did my 1st 10km race dito sa QCIM…it was worth my newbie run…hope to join next year….now I know kaya ko na mag10-km….next stop milo marathon 10km…
Maraming salamat sa event, congratulation sa lahat ng tumakbo at GOD bless po sa lahat.
my first FullMarathon ^__^__^ thanks for the chance. nabigla yata ako pero buti hnd pinulikat. done in 05;02:25 ang saya ko at ang sarap kausap nung ibang runners listening to their past full marathon experiences. si kuya pinulikat pero tinuloy pa din ang laban! ^__^__^ ang galing mo kuya!
at salamat sa portalet, sakto nung naiihi nko, maliwanag na eh kaya nkakahiya na umihi sa commonwealth.
TNX TO ORGANIZERS AND FELLOW RUNNERS. MORE POWER TO US! ^__^__^
Enjoyed the route.. New PR for my 21k run at 2h13m. Just noticed the lack of Hydration stations going to wilcon, just my observation but other than that it was a well organized event. loved the shower area in i think the 16km mark. 1 complaint regarding the medical crew. Nilapitan na sila and everything pero tuloy lang ang chismisan nila and hindi talaga pinansin yung kasma ko na nag numb yung buong katawan after finishing his FM good thing there was an ambulance nearby. Tsktsk someone should check those incompetent staff! Nuff of the rant. Still a great race. Kudos to all (except those 4 incompetent medical staff!)
Someone took my GU gel from my belt pouch a few seconds from 21k gunstart. Buti nalang yung isa kong GU nasa harap. Kasalanan ko na rin dahil nasa likod yung pouch ko.
Nakita ko nalang my keys were dangling from its hook but at least my phone was still in tact hindi nakuha!
Boo that thief!
From a 5K participant’s point of view. Very well organized ang run na ito. Masaya kahit medyo siksikan nung nag gun start na for 5K. Ang sarap tumakbo sa taas ng Tandang Sora flyover. :) Thumbs up sa lahat ng organizers. Last 5K run ko ito, 10K category na ako next year. Sasali pa ba ako next year? Syempre basta withoutlimits parin ang organizer mas ok din sana kung hindi sabay sa Nike run. :)
Two thumbs up!!! Next year ulit. :)
thankfully natapos ko rin ang FM. Thanks QCIM. Nahirapan ako sa takbong ito. Sama ng kabag ko e hehehe.
Congrats to all the finishers especially to the 42K runners…
The run was nice, the best scenic run in the city…
Will most likely run next year…
Kudos to Withoutlimits!
Two thumbs up!
Takbo-takbo lang… (“,)

We Never Run Alone
Woooohhh!!! our first fun run ever! sobrang saya with my school mates waiting for the race reslt para malaman q name nung crush q knna sa 5km male na nagtop! galing2 go crush!!!!XD
Challenging 21K route! Long stretches of uphills! Sana rin hinuli na ‘yung UP part para na-enjoy ang view ng UP (at para maiwasan din makatapak sa lubak dahil madilim pa noong dumaan doon). Para rin iwas sa merging ng runners ng ibang distances, crowded tuloy noong malapit na sa finish line. Pero mas masaya ‘to kaysa sa usual MOA/Macapagal at BGC routes!
my first run in QCIM, but second in a 10k race. bakit naman ipinagdamot ng mga nasa hydration station ang gatorade?halos ayaw magbigay. also paanong paraan nauubusan ng loothbag?
talking for those at 21 and 41also, napakaunti ng hydration station.di pa tapos ang mga nasa half and full maratahon nagsinop na ng tubig. nakita ko ito while going home to north fairview.
sana naman without limits, ayusin next time especially this is an international marathon.
still nice run. :)
Toughest 10K challenge to para sa akin… Dahil ung Commonwealth taas baba… Pero still a nice race… 2nd 10km pero at least ngimprove ung time ko compared sa last run ko sa United Color of 88…. Next week sana mas maimprove ko pa ung oras ko sa 10k sa Milo Marathon….
thanks sa flash light sa UP, saka ung hydration na after UP oval eh after 16k na ata ulit:P hahaha. sa uulitin! wla na palang gatorade after sa UP :P set my first 21k PR :P
Congratulations to all the organizers of QCIM 2012! Very nice and challenging route. I enjoyed the fresh and cool breeze in UP and Lamesa Eco park, it was fun being one with mother nature except for commonwealth avenue, but overall, the race was great! See you next year! God bless!!
“QCIM is the most dangerous and most polluted race in the country.”
Allow me to elaborate.
1. Runners were exposed to the cars along Commonwealth Ave. No orange cones. no barricades. Small contingent of marshals. It was an accident waiting to happen. If there was an accident there was no way to protect the runners. Along the route, during the run, there was a hard screeching and braking car incident and I really prayed it would not veer towards the runners.
2. The U-turns were open and cars were coming in to the runners. Marshals were on standby but it was really dangerous with some cars ignoring the marshals.
3. I love the PNP but the I saw several of the police officers lined up only at the finish line. There were only a handful at the U-turn intersections and the commonwealth route.
4. Running in Commonwealth was like running behind a smoke-belching car. I ran in the 21K race. Early but a medium traffic already. Woe to those who finished late. Pollution may have quadrupled by 630am.
5. The UP back route was in total darkness with a handful of marshalls with small flashlights. Potholes and humps and sprains ready to happen.
I think Runnex is a prestigious organization but this is not right. Its an accident waiting to happen. You cannot expose the runners to such a hazardous environment. Never again.
I enjoin other runners to comment on my post if it is true or not.
kelan ilalabas ang results? I always keep time records for my 42k runs. :)
ang init sa commonwealth hehe! sana inuna nga un dun, taz mejo last nlng sa UP,
binagalan ko lng takbo ko sa UP andami kc lubak dko makita sa sobrang dilim.
silentkillerhills nga tlga ung up & down ng commonwealth hehhehe..
sarap sa binti, tazz umakyat baba pko ng MRT pgkatapos.
Overall good race!
i have a Large finishers’ shirt (unused) for swap with your XL or 2XL.
if interested please send to email [email protected]
i think n sadyang inuna ang u.p, dahil pag dating ng mga bandang 6am puno ng runners ang u.p kaya inuna nila.congrats to all runners.thanks without limits
My 1st 21K race at 2:29.
On time gun start for 21k (but were there latecomers for the 3am 42k gunstart?)
Plenty and cheerful/helpful marshals inside UP.
Nice wide Commonwealth road.
The last 2 water stations had pitchers with ice.
No nutrition? Whatever happened to the famous saging? Lol. Buti may baon ako na Cloud9 choco bar.
Ill-placed hydration stations (too much hydration inside UP, none between the 10k and 21k turn-around points).
Nakakalito yung mga Km marker – why will an 18km (for 21k), 7km (for 10k) be placed at different spots when both have the same Finish line? I am not sure about the actual distance tuloy. When I finished at 2:29 I did not see the 2:30 pacers – did they make it in time? Anyone checked with their GPS on the actual distance of the 21K?
Overall I am quite satisfied with the run but might stick with the usual BGC/MOA ones next time, since it is also nearer where I live.
waiting for 10k result….salamat QCIM……nag eenjoy na ako sa 10k run.. next year 21k naman …
21.01 on my Garmin. very accurate naman placing ng KM markers nila. ignore mo nlng yung markers for other category. may saging din pero 1 or 2 stations lng ata. after that puro water and gatorade nlng napancn ko.
sa commonwealth may 2 or 3 points na mejo mabaho amoy hehehe, nakakasuka eh, taz mausok na beyond 6am :(
isa pa pala napancn ko mejo hnd yata synchronized yung time, off by 4 or 5 mins? i tracked my time but different nung nkita ko sa time sa FL. anyways, pasok pdin naman sa target time ko, i always trust my gadgets.
sarap magpamasahe dun sa salonpas hehe as i watched other runners pumipila sa napakahabang photobooth, di nko nagabala pumila, magbibilad pko sa araw parang daing.
yung sa mga nagrereklamo sa lootbag, yeah gatorade lng nga laman, pero hnd nmn ako reklamador pagdating sa ganyan. basta nagenjoy ako sa race, still on my list for nextyear.
My thoughts of the run:
1. Race organisation in general including race route – excellent!
2. Hydration – great – intervals were nicely placed. You could have ran it without
own hydration as one 42K young lady runner did
3. Bananas – too close to the finish line for 42K runners. Effect would no longer
4. Medal – good enough but not great
5. Finsher’s T-shirt – Not good. Does not in any way indicate that the one wearing
was a 42K finisher – hence, does not make for a bragging right:-(
Overall: Great event, great experience.

buti nga iba may gatorade pang naabutan… ako nga inabot ko nlang tsaka mga frends ko… ung papel lang na finisher’s certificate kuno… sana man lang parchment paper gnamit nyo…
more pictures please!
Aside sa sinabi ni slowmotion na tamang tama, inuna po ang UP para i-minimize ang madaming stop-and-go ng tao at sasakayan. dahil po mas maaga, nabawasan ang naabalang sasakyan sa UP-Philcoa areas.
Dahil din po dito, nabawasan, kung hindi man nawala, ang mga nagrereklamo kagaya ng mga nakalipas na qcim.
Marami pong salamat sa pagtakbo. :)
i had a great run!
comment #22 may be right that its dangerous to run along the Killer Hi-way of the Phil (commonwealth ave) but it is the most suitable and appropriate venue to held the QCIM. There will be no accident if the driver is well educated and law-abiding citizen.
it is an intentional act if a runner will be hit by a motorist. advise lang na dapat dagdagan ng precautionary barriers para alam ng mga runners kung hanggang saan ang alloted space to run.
sakto lang ang spacing ng mga hydration (di ko nabawasan ang reserve hydration bottle ko)
small lights along UP and La Mesa is not a problem coz im always prepared for that. (basic rule in running night to early morning time is to bring light)
as for the medal, same quality with the immuvit trilogy.
the finishers shirt is simple at medyo maliit nga lang ang sizes. (lucky for those who have mugs in their lootbags)
definitely, this would be my annual year-ending marathon.
congrats running buddies arnie and jerry!
see you in the next run.
I run in the QCIM every year (21k and 42k), and sad to say, this is the least of the four I enjoyed. But I enjoyed them all, in fairness, ito lang ang least.
– Big letdown na hindi closed ang buong northbound lanes. Kung nakaya dati, bakit ngayon, hindi?
– Kulang sa hydration for the stretch from Shopwise/Ever (?) to the turn-around. I was eyeing the marshals and even the police, ready to beg in case they have extra water bottles with them. Sana kung open ang buong lane, baka pwede pa sana akong nakabili sa vendors sa gilid.
– Where have all the bands and cheerers gone? I remember na last year, parang mas marami sila kaysa ngayon.
– Sana nakapasok rin sa La Mesa ang 21k runners. It would have been a nice part of the route.
– Kulang ang photogs. They covered the other races held on the same date. Sana nagbigay ng incentives ang QCIM organizers for more photogs to cover this race. I hear that there’s enough budget for it naman given by the QC government.
– When the 5k runners came out, napuno ang daan going to the finish line. This wouldn’t have been a problem had more lanes been closed to vehicular traffic.
– The sloping route is exciting. It’s not flat so a bit challenging.
– The marshals inside UP were numerous and helpful, with their flashlights and shouted warnings (“May hump po! Ingat!”…”May lubak dyan!”)
– The race started on time. (But was there an issue of some 42k runners not knowing that the gunstart had been moved to 3 am?)
– It’s always nice to run along Commonwealth Ave.
– Naka-PR ako! :-)
Thanks sa organizers. It’s hard to put up a perfect race, and I’m sure you did your best.
sharing my experience here:
Hi sir, the 21k route enters UP before it continues to Commonwealth ave., hence, their 7th KM mark is different from the 7th KM mark of the 10K since it does not enter UP grounds.
PINAKA THE BEST 42K route EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!8 Thumbs up!!!!
compare to milo… mas mahirap ung ngayong 42k
@WL-Congrats to your event. Am sure it was a logistic nightmare to hold such a grand event at a busy highway at that. Pasalamat pa rin ako sa inyo at walang nangyaring disgrasya.
Re the km markers, I would expect kasi the 18km(for 21k) and 7km(for 10k) be on the same spot kasi pareho silang 3kms to go…
@Arnel, yup so far ang pinaka mahirap na Full Mary so the other runners said.
Compare sa RUPM mas mahirap to.
Also some of the pics by tsinelas runner
Feel free to tag and share :-)
i agree with eagle runner…im not the hard core runner and the longest KM i ran was 10Km its my first time to run for the QCIM marathon…but just comparing it with the bgc runs and the moa runs…there were bananas ready for the runners and the gatorade drinks were not limited…and yes the commonwealth stretch was not a good venue for runs, the air was so polluted, they could have used the mindanao ave. stretch instead, less traffic and less pollution…this is just my own opinion.
I agree with the others. The 4th QCIM was the most dangerous event that I attended exposing runners to accident especially the U-turns at walang harang ang lane for runners. Pag mag oovertake ka sa runners na naglalakad lang you have to look at your left side kung hindi ka mahahagip ng koptseng nag oovertake naman sa mga kotse. I pitied those who were not able to finish the run especially who joined the 42k and 21k kasi inopen na nila ng before 9 am ang mga lanes at delikado silang masagasaan. Mas gusto ko ang ginawa nila nuong mga nakaraang 3 QCIM. Ayusin nila ito sa susunod ha. Sana wala ngang naaksidete. Commonwealth is the most dangerous hi-way pa naman. Isasali pa ang mga runners.
@comment #39: IMHO, mas delikado po kung sa Mindanao Ave ang way since mas matraffic po duon and worst baka katabi mo pa tatakbo yung mga sasakyan kasi masikip yung daan and maiksi lang Mindanao Ave. unlike Commonwealth na napakalawak ng running lane compare sa 32nd Ave at Lawton Ave in Taguig or in Gil Puyat Ave na may nabangga sa intersection despite sa dami ng Traffic Enforcer.
Besides, QCIM is an international marathon event and NOT a FUN Run so every participant should be prepared to finish within the standard time set by AIMS. Its not good to shut down a main road for a very long time just for the walkers. Im sure babanggahin ka talaga ng mga driver na naipit sa traffic at nagmamadali sa kanilang pupuntahan.
tinipid ang hydration. loot bags certificate lng laman. wla man lang finisher drink 21k runner ako pdating ko ubos na daw hahaha joke time kayo!
congratulations to all :-)
International marathon? Runners na Nkikipag patintero sa mga sasakyan. Mga marshal na nagpulasan 1hr b4 cutoff, walang barrier/cones, mga “walkers” na sa island nlang naglalakad kase open na sa trapik ang kalsada 1hr b4 cutoff. Walang poportalets along sa route, . What is the standard time ng aims? Pang elite lang ba ang qcim? Bat nag sabi cila 7hrs ang cutoff kung d an susundin? Yung 6:00 n 6:15 pacers sa island nlang tumatakbo.
i agree na mas earlier sana yung start ng 10K and 5K runners, most walkers naka harang sa lanes going to the finish line.
Photos taken about 8:20am onwards along the finish line,
withoutlimits always pangit ang medal
Where is the result????
NIKE has already completed result even 12400 huge
RIO is so good.
Some 42k photos
Hi! This is my first half marathon. I’m just wondering if the goodie really did include just the same singlet worn during the run, and not a finisher’s shirt. If ever a finisher’s shirt should have been in the goodie bag, is there a chance for me to exchange the one issued to me? Thank you.
Malayo s standard pra twanging international marathon!!! Death run much better!!! Peace!!!
Well, my 1st half mary went good. finished it in 2:07 not bad for a 1st timer. The bad thing is, the finisher shirt is not a finisher shirt… it’s an ordinary singlet!
dami reklamo, pasalamat nlng u finish the race ng buhay pa kau hehe,
ung mga downside, part tlga ng race yan, wala pong perfect na race, struggle til the end labanan dito, besides marathon nga to hindi fun run pra ma provide lahat ng gusto nyo along the route. well atleast take this as a lesson nlng, always prepare urself, more importantly bring ur own hydration. buti nlng nagbasa basa ako ng reviews nito dati hehehe
[modified repost from facebook] I think Without Limits & Proactive did a great job given the time & resources that you had. :) I particularly enjoyed the route especially the “crucial” kilometers within La Mesa Ecopark. I enjoyed that route better than BCG-MOA. It was a happy & relaxing run for me despite the inherent dangers of the Commonwealth stretch. :)
I found the hydration & nutrition stations, and the safety measures to be sufficient. Medyo “spoiled” na po kasi ang mga runners ngayon sa races. Sana marinig ng ibang runners ang mga kwento ng mga “veteran” runners na marunong maging self-sufficient sa race (e.g. nagdadala ng sariling hydration gear at food, headlamp) at hindi kumakarera para lang sa medal, sa mga banda sa ruta, sa freebies, sa finisher’s shirt, sa bragging rights sa finish times pero dahil mahal nilang tumakbo. Gaya ng sabi ni Running Buddies_Jerry, “ung mga downside, part tlga ng race yan, wala pong perfect na race”. Marami pang pwedeng improvements para next year. :)
Nevertheless, Kudos to all the people who gave their time and effort to make this running event possible! :)
Daming reklamo! Pag mahal, rereklamo. may saging at wala, rereklamo! Nakita n’yo ba presyo ng runs na kinukumpara nyo?
@COMMENT #41…i was thinking more of closing the mindanao ave stretch for the duration of the run…anyway the pictures speaks for itself. i rest my case..and i dont intend to do marathon running…they should not include the 5 and 10k run there if they intend it for marathoners alone…
I agree with @Jerry and @Mandaragat, dapat laging handa.
Sa mga gustong makaranas ng very SAFE and CLEAN race route plus a very challenging race then register na po sa Subic International Marathon set on Jan 26 & 27, 2013. (separate days po yung short at long distance categories).
Takbo-takbo lang. Stay safe…
Grabe run at your own risk ito. Pasalamat nalang at walang naaksidente. Wag na kyo magpatakbo ng 42k kung di nyo kaya magsarang kalsada dahil istorbo mga runners sa mga motorist. 21k nlang start u.p – finish sa la mesa.
Wal parin race results?
agree ako sayo @kikoman.. hindi pa yata nila kaya mag organize ng 42k.. run for your life.. akala ko nga sarado yung isang lane ng commonwealth paglabas galing up, nang bigla na lng may sumulpot na sasakyan at motor sa likod ko nasa gitna pa naman ako tumatakbo…hays.. buti na lng may lamesa eco-park at may isang mug yung loot bag. salamat na lng po tayo at walang na aksidente…
This was my first run and I quite enjoyed it, particularly the stretch along the flyover. The run “uphill” was a little challenging for someone used to running on flat surfaces but the view more than made up for it. I couldn’t help smiling to myself when I saw that I had actually run past landmarks that I usually pass by vehicular means.
As in the above comments, I also was a little worried about possible accidents but I’m glad none happened. Since I only ran the 5k, I didn’t experience the polluted air quite as much as the longer distance runners. However, at a hydration station, I went to get a cup of water and I saw that the water had some black particles in it due to the pollution. Good thing I kept my cup from a previous hydration station and had it refilled straight from the pitcher otherwise I would be drinking literally polluted water. The water stations were placed at good intervals, though.
Another thing I was a little disappointed in was the lack of lootbags for the 5k runners. There were still a lot of us who hadn’t exchanged their stubs but all that were left were empty lootbags. I still exchanged my stub for an (empty) lootbag, though and filled it with other freebies from the other stalls. hehe.
Overall, it was a great first race. There were some downsides to it but the great experience overshadows the negatives.
@crescent: singlet talaga ang nilagay sa loot bag kc maraming natirang singlet konte lang nagregister kaya ayun pinamigay nalang nila as loot. okay na rin kesa wala.
buti na lang may finisher’s ballpen. ahaha
uulitin ko, yung medal panget talaga
ung gatorade maappreciate ko sana kung malamig binigay after ng race kc last 4 km di ka na makahydrate sa siksikang 5k walkersss/runners.
ung race experience itself, quite nice.
buti kayo me mug marami kayang di nabigyan sa 42km na MUG… ano yun kinuha nanaman ng mga volunteer….
@aaa: we hope not see accusations here. Please show us concrete proof na kinuha ng volunteers ang mugs. We do not need to list down all the lootbag items sponsors gave because there was NONE…we bought the Gatorade. This is not a profit-gaining run. Half of the runners were public school students whom Runnex supports.
We hope everyone be mature enough to understand.
Naalala ko tuloy yung First run ko sa NatGeo walang medal, walang finisher shirt, walang loot bag at walang certificate pero umuulan ng malamig na tubig. From then on di na ako nag expect or nag aspire pa ng Freebies. I run because I want to prove something for myself, and hello tatakbo ka ba ng 42k at ng 21k para lang sa Freebies?People be mature.
Guys question, Posible ba na ang isang 11 years old ay makatakbo ng 42K. Crush ko na kasi yung may bib number 40568. Haha… :)
Hindi ko alam kung typo error yung age nya nasa result.
Chris: Thank you.
It’s funny how people rant about not getting mugs, just getting ballpens, getting another singlet inside their lootbags, getting uncold Gatorade inside their lootbags, small medals and finishers shirt.
If we are to compute, please count the singlet cost, the timing chips, the cost of medals and finishers shirts, hundreds of marshals (waterstations, security, ambulance, route marshals) who worked days and nights, the food expenses shouldered by the organizers, the permit to run along Commonwealth Ave, UP and Quezon Ave, the sleepless nights and headaches of working with different government agencies with internal issues, the VERY limited resources and time that are out of a third control.
Even if we get the total registration fees, it won’t sum up to all the expenses Runnex spent to run the event.
If you got extra item than the loot bag, that means, you belong to the first 100 or 200 of your distance. If none, then you should try running faster.
Buti nalang nakakuha ako ng matinong loot bag.. hehehe
Kidding aside, With or without lootbags, medals etc.. It doesn’t matter. We ran because we love the sport and that is it. If you receive a lootbag/medal its an added bonus. We should all just be thankful that we were able to run this route thanks to the organizers. Peace! :)
@nai parehas tyo ng crush.. dko nga nasabayan ang bilis ng pace nya.
I did not run because of the lootbag or the medal or the finisher’s kit, although I really needed the certificate for my graduation requirement but still, its all about the running experience….Nung nasa loob ako ng La Mesa Ecopark at nung pabalik na ako sa finish line malapit sa Iglesia ni Kristo, napahinto talaga ako kasi the feeling was surreal. Sometimes you need to stop and look around to realize the wonder of it all and in this case, all made possible kasi I chose to run. :)
Puro Reklamo – you can’t blame runners to give their opinions about the event. instead of giving your opinion to the opinion of others, give opinion to the event of what you experienced. kaya nga may forum. just saying.
@kikoman Ayun oh, may nakakilala. :) So, eleven years old lang talaga siya? Hindi halata sa katawan nya at ang ganda nya tapos 42K pa ang tinakbo. Saludo ako, ang galing.
@NAI…siya ba yun Crush mo https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=455529927817970&set=a.455527334484896.93196.431236173580679&type=3&theater?

mag comment lng ako sa 42k,sa loob ng u.p madilim sana nilagyan ng reflectorize na sticker or paint yung mga humps,hndi sapat ang puro flash light lng,kulang ang mga ilaw sa daan,kaya may mga naligaw sa rota,ang saging sobrang liit,lamog pa.he he,ang water hndi mlamig sa ibang station..ang gatorade tinipid,pag dating sa commonwlt sobrang usok,dapat yung full strech ng cmwelt ay may barricade pra walang mkapasok na sasakyan,kulang sa marcials sa cmnwelth,delikado pa nman..pag dating sa lamesa dam mejo fresh air na.pero kulng pa din sa hydration area,,kaya dismaya tlaga ako sa 42k ng qcim,,ang masaklap pa 3am nag start,ang dpat 4am,walang announcement or txt man lng kaya ang daming na late kahit taga q.c hndi alam 3am start..kaya ang rate ko sa 42k ay pasang awa,75%..ewan ko sa ibang distance kung ano sitwasyon sa kanila..pero salamat na din at may finisher shirt..he he..runnex sana next time ayusin nyo patakbo nyo..yan lng po experience ko mga comment ko..
Regarding sa early start po, alam ko nag announce po sila dito sa Pinoy Fitness and maski dun sa takbo.ph na 3 AM na yung start nung 42K. Kasi marami talaga nag rewuaest na agahan yung start kasi mainit na masyado para sa mga 5-6 hours tatapos ng FM pag 4 AM ang start.
Takbo-takbo lang… (“,)
umaasa ako tatakbo din sya dun, pra naman maramdaman nya sekretong relasyon namen hehehe
malaking bulas, maganda future nitong babaeng to hehe.. future saken :)
nag announce ng change of time sir, dito sa PF and sa FB page nila.

Enjoyed the Fourth SMDC Quezon City International Marathon and will breturn next year!
bakit ba po nagkakaroon ng “Unknown Finisher” complete naman info ko nung nag register ako. disappointed lng kc it’s my first 21k tapos wala pa name ko sa result, pangit pa medal.
malamang naunang inintindi yun binayad natin kesa sa info na binigay natin..sayang ang papel na ginawang form kung di nyo din ilalagay sa date base nyo….
speaking of papel.. mas maganda pa ung papel na ginamit sa registration form kesa sa binigay na certificate.. natapon tuloy nang kasama nmin sa bahay ung certificate nung kala daw kasi scratch paper lang.. iba pa nmn kasi ung kulay ng papel.. pagkakamalan mo ngang pinapangbalot lang sa tinapa.. hihi…
kahit ganun ung certificate, nanghihinayang pa rin ako.. first Full marathon ko pa nmn.. hahaha..
congratulations to all! :-)
Unknown Finisher. Medyo ang sakit naman nun, complete naman yung info nung nag register ako, sa SM Grass residence pa, kasi naubusan na ako ng size sa Chris Sports.
@Bagito & Brian: Hi sir, May I know kung san po kayo nagparegister and yung full name niyo and yung bib no. niyo? Thanks po.
To all, sorry for the inconvenience sir. Peace tayo lahat! ^^,v
Without Limits Team
Unknown finisher din ako. Mali pa ung gender. :( First 21K ko pa naman un..:(
