  1. We are interested to register. When can we register na available na rin yung singlet para di pabalik balik kasi we are from Bulacan pa po.

  2. @Mel: Available na po yung singlets by September 14 so pwede na po kayong mag-register by that time to get the singlet

    @prex: September 23 po. Nasa website po namin yung design ng singlet. :)

    @dong: Meron po kaming glass medals and plaques as prizes. :)

  3. @prex: Pwede po however hindi na po sure kung available pa yung singlet.

    Though ok lang naman kayong mag-preregister online ( para makapag-reserve kami ng singlet for you.

  4. hindi ata naging clear sa akin from the ads and posters na may slight zombie motif pala itong run na ito. (oh well, at least more singlets were for sale after na-stain yung una kong na-purchase)
