Independence Day Pilipinas Half Marathon 2011

This year the Philippines will celebrate its 123rd year of Independence. On Sunday June 12, 2011, we are organizing a big running event in line with the national day of celebration at the Bonifacio Global City. We have come up with an activity that will unify Filipinos in their appreciation of national independence and sovereignty. Filipinos shall have a (half) marathon race as venue to demonstrate their love of country. The event dubbed as the 2nd Independence Day Pilipinas Half Marathon: The Filipino Race.

The Filipino Race has four (4) race distances: 3 Km, 5 Km, 10 Km and a half-marathon that will start and finish at the 29th Street of Bonifacio Global City. All finishers of the half marathon will receive commemorative medals and the top 100 finishers of the 10km, 5km and 3km will also be awarded medals.

There will be 10 age group competitions and the Top Three (3) runners of each age group will be awarded cash prizes and medals. Age Grouping are as follows: MALE a) 15 years old and below, b) 16 to 29 years old, c) 30 to 39 years old, d) 40 to 49 years old, e) 50 to 59 years old and f) 60 years old and over; FEMALE a) 15 years old and below, b) 16 to 29 years old, c) 30 to 39 years old and d) 40 years old and over.

The organizers, in coordination with H.E.L.P. (Hope for Economic Liberty and Peace) Foundation, will also give educational scholarships to at least ten deserving students from the proceeds of the event.

We would like you to share with us, in the celebration of our INDEPENDENCE DAY, a running demonstration of our patriotism and love for country by being counted as one in this Gathering of Patriots. Our foreign friends are also welcomed to join in the celebration

Important Reminders
1 Participants must wear their IDPM singlet.  Race numbers should be pinned in front and must clearly be visible at all times while on the race course
2 Pre-race checkin is mandatory.  It provides the only proof that you have started from the proper starting area.  Check-in starts at 5:10AM and ends by 5:25AM.  If you arrive after 5:30AM, you will be allowed to run but you will not be considered as finisher
3 The course marshal and race officials under the guidance of the Race Director will have the ultimate authority and final decision for any violations of the rules and regulations.  Participants are requested to heed the directions and instructions of all race officials.  Runners should run on the inner right side of the road unless otherwise told by the race officials.
4 The Race Director will have the final authority to remove any participant/s if judged to be physically incapable of continuing the race without sustaining severe physical damage or loss of life
5 Any participant who voluntarily withdraws from the race MUST REPORT to the nearest race official.  There will always be officials and communications personnel throughout the race course to assist anyone
6 Runners accepting outside assistance, except from official aid and water station will be disqualified on the spot.  Likewise, runners obviously aided by other runners and runners intentionally impeding the progress of overtaking runners.  No competitor will be allowed to run with bare torso.  Unsportsmanlike conduct will result to immediate disqualification
7 Please cross the finish line only once.  Doing so more than once is unsportsmanlike and will adversely affect the accuracy of your official time as well as of those runners behind you.  You will be guided by chute controllers on which chute to enter.  Once inside the chute, do not overtake runners ahead of you.  At the end of the chute, officials will detach your number tag and place it on a spindle, which will be sent to the processing table for official scoring
8 Awards ceremonies will start by 8:30AM.  If you think you finished, at least, within the top 3 in your age group, kindly situate yourself near the stage so that there would be undue delay
9 Complaints or protests must be filed in writing, accompanied by a PHP1,500 protest filing fee addressed to the race director within 30 minutes of the completion of your race.  If the complaint or protest proved fruitful, your protest filing fee will be returned
10 Vehicular parking will be along the Bonifacio High Street parking area.  Participants with vehicles will be directed by the parking security force to the designated parking areas.  Absolutely NO PARKING along the stretch of 28th Street
11 Baggage area is provided for YOUR personal belongings and is situated near the starting line.  DO NOT DEPOSIT VALUABLES as organizers can not be responsible for losses.  Do not lose your number bibs, you will use it to claim your deposited baggage/s
12 FINALLY, it is of the best medical advise to STOP if you feel any discomfort, as there will be other races you can join in the future.  Do not push limits to the extreme.  Enjoy your run.  Good Luck!
