2012 Timex Run – Time is Running

And finally, it is back! Everyone who have been running RunRio races since about three, four years ago, will know that the first edition of the Timex Run race in 2009 was practically the race that started it all! I can still vividly remember how everyone was in awe with that small LED screen which showed the animated version of the route. No this was not the one with the cartoon Rio running along the route map, this one was more of the snake-like bar moving along the course! Everything then seem to be simpler compared to now, but it is in this race wherein Rio slowly but surely included exciting race features that were not found on other races in Manila. And yes, it included that animated race route presentation prior to gunstart.

This race, which also served as the prelude to the very first every RunRio Trilogy, of course featured top-rated actor, Timex Ambassador/Image Model and aspiring triathlete – Piolo Pascual. After this race, the word “sub-Piolo” have been a running-community by-word for a 10km run PR (Piolo did run in the 1okm race category then).

Now that it is finally back, for sure, many will be anticipating if there will be a new sub-Piolo record in the offing or if there will be other surprises along the way. For sure, Piolo will not be doing th 10km anymore (He did complete 21km race already!). So it seems just so natural when Coach Rio told me that he will be doing the 16km race category for this event. One thing I failed to confirm though was if whether they will be running together again. But that one’s almost always a given, right? Well, enough of these blah, here now folks are the initial details for this event, RunRio’s second race offering for 2012!

  4. P650 to 750 ba ang in-store registration?
