Powerhouse race directors Eric Emperio (10K), Thumbie Remigio (3K and 5K) and Rio Dela Cruz (21K) will join forces to make this momentous event happen on the said date. The 21K distance is closed to public and will be participated by KBPIP sponsors and partners, and will go around Metro Manila passing by Estero de Paco where the rehabilitation of Pasig River was made.

I know there has been questions on where the funding for last year went!? Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig was able to give us some rehabilitation photos of Estero de Paco for everyone to see the progress that has been made for only a year.

Cleaning Pasig River is no easy task, but the Foundation was able to give a definite timeline and a systematic way on how to attack the problem, in their statement, in 2012 they are targeting the U-BELT area, 2013 would be QC/San Juan/Makati, 2014 would focus on Tondo and Marikina, 2015 is in Laguna, and finally in 2016 – Manila Bay!

Sounds Impossible?! Probably, but i will surely be impossible without your support. I believe in hope at looking into a future where once a majestic Pasig River was clean and alive

Handa ka na bang muling mag Kapit Bisig para sa Ilog Pasig ngayong 2011!?

  1. ah sorry. disregard my query above.
    read it na 21K is closed to public.

    i wonder who would enjoy the 21k more
    the “KBPIP sponsors and partners” or the 21k running public?

    • based on the press-con, they actually acknowledged na naging alay-lakad sya last year, so this year they dedicated an entire road for each 3K, 5K and 10K, may consolidation point lang nga sa SM MOA globe, but let’s see…

  2. //aawtz..! there is DISCRIMINATION here..why can’t they allow runners to participate in the 21k category..? this way, everyone would have the equal chance to see how the rehabilitation of the pasig river/ sewerage is progressing, considering that not only the KBPIP sponsors and partners are contributing to this project.

    //calling the attention of ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc. – KBPIP organizing committee.

  3. @suplado e kauri ka ba nila? we passion runner run for FUN sila running for FUND, oks lang yun marami pa namang darating na run for us. Give them a break konting pa-suplado rin wag ka na tampo. Lets wish them good luck sana tumirik ang araw agad para mainit mabawasan yung kutis nilang flawless in running 21k o kaya umulan din (ala Milo) na me kasamang kulog at kidlat. ^_^

  4. tama. i ran nung 2009 naglakad at walang matakbuhan. nadala. hindi tumakbo nung 2010 at accdg to the participants halos hindi makalakad sa dami. hay. i’ll just register, i will not show up. hehe

  5. @takboista, bakit ayaw mong magpasali dito? e for a good cause naman ang run. nakita mo naman ang result last year diba. kapuso ka ba dude, kaya kontra ka sa run?

    ^-^peace!

  6. if ever ill join this cause, ill donate my time and run for 5K! also a good recovery run after RU3 plus the fact its a RunRio co-partnered event! wohoo!

  7. join na lang po tayo para makatulong sa rehabilitation. kung maging alay lakad okay lang, enjoy na lang natin. ang importante maka-help tayo sa pag-buhay sa ilog pasig. bawi na lang tayo sa ibang run :)

  8. tama si dada join tayo dito kapuso man kapatid o kapamilya o kahit na anu pang kaanu. ang sarap nang feeling na kahit hindi naging ganun kaorganize last year o kung may mga error man eh sumali tayo at sasali tayo after all for sure hindi man direkta o hindi man tayo naging isa sa mga dahilan nang pagkasira nang kalikasan eh anu ba naman yung magtiis tayo at magtiyaga na sumali para naman makatulong hindi man natin makita yung result sa mga susunod pang taon o generation atleast yung mga sumusunod sa atin eh may maaubutan pa…kapit bisig na takbo na ( lakad na :)

  9. @RedCapGuy,

    no problem. at least makatulong man lang tayo sa rehab ng pasig river. though ayaw ko lang makisiksik sa madaming tao kaya lower distance na lang

    i was entertaining the thought of tagging along with the 21k runners. since mag-start sila sa BGC, it’ll be easy to spot them. same with the 21k group last year

    but that might pose logistical problems with rio’s team not unless magdadala tayo ng sarili nating hydration. anyway, lets just run na lang sa 3k =)

  10. @barefootdaves yeah, natrauma ko sa run last year eh… note to PR runners, definitely not the race to set PR ;)

    pero nung nakita ko bwfore and after pictures pati ang nakalayout na plans..gusto ko maging part neto! 1team tayo lahat!

  11. sabi ko din after last year na di ako sasali dito pero after ko makita kung san napunta ang 350 php ko, aba, willing to give it a shot!
    for once, let’s not think about PRs, but the cause….pede itong another meet and greet amidst the sea of people :)

  12. ok lang sa akin kahit medyo sablay last year dahil sa mga “FaceBook runners”. di na kasi ako umasa na matindi talaga ang mangyayaring takbuhan. ok na rin sa akin kasi nakasabay ko si PacMan at si Dyan Castillejo mula Makati.
    Ngayong taon, di pa rin ako aasa na magiging sobrang ayos ang takbuhan lalo na 100,000+ ang tatakbo.Tulong na lang at enjoy sa pagjo-jogging,at Alay Lakad bago dumating ulit sa MOA Globe. pero nag-iisip akong patulan yung 3k o 5k basta nasa unang hilera ako ng tatakbo.

  13. //count me in..! i will join all November races (since it’s my birthday month)..ahahah..! and besides, early this year, we had the opportunity to conduct volunteer activities at Estero de Paco — clean up, landscaping and community interaction..i had the first hand experience in cleaning at least a part of the area…had an interaction with the River Warriors (they are the ones who do the maintenance of the area)..joining this event will help the further the rehabilitation..see you there..!

  14. to all pf runners eh naisip ko lang po baka pwde po lahat tayo after o before nang run eh suot natin ang ating mga pf shirt (kahit wala pa ako hehe pero nagorder na online )
    o better siguro kung during run hehehehe para magkaroon nang malawakang samasama ang mga pf runners naisip ko lang na parang ang astig nun hehehe

  15. ok lang na lakaran kung madami naman.. benifits naman ng River eh.. enjoy the view, walking at love birds.. alam na… wahhhhhh….

  16. sana ma-ayus yung pag-ma marshall,kasi naka-raan ang gulo,lalo na yung mga studyante,nagu-gulo yung mga 21-10k,baka mamaya ma-apakan ka o kaya ikaw ang ma-apakan,mag-ka injury ka pa,tsaka aksidente,sana magawan ng paraan ng mga marshall kung pa pano ang ga gawing route,

  17. tama si thunder foot,magulo yung naka-raan yung mga naka-raan,di ma-ayos ma-bu bwiset ka sa mga studyante,magu-gulo para bang nasa fiesta,wlang disiplina yung mga studyante,nag-pa regiter lang ata para mag-laro o mag-kulitan,

  18. Ask lang po sa mga nkatakbo na d2, pati ba 10k alay lakad lang ginawa nila ? masikip din ba takbo sa 10k ? hehe .. gusto ko sana takbuhan 2 ee ..

  19. niahaha .. kawawa naman mga runners .. bawi na lang tayo sa ibang run .. at this time, run for fund kahit wala na yung fun .. hehe .. may fun pa naman sa pagtulong hehe ..

  20. we joined last year pero disappointing na umalis agad yong logistics na magdadala sana ng baggage namin papuntang MOA. That was my first run na may bag at mukang Ninja Turtle. I ran 10K. ok pa sa Ayala pero pagdating na sa Roxas Blvd. puro walk na lang. Walang ibang ginawa ang mga students kundi magharutan at magpa-picture lang.

    Anyway, I’ll still join this event. Ok lang maglakad, makakatulong naman. Sana lang maglagay ng basurahan kasi last year nagkalat ang mga plastic cups.

  21. @ Joeben M. : sobrang gulo last year!!! may nakita pa akong mga members ng el shaddai karga mga anak nila. kaka-awa! muntik pa magka riot sa bigayan ng finisher’s band (whatever you call yung give away nila) – paano ‘di magkakagulo, isa lang booth for all the 116,000+ “runners” tapos dalawa pa finish line :P saan ka hihinto? may mga nadukutan (alay lakad kasi)…yung tinakbo kong 5k e isa lang hydration booth lang ata nadaanan ko tapos 4 lang yung tao sa hydration booth (kaya ba nila yun?) tapos pa, after ng run, balik kami sa CCP kasi dun kami nakapark, symepre, wala masakyan kaya agawan sa taxi wala kami choice kundi maglakad pabalik…kaya, sa mga sasali, be ready na lang ‘ika nga, CAVEAT EMPTOR – let the buyer (runner) beware! good luck sa mga sasali dito…kung pupunta man ako dito, volunteer marshal na lang o kaya bandit runner :P

  22. @ Joeben M.: kung balak mo tumakbo dito e, baka ‘di ka makakatakbo (kung same set up as last year) and don’t expect na may race result (kung walang rfid tag). dala ka sarili mo hydration. kung meron man i-provide, e sigurado, pipila ka para maka inom

  23. …LAST YEAR’S RUN WAS CHAOTIC… I AM STILL GIVING THIS RUN ANOTHER SHOT SINCE THE MONEY WAS PUT TO GOOD USE…

    REQUESTING THE ORGANIZERS TO ALLOW ALL THOSE WHO HAVE FASTER AVERAGE PACES TO START FIRST…

    WALKERS WILL GO LAST…!!!

    HOW CAN THE RUNNERS FINISH IF THEY KEEP AVOIDING THE WALKERS? I WAS RUNNING SIDE TO SIDE AND BUMPING THE SLOW ONES LAST YEAR… MAYBE ALLOT 3 LANES FOR WALKERS AND 2 LANES FOR RUNNERS!!!

    PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THIS!!!
    LET’S IMPROVE THE COURSE VERSUS LAST YEAR!!

  24. AND THE FINISH LINE???? I WAS NOT ABLE TO CROSS IT BECAUSE OF THOSE INCONSIDERATE WALKERS WHO CHOSE TO BLOCK THE PATH LEADING TO THE FINISH LINE…

    SO HOW DID THE ORGANIZERS COME UP WITH THE OFFICIAL FINISH TIME?? BEATS ME…

  25. EXPECT SHORTAGE OF WATER DUE TO INEFFICIENT HYDRATION STATIONS… I HAD TO STOP BY A CONVENIENCE STORE TO BUY MY OWN SPORT DRINK…

    THEY WANT ANOTHER WORLD RECORD??? THEY SHOULD MAKE SURE THE HAVE ENOUGH WATER TO HYDRATE 150k PARTICIPANTS!!!!!!!

  26. hindi ko nakita yung last year run pro base sa mga nababasa kong comment ay mukhang tragedy ang dating hehehe…

    suggestion ko na lang, sana i-address ng organizers na if the runner/participant can’t run they should stay on the right side para yung left side ay free sa mga tumatakbo at kapag nakabawi na ng lakas yung mga naglalakad saka sila kumaliwa para tumakbo at kapag pagod na ulet kanan ulet sila..

  27. anu kaya ma-ayus na kaya,naka-raan ang gulo,di ka maka-ka takbo ng ma-ayos,maganda siguro bata na lang patakbuhin mo,para naman ma practice ang anak mo,kung runners ka talaga,malabo kang maka-takbo ng matino

  28. 10.10.10 When I married my best friend. But before that, we ran first the Run for Ilog Pasig together with our guests. After the race, we went to Eco Park for the wedding ceremony and then we planted trees just right after the wedding. Maganda rin yung race. Para din sa environment. Sana nga lang ma-improve din ng organizers yung patakbo nila ngayon. Good luck:)

  29. pag-dito ka tumakbo,kailangan naka-tingin ka sa tatakbuhan mo,rumble ang mang-yayari,katulad nung last year,maganda ang charity,ang problema yung aksidente na mang-yayari sayo,lalo na kung runners ka talagang di safe takbuhan ang mga ganitong event,mahirap ma-injury,advice ko lang mga 3k ka lang dito,

  30. isa aco sa mga gustong 2makbo dito , kso hindi cu alam cung pde ang edad kung 15 years old !
    sna aman pde acu sumali kc matagal cu ng ustong tumakbo dto !

    pra po sa mga nagsasabing masasayang lang effort dito sa runfortheilogpasigriver hindi po msasyang ang oras o panahon ng mga mga pilipino dito kung bukal aman sa loob nila ang tumulong sa gnitong klagayan ng lugar ng mga pilpino sa mga maruruming lansangan o lugar mas mpapabuti pa nga ito dhil isa cla sa mga dahilan pra gumanda at maiwsab\n ng ibang tao ang magkaroon ng sakit . :)

  31. Kung tumutakbo ka sa marathons (21K or 42K) yan ay halos para sa iyo on your own personal achievement. Pero kung mga Fun Runs (10K or shorter distance) kadalasan iniisip mo rin na kung para saan ba yung tatakbuhan o ano ang ang CAUSE.

    Itong Pasig Run ay para sa pagpapabuhay muli ng Pasig River kaya naman it’s a very good CAUSE.

    Isa pang target nito ay yung Guiness Record. Ibig sabihin isang katutak ang tao na sasali dito kaya expect na masikip at halos di ka makatakbo ng maayos. Ganoon talaga yon. Kung hindi natin isama yung mga estudyante ay hindi aabot doon sa target 150,000 na attendance.

    Kaya kami sasali pa rin dito. Go Pasig Run!

  32. CHARITY TALAGA ITO? WALANG SINGLET?
    sabagay mag sisinglet pa ba eh kung almost 90%student malamang malugi pa ang organizer, count me in 3k pacing hehehe ^^
    Pede pa ba ako sa student kahit PGI-Medicine Intern ako ^^

  33. //@Ziek: intern — technically, you’re still a student, imo…

    @jajaboy: don’t fill out the bib# portion when you pre-register. you will fill out that portion once you have your racekit.

  34. post ko na dito para hindi na kayo mahirapan.. :)

    FAQ

    1. Do you have on-site registration?

    No, there will be no on-site registrations. Every participant must have pre-registered.

    2. This is another attempt to break the world record. How do you intend to count everyone?

    Each participant will have an RFID chip attached to the race bib. This chip will be read when the participant crosses the starting line and also when the participant crosses the finish line. As per Guinness’ World Records requirements, a participant must be counted at the start line AND at the finish line, so it is very important that a participant not miss crossing the starting line.

    3. Where is the proper placement of the bib to ensure that it will be read?

    The best and proper placement of the bib is pinned on the front of shirt or singlet at the chest area or along the waist when using a race belt.

    4. What do I do aside from showing up at the start area once I get my race packet?

    Your race bib number corresponds to an RFID chip that will be used to identify you. To officially activate your race bib number, you are advised to log on to the official website using your race bib number and the corresponding security number which is found on the bib as well. Fill out the online form with your details and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the activation process. The process should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.

    6. Are there portalets along the course?

    Yes, portalets will be provided at the start areas, along the course, the finish area and at the activity area.

    7. Are there water stations along the course? How many? How far in between?

    Yes, there will be water stations spread out along the course for every kilometer. However, to make this a truly environmental-conscious event, participants are encouraged to bring their own water containers and to just refill at the designated water stations.

    8. Aside from water, do you have energy drinks being offered at the water stations?

    Only water will be provided at the water stations.

    9. Where can we park our vehicles?

    Designated parking areas are available. Please refer to the location maps provided in the race packet for more details. However, to lessen the volume of vehicles on the event day, everyone is encouraged to leave their personal vehicles at home and to commute or arrange a carpool in going to the event venue.

    10. Will there be shuttle services to the starting line & where is/are the pick-up point/s?

    There will be limited shuttle service to ply certain routes. Please refer to the location maps provided in the race packet for details of the pick up points. However, considering the volume of people expected during the event, everyone is advised to have alternate plans in getting around.

    11. Will there be shuttle services from MOA back to CCP, P. Gil or EDSA MRT stations?

    There will also be limited shuttle services from the finish area going back to the start areas to assist those who brought private vehicles and parked there. However, in anticipation of the possible volume of people who might be availing of the service, everyone is advised to still have alternate plans in getting there.

    12. Are there free bus rides or MRT rides for participants just like last year?

    As of this printing, arrangements for this have not yet been finalized. Please visit the official website for updates on this.

    13. Is there a medal, token or certificate for the finishers?

    There will be a token and certificate for all the participants. There will be no medals.

    14. Are there cash prizes for the winners?

    This is going to be a pure advocacy fun run. There will be no winners. As such, no cash prizes.

    15. What are clusters? How will I know my cluster assignment?

    Clusters are a means to provide order at the starting areas. Cluster assignments and related details will be published at the official website. Please visit the site for updates on this.

    16. If I am not a member of any group, can I just run with any cluster that I want?

    Clusters are a means to provide order at the starting areas. Your race number will have a corresponding pre-designated cluster assignment. Cluster assignments and related details will be published at the official website. Please visit the site for updates on this.

    17. If I got there but wasn’t able to reach the starting line on time, can I just enter the course at any point and still be considered a finisher?

    Everyone is encouraged to come on time. Should you arrive late, you are still advised to go thru the starting line to be officially counted and considered a finisher.

    18. Are there directional signs and marshals along the course?

    There will be ample directional signs and marshals along the course.

    19. Are there ambulances and medics during the event?

    There will be ample ambulances and medics during the event.

    20. Are pets allowed in the race?

    Pets are not allowed in the race.

  35. may rfid pala…parang gusto ko na sumali…banggain lahat ng mga pa-cute at walang disiplina…lalong-lalo na mga estudyante na sumasali para ma-exempt lang sa p.e. at para magpa-cute :)

  36. nagreg na ako online ang sabi wait lang daw nang email for further detail pero nakapag pa prereg na ako…..hmmm when kaya yung racekit or panu kaya kukunin

  37. I join in this last year. ang hirap tumakbo kasi na first time mo. ang dami mong iiwasan at kung may mabangga ka baka mapaaway ka pa. kaya mukhang malabo na may mga walkers at runners lane. kasi ang objective ng run is for fund raising di ba.

  38. Is there a baggage deposit for our bags?

    No, there will be no baggage deposit. Everyone is encouraged to bring a small unobtrusive belt bag, or the like, to store their personal belongings.

    Wow, parang maganda ang amoy nito pagkatapos ng event.

  41. to all,
    eto po yung natangap ko email from organizer,hmmmm so wala po singlet..dahil ba sa dami nang sasali o wala lang talaga?
    so sa sa aking palagay basta punta lang dun dala siguro i.d ibigay ang pangalan?di naman din kasi nakagalagay sa email.
    yun lang po share ko lang po yung natangap ko

  42. @jajaboy

    as i know, this is to defer the cost kaya wala na singlet. also, it is a fact na madami ang sasali and that would be a logistical nightmare just to monitor the huge inventory

  43. ito naman ang sabi sa akin sa twitter..

    singlet is sold separately, for example if ur running in a 5K category.. race kits is P300 and singlet is P300 so ang cash out mo ay P600.. hindi ko lang alam kung pano yung sa student.. kasi nung may nag inquire about that e nagtanong ako so ayun clear naman yung sinabi sa akin na singlet is sold separately..

    tapos kapag nakapurchase kana ng racekit mo.. you have to activate your bib number dun sa website nila.. pero bago nga yun dapat nakapagpa-pre registered kana..

  44. hmmm sold separately hehehe mukhang maganda naman ata,,kasi may option ka to run lang with bib for the sake of helping lang and if you have extra you can purchase the singlet ayus na strategy pwedeng shirt lang o cap kasi may cap din eh…sana nga lang talaga maging safe,maayus at mas maganda pa ang ilog pasig..idamay na din sana yung mga nasalanta nang bagyo. :)

  45. I joined the 10K last year and medyo magulo nga. In the area where all race distances merged, hindi ka na makatabo. The walkers were blocking the entire road. Their vehicle traffic control also needed improvement as there were numerous areas na nagpumilit mag cross ang mga vehicles. I almost got run over by a vehicle kasi hindi na ma-control ng traffic marshalls yung mga vehicles na gusto dumaan.

    Muntik na rin magka-riot sa claiming ng finishers bracelet sa dami ng tao. The claiming booth was right beside the entrance to the enclosed area kaya ang nag merge yung mga nakapila at yung pumapasok na runners. Nagtutulakan kaya halos mapisa ka na habang pumipila.
