onsite claiming – you may proceed to F. Ortigas Road (formerly Emerald Ave) Ortigas Center in Pasig in front of Coffee Bean
for some weird reason, i cant post ung address kung saan pwede i-claim ung race kits today. texted the site owner already about this
FINISHLINE.PH, ang daming nyong ginalit na runners today, nangako kayo na ide-deliver ang race kits sa bahay namin, and kasama ito sa binayaran namin na fee, then suddenly ipapa-claim nyo nalang sa event location. You have to re-think if you still want to remain in the business of organizing running events kasi ang dami nyong na-disappoint today.
Medyo safe din si finishline from any suit.
Part of the fine print in the registration form is our signed waiver that says:
“this waiver includes all claims against negligence, inaction from organizer”
“I irrevocably and unconditionally release and forever discharge the race organizer from all liabilities, damages or costi may have against the organizer”
Just recved my race kit today exactly 12 noon. Thanks God!! They are still delivering race kits until now. Im from manila area (intramuros).
Guys kagagaling ko lang sa emerald ave. Strata 100 building trying to look for my racekit. I didnt recve any txt to go there for my race kit. Its just my initiative. Wala dun race kit ko kasi pg uwi ko ngayun, sya nman dating ng courier sa office nmin. Pagod lang ako. Anyway my case might be an example to everyone still waiting for their race kits.
So….pwede na kunin ngayon ang kit? Ano ba talaga…pwede nko sumugod sa ortigas ngyn…
@runningman…so wala kang nkuha sa booth sa ortigas?
finishline di kayo nag-re reply sa text kung san ku kunin yung race kit.pag-di mo na-ayos tong problema namin sa patakbo mo.ipa-media ka namin.o kay tulfo,
Im not sure pero pg wla kayong notice na pupunta doon malamang wala ung kit nyo dun. Yumg iba kasi may natangap na notice through txt to claim their undelivered race kits dun. Pumunta parin ako kahit wala akong notice. Yun pla on the way plang courier ng ng deliver sa office nmin kanina.
my fellow runners,kung sino man naka-kilala dyan sa organizer na yan.paki-post kung sinong tao dapat nating hanapin.tulungan na lang
hay anu b tlaga finishline, i thought na pull out n mga racekit s courier nyo according to mr. vince, ta
pos meron p pa lang nagdedeliver. d ko tuloy alam anu b tama antayin o pupuntahan, finisline ayusin nyo naman…
If ever I came across a photographer during the run I’m going to do a two thumbs down pose as a sign of dismay, and also not going to wear the event singlet why? because it has the name FINISHLINE printed on it. are you with me guys?
gago talaga tong finishline.walang up date.tapos pumunta ako dun walang booth para sa pag-claim ng racekit.tinarantado tayo ng finishline.
Salamat po Finishline. Nareceive ko racekit kahapon. Mabuhay kayo at sana’y marami pa kayong magagandang races na gawin.
I am suggesting na gawin niyo namang venue ang Masinag to Antipolo Church Route. Ito ang naiisip kong kauna-unahang urban uphill run sa Pilipinas.
@pyxcel: wala ako napala dun. Sabi nila tomorrow nalang daw ung kit. Tumulong na kami sa paghahanap ng kit with our fellow runners. Ung iba meron yumg iba wala kya sabi bukas nalng daw. Kunti plang tao kanina pero magulo na. Kawawa yung mga bata na silang nagaasikaso at tumatanggap ng reklamo. Unorganized talaga. Wla man lang list ng returned undeliverd racekits. Hahanapin mo pa at kalkalin kung andun ba ang race kit mo o nsa courier pa. Sabi nila kanina sa site/booth, nirecall daw lahat ng undelivered kits. Di rin nila masagot kung stop nba ang delivery. Un mga wala talaga bukas nalng daw before the race. Dahil kakatanggap ko lang nung akin galing courier i assumed ongoing prin ung delivery. Better call yung courier office and ask kung may pangalan and waybill number kayo sa kanila. Nakapost number nila sa erlier post dito.
ang sabi eh ni-recall na nila from couriers. and now, im seeing race kits still being delivered. im confused. really confused
at most what i meant in my previous email was civil case lang
To all our fellow runners, kung makuha na natin ang ating bib at singlet, let us momentarily forget this sorry incident, let us run tomorrow. iblock natin ang negativity, kasi mas lalo tayong matatalo, kunin natin ang medal natin sa finish line. After that, lets rally for corrective steps so that incidents like this will not be repeated, for the sake of the running community.
Bawi na lang sana ang Finishiline sa ginawa nilang inconvenience. Give all finishers something tutal nakatipid naman kayo sa courier cost dahil pinapunta niyo pa kami sa ortigas to claim our kits.
Nadeliver na sakin. swerte ko lang siguro.
nagsorry naman yung delivery guy sakin. hehe
dumating na din sa akin yun race kit ko sa wakas :)
Excuse me po..anong area po kau…ung mga nakareciv na ng kit? Baka nagiisa si kuya taga deliver…..nagmotor po ba sya o van? hehehhe
Ako na rin sasagot sa tanong ko…….makati or pasay area na mejo malapit sa bangkal….baka dadaan si kuya…kakakuha ko lang ng akin…nakamotor sya kaya madali lumusot sa trapik
Panu gmitin ung chip?
Still no delivery of my racekit, called up the courier and finishline but still no answers…very disappointed with the turnout of events. Makuha man natin yung racekits natin tomorrow sira na rin preparation natin for the run. Add this to the hot weather we have and it really makes one’s blood boil :(
tanong ko lang kung early registrant ka ba tama ba yung size ng singlet mo?
yung chip ang ginawa ko inattach ko lang sa sapatos ko
Nakuha ko na po kanina iyung race kits sa lugar na tinext nila sa akin kanina, takbo na lang ako bukas para matapos na sayang din iyung medal basta sa mga susunod na event na iorganize ng Finishline di ko na sasalihan nadala na ako sa kanila.
I think nagkamali ang FINISHLINE to schedule the delivery only a week before the race. Wala man lang margin. Sa dami ng sumali nagbigay lang ng 1 week delivery? Sisihin ba ang courier? May fault siguro ang courier din but as organizer dapat naisip ng FINISHLINE ang volume ng taong sumali. Di naman first time ng FINISHLINE mag-organize ng run di ba? Isa pa, wala man lang text to inform us what to do – di na ito courier problem. FINISHLINE ang may problema. Imagine, di kami umalis ng bahay para bantayan ang delivery tapos wala naman at wala ding text.
just got mine guys!!!grabe! according to manong the delivery man thursday lang pala binigay ni finishline sa kanila yung racekit!!! ang galing diba?????stressful!!!!
Hay SALAMAT, what a day. Buti may shuttle na dadaan mismo sa rob galleria.. nandun na ako ng 10:45am. Buti nakuha ko kagad ung 21k kit ko.. with GU energy gel, 10-vitamins, singlet, bib no. R, 100php.
Wala pala rebate na 100php yung mga regular na runners?..hmm. bkt ganun?. kapagod dahil naiwan ko yung timing chip sa office..hehehe..
ill just get my racekit tomorrow on the race day
thanks finishline.just received my kit.wait lang muna ung mga di pa nakakatanggap darating din yan.God bless runners
In just 2 days, naungusan na ng C5 ang RU2 sa “Popular Events”. Buti nalang di ako dito sumali… stressful!
If it weren’t for this comments section, I wouldn’t have a clue what happened to my race kit … and where to pick it up. I didn’t even get a heads up from Finishline whatsoever. Bakit naman ganon?
To think, this is the most expensive run I’ve ever joined.
kakadating lng ng racekit namin. buti na lng :))
pero bat walang energy gel? :(
pra san ung letter “L” na nka lagay sa bib number?
saan po pala ang designated parking area for this race? thank you…
alas siyete na at wala pa rin ang race kit ko. hindi na ako umaasang makukuha ko ito today. isang himala na kapag biglang dumating ito. mabuti na lang at nakuha na ung race kits ng mga kasama ko
kanina pa ako tumatawag sa kanila pero hindi nila sinasagot. ganun ata talaga. mabilis ang reply during registration phase. kapag hinahanap mo na ang nararapat sa iyo eh hindi na sila sasagot
ayaw ko na ma-stress. sana eh makatulog ako ng maayos nito mamaya para maganda naman ang gising ko
Di ko napansin if kasama sa kit… pero ano oras gunstart tomorrow ng 15k?
Btw sa metrowalk ang nearest parking sa start and finish line.
Saturday night. The race is in a few hours and still no Race Kit!!!!
What is going on?
@barefootdaves: some race kits were pulled out from the courier. like me, i was instructed to get the kit at ortigas this AM. epic fail ang organizers. no one is answering our queries.
Now you have earned the distinction of being the worst race organizer in the country. As your company name suggests, its the end of the line for your organized races. Rest assured we won’t be joining any and all races you organized.
It’s sad to see that there are still unfortunate registrants who’ve yet to receive their kits. Mali talaga ito Finishline.
I hope the crowd tomorrow will not be that affected with this negative turn of events. And I expect they will at least take the opportunity to address this, either tomorrow or after the race.
Hope you all have a good run tomorrow, despite the hassle with the race kits. Rest na, guys. Bawal tayo ma stress :)) Have fun, and run safely :)
Nagpunta ako kanina along emerald st. and andun mga organizers, but still didn’t get my race kit, bukas na lang daw. epic fail… finishline mas nakakastress ka pa sa trabaho!!!!! F**K
to runners who will bring their car tom, kindly note that there is one parking space which I just noticed earlier with only Php 30.00 fixed rate – this is the vacant lot occupied by former Benguet Mining Corp at Julia Vargas cor San Miguel Ave (this is right beside St Francis when your along Julia vargas). The other parking spaces around Emerald/F. Ortigas are more expensive (minimum Php 40.00 for first 3 hours).
paki-separate lang po yung 21k para sa pag-kuha namin bukas ng race bib,baka mamaya magulo ang pila,tapos ma late kami sa gunstart.yun na lang po paki-usap namin
wag na tayo magalit mga guys.. kahit ako pinapapunta para i pick up ung singlet tapos on the way nako.. nag text asawa ko na nasa bahay na raw ung delivery.. di ba hussle.. pero lets forget this and have a happy run… pero suggestion lng finishline sana next time wag nyo nlang pa deliver gawin nyo nalang na pi pickupin ung mga singelt and bib sa registration area para alam namin mga RUNNER atlist alam namin diba.. thanks
If there will be a formal complaint printed after the race, i will sefinitely sign as support.. Can some legal entity do this???
FYI, i will be running without a number because My name was suddenly ommitted from data base… They’ll
All gonna have my middle finger saluting Finishline…
C-5 half marathon..siguro ang ibig sabihin ng half e half na lang ang tatakbo compared to the original number of runners who registered dahil sa inis sa palpak na delivery ng race kit. Sayang sana doon na lang ako sumali sa “Takbo Laban sa Sunog” para kahit di ko magamit e at least may pupuntahan binayad ko kasi for a cause yong takbo. Di gaya nitong sa c-5 half marathon sa bulsa lang ng FINISHLINE mapupunta.
i texted back and asked what to do next. seems i was talking to a wall. no response
“Bawal tayo ma stress”
i cant help it already. too stressed that i couldn’t fall asleep
buti na lang at hindi ako nag-effort na pumunta today. baka naubos lang ang buhok ko sa kanila
“i will be running without a number because My name was suddenly ommitted from data base”
sorry to hear this
Sad ako barefoot… They have my middle thumb already…
Ooopsss… Middle finger rather..
@pissed – yep tama nmn size ng singlet ko…. I aattach llng b s shoes yun…..hehe..salamat.
Bumawi nga ang finishline. I think all finishers got a medal. Still would have been better if there were no hassle.
Wow, setting aside the issues on racekit delivery, the 21k run is good If not the better ones compared to say natgeo where fee is about the same.
1. Good spacing on hydration stations with plenty of bananas even after the finishline.
2. Challenging and fresh route
3. Well manned
4. Well organized finishers kit distribution.
1. Disposable cup shortage at the 17th km hydration station
2. Route was changed with no prior advisory until before gutime
3. Gun start started at around 4:45 instead of 4:30
Will i still register in the next finishline organized event? Hell yeah :)
Epic… Super epic… Di man lang umabot sa Libis kaya gnwang 2 laps.. Super messy…. Akala ko sa courier lang nagkaproblema, hndi pala… Dami ring sponsor, pero walang finisher’s kit, illogical… Grabe… Sabihan nyo kme sa next run nyo FINISHLINE, para alam namin ung di namin sasalihan…
Also, wala rin bang kayang gawin ang PF??? They are already ruining the Running Community, to the fact na may booth sila dun, means sponsor sila… Wala na nag say ang Finishline, pati moderator dito wala din…
I did the run this morning. Well there is a good side and the bad side to this race. First the Good. I did a new PB to my 21k here as compared to AXN last. and was 6 min faster. And Yup the medal looks great but then again this both are to my merit. The Bad, Organizers are so terrible that they had to change the route at literally the last min into 2 loops. Maybe to save on police fees. And the race countdown had to be late so late that it was 20min gun start late. Even the announcer did not know when it would start. And Gatorade was served but in powdered form para siguro makatipid. Overall it was an organized flop. not to mention the race kits had to be picked up the day before the race. Maybe para makatipid uli. And I thought the P1,100 was inclusive of delivery? Wow Mr Vince with the race route change and the no delivery plus the tipid powdered Gatorade your disorganized races and making money is surely consistent.
Walang water station sa mga pinaka crucial na part ng race tulad ng mga uphill! I think they are trying to kill the runners para mabawasan ang mga negative feedbacks. at yung ibang water station walang baso! ano ba yan finishline mahiya naman kayo, ang mahal mahal ng binayad namin para dito! walang medics, meron man pero nasa finish line na, ano un gagapang pa ung mga nadidisgrasya? at wag nyo sabihing walang nadisgrasya dahil madami kaming nakita, at one point me and my partner had to stop just to help someone whose suffering from cramps, ang nangyari the runners are looking out for each other nalang kasi nageexist lang kayo sa start at finish line. never again finishline! kahit gano pa kaganda ang mga ioffer nyo na medals NEVER AGAIN!
going back to the issue of the race kits… the delivery guy told me that finishline only started issuing the race kits to them wednesday which is already off to their promised delivery day to the runners. what happened? if you promised delivery will start on may 20, the kits should have been turned over to the courier a week before
It was a good race, it was challenging because of the inclines but there were some points that are a bit disappointing:
1. Sudden change in route, the map posted was suppose to reach the middle of the Katipunan flyover but it was change to doing 2 rounds along C-5.
2. Water stations were far from each other and some were unmanned as well.
3. There weren’t any medics near the water stations or on the route itself.
Parang sayang lang, people paid a lot of money for this race then ang dami pang kulang… :( Oh well, I guess ganun talaga pag hindi maayos pag organize.. :(
I’m not sure what incidents happened during the AXN run last year but I think this is worse.. :(
I noticed that there weren’t many participants for the 10k and 15k almost all were 21k. Not unless they didn’t receive their race kits?
think of a nice offer next year finishline. like more freebies, sponsors, and cheap na registration fee. Mag Run United na lang kami next time pag ganyan pa.
In fairness to the race organizers, the race was well-manned, there were plenty of water and bananas, the traffic situation was handled well, and the route was a winner. It was the most difficult and tiring 21k I’ve run. I loved the finisher’s shirt and the medal. These two, plus the challenging route, were what first attracted me to join, and I wasn’t disappointed.sure, there were problems, but they were outweighed by the positives, imho. Thanks a lot, Finishline! :-)
may napansin ba kayong AMBULANCE along the race route?
ako wala e :))
actually may legal consequences yung organizer for not placing adequate medical facilities on a marathon not unless may waiver sila sa registration form. On the lighter side, now that I have the fancy looking C5 medal on second glance parang medyo baduy ang dating. Parang star knife na laruan ng anak ko hehehe..
para sa kin ok na tong run na to, wla nmang perpektong organizer eh, kahit un well organized run may maririnig ka pa din negative observations. ang importante nakikita natin that they learn from their previous mistakes and may improvement ung succ events, in this case nagka problem last year s distribution ng medal & finisher’s shirt pero it seems ok nman ung kanina. if on their next race event e ganito p din ang prob then i wont join their future runs, for now looking forward ako sa nxt event nila.
ang nkakainis e ung gaya ng organizer ng Nat Geo, failure lahat wlang improvements
In fairness naman sa Organizer.. bumawi sa Race Day. wag natin sila nasyado i-down. I’m sure di nila ginusto mga nangyari.. isa rin ako sa mga nainis at naasar nung Saturday Morning at matagal na naghintay pero di nakuha race kit kasi yung courier nila ang may kasalanan. Lawakan nalang natin ang ating pang-unawa. mahalaga nakatakbo tayo ng Safe. And kahit saang Run nangyayari naman delay ng gunstart. @MJ – comment #469 ako din nag enjoy ako!! :)
a good race indeed. . forget the issue about the racekit. finishline manage to give it on the race day naman.. thou i got 2 singlets.. didn’t know nadeliver pala ung racekit ko nung sat dito sa office.
finishline. il still run for you. bt next time learn to ur mistake ayt. . thanks for lots and lots of banana. thanks DOLE.. water and gatorade hydration is pretty good also. marshalls as well.. ang babait.. thanks finishline..
