4) For each registered runner, CamSur Gov. LRay Villafuerte will plant 10 trees!

AKTV Run FREE Race Kits – SLOTS Already TAKEN (Updated with List)

Hello All! Thank you for your overwhelming response to my free race kits promo published in this blog last Saturday, May 28 (click HERE to see what I am talking about). I am supposed to give out only 30 race kits but was so overwhelmed by all you who have tried their luck and sent their details via email.

Because of this, I will be giving each email sender a race kit of their preferred race category WHETHER OR NOT THEY WERE IN THE TOP 30. Meaning, everyone who sent me an email from May 28 until 11:59PM tonight (May 30) will receive their free race kit. 🙂 Please note though that I have removed duplicate emails or duplicate details in the emails so that each person will only get one race kit (fair enough huh!).

So how do you folks get to claim your race kits? Just go to the registration area of Runrio, Inc. at the R.O.X. store in Bonifacio High Street starting Thursday, June 2 and present your ID upon claiming. When claiming via a representative, kindly provide an authorization letter and an ID to facilitate fuzz-free race kit claiming.

Download this LIST to see if you are among those who will be given free kits.

Congratulations and see you all on race day! 🙂

Feeling Active, Feeling Lucky? 30 AKTV RUN Kits Up for Grabs for FREE!

Sometime ago, I was fortunate to be able to share my blessings of free kits to those who are yet to be immersed in this leisurely sport called running. I am, up to now happy to note that I was part of some people’s first race and that it was this very first race which triggered their foray into an active lifestyle.

And now, again you read it right! I will be giving away 30 race kits (race category of your choice) for the AKTV RUN event which is set to happen on Sunday, June 5 at the SM Mall of Asia grounds. Hopefully through this, I will again be able to encourage a number of you to truly embrace running as a means to an active lifestyle.

So what does anyone who is interested has to do? Oh very simple! I won’t ask everyone to subscribe to my site in exchange for something.  And don’t worry, this time I won’t be asking you to answer any question and then raffle off the kits. For this promo, one just has to send me an email at with the following details:

Last name
First name
Race Category
Birthday (mm/dd/yy)
Singlet Size
Emergency contact person
Emergency contact #

But in the spirit of order and fairness, I will have to set some rules for everyone to follow:

– one (1) email = one (1) free kit only. if you want to get more than one free kit, you will have to send separate emails for each.
– only those with complete information will be eligible for the free kit
– the first 30 emails who complied/followed the above rules set will be the ones to receive the free kits
– those who will be counted as the lucky 30 will receive an email on how they will be able to claim their free kit
– emails will be accepted only until 11:59PM of Monday, May 30. All emails received after this will not be eligible to receive a free kit
– the 30 slots for this free kit may be filled-up even before Monday, May 30.

Another note though, please ensure that those who will be emailing to get a chance to be among the lucky 30 will have to agree and ensure, through sheer honesty, that the kit he or she will receive will really be used come race day. This is again, to be fair to everyone especially to those who won’t be as lucky but are surely going to use it if given the chance. Anyone who will not honor this agreement will not be anymore eligible to join any of my free kit blog promos in the future. How will I know? Of course, I have access to race results too. 🙂

So, here goes! Good luck everyone! 😉
