Run for your life!!!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — levyang @ 1:46 am

This came in last night while I was browsing through my email.  Too bad, I already registered for the Miracle Run on 17 August 2008.  But for those of you who are still planning their races for August, you might want to consider this.  This race is organized once again by Popo and Thumbie Remigio.  

“Run for Your Life: Pass the Picture Based Health Warning Bill”

August 17, 2008 (Sunday), 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM, UP Campus.

 

The run event aims to raise public awareness on the Picture Based Health Warning Bill pending in the Senate and in the Congress, and also aims to generate mass-based support for the bill’s passage into law. The bill should be certified as a priority bill not only because we need to curb the tobacco epidemic, but also because, by September of 2008, the Philippines is bound to comply with its treaty obligation under the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), the first and only public health treaty in the world.

 

Registration fee: P250.00 inclusive of a race singlet and number.

  1. Hi Levy,

    Saw a couple of your post in some of the blogs I frequent, so I thought I’d visit. Nice blog, and nice to know that a couple local bloggers are triathletes (future reference if I ever get into triathlon :-)).

    Too bad about “Run for Your Life”, I would have wanted to run in that event if it didn’t conflict with MensHealth run event. MensHealth probably did a better job of promoting their event since more runner are aware of their event.

    Btw, just curious though, something I’ve been meaning to ask a triathlete if I meet one.
    #1 What facilities are in place in the likely chance that someone get cramps in the open water?
    #2 Let say you get flat tire during the race, is it a fix-it yourself kinda thing or are there support staff for such situations.

  2. Hi Gene,

    Thank you for visiting. You’ve got a nice blog as well. I think it’s great that a lot of runners are now blogging about their experiences. When Baldrunner comes back, he’ll be surprised with the number of bloggers hanging out at his booth🙂 About your questions:

    1. Rest assured that the organizers do prepare for such contingencies. It may be that a participant got cramps or may choose to quit in the middle of the swim. In such cases, there are kayaks roving around to pick up the swimmers. Should a swimmer need to rest, they can hang on to the buoy lines or the kayaks. But they should not use the same to propel forward.

    2. Yup, flat tires are a fix-it-yourself thing. Usually, a biker carries around tire levers and a spare tube anyway so it can be fixed on the spot. Fixing flats may be appear difficult at first but once you get the hang of it, it can be done within 5 to 10 minutes.

    Hope you try one of the triathlon races soon. Thanks again.
