R3RUN for Sustainability

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Late post. This event actually held on the 3rd of August, but it took me more than a week to blog about it because I could not find decent photos of myself during the event. Either I looked too fat or I had my wacky face on, LOL.

R3RUN for Sustainability was held at the Blue Bay Walk in Pasay City. It was probably the most inexpensive event that I joined this year, only Php.250 for all categories (1k, 4k, 8k, and 12k). And then I got a Php.50 discount using my Pinoy Fitness membership card.

It was an easy, breezy run for me. I finished the 12k run with an official time of 1:24:47. Not bad for someone who has shin splints that weekend. Heh.

Overall, it was a good event considering that the organiser was a first timer when it comes to race events. There was ample hydration for everyone. The marshals were nice and friendly. The actual distance of the route was exact and at par with my GPS run tracker. The venue though was too small to accommodate a lot of people. It was too cramped and crowded, especially when the finishers were lining up to get their loot bags or claim their baggage. The organisers should have anticipated the large volume of participants because it was a very affordable race event. I do hope they choose a better and bigger venue next time. :)
