2009 Men’s Health Urbanathlon
I participated in the 2009 Men’s Health Urbanathlon at McKinley Hill today, November 22, 2009. I ran 10 kms with a clock time of 1’36”, actual time at 58″. I was late once again.
I enjoyed the race. This is what races should be all about. Fees should be lower than P500 with respectable amount of freebies and average level of commercialism.
Personally I don’t run for freebies, so I don’t mind not receiving a singlet as long as you can keep the costs down. I really appreciate though that they give the shirts only after completion. It makes getting that particular shirt worth it. But then again, this is business for some people. I should understand, I’m a marketing guy and if chances allow, I’d have our company sponsor a similar event real soon. I just hope though that people should run for the right reasons. Until next year.
