To be perfectly honest I was supposed to join the Rexona run at Moa which was also the same date as the Regent Run.
When I was informed Rexona cancelled their race and moved it to a later date. I scrambled and checked out the Takbo.ph website “ Race Calendar” I was “Desperately Hungry” for a Sunday Race. Come to think of it the entire Running Community did the same thing I did.
Luckily, The Regent Run had a race schedule on that date but the registrations was already closed and by the looks on the Takbo trend, Runners were hacking , selling and buying race bib. Left and right. Race Bib in the Regent Race has become a hot item which everyone wanted 1.
Luckily, I know the race director and organizer of the race and sent them a text …they reserved a race bib for me. ( Thanks Doc Lyndon and Jinoe G. ) for your kindness.
I’m glad that Rexona Run moved their race to a later date because the Regent Race was excellently organized and if I did miss this Race I would have missed 10% of my “Running things to do list”.
Asides from the usual great route, plenty of hydration, visible marshals, Screaming km markers and lots of photographers I notice they had several “ Clean up Group “. Men and women armed with brooms and trash bag ready to clean the race venue . Galing !
But most of all what I like about a LeadPack / Takbo.ph Race is the atmosphere. It feels like “Home”. I met some old friends, new friends and it felt heartwarming that a lot of Runners recognize my humble contributor to the running scene in the Philippines. Cry! Cry! Ha ha.
