di ako tatakbo dito
naover sa mahal pg iisipan kong mabuti to:(
what if i dont have a credit card and just walk in sa adidas store to register hindi na puwede?labo…
people who have credit card lang ang race na toh…very strict pa…gud luck sa mga rich people dyan…
@gumihorunner: i’m actually inquiring if they would still open in-store registration, but for now, yes, you need to register online, pwede naman siguro pa register sa may credit card. :)
yap i agree with mr. carlo, does this mean that if your not using any kind of credit card you cannot join the run? you should pririoritized those people who are willing to pay it in cash.. credit cards payments should only be an option for those who want to join and pay it in card cause the fee is too expensive already…
Run para sa rich ito..:(
Mas mahal pa ang 16.8 sa 21k?
Ayaw nila ng cash payment??
may discrimination ata dito ah! paano kaming hindi mayayaman at walang credit card? dapat sinabi nalang nila na adidas king of the road 2011 “takbong pangmayaman”!
@Yror Seter: I second the motion!
im not from manila, punta pa ba ako sa taguig just to get the KIT sa october 10-12
…. wala ba registration sa Mall, and on the spot ang pag kuha ng singlet…just like other events….andami nyo adidas stores nationwide…or kahit luzon lang…
madami po sasali sa inyo kung may cash payment na lang….
Adidas king of the RICH 2011, It would be better if they have in store registration tapos makukuha agad ang singlet. Unfair naman sa early registration tapos by Oct 10-12 pa makukuha ang singlet. tapos sasabihin na ubos na yung requested size kaya next one na lang….dapat early reg na cash then sa late reg na ang credit card.or just have both.cash and credit card.hassle kasi kung maghahanap ka pa ng may credit card…Hope maging open minded ang organizers…
Adidas king of the RICH 2011…
atlast naka registered na rin naki swipe lang ha ha ha.
Ang arte ng race na ito! Dadayo nlang ako sa Butuan to join the Milo Marathon provincial leg, hahaha!

@desperatedaughter, afaik wala pong finishers shirt. medal lang po :)
bago ko nalaman na me free run promo eh nkabili nko ng adizero boston pwede reconsider naman para maka avail naman ako ng free run…. what will i do… i bought it last july 4….
Sana may isa pang affordable event na tumapat dito..hmm meron nga ba?
I bet, despite all the negative criticisms hurled against KOTR, this race will be a hit. Yung 2009 KOTR was poorly handled, but then the following year ang dami pa ding sumali. I guess runners in general run for the sake of running, and to be one with the community. I just hope that race organizers don’t just take advantage of our tolerance and passion for this sport.
dami nating problema mga runners….. itakbo na lang natin yan….. good luck po sa Sunday!
