  1. Singlet design may be viewed at Runrio.com; I have a feeling kahit medyo pricey yung event, dadagsain pa din, and people will still beg for slots pag naubusan. :D

    Happy running everyone!

  2. ano ba yan? ang competitor na hyundai – nagpa-free run kaya yung isang runner hyundai tuloy ang sasakyan niyang binili mainly because of the free run sponsored by the company. e ang chevrolet … sobrang mahal magpa-register – talo nyo pa ang Nat-Geo run na magpapatayo ng museum kaya medyo expensive ang registration and ang dami naming nag-join. Hindi ka na nga tatakbo dito … wag na lang ding bumili ng sasakyan nila. Madaming runs na puwedeng salihan that are affordable

  3. IMO, the reg. fee is reasonable because of Php 1,000 New Balance Cash Voucher, chance to win a car and Chevrolet Centennial Swatch watch for the 100th Finisher in each category…. =)

  4. Changed my mind this event is so cool, definitely will mark my calendar on this..not only you have worth P1K cash voucher of NB you also get a chance to win cool prize..

  5. NO. its not reasonable.. para tayong niluluto sa sariling mantika huh!.. One, yung value/price ng giveaway (kuno) na car ay dun din kukunin sa registration fee so para na rin tayong nag ambag ambag para bumili ng car.. Two, the P1,000.00 gift voucher is only applicable to certain models of NB shoes.. so whats the use??? how a convenient way of disposing of shoe models that didn’t reach the expected sales target..haisst! just my opinion.. anyway we have a choice naman kung sasali or not.. peace!

  6. P850 for a 5k run??? Hintayin niyo nalang walang mag-register…gaya nung dati sa Blue Water Run..walang nag register dahil di makatarungan yung presyo kasama mo lang tatakbo yung mga brazilian models…binigay ng 50% off yung registration fee.

  7. mukhang okey naman kasi may 1000 na voucher eh so reasonable na din plus new balance na shirt tapos kung first 100 ka sa bawat category may swatch ka na relo
    hmm pwede na din pero siyempre iba iba ang tao kanya kanya nang pananaw ang mahalaga we run for reason not because ito ang uso..

  8. wala na po mura sa panahon ngayon. lahat tumataas. pansin nyo naman siguro yan sa presyo ng gasolina. i should know because i am spearheading a fun run for our organization. you’d prolly fall off your chair just knowing how much a venue costs. and the logistics that goes with it.

    ‘sides the sponsors can only absorb so much. runrio uses a proven formula for race organization and at times it is the discretion of the sponsor whether to follow it or not. and that is the sad fact of life. btw, the P1k entry has been broken since last year

    most of you have said it, there are other races one can opt to join. and to those who will be signing up for this event, see you all! a nice warmup for RU3’s 32k =)

  9. //@cecille: we’ll run wherever the road takes us to…

    this race is a little to pricey..but for 25k..i think it’s justified..i just have to save up a little more..ahahah..! and compared to nikon run — Php800.00 for 10k..aawtz..!

  10. YES! Lumabas ang Adobo run. Doon na lang ako guys! May libre pang pa-party. For a change ng oras ng takbo. Mas mura din. 950 ang run dito for 10k, duon 750. Less 200 for my fare going there! Kita kits sa Adobo run!

  11. makikiraan lang po ha. namamahalan tayo sa runrio event pero dinyo ba napapansin na may quality side naman like:

    1. water station & energy drink banana station.
    2. medic and kilometer markers
    3. on time ang gun start
    4. timing devise use.

    sakin lang mura nga tapos after ng race reklamo na kulang ang tubig walang kilometer marker kulang marshall walang medic etc.

    just think of a safe and good event and the enjoyment of the run. that is money cant buy. ok run safe.

  12. Yes, everyone has a choice . . sad fact lang is that the other choice might be a bitter pill to swallow. Agree with some of the comments, pricey fun runs are not that fun anymore. Hope future organizers can sacrifice some of their earnings to bring back joy in fun competitions.

  13. may i suggest po na lagyan naman ng line per category sa mga Booth after ng Run, specially sa 21k..kasi after ng run, sisiksikan na sa mga booth and kung pipila man ang 21k finishers, malamang nasa dulo na ng Line, kagaya na lang last rexona, yamaha, unilab leg 2 run…di na kami makapila sa dami…
    mas ok sana kung may Line for each category…kung pwde lang po….i know its for fun ang running pero gusto rin namin makakuha nung mga freebies, magazines…etc…, baka kasi this time may pa raffle pero it will take more an hour para pumila………… thank you and more power

  14. dito ako ta takbo,sana mag-pa raffle ng isang kotse.tsaka masulit naman namin yung mga patakbo,ma-ayus yung race result,hydration booth,thanks na lang sa sponsor,

  15. i just saw that there will be a “special loot bag”. My question is … how special would be the loot bag … will there be car key that will be put randomly on these ‘special loot bags?” I am just wondering …

  16. Quite expensive, but mainly the reason why organizers announced it in advanced so runners can save up for it. Pero basta runrio, panalo. Ganda ng NB shirt, P850 regular price ng shirt.
    We all got an option, those who were able to raise fund before the date may run, sa mga medyo nabitin sa budget next run naman. Peace, keep on running pipol!

  17. hi guys. please help.
    my longest run is 5k-ish.
    i run 1-3X a week.
    it is my first time to sign up for a run (run for your life 09.11.2011) 3k only…
    my next would be nike run manila, 10k, on 10.15.2011…
    can i possibly finish 25k on nov 6?
    57 days from now…
    (chevrolet new balance power run 2011)
    kahit walk/run lng…
    help, anyone? =)

  18. yes! you can finish 25k on nov 6, kung dadalasan mo ang pagtakbo ng 1ok o mahigit… basta wag kalng abutan ng cut off n 3hrs and 45mins.

  19. ladycroft… pwede yan pero you have to do some runs during the week… i tried 2 consecutive 5K runs(pagcor and yakult run), then 3 consecutive 10K hyundai, nat. geo and run for japan.. tapos nag jump ako 21k goldilocks…but during the week i usually do 2 runs na 7k tuesday at thursday…. ngayon hinihintay ko axn run sa sept 18 ,, nagkuha ko this afternoon yung power run black shirt for 25K pero kabado ako kasi sasali rin ako after a week sa unilab leg 3 na 32k kaya medyo gagawa rin ako ng bagong programa for my runs….what i usually do is a in my long runs is i maintain a regular phase during my first 10k…then the remaining is a run walk combination…then full stride on my final 100meters…bring gu and water during your long run…good luck

  20. sumali rin kami sa ust run for your life… sa sunday…yun na ang aking run for my axn…on the 18 of sept…medyo maulan …kung my heart rate monitor kang watch .. very effective yan para sa run mo… monitor mo sarili mo…pag napagod… try to rest for 1 to 2 min..then regulate your run… wag kang sumabay sa iba….

  21. maganda yung medallion at sulit yung new balance na black shirt….kailangan mo lang talagang gamitin yung 1,000 peso discount before nov 2011 kasi one month lang ata yung gamit…problema lang recovery para makatakbo sa leg 3 ng Unilab… one year anniversary ko sa takbo…i started last year Nov 2010 3k ng unilab

  22. thanks renegade. maganda nga ung medallion dito and shirt, plus the raffle and GC. i was gonna sign up sana for axn kaso nag Run & Help for CWF nlng ako on 9/18 at the global city. Good luck saten this sunday. wala kong heart rate monitor, nike sportband lng… i havent signed up for chevrolet kase di ko pa tlg sure kung kayanin 25k. i want a medal. hehe. and maybe another medal on dec 4 on the animo run 21k. haha. wish ko lng. =) thanks ulit renegade.

  23. //@ladyjcroft: yes, you can…but it’s too soon to get into the 25k category..ideally, you should have at least done a 15k run before you hit 21..

    nonetheless, you have time to prep up for it…increase the number of running hours per practice run, and your mileage per week. this should help you prepare for the event…don’t forget to take extra care for you legs/feet..and proper nutrition…

    there there topics that you can browse through in the forum. join the PF community by clicking on the ‘community’ button on the upper right hand corner of this page…goodluck..see you then..!

  24. kung ayaw nyo sumali dahil unreasonable cya. better yet wag na kayo mag comment at sumali. check other run events that you can afford..kasi for us this is definitely reasonable.. thanks!

  25. nakita ko na yung shirt ng 25k maganda sya,yung quality okay,kanina robinson ortigas,yun nga lang yung registration mahal talaga,tapos yung pa-raffle nila na para sa finisher all category,luma-labas na binayaran din yung kotse,swerte lang talaga ang ma-bubunot,dun ka panalo

  26. mdyo naguluhan ako nung nagregister dito sa chevrolet new balance power run, they already gave the medallion upon registering. so upon finishing a 25k run, i think mdyo mawawala un essence of accomplishment kc nsa iyo n un medallion. sna ibigay n lang un after the race, or baka may finisher medal pa ibibigay bukod sa medallion…

  27. @SuPLaDo_aKo: thank you so much for the info =)
    enjoyed my first fun run kanina at Run for ur Life.
    although 3k only ang category, parang 5k ang tinakbo ko. pano late na, i almost missed the “gunstart” (na walang gun, drums lng). from parking at luneta children’s playground, takbo agad papuntang roxas. one cup of water lng. walang breakfast, late pa natulog. no time for stretching. haha! di pa naguumpisa ang run, hinihingal na.
    marameng lessons learned today.

    cant wait for my next run next weekend at the Fort.
    im still undecided on what category il choose for this power run 2011. but i really wanna finish 25k. hahaha! suicide run.

  28. sana naman may finisher shirt silang ibigay at medal bukod sa medallion n nakasama sa rece kit… first 25k ko ito then diretso sa 32k ng leg 3 ng run united sa Nov 12… pero mauuna sa lahat 21k ng AXN…. :D may Nike p pla. sarap talagang magpapawis..

  29. @ladycroft: don’t overkill yourself..don’t push yourself too hard, you need at least 8weeks of training for your 1st 25K run and it will not be easy, you need to follow a very specific program. Dedication is a must and passion is totally required here. Stick with 5-10K distances first..wag mo pilitin sarili mo..take it slowly ok..I know you can finish the 25K on Nov 25 but hey, it will not be easy and your body will be in a lot of pain…treat it nicely ok. Hinay hinay lang..soon, marathon ka na, for now..take it slowly..a piece of advice..

  30. @tortoiserunner: thank you. =) dibale if running 25k for the first time on nov 6 is not safe for me… then maybe on the dec 4 animo run… 21k =) kaya na cguro un, more than 8 weeks na. sana manalo nalng sa raffle whatever category ill join on nov 6. hahaha. thanks ulit.

  31. //@bari: nice one..! ahahah…

    @barefootdaves: that’s right..when you register, you got all the stuff in your race tote bag, and that includes your medallion. quite heavy, huh..!

    //btw, registration has resumed. got my racekit at ROX today..woohoo..! it’s quite pricey, yeah…we can save up a little more for racekits..ahahah..

  32. @ladyjcroft: madam take it easy lang po sana gradual lang po masarap po talaga tumakbo at di maalis na maging excited na makatapos nang mga takbo kasi healthy na personal achievements pa pero sana iconsider niyo po yung health niyo i mean na wag ma puwersa sapat na training po at nutrients po ang kailangan…di ko po kayo tinatakot pero 2 months ago sobrang sunubsob ko po sarili ko sa takbo from 5k nagjump ako agad sa 16k ayun nagka tendonitis ako at di ako nakatakbo nang almost 2 months din no i learned na not to much,,maganda po ang interval trainings..advice lang po ito mam for your health and more years pa to hit the road. :)

  33. manalangin na lang kayo na kayo manalo sa kotse,yun nga lang,heavy ang dami ng program,pag-na-inip ka uuwe ka rin,kasi matu-tusta ka sa init,mag-dala ka ng pamay-pay,ang tagal bago mag-raffle,

  34. this is quite a good run to choose if not for the high registration fees which is about 250-350 Php (per category) higher than other running events. In simple business math … it seems that Chevrolet will just get the budget of the car (to be raffled) to the runners themselves. So the company will be able to advertise their products without shelling out much money and would even get the budget from the participants. Well, let’s see what the contents of their so called “special loot bag” – shall we expect many and worthy ameneties from this loot bag? And of course the basic necessities of a good run – enough hydration, appropriate kilometer markings, courteous and organized marshalls, medics on-the-go, complete and timely posting of official time results. let’s see if this expensive registration will meet our expectations.

  35. if there will be 10000 runners that will be joining, Chevrolet can collect 2.5 to 3.5 million pesos (from the 250 to 350 Php difference of their registration fees compared to other running events. This will be good enough for 2 cars to raffle off. That is if there will be only 10000 runners participating for all categories.

  36. sayang di ako makakasali dito…can’t afford din medyo super pricey nga sayang sana may buddy run category na mas mura hehehe…anyways gudlak sa lahat ng mga runners and hope may manalo ng kotse!
