    Hi, i registered my father last Feb 1 (Tuesday) via online registration. How can we claim/receive the inclusive souvenir shirt and timing chip? It was not stated if it will be delivered to our mailing address or we should pick them up. Pls advise us, Thanks!

    Hi! We just registered online. I just noticed that the shirt sizes were not asked on the online form. Free size lang ba ang shirt? Or we can get our preferred sizes upon claiming?

    Thanks!

    We’re amateur runners and this will just be our second run. Can you tell us what we can expect from this run in terms of security, water stations, mobile first aid, etc.? Are you going to give out certificates, photos or something to show that we officially participated? Thanks!

    Hi! If we register at the stores, do we get the race packet already or they will all be released at ROX? Thanks.

    Jun said,

    Hi! The redemption center is too far (Taguig) and the time window is too narrow (Feb 23-25 are working days). Please set up other redemption centers (accessible by MRT or in any commercial centers — Araneta Center, Ortigas Center, or even near the People Power monument itself). Please, the place and time are so inconvenient. We’re already registered online earlier without these information. Thanks and more power!

      Hi Jun, It was decided that redemption of race packets be done in one area to avoid confusion and mistakes. I apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you.

      • 41

        Philip said,

        I agree that the redemption center is too far for a lot of people. And yes it would be nice if there are redemption centers set up in more accessible places. But then again, perhaps that’s part of the commitment to the cause for which the event was organized.
        It may sound cliché but if we think of the children who will be benefitting from the efforts we are making (apparently, part of what we paid for will be used to build classrooms), we would not feel the ‘inconvenience’.

      • 42

        Hi Philip. First of all thank you for registering for the run. Secondly, I would like to apologize for the inconvenience with regard to having the race packet redemption in one area. We hope to do better next time. We decided to have the redemption area in one place to avoid confusion and mistakes since some are registering on line and others in registration centers. I do hope for your patience and understanding.

        Rodel said,

        in case we won’t be able to claim the race packets on the specified dates, will we be able to claim them on the race day itself?

      • 44

        Hi Rodel, I hope you can claim at ROX Bonifacio High Street on Feb 23-25. We do not recommend claiming on race day. Thanks.

      • 45

        Jun said,

        I still wish you can set up a more accessible redemption center. If that is really impossible, can you at least allow us to redeem the packets on weekends? I am sure I am not the only one who works 8-5 and have to be home to take care of children. Thanks.

      • 46

        Hi Jun, I’m working on having Saturday Feb 26 also. i understand the concern. Thanks.

    randomtongues said,

    Yung registration fee, may kasama nang shirt, timing chip and donation? Kahit yung sa 5K? Sorry, naguluhan kasi ako sa format ng pagkakasulat nung reg fee kasi nasa tabi ng 10K yung about the timing chip, etc, so it looks like yung 10K lang yung may kasamang ganun. Thank you! 🙂

    I want to be part of this great endeavor thou I won’t be running physically coz I’m based in Davao. I already asked a friend based in Manila to register me thou. I’ve been joining several fun runs for a cause here in Davao. Surely this activity would go a long way. =)

    I went to Planet Sports at Virra Mall last Saturday to register me and my kids, the staff said they don’t know about the edsa run. Where are the actual registration centers for those who don’t want to register online?

    edongski said,

    is the souvenir shirt made of dry-fit material? when is the deadline of registration? can we register and claim the race kit on feb 23-25 at the same time at ROX if there are still available slots?

    • 62

      The souvenir shirt is not dry-fit. Deadline of registration could be this week. You’ll need to register first so we can encode your name first and assign race packet. Hope you understand. Thank you.

    so disappointing.. i registered online not knowing na ganyan kalayo ang kuhanan ng race packet and working days pa yung sched..

    sana man lang pede din kumuha sa race day itself. nde kasi kami pede umabsent sa work kasi kelangan naming magwork para may maitulong sa mga nangangailangan tulad nito.
