  1. POSITIVE: maganda ang route kasi may uphill.

    NEGATIVE: daming bandits

    KULANG ANG HYDRATION naabutan ko ice na lng ang pinapamigay, at pag dating sa finish line walang hydration na binigay!

    ang medal plastic?!

    kulang ang size ng mga singlet..

    LATE nag start.

  2. at bagito, ang bagal mo kase wake ka. dapat pag gun start balik ka agad wala naman kase timing map sa u-turn. masayado kang ambisyo gusto mo pang taposiin?

  3. Jearnest Sports Corp. nakalimutan niyo atang pasalamatan yung mga kawawang OFW na ginamit niyo para makapang holdap sa aming mga runners.

  4. well..its a good run for my new pr in16k 1hr.30plusmins…medyo nagtipid lang talaga organizer pagdating sa shirt,medals…drinks…inspite of many sponsors and a paid run for runners..buti na lang am ofw before that supports this events and hopefully sana at sana uli most of the money will benifits to this chosen charity! i admire MR.bearwin for being a good host and sportsman/runner din pala sya..galing mo bata! tnx for the run anyway!!! larry tuazon

  5. malaki ang finisher shirt, small na nga ang nakuha ko pero kahit kaming dalawa ng nanay ko ay kasya parin. bakit naman ganito ang kinalabasan ng run. walang nagbabantay sa uturn at wala ring timing mat. pangit pa ang medal nila napaka cheap. sayang lang ang 750 reg. for the 16 k. kahit hydration sa finish line ay wala na rin kaming inabutan. TANDAAN Nyo ito. Ang kapal nyo….

  6. MAGANDA ANG MEDAL, DI NAMN SYA PLASTIK, KAHOY PO SYA. KAYA MATIBAY DIN…. THE BEST ANG OFW RUN… KAHIT PA MARAMI NEGATIVE COMMENTS ANG MAHALAGA ENJOY ANG PAGTAKBO… HANGGANG SA UULITIN GUYS… :)

  7. Wla ako nakuhang lootbag but im happy to be part of this event.better next time n lang po sa jearnest…

  8. Haha. Even with my 43 lb (21 kilo) Cross, I got a time of 1:20:46. I was 316 out of 643 Runners. That’s pretty good. If I did not bring the Cross, I can bring it down to 45 minutes (Top 50 Runners) out of 643. That is exciting to consider! I should try some day. It’s been many years since I ran ‘naked’ (without the Cross).

  9. nag-enjoy ako. napansin ko lang hindi nagsasabit ng ribbon sa turning point. sa 5k ako tumakbo, sana umikot na lang ako sa 3k. haha!

  10. @Jearnest Corp: Dont take those negative comment as insult, Leksyon na sa inyo yun. Hindi kasi maiwasang magkaroon ng negative comments tulad nito:

    -Yung hydration station… nasa right side lahat kung saan may lilim… (and feeling ko parang walang standard na distance/sokay yung hydration location like: every 1.5/2km dapat. after U-turn wala nang hydration w/c is ito dapat ang pinakaimportanteng hydration station, ang mga elite runners kasi they use to skip 1,2 or 3 hydration kasi hinahabol nila yung PR.

    -Napakaliit ng interval ng each categories… kaya nagrereklamo ang 5k,10k at 16k runners kasi ang bigat ng traffic esp. dun sa u-turn ng 3k.

    -Meron dapat straw/sticker on U-turn… napakaraming nandaya… sobra…

    -Low quality MEDAL… at dapat binibigay ito sa runners pag dating ng Finish line…

    -One size fits all na Finishers Shirt.

    On the positive side:

    -Ok talaga para sa akin yung route sa Roxas blvd, wala masayadong Turns unlike BCG na dapat tumingin ka pa sa kaliwa’t kanan baka may parating na sasakyan.

    -Katuwa yung host aka Rantarantantan…

    If ever meron pang next event sana i-corrent na yung negative comments…..

  11. Maganda po ang Medal di lang siguro na apreciate ng iba dahil nasanay sila sa
    medal na metal ang OFW RUN MEDAL PO AY GAWA SA CHINA BALL CLAY na
    mas hamak na mahal ang presyo kaysa medal na metal na kasing laki rin niya
    3″ ang diameter di po sya gawa sa plastic di po sya kakalawangin like sa metal
    ang mahalaga na experience mo at naging kabahagi ng event,,,,,,

  12. kinapos pa ata sa preparation di na nakulayan ang medal,like what shown in the poster. kahoy ba ang medal? ceramic ata eh…otherwise congrats bcause i had fun

  13. to all runners, stop muna natin bangayan at sagutan dito…naisahan na nga tayo ng jearnest at tyak ay pinagtawanan nila tayo ngayon….total holy week naman, magpatawad muna tayo, ako nga 5 kaming tumakbo at 5 din kaming bigong ma enjoy ang fun run na yon dahil lahat ng negative comments nyo ay sya ring comment ko….nangyari na to, nalusaw na sa hangin pera natin kaya let there be peace for each and everyone lang muna, let’s be sensitive na lang at baka mag iba na naman ng name/s organizer na to at maulit na naman to…let’s forgive but not forget. GOD bless us all runners, see you.

    • @cabali-an

      di kayo naisahan cguro naghahanap kalang ng gaya ng nakukuha mo sa ibang events try mo kayang mag organized para malaman mo kung gaano kalaki ang budget na kakailanganin para lang sa ganitong kalaking event alam mo ba na rent palang ng Quirino Grandstand is 135k na 4 hrs lang yun di pa kasali kuryente dun mga
      equipments pa more than a milyon ang expenses tapos sasabihin mong naisahan ka eh wala pa sa katiting ang binayad mo,,,

  14. In my 3 years of competing in running events, ngayon lang ako nakatanggap ng PLASTIK na medal, tapos sasabihin nyo para sa mga OFW etong Run? Anu ang tingin nyo sa kanila mga Plastik din?? To the Organizers, I hope you would consider these comments & may this be a learning experience. Another thing, ang layo ng mga interval ng mga water stations, grabe ! tapos dami pang nakikiinom na mga Bandits or joggers along Roxas Blvd.. Hindi man lang sinisita ng mga Marshalls, kaya Marshalls ang tawag di ba? otherwise tawagin na lang natin silang mga Water boys…. I’m just stressing a point guys !! But again, thank God I finished the race..

  15. Ok now this is really something.

    If there are claims now that the organizers here are the same as Phoenix, Pure Concept, and JME (the ones who did the catastrophic Springboard Run, Enviro Run [kung saan uminom and mga runners sa tabo], and possibly the Challenge Run), I think we really need to be aggressive about this now. Hindi basta-basta ang pera dito.

    At kahit pa iba ang organizers nito, from the comments on the medals at shirt, pwede ba tayo humingi ng accounting statement or something kung bakit for the benefit of OFW itong run na ito?

    Hindi na ito isolated na pangyayari. Nagiging opportunistic na ang mga organizers. Maging matalino tayo kapwa runners.

  16. I have been running for years, a hobby I have learned from a friend, 20-years my senior who was a former high-ranking officer of the RUNNEX (Running Executives). He is actually very happy for the way running has become a national weekend pastime. He said that he remembers the time, decades back when only a few of them ran on weekends at the UP and the QC Memorial Circle and would arrange runs for their club in Antipolo and Subic. To them, running was for the love of the sport, apart from the fact that it gave tremendous benefits to their health. Nevermind that they did not have fancy singlets, hydrating stations, marshals, medals and lootbags everytime they run. They brought their own water canisters (tumblers) and kept watch of each other, on a “buddy system” each time they traversed the roads. Despite the absence of all the perks that we enjoy now, they just run- again for the love of the sport. They have been doing it for years.

    Do not get me wrong, I am not saying that to run for medals, records and the loot bags was the wrong motivation in running. In fact, I certainly believe that as runners who would spend precious hard-earned money to join fun-runs, we deserve to get the best from the organizers, and we definitely cannot help but compare one event from another. To reiterate, we pay them our hard-earned money.

    My point is that I actually dream of a time when we would all just run for the sake of our love for the sport, for our goal of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When after we run, we would not bother ourselves with too much whining about how poorly the singlets and medals were made, how deficient hydrating stations and marshals were, how the photographers supposedly targeted only the beautiful, how the timing device and results fared poorly in depicting the actual times of our runs. A lot of people seem to exert more effort in whining than the real energy they spent on the road. After all, isn’t it that we always say that running is the only sport where you get to compete with yourself? If the records did not reflect your real time, isn’t it that deep inside, you know that actually beat yourself the last time around?

    Last Sunday, a friend who is used to running 42K and 21K suddenly had the urge to join the OFW Run which he did not register on. He went to the registration booth and left with no other event to run to, decided to take the 3K event. He said that he just wanted to run and enjoy the perspiration brought about by the morning sunlight. However, as soon as he reached the finish line, he cannot help but be saddened by the “pitiful” stares of those who finished the 16K route. One even commented: “3k, ano yan joke?” After hearing such, he cannot help but say to himself: “so what if I just ran 3k, does that make me a lesser person than you are?”

    If we have reached the point when we don our running shoes anytime of the day just for the itch of running, with or without a fun-run, with or without the promise of a medal or a finishers shirt, when we manage to bring our own hydration bottles or an extra 20 pesos in our pockets to casually buy bottled water from a nearby sari-sari store, when we ourselves take extra precaution so as not to fall ill to the dangers that go with running in the busy streets of Metro Manila, or any photograph that would document our travails in the streets, then that is the only time we can say that we have reached the level of maturity that the real “old-time” runners have been practicing. Enough of the whining please- let us just run.

    By the way, that RUNNEX friend of mine, he still does not join fun-runs but still manages to squeeze in a 15 to 20K run every weekend. Not that he is “kuripot” to shell out a few hundred pesos to register, he has just reached a certain level of maturity that most of us have yet to achieve. Yet, I hope you get the chance to visit his house where you’ll wonder over pictures of his adventures at the Boston and New York Marathons.

    Cheers guys! This is just an opinion which I hope you would respect.

  17. i’ve done my part to warned you guys… hindi dahil may mga tao sa organizer na ito na involved sa pureconcept at team phoenix kundi dahil sa gunstart nila na 5mins internval / isang lane lang ng roxas blvd ang open at isa lang ang ruta na dadaanan… hopefully walang napahamak sa event na ito…

    after pure concept/team phoenix at jearnest ano pa kaya ang susunod… to organizer tigil ka na po sa pag organize ng event at wag ka napo magtago sa iba’t ibang name…… hanap ka po ng ibang way of leaving pag pera lang kasi ang uunahin mo to organized ng mga event at kumita eh magpafail ka for sure….

  18. I agree at comment #122. Running should not be about singlets, medals, shirts, loot bags. Running should be fun, whether you are an elite or a walker. kaya na rin tayo naloloko ng mga organizers kasi masyado tayong nabubulag sa awards na binibigay nila. bakit ba tayo nagiipon ng medalya? bakit ba tayo nagiipon ng shirt? nagagamit ba natin sila sa araw araw?

  19. We enjoy the run. :-D magulo nga mga booth. Maraming factor kung bakit di naging maayos… Pero kami ng grupo namin, we finished the race with joy. :-D we went home na masaya. kudos

  20. ang daming runners organizers must know kung ilan ang runners each category. Dapat di sila mauubusan ng finisher shirt kung nakalista naman ang mga nag paregistered at ang name namin ng groupnamin wala sa list ng result of events. buti na lang alam namin ang race bib number naming. medyo disorganized ang event na ito. Dun sa mga runner na nag lalakad na lang pag pagod na sana mag stay na lang sa pina right side are para naman di nakakaabala sa mga runners na continues running till the finish line. okay lang ang maglakad pag pagod na pero sana naman isipin ninyo yung ibang runners may naka pa mewang pa akala mo hari sa daan, may nagaakbayan pa! Kung may plan uli kayo next year make sure na maayos at ang bigayan ng medlas napakatagal at napakahaba ng pila. aalisin pa sa plastic tapos picture pa. siyam siyam ang pile tapos pa another pila sa finisher shirt diba pwedeng sunud sunod ang claim after sa medal next naman sa shirt or sa mga iba pang giveaways nyo para di na lalabas at another pila pa. Nagkakagulo tao.

  21. information for everyone:

    mga kasamang mananakbo, ito po ang cost ng singlet (more or less ng 10 to 20 pesos), finisher shirt and medal per piece po ito.

    good quality singlet @ Php120 me tatak na po and asian sizes (mas marami mas mababa or mura ang presyo)

    good quality finisher shirt @ Php180 me tatak na po and asian sizes (mas marami mas mababa or mura ang presyo)

    Medal:
    size na 2″ in diameter Php 3,000 sa 3″ na diameter Php 3,500 eto po yung gagamitin na pattern for all medals (one time cost lang po ito)

    Metal:
    2″ in diameter = Php 120 to Php 150
    3″ in diameter = Php 160 to Php 190

    ang bib number naman po kung kasama na ang timing device, yung first 5,000 free po yun sa package ng timing partner ng organizer and excess of 5,000 Php12 ang isa.
    ang cost po ng timing package is around Php100,000 to Php150,000, kung 3 categories ang event, me dagdag po per every category, say Php10,000. to Php 20,000. ang timing package po kasama na dun yung malaking digital time display sa start/finish arc.

    loot bags are normally given by sponsors, in some instances, meron na din po nagsponsor ng singlet, finisher shirt at medal, makikita po natin yung mga nakatatak sa mga singlet or finisher shirt, yun ang mga sponsors na merong share sa cost ng singlet, finisher shirt or even medals, pwede din sagot na nila yung total cost.

    energy drink are normally sponsored

    prices are shouldered by the major sponsor.
    special prices/awards are shouldered by other sponsors

    the expenses that the organizer get from the registration fees are:
    1) fees for route permit
    2) rental fee for the orange cones, metal barricades, baggage tents, podium, start/finish arc.
    3) manpower: marshals, motorcycle guides, personnel in the hydration area.
    4) water/water cups (but sometimes sponsored)
    5) tarpoulines, markers, loop cords provided to the runners

    in case sponsors are minimal, the organizer will share in every expenses or they will opt not to give other freebies sa event na i-organize nila.

    eto lang po.
    sa mga organizers ng run events, sana lang po, gawin nyo ang inyong best para sa kapakanan ng lahat ng sasali sa event na i-organize ninyo and bargain it to the sponsors to make the event, friendly, safe and well organize. please minimize negative impact to the runners, kasi po sa inyong pag organize nakasalalay ang kasiyahan at safety ng bawat isang runner/walker na sasali. sana po kung ngangako kayo, make sure na hindi ito mapapako. wag naman po puro kikitain ang kwentahin nyo, idamay nyo din po ang kapakanan ng mga runners/walkers na tumangkilik sa event na inorganize nyo. at kung magaling po kayo sumagot sa mga queries before the event, e dapat mas magaling kayo mag react after the event, you should know that you owe every runner a reply on their queries, di naman po bawat isa e sasagutin nyo, compile same questions and answer it one time, siguro naman po alam nyo na kung paano gagawin yung pagsagot na di kayo mahihirapan gawin.

    sa mga runners, maging mapili na po tayo sa sasalihan nating event, although mahirap talaga alamin ang bawat background ng mga organizers kaya mabuti pa talaga minsan takbo na lang tayo sa oval ng UP kung taga Q.C ka, libre pa, nga lang walang finishers medal, singlet, finisher shirt at hydration station, pero wala naman tayo sama ng loob, anyway, pawisan at na-train din tayo after the run, sa mga taga maynila naman, dun sa PICC or Quirino Granstand area, sa taga alabang, ok sa daang hari at daang reyna, pwede din sa ayala alabang, challenging ang route dun, merong uphills, sa taga sta rosa laguna, NUVALI is the best, sa ibang area, i am sure merong kayong matatakbuhan na safe ang area, tapos minsan na lang tayo sumali sa merong bayad na fun run, piliin natin yung siguradong ok.

    enjoy po natin ang medyo mahabang bakasyon, iwas po tayo sa aksidente and make this a bonding moment with our family kasama ang lahat ng mga mahal natin sa buhay.

    yun lang po, ang God bless po sa lahat.

  22. @ mer, comment # 122. very well said sir/ma’am. it’s exactly the comment i wanted to make if only i have your eloquence.

    • mali ka dyan lazy si marami ng kumuha kay Bearwin na maging host
      ng events gaya ng run for schoolar sa bgc , philhealth run, hyper sports run ,at iba pa wag kang mag conclude ng mali masama yan

  23. Infairness to us who pay to join these fun runs na mostly ang mamahal pero join pa rin, dapat naman sana well organized ang run. I agree that we just dont run for the medals, loots, etc.. but we cant help expect a well organized run kasi ang mahal ng fee kung takbo lang eh sana lower na lang ang reg fee. But tapos na so isip isip na lang sa sasalihan next time.

  24. Siguro kung afford ko lang makapunta at makajoin sa New York Marathon o Boston Marathon, sana di na ko sumasali sa mga events dito. Dito kasi pampered ang runners sa simula, merong singlet, finisher shirts, lootbags etc. Pero pag nasa event kana, madidisappoint ka lang. Kulang hydration, nauubusan ng shirts, low quality medals, etc. etc. Sa America wala silang ibibigay sayo kundi finishers medal, patunay na natapos mo ang marathon, overflowing ang hydrations, beer, minsan wine, food, at photobooths. Mura ang registration at maganda pa ang route.

  25. I got a Medium size Finisher shirt na kasing laki ng XL, tapos wala pa yung number at name ko sa Results ng Run..

  26. Positive naman tayu: Begginer pa lang po ako naka attend pa lang ako ng apat na events eto ung last andd sobrang na enjoy ko po itong event na ito.. i run sa 5k hindi naman nag kaubusan ng pocari at water sa race namen siguro kung ako din ang nasa 16k at 10k na walang tubig msakit nga sa loob un i cant run ng walang tubig… but sa mga past na attend ko sa gantong event eto ung best na nagenjoy talaga hindi ko nakuha ung loot bag but im very happy with gie aways na medal kahit plastic kasi other funrun walang ganto with matching finisher shirt pa medium ung kinuha ko but sobrang laki pero para sakin ok na un kesa sa MALILIIT ang sizes lalong hindi mo mapapkinabangan kung ganun atleast pag malaki pede ipa adjust pa kasi di naman parepareho ang sizes ng tumatakbo so ok na rin kasi kng tinipid nila sa tela mas lalong talo.. sobrang na enjoy ko po itong run na ito.. as in!
    sa feedback naman po.. di ko trip ung dancers nag palate ng takbo sila lang pala inaantay ung stretching nila imposible ang daming tao.. tapos magkaiba ung pila ng medal at shirt which is nakakadrain ng energy sa tirik na araw pag pila mo sa kabila which is siksikaan grabe nakaka suffocate pipila ka pa ulit sa medal.. pero all in all! Super saya talaga :) o by d way sobrang 2 thumbs up sa ginamit nilang time chip kasi ambilis ng results at complete details talaga! as in natuwa ako kasi nadissapoint ako sa last run ko sa run for juan na running mate na result walang pangalan wala rin race number no name lahat nakalagay anong sense kung ganun?? pero 2 thumbs up po talga :)

  27. @limitEDrunner

    ask ko lang sayo anong event at anong organizer ang nasalihan mo na pinayagan ng MMDA,/ CITY HALL,/ PNP TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT.at TMO, ang nabigyan ng permit para maipa close ang dalawang lane NG ROXAS BOULEVARD south at north bound lane from luneta to naia road meron ba
    magaling kalang mag salita kala mo papayagan ng city hall yung sinasabi mo
    south bound na ngalang ang sarado katakottakot ng puwesyo sa mga may sasakyan, napaka trafic na lalo na kung dalawang lane try mo kayang subukang
    mag tanong sa MMda , o sa city hall baka nananaginip ka lang na mangyayari ang gusto mo noon cguro may pinayagan pero ngayon malabo yang sinasabi mo
    gaya ng labo ng isip mo pinangangalagaan din ng city hall ang mga may sasakyan gaya rin ng mga events,,,,,

  28. Base sa survey 95 percent of the total participats nag enjoy at nagustuhan ang event compare sa ibang mga events natural lang na may mga negatives itoy
    nakakatulong para naman mai correct, halos lahat namang mga events nagkakaroon ng mga negatibo wala naman atang perpektong events halos lahat may mga lapses din sa mga negatibo view nyo nalang mga link ng mga picture
    tiyak ang makikita mo puro positibo ,,,,,,,,,,,,

  29. @chris

    #5 comment ikaw ang walang kwenta out of 4000 plus participants ikaw lang nag sabi nyan di mo ba nakita ang setup sa venue ma sasalamin mo dun ang ano
    klase ang organizer parang sa loob ng bahay kung ano makikita mo sa loob ng bahay nag rereplek yun sa nakatira sa bahay kung talagang kasali sa ofw run
    sa venue palang ng event malalaman mo na kung anong klase ang organizer
    kahit anong galing ng organizer kapag nasabotahe maraming factor na magkaroon ng mga magkulang we hope na mabago ang nag iisang isip mo

  30. OK YUNG RUN! PERO MASAMA YUNG LOOB KO T__T WALA MAN LANG STRING SA U TURN . 5K TINAKBO KO. AND I THINK PASOK AKO SA TOP 10. HALOS WALA PANG 10 PERSON YUNG NAUNA SAKEN. TAPOS PAG DATING SA RECORDS PANG 16TH AKO WEW? SAN DUMAAN YUNG IBA LUMIPAD? …HAYS SANA NEXT OFW RUN HINDI NA GANITO. . . . . . . .yun lang :(

  31. sobrang unorganized ang fun run na ito. walang barricades or marshall na naghihiwalay or nagbabantay sa pabalik at papunta na runners. akalain mo, marami na ang bumabalik agad without reaching the turning point at mismo sa harapan ko. kaya di ako sa satisfied na pasok lang ako sa top80 finishers. napakagulo ng pila sa freebies. yung finisher shirt, small nga ang nakuha ko pero 3x naman ang laki sa katawan ko. for the organizers, kung 10 ang pinakamataas na marka sa pagplano, cguro 1 lng ang maibibigay ko sa inyo.

  32. True to your words comment # 122 (mer). A very well said shared info. of a true runner. Just hoping that many among runners (elite, hardcore,newbie, occasional, etc.) will relate on this regardless of their own personal point of view(s)/goal(s) in running.

  33. May naamoy akong part ng Organizing Team ng Jearnest dito. Comment 137 to 139. Ang baho eh. Hahaha. Makapangbato ng mga salita sa mga runners halatang guilting guilty.

    Survey? 95 percent? Out of 4000 runners? Parang wala yata akong alam na paSURVEY after ng race. Kung meron man, isang malaking “0” ang ibibigay ko sa Jearnest Corporation. Hahaha.

  34. o bakit naman nung nag-uumpisa pa lang yung event eh jearnest sports ang sipag sumagot give encouragement sa mga sasali… ngayon eh nawala na gumamit pa ng ibang pangalan para ipagtanggol ang PALPAK na event na ito tinutulan pa yung pagsasara ng dalawang lane ng roxas blvd… tapos in the end eh aaminin din na merong pinayagan… magpakalalaki kayo mr. maranan wag kayong magtago sa ibang pangalan… mas lalo lang kayong masisira sa mga naloko nyo… nakakahiya kayo…

    • @limetedrunner

      pano mo nasabing palpak ang event na ito bakit sumali kaba ang hirap sayo di ka naman nag join sa event pero ikaw tong putak ng putak papano mong masasabing palpak ang ofw run eh di ka naman kasali tigil ka nga dyan ang hirap sayo panay ang banat mo eh wala ka naman sa list ng event nakikisawsaw kalang tigil ka nga

  35. yung tutulan nyang comment dito eh yun din ang monicker na gagamitin nya… nakakatawa hahahaha :-)

  36. Hi JSC, we almost forgot how to claim our finisher shirt? Naubusan kc kmi with my family. We ran different category and instructed our younger ones to wait for us in the finish line so that we will get the medals, fin shirt all together, but to our dismay we ran out of fin shirt, never mind the loot bags and other freebies just the finisher shirt n LNG po pra sa niece & nephew ko. Thanks

  37. Ung mga ndi po nabigyan ng finisher’s shirt ng 5K kc po naubusan, kelan po mabibigay? Sbi kc ng mga ngorganize mgttxt n lng dw cla pg meron na, aun. Sna po asap. Tnx!

  38. Hahaha. Ang dali lang pala malaman kung sino yung mga nag-Uturn sa hindi tamang lugar. Check the results. Tapos compare the “Official Time” at “Total Time”. Kung malaki ang diperensya, alam na. Hahaha. This is not to judge other runners. Baka kasi nag Uturn na sya kasi masama yung pakiramdam, or something. May kanya kanya naman tayong reason. Ayun. :)

  39. @boyet, @limitedrunner: nakakatuwa ang jearnest, nag tataka lng ako bakit si bearwin ang host ng mga palpak na run, may naamoy din ako??

  40. Wow…dami kong nabasa ritong messages from passionate runners…i can feel that brothers and sisters. Ok yan running for love…passion ika nga. Gusto yan ni kulot $running$for$love$. Pero tignan naman natin ang ibang anggulo. Sa totoong buhay maraming nagsasamantala magkamal lang ng salapi. Sa kasalukuyang panahon nariyan ang akyat bahay, dugo-dugo, budol-budol, pyramid scam, mga corrupt sa pribado at publikong opisina, kongreso at senado at maraming marami pang iba. Sympre may roon din naman parehas na indibidual sa sakalukuyang pahanon. Ang sa akin lang naman ay baka yang passion natin sa running o sa ano pa mang sports ay nagagamit na sa maling pamamaraan ng mga organizers na ang front ay healty lifestyle or beneficiares like OFW, typhoon victim, orphan, church, scholar and others….baka lang naman po. May kasabihan nga tayo: “maging mapanuri, mapagmatyag, mapangahas…eto po si kuya “kim” matanglawin”.

    Mabuhay po tayong lahat mga runners.

    “Hanggat may magsasamantala sa mga runners, hindi namin kayo tatantanan, excuse me po” – mickey enriquez

  41. The worse thing na magagawa ng organizer after ng event ay….. makipagtalo sa mga runners. Kung sino ka mang taga Jearnest ka, alam natin malaki ang ginagastos sa running events, kaya nga MADAMI KAYONG SPONSORS eh. Kung nalugi man kayo, di naman namin kasalanan yun kasi nagbayad naman kami. Hahaha.

  42. Happy Easter everyone!
    We would like to extend our deepest thanks to all our OFW RUN Participants.

    To all your wonderful comments, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
    To all those not-so-nice comments, we respect them especially the constructive criticisms.
    What saddens us are the malicious accusations being thrown upon us. We have the best of intentions, and if there were things that did not go what we had planned them to be and what you have expected them to be, we extremely did not want it that way and we sincerely apologize to all of you.
    It has been an honor and privilege to have served all of you to the best of our abilities! Our heartfelt thanks to all of you…

  43. Happy Easter everyone!
    We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all our dear OFW RUN Participants.
    No words can express our deepest gratitude to all of you.
    To all your wonderful comments, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
    To all your not-so-nice comments, we respect your opinions especially those constructive criticisms.
    What saddens us are the malicious accusations being thrown upon us. We believe that freedom of expression should not be abused by maligning the personalities and organization instead of focusing on the happenings of the event itself.
    If there were things that happened that we have not planned them to be, we assure you that we did not want them to happen.
    And if there were things that happened that you did not expect them to be, we sincerely apologize to all of you.
    Needless to say, we have the best of intentions.
    From the bottom of our hearts, it has been an honor to have served all of you!
    God bless us all! :)
