AXN Runs Philippines – September 18, 2011


As an action and adventure channel, AXN is best known for our adrenaline-pumping lifestyle events such as AXN Big Challenge, AXN Xtreme and of course, our very own Emmy-nominated original production The Amazing Race Asia (TARA). TARA champions Richard Hardin and Richard Hererra did all pinoys proud when they came home victorious last season. No doubt, the Richards are the very embodiment of pinoys’ passion for the active lifestyle. In support of that, AXN is now taking on Manila’s running scene, with its very first running event – AXN Runs Philippines!

  1. Finishline take note on the comments..” ano ba to, race to run or race to register”. Hahaha. Another, “I’m beginning to doubt AXN and FINISHLINE’s Integrity.” Funny ha but really. Race hasn’t started yet already so many mistakes.

  2. It is posted in the AXN website, the first 1,000 registered runners will get the finishers’ shirt. It is the same policy as the runs where the first 100 registrants get an extra singlet.

    Well, you can’t please everybody. If it is the other way around then those who would not be among the first 1,000 finishers would complain that they likewise exerted the same effort so why should they not receive a shirt as well.

  3. @panis

    i believe the point being raised is the integrity of the sponsor (AXN) and the organizer (Finishline). it was originally mentioned that the 1st 1000 finisher WILL get the shirt. turns out it will be based on the bib numbers. such a letdown if you ask me

    who made the decision? why they did it? perhaps we would never know. i pray they would also not change their minds with the critical necessities that a race requires. who knows, it might turn out that only the 1st 1000 runners gets the chance to be able to drink water

  4. @barefootdaves

    Yes I agree that they did change their mind. I was also already thinking of my race strategy to make sure that I land in the first 1,000, such as where to position myself during the race. It must have been a letdown to those who registered late but runs fast. Also it would have been a better motivation to train harder.

    But when they changed their mind, which is in their prerogative to do so for as long as it was announced early enough (which the organizers did so), it is also obvious that those who registered early were happy, gauging from some of the posts here. To revert back would be a letdown to those who registered early and were pleased by the recent development.

    That is my point. You cannot please everybody. The same is true when scheduling runs, some would complain if they have registered for another run already and some would be happy if they have not registered for any run yet, like what happened here.

    Anyway just my two cents worth.

  5. I’ve also been in RUNNR Store, Trinoma last Sunday (Aug. 28) to register for 5K but was so disappointed when the crew in-charge said that the registration closed Saturday night (Aug. 27). I asked why and how come when all the ads had written that the last day of registration is 08-28-2011. The crew was hesitant to answer furthermore questions for I am not the only registrant who was there that time, and according to him he’s not one of the event organizer team (crew lang daw siya ng Runnr) so we respected that.

    So, as instructed, what we did is to jot down our names and contact number for the organizer will going to do their effort to give us their feedback within the day. But I’m feeling so sad, long week-end had passed and also got back to work but i haven’t got any single text of information from the organizer :(

  6. wow naman,my trafic advisory na sa ortigas,sana yung hydration booth,tsaka lagayan ng bag,yun lang po pki-usap namin,,thanks sa AXN,tsaka sponsor,organizer

  7. ok yun, dapat 1st 1000 finishers, pero how about the shirt SIZES?,

    unahan na lang yung first 1000 sa available size, baka mag ala clown yung small built sa laki ng shirt, and “winnie the pooh” yung mkakuha ng small shirt incase maubusan na ng available size …

  8. [Update!] All 21K Participants with race numbers 0001-1000 will receive a Jockey Technical Finisher Tee, upon their finish.

    Aasahan ko ito kaya ayusin ninyo AXN masyadong big event itong ninagawa ninyo at ang # ko’y pasok sa 1-1000

    Hindi ito yung paniniwala nila na 1st 1000 runners na lumampas sa finishline.

    Just to clear things up..

    kulang na lang ang sizing :D

  9. @panis

    it is understandable if it was a late registration. beyond the regular registration period. but none was put into place. that meant everyone will be getting a chance as long as you finish early

    i would be terribly pissed if my bib was no longer within the range of eligible for a finisher shirt especially for a race that i’ve trained hard and paid the same amount with the rest of the participants

    i just hope that the number of slots for the 21k category is equal to a thousand then that would settle things and perhaps the reason why the runners are satisfied with this decision

    before the comments becomes astray, see you all there. good luck to all participants =)

  10. inaabot kc ako ng 4 1/2 hrs sa daan bago ko matapos ung run. buti nlng maaga akong nag p reg at makakakuha ako ng finisher shirt n inaasamasam ko.. d po ako tulad ng iba n mamagagaling n tumakbo. pasenya n po kung mas n una po akong mag p register sa mga bihasa n tumakobo.

  11. same here Vladz:) im not a fast runner. i just run for fun that’s why im so happy that i’ll get a chance to have a finisher shirt but still i’ll try my best to run as fast as i could para di naman nakakahiya sa ibang runners.

  12. bago route sarap tumakbo,sana maraming hydration booth,para sa 21k,yun lang po pki-usap naming mga runners,tsaka yung race result sana ma-ayos,importante po sa min yun,thanks

  13. nagpregister ako nung sunday pero sabi naubusan daw sila ng bib number magtetext nlang daw sila para maclaim ko ung bib at singlet.. pero it’s been a week already.. any info?

  14. Indeed JP Navarrete. It is also my concern with regards with the parking (at Ortigas) unlike at BGC. I hope organizers will designate feasible and safe parking both for 4 and 2 wheeled. Isip ko nga super agahan ko na lang then maki-usap sa Yamaha Y-Zone since I am Yamaha Riders Club member to park my ride. I hope my plan will works… Honestly, mas excited ako makabili ng PF Tech Shirt after the race rather than the actual race… God bless… Ride safe(for Riders)! Run Safe!!!

  15. my mga parking area naman dun sa my emerald,yun nga lang mga runners my bayad,di ko lang alam kung mag-kano,pero malaki naman yun,dalawa ata ang malapit dun,agahan nyo na lang para sa may mga sa sakyan,para mka-park agad kayo,

  16. Joey, we chose the race already. Trouble is no text yet from you guys. No singlet, no race kit. Haven’t heard from Mr Vince, AXN or Finishline since i registered Aug 28.

  17. i just received an email from angelica of, timing chips are scheduled to arrive within the next 2 days.The officer will just send an SMS/text message once kit is packed and ready for pick up.

  18. 1st time ko pa-akyat,dito ko masu-subukan kung gano katibay tuhod ko,tsaka sa my ruby st,my isang parking area din dun,my bayad nga lang,mala-laki naman ang mga parking area nila,sana ma-ayos ang hydration booth,tsaka yung mga lagayan ng mga bag,yun na lang po ang pki-usap namin sa organizer.thanks

  19. macjolly: i suggest you should go to nearest reg site and bring whatever docs you have para mabigay sayo singlet or race kit. Lapit na race, sana maganda weather.

  20. sana tayong mga filipino pag-my gustuhan tayong takbuhan,pa register agad tayo,dun sa bi bigay ng AXN,para sa 001-1000 na ma-aga mag-pa regiter my free shirt.eto naman pabor dun sa ma-aga mag-pa regiter,okay lang yun,sana tayong mga runners tuma-takbo tayo para sa health natin,importante sana di sila pumalpak sa race result,hydration booth.tsaka yung lagayan ng bag,good luck runners,kita kits na lang

  21. pasakitan na naman ng mga paa to,ilang araw na lang,medyo new route,tsaka maraming pa-akyat,challenge di ba mga runners,HYDRATION BOOTH lang po sana marami,kasi yung sa mga 21k mahirap ma-dehydrate,yun lang po kasi paki-usap namin,sana ma-e-provide nyo po yun,thanks

  22. agree po ako kay thunder foot,hydration booth po,kasi medyo malayo yung ta takbuhin namin mga friend ko,nung naka-raan po kasi dalawang mag-kaiba ng event palpak sa hydratin booth,sabay sila ng schedule,kaya ayun tinira sila na palpak daw po yung mga organizer dun,sana okay ang patakbo nyo,tsaka lagayan ng bag,sana ma-ayos.

  23. when and where can we get our singlet? its almost 2weeks since we registered but it seems were not able to get any feedback from the coordinators.

  24. when & where can we get our singlet? its been 2weeks since we registered but it seems we haven’t got any feedback from the coordinators regarding the payment & claiming of singlet. kindly advise ASAP…the even is fast approaching…7days to be exact.

  25. I registered for 21K last Aug.28 at RunnR Trinoma. i was told that they will just send a text message if the race kit is ready, but until i haven’t receive any message yet and it’s been 2 weeks. It’s only 8 days to go before the run.

  26. I got this number when I registered myself and my girl friend early August. This is the number of a certain Pearl who assist me in Runnr Trinoma. Kinulit ko kc siya nung na-pendingan siya ng timing device for 5k. I hope this number will help you for your queries regarding your Singlets and kits. Run Safe!!!

I’ve got my race kit today…..Ung finisher’s shirt ba for those with race number 0001-1000 or ung first 1000 finishers…Un kasi ung sabi sa ibang site..eto nakita ko sa ibang site “For 21K finishers, they will receive a Finisher’s medal. For first 1,000 21K finishers, they will receive a Finisher Shirt”.

  36. naubusan ng finisher’s shirt wala ang pangit ng pag organize.. di na ako sasali pag axn nag organize.. pag finishline nag organize di narin ako sasali :( wala pangit talaga

  37. Grabe tong event na to.. OK na sana from start to finish super swabe… kaya lang nagkatalo after finishing 21K run!!! Napakaunprofessional at very unorganized ng handing out ng mga finishers medal at specially nung shirt!! Parang namigay lang ng relief goods sa mga nasalanta eh.. then hinayaan pang magkagulo dun sa pagkuha ng shirt at medal.. then the worst thing… kahit sino sino na lng kumuha ng mga medal at shirt di na nila sinunod yung distribution for the 0000 to 1000 BIB no. for the shirt, same as yung medal pati ibang category nakakuha ng medal.. Ano ba yun napakaunfair nun d b? and the last thing is …. yung size ng singlet… ano yun puro na lang small/women size yung natira? hehehehe 21K? di man lang nila naanticipate na most of the runners sa 21K ay men!! Pede nmn nila yun icheck dun sa mga nagregister yung sizes ng mga runners within the 0 to 1000 BIB para maclaim yung right sizes or pwede sana to follow na lang yung shirt/medal via delivery sa house at least sure sila na yung within that no. lang yung makakarecieved nun.. This is my 2nd time na makasali on this event with finishline as organizer and both FAILED!!! Sorry but this one didn’t pass on my expectation compared to other running organizer… I know you know who I’m talking about.. 2 thumbs down!!! ;-(

  38. “This is my 2nd time na makasali on this event with finishline as organizer and both FAILED!!! Sorry but this one didn’t pass on my expectation compared to other running organizer… I know you know who I’m talking about.. 2 thumbs down!!! ;-(”

    I mean 2nd time on different event with the same organizer (finishline)..

  39. Is their any hope to claim our finisher shirt?-the 21K Participants with race numbers 0001-1000.. will receive a Jockey Technical Finisher Tee, upon their finish. Sadly we receive nothing. What happened?

  40. Ang saya saya ng Run Rizal! may Lyceum Pep Squad at Drum Squad pa nag perform habang tumatakbo mga runners! tapos binabasa pa mga runners kc may mga firetrucks. I saw Mayor Lim! cool! very organized ang Run Rizal. dami nka costume!

  41. mas bad trip ako, grabe talaga. ako ang naglakad ng papers para mg-register kasama dalawa na tatakbo sa amin. pero sa race result, wala bib number at pangalan namin sa race result. bib nr ko 0202 and kay sir 0201. kahit picture man lang wala kami. ano yun, tumakbo kami na walang kamalaymalay na di pala kami kasali sa takbo. naturingan pa AXN sikat tapos di organized ang activity. may pa sprint-sprinting pa kami sa finish line tapos walang medal na naghihintay kasi pipila muna para mkakuha ng medal & Freebies. ito ang pinaka-worst marathon na nasalihan ko, half-marathon pa nga lang yan.

  42. Having a permanent chip, means it should have been checked well before they give it out.. My Bib 0419, did not show up on the results posted! Technical malfunction or just poor organizing?! How could I trust this chip to work with the next Finishline event? The worse feeling of a runner is making a good run, and not having the official results to back it up! Pleaseee do check on this!! Know some runners who are in the same predicament, and are as disappointed with the race organizers!

  43. ngaun lang ako ulet nakapagonline…well i enjoy the event naman sana…. kaya lang, sadness was?… di ako nakapagclaim ng finisher shirt?…naubos na daw?..why?…what happen???? sana nman dba pinaghandaan yan??? dahi mahaba haba ang preparation na time for that… sana lang po mabigyan nyo lahat na mga 21k runners ng fin shirt dahil isa talaga yan sa reason why we join ur event… THANK YOU in advance!… my bib # 0536… hope for ur response!… Godbless

  44. wala pabang update sa shirt.. binayaran natin yun eh.. nagbayad tayo ng 850 tapos after may nagbayad ng 750 w/o shirt.. dami ko ng na email wala man lang reply
