If you did, then you better check and you may have to register AGAIN .
Runrio posted the list of runners who had registered for Run United 2. I checked the list and, as I suspected, my name wasn’t there. So I travelled to Toby’s at SM Mall of Asia, showed them the card evidencing my pre-registration and payment, and proceeded to -re-enter my info. It’s irritating to say the least—not irritating to approach Claudine level—but irritating still. I asked the folks manning the Runrio station what had happened and they mentioned that the system got corrupted so customers have to re-input the information.
They were diligent to remind me to visit the Runrio expo on June 13, which is the exclusive date for the 21K runners, to get my race kit. I asked what happens if I couldn’t make it. They said that the expo runs from June 13 to 15 so I can drop by on any of those dates. I still feel it’s hard-selling and manipulative, like we are rodents being led by the Pied Piper. I wondered how the runners from outside Metro Manila feel, having the travel to fetch their race kit instead of it being delivered to their doorstep like before.
