Run United 2011 – The First Leg

29 Jan

The husbo and I are excited! We just found out that details of the first leg of Run United 2011 has been released!  One of my running goals is to finish a 5k run and this is my chance!  The husbo being the sweet person he is, told me he would run 5k in this even as well to keep pace with me.  Awww.  Anyway, here are the details:

This RunRio team promises this to be the biggest family event for 2011 boasting of 4 race categories: 500m, 5k, 10k and 21k.  Run United 1 -2011 is going to be on March 6, 2011 at th BGC (Bonifacio Global City) but registration starts on Monday, January 31, 2011.

Registration periods are:

1. Online Registration – from January 31, 2011 to February 21, 2011.  Important note: Please be informed that there is an additional P150 delivery fee and additional P93.75 processing fee if you register online.  This is NOT included on the organizer’s website, so don’t get surprised when you do the online registration. If you are registerting for the 5k or 10k, your total amount may be at P843.75 when you register online. Please also check how much was charged to your credit card.  Mine was charged extra P16.06 (total of P859.81 was charged) from the grand total indicated.  I am still trying to call the RunRio team for clarification but the line is always busy. I sent an email about it and will try calling them again. I will update you on the status.

One of the important reminders from the organizer is that registrations may end earlier than announced deadline therefore, race kits may run out before February 26,2010. Judging from the past events organized by the RunRio team, it is best if you register early so you can get a slot.  For more information on registration fees or singlet design and size, check them out here.

I am beyond excited and pumped up to start training! LOL!

Just a word of caution though to the parents who are thinking of bringing their kids and pets along the 5k route.  Please consider their safety before joining.  There are usually thousands of participants in the 5k route and they run! Your kids and pets might get bumped and stepped on.  There’s a 500m event for the kids to join so I suggest you have them join there instead.  I don’t mean to offend anyone, it’s just that at the last event for RunRio, there were a lot of kids walking with their parents or are on bikes and pets on leash at the 5k route.  It was scary to think what could happen to them if a group of runners run them down.  Please also consider that this is a running event and there are some serious runners out there.  Tagging your kids or pets along to walk with you can disrupt the runner’s momentum.
