  1. U guys didnt even make sure that all ur participants got thru.. only 2 things i liked abt this event was the shirt and hydration (c/o Maynilad and Pocari Sweat)

  2. Ang napansin ko lang, kulang ata sa Photographer on site. Syempre bilang Graphics Zone and theme of Run & Smile, dapat marami magkalat na camera. Bakit ata limitado lang? How can you promote it again kung wala nmang remembrance sa mga runners? Tama po ba? Yun lang naman.

  3. well organized ang run. mukang mali ung negative comments na nabasa ko before sumali dito. sakto ang portalets at mga waterstations. challenging ang route dahil sa mga uphill ^___^. dami din mga marshals at mga bikers para mag assist ng runners at nag assist sa traffic.

    un nga lang. wala loot bag at least may medal. wala din pala masyadong photographers para kuhanan ang smile ng runners. db run and smile. or baka nagtago lng cla. hintayin nlng ntin ang photos. ^___^

    over all masaya! good job!

  4. Ok naman na sana ung race un nga.. wala masyadong Photographers… then loots… tpos photobooth iisa lang Knowing na photobooth company ang nag organize… well hydrated ang runners kaso ang mga martial nawala sa dulo madaming naligaw… ahh last ung saging nakakabitin isang stop lng ung may saging early part pa ng race hehehe pero ok naman na sya ^_^ mag iimprove pa to hihi

  5. wlang kwenta organizer nito tulad lang nung dating run for skechers. Napaka dumi nang site nila sa elshadai mapanghe pa. Onti lng ang sumali nakakaboared lalo na sa mga nag 21k runner. Dami marshall na nakamotor kaso natutulog lang sa mga motor nila as in nkatambay lang hindi nmn talaga nag mamarshall tulad nang ibang organizer na may Good Morning greetings pa, sila para lang masabi na may bantay at yun na yun. in fairness good job sa mga tao nang hydration booth nila helpfull sila sa mga runners. Isa pa walang mga photographer siguro alam nila na crappy tong event na toh, wala din loot bag mukang tinipid na kc walang kinita dahil wala gano nag punta. Wala na din ang fan page nila ang galing nang modus talaga.

  6. I agree with tanruntan, IT WAS A MESS!
    I’ve joined a lot of fun runs and this was the worst! The venue smelled of pee and there was garbage everywhere. There weren’t enough marshalls and signages to guide us. The organizer didn’t give us confirmation/ reminders for the run via email nor text unlike the other organizers. Guys, try to join other fun runs and you’ll see what i mean. You would be able to compare.
    For the organizer: please take our comments seriously. You are trying to raise money for operation smile and how can you do that if you have a negative reputation? Sayang ng potential runners, sayang ng dating runners na di na sumali. I feel bad for Operation Smile.

  7. With all the negative comments before the run i expected it to be one big dissapointing event but it was not that bad. I still left the area feeling happy. I ran 21k and was generally satisfied with it except for; a)the smallest stage you will ever see (or don’t see), b) the premature gun start, c) dark areas going into C5 Extension(before turning right to the bridge)and d)some cars/trucks that got thru. Again, it was a good event over-all especially the number of hydration stops, bikers who helped out runners in distress and the singlet, finisher shirt and medal. There is always room for improvement. Thank you guys!

  8. Just some points for improvement:

    direction markers are not placed effectively
    marshalls not guiding the runners especially in the final kilometer
    route is not surveyed … there was a part where there’s a rope blocking the entire road near the finish
    single photobooth from a photobooth organizer
    no photographers

    worth commending …

    hydrations stations
    nice route along c5 ext
    visible traffic enforcers and total stopping of traffic along the route
    medals

  9. totoo yan sobrang panghi lalo s unang pag liko sa halip na sariwang hangin ang malanghap ng runners mapanghing likido ang pumasok s baga, cncia na kc totoo lng nmn ung cnbi ko cguro nmn kahit cnu nalanghap dn nila un, hmp tama n nga yan tapos n eh, pakita nlng ng mga photos ng mga runners

  10. boykot to sa mga photogs…ksi alam na!!!… sa paulit2 ba nmn eh…mgalng lng to sla sa registrations..ksi pera lng habol…cgurado papalamig n nmn to org. nto muna tas gwa uli pnibago patakbo dun uli sa c5 ext…# inaabangan ko tlga dto mga nega comments! haha!!! NGAnga!

  11. bitin…mukhang hindi 21k yung tinakbo namen…na appreciate ako sa finisher at singlets nila kasi maganda kaso disappoint ako sa event. less directions, no photographer, wlang guide, dami sponsor pero konti lang ang booth…

  12. Masarap lang ang pocari sweat… naka isang gallon yata ako. hehe. (exxaggee) alam na kung bakit mapanghe,.. hehehe…

      • Wag kayo maxado mag expect, late na kasi ako nakarating sa event. Mga 6:15AM ata nakarating sa venue so mangilan ngilan n lang po ang nakunan ko, mostly ung mga slow runner talaga (swerte nila)

  13. I joined again same as the last “challenge run” hoping that it was going to be different…it wasn’t. Mejo sinubukan lng nilang hindi mapahiya and tried to prove the bashers wrong. kinuha p nila si pareng Bearwin pra mghost and support them, pro halatang un p din mismo ung ng-organize ng race. kulang pa din and overall I dont think it was a successful race. Kulang ang mga medics, aga naubos ng pocari sweat, wlang kwenta ung mga marshals(naka tanga lng), at mejo halatang tinipid…so in some ways, namera pa din.. Although oo, halos lahat nmn ngayon ng ngpapa-race eh mga more than 50% is in it for the money and not to raise some funds for a cause, still, you should atleast give us our moneys worth..Godbless.

  14. sna nmn bawat 1 kilometro may photographer bti nlng ako may pic sa takbuhan panu nlng ang asawa ko na 5k lng tinakbo wlng suviner… ilabas nyo na ang resulta ng mga runners.

    • POSITIVE COMMENTS
      1. Maganda yung Venue kahit madaming akyat-baba na daanan.
      2. Di ka mauuhaw sa run.
      3. Runner-friendly ang waterboys and girls, panalo sa effort mag-abot ng tubig, mahihiya ka pa kung di mo kunin.
      4. Yung baggage area, Safe na safe sa ulan
      5. yung dressing area, pinaka the best kasi hotel restroom e. hehe.

      NEGATIVE COMMENTS:

      1. Seriously, ang boring ng run. SOBRA… ung unang 2km, tinatamad akong tumakbo. ginusto ko nalang na umuwi. sobrang boring… ang dilim pa dun sa nadaanan.

      2. NAalala ko yung saging. ang liit liit tapos ubos agad. unang daan ko, di muna ako kumuha kasi masyado pang maaga, nung pagdaan ko ulet, manghihingi na ako, wala na daw. hahaha…

      3. yung pabalik na ako, muntik na din ako maligaw kasi wala na ngang nag-ga-guide sa likod ng el shaddai. tapos ang nakakatawa, may apat na ASO sa daan, kaya imbes na tumakbo or mag-jog, naglakad nalang ako. mahirap ng magbuwis ng buhay. haha.

      4. Meron pa, yung photographers, iisa lang nakita kong nag-shoot sa daan. As i experienced sa ibang running event, madaming naghihintay na photographer sa finishline, ayun, on my part, wala na. hahaha… kahit naman bandang dulo na kami, we still deserved pa rin naman na ma-picture-an. kasi kung wala kaming kulelats, wala ang mga early finishers. hehe.

      5. LAST, kasing mahal nyu na halos yung UNILAB 21k, sana man lang may lootbat ng biscuit, saging at drinks(water or pocari) Masayang MAsaya na kami nun. hehe.

      OVERALL – 6 out of 10 ang rating ko.

  15. tama ung n nga lng ang suviner ng mga tao tapos sinulo p nla pati palatandaan na nkarating kna straw lng marami nmng mabibili s dvsoria

  16. Tama negative comments din ako dito, madami mga marshalls na nakamotor lang naman and wala naman pakialam sa mga runners, walang nag assist, esp. malapit na sa finish line muntik na kaming dalawa ng husband mag cross nakakalito walang nag assist don, masarap kasi tumakbo pag me mga taong concern, marshalls dyan sa tabi mo, And walang loot bag give-aways, wala din mga nag pipictures,,. Pakilabas nalang po race results, para makabawi kayo sa mga runners..yon lang po, hopefully next time mag improve na. Salamat.

    Again, I am just a volunteer photographer. Meaning, WALANG BAYAD. I am not affiliated to the organizer of any fun run bodies. I wake early, as much as I can para lang magka-souvenir ang mga runner. Pero since libre lang naman toh, hobby ko lang naman to, pagkakawang gawa lang, gigising ako ng maaga pero dont expect too much. Sometimes, we arrive late at the venue. So most probably, kung sino lang maabutan, sila lang ung may photos.

    Again, I am just a volunteer photographer. Kung wala kayo sa photo albums, it’s purely not our fault, so please stop posting negative comments in our page. Kung makapag reklamo kasi ung iba, akala nila, binayaran nyo ung pagpunta ko don.

    On a positive side, thanks sa mga naka appreciate! You’re the reasons why I will still continue in this endeavor – VOLUNTEER PHOTOGRAPHER.

    • i remember you sir. thanks thanks sa page nyo. dahil sa inyo lang ako tumitingin ng mga photos sa running events na sinalihan ko ^_^ kung sino man ung mga nega comments ang nilagay, bitter lang tlga. hehe.. sayang lang tlga dahil konti lang kayong volunteer photographer.

      • Bukod sa konti lang kami, xempre mahirap sa part namin talaga ung gigising kami ng maaga. Ni libreng saging wala kami. Tas tatayo kami don ng more than 2 hrs at magbababad sa araw. It’s not an easy hobby diba…

        Thanks po pala sa pag-appreciated! (^^.)oO

  18. It wasn’t a very good event, but for me over-all, it has helped me achieve what I prayed for, which was to finish the 21k without injuries. This was my first 21k. So, this race will always be special for me.

  19. mam wag nyong sbhin n sa 21k at 10k lng kau nka pwesto sa pag kuha ng picture, bkit may mga 5k kayong nakunan? anu un magic? hahaha ok lng wla n akng pic result nlng ang kailangan nmn at wag nyong ipagdamot.

    • Lhetty –

      Ser po, hindi Ma’am. Again, i am a VOLUNTEER PHOTOGRAPHER.
      Volunteer means, LIBRE lamang, wlang bayad at kusang loob lang ako nagpunta don. Ni isang patak ng pocari swet hindi ako nakalagok. So don’t take your anger against me. I dont even know the organizer of this event, i know galit ka pero sana, you think first, before you post your comments. And i-address mo ung comment mo sa tamang tao. It’s really offensive. It seems that i am wrongly accused. .

      Kung wala kayo sa album ko, may mga dahilan:

      1. Maaring may kasabay kayo na naharangan kayo sa picture
      2. Hindi ako nakapwesto sa route nyo
      3. Late na ko dumating sa venue. Kung sino na lang maabutan, sila na lang.
      4. Nagutom na ko at kumain na muna sa Yakimix.
      5. Naiinitan na ko sa pwesto ko so umuwi na ko para magsimba

      Do not blame me coz I am just a volunteer photographer who aims to take a photo on your special moment while in the race.

      • sir tao lng n nagkaroon dn ng kamalian cguro kng ikw dn po ang nsa kalagayan ko hahanapin m rn at magkakaroon ka ng hndi magandang hinuha sa time na titingnan m ang photo at result kng andun ka d po b? kng nagkaroon man ako ng hndi maganda at pandinig na salita sna mapatawad m ako tao lng ako… oo masama talaga ang loob k kc first timer lng ako kya nagkaroon ako ng kagalakan upang makita ang picture at result ng tinakbo ko. tanung k lng kng itong pinost nyo na result may kasunod pa po. sna dn maintindihan nyo ang side ko… sir peace na po………….. god bless you always..

    • haha, grabe naman kayo Ma’am, ang harsh nyo nman po sa mga photographers. nangyari din naman po sakin yan. ni isang larawan wala akong nakita sa facebook. pero hindi naman po ako magiging sarcastic at mag po-post ng mga comments na nakakasakit ng kapwa.

      To AJDA, we need more volunteer photographers so sana hindi ka magsawa sa pagkuha ng mga larawan namin.

      Yun lamang po!

    • @lhetty: Kindly be reminded that when you registered for the race you paid for the race bib, race chip and finisher’s medal. It was never stated that photos along the race are included. I am speaking for Ajda and the rest of the running photographers because I know that these guys are purely volunteers and that they are doing it only for the love of running and their passion for photography. Since this is your first official run, I feel sorry that you had your very first run on such unorganized race. I would suggest on your next runs, read through the feedbacks posted here in PF or even on other sites. Run on reputable organizers and for sure after the race your FB wall will be filled with shared and tag photos of yours and that you will appreciate the efforts of these volunteer photographers/runners. Just my two cents :)

  20. Haha kawawa naman un mga nagmagandang loob na photographer mukhang nasisisi pa wag naman po sana tayong ganyan baka sa susunod na mga run wala ng mag volunteer :( taka kung nakuhaan naman nila kayo I popost naman nila yan aanhin naman nila yan haha

    • salamat sa suporta! Eksakto, hindi naman namin ipag-da-damot ang inyong mga larawn.

      Saka bihira po na ang isang fun run ay may bayarang Photographer. Sa halos PITONG Fun Run events na sinalihan ko this year, lahat nman mga photographer na nagmagandang loob lamang.

      Salamat muli! (^^.)oO

  21. incomplete loop talaga? e nka 22.73 kilometers pa nga aq dahil sa kabobohan ng bantay hndi cnabi na iikot ulit ng isa pa pinadaan aq ppuntang finish line umikot pa tuloy ulit aq nkadalawa tuloy aq cross ng finish line.

  22. Booo!! Not gonna join races from this event organizers!
    Nagmamadali kayong patayin ang nakikikabit nyong kuryente! Pathetic. Pati un photo booth gusto nang hugutin ang saksakan may nakapila pa. Ba yan

  23. Panong hindi unfinished ang result e pinagpatayan niyo kame ng timer.. wala daw cut off a.. last turn na lang e. nung nasa other side kame ng finish line bukas pa.. pagkaliko namin wala na.. sad naman first 21k run ko to tapos ganito pa.. buti na lang may runtastic. In fairness, para sakin maganda finisher’s shirt tsaka good job dun sa hydration and hydration crew very nice sila.

  24. grabe…that was my first time n maligaw ako sa run…ha,ha…panalo n sana nging bato p…kulang sa marshall, first time ko mag’tanong sa gitna ng run,tapos yung kukunting marshall hindi p alam kung saan yung eksaktong daan ng 21k haist..! keep improving po sayang ang ganda ng singlet nyo imbes n smile,sad…ha,ha..

  25. basta aq I had fun and I did it in 2hrs and 9mins yahoo! it is also my first time to jojn 21k run. sayang nga Lang dapat awards nila 1st to 5th kahit certificate Lang sna para memorable kasi i was in the fifth place…but its okay happy naman aq:)

  26. wag natin sisihin ang photographer una volunteer lang sila ,photographer din ako kung alam nyo lang yung ACTUATION na sinsayang nila magkaroon lang kayo ng picture ,UNA palang winanarningan na kayo na di maganda ang patakbo ng organizer na yan SUBOK sa kabulukan iibahain na naman nya nae nya basta tandem yan at ng skecther.

  27. Sino kaya yung Photographer na nakasuot ng RU2 na finisher shirt?
    pa upload naman mga pics mu sir.. yung nakapwesto sa bago matapos ang
    first loop. Thanks in advance sir.

  28. Sana naman wag nyong sayangin ang pera nyong ipina pang register sa takbo lalo na kung ang ORGANIZER ay ang Graphic Zone tulad na lang sa nangyari na RUN AND SMILE last sunday.. Unang una palang, nag inquire kami sa kanila kung may prize ba yung mga mananalo per category at ang sagot YES MERON PO bawat category merong prize yung top 3. Pero, pagdating ng oras tanging TOP 1 lang ang may prize at yung top 2 at top 3 ay NGA NGA ni hindi man lang tinawag sa stage para bigyan man lang ng recognition. Tapos, eto ang gagawin nyo sa mga elite pinaasa nyo lang na mga hinayupak kayo! Ang gusto nyo lang ang kumita at hindi sa sinasabing for CHARITY na kalokohan nyo. Yan si CONRAD ndi pala Runner kaya ndi marunong makiramdam o maki simpatiya sa mga tumatakbo dahil walang alam sa RUNNING! Sbi nga ng kaibigan ko at nabasa ko sa wall nya na bago ka mag organize ng RUN dapat maging RUNNER ka. At kapag may concern ang runner dapat makinig kayo at sagutin nyo ng maayos. Ang mahal mahal na nga ng reg fee nyo tapos ang ibibigay nyong reward sa mga sumali ay NGA NGA ni lootbag wala..

    • Kasama ko dun sa incomplete. I finished the race kahit lampas lampas na at walang direksyon ang ruta… tnapos ko pa din ung 21k kaso pagdating namin ng kasama ko nakapatay na ung timer tinanggal na sa saksakan.. gagaling!!
