First of all, I would like to thank the Philippine Dental Association & Without Limits for giving me the opportunity to join the PDA: Pilipinas Darating Ako Fun Run last Sunday, February 19, 2012 @ Cuneta Astrodome, Pasay City.
I arrived at the venue 30 minutes before the gun start since i have to get the complimentary kit first from Without Limits (Thanks! :D) before the race. I joined the 10K category.
I was actually surprised with the number of participants, though most of them were students, it’s still a big number compare to some small races i have attended.
The race started on time at exactly 5:30am for the 10K. After Kikay Runner gave the warm up, the runners were off to race!
The race route was simple, from the starting line at Cuneta Astrodome, you just have to run to EDSA then go back, passing the starting line again, run up to Luneta and run back to the finish line.
I basically had a slow run with konting walk on water stations. I finished the 10K with the time of 1:07. My PR is 1:06. Sayang.
The registration fee is 400 pesos for all categories. With the current issues on registration fee increase, runners should’ve joined this race! The problem is some runners do not want to join small races, they want to join commercialized races tapos magrereklamo on reg fees. 😀
The hydration sponsor is Pocari sweat and their supply was enough for all the participants.
Marshalls and photographers were also all over the race route.
There was a baggage counter and i did not have a problem on depositing and claiming my bag.
Generally the race experience i had was great. I believe all the basic needs of runners were present and for me that alone makes a race great and successful.
Thank you PDA and Without Limits and Titanium Runner. 😀
