nagpark kami kalapit ng mobile car ng police malapit pa sa police station sa akalang secure kami ,hindi pala ganun,nagfile kaming reklamo sa station sabi ba naman ng pulis “wag na lang kasi di na rin yun mapapabalik sa inyo.”shock kami,eh san pa kami magsusumbong o magblotter?we’re now thinking if we could join pa on their next events .Dami na naming lugar na natakbohan pero dun lang sa Lumban kami nakaranas ng ganun.Sorry organizers but our group is so much disappointed.

  14. 1st uphill run(21k).nice view and nakaka motivate mga kids na nag ccheer sa iyo tapos apir pa :-) ganda ng finisher shirt and medal..thank you po ;-)

    Ask ko lang po paano po macclaim yung naubusan ng finisher shirt and medal?

  15. Para fair naman po samin Organizers may request kaming Security sa Local Police and kay Provincial Director mas orient nalang sila next time. Ngyon nalaman namin na dapat mas patutukan pa namin security dagdagan pa namin ng Barangay Officials and mismong Caliraya Runners para triple na bantay sa next event.

  16. I don’t think it’s the organizer’s fault that the security in the parking area was lax. They did what they have to do. There indeed was security present. I think the problem lies within the police and security themselves. “Wag na lang kasi di na rin yun mapapabalik sa inyo.” from the police themselves? Wow. Just wow.

  17. ORGANIZERS, RUNNERS & OTHER CONCERNS – sana nag iwan ng lesson ang mga insidenteng nangyari sa caliraya uphill challenge nitong nakaraang Enero 26, 2013… ilang isidente ng nakawan ang nangyari sa bayan ng lumban. nakalulungkot lang na ang masayang pagtakbo ay sinabayan ng mga mapanlamang na tao na ginagawang propesyon eh ang mandukot na lamang at purwesyuhin ang kapwa… hindi ba dapat seguridad ang pangunahing pangangailangan ng ganitong malalaking event.. marahil naging maluwag ang seguridad at nag focus lamang sa naturang event at hindi binigyang panahon ang mga gamit at mga sasakyang naiwan ng bawat sumali sa pagtakbo…bagamat sa aking pananaw, hindi na dapat magsisihan kundi ang nais ko lamang ay magbigay kaalaman at ibahagi ang aking karanasan kasama ang tatlong kaibigan na kami ay nbiktima ng mga kawatan na ito ng basagin ang salamin ng bintana ng aking oto at pilit kinuha ang ilang gamit (CP & Cash). gyundin napagalaman nmin na hindi lang kami ang nabiktima ng mga mandurukot. inabutang kami ng ilang mananakbo (Taga-TAYABAS Quezon) sa istasyon ng pulis upang sila ay magreklamo din na di umano’y nanakawan at nabuksan din ang kanilang sasakyan. ang sakit lang isipin na kaming mga nakikiisa at nakibahagi sa ganitong event ay ang layunin lamang ay makatulong din makadagdag sa pondong malilikom para sa paglalaanan nito… lessons learned: hindi sa lahat oras na ang akala nating magandang lugar na ligtas ay Ligtas talaga… maging mapagmatyag at pahalagahan ang seguridad sa lugar na nasasakupan. magbantay ang dapat magbantay ika nga… lalo’t higit kasabay ng seguridad para sa mananakbo, higpitan ng seguridad ng gamit at sasakyang iiwanan… on my part, salamat na rin sa mandurukot at binigyan nyo parin kami ng kosiderasyon na iniwan nyo ang mhahalagang ID’s at lisensya naming mga nabiktima nyo… kasama na kayo sa dasal na sana huwag gawing libangan ang manlamang ng kapwa. Bagu-Bago mga kapatid… hangga’t hindi pa kayo sinisingil at hindi kayo ang magpapatigil sa pagtakbo ko…GOD BLESS YOU!!!

  18. thanks ng marami, its my 1st uphill run na challenge ako at medyo sumakit ung calve ko. late na nakarating pero sa ganda ng trail inabot pa din nmin ung ibang runners sa 1st water station. see u soon caliraya 3….

  19. bat ganun ung mga pulis, malamang pakana din nila yun. Lapit lapit di man lang nila na secured, kakahiya sila isumbong dapat kay TULFO ang mga yan. Para kasing imposible na wala sila kinalaman doon sa pagnanakaw. Nice route at challenging talaga,

  20. About sa security may kumauap na samin Col na hahawak ng Parking Security sa mga next event namin. Concern sha na hindi masira yun magandang advocacy ng group dahil lang sa mga mapag samantala. Regarding sa timing next Caliraya Uphill Challenge at Los Bano Uphill Challenge mag Timing chip na po tayo. Salamat sa support and God bless po!

    Inaayos namin ngyon yun race result hopefully matapos na ngyon araw.
