  1. more Finisher’s shirt this year unlike last year? Finisher’s shirt (especially the quality ones) is something one can be proud of in joining extreme events like this. I even prefer it (Finisher’s shirt) over Finisher’s medal (w/c is just being kept @ home) & the singlet (where some of us have our own preferred running shirt). Pls include the Merrell shirt as priviledge of every finisher.

  2. Sana may finishers medal all categories. Token lang sa pgjoin. Nakapagparegister nako kahapon. Sana organizers will hear me. Medals for all categories :)

  3. yeah. a finishers medal for all will be good. if not at least first 100 man lang. this is a hard run. I’ve been to pintong bukawe on a mountain bike trail run it is not easy. now kung may finisher’s shirt mas magaling. go merrell!!! I have 3 merrell shoes and I hope to wear both finishers medal and shirt with it…

  4. @Pip #8. Just because medals are kept at home it doesn’t mean you can’t be proud of them. You can have it placed in a special case which can be seen and admired by every visitor to your home. Shirts? Well, they fade after several washings.

  5. To experienced trail runners: Is it ok to participate in the 21K if it’s my first trail run? I have done a number of 21K road races but no trail run experience. Also, do I need to wear trail running shoes for this one? Your comments/advise/opinions are very much appreciated. Thanks.

  6. Too bad they won’t be giving away Finishers’ Shirt. Last year I joined the 21K & got the finishers’ shirt pero ang problem lang ay yung Shuttle bus which were supposed to leave Market Market at around 4:30AM. But what happened was the bus left the meeting place past 5:00 AM kaya lahat kami super late.. Matagal nang nag gun start ang 21K kaya humabol na lang kami at halos kasabay na namin nag start ang mga 10K runners. What an experience.. Anyway, I just hope the shuttle bus will follow the time schedule.. Happy Running guys!!

  7. to the organizer, when I registered outside Manila, the sales executive told me that shuttle van service exclusive for Market2x and Trinoma registrants, what about us? where can we pay to avail the services? please advise

  8. For those who wants to avoid the delayed of the shuttle, We are offering a van ride back and forth to the venue. P350 lng po. Puede assembly place mcdo boni or mcdo quezon ave. both venue ay sa baba ng mrt..text lang po..09184595910.
    balikan na po.. alis tayo ng avoid being late on the event..Thanks.

  9. First ever trail run.sana may finishers medal nalang lahat ng runners. 5k lang naman sasalihan ko. Para umabot sa finishline ng buhay.haha excited nako. Organizer finishers medal please. Remembrance and token lng para sa mga baguhang tulad ko. :)

  10. I own/drive a 22+ Seater Toyota Coaster. Would I be allowed to use my vehicle to provide transport for other people wanting to attend the event for a reasonable fee? Is there a demand/need for transport coming to the event if the pick-up was from MASINAG/SUMULONG/MARCOS HWY intersection area? 0919 450 6438.

  11. Yes Top50 lang tlga meron sa 5k and 10k.. kaya nga sana mpagbigyan ng organizers na meron lahat ng runners na mkktpos ng run. Para narin sa mga tulad naming bago palang sa gnitong klase ng event. :)

  12. BARAKO RUNNERS: Hi Guys just some few question..we’re planning to register this week for 21K in Market Market, What I want to know is when we register we just tell the personnel that we’re going to avail the shuttle as well?? or is there another process for that??

  13. @Bones,

    I have some clips from 2012 MAR. I can say madaming nahilig sa trail-run after ma experience nila ito sa Merrell. Clips from Merrell start at 2:00 may kasama kasi ibang runs yung video namin.

    “passing river, mud crawl, uphill climb.” Lahat ito meron atbp. :)

    Also, it is recommendable to use “Trail-running” shoes ma sisira lang road shoes nyo dito. If VibramFiveFingers naman ang trip nyo make sure Trail type gamitin nyo like Komodo and KSO trail.

  14. I will do the 21k again but please no more second loops unless you can be sure that the terrain will not be wet and muddy….last year was a mess….by the 2nd loop, we could barely run because the soil was so wet and eroded from too many runners using the route in the 1st loop.

  15. This is just a week after TNF100 napa aga ngayon yung schedule ng MAR to avoid the rainy season. Willing victim nanaman mga enthusiast ng Trail-runs dito to name few:

    [email protected]©€$”

    Isama pa dyan yung Salomon X-trai. Kumusta naman ba budget natin dyan?

    Ang laki na ng ipon natin sa trail. Hehe

  16. hahahaha….ouch tinamaan ako dun ha…butas na din ba bulsa mo sir boyzilla?
    bakit naman kasi nagkasunod-sunod ang mga trail runs starting sa Salomon xtrail, PImCO Adventure Run, TNF100, at itong MAR….
    hehehe…im sure halos buong sahod na pag pinagsama lahat ito…
    kitakits na lang sa trail mga kasahang mahihilig sa trail….i.e. sir boyzilla, emptybutfull, john, ryan atbpa.

  17. hi, I’m also offering my shuttle service, for now, for 7 people from and to Trinoma.. if the demand increases, then I’ll see what I can do to provide a bigger/more van/s. thank you. safe running everyone.. :)

  18. on hold muna yung offer ko, medyo hindi feasible.. so what we can do is to check for the demand and from there, see if I can provide a shuttle service, thanks..

    M Metzger: okay yan, sir. maappreciate yan ng mga runners if kailangan and basta alam mo lang yung needs and maayos ka magwork. good luck!

  19. Not sure I understand the registration process properly. Does it take two visits to the same merrell shop, one in March one in April to get a race number? I’m not bothered about, shirts, vests, medals etc.

  20. Good pm, I had registered for Merrell Adventure Run 2013, could you provide us with a sketch of the place. We are going there by ourselves. Thanks!

  21. If your from Antipolo or near that area and would be commuting, meron pong jeep na Pintong Bukawe ang route, i can’t verify kung 24hrs ba ang pasada nila, will ask pagbalik namin sa Camp Sinai

    • Hi Reydor,

      Donna here from Merrell, from SM masinag you may take jeepney route cogeo gate 2, then ask the driver to drop you off to RUBLOU MARKET PLACE and take another jeepney ride going to gate 2 & Pintong Bukawe. It’s in Sitio Sapinit, Bgy. San Juan, Antipolo. You may also take the road going to Philip Sanctuary. Registration is also extended until April 15.


  22. may i ask lng po, 1st time on trail running, done lots of 21K road & uphill. pwede na ba mag 21K here? me cut off time po ba? thanks

    • HI Bot,

      Trail running is usually 3x harder thank trail running, you have the consider the effort in running uphill, downhill and swimming in mud pits hehe. Trail is more exciting than road runs, its harder but the reward is unimaginable. I suggest if its your first time to run an off road terrain you can register at 5k but if you thing your strong enough you can register at 10k. Merrell registration is extended until April 15.

      Hope to see you.

      Thank you

  23. mga kelan po kaya makeclaim yung mga singlets sa registration sites? :)
    sana may finishers t-shirt :)
    more power sa mga organizers! ^_^

  24. Kaya k kaya mag 21k kahit wala pako experience sa trail? madami nadin ako experience tulad ni @bote63. pati ok lang kahit running shoes ang gamitin ko hindi yung pang trail na shoes. thanks!

  25. Hi Charles, bote63,

    My personal advice to those who wants to try trail-runs (first-timers) is to start gradually since this is significantly different from road-ruining. in terms of: track, equipment (hydration system), locations, logistics (Water stations), some rules and methods in running, etc..

    You may start at a shorter distance (5k-10k) to just have a taste of it and get to know if you would like it or not. So if find yourself not enjoying it, at least you could still finish the run and not prolong your agony. But most-likely you will love it. Maraming na in-love sa trail-runs because of MAR. :)

    Also, it would be safer to inexperienced trail-runners to run a shorter distance since injuries are more prone to happen, specially if the trail would require some technical skills like MAR and TNF100. But you would still be able to get the drift on a shorter track, then perhaps elevate your distance on your next trail-run and so on. Ito yung assessment stage.

    If you can afford to acquire trail-shoes, please do. Sisirain lang trail yung road shoes mo at pahihirapan ka pa sa pag takbo. There are some inexpensive brands that you can start with.

  26. nakapagparegister na ko dito nung last ColorManilaNIteRun.. just waiting for the date.. sana may finishersmedal na lahat ng 5k finisher..firsttime ko kc mag trail run.. hehe

  27. HI! update lang po, ang pick up ng van service ay sa mcdo boni na baba ng mrt, para ma accomodate yung mga manggagaling ng south area. P350 po per head, balikan na po yun. text me lang sa 09184595910. Thanks

  28. Sana naman kasama sa info niyo na kailangan personal na magreregister ang runner o kaya kung magpaparegister lang e kailangan ng valid ID at authorization. kulang naman kayo sa info.. layo pa ng pinanggalingan namin just to register..

  29. Id like to run the 21k distance.. hopefully the organizers open up slots again for it..

    or if anyone registered in the 21k event. and you wont be able to run it.. kindly message me.. willing to buy your 21k slot..

    maraming salamat po..

  30. @ram may slots sa SM Pampanga branch(San Fernando), please coordinate merrell nearest you para mapa reserver ka at dapat pupuntahan mo dun.

  31. d q agad napansin, its camp sinai now, and not in Timberland Heights no more, but still in San Mateo, Rizal. The latter really gave me a beating, extreme challenge: the mud, the rain, and the steep slopy terrain. Im hoping the new venue would, if not surpass, would at least retain the challenges I am expecting (or shud i say, WE are expecting).

  32. papanu po pupunta sa venue kapag magcocommute lang?
    galing Cubao? or sino po may iooffer na shuttle or van? thanks po :)
