Php210 Per Kilometer You Ran?
“Running is free, racing is not.”
I really can’t imagine myself paying Php210 for every kilometer I ran but this is how one of the leading sports brands wants to do.
Okay, so let this blog be short and sweet.
I’m not against Runrio and I’m not against Adidas Philippines. I’m a supporter of Coach Rio and his races. I also buy Adidas shoes and apparels.
I write this because I’m kinda disturbed on how runners are reacting to every single race available in the country. Saying proudly, “Price is not an issue!” “We can afford it and we want it so what?”
But I know of some runners who would borrow money just to register to some races. How come?
And so I think that registering for a 5K race (however hyped it is) for Php1,050 is too much for me. It’s just me. I can’t imagine myself paying Php210/kilometer I ran.
If you can afford it, then go! Just be ready for the following years, I will not be surprised if we see a registration fee of Php3,000 or Php4,000. Well, Only time will tell.
So you have Php 1,050?
Option 1: Buy an Adidas singlet, hindi nyo pa po kapareho ang libo-libong runners na may KOTR singlet. May sukli pa po yung Php1,050 nyo. Takbuhin nyo yung route ng 5K sa BGC, i-time nyo po yung sarili nyo, pareho lang po yun.
Option 2: Register po kayo sa CamSur Marathon, Runrio race din po yan. Php850 lang ang marathon distance, 42K. May sukli pa po kayong Php200, dagdagan nyo po ng Php500 may pamasahe napo kayo papunta ng Naga.
