  1. hi, you noted that payment mode can be of credit card…is that only meant for the online registration or is it also applicable to on site registration?

    thanks! 😀

  2. Cant share this via fb 😦

  3. sir can we request for a softcopy of the registration form so that one of us can go to manila for the registration, we are from tarlac city and we would like to join the run. there are 10 of us, we tried to register online but to no avail. thanks

    • Hello Lito! We do not have a registration form. What you can do is send a copy of your valid ID to your friend who will be coming over to Manila to register. As to your online registration problems, I would like to advise you to try accessing the site via a different connection/ISP. Me and my friend have also experienced online registration problems but was able to register online successfully when we used a different connection.

      But if you would like to just register in-store via a representative, that will be ok too. Just be sure to send a copy of your valid ID and give also the right information about your Race Tee size (kindly refer to the sizing chart). thanks!
