Got official news that the registration for Run United 1 is officially CLOSED. Though I did not participate in last year’s race (as I was out of the country), I heard that the Runrio Trilogy was a sellout. True enough, I also wasn’t able to register myself for this year’s Leg 1.
Here is the official announcement from Runrio:
RUNRIO TRILOGY 2011 LEG 1 – RUN UNITED 1 REGISTRATION UPDATE
Thank you for your overwhelming response to and support of the first leg of the Runrio Trilogy 2011 – Unilab’s Run United 1. For everybody’s guidance, here is the updated registration status per category:
|RACE CATEGORY||REGISTRATION STATUS|
With this development, we officially announce that the Runrio Trilogy Leg 1 – Run United 1 REGISTRATION is now OFFICIALLY CLOSED.
It gladdens us no end to note that this race was able to set a record in terms of registration turn-out, with slots being sold-out in just a span of three weeks (registration opened last January 31,2011), but it also saddens us that there were still a lot of runners who were not able to sign-up for this race. In fact, we continously receive requests (oh and sometimes, demands!) for slots to be added for the 5km, 10km and 21km categories.
Unfortunately for reasons mainly of safety and security (among other reasons), we regret to inform you that both Unilab and Runrio have agreed to be firm in its decision of keeping to the planned maximum target number of participants.
You might want to consider registering for other upcoming Runrio-organized races such as the Women’s Health – Athena All Women’s Run (March 19) or the AACE The G.O.O.D. Run (April 3) instead.
We would also like to encourage you to look forward to the Leg 2 of this year’s Runrio Trilogy, the details of which we will be announcing soon. On a happier note, we have taken into consideration your requests and as such we look forward to accomodating more runners in Leg 2 by increasing the number of available slots/target participants.
Again we give our sincerest thanks to all of you for your unending support to Runrio-organized races.
See you all on March 6!
