  1. @mark-runner_ph

    Sige, I’ll check them out. Hopefully I can get some tom, so I can test them out during practice run on sunday. Yung salt caps curious rin ako wala pa kasi ako nakikitang ganun. =)

  2. Wala pa ako race kit, nung Oct. 11 pa ako nagpareg online, napansin ko rin wala akong confirmation email pero sa chronotrack ko registered naman ako, P1050 ang binayaran ko, kasama na ba dun yung delivery fee?

  3. hi guys, newbie lang ako… ask ko lng anong ibig sabihin ng sub4 marathon, etc. etc.? yung mga term hindi ko maintindihan yung iba. salamat po sa sagot.

  4. @ buknoy,

    Ibig sabihin ng sub-4 ay ‘under 4 hours’ ang 42K run. So whenever you hear or read the ‘sub’ word ibig sabihin ‘under.’

    So ako for example ang goal ko ay sub-60 sa 10K, ibig sabihin nun ay under 1 hour or under 60 minutes sa 10K event.

    Also, ginagamit ko na ang ‘PIKERMI’ word instead na ‘half-marathon.’ Puwede ko sabihin 21K, but I can never say the HM word again. It isn’t half of an achievement after all. ;)

  5. @ Maritess,

    Hope you receive your kit soon. Call them up or message them in their FB page.

    Yes, kasama na dun ang delivery fee (P150), kasi I presume sumali ka sa PIKERMI/21K event (P900).

    See you at the starting/finish line! =)

  6. @angel.d.saint (comment 307)

    thank you very much sir! yun pala yun. anyway, katatapos ko lang sa adobo run last night 15k. 1:32 ko natapos. it was my first run ever sa mga running events and planning to run “pikermi” sa mga susunod na events. plano ko sana sumali dito 21k, pero 1 week lang recovery ko mapapa-sabak nanaman. pass muna ako dito. training na lang muna ulit para sa susunod na takbo.

    Goodluck sa lahat ng runners dito. Lalo na sa nag Full Marathon. o7

  7. Hi guys!! Ok!! Registered for 2slots 21k at Bonaventure bldg., across Greenhills Shopping Center. From the pile of race kits on the desk I’m guessing there’s still 10-12 slots available for 21k. Mark of Riovanna informed me about this and Melo is assisting reg at Bona bldg. If anybody still wants 21k, head out to Greenhills. Call 09055173231. Look for ms. Melo. I hope this helps! Safe running to all!:)

  8. yong mga gusto pa humabol for 21k race kits…available pa po sya sa bonaventure plaza in greenhills, san juan infront of greenhills shopping center….sa groundfloor po sya upon entering the lobby of the bldg., its open until tommorow as per the runrio crew.

  9. Tumawag ako sa Riovana office, open pa daw lahat ng category except sa 21k. :(

    @ Jo-Anne Mendoza – nagtxt ako sa binigay mong number wala naman pong nagrereply, gusto ko sana na kung pupunta ako dun eh sure na may madadatnan pa ko para d naman sayang pamasahe at pagod. Anyway thanks for the info.

  10. Hi to All!
    Open pa po registration in all categories sa Unilab Main Campos in Mandaluyong Wednesday to Friday 9am. You can go directly sa Unilab Gym. Few slots remaining!

  11. From 9am to 4pm po open ang Registration sa Unilab Gym in Mandaluyong. Last day of registration is on Thursday Oct 25. Wala daw po kasing pasok sa Friday.

  12. guys my tanong lang ako may nararamdaman ako sa tuhod ko nakirot. 42k pa nman tatakbuhn ko hndi ba ako maiinjury pag tinuloy ko ang run ko sa 28?

  13. @ Zyerasu,

    Mahirap yata sagutin yan. Syempre ang best na makakasagot sayo ay isang specialist…

    Depende din kasi. Ako may nararamdaman na sakit sa tuhod (hindi kirot) pag umpisa ng takbo. Habang tumatagal, ito’y nawawala. Ganun din sa inside ng left calf ko. The more I run, the lesser the pain. Pero after the run naman yun. Ibig sabihin, mas mabilis na siya gumaling after my run. Sumasakit na kasi siya after around the 12km mark. Nako-control ko lang ang pain (para di mag-cramps) sa maayos na midfoot strike.

    Kung matigas ang ulo mo (like me, hehe), gumamit ka na lang ng support/s para di masyado matagtag (strain) ang iyong mga muscles.

    Good luck and see you on the road!

  14. @zyerasu, ganyan din ako may tama sa left knee, 42k din ang tatakbuhin ko dito sa RUPM pero nagpa check up ako sa duktor ang sabi wag ko raw balewalain ang sinabi nya na makakasama sa kin ang long distance na tatakbuhin ko, so wala ako magawa binenta ko ung 42k race kit ko, dahil sa payo nya sinunod ko, kesa naman lalong lumala ang sakit na nararamdaman ko sa tuhod, mahirap na baka mahawa ako sa tigas ng ulo ni angel.d.saint hehehe!!! (peace po)

  15. @ Hardkulangot,

    Hehe. Mabuti at sinunod mo ang payo ni doc. Ako ni minsan hindi nagpatingin sa doktor mula ng bata pa ako pag ako ay napipilay, nasasaktan o nasusugatan – kumbaga, ‘suck it up’ or ‘take it like a man.’ So obviously hindi ako role model. ;p

    And now it’s taking its toll on me – weak left ankle, bad knees, misaligned hip (I think it’s a slipped disc) that hurts everytime (kuryente effect from right hip to lower leg), dislocated (sort of) shoulder (blame it on volleyball and badminton)… HUWAG TULARAN!

    Anyways, I find running to be MY cure, MY therapy… at least that’s what my body and mind tell me. I’m sure doctors would say otherwise. ;)

    21K is really a challenge for me. I’ve never completed a training run (of 19K or more) without suffering some cramps, stiffness, etc. in parts of my body. Dun sa RU3 (my 1st pikermi), my run wasn’t any different. Hopefully sa RUPM ma-overcome ko na ito.

    Good luck to us all!

  16. RUNUNITED PHILIPPINE MARATHON 1st Marathon in the rununited series is going to be EPIC! Those who registered for the full marathon will have the ultimate treat of a lifetime! Me oras pa register na! Coach Rio GET WELL SOON! We need you on Sunday! And to Runrio and Unilab we appreciate all the effort for the details of the event! Many thanks in advance! GUYS BE PREPARED TO BE BLOWN AWAY!

  17. Malapit na talaga to, goodluck sa lahat ng tatakbo! Sa mga ka Running Buddies ko antayin na lang namin kayo ni Sportyspice sa Finish Line, kaya nyo yan! :)

    Pero kung may biglaang d makakatakbo jan im willing to buy your 21k kit kahit bib lang, text me lang sa 09327632058. Salamat sa makakabasa. :)

  18. Guys since me blessing na sa RUPM to spread the word. Here’s the scoop on the RUPM this sunday!

    I attended the blogger’s press release yesterday (just a random invite) and there was a focus on the 1st ever RUN UNITED PHILIPPINE MARATHON making it one of the best Marathon event’s in the Philippines!

    Aside from the massive number of manpower, (private and government) to participate in the safety and assistance of 42k runners (and full blown medical assistance at the course)

    Us 42k Runners will have:

    * The last 200 meters, a small Philippine flag will be given for the marathoners crossing the finish!

    *Your own personal towel!

    *A cold glass of EVERVON HP (yum!)

    *The ginormous 42k medal!

    *Tents for your loved one at the finish so they can watch you and cheer for you!

    *Bells ringing as you pass the finish to announce your arrival!

    *and the highlight!….. dun-dun-duuuun!!!! THE RED CARPET FINISH!!!!!

    RUNRIO AND UNILAB are pulling all the stops here. So 1st time Marathoners and Tenure Marathoners are in for a super doper treat!

    THE SLOTS FOR THE MARATHON IS STILL OPEN! SAYANG GUYS! ONCE IN A LIFETIME EVENT ITO!

    P.S. Coach Rio answered a query about the cut-off time and the sweeper bus. Although the Sweeper leaves GBC at 8:30am it will be going at a slow pace towards the finish (cleaning the roads) YOU as a runner can choose to either board the bus or continue running to finish on your own risk as they open for traffic. Okay na yun so slow runners like me have a fighting chance!

    KITA-KITS!!!

  19. who’s willing to sell their race kit? for 21km, preferably small size… those of you who just cant run on sunday due to some circumstances.. willing to buy… just text me 09207354512

  20. first time ko sumali sa RU and my concern is my baggage. will joined 42k and i studied the route and it seems hindi na babalik sa BGC. paano ang mga gamit na iniwan sa baggage counter sa BGC. babalikan na lang after the race?

  21. @abaca

    FM bib# 803, hehe although I’m warning you I am as slow as a snail! =)

    You can’t miss me, look for the tall fat girl (who by the way looks like a guy!!!) *gwaf*

    More power to all runners! Hope you all enjoy Sunday what ever event your in! *wink-wink* ; )

  22. @notsooldrunner

    There will be a baggage bus waiting for you at BGC but make sure to read the guidlines on the RUPM page in RUNRIO on until what time the bus can take in your stuff (coz sometimes runners come late and have to carry their stuff running! coz they missed the baggage bus.)

    The baggage bus will meet you and other runners at MOA for pick-up of your stuff.

  23. @notsooldrunner: Baggage buses po ung nasa BGC. Dadalhin din nila sa MOA ung mga bags. You can claim your bag sa MOA na after the race. :)

  24. @ Tere – parang naengganyo ako sa sinabe mo ah (comment # 340). kaso 21k pa lang yung pinakamalayo kong natakbo eh (last RU3). And yung training na ginagawa ko now is for 21k lang talaga, kakayanin ko kaya talaga mag 42k? Mukhang wala na kasing magbebenta ng 21k d2. Ano ba ang pacing mo? Nakakatakot kasi baka ako na lang mag isa ang matira sa daan, hahahaha, kelangan mag isip hanggang bukas! :D

  25. @Daniel

    Kung nasa 21k lang ensayo mo it’s very difficult to give you an estimate, pero I think kaylangan talaga yung 32k mark na cross mo na. Because yang afro distance na yan also called ‘the wall’ is when your whole body turns into mush.. haha

    sobra yung fatigue, unimaginable. So hindi ko marerecomend sayo, coz gusto ko your first 42k maenjoy mo sya, para masaya =).

    Tapos like me aabot ako 6-7 hrs gotta be prepared for heat, the heat in itself can put my marathon finish and health at risk.

    You gotta be prepared for these things. I’m putting all my cards on the table, but I made sure I have a fighting chance…

    Although an exception to this, are rare people who are just (naturally ) psychical fit to run long distance with limited practice (I know someone like this, but kahit sya feels the burn of lack of practice.)

    Run safe guys!

  26. @daniel—- go for it! kaya mo yan. mind over matter lang yan. slow pace sa umpisa. target ka ng 2:30 to 3 hrs sa 1st 21km. then power walk ka muna para marelax katawan mo mga 2 km siguro or 20min. then jog ulit. walk. jog. pag pinulikat, tigil, stretching. then power walk, then run. pag nahit ang wall, lakad. relax. kain ng saging, hydration. baon ka ng chockolate like flat tops or choknut. then banat ulit. popondo ka sa 1st 21km. then the rest istallment na. believe in me, tapos mo yan. kahit puro power walk ka na ng km 22 ko 42km maabutan mo pa ung iba jn dahil burn out na sila. ayos ba! ang power walk eh mabilis na lakad ha. hindi pasyal luneta. hehehe… tirada ka na!

  27. @daniel—-wag mo intindihin ang heat. tandaan, 3am ang start, matagal na ung 7hrs na matapos mo 42km. so by that tym tapos ka na by 10am. by 9am pa lang start umiinit araw. so 1 oras ka lang mejo mag aadjust. and mind set ka rain or shine, baka naman umulan. ihanda mo na sapatos mo sa 7 hrs na karera. and dont forget to hydrate and mag load ng food or any nutrition. #1 ang nutrition at water. wag mo na intayin gutumin ka. eat lang while walking jogging para recharge ka. and lastly, wag ka na mag lagay ng kung ano anong burloloy sa katawan. less weight, the better. mag mp3 music ka na lang ok na un and chocolate sa bulsa. madaming water and aid station kaya no worries. ayos ba ulit? at huwag sumabay agad sa iba ng mabilis sa umpisa. mapapagod din yang mga yan. maabutan mo yan sa km22 pataas. ok!

  28. @ Let – Thanks for the info natawa ako sa tirada kana eh, hahaha. Kung sa utak lang naman eh alam ko kayang kaya ko yun, sa katawan nga lang talaga ang hindi sigurado. :) Anyways may isang gabi pa ko para pagisipan yan, bukas ako magdecide if sasali or hindi. If ever na magregister ako eh, I want to meet you guys… :)

    Esep Esep muna… Goodluck sa lahat ng nakaregister na!

  29. 4 days to go runner’s good luck to all na sana walang masamang mangyari sa inyo

    singet ko lang na try nyo na ba yung gawa ng therapy.ph yung drinking bottle nila kase yung mga drinking bottle nila daw is wala kang malalasahan na chemicals like plastic and metal taste at sure and pure daw ang water nyo pag yun ang gamit na drinking bottle yun lang naman..

  30. @Daniel

    Sige you sleep over it. Ikaw lang makakaestimate sa sarili mo katawan, no judgement naman saamin what ever your choice is. Para saakin, masmarami tayo mas masaya.

    In any case, if you can’t run anymore just walk. It pays to be safe, and anyone who bad mouths you for it shouldn’t speak at all. (hehe kasi run/ walk ako!)

    Looking forward to seeing you on the road!

  31. @daniel isapuso mo comment 355 ni let. ganyan ginawa namin sa milo FM. 2.15 yun 1st 21k tapos nagkatamaran na kaya power walk, kwentuhan, jog, tingin sa chicks, power walk, tingin ng mga stores sa BGC, jog at naunahan pa namin yung iba. as in pasok kami sa cut off na 6 hrs. hahahaha! pero brisk walk yun ha. pero ngayon 21k kami nag reg kasi pang yakimix na lang daw namin yun 400 after. bwahahaha! run safe sa mga mag FM!

  32. Sarap naman basahin ng mga post dito very informative para sa mga runners. Naiingit ako for those who can run 21k n 42k sana ako din makaya kona. I have to conquer my fear pa. May trauma pa ako ng stress fracture ko. But when i read your post na i-inspire ako. Sana one of this days i will be able to join you running in 21k… see you

  33. Something to love here at PF,among other stuff.

    Daming helpful inputs from new and experienced runners. Indeed useful and encouraging… Kudos and Thank you!

    My share, for those who haven’t prepared that much due to work loads conflict schedules like me.I know ma rami-rami tayong guilty dito. But ideally we should really put time on it since we value this sport.

    These are just some reiterations of useful advices from fellow runners.

    Since hindi ka masyado nakapag train for this run particularly for the 21k runners. at least do these things to avoid injuries and finish the run without passing out at the finish line.

    1. Carbo loading; the time to do it is 2 nights before the marathon. Do not overeat.
    Starches: bread, pasta, rice, cereal, bagel, oatmeal, pancake, mashed potatoes

    I personally consume pasta and mashed potato with minimal gravy.

    2.Hydrate a day before the run: One of the best ways to prevent muscle cramping is to make sure that you are properly hydrated. Hangang kaya mo iminun ng tubig do it, this is proven.

    I drink one bottle of isotonic fluid before going to bed.

    3. Stretching: for shin, heels, calf, legs. Alam nyo na how to do that. Do it on Friday and Saturday, since holiday naman on the 26. Also do some cadrio workouts.

    This is soooo….. important! Lalo na sa Shin.

    4. Energy gels: Gels get carbohydrates into the bloodstream almost instantaneously.

    I was hesitant about power gels before, until I tried one just for the heck of it. Surprisingly I felt the difference in terms of stamina.

    If you wear phiten or power balance and believe on what it can do for you. Then I suppose this is more worth of a try.

    I personally prefer GU gels, which is laging sold out. I also use “Accel” and “Boom”

    75 to 90 pesos each. 2 gels would be enough for a 21k. Consume it with water only. Medyo hindi maganda result pag sa sports drink mo sinabay.

    5.Cool down stretches: Important as warm ups.

    6. Recovery food: Studies have shown that muscles are most receptive to rebuilding glycogen (stored glucose) stores within the first 30 minutes after an strenuous activity. If you eat soon after your workout, you can minimize muscle stiffness and soreness.

    try drinking some chocolate milk. Chocolate milk provides plenty of protein, carbohydrates and B vitamins —- making it a great recovery drink. And cold chocolate milk tastes pretty refreshing after a run.

    Extra tips

    1. It’s time to wear a true running shorts/attire. Seriously… you will feel the difference ease. and you will perform better.

    2. And so with hydration systems; There are different hydration system for different usage. Trail, biking, pavements. Avoid bulky and lumbar type packs these are mostly use for trekking not running. Sobrang pahirap yan sa pag takbo.

    These tips wont make you a competitive runner on the race day, I somehow call it as “Quick Fix” which is the least that you can do if hindi ka masyadong nakapag training. This is to aid you from injuries and to at least finish the run na hindi ka halos mamatay.

    Long dedicated preparation is the best way…

    Also it would be a handy to bring antacids. Surprisingly hindi available ito sa mga ambulance and medics ng runrio… acid reflux may accur when running…

    Please do correct me if there are major concerns about my tips. :)

  34. @emersonic Naku! What could have happened? Maybe you can ask the marshal to let you guys run at 21k given hindi nyo error yun. Pero baka kaya din nyo takbohin yung 42k (hindi naman siguro nyo first time?) dapat iforward yan sa runrio.

  35. Hi guys,
    May binibenta po akong extra slot ng 42k, P1000 nalang po at large size ang singlet. Please text me kung sinong may gusto.Ito number ko 09231917548. Thanks:-)

  36. Hi guys,
    May binibenta po akong extra slot ng 42k, P1000 nalang po at large size ang singlet. Please text me kung sinong may gusto. Ito number ko 09231917548. Thanks:-)

  37. ganto kasimple, pag walang budget pambili ng energy bars, drinks, etc maging minimalist. kung ano available sa daan like water and saging, ok na yun. mas lalakas katawan nyo pag natural lang lahat intake nyo. nandyan na lahat sa aid water station yan. kung walang accesories like hydration bag or belt, be your self. less weight he better. basta tandaan, kayang tapusin basta wag lang tamarin! nxt tym, we go ultra marathon and ultra trail marathon! palakas lang, be yourself.

  38. Most runners who afford to join RU runs siguro naman could also afford these stuff. Since this can be consider as your hobby/passion kahit pa paano pwede mong pag kagastusan yung hilig mo…

    Yes, be yourself (in a way that you won’t try to be like someone else) just consider some good advice from experienced people. Explore and determine which things works for you, mix and much then make your own formula.

    Kahit anong sipag meron kapa, if you did not do some preparation mahihirapan kang tapusin ang isang bagay.

    Be yourself if you think your good-enough. :)

  39. PM na bukas. Time to do some conditioning today. Carbo loading & Hydration. Good luck to all runners especially the 42k.

    Question to experienced runners who completed 42km run:

    I have been running for more than 2 years for 21km. I make sure that I get to register at least 1-2 21km (s) every month. I have been consistent every week to at least maintaining an average mileage of 41km. 5km every Tue & Thu, 10km on Sat and 21km on Sun. Plus I do some strength training exercises for my core. (cross training in boxing)

    Is it hard to transition training to attain 42km? Should I just increase my mileage every week? My training principle maybe wrong cos whenever there is a 21km event I usually do 25km training 1 week before the event so my body will be ready on race day. I saw some of the comments & even my friend who did ultras that if you’ve passed the 32km mark that is where the true test begins. Yes I agree with the run-walk-run method, that’s how I started building my strength in my long runs.

    I would really appreciate your inputs. I would really like to complete a FM.

    Thank you

  40. @Frank Lampard

    you need to increase your weekly mileage. at some point i was doing 11-14kms on my weekday runs (11km on a tuesday then another 11 on thursday). then on a weekend, make sure that you run at least 4hrs or at least 32kms. you will need to train physically and mentally. good luck and hope to see you on your first full marathon :)

  41. Hehe eto na naman. Have to endure ang mga masasakit na parinig ng mga mabibilis na runners as they pass me. Last na to for RU. Just want to complete the medal set. Not joining this anymore next year to favor of cheaper runs with more pronounced support for charities and less rude runners.

    Good luck to us all!

  42. @ barefootdaves.

    I was doing 10-15km before on weekdays but with the heavy schedule I hope I can do it again. I just need to adjust my schedule, sleep early so I can wake up early for training. On weekends I can adjust to the 4 hours training plus cross train. Mentally it can be a challenge. Thanks for the advise. Looking forward to see you on the road.

  43. Ilang oras na lang mga pips!!!

    Good luck sa mga first timers! Tere/abaca ingat bukas. Dahil sa inyo na inspire ako kahit walang training, pero confident naman ako based sa huling takbo ko kahapon ng umaga.

    1210 bib ko bukas, as usual naka uniform ako. Weheheh red singlet na 2xu, black shorts at visor na milo… May dala ako soleus, para sa mga gustong magtanong.

    Para sa mga naka soleus dyan, ang gawin target 43 kms ha wag 42. Notorius ang soleus sa pag over estimate ng distance.

    Relax lang mga pips, bukas na ang pinaghandaan ng marami. Marami naman ginawa ang unilab para sa maging memorable ang finish.

    Btw hindi recommended mag mix ang saging at gu. Ensure lang na wala na yung saging sa tyan bago kumain ng gu. Humihina ang effectivity ng gu kung may ibang type ng carbs sa tyan. Saka max na sa akin ang 1/3 ng saging usually isang kagat lang. Kung masyadong marami, kakalog sa tyan at ayun either aasim sya, or gaya sa iba, lumalabas. Ok lang na maghalo ang powerade at sagin sa tyan pero ako tubig lang if ever na kumain ng saging. Nung milo nag saging ako, pero in between ng gu sya para sigurado na hindi sila maghalo.

    Yung wall, huwag isipin. It may come before or after 32 or not at all. Ang importante, wag kayong matakot sa wall na yan. Focus on the finish. Kaya tayo nag training eh para mawala o minimize yang effect ng wall na yan. Kasi kung iniisip natin ayan 32k na mayamaya andyan na ang wall, dadating talaga sya. Pero once na naging mental na ang takbo, ayan na ang start ng marathon. At this point usually na-test ang determination ng isang runner.

    Sa experience ko lang iba iba ang dating ng wall na yan. Nung milo elims 28k sya meron akong isang full 25k, meron maman na 30k plus at meron naman 60k na dumating. Huwag matakot kung damating ang wall, pwedeng naman maglakad muna, at mag focus sa finish. Never entertain thoughts na susuko ka, ako laging kasama si Lord sa takbo, sya ang aking runner support group at emotional na aid station.

    @limited ok lang na batiin mo ako, para makilala naman kita.

  44. kanya kanyang hiyang. pero di masama mag halo ang saginr or power gels. mas effective pa nga cya. depende lang talaga sa system. yan ginagamit namn sa 50km, 100km ultra trail marathon para maka survive ng ng 15hrs to 30hrs. kaya nyo yan, lakasan ng loob rin yan. wag matakot. tirada lang

  45. wala pa akong nabibiling gu and no more allowance for it :(( huhuh.. best tip to eat for this dinner naman oh… kita kits 42km runners!! 18years old here gonna with you tom :))) whooo…

  46. endure yourself. darating rin kayo sa ultra marathon at mas mahirap na ultra trail marathon. tandaan, number 1 ang nutrition. intake lang hanggat kaya dahil burn out kagad kayo for sure. thats ur fuel. mapa running yan, biking, swimming, nutrition parin. at lastly, wag tamarin. aabot rin kayo sa finish line.

  47. Kain lang ng kain. Basta kung saan ka ma sanay na pagkain. Kung normal mo na dinner eh kanin at ulam, ok na yon. Wag mag experiment ng bago at doon tayo sa sigurado na malinis. Mahirap tumakbo ng sira ang tyan.

    Btw, kung alanganin ang sikmura, safe naman uminom ng loperamide pang insurance ba.

    @let ok lang maghalo pero iwasan sabay ang saging at gels. Sabi ng gu, bumababa ang effectivity nya kung may kahalo ng sabay. Kaya ang recommendation nila tubig ang kasabay ng gu hindi sports drinks. Pero pag malayuan na talaga, mas preferred ko na ang itlog, saka pakwan kung meron.

  48. Goodluck sa lahat ng tatakbo bukas, mapa 5k, 10k, or 21k pa yan, syempre lalo na sa mga mag 42k!
