Earth Run 2012

Earth Run was a real good run! More or less 7,000 runners, that includes Team Titans participated the run for the benefit of GREENPEACE. Well nothing to complain about this race. It was a big improvement from last year in terms of hydration. This year's event is managed by ADEVENTS MANILA.

My unofficial time for the 16km race is 1:35.

Thoughts on the race:
  1. Very affordable race. Php 300 for 3k/5k/10k and Php 400 for 16k/21k. Php 50 discount for early registrants  from March 9 to April 1.
  2. Lots of water stations! - Ice cold water provided.
  3. Overflowing bananas.
  4. Finisher's medal for 16km and 21km runners.
  5. Loot bag containing avea papaya whitening soap, antifungal cream, toothpaste, mane 'n tail shampoo sachet, potato crisp chips
  6. Maynilad shower along the route.
  7. Nice singlet design.
  8. Lots of raffle items for runners.
Areas for Improvement:
  1. Distribution of wrong singlet sizing.
  2. Gunstart interval for each category.
  3. Kilometer marker.
Some photos from the event.

Podium Finishers! (1st placers)
I'd have to say that I have participated in events more pricey than this and is less organized, so, for the Php 350, it was all worth it!

Congrats to the organizers of Earth Run 2012! Very organized and very affordable. See you again next year!
