Review: BDM 160 & 102 Ultras’ Rules & Regulations


Rule # 1: “Cheaters” Are Automatically Disqualified
As a Race Director & Runner-Competitor in the 1st BDM 102, I was a witness to cases of cheating acts of runners during the race. I know these runners but I have not exposed them in my report/blog but for the succeeding editions of this race, I will be more strict on this rule & regulation. Hence, this is the most important Rule of this Race.

If there is a single doubt or information that a runner had cheated during the race, the runner will be immediately disqualified and removed from the race. Henceforth, the runner will be permanently banned to join/participate in this race, even as a driver, support crew or volunteer.
Cheaters will be exposed in my blog @ Bald Runner and at the official website of Bataan 102.
Let us maintain the Integrity of this race.

Rule # 2: Every Runner Must Have A Support Vehicle
Every runner in the race must have his/her dedicated support vehicle. The support vehicle must be a Car, MiniVan, SUV, or pick-up Car. However, for those who do not have the resources to rent a vehicle or have their own, we will allow two runners up to three runners for a single support vehicle or Van.

One runner could not exceed one vehicle as his/her support vehicle.

Runner should submit to the Secretariat the Vehicle Brand, Model, Color, and Plate Number.

We will not allow two-tired vehicles, like motorcycles and bicycles as support vehicles.

The support vehicles MUST “leapfrog” the runner at all times. The driver of the support vehicle must see to it that the vehicle must “leapfrog” at least one kilometer or more in length ahead of the runner. Runners may not be “shadowed” (driving a vehicle at the runner’s speed) and vehicles must not “caravan” (drive together, like a train, at any speed). Driving may never be at the speed of the runner. Driving must be done at the speed of traffic, never slowing down to encourage, talk to, or lend assistance to any runner while moving. All assistance must be provided by pedestrian crew members; handing off supplies from the moving vehicle is never allowed.

Vehicles must be parked completely off the road surface whenever they are stopped. WHEN STOPPING/PARKING, VEHICLES MAY NOT STOP ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE ROAD. ALL STOPPING/PARKING MUST BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD, OFF THE ROADWAY.

All support vehicles must have their headlights ON whenever the engine is running and throughout the route during the race.

The Race Director will provide the appropriate signages for the support vehicle stating “CAUTION: RUNNERS ON ROAD/RACE IN PROGRESS”. Runner should also print his/her Race Bib Number in one of the corners of this tarp. This tarpaulin signage should never be removed from the vehicle at any time during the race.

Rule # 3: Runners Must Stay On Left Side Of The Road
Runners MUST run on the far left side of the road or off the left side of the road, facing the incoming traffic. If the road has a “shoulder”, the runner should be running on the left edge of the said road “shoulder”.

Running MUST always be on SINGLE FILE.

Runners must progress under their own power without drafting, helping, pushing, supporting, or any type of physical assistance.

Runners may not use walking sticks, ski poles, or the like. So-called “cooling vests” or other types of artificial/technological cooling system may not be worn or utilized by runners while making forward progress on the race course.

Runners may not carry an Umbrella or allowed to be shaded with a Cover by a Support Crew.

Rule # 4: Pacer Is Not Allowed During The Race
Every runner will NOT be allowed to have any Pacer during the Race. (For BDM 102)

If two competing runners would pace each other, the other runner is either on the front, back, or far left side of the runner.

Rule # 5: Runner MUST Submit Medical Certificate
All qualified runners must submit their Medical Certificate taken at least three (3) months before Race Day.

NO MEDICAL CERTIFICATE, NO RUN

Rule # 6: Runners Shall Ask Permission To Display Corporate Sponsors
If a runner-participant is being sponsored by a corporate entity, no corporate logo or symbol shall be displayed on the runner’s support vehicle or apparel without the permission of the Race Director. A written request for permission is a must.

However, a runner-participant is allowed to display the name of his/her running club only, whether in his/her apparel and/or the designated support vehicle. A Runner-Participant is allowed to use his/her Running Club’s Uniform.

Support Crew is also not allowed to display corporate logo of his/her runner’s sponsor without the approval of the Race Director.

Display of Corporate Logo as Sponsors of Individual Runner without Permission from the Race Director will outrightly disqualify the runner.

Rule # 7: Only One Support Crew for Each Runner
Only one (1) support crew is allowed to be dedicated for every runner-participant in the race. The duty of the support crew is to hand in or give to the runner the necessary drinks, food, sponge, water, or any part of the runner’s apparel if in case he/she needs to change during the race.

The support crew will not pace with the runner. His duty is simply to give any item needed by the runner.

Support crew must take extra care and vigilance when crossing the road from the right side of the road where the support vehicle is parked to the left side of the road.

Support crew will also make sure that littering of waste along the route is not allowed.

Rule # 8: Cut-Off Time Is 18 Hours For BDM 102; 30 Hours For BDM 160
BDM 102 was initially planned to have a cut-off time of 15 hours. However, due to the hot weather and humidity in the country during the summer months, I gave an additional 3 hours so that more runners would be able to finish the race. On the other hand, BDM 160 has a cut-off time of 30 hours.

Anybody who is still on the road after the cut-off time will be considered as DNF (Did Not Finish). Runners who DNFed will be picked-up by our Official Vehicles or Ambulances along the route and they will be brought to the Finish Line.

Cut-Off Time @ BDM Kilometer Post #50: Nine (9) Hours (For BDM 102 & 160)

Cut-Off Time @ BDM Kilometer Post #102: Eighteen (18) Hours (For BDM 160)

Rule # 9: Race Bib Should Be Visible Always
The runner’s Race Bib/Race Number should be visible always during the race. The runner has the option to wear the Race Bib on the front portion of the body by pinning it on the race singlet or running shorts. It can be attached to a “fuel belt” provided it should not be covered by the runner’s shirt or singlet.

Rule # 10: Time Stations, Instead of Aid Station
At designated points, there will be TIME STATIONS along the race route. The said stations will be manned by Race Marshals who will take note of the runner’s arrival time at the said point.
The runner’s order of arrival in the said time station will also be recorded.

Non-appearance and/or no record on the time of arrival would mean disqualification from the race.

Rule # 11: Media Broadcast & Coverage
There will be no TV, film, or video crew, person, producer, director or other broadcast media representative may accompany or cover any runner-participant or the race itself without the specific written permission of the Race Organizer/Race Director.

Rule # 12: Leaving the Course Or Withdrawing
Every inch of the race course must be travelled (run & walk) by each runner-participant. In the event of a routing error, wrong turn, the runner may be driven back to the exact original spot where he/she left the course and continue running from that location. There will be no allowance made for lost time or kilometers run in the wrong direction.

If a runner-participant needs to leave the course, his/her crew must take note of the exact location where he/she left and make sure that the runner should resume the race from the said place or point. Runners may only leave the course for appropriate reasons such as rest or medical attention.

Runners are no longer allowed to leave the race course to eat in commercial establishments or fast food stores. If runners intend to eat the food from these fast food stores or commercial establishment, they have to instruct their crew to buy the item for them and have the food given along the race route.

If a runner withdraws or drops from the race, he/she or his/her crew must contact the Race Director or Race Marshals in the nearest Time Station immediately. The name of the runner, reason for withdrawal, time of withdrawal. and number of kilometers completed must be stated. Contact Number: 0918-965-9895. Violation of this Rule will be a ground for being banned in future BDM Races.

All runners and crew who drop are encouraged, and expected, to proceed to the finish line and join BDM post-race events (BDM Awarding Ceremony) to greet and celebrate with their fellow runners and crews.

Rule # 13: Medical Issues
All runners must be willing to submit to a drug urine test before, during, or after the race. If any banned substances are detected, the runner will be disqualified from the competition and listed as DISQUALIFIED FOR DOPING in the final standing of the race.

Crew members may not use illegal drugs, stimulants, or dope, as well as alcohol of any kind, during the race or at any official race events or activities.

I.V.s (intravenous fluids) are not permitted during the race. If a runner receives an I.V. during the race, for any reason, then that runner is disqualified and must withdraw from the race and the race course.

Rule #14: Runners shall wear appropriate attire for the event. “Half-Naked” running among the men will NOT be allowed.

Rule #15: iPods, MP3s, Cellphones playing music, and Headphones are strictly NOT allowed during the race.

Reminders:
Reflectorized Vest & Flashlight/Headlight (Mandatory)
Runners who will participate in the BDM Races are encouraged to wear a reflective vest or wear a running apparel with reflectorized markings or tapes during the early part of the race until sunrise or during nighttime.

Runners also encouraged to carry with them flashlight or wear headlight from the start up to sunrise.

For the BDM 102, the route on the first half will be dark as there are portions with no lights or lamp posts along the road.

Find time to “test” your “reflectorized” apparel/vest, flashlight, or headlight during your night runs.

Bring extra batteries for the flashlight/headlight during race day.

First Aid Kits:
Runners are advised to bring their own First Aid Kits just in case of any emergency during the race. First Aid Kits should include bandages, alcohol, cotton, betadine, neosporin ointment, petroleum jelly, immodium/diatab tablets, pain reliever, adhesive tape to secure dressings, scissors, and disposable towels. A safety pin could be the best runner’s tool in case of blisters.

*Note: BDM 160 runners must have their mandatory PACER from BDM Km Post #102 up to the FINISH LINE.

**Note: It is the RESPONSIBILITY of the RUNNER to inform his/her Support Crew & Driver on The Rules & Regulations of the Event. If a Driver or Support Crew violates any of the stated Rules & Regulations, the Runner will be automatically DISQUALIFIED.

***Note: Runners, Support Crew and/or Drivers are DEPUTIZED to report any infraction/violation of the Rules & Regulations during the race.

The Road To The 2013 BDM 102 & 160


The deadline in the submission of application to join this race is strictly enforced. For those who were not able to beat the deadline (Midnight of June 15, 2012),  they will not be considered to be invited to join the event.

We have reached more than the allowable limit we have set for the number of runners in this event. As of the deadline, there are 267 runner-applicants for the BDM 102 and another 110 runner-applicants for the BDM 160. Those who have finished a Trail Marathon and Ultra Marathon Events (without finishing a Marathon Road Race) will be considered for the screening process. Definitely, those who have yet to experience finishing an official full Marathon Race will not be considered and invited to join this race.

For the proper implimentation of safety and security for all the participants, we have set a limit of 200 runners for the BDM 102 and a maximum limit of 100 runners for the BDM 160, except for the additional slots reserved for the members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police and other security/armed services of the government..

If my proposal to the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), Philippine National Police (PNP), Philippine Coast Guard and to the other Armed/Security Services of the Government to include the BDM 102 in their “AFP-PNP Olympics” Competition will be approved, we have to allow at least 50 additional slots for this race. There will be NO competition among the Armed Services in the BDM 160.

Letters of Invitation will be sent to qualified applicants thru e-mail and/or Facebook starting tomorrow, June 20, 2012. All invited runners should follow the instructions stated therein. These are very simple instructions to follow.

Good luck and train well.

2013 BDM 102 Finisher’s Medals


Starting on next year’s 5th edition of the Bataan Death March 102 Ultra Marathon Race, Finisher’s Medals will have a distinction based on the Official Finish Time of each runner-finisher. The Finisher’s Medals will be categorized into GOLD, SILVER, and BRONZE.

2012 BDM 102: Race Report By Peter Kennedy


Decision to Run

Back in September I wasn’t seeing any improvements in my 5 km/10 km times even though after three years in the Philippines I was fully acclimatised and my mileage was up at the 70 km level per week.  I knew I was leaving the Philippines in March and when I heard about the BDM 102 I thought that it would make a suitable climax to my running in the Philippines.

Race Preparation – Endurance and Speed

I wanted to do my best I could in the race, even though it was my first ever and possibly only ultra-marathon.  So I looked round for both a running coach and a nutrition coach.  I needed coaches who knew how to train someone for top-class ultra-marathon running and in Ige Lopez I found someone who is both an experienced ultra-marathon runner and coach.  He put me on a training schedule in three parts – 7 week build-up towards 100 km/week, 10 weeks of endurance/speed training which peaked at 160 km/week (including warm-up runs), and then one month tapering before the race.  The training was very varied – long slow runs at weekends reaching back-to-back 75/25 km runs, moderate-paced runs up to 21 km, sometimes with hill sessions or fast intervals, aerobic-paced runs on alternate weekdays and one rest day a week.  I was fortunate to avoid any injuries in training.  However if I had experienced the BDM course before the race, I would have realised that I needed to do a lot more hill work (Ige did hint this to me), but work and family commitments would have got in the way.  The highlight of this training was a 3 hours 20 minutes marathon in December.  The lowlight of the training were forgetting to take my hydration pack on one of my trips abroad, which disrupted the nutrition plan for my 60 km training run.

Nutrition

My nutrition coach Harvie de Baron was excited to take on the challenge of helping me with the BDM 102.  He has advised good athletes and those trying to lose weight before, but not someone doing an ultra-marathon who can’t gain weight.  In fact after a few weeks of additional healthy snacks (fruit, sports bars and milk) I gained 2 kilos which converted to additional muscle whilst my fat content remained very low at 5%.  This can be explained by my high metabolic rate, equivalent to that of a 12 year old!  The plan for the race was to get all my calories through liquid rather than food.  I opted for wearing a hydration backpack and taking frequent sips of isotonic drink, with short stops every ten km for an energy gel and extra water.  We slightly increased the concentration of isotonic drink to enable me to get 260 calories/hour.  I could also carry a phone, torch and spare headlamp in the hydration pack and I got used to carrying all this weight on my training runs.  Other key ingredients of the training were a protein recovery drink after all long runs and a weekly massage.

Gear

I decided to race in compression shorts and vest, much as the triathletes do, which avoided any chafing problems.  My GPS watch was essential to my training and the race itself, but I wore a second basic running watch as a backup just in case it failed me.

Life outside running

During the five and half months of ultra marathon training there wasn’t much of a life other than running and sleeping.  Moreover the demands of work as well as the training meant I often didn’t get enough sleep – but not starting work until the afternoon most days allowed me to catch up with sleep after the early morning runs.

The Race itself

The gun went off promptly at 10:15 pm.  I immediately joined the leading group and was running comfortably at 4:30 mins/km pace!  I knew I had to slow down but somehow I kept up my pace on the long hill and even went into the lead for a few kilometres.  I arrived at my first drink refill stop after 12 km, five minutes ahead of schedule.  I knew then I blown the negative split strategy and it could lead to serious problems before the end of the race.   So after continuing quite fast downhill for the next ten kilometres, I eased back the pace considerably.  I got a bad shock when the 22 km marker for my next drink stop wasn’t in sight after 25 km and I lost five minutes making a phone call to the support team.  Jonnifer Lacanlale, the eventual winner, passed me at this point but I didn’t try to catch him.

All my drink stops every ten kilometres were under three minutes – the time it took me to swap drink packs on my back, and take an energy gel plus water, giving a total of 25 minutes of stops, which is probably less than most runners, even the other fast ones.  At the 42 km drink stop, I vomited due to the volume of liquid I was drinking but I was prepared for this – I just took another drink of water and set off without any delay.

Running in the dark went well – it was not too hot; there was a full moon and there was a wide edge to the road so that I could easily dodge any oncoming trucks/buses that didn’t move out when approaching me.  The only near-miss occurred when a bus coming fast from behind on the wrong side of the road passed within two feet of me but most likely the driver had seen me because of my reflective strips.  This year there were no accidents in the race.

After 52 km I slowed down to below 6 mins/km and thereafter the pace was closer to 6:30 mins/km.  Each ten kilometres seemed never-ending because I could see from my watch how slowly I was running, but I kept focussed.  I had been due to change shoes and socks after 52 or 62 km, but I abandoned this idea since I didn’t feel any problems with my feet, which turned out well since the third place runner was only five minutes behind me at the finish.

After the half-way point, I was followed closely by another runner.  However at 82 kilometres he only walked on whilst I changed drink packs and then when I passed him again he dropped out of sight.  I heard afterwards that he finished in 15 hours which meant that he spent more than 6 hours on those last 15 kilometres which is a horrendous consequence of his going too fast at the beginning.

When dawn came I had reached 75 km, but I didn’t notice the heat until the last 10 km when I was running the very long straight road from Guagua to the finish.  At this point I couldn’t see anyone behind me and my final 10 km was done comfortably at 7:06 mins/km pace.  I crossed the finish line at precisely 9 am in a time of 10:44:56, which is an average running pace of 6:02 mins/km, and second place!

So the endurance training was a success but my pacing was a failure.  It was clear from my times in training that I could hope to run at 5:30 mins/km pace for the BDM, which when stops are added, would be a net 5:50 mins/km pace – within the course record.  I was well prepared for this, including many moderate pace runs at 4:30-5:00 mins/km and good practice at running negative splits.  Such times on largely flat roads probably gave me false hopes and the over-confidence in my speed that tapering brings plus the effect of running steeply uphill until 10 km was too much and I failed to follow my own race plan.

My overall liquid consumption was 150 ml/hour less than planned which is understandable in a night-time run.  This meant I only took in 220 calories/hour on average, which probably contributed to my slowing down in the second half of the race.  I didn’t make this risk clear to my support crew and so I never used the contingency plan of taking an energy gel every five kilometres instead of every ten to compensate.

Even if I hadn’t run too quickly at the beginning and everything else had gone according to plan, I am not sure I could have matched Jonnifer’s time without doing as much hill training as he did.

I very much appreciated the efforts of my support crew: my wife, our driver and one extra driver.  They ensured that I never missed them at a stop, checked I was crossing the road safely every time, re-filled my hydration packs in between stops, kept the stops to a minimum time and all this meant that they didn’t get any sleep either.

Reflections afterwards

Why did I do it? Were the long hours of training worthwhile? What’s next?

I run because it is easy to do and I am built for it, even though having the right running gear makes it an expensive sport.  I like the competitive nature of races and the thought of winning is a great spur for me to action.  I like the health benefits it brings – very high fitness level even at the age of 60, with not a day off work through illness in the last 10 years.  With no weight problems I can eat and drink what I like within reason.  Running also gives me extra energy for work which brings its own rewards as well.  So I see myself continuing to run for many years yet, competing against the world’s best runners in my age group.  The change from middle-distance running on the track in England to an ultra-marathon in the Philippines has been very enjoyable and I intend to vary my competitive programme going forward with a different focus some years to others.

I hope this account inspires more people of any age to change their lifestyle to include exercise and good diet and others to extend their running beyond the fun-run level right up to the challenge of doing a fast ultra-marathon.
