  1. a very good cause. wasn’t expecting a singlet to be provided at all. better for the organizers to save on other expenses so they can give more to those who needs it the most. this is the season of giving. lets share our blessings to others =)

  2. registration sites are in the ff: rox, secondwind qc and ortigas and arc…on the route map, we will post it a few weeks before feb. 12. thank you for understanding.

  3. medal or no medal; with or without finisher shirt; we’ll definitely join this run. for the fallen soldiers and the innocent victims of an unnecessary war.

  4. gusto ko rin tumakbo dito. kahit wala medal. me singlet naman eh. gusto ko ule makapasok camp aguinaldo. and to run along side our very own soldiers.

  5. I would definitely want to join this kasi i’m not sure if I can make it to the “Run to support our troops” yung route ba e pareho ng Camp Run?

  6. hi!

    i registered already sa may second wind teacher’s village, and the guy there told me that there is no guarantee that a singlet will be provided.

    so will there really be no singlet? ok lang naman sa akin kung wala talaga para mas maraming pera ang madodonate. but if there is, will it be delivered to my house or i just have to go back to the store to claim mine? oh and when could i claim it?

    thank you =)

  7. @JP route will be different from camp run.
    @ LA-U, when did u register? singlets are already available at all reg sites and will be given to all registrants?

  8. Is there parking inside the camp? If there is, where is the entrance? I plan to register at rox. Hope singlets are available this week

  9. See you all in Camp Aguinaldo. I just hope that the route would include the Capinpin Ave which I personally named the “Heaven & Hell” (because going down is like heaven but once you go back, you’ll get the taste of hell for the long uphill), and the Daza Park road which I call the “Heartbreak Hill” because of a very steep climb if you negotiate the road going to Gate 3 all the way to barrio and AFPCES. For the first timers, you’ll not be pampered by the roads of Cp Aguinaldo, but it’s a different feeling running inside the camp.

  10. Tatakbo ako dito..one of the best venue for a fun run.. Mkkta nyo pa mga signs along the camp na joggers and bikers friendly tlga ang buong camp..

  11. Hi ,Singlets are available upon registration. :) also there will be a raffle after the race, a chance to win a Trip to Boracay for two. 3day 2nights :)

  12. cant wait to try my singlet! thanks to Secondwind Home Depot Ortigas branch for still accomodating me (arrived 7:50pm) when you guys were about to close. :-)

  13. Thanks secondwind home depot ortigas branch…i like my singlet… and like to help the orphans too… see ya all at the starting line!!

  14. Be ready with your beautiful smiles as KB Photography and Lestsky Runner Photography will be there to catch you in action.

  15. To my fellow runners…lets help spread the word about the beneficiaries of this fun run. if you witness the faces of the families of our soldiers who come home form the war in body bags it will break your heart and make you want to do something for them. Many times i have felt a helplessness watching this happen, but now I feel empowered to help and contribute in my own little way. Peace to you all runners, peace to our country, peace to the families of the victims of war and violence.

  16. mornin… ang alam q, may mga benefits/pension ung mga naiwang family nang KIA soldiers… ????

    “A run that aims to provide scholarship grants through i-hope, a trust fund that will support the educational needs of orphans of fallen soldiers killed in action in Mindanao and for future grantees of the AFP Educational Benefit System (AFPEBS)”…

    God bless n lng…

  17. sana maglagay rin kayo ng registration booth sa sm marikina… para malapit lang ang registration para sa mga taga marikina at malapit sa marikina na gustong sumali sa run nyo.. pero malapit na gusto ko sanang sumali kaya lang law budget na talaga…

  18. @rica agatha… you are correct that benefits were given to the family of the soldiers KIA. However, these are not enough that’s why there are a lot of foundations whose main task is to give educational benefits to the family.

    @isleeve_PH… I’ll see you on Sunday. Thanks for volunteering…

  19. @RollingTMark… may i know kung how much kaya(percent)ang mapupunta sa mga “orphans of fallen soldiers” and sa organizer?…

  20. @rica agatha… much as I wanted to tell you i don’t have the authority to divulge it. Ultimately, the runners like you will have the final choice to join a race or not should they believe or not believe the advocacy of a particular race.

  21. Thank you for joining the race. You may visit our fan page RUNdezvous Inc. for your pictures while race results are already out at runningmate.ph
