Announcement about winning entries for RU 1 2014 Prepaid Card Raffle Promo

Be advised that you will have until 12:00 noon of Friday next week, February 28, 2014, to claim your RU1 2014 Prepaid Card prize. I will be raffling off again the unclaimed prize/s to the remaining non-winning entries that complied with the aforementioned mechanics and deadline. Please understand that a very significant number of runners are hoping to win in this raffle and wish to join the Run United 1 2014 event. Currently, I still have with me three unclaimed prepaid cards, 5K medium, 21K small and 21K medium.

Thank you!


RU1 2014 Raffle Draw Results!

Thanks for waiting, but I also apologize for the delay. Collating and sorting your responses is no joke and very tedious, haha! Sorry for those who didn’t get the mechanics right. Better luck next time. Double and multiple entries were deleted to give equal chances to other runners and RU patrons. Too bad also, I was off-line the whole day due to some network testing done in the office by our tech personnel. So now that I am online again, here are the much-awaited results. Electronic draws were conducted thru Research Randomizer (randomizer.org).

Run United 1 2014 Bloggers’ Night

Last February 3, 2014, the bloggers’ launch of Run United 1 2014 was very informative as Unilab Active Health (ULAH) and Runrio officials explained their innovative ways of delivering premium race to the country. It was held at 100 Miles Café at The Fort Strip, BGC – the newest venue for race event launches. Bloggers were awed as new singlet designs were presented to us. Lester Castillo, ULAH Sports Event & PR Executive, said that they are not targeting to deliver the best race but aims to integrate itself to the community by utilizing innovations in sports apparel and nutrition that runners can happily and contentedly use. He added that enthusiasts can integrate ULAH’s events to their regular sports calendar. Exceed Yourself – Citius, Altius, Fortius!

After Mr. Castillo’s delivery of his piece, Runrio president and running coach, Rio dela Cruz discussed his company’s new race registration system that will benefit both runners and his team. New payment systems thru prepaid and credit cards are now being utilized to complement the process. Initially, registering runner will need to buy prepaid card from selected stores or use his/her credit card to register for RU1 2014 and other future races of Runrio, then runner will input his/her pertinent details to the web-based system, including contact information. Registering for future events will be easier than before. Just by using your previously registered e-mail address, one need not to enter other details except for desired race category and singlet size, everything is already there and important updates and notifications regarding the race event is assured.

The launch concluded with the usual group picture taking with the organizer and race owner. They distributed some Unilab products and calendar as tokens to the attendees. (Please see related post here.)
