The Run Rio Team through it’s Corporate Social Responsibility arm is bringing to us runners an equivalent of P1 airlines local travel fare, the Sin Tax Run 2012.  It is not free, but a measly P16 peso fee is almost as good.  After all the registration fee is more of symbolic than monetary.

Coach Rio dela Cruz himself gave us the rundown of everything we need to know regarding this event at the Bloggers Event held last night at Kabisera Restaurant, 7th Avenue, BHS, Bonifacio Global City.

The very first question bugging me though is how come the registration fee is P16?  How did they come up with this amount in particular?  Why not like P20 or totally free altogether?  The answer is in the following picture.

Why P16? Well, why not!

The one that captured my attention the most, not that I am a candidate or even capable of attaining, is the cash prize which is staggering by any local standard.  Take note also that there is a separate set for local and foreign runners.  Elite kababayans will be most pleased.  Run Rio heeds how local athletes will greatly benefit from such categorization and the corresponding opportunity it brings they most deserve.

Kung mabilis lang sana ako!

There will be no singlet for this event.  Hopefully with  the super low registration fee, there will be nobody asking for such!  Despite this, a special bib number will be provided (with timing chips!) plus a commemorative visor!  Nobody will come home with nothing to remember this event by after all.

All interested runners can go to these registration sites provided for your convenience:

The event will be a 6K super fun run around the MOA area.  Here are the essential details come race day:

Please bring own hydration bottles and/or belts to minimize clutter and be of help to the environment.  Hydration stations will be provided though.  Only water will be served.

Wag nang choosy, join na!
