Ready for Run United this coming Sunday, March 4, 2012? Here are updates about the race from RunRio, its race organizer:
1. Starting gun
The gun start for the 21k category was adjusted to an earlier time from 5am to 430am . We are allowing a maximum grace period of 30 minutes to allow participants to start. Hence, by 5:01am,the starting line will be closed to all runners. This is due to the limited time that the race organizer has been allowed to have the race route closed to traffic. We hope you understand that this is for every one’s safety and security.
2. Free shuttle services
We are providing free shuttle services for all 21k runners from MOA to BGC starting at 230am. This service will be available at 15 minute intervals until the last trip scheduled at 330am. After 3:30am, the next shuttle service to BGC will only be available starting 630am, at 15 minute intervals, with last trip scheduled at 930am. No shuttle services will be provided after 930am.
Designated pick-up point: OCEAN DRIVE (in between ECOM Bldg and Blk12) at Mall of Asia complex
Drop off point: In front of RIOVANA STORE in Fort – BGC
Runners are are recommended to plan their transportation in advance given these developments.
3. Baggage Counter
21k runners may leave their bags at any of the two designated Baggage Buses parked along the 9th Avenue near the Gun Start area in Fort BGC from 2:30am until 5am only. After the race,you may claim your items from the same bus at OCEAN DRIVE (in between ECOM Bldg and Blk 12) at Mall of Asia. Participants are strongly advised not to leave any valuables in their bags.
