Congratulations to all finishers of the 2014 7-Eleven RUN 1000 in Aseana City! How was your run!?

Based on observation, hydration was the best! 7-Eleven Run is still the only race where all the major hydration brands come together to support the runners, the weather cooperated as well. But since there was almost 20,000 runners who attended this event, the lootbag and medal collection process seems to have encountered some bottleneck.

Time to share your comments and feedback guys! Remember, your comments are very important to the organizers, it will help them improve this one of a kind race next year. And if you loved the race, leave them a cheer!

Thanks to everyone who dropped by the Pinoy Fitness booth as well!

  1. Isang malupit na comment lang. “FAIL ang distribution ng Finisher’s Loot Bag.” Thank you very much. Mabuhay Philippines

  2. will be the best run of the year again..awesome route, marshalls everywhere, flooding hydration..mamimili ka pa. kayo na

  3. Tried looking for pf booth pero di ko nakita:(7 eleven run was the best, medyo wala n nga Lang hydration pabalik from Zante to las pinas

    • andun lang ang pf booth sa tabi ng selecta nagpa register nga me kay sir jeff dun 500 php ang payment kaso naubusan me ng reg.form pero its ok lang kc sa reebok trinoma ko nalang kukunin personalized pa sya im looking fwd to it the yellow membership shirt and also nxt year running.fyi pls.

  4. Overall, good race to start the year!

    CON: madali sa mga cheaters mag u-turn along the route. Naawa din ako sa mga pabalik na 16k at 21k runners dahil halos okupado na naming mga 5k runners ang road after start.

    PRO: Over sa hydration during and after the race. Hindi rin ako nagka-problema sa claiming ng finisher’s kit at baggage. At ang pinaka the best ay ang freebies. Sinukuan ko na kahit pwede pang bumalik sa mga pila. Naghalo-halo din ang mga nakain ko buti na lang di nasira. Ang dami talagang pagkain, mga inumin, sabon, condoms (oops) at iba pa.

    • I agree about the cheaters… dapat may nagbibigay ng color band or necklace para malaman yung mga cheaters.

      Sakin naman, aside dun sa hassle ng singlet at bib claming na dun ko pa pinickup sa site imbis sa 7-11store, overall pasado ang 711 run and I’m definetely joining next year!

      • di na kailangan ng color band (for 16K and 21K) dahil sa pag U-turn andun din yung mag detect sa timing chip. Problema nga lang sa 10K, 5K and 3K.

  5. Ang daming tao!
    Hahaha!
    Masaya kasi madaming tao.
    Bawing bawi ang binayad ko, lalo na sa mga condoms! Hahaha

  6. 3 Sports drink makers yung kinuha ng 7-eleven(Pocari, Gatorade, Powerade), pero naubos agad yung hydration mula 13K hanggang 16K.

    Kainis lang.

  7. Kudos to 7-11!!!..Talagang mahihiya ang ibang runs sa dami ng freebies. Ayos din mga marshalls. Pansin ko lng bkit 5k runners lang binibigyan ng pocari lootbag?!

  8. Sana mabasa rin naman yung mga resulta sa iba’t ibang diyaryo kahit top 10 lang sa bawat category. Paging Seven 11. Thanks.

  9. Unfair lootbag for 21K finishers like me, same lang ng ibang category. Sana may something special man lang kahit yun medal eh medyo malake sana. Buti pa 5K my special pocari lootbag pa sila.

    • disappointed ako sa medal and finisher shirt..yung medal, sana kahit papano mas maganda sa 21k (lace lang pinagkaiba sa ibang category eh), then finisher shirt di man lang dri fit :(

  10. The biggest fun run ever for the year 2014 whew,,,, la kmi msabi ng mrs. ko kya join kmi ulit next year thanks to the orginizers,sponsors,also to the PATERNO familly mabuhay 711,,,,,,,

  11. Moshpit sa distribution ng pagkain, haha.. Ansaya, hakutan sa freebies, sana lahat ng fun run ganyan, failed ang hydration ng pabalik sa 21km halos wala sa right side kelangan pa magcross sa kabila.. Failed din ang distribution ng 21km lootbag. Pero masaya pa din bawi na.

  12. suggestion lang po…dapat yung medal ibinibigay sa runners once nag cross na sila sa finish line

  13. Ok run n to. One of the best organized if not the best. Kulang lang disiplina iba runners when it comes to giving others a chance to avail of the frebbies too.

  14. Great run! sarap tumakbo sa tabing dagat. sarap ng simoy ng hangin… ayos sa freebies at condoms, haha!
    Negative lang haba ng pila ng claiming ng lootbag, although understandable naman kasi sobrang daming runners, 17k+ ata. and masikip ung kalsada kung saan ang claiming…

    Overall, ok ‘tong run na to. Sa uulitin ^_^

    • hanap hanap lang sa mga link ng photo sir pag may time, hindi naman alam ng admin ng site o nong organizer yung itsura para ipakita sayo yung pic mo, sa dami ng tumakbo parang ikaw lang ata yung nagrequest na ipahanap yung sarili mong pic, masyado na atang abuso yan kung pati paghahanap pic iaasa sa organizer, isip isip din po, enjoy sa pagtakbo

  15. morning magandang tumakbo sa cavitex ng 21k pero sana yong fs eh iba sa mga ibang k kasi mas pinahirapan ng mga runnerslahat pare-pareho pa tshirt di man lang dry fit at suggestion lang yong sa supponsor sana ang mga nasa lotbag na para naman di maubusan ng freebies pipila pa sa dami ng tao eh sure yong iba naman dyan di na tumakbo hinabol ng lang freebies sa ibat ibang booth… success naman ang takbo walng injury sa mga runners …. next year ulit … enjoy running …

  16. Im glad that im able to finish strong (16K- 1.32 My Unofficial time).

    congested na yung road last 2km before the finish line hirap na tumakbo.

    Ang taas pa naman ng adrenalin ko nun :D

    congrats to all…..we did a great job for finishing our category.

  17. marami nagsasabi na maganda yung run kasi madaming freebies

    …pero kung titingnan mo talaga, ‘di sya ganun ka-ganda.

  18. Kasi ung mga Marshall di nag sasabi kung san ba dapat pumila para sa lootbag. Kung di pa tatanungin fi pa sila magsasalita. Na overwhelmed yata sila sa dami ng tao.

    At ang iba naging gahaman ng looting ng lootbag.

  19. mas madami pang hydration for 3k and 5k… I ran a 10k pero pagbalik ko lahat ng 5k nagccrowd sa pocari and powerade. kawawa ung mga 21k and 16k na mas kelangan ung drinks to replenish.

    last 3km super congested, hirap magweave and maintain pace. puro 5k na nagsselfie or ppicturan.

    lost around 3-8 seconds when crossing finish line, super daming tao nakacrowd.

    pumila ng 45mins for the Finishers kit, same same lang pala tshirt ng lahat whether 21k or 3k. may nakita akong iba di naman tumakbo pero nakiclaim nadin kasi super gulo ng claiming. dapat ata sa claiming issurrender ung shoe tag like nike run manila…

    okay na sana ung run, much room for improvement. maybe next time iba route ng 3k and 5k and give more priority to 21k and 16k runners.

    • I agree with you about giving the 3K and 5K a different route, MOST of them dont even run. Naglalakad at nagpipicturan lang without looking behind kung nakaharang sila sa mga incoming runners na naghahabol ng PR. I personally was aiming for a strong finish pero natrafic na ako sa last 3k sa dami ng tao. Although I still made a personal best, naka sub1hour sana ako if not for those crowd. Sana sa ibang route sila gaya ng ginagawa sa BGC minsan.

    • Tama! i couldn’t agree more. at least apat yung nilampasan kong hydration station kasi either wala na or sobrang dami ng tao. nahirapan din ako umiwas sa mga tao sa last 2kms. para sa akin 6.5/10 ang race na ito – pasang awa :)

  20. I pity those people saying that this was the best running event ever, it’s close to obvious that they haven’t ran Milo, Run United, Rexona … I could definitely say that this is one of the WORST event I’ve ran so far, and definitely my last 7Eleven event, mainly for the following reasons:

    1. You have to go thru hell to pay the registration fee. Systems down, incompetent 7eleven staff. Not to mention the delay in releasing the race kits. Very unorganized, sending text messages saying that the claiming of race kits was moved to January 16 instead of Jan 5, then another text message that the last day of claiming was Jan 17, very inconsiderate.

    2. Are you kidding me with the lack of hydration station on the way back from the Cavite flyover until after the toll gate.This is the last leg of the run, and the 21K runners need to hydrate, geez!!!

    3. I don’t especially like that Pocare guy who was leaning on a table, sharing a laugh with someone, drinking his ice cold Pocare Sweat bottle, while the 21K runners pass by in disbelieve seeing that there’s no more paper cup and those Pocare staff don’t wanna hand out the bottles. This guy was looking at the runners, ignoring those people asking for a drink, while he was having the best time laughing.

    4. Now my WORST experience by far was the distribution of medal. Why distribute the medal and the loot bag at the same time??!! That was the longest line I’ve seen in an event, just to get a medal. And the medal in a box, really??? And the attitude of those distributing the medals and loot bags –> no congratulations, with their stoic faces, slow distribution. As a long distance runner, all I want to do after finishing the race is to sit down and take a rest.

    5. Why would the organizer put the photo wall after the distribution of the medals. With thousands of runners, expect heavy traffic along that area. Aseana is not the best place to hold an event, unless you organize the booths in such a way that people don’t crowd a certain area at a particular time.

    6. And what’s with that September 2013 issue of Men’s Health. Are they just getting rid of old, unsold magazines?!!!

    I think with 7Eleven bragging about their 1000 stores, they still opted for higher profits from this race rather than a quality event.

    On the good side, I like the race route to Cavite. I’m looking forward to those events using this route, except for 7Eleven, this year was my first and last run with them

    • I agree! Idagdag pa ang kawalan ng sponge, banana, pa-flashlight sa madidilim na area. Nasa toll gate na ko uhaw at konting gutom tlg ang nararamdaman ko that time.
      Ultimate tlg yung kiosk style hydration station na wala ng paper cups! FAILED!

      sana di ginamit ung ruta ng 21k at 16k sa sumasabay na 5k at 3k na walang ginawa kundi magselfie. Kahit na bawal sa labas ng orange cone dun na ko tumakbo para di ko masiko ung mga tao.

      DEFINITELY MY FIRST AND LAST 7-ELEVEN RUN! Rate: 3/10

    • Obvious na fanatics ka ni Kulot.. kung runner ka talaga alam mo na even un ibang run mga Iumang mags ang pinamimigay. At aware ka rin sana na hindi lahat maayos..walang perpektong patakbo…

    • @wined

      hindi nya siguro na-experience ni James yung growing pains ni rio… lahat ng mga mali ng 7-11 nangyari na sa kanya. Meron isang patakbo si rio, century tuna nung 2010 mas kalat pa kaysa sa 7-11 nung weekend.

      pero sa totoo lang, hindi natin ma-deny na malaki ang naitulong ni Rio sa pag-improve ng quality ng patakbo dito sa atin. Kaso nga lang, sa pagtaas ng quality, pati fees nagtaas.

      Alam naman natin na meron din na pagkukulang ang mga organizers ng 711. Hopefully next year ma-address nila yon. Kaso iba na talaga ang mga runners ngayon, mahirap i-satisfy.

  21. 1. Race Kit claiming : nakaka disappoint kasi ibang singlet ang nasa loob ng kit, walang sumagot sa email ko at pati sa PM ko sa FB buti na lang maayos kausap ang 711 store manager.
    [During the event, mabilis ang process sa Secretariat B, napalitan ko agad ang singlet ko…good job!]
    2. RACE: 1st 2km, over flowing ang pocari (may cheering pa sila… nakaka good vibes!), maraming akong nakitang marshals, may ambulance din, kaso pagbalik mas konti yung hydration station… congested din yung last 5km nung nagsama sama na ang 21k, 16k at 10k runners
    3. AFTER RACE: Akala ko sasabitan ka ng medal sa Finish line, hehe.. at hinde organize ang pag claim ng loot bag.. sa dami ng nag register sana nag-isip sila ng mas magandang strategy kung pano yung claiming of loot bags… [Maraming freebies, as in marami, nakakalula na nga eh.. konting tyaga lang sa pagpila]

    =)

  22. congrats to the organizers and the finishers esp. the 16 km runners where i joined
    ganda talaga ni isabel daza, didnt see ann curtis

    some comments though-
    parking should be allowed along bradco ave since it is closed anyway, medyo hirap sa parking even if you’re early, then the only parking at Bradco was reserved for those with car pass ( this was not mentioned in the website) those who came early paid parking at a far distance (opp. DFA) then the late comers get to park along the road for free!

    hydration cups were short along the way going back the pocari guys refuse to give the bottles

    and the race route needs improvement – there should be different race routes for each category in such a way that there will be no clogging – and medyo makitid and dark ( accident prone)

    then the race kit finisher shirt stinks! Hinda siya Dri fit – or maybe para sa 21 kms runners lang iyon

    finally, iyon distance for 16 km is it correct? Help

  23. oo nga kakainis yung medal at lootbag claiming di mo alam kung san ka pipila or kung my pila nga ba dapat yung medal sinasabit sa runner after they cross the finsh line den kasumod my mag aabot ng loot bag just like sa milo.. ang gulo nila di organized at sa race track doon sa my coastal mall magulo na kasi humalo na yung mga 5 k and 3k na walang gninawa kundi mag picture…

  24. Ang maganda lang sa run is yung race route and yung freebies. Pero kung mapapansin niyo, magulo talaga. Kawawa ang mga 21k and 16k runners, pag baba mo ng flyover pabalik wala nang hydration. May isang hydration area pa na kailangan mo sumalubong sa ibang runners. Buwis buhay din 21k at 16k kasi occupied ng 5k yung coastal road, so ang nangyayari napipilitan kaming bumagal or lumampas dun sa mga cone, sasalubungin naman namin yung mga parating na sasakyan. Kaming mga runners na mismo ang sumisigaw ng keep right. Wala naman ako naging problema sa pag kuha ng finishers kit at loot bag kasi medyo maaga pa nun, pero yung pag hintay ko sa mga kasama ko, inabot ng halos isang oras sa pila.

  25. I had supported the maiden 7-Eleven Run 2013 edition despite the adverse weather condition and mediocre postponement excuses by the race stakeholders. On race date runners were elated by the superior running event quality and the race stakeholders vindicated themselves.

    But the recent 7-Eleven 2014 edition can be considered depressing due to the dismal running event quality! Based on actual running experience what had been provided can be considered generic and substandard!

    Let me cast a permanent vote by walking away. Good bye 7-Eleven!

  26. Please reserve finisher’s shirts (with corect distance printed) and medals for the long-distance runners’, as thes are their sources of pride. These runners worked harder and thus should be treated with more more reverence. They trained with commitment/dedication, trained longer and more intelligently. Kung baga, parang honor student sa school.

    Sure you can the more average runners also deserve encouragement, that’s why everyone has the lootbag. But the more serious runners should have more rewards.

    • Sa opinyon ko ok lang naman merong medal at shirts lahat. Nakalagay naman yung distance sa medal…

      Saka wala naman sa distance ang basehan kung seryoso o hindi. Merong tumatakbo ng 10k, na mas malaki ang effort sa training kaysa sa 21k o kahit 42k. Mas mahirap tumakbo ng mabilis kesa mas malayo. Meron naman po yung may kapansanan na kahit 5k eh pahirapan na.

      Ang napansin ko lang na malaking problema ng organizers, eh congested ang daan. Sobrang dami ng runners kaya naging masikip. At base sa mga posts, daming naubusan ng hydration at problema sa finishers kit.

    • More than the pride, honor, or what have you, humility and perhaps respect for all runners regardless of the distance they are running, is what we should get or learn from any running event. I presume you are an “elite” runner, so consider your self more blessed than others. And you should be thankful for that. Everybody has a right to join and run!

      • Speaking of respect, regardless of the distance they’re running, EVERYONE should at least try to avoid taking pictures in the middle of the road. Everyone has the right to join and run, it may be a fun race, but there are serious people running and hoping not to be blocked by those people who doesn’t follow the basic rule of courtesy. And yes, majority at fault are those short distance runners.

  27. good run….

    but need more on organizing the distribution of the medal and lootbag.. specially on the 21K distance….. (ganda ng cooling down sa 21K PILA NG MEDAL&lootbag!!!!)
    3 or more line should be organized for all categories para hindi pila balde and loot bag at medal….

    hope 711 take serious actions for next year run.

    expecting 711 year2015 to be great run and organized claiming of medal/loot bags.
    salamat

    btw
    buti pa ng 5K runners my special bags and etc from pocari…..

  28. Comments for the run:

    1. Route: nice, best weather for running.
    2. Hydration: Mostly adequate. Except for the stretch from the 16-18km. Firstly, lacking of cups. then, no more water/gatorade/powerade/pocari.
    3. Race organisation. First 16kms. Ok. But last 5 km was very bad. With 3k 5k and 10k runners crowding the race route. it’s hard to run the home stretch.
    4. Loot bags & medal distribution: Total disaster. Runners don’t know where to line up. People waiting in line for 30 mins or more. Must address this in the future.
    5. Finisher’s shirt: Disappointing. Size is free size. I had to give mine away because it doesn’t fit. Also cheap material, (cotton/polyester mix, like company christmas giveaways)

    Overall: Fair. Many things could still be improved.

    • This is my first “official” 10K run for 2012 and I generally agree with the comments of vicrunner. The running community deserves something better. Good luck it the next event!

  29. ok na sana eh.. kaso isang plastic ng condom yung binigay sa akin.. hindi ko alam gagawin kasi sa feb na yung exp. date. joke lang! ahaha! : ) till next run po mga ser ^_^ matagal lang yung distribution ng lootbag at medal. sana sa susunod hindi na ganun.

  30. Congratz to all the runners and to 7-11. A one succssful event of the year.
    may minor lang na observations, sa dami ng mga sumali hindi na anticipate na kukulangin sa hydration lalo ng pabalik na kami…tama ang isang runner din na from 16k to 13k ay nagkaubusan na..kung walang tubig wala namn baso pero may tubig….
    Second, masikip ang alloted space sa mga runners kaya kahit like ng ibang tumakbo ng diretso at mabilis medyo nabagal sila tapos ung iba naman nadaan sa labas ng lane kasi nga gusto nilang umabante.
    Third, ung finisher medal magkakapareho pala ng laki..:-( sa lahat ng catergory from 5 to 21k.

    but overall masaya…ung signage kung nakakailan na kami o gaano na lakayo o kahaba ang takbo namin ay well aware kami.. sa mga freebies ay sobrang dami pero sa dami nga ng mga participants yun din ang kinahaba ng mga pila hehehehe…

    til next run. God Bless and happy running!

  31. Ran my fourth 21k and everything was good until the 15k when hell broke loose. I really needed to hydrate at the 15k point not with water but hopefully with a sports drink after eating Snickers to boost me in the last 6k. But then the booth personnel greeted me with ‘Sensya na po wala nang cups at Gatorade, eto na alng po bote ng (1 liter) tubig’. (Seriously, they were offering runners to carry extra weight at that point of the race???!!!) I panicked because I know my body well that at that point I would suffer from cramps because of the lack of hydration. I cramped at 16k, 19k and the last 1k as a result…Despite this, I wanted to finish strong but there were just too many runners from other categories to block your way that I even ran outside the cones and against the vehicles just to give way to walkers and selfie takers. It seems they were really just after the quantity of runners than the quality of the run…It’s about profit from sponsors and not about the runners. Despite having that volume of runners, they give a COTTON finisher’s shirt with no marks of the distance you finished. For just P100 more, a runrio race would ‘spoil’ you with banana, sponge, ice cold water, Gatorade, bigger medal and a very high quality singlet and finisher shirt. I will not join this race next year because of this experience.

  32. It was a good run. Problem lang walang hydration na para sa 21k at 16k runners nung last 6 kms. Ang dami daming 5k runners wala ng madaanan yung mga long distance runners tapos ang daming nagpapapicture sa u-turn even sa tollgate. Baka siguro first time nila pero nakakabother sya kase kailangan mong umiwas iwas pa. Yung medal di special walang difference sa iba. Me kalawang pa yung nakuha ko, mukhang matagal ng nakastock at yung claiming ng lootbag at medal ang gulo gulo para kang nasa divisoria, ang dadamot pa nung nagbibigay ng powerade at water me kasunod akong runners humihingi ayaw nilang magbigay. Parang mas nabigyan ng pansin yung mga short distances. The rest ok naman. Sana po magimprove lang next year pati race kit claiming. Ok din sana kung maglalagay kayo ng chocolates sa daan para sa mga long distance runners. Parang yung sa Cebu Marathon. Dami nyo naman pong sponsor. Peace :p

    • boss parehas na parehas tayo ng concern pati dun sa namimigay ng powerade saka water ako yata ung ayaw bigyan ah hehehe napamura pa tuloy ako…. hindi ko malaman kung saan nagsitakbo ung mga nagsasabing maganda ung run eh hindi ata sa 7-11, ok ung route pero pagdating mo sa dulo bottle neck na lalo na pag u-turn… pati ung mga nagpapapicture sa tollgate parang mga ewan…

  33. runtime and 7-11: kindly rectify that runner 62093-b of wave b (16k) is a female who crossed the finish line at 6:52 am. she should have been a medalist. runtime encoded her in the male category.

  34. on my watch 2hrs 53mins sana mas maaga kaya lang hell ung layo ng hydration nung pabalik for 21K runner tapos after the race dun ako nag cramps sa haba ng pila sa looth at medal wala ngang designated km sa fin shirt para ka lang tumakbo kahit 3K….

  35. Ang haba ng pila sa mga freebies! San mabilis ang pili dahil sa bilis ng pamimigay? Sa TRUST booth. Haha.. Ayos ang hydration!

  36. Just my two cents. Those who are worried, don’t mind the cheaters, they’re only cheating themselves, and they know it. Last thing 7/11 needs is ANOTHER line-up . . . for coloured bracelets in the middle of my run – let that one be. Hydration varies greatly across all races, I carried my own and always do. I was thinking maybe I didn’t need to, but apparently I did! Speaking of which, AFTER race … where was the water?? The first drink I found – Coca Cola!? I downed two cups and hurried back to my room (yes, I travelled in for this one) and I didn’t go all the way back for whatever “the booth” is or was. What’s with the two lonely ‘Port-o-lets’ where people need them and the endless line of them too far away from everything?? Bottlenecks – yeah that’s the first time I’ve ever had to line up in a queue to cross a finish line. The marshals were more worried about the next race about to start than the exhausted finishing runners coming in, those runners are fresh . . . let them dodge us!! My Garmin also measured in at 16.25 km and I can tell by looking at my run that accuracy was bang on the money. Anyway I’d rather it a little long than too short. Too bad, my racing shirt is the right torso size but geez! can you cut the neck and armholes a bit bigger. I got an XXL already (and I’m only a Large in North American sizing for Adidas and Under Armour). Finisher shirt? Yup, way too snug. Also too bad, I could have worn it around. Oh well, holiday present it is . . . Rankings? Great! May I at least filter by gender (though age band would also be nice too).

  37. 1st 21km run ko to. Lunod ako sa energy drink. Hehehehe. Ang saya ng Run. Medyo fail lang sa distribution ng finisher kit pero oks lang. Dami din freebies na Condom! hahahaa

  38. I ran 21k, The run was very disorganized, they should have had separate routes for the diff. categories I had a hard time with the congestion during and after the run, had to stop at some points because there were too many people. Also I nearly bumped into other runners because some parts of the route were too dark. The finisher shirts were crap no distance indicated and no available sizes. Also I was expecting it to be dry-fit. I didn’t even know they had other freebies aside from the loot bag because of the congestion. For me the event was a huge dissapointment

  39. sa inyong mga lower catergory flood sa hydration. pero dun sa mga galing ng cavitex un pabalik puro wala na.

  40. Tsk.Tsk. Always comparing other organizers to that Afro haired guy. Tsk.Tsk. Again, apologies Sir Jeff.
    Buti na lang 5k lang ako. Hindi ko naabutan ang congestion sa distribution, sa last 2km, sa hydration station.
    Mental Strategy din kasi yan eh. Kung parepareho ang ibibigay na runners entitlement sa mga finishers, bakit ka pa tatakbo sa mas mataas na category? Alam ko mileage din un, pero kung habol mo hassle free event, eh di mag5k ka lang. Mabilis matatapos at mabilis mo makukuha finishers kit mo.

    • Mental strategy? 5K? Try running 21K and up, then talk to me about mental strategy. It’s a pity that most people aim for loot bags rather that see running as a sports, that requires discipline.

    • i agree with james… and do you know why other organizers are being compared to that afro-haired guy? because the afro-haired guy is on top of the food-chain when it comes to organizing running events (that’s why he’s the organizer of the only AIMS-IAFF certified marathons here)…

    • 5k nga lang pero sub 20 mins naman… express… hehehe

      kanya kanyang trip lang naman. Sa akin naman ok lang kung loot bag ang pang motivate. Pwedeng i-take advantage ito para ma motivate bumilis.

      Sa totoo lang may advantages din ang mauuna
      1. minimal ang congestion sa route
      2. mas mababa ang risk maubusan ng hydration
      3. madaling makakuha ng finisher kit
      4. at mas mataas ang chance na makuha yung desired na size ng finisher shirt
      5. dami pa freebies sa booths

      At para bumilis, dyan na papasok ang dicipline, perseverance, mental strategy, etc…

      kung medal ang habol, naku basta umabot na lang sa cutoff… Pero mas ok pa rin yon kaysa sa wala.

      yung iba naman cash prize ang habol para mag-improve.

      Kahit anong rason ng mga tao, basta ba na motivate syang tumakbo pwede na yon… Malawak naman ang daan para sa lahat eh… basta tumabi lang para mag selfie :-)

  41. anu b tlga ang prioty ng mga photographer? 3k 5k 10k 21k? poseble pong wla kmi jan…………………………………………………………………

  42. ako rin ndi parin ma view yung race result sa myrunti.me website. their website still down. no collecting any data.

  43. Pocari said freebies were for 5km runners only, duh!?! they should have organized separate event for 5km distance runners,.

    Like the sentiments of others, ang layo ng hydration stations para sa mga pabalik na 21km at 16km runners. Pag dating mo naman sa hydration station kumpulan na ang mga 10km/5km runners sa pagkuha ng drinks. Sana next time i-distribute nila ng mas maganda yong mga hydration stations.

  44. ok naman so far sa 5k … medyo crowded but if you do an effort to run faster to be in the front medyo ginhawa na. medyo crowded nga un hydrations kaya di na ako nakigulo. and most of the hydrations were from Pocari Sweat na sponsor lang kaya wag natin sila sisihin. kulang sa WATER stations. distribution of medals and lootbags medyo sablay. panalo ang sponsor booths as usual. overall it’s a fairly organized run lalo if youve been to much worse ones. at the end of the day let’s be happy na we finished safe and sound at may medals and shirts pa to boot.

  45. My first 10k. Ok, masaya, and enjoy. Sana may category sign sa finishers kit distribution. Halo halo. Muntik ko na di makuha yung medal ko kasi 5k pinilahan ko pala. Madami daming taga 10k na kasabay ko. Buti nalang katabi lang yung sa 10k at napakiusapan ko kunin ko yung medal.

  46. bakit di ko po mai-open yung site ng results… laging error….. may iba pa bang site yun….. kahapon pa ako nag try pero until now ganun pa rin…. anyone who can help me…. tnx

  47. Sablay lang po tlga yung mga ibang runners jan kulang lang po sa disiplina lahat gusto mauna sa pagkuha ng loot bag ayaw magsipila.. talagang tatagal pag kuha ng loot bag kasi ang daming sumisingit..

  48. I have to agree with this. Walang perfect run. Kse our run itself may not be perfect. Have you ran Sante Barley? Mas hydrated naman di hamak sa 7-11 run..
    People, just a thought.. dont complain too much about hydration. BRING YOU HYDRATION BELT, and use that.. I have mine kaya di ako mashadong nauhaw and i used it for refill. maraming areas for improvement but mas marami pang worst run kesa dito. i had my own share or complaints. not to harsh nga lang siguro.. And GUYS, we are runners by heart. wag nyo naman i-seperate and 3k runners and 5k runners sating half marathon-ers.. we started in that distance.. di naman agad nag 21k tayo di ba?
    Sa iba naman, run etiquette 101 ang reviewhin.. bawal naman tlaga ang selfie sa running route. ay sus.
    PEACE! Lets just ENJOY! :)

    • grabe nman kung di ka malunod sa dami ng hydration points ok,pero sna nxt time may discipline nmana sa atin mga runners sa pgttpon ng cups or palstic bottles ntin maging responsible garbage thrower tau buti wlang nadulas sa mga ngkalat na palstics cups and bottles sa race route ntin sna discipline and concern for other safety ang isaisip ntin just a reminder sa mga colleague ntin.see u next marathons just enjoy the benefits of running.gbu all.

  49. Daming local elites ang sumali sa event. Kaso kahit anong gawain nila hindi talaga kayang makipag sabayan sa mga foreigners.

    Buti na lang at may separate na “non-monetary” prizes para sa mga top Filipino runners. Kaso ang kailangan talaga nila eh yung cash prize.

    Napansin ko rin na madami na ang mga runners na nag sub 1:50 sa 21k. Base sa resulta, 162 runners. Pero nung Unilab 2010, 69 lang ang naka sub 1:50. Talagang dumadami na ang determinadong mag improve!

    • There was a “non-monetary” prize for the top Filipino 21K M/F. A fully sponsored trip to the Beijing marathon…

  50. mga sir… pno nangyari na ang official time ko at chip time ay pareho lang?,, nasa bandang gitna ko eh,, may ilng mins din bago ako naka cross ng start.

  51. solve na solve sa hydration, nagkaubusan ng baso kya bote bote nalang ang pnagbbgay nung mga marshall. haha

  52. since ito yung first fun run ko, msasabi ko na okay dahil ang daming freebies although crowded talaga and puro selfie lang sa 3k. overall, nagenjoy naman kami.

  53. kaya pala hindi ako pinayagan ng tadhana na tumakbo dahil crowded, magulo at naubusan ng hydration pabalik…we 21k runners need this hydration especially sa last leg..kawawa naman kung walang mainum, walang saging etc. next time sana ma-organize na maayos..hiwalay ang 16k and 21k. just like other marathons…yun pagseselfie, ibang lugar din…ayusin din naman pag may time…

    • yes, sir… pareho tayo experience… wala gatorade at tubig masyado sa taas, last 4k na lng yta ako nakainom.
