It's going to be a crazy day...

I don't want to sound like a fortune-teller. But I think 05/10/2009 will be a crazy race day.

Have you seen the BOTAK PAA-TIBAYAN map? Specifically the routes for the 21k and 42k? Those are craaaaaaazzzzzyyyyyyy routes, man.

I hope that the race organizer has done their assignments real well. Marshalls should be well oriented. Water stops should be adequate & well manned. Medical facilities should be in place. Traffic should be, well... dealt with accordingly. Some people do work on a sunday. :)

And how about the weather? I don't know if "EMONG" has left the P.I., but this past weeks weather was craaaazzzzzyyyy. And according to CNN weather, it's going to rain tomorrow. Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

And last... I read from more than a couple of running groups that they'll go renegade on this race. And they are inviting people to join them. Craaaaaazzzzzzzzyyyy....

What I fear here is the cut-off time for the 42k runners. I don't know if there was a discussion about it. Because in the Condura Run, this was cleared at least a week before the race. I think I see a lot of complaints after this race though. =(

Will I run tomorrow even if it rains? It's a YES!

Will I run on the said routes? Maybe... :)

Will I go bandit? Hmmnnnn......


  1. im still hoping that it will rain. =)

  2. Nosebleed naman ako! hehehe... Good for us, we didn't reg for this event!

  3. CHELLY!!!korek... i guess i am going to stick with 1 official race per month. pwede naman tayo tumakbo ng tumakbo. hehehe

  4. This is one of the worst race ever! I wish I should have registered sa 5k nlang :(

  5. Rod, sorry to hear what happened to you and the runners yesterday. Lack of water cups and marshalls is not acceptible when runners are shelling out a good amount of money.

    Anyway, hope you ran well. Take care and have a good week ahead.

    We all learned from this, pare. That's why I now check who organizes the race, where the route is & who benefits from it.

  7. hi WAYNE
    luckily i didn't signed up for this race. i was suppose to go bandit & pace a first time 21k runner. i was late by 5 mins because i ran at least 2kms going to the starting line. good thing there were others who ran bandits and paced with him.

  8. Hahahaha ayos Rod dapat ikaw ung hinire ng Botak lol
