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.

RU1 Prepaid Cards Raffle Promo results might be delayed…

Thank you to all the visitors who joined the raffle promo. 🙂 Responses are overwhelming, 684 in all! Entries that were posted beyond 7PM of February 16, 2014 are not included. I’ll try to finish the sorting/electronic drawing of entries and release the results tonight, otherwise, tomorrow. 😛

Important RU1 Announcement

Dear runners,

We understand that there is a demand for us to add more slots for the 21km category. We apologize that we cannot accommodate this request. We have reached the maximum number of 21km runners, and adding more slots would compromise the quality of the execution of the race. In order to guarantee the safety and enjoyment of all runners, we need to set a limit to the number of slots.
For the meantime, registration is ongoing for the 500m dash, 5km, and 10km categories.
We hope you understand. Thank you for your continued patronage of the Runrio Run United Trilogy.

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.)
