    • This does it for me. I’m officially out of RU2 and all other RunRio-organized events, except Milo. I don’t have a problem with people grabbing the opportunity to make easy money, after all, joining is voluntary, but I take exception when it undermines legitimate advocacies – hence, RunRio, please respect the legacy of MILO!

      On the other hand, I think maganda na rin at nagiging ganito ang pricing ng takbo. I remember not so long ago 300-400 makakapag-marathon ka na. This will hopefully allow runners to rediscover the true joy of running: exercise and spending a pleasant time being out in the sun, or moon, or stars, for free!. At ang matitira sa mga events na ito ay ang mga medal at loot hunters at ang mga “runners” na party ang hanap. Hindi ba nakakatawa na ang initial reaction dito at sa MIlo sa pagtaas ng presyo ay humingi ng finishers shirt at medal?!

      PS. Libre pa rin tumakbo sa Roxas Blvd/BGC/Oval o wherever trip mo tumakbo!

      • Charity Events ito pero kapag RUNRIO ang nag organize Negosyo Event na… cnira mo lang Kulots ka ang legacy ng MILO wala kaminmg pakeelam sa Finishir shirt makatakbo lang kami masaya na pero tumakbo sa RUNRIO wag na lang… magpapagod lang ako para sa bulsa mo dun na lang ako sa makakatulong sa kapwa ko Pinoy!

      • I don’t have a problem with people grabbing the opportunity to make easy money – you think easy money? Kung namamahalan ka, pwede ka naman hindi sumali. Sabi nga sa baba, nakapag try ka na ba mag organize ng sarili mong FunRun? At anong respect the legacy of MILO ang pinagsasabi mo dyan? Kung magsalita ka kala mo alam mo na lahat ang bawat sulok ng events organizing. Makapang Bash lang talaga e

      • Everybody has his/her own opinion, don’t be bitter if yours doesn’t align with others.

      • Sige nga red magreply ka dito sa sinabi ni Tubong Probinsyano, Intindihin mo mabuti ha.

        To RED and to all the runners na tumitira sa mga ORGANIZED RUNS like RIO:

        Naniniwala ako sa sinasabi mo na thougts about sa pagmahal ng runs pero ang tanong ko nakapag-organize ka na ba ng running events? Naiintindihan mo ba ang mga ganitong event ay may mga kagastusan din na hindi lamang sa medal at singlet na pumupunta. Bakit mahal ang mga run rio events or like Condura Skyway events kasi lahat yan binabayaran ang serbisyo.

        VOLUNTEER? Can you relay on volunteers a kung hindi magising ng maagap ay ibibitin ang event mo. Kung nagkamali ay wala kang rights para i correct sila. Bakit kasi nga volunteers?

        Paano yung maintenance ng website,yung mga tao na nakadepende sa industriya ng Events Organizing. Why Im telling you this Red and to all negative minded runner and people here.

        Ang isang event ay reflection ng Excellence at piangbubuhusan ng panahon at oras. Kaya sa iyo try to organize a run,try it baka magka idea ka lang kung pano.

        Hindi yung puchu-puchu na fun run hah, yung run na ka tie-up ay malalaking kumpanya na nangangailangan ng ibat-ibang kolaborete. meron naman na mga runs na mga nasa lib lib na lugar ahh kaya lang hindi meetable ang pinakang goal na yan. Remember jan ay hinahabol ang 8,000 na mga benefeciaries world wide. Mag-aral ka ng mATH at logic maiintindihan mo..

    • sana may finishers medal.. maxadong mataas presyo eh.. may ppuntahan pero dapat may balik prin..

  1. hahaha! kulotski strikes again, kaya akala ng iba mura pa rin ang milo kahit nag mahal eh, kasi nga ang mahal na ng ibang events, ang hindi nila napapansin masyado ng mahal yung ibang running events kaya nagmumukhang mura, sooner or later the trending increase in reg fee will pull him down, yung paraan nya ng pagyaman yun din magpapabagsak sa kanya

  2. Last year ata may medal at madami laman ang loot bag. Sana ganun pa din kahit nagpalit ng organizer.

  3. Aarg! Mahal..but if it says “all proceeds” will go to its beneficiary pede kong pag isipan pa (:

  4. @banesto pero sa presyong to ni coach rio.. dapat both medal and finisher shirt meron ang runners.. isa narin yung way para makahakot ng maraming runners at the same time malaking fund for the beneficiary of the event..

    @coach rio pataas po tayo ng pataas ah.. haha wala naman pong ganyanan.. imbes po magkaron pa po tayo ng mga newbie runner eh mawalan na..

    • Time will surely come 8 when some runners truly understand why there is a frequent increase of reg. fees. Considering the points mentioned by joseph above, other factor is due to high demand of runners for medal, FS, loot bags/freebies, etc… This is what I noticed for most of the runners asking for those nowadays and yet no one can ever blame them because those things are they want and they are happy for it. The truth is, even without those demands, we can still run with or without a cause. Medal & FS are only a reward for a runner who strive really hard to get those. I’m not against for any RD or RO. But for my own personal point of view, I will never run nor join in any running event if I found it too expensive – that’s all. We have our own freedom to choose which is right for us and not to make us in burden for the high cost. Besides, we do have our own meaning & definition WHY WE RUN.
      As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
      God Bless.

  5. Kung maka-react naman kayo e parang sapilitan kayong pinasasali sa mga running events. Kung ayaw niyong gumastos e pwede namang hindi sumali!

  6. thank you for the feedback and comments. for those inquiring about the finisher’s medal, yes we do have that for all 21k finishers. all proceeds will benefit children assisted by World Vision – worldvision.org.ph

    • kung kayo na lang mag organize ng Running Event e di sana ndi na namuhunan yan si KULOTS at mas mababa yang registration fee at mas marami pang makakasali….

  7. What a big turn off…na excite pa naman ako nung nakita ko sa homepage tapos June 23 pa date. Nung nakita ko ung prices tapos organized ni rio nanlumo ako. wtf! Wait na lang uli ng ibang event. Gusto ko pa naman sumali sa World Vision kasi maganda ung advocacy nila.

    • SAME HERE,WALA KASING TAKBO SA JUNE 22 AND 23. TAPOS NG MAKITA KO NEW!!! OK!!! KASO PRICES…OK???…ISIP ISIP MUNA….SANA MAY SUMBAY NA MURA HE HE HE

  8. This is one run that should not be missed. Na enjoy ka na sa takbo nakatulong ka pa sa mga bata nangangailangan!

  9. for me, kahit ganyan ang price as long as organized naman yung event why not? I joined some events na mura nga magrereklamo ka naman sa sistema pag tumatakbo ka na and meron same price kulang kulang naman din ang serbisyo like hydration, baggage etc.

    • Pwedeng organized pero maayos pa rin ang price. Yakult 16k is 300-400 in the last 10 years and is one of the most highly-organized running events. No fuss lang, run, finish, get awards kung meron, get your shirt and Yakult, and stay a bit for some chat and to look-see. This is nothing personal, and I am sorry to take such a sledgehammer approach, but ang problema sa mga runners e they think party o fine dining ang running events kung saan dapat pampered sila.

      • Kaso isa ring malaking sugal ang pagsali sa affordable events. Iilan lang ang affordable pero maayos (katulad ng Yakult). OFW Run, anyone? Affordable at overhyped pero in the end biktima pala ang mga tumakbo.

      • Mang Joe, pwede pa rin naman po tumakbo lang ng libre. At wag tayong lumayo sa issue, ang sinasabi kong problema dito ay ang unchecked na increase ng price, especially ng advocacy events na hindi naman ang advocacies and magbebenefit kundi ang organizers, at increase ng price na encouraged by runners na ang tingin sa running ay shopping ng freebies.

      • then organize your own race event and let’s see how it turns out given your preferred registration fees. why can’t runners see the bigger picture and just think of yourselves? increasing prices are inevitable, just like all other life necessities. basic economics.

      • Anong proof mo sa “na hindi naman ang advocacies and magbebenefit kundi ang organizers”?

  10. parang mas maganda kung affordable ang run….para at leat marami ang sasali at lalaki ang mapupunta s charity?! kapag bumaba ang presyo…sasali ako…….para kasing pang-middle class lang ito?!

  11. Sana naman hindi na hinahawakan ni Rio ung mga ganitong fund raising event, nagmamahal lang eh, naging successful naman yung event na to last year kahit hindi hinawakan ni Rio eh. Nagmamahal lang yung reg fee. Para sakin kahit gawing mababa ang reg fee nito malaki pa rin ang malilikom at mapupunta sa mga beneficiary, bakit kamo? kasi madame ang sasali eh. Yun lang yung point ko. Pero kung d na mapapaltitan si Rio sa pag oorganize nito eh sana alisin na nya yung medal or finisher shirt na magpapadagdag lang sa cost at para mababaan ang registration, ok na yung may tamang hydration, safe route. Gawin na lang natin tong purong run for a cause. Wag ng haluan pa ng kung ano anong gimik na mga freebies, etc. Salamat. :D

  12. 100 pesos increase from last year. And runrio events are known for well-organized events. I think this is reasonable guys. And secondly, all proceeds will go to charity. I think nit-picking na lang yung iba dyan na nagrereklami sa price.

    • Basahin mo ang form. NOT “all proceeds will go to charity”. In fact walang pinagbago sa dagdag sa ibibigay na sapatos. Nagmahal lang talaga.

      • anong sapatos? Also sabi sa taas “All proceeds of the event will help more than 8,000 children this year through World Vision’s Child Sponsorship Program.”.

        I’ve been a World Vision Sponsor for a year and this is a good advocacy.

  13. Very obvious that this is going to be a fund raising project for a good cause, let’s not complain about the joining fee.

  14. alin pong form? tsaka san po galing yung “NOT”? kasi wala naman po akong nababasang “NOT” dun sa nakasulat sa taas…. ^_^ san din po galing yung sapatos? may ibibigay po sila na sapatos dito sa run na ‘to??? :)

    tsak kung nagrereklamo po tyo sa price…hmmmm, may naisip po akong posibleng solusyon :) EDI WAG NYO PO TANGKILIKIN YUNG MGA PATAKBO NG RUNRIO!!! :) kung walang tatangkilik at tatakbo sa mga patakbo ng runrio, baka i-reconsider nila na babaam yung price… tapos ang tangkilikin po natin e yung mga mura na patakbo —- basta po kung medyo pangit yung patakbo e wag din tayong umangal (mura e)… yun lang po… salamat! ^_^

  15. Pwede naman ngang hindi sumali kung namamahalan. Walang namimilit. Hayaan niyong ang mga gusto ng freebies, medals, finisher shirts, etc. ang magsunog ng pera sa mga mahal na patakbo. Sa dami ng sumasali e kahit i-boycott ng iilan ang mga event ni Rio, marami pa rin ang kasali. Dahil dito tataas pa rin nang tataas ang fees dahil in demand. Kahit mahalan e alam nilang marami pa ring kakagat.

  16. magaling magorganize ang Run Rio. All proceeds will go to World Vision. Support the World Vision Run 2013.

  17. World Vision Run 2013 is a fund raising project for a good cause.
    8,000 children are still waiting to be sponsored. Support World Vision Run 2013.

  18. The rates last year were:

    500m PHP 300.00 (not available this year)
    3km PHP 550.00 (not available this year)
    5km PHP 650.00
    10km PHP 750.00
    21km PHP 850.00

    Therefore, the only increase was in the 21 kilometers with an additional PHP 100.00. The five and 10 kilometers remains the same.

    Last year’s organizer was Pep Squad Events and Marketing.

  19. Its understandable, the sentiments of those who just wanted to make sure that they’re getting their money’s worth… other than their passion for running and supporting a good cause. But this is definitely one legitimate event that will make every runner’s kilometer count and go a long way to help more kids thru World Vision. Even Coach Rio is pitching in on this cause guys! He’s helping WV not for the money, but for the kids. Hope we all do the same. LETS RUN BECAUSE WE CARE. :)

    • kahit san anggulo tignan…talaga naman may ni-negosyo ng organizer. opinion ko lang po iyon. salamat po.

      • This is maybe your opinion pero tumingin ka din sa facts. ALL proceeds will go to charity. Saang part naging negosyo eto?

    • hi brother rodeo…i respect your side and also i respect you as a person. sa aking ulit opinyon kung hindi ganito kamahal ang reg fee…mabibigyan mo ako ng opportuinity na makatulong…and i believe na mas marami sasali at mabibigyan din ng opportunity ang maraming runners na makatulong…

  20. ang ibang race event mahal din nman ndi pa well organize minsan pareho pa ng price sa runrio…in fairness kay kulot maganda mga patakbo nya wala nmang pilitan sa pagsali sa mga race event ni Rio kung ayaw nyo sumali e di wag..kung tumaas man ang reg fee sumasabay lng sa pagtaas ng mga bilihin..sweldo lng yata ang ndi tumaas yearly

  21. kahit kelan di kayo pinilit ni rio pasalihin sa mga patakbo nya. kung ayaw nyo di wag kayo magparegister yun lang yun….saka ang world vision din ang nagdedecide kung kanino nila gusto ipa-organize patakbo nila.

  22. wish ko lang sana pede makuha ang racekit on raceday,ang mahal ng pamasahe sa laguna pa po ako… kung pwede lang po sana…

  23. i’ll join this run… nag enjoy na nakatulong pa…

    maliwanag pa sa sikat ng araw na maraming kapos palad na kababayan natin ang natutulungan ng world vision..

    swerte pa rin tyo patakbo takbo lng..

    kaya sali na!!

  24. of all the runs I have joined these past years, I consider this as the most legit one. If you are cringing on reg fee and don’t think its worthy, then simply don’t join.

    There are runs I don’t join bec I find just too hyped and their causes unclear (whether reg fee expensive or reasonable), but I don’t think Im better than those who joined.

    Really, it comes down to personal choices and principles. But I say, the universal rule of respecting each other must be observed by all.

  25. wala po bang ibang site to claim the race kit? ang layo naman kasi ng BGC para lang iclaim ang kit… sana merong medal for the 10k… we’ll wait for the update muna before ako magregister.

  26. daming reklamador. kung namamahalan kayo, wag kayo sumali.

    subukan nyo mag organize ng running event, maiintindihan nyo din kung bakit umabot sa ganyan ung presyo.

    hanap kayo ng hanap ng kung ano ano sa race (medal, finisher shirt, singlet, hydration, saging, loot bags, etc.) eh saan naman kukunin yang mga yan kung hindi sa registration, kung gusto nyo ng mura, eh di sa mga di kilalang events kayo sumali ng makita nyo difference.

    • You’re right, marquez. Some of our running enthusiasts have no experience yet in organizing an event like this that’s why they have negative feedback particularly on the price of registration. Let’s just understand them and let’s have fun during the event. Let’s support its GOOD CAUSE.

  27. Everything is moot and academic…madami naman sumasali kahit mahal…kung ayaw nyo magbayad mag_bandit kayo!!!pwede naman at libre ang lansangan para tumakbo…gamitin nyo yung 200 pesos nyo para sa tubig,marshalls,saging sa daan kung meron kayo mahahanap…

  28. To RED and to all the runners na tumitira sa mga ORGANIZED RUNS like RIO:

  29. RunRio coach RIO napakagaling mag-organize ng event,first time qng sumali s RunUnited sus grabe ang hydration water,gatorade ang bilis pa nilang nilinis ang mga kalat ng mga reklamador na runner…haha! basta RunRio ang nag organize ng event sasali na ko… WorldVision buti n lng si coach Rio kinuha nyo… =D

    • preho tayo @johndbiker first time ko rin RUNRIO event.. husay talaga at talagang msasabing nabalik lahat at napawi lahat ng pagod at uhaw sa way ng paghhandle nila ng event.. kaya nga sasali rin ako dito eh.. pero sana may finisher shirt..haha :)

  30. Sabi nga, you get what you pay for. I’ve joined Runrio races like Nike, Milo at RU at ang masasabi ko eh maayos at hands-on siya sa pag-organize ng running events. I don’t get bakit siya ang binabash pag mahal ang prices when there’s so many things to consider which was already explained above. :)

    • O san na si RED na mayabang na elite at ung ibang bashers? Tameme kayo o nagaantay lang kayo ng another RUNRIO event na aalipustahin nyo? Sana makilala ko kayo para pag nakita ko isa sa inyo sa isang RUNRIO event……

  31. nagpa register na ako kahapon sa 5k run at eto ang pinakaunang takbo ko kay RIO…Sana di ako ma disappoint (^_^) . give you comments after the race

  32. wala pa ba tayong promo dyan?hehe BUY 1 FREE 1..hehe gusto ko kasing isama brother ko eh..haha
    kasi kinuwento ko sa kanya yung experience ko sa Run United na umaapaw sa hydration and iba talaga compared sa ibang running event.. iba pag RUNRIO.. :)

  33. Wala nman pong pumipilit sumali kung namamahalan kau sa presyo.. Hindi din nman nten alam bka nagmahal ang bayad sa mga marshalls at mga permit sa mga RUNS imposible nman na wala din silang gastos jan.. Tsaka may charity nman pinupuntahan yung proceeds.. Kung namamahalan po kayo e d wag sumali.. opinion ko lng to mga idol
    Enjoy running

  34. gawin niyo na pong 1k yung bayad, pero sana may finisher shirt…:)) pleaseeeeeeee!!!!!!

    • i agree supercaloy. Khit taasan ng 50 bsta ngkaron lng finisher shirt. :)
      waiting prin ako sa update kung mgkkpromo and mgkakafinisher shirt eh.hehe

      • eight, wag kanang mag w8t magreg. kana mas maraming tao mas masaya, importante naka tulong tayo kahit sa maliit na bagay sa mga batang nanganga-ilangan. World Vision world wide na organization yan kaya makaka siguro ka n ang proceeds e siguradong mapupunta sa mga “FILIPINO CHILDREN” see you there guys! GODbless!

  35. OO nga. Sa mga marereklamo, wag na sumali kung mahal. Tamo ako, hindi sasali, pero wala naman kayong pakialam. :D

  36. Puro kayo medal at finisher’s shirt! Kung wala pera di wag kayo sumali at mang hingi ng kung ano ano. Kung gusto nyo magka medal, eh di sumali kayo sa 21K, hindi yung puro 5K at 10K lang kayo na mura tapos uubusan nyo pa ng saging yung mga 21K runners. Kung hindi nyo kaya tumakbo ng 21K eh di wag kayo sumali at mag praktis na lang kayo libre dyan sa tabi tabi. Kahit 50 pesos pa ipadagdag nyo, laking bawas naman yan sa proceeds na mapupunta dapat sa mga bata. Wag na kayo sumali please, para alam namin hindi mga mukhang loot bag yung mga kasama namin sa race!

    • Alienware the 2nd in the making! Eto nanaman sa damutan ng saging, hahaha, parang naging isyu na to dati eh. Pagkakaalam ko d naman naglalagay ng saging sa ruta ng 5k and 10k eh, usually na sa 10km pataas nilalagay yung mga saging since sila yung may kailangan nun dahil sa haba ng tinatakbo nila (16km, 21km, 42km categories). Kaya wag mong isisi sa mga 5k and 10k ung pagka ubos ng saging nyo, haha. Kung may saging man sa ruta ng 5k or 10k, siguro para sakanila yun, bigay ni organizer. :P

      • haha.. sorry, di ako kumakain ng saging at umiinom ng gatorade.. i have my own gels..

    • naghihinakit si unggoy sa saging. lol. You’ve been a newbie once so better keep your words sweet para everybody happy.

  37. Here is my reason why I feel strongly about this race as a runner and as a person, http://cheapanggangdiva.wordpress.com/2013/06/09/why-i-feel-strongly-about-this-race/.
    I don’t care what others say. Been that route for how many times this kind of things happen in all fronts of anything running ever since I started joining in one and reading and joining forums. I have my own reasons for joining races, my own criteria. But I believe stronly in this one.

  38. Wow kung mkapagsalita nman parang papatay pati kming 10k lng ndadamay.

    Msama po bng magtanong at umasa an mga newbies sa race nato? Sory kung hindi pa nmin kaya mag 21k kc hindi p kmi batikan ktulad nyo. Hay kahit pano nakakamotivate ang medal para sa mga bago.

    • 1dong relax lang po wag po ninyong sirain ang positive vibes nyo, for a good cause po itong event n to kaya makaka-asa po kayo n ang pera at ang takbo ninyo ay hind masasayang,nung sumali po ako sa NATGEO wla pong medal lahat ng category s 21K po ako pero masaya na po ako n malaman n nakapagtanim sila ng tatlong puno sa konting pera na naiambag ko sa bansa natin,almost 12K runners po ang nka pag-contribute sa kalikasan natin,ganun din po ito, positive vibes lang po tayo! GODbless!

  39. Pass muna…sa milo lang kami magkikita ni Kulot.dami naman ibang run na pde masalihan.pag kulot sa_-_-

  40. done registered on line….gusto ng katawan kong tumakbo….kahit mahal p sya…may pang bayad ako eh..he he he..bisyo ang takbo sa akin..

  41. sa organizer, sir RIO, at sa world vision

    pwede pong mag dagdag ng 50 pesos, para mag karoon ng finisher shirt yung 21K,

    suggest lang po.

  42. Sana hanggang June 17 pwede magparegister para isang puntahan na lang sa katipunan para magparegister dito, MILO at 2xu.. sana di mabasa ito ni misis.. baka mayari ako hehehehe

  43. Napaka simleng palewanag po walang pilitan kung walang pera magsamasama ang walang pera at mag tayo ng group mog jogging na lang kung papawis lang naman ang habol diba good health lang naman ang gusto tapos gustong tumulong direktang mag bigay sa word vision

  44. bukas nalang ako paparegister sa run nato.. isasabay ko na sa milo..hehe
    uuyyyy! mga katakbuhan ano pong distance nyo sa milo?

    pa-add narin po ko sa fb.. para dagdag motivation sa pagtakbo.. maraming friends sa facebook. :)

    ahsi_eight@yahoo.com

  45. di na ako dito nag pareg… na short sa budget.. done with MILO and leg 3 ng 2xu… ganda ng singlet nito.. panalo talaga,, sayang lang kulang sa budget…

  46. I registered for this event because of the cause (charity). But I agree that runrio races has been very pricey kaya hindi ako sumasali sa ibang runrio races na. hindi naman po yun dahil wala kaming pambayad. I recognize the fact na maganda mag-organize ang runrio pero grabe lang talaga yung fee. There are other events na nasalihan ko na maganda ang pag-organize at reasonable ang regs fee like QCIM and bull run, which are not runrio organized races.

    Another thing, yung pick up of kits. Mahal na nga yung regs fee, additional cost pa yung pagkuha ng race kit sa BGC. I get the point on the organizer’s part na mas convenient for runrio ang pag-distribute ng kits ng 1 or 2 days lang sa iisang venue kasi mas controlled nila. Pati yung pagpapagawa ng singlets and other items, mas makakatipid sila kasi kung ilan lang ang registered, yun lang ang ipapagawa, no excesses. But this is not convenient for runners. I mean, kaya ka magre-register halimbawa sa SM North or Sta. Rosa kasi yun ang pinakamalapit at convenient sa’yo pero to go to BGC on a different date just to pick up the kits is very inconvenient! Magastos po sa pamasahe at oras. Dati naman possible na you get your kit upon registration. O kaya kung ibang date ipi-pick up, dun din sa venue kung saan ka nag-register kasi yun ang pinaka-convenient sa’yo. Sana i-consider din ng runrio yung side ng participants. Just my two cents.

    • As much as possible, I wanted to avoid having to post a comment in this. But then again, having learned the art of distressing, I would actually stress myself even more if I don’t let this out of my chest.
      For a year now, I have tried to avoid the runs organized by RIO. Without necessarily boasting, I am not one who would mind having to pay for the registration fees no matter how pricey they were, after all, it is the sport that matters. Although to be quite honest, I thought even then that the registration fees of RIO were really expensive, apart from the fact that when you examine the lootbags they give away, you would be amazed by the way they seem to shortchange the runners. I mean, a few pieces of sachets of shampoo and medicines? I could only offer a sheepish grin everytime I saw the contents of the lootbag. But then again, I did not mind because to reiterate, it is not the lootbags, giveaways, singlets and perks that attract me to a particular run- it is the love of the sport. Ultimately, I gave up having to take the lines just so that we can get the lootbags. I did not want to see anymore. It is enough that we perspired and enjoyed, after all this is why we do it, di ba? We even travel out of town just to join runs, thus, spending isn’t really important- for the love of the sport.
      What threw me off the RIO runs were when for three instances, I saw him shout at the runners when he was directing them to follow his instructions. The first time I saw him do this, I just set it aside thinking that maybe the “makukulit” runners were really getting to his nerves. But when I saw him do this the 2nd and 3rd times, particularly to two runners who almost shed tears out of embarrassment, I realized that it was really his style. Nevermind that the runners must be too tired to immediately accede to his instructions, some may actually have failing senses already because of the tireness. He really had to shout at them. He did not mind that these are customers who spent hard-earned money just so that they can join the runs. It must be beyond RIO to ponder on the realities that the money paid by these people, more or less contributed to the money he used in purchasing his porches- the ones he brandish late night at the BGCs. Talk about being sensitive to the emotions of your customers, talk about courtesy and politeness, talk about the principle “the customer is always right”. This threw me off- I told myself to stay away from his runs. But while this decision was personal, I was decent enough not to influence my other colleagues.
      This week, my partner who works in the evening, registered us to join the World Vision Run when she was off from work. Because she did not have much time to check, it was already late when she realized that the run was organized by RIO. And as we expected, the registration fees were pricey again- but more than that we are again faced with this unconventional method, characteristic of a RIO Run of claiming your race kits on a later date, in a designated place. Unlike other runs when you get to receive your kits upon registration, RIO does use the unconventional, requiring you to report to his designated date and place to claim for kits that you have earlier paid for.
      Knowing RIO’s legions of defenders, I am sure that they will ask “What is the problem with this?” Oh there is!! For one who is quite busy with work just so that he could earn himself a living, he would have to worry about having to go to RIO’s designated date and place to get the kits. In the process, he would have to worry about how to squeeze into his already busy schedules a trip to RIO’s designated place, spend additional money for fuel and possibly snacks because you must be hungry already by the time you receive the kits. And for those who cannot leave the office, they would have to take time to open their emails, print the confirmation blah blah and then execute an Authorization Letter authorizing someone to receive the kits on his behalf. By the way before I forget, you also would have to give an extra amount to your representative for his taxi fare and meryenda. If you don’t call these inconveniences, then you must be one with patience reaching the heavens.
      If you are one who had all the time because you just stay home, isn’t it inconvenience too that you had to leave home, miss a really funny episode of Eat Bulaga, travel to RIO’s designated place and spend extra hours and money with all these traffic? For RIO’s legions of defenders, whether you admit it or not, you too are inconvenienced by these! It cannot be denied that all of these inconveniences translate to extra added costs to the already pricey registrations of RIO’s runs. To reiterate, for all the legions of RIO’s defenders, you cannot deny the fact that if the other runs are able to issue the kits upon registration, why can’t RIO? Is there reason behind having to make the runners within striking distance from his stores in requiring them to go to his designated time and place to get the kits? Is this “business technique”? Without a doubt, these are inconveniences that only the “blind” or stricken with “blind adulation” would ignore.
      May pinanggagalingan po ang concern kong ito. Because my partner arrives from work at 3 AM in the morning when I am asleep, she is not able to remind me that I have to open my email and print it together with an Authorization just so that she can get the kits. And because she did forget to remind me, when I left for work today sans the email and authorization, you can just imagine how much inconvenience it was for us to meet halfway today, find internet connection, with all our busy schedules just to comply to RIO’s unconventional methods.
      I am sure may mamimilosopo na naman na magsasabing “hindi naman kayo pinipilit na sumali dito eh” or “subukan nyo kayong mag-organize ng runs”. I hope before you make such commentaries, you would bother to read the entirety of these comments first just so that you would know where we are coming from. Likewise, before you utter such remarks, I hope that you will find time too, to ponder whether you have not been inconvenienced by RIO’s unconventional methods, be it in the form of cost or time. And if you are not, I am glad for you. You must be gifted with patience that is beyond this earth. And since you have this kind of patience, maybe you can ponder too whether there is a need to be sensitive to the needs of the runners, RIO’s customers, in alleviating them of the inconveniences. They are the lifeblood of RIO’s business, the ones who contribute to the success of his company, and as such, are they not worthy or deserving of being excused from these inconveniences? Instead of offering your templated comments of “hindi naman kayo pinipilit na sumali dito eh” or “subukan nyo kayong mag-organize ng runs”, why don’t you exert an effort to make this reach RIO’s attention. Hindi na para sa inyong die-hards ni RIO but for those who are not, to make them stay or attract them back.
      And if you are one who would say: “inggit ka lang kasi naka Porsche si RIO”, just tell me the time and place and I would be very glad to pick you up and give you a tour of my garage. You certainly miss my point.
      By the way, after we got our kits, we decided to give them away to others interested to do the run. I am sure there are other more worthy runs, less stressful, less inconvenient. And we don’t mind directly submitting our donations to the beneficiaries of World Vision.
      If you read this, find time to respect our opinions the way we have been respecting yours. Peace!!

  47. hello everybody, please don’t be angry or disappointed with Rio naman, the guy’s just earning a living- galing sa hirap yan sa UP. Anyway, simple lang, ‘makitakbo’ na lang tayo di ba- k lang walang giveaways, i would enjoy the friendly competition.
    i would join races only if the price range is php 500-600 ( exception iyon may 18 which is php 700 sa camp aguinaldo)
    siyempre, one wonders – bakit iyon petron, milo, yakult etc mura lang iyon reg fee e enjoy naman!
    anyway, sa world vision run- iyon 10 km event parang 10.50 km yon distance.
    see you all there (bandits) basta iyon naka white cap at black sun glasses, at adidas super nova glide 3 shoes, ako yon!

  48. may slot pa ba 21k? pa-reg sana ako dis coming 22 sa BGC meron pa ba registration para upon register eh kuha na racekit. tipid ung ganun sa pamasahe oras at panahon., busy kc sa work

    • You are nitpicking on small things but failed to mentioned the conveniences Run RIo events give to runners on the actual running event. Out of all the runrio events I’ve joined, it is ALWAYS well-organized and they DO listen to suggestions. I think you need to stop and ponder as well why Runrio decides to give away the racing kit on a specified time and date. Have it ever occur to you that they do this to cater to all sizes of runners instead of the conventional “first come, first serve” claiming of racing kits? And I think it is more convenient NOW, when Runrio decided to give away the lootbags(Sole Racing and World Vision) upon claiming of racekits. Ang hirap pumila sa lootbags when you are already tired. Unconventional?Yes maybe but I say it is more convenient and makes more sense.

      I am a happy customer of runrio and the fact that his events are always sold-out are just a testament that his unconventional ways are actually more effective if only small-minded people would find the time to rationalize the reasons behind it.

      • Wow! Small minded? Those are very strong words you got there. So if you come up with a scholarly composed comment, using carefully selected words, to be able to express your thoughts, you still think these people are small minded? His concerns were quite clear, that while he doesnt really mind paying, he decided to avoid Rio runs for reasons that were clearly explained. At maliwanag din sa kwento na if it were not the confusion, he would not have registered in this run. And you think he is small minded? He gave a very good point about the inconveniences which is applicable to all, no exceptions, meaning to say whether we admit it or not, we all fall victims to. And he is still small minded as far as you are concerned? God, those are pretty darn strong words. You are gifted! Apart from the fact that you stubbornly blind yourself of the fact that you are inconvenienced by having to go pick-up your kits, you seem to not realize that runners arent exclusively the rich, the well to do ones, but include the poor, the average earners. If the well to do people are inconvenienced by this unconventional methods, im sure the poor and average earners feel it more. Dont lend a blind eye on this. Sa lenguaheng kalye, wag kang plastic. You experience the inconvenience too. Tutal mukang die hard ka nga ni rio, isuggest mo sa kanya na ayusin to. So you dont have to pretend that you are not affected by the inconveniences. Oh and by the way, it should be “to mention” not “to mentioned”, you big mind!

      • Ps, Rodeo, sana mgkaron ka ng super importanteng lakad which would fall on the dates you are to pick up your kits, baka sakaling maliwanagan ka. Or maiyak ka sa panghihinayang, dahil di ka makakatakbo sa rio events na favorite mo. I wanted to think of a more drastic scenario, pero baka tawagin mo kong small minded eh

  50. Very well said. Kami iwas na din sa run united. Mahal talaga para sa ordinaryong empleyado gaya namin. Dagdag gastos pa at pagod pagclaim ng kits. Inconsiderate! Nagtry din kami mgpapic dyan kay Rio and dinecline nya. Di kasi kami sikat

  51. Respetuhan lang ng paniniwala. I believe na kapag sinawsawan ni kulot ang event, tataas ang fees. Kaya am not running in any that he organized. Madami naman dyan

    • Tsaka praktikal na lang ngayon kase mahirap ang buhay. Kung mahal ang fees, tapos additional gastos at pagod pa sa pagkuha ng kits, di bale na lang. Sana ganyan tayo mag-isip. Bakit pa kasi nauso fun run eh kahit wala nyan kung gugustuhin natin tumakbo pwede eh

  52. @Jeena: Die-hard agad? Hindi ba pwedeng satisfied customer muna? Thanks for that wonderful post because it proved my point about simple-mindedness.

    PS – I have a flight to Australia during the We Run Nike Manila race kit claiming. But instead of crying to the universe, I looked for a solution to my problem. Isip-isip lang din pag may time.

    PPS – The next time you decided to act like a grammar Nazi, please ensure that your grammar and English is impeccable. Otherwise you look like tool.

    • Hahaha there you go! A flight to Australia and yet you would have to bother yourself finding a way to have your kits picked up! Isnt that inconvenience? Really funny. So if you asked someone to pick it up for you and in the process you gave them money for transpo, isnt that inconvenience? Or if someone did that for you, isnt that inconvenience for that person too? Ikaw ang unang gumamit ng small mind na term not me yet you fail to continue to disregard of this very obvious logic. Since you did mention of flights, i would cite one for you too. More than a year ago, i had a sudden flight abroad that i had to send my dad, with my ID, with my OR and with my email authorizing him to pick up my kits. He traveled all the way from alabang to do this, in spite of his busy schedules and it thought this was better than sending a staff because, to reiterate, he was my dad. And what did the staff say? The authorization had no signature blah blah. My dad had to call me overseas just to confirm that i sent him to pick up the kits! Hindi inconvenience to? Hindi ako bobo not to find the means to have the kits picked-up, same way that you found the means when you traveled to australia. But thee point is these are inconveniences to me, and to you too! Umamin ka naman hindi yung sobrang plastic mo. And tutal you mentioned your point about distributing the loot bags together with thr kits to lessen the lines after the race, if the organizers can do this, why cant they manage to improve the system by a same day registration and release of the kits. Kaya nanan nila kasi magagaling sila. Now if you stick with this stand after all, i hope that you realize that getting the loot bags after the race is entirely different from getting the kits before the race. Pgkatapos mo tumakbo,, you have the option of not getting the lootbags anymore. Anyway, if you are one who is after the run, okay lang na wala ka ng lootbags, ang mahalaga nkatakbo ka. What about the kits? Simple- no kits, no run! Ganun kasimple! Unlike in the loot bags where you have the choice, sa kits, you dont! Kung gustung-gusto mo tumakbo, you have to go to rio’s designated place and get the kits. Mahirap ba intindihin yun? So distributing the loot bags upon distribution of the kits doesnt benefit everybody, but the same day regustration and release of the kits does. Tsktsk, since when does correcting someone else’s grammar make him a Nazi. Foul ka!

      • Si Rodeo ay taga Run Rio.

        Die-hard agad, di ba pwedeng staff muna na binabayaran? :)))

  53. Uulitin ko ha, no complaints about actual race performance of rio, prices lang, release ng kits lang. Tutal mahal ang bayad, at tutal magagaling naman sila, aksyunan nila. Nampusa, ako ngang may pambayad, may mauutusan etc, sumuko sa ganitong sistema eh! Pano pa yung mga kababayan natin na ngtitipid ng baon o sweldo para lang makasali sa mga runs. Tapos mag-aabsent sa work, gagastos ulit makuha lang ang kits. Hindi mahirap intindihin to Rodeo, magpakatotoo ka lang.

  54. Just sharing…

    I used to be a fan of Rio. Pero minsan, nagpabid ang kumpanya namin ng event sa kanya. Kaya pala mahal…kasi ang manager may dalawang asst manager. yung asst manager may kanya kanya pang asst manager. encoder 15k bawat isa times 10 encoders! Makapag apply nga!

    Akala nya sa amin, tanga na walang alam sa presyohan ng event!

    kaparehong event na pina-bid sa kanya, pina-bid din sa iba pang tatlong race organizer. Yung apat na milyon na charge nya, sa ibang organizer wala pang isang milyon. Pinakamahal na yung 1.5m.

    Sabihin nang well organized ang events nya, 4x ba talaga ang presyo ng gamit nya sa gamit ng iba?

    Running for love? pweh!

    Ganyan talaga pag mataas maintenance ng buhay at madaming mamahaling kotseng dapat bayaran at walang ibang gagawin kundi ikutin ang mundo sa pera ng runners! mamahalin mo talga ang runners kung ganyan!

    Major turn off!

    • Guys, wala akong pinapanigan sa inyo pero gusto ko lang magbigay din ng sariling opinyon sa bagay na pinag-uusapan.

      Una, ako ay sumali sa World Vision Run 2013 dahil sa purpose nito, TO HELP CHILDREN. Di dahil kaya kong magbayad ng registration fee, kundi dahil batid kong makakatulong kahit papaano ang fee na yun sa mga batang beneficiaries nito. Nagmula din naman ako sa mahirap na pamilya at batid ko kung gaano kahirap para sa mga magulang ang pagpapalaki at pagpapa-aral sa mga anak. Mabuti na lang at may nag-sponsor para sa pag-aaral ko kaya ako nakatapos.

      Pangalawa, ang pagtakbo ay isang paraan para magkaroon tayo ng malusog at matatag na katawan, ehersisyo ika nga na laging sinasabi sa atin ng doktor para maging laging healthy. Nakakatuwa at marami na ring Pilipino kung di man sumasali sa mga fun runs o marathons ay tumatakbo para sa ikabubuti ng kanilang katawan. Isang paraan na rin ito para magiging disiplinado tayo sa ating katawan.

      Pangatlo, sa palagay ko, ang registration fees para sa tatlong race categories ay di lamang ang Runrio ang nagdemand, napagkasunduan ito ng World Vision Philippines at iba pang mga organizations na involved sa naturang event. Wag po nating idiin ang isang organization lamang, ang fees na yun ay may approval ng lahat na sangkot sa naturang CAUSE. Kung di pa po kayo ma-convince, itulad na lang natin ang Runrio sa Starbucks coffee, mahal ang coffee dun pero satisfied ka naman sa ibinibigay nila, at di lahat nakaka-inom ng kape dun dahil nga mahal. Parang ganun lang po yun mga tulad kong run fanatics, wag na tayong magreklamo kung mahal man ang registration fees sa naturang event. Meron po tayong sinasabing CHOICE, at yun ang di makukuha sa atin ninuman, kahit ang Runrio at ang World Vision…

      Marami pong salamat!
