amateur runners are allowed right?

Daves said...

yes! anybody can join. whether you are a seasoned racer or a recreational runner/jogger, anyone can participate and join the event :)

Rose Ann Mallen said...

ok lang po ba magdala ng camera while running? need ko po kasi ng pictures para mapakita sa prof namin na nagjoin ako ng run for environment..

Daves said...

rose ann, it is generally not advised to bring a camera while running. you have 2 options here, (1) take some pictures before and after the event; (2) ask a friend (non-runner) to take pictures of you while running

though ive seen several participants who does carry one and take pictures of themselves en route, my suggestion is go on the tail end of the pack in the assembly area and stick on the right side of the road so as not to impede other runners

good luck on your run and hope to see you there :)

Kasana na po ba Yung T-Shirt sa registration Fee?

Daves said...

Daves said...

melanie, when i registered at Megamall they only have 1 size (XL) for everyone. i haven't verified if MOA or North Edsa has other sizes available

Anonymous said...

OUR COMPANY WANT TO BE PART OF THIS EVENT AND WANTED TO BE ONE OF YOUR SPONSOR COULD WE HAVE UR SPONSORSHIP PROPOSAL? FAX NO.687-5849 MANILA NATURE'S LINK CORP. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Daves said...

re: registration

simply proceed to the Business Center of any of the 4 SM branches (Mega, MOA, Southmall, North Edsa)

just state to the counter that you want to register for the fun run. they will be handing over the registration form (2 copies) of which you need to fill up both

once filled up, fall in line and pay the necessary registration fee and hand them back the registration form

the personnel will now be providing you the singlet/shirt and a brown envelope that contains the race bib, race map, and race mechanics

good luck on your run! :)

wala bang registration online??

Daves said...

unfortunately there's no online registration available for this event

ask ko lang po if 5 year old child can join the fun run?

Daves said...

i believe they will allow it. i didn't see in the registration form that they dont allow kids to run. in addition, i've seen other races where children can join

just keep them at your side at all times. and, if possible, run at the right side of the road to allow faster participants to run ahead of you

have fun and good luck! :)

Daves said...

you may want to get in touch to the business center you registered with. on a worst case scenario, you'd have to sign-up again to be able to join the fun run

Anonymous said...

Daves said...

Anonymous said...

My boss wants to be apart of the event, he wants to be a sponsor. How can we make that happen? tnx alot!

Anonymous said...

A good number of our employees will be joining. Registration fee will be to the care of our company. Is it allowed that only one representative will process the registration and payment of fees on behalf of all participants from our company?

Please advice. Thank you

Anonymous said...

There's more slots pa ba?

Anonymous said...

thanks dave :))

Daves said...

re: 3 yrs old son

it is possible to tag along your son. please make sure you are on the right side of the road during the run so as to let other runners pass thru safely

in addition, you may want to be at the tail-end of the runners/crowd on the starting line

have a safe and injury-free run :)

Daves said...

re: sponsorship

i have no specific details on how to go about it. you may want to get in touch with the business centers/registration site of SM and obtain a contact person that can help you with

Daves said...

re: group registration

this is possible

i suggest that you get a copy of the registration form at SM's business center and ask all participants to fill it up and have it signed

then 1 person can bring it back and pay for all the registrants/runners

on my case, i was able to register my mom and sister and as their representative, i was the one who signed the registration forms

Anonymous said...

meron po bang ibang activities or booths?

Anonymous said...

hi, meron po bang mga freebies yung mga sponsors?

Daves said...

as i am aware there will be post-race activities onsite. with regards to freebies, this detail we still need to get confirmation from the organizers

have fun on april 10 :)

Anonymous said...

ABout po sa baggage booth, sure po ba na safe po ang gamit na iiwan, once we run? kasi wala pong magbabantay ng gamit, lahat kami tatakbo...

Anonymous said...

sir may i be adviced that one representative can stll register in behalf of the others who would like to register, pls reply

Daves said...

re: baggage deposit

there are personnel assigned at the baggage stations to look after your things. the caveat is, the organizers are not responsible if your bags/belongings gets lost. i suggest you pack light so you don't have to deposit anything

if you must, then please make sure that you don't put any precious/expensive items inside your bag

Daves said...

re: group registration

yes, it is possible to only have 1 person to register in behalf of the group. though, if i may suggest, please make sure that the participants themselves fill up and sign the registration form. it'll be a lot easier for the representative to handle the registration

Kathleen Anne said...

May available slots pa po ba? and.. Pwede po ba mag-register ang below 18yrs old kahit di kasama parents?

Grabe said...

I went to MOA to register for this event... The lady said, "Wala po kaming singlet kaya hindi po kami nagpaparegister". I asked if may dumadating bang singlet sa kanila and she said "Kahapon po pero iilang piraso lang po".

Daves said...

re: slots availability

i wasn't able to drop by yesterday to check on the number of available slots

SM Megamall - 5th Floor near Bridgeway
SM MOA - 2nd Floor beside Philcopy
SM North Edsa - 2nd Floor Skybridge The Block across Time Studio
SM Southmall - 3rd Floor, Beside Bingo Bonanza

Daves said...

Quennie said...

Ah. Edi kahit kami lang po ng friends ko bukas magpa-register. Eh pano po yun, yung post po ni Grabe, wala na pong singlets sa MOA. Pano po yun?

egroch said...

Daves said...

hi egroch, let us know how your registration go :)

Qu said...

Kapag wala po sa MOA, try po namin sa Megamall. Sana nga po. Gusto po kasi namin sumali :) Btw, thanks po sa info!

Kikay Overload said...

Guys, Help naman...may nakakaalam ba kung pwede magsama ng aso? Sana pwede, running buddy ko kasi ang aso ko..hehe

egroch said...

@sir dave,registered na po me w/ my 2 friends an hour ago at sm north,.. :)

Daves said...

myla/kikay overload

ive seen at least 2 road races where an owner brought her pet dog. so i hope the kapuso organizers will allow your buddy to run alongside

hope you'd get that tagaytay wedding you wanted :) congratulations to you and Mc! wishing you all the best!

Daves said...

Qu, i really hope you'd be able to register. i wanted to get some information at megamall but didn't push thru because of my scheduled run today

Daves said...

egroch, happy to hear that! :)

Quennie said...

kung from MOA po to North Edsa, ano po ang ssakyan?

Daves said...

Quennie, you can either take a bus from MOA bound to Monumento. Or take the MRT and get off at North Edsa station.

I suggest you ask the personnel in MOA if they can make a call to Megamall to see if they have sufficient singlet. so you don't have to travel that far

good luck! let us know if you were able to register :)

akosirose said...

Sure Daves no problem.. =)

akosirose said...

See you guys on Sunday! =) what's your race number guys???

Anonymous said...

pwede po ba hndi sumali?

Kikay Overload said...

Uy thanks Daves! I also asked my friend to call the organizers and ask about bringing a dog, ok lang daw basta make sure na it's safe for the dog and and for the other peeps running. Yey! Humahabol pa nga na I-register ko fiance ko (Mc) kasi naman, dapat daw physically present when you register. My other friend went to megamall,sabi dun ubos na ung singlet pero baka may delivery ulet sa friday (April 8). kaya pwede pa mag pa-register. Sana umabot pa.

Daves said...

great to hear that myla! ayan tatlo na kayong tatakbo sa sunday

singlet delivery on friday? does that mean extended yung registration? that'll be good news para sa iba na gusto mo humabol :)

Kikay Overload said...

Ewan ko lang kung paasa lang sila pero sabi nung friend ko na nagpunta kanina sa megamall, SM Business services had her sign an acknowledgement sheet with the name and phone number. Friday pa day madedeliver ung singlet so "registration will resume". Sana lang totoo... and they gave her a tip to be back between to 10 am to 5pm. Good luck sa mga hahabol.. =)
