The new RunRio registration process started smoothly today at all registration venues for the Rexona Run 2010 race. Runners were able to finish with the paperless registration within the span of 5 minutes and went home with their race kits containing the D-Tag timing device, race bib, early bird singlet (in gold) and a Rexona Men Sport Defence aerosol.
But then these early bird registrants missed getting hold of the RunRio Membership Card. This card, which is to be given for free to all registrants of RunRio races, will be the main “instrument” that will be used for registration to future Runrio races. It aims for an easier, fuss-free registration wherein registrants will just present their membership card (bearing a unique membership number) and their choice of race distance to participate in. All of the other pertinent details will just be retrieved from the registration system’s database which the participant provided during the initial registration.
So how can runners/registrants get hold of their cards when there was none given when registration opened today? According to Coach Rio himself, supplier’s delivery of the membership cards did not reach the target opening date of registration but will be available by Thursday, the earliest or Friday, the latest.
Those who have registered today, June 28 and those who will do so by tomorrow until Wednesday, will have the option to (1) just have their cards delivered to them – i am assuming, delivery fees will have to be applied, OR (2) just leave either their mobile phone number or email address so that they will either be sent an SMS message or email notifying them that their cards are already available for pick-up at the center where they have registered.
Meanwhile, check back in a while to the RUNRIO site for the availability of the ONLINE registration facility.
