Last 16 November 2008, a group of MASTERS runners conducted the 1st 10K MASTERS Run at Fort Bonifacio. I was not able to participate in that race but I was informed that the race was a success.
For this year, the Bald Runner’s Events is coming up with a longer distance run for the MASTERS which will cover a challenging 15 kilometers of paved roads.
As a starter, MASTERS are those runners from the age of 40 and above for the Men’s Category and for those 35 years old and above for the Women’s Category. The age categories will be grouped every 5 years of age, both for the Men’s and Women’s.
The 1st MASTERS 15K Run will be held inside Camp Aguinaldo on September 6, 2009. The race will start at 6:00 AM infront of the GHQ Grandstand. The race will cover two (2) loops of 7.5-kilometer loop inside the camp.
The registration fee is P 100.00 per runner. Our staff will start accepting registration to this race during the KR Urbanite Run this Saturday evening. Just look for the Bald Runner/Project Donate A Shoe Banner/Tarpaulin in one of the designated Parking Areas. Each runner must be able to bring their ID for verification of their printed Birth Date on their Card.
Race packets (race bib, rules & regulations, and map of the route) will be available for distribution starting on August 23 in any of the racing venues in Metro Manila.
There will be no singlets or Finisher’s T-shirts as the registration fee will defray the cost of race packets, water/hydration needs, trophies & medals, and Finisher’s Certificate which will be mailed to the runner’s address.
Since we do not have any “marketing people” or PR means to ask for sponsors for this race, this race will be a “no-frills” race but each runner will be assured of a safe race route & parking areas, a challenging but fast course, accurate course distance, lots of water, a race timer (sponsored by reinier6666), and more fun & running experience.
If there are “Good Samaritans” out there to support or sponsor this race, we will be glad to accept whatever help you can give to make this race a memorable one. Please feel free to post a comment on this post. Our staff could also be contacted at this landline telephone number—497-6442 for more details of this event.
To make this race something unique and for us to bring back the “good old times” of running in the late 70s and the 80s, “friends” of BR will be donating lots of beer for all the runners!!! Beer will be served at the Finish Line (and in the Aid Stations)!
See you at the Starting Line!!!
