To be honest, I almost missed the chance to sign up for this race. Thinking since the event itself is scheduled in October that I had plenty of time, I wasn't fully aware that the registration period was expiring soon. Good thing I got reminded when adidas Philippines made the announcement that they will start to accept cash payments starting this week. Good news to those who doesn't own a credit or debit card

With RunRio leading the race organization, I will be expecting a totally different experience compared to last year especially with 14 water stations and 14 Powerade stations along the 21k route. I guess no more picking up of half-empty sports drink bottle in the curb. In addition, I can't wait to get my hands on that pretty finishers medal (definitely light-years away compared to the 'grade school'-inspired medal distributed last year)

Another unique feature of this race is that it will personalize our race bibs. Now that answers the question why we cannot get our race kit immediately. It is just a shame that the maximum characters is only limited to nine (9), at least in the registration process. Funny thing is that if you don't put any, adidas will use your full name instead. If that's the case then there shouldn't be any limitation at all

To seal the deal, adidas will be giving away a reusable and Eco-friendly tote bag. We will be receiving our KOTR 2011 singlet, race bib, timing device, and maps in this nifty little bag.  "So?", you may ask. It may not be a big deal but putting Mother Earth in mind is always a good thing. I hope that this transcends well to fellow runners when they dispose their water cups. 

See you all on October 23!
