2nd Quezon City International Marathon (quick post)

click to enlarge... =)

(official time updated)

Also known as the QCIM 2, this is event has become one of the running events of the year that a runner shouldn’t miss. Though I really consider joining the Nike Run, a Runrio event on the same day only in BGC, I realized that it is much better to support a local government event than an advertising gimmickry hidden in a cause oriented purposes. But I don’t mind joining such as long as there are no conflicts and I would get my money’s worth. And since I’m not really a “runner” in its strictest sense, I always hope for a singlet in every running event I will join. But that’s just for my souvenir.

So how was the second edition of QCIM? It was a great day actually and the route is so much better than the many turns and crossings of BGC. It was a great time to set a personal record, which I did! Yay! But the cost for making one is an aching knee. I pray to recover ASAP. It’s a Monday tomorrow and I have an important meeting in the afternoon. Pray for me!

Anyway, here’s a run down of the event today.

Pretty credible result

Three days after the 4th Auto Review Run and the results are already available. Very commendable on the part of the organizers despite the non-use of any timing device for each runner. Or they have some kind of a scanner for the bar code in our bib numbers? Hmm, I couldn’t care more.

The result posted over at Pinoy Fitness showed that I finished 107th out of 743 5k runners. For a distance of 5 kilometers, I clocked in 30 minutes and 42 seconds. That’s faster than my record back in the Rexona Run but slightly slower than my estimated time in the Figaro Run. In case the hearsay is true that the 5k route is longer by 200 meters, I think I’m faster for all cases in this race.

Pretty credible result. It’s almost the same with my own estimate.

It’s just that there’s something wrong with it. The number of 5k runners are only 700 plus? I thought it was around a grand. Also, I am runner 5869 but my name isn’t Adrain Aquino, as indicated in the results. Further, I’m only 24 years old, not 27. Now the question, is that really my record or of somebody else? Rushed result? They could have taken the whole week to release a complete and proper result.

Anyway, I’ll own the record unless they release a revised one.

Oh, here are some pics taken after the event:

I always have a camera with me every time I join a run. I’m documenting everything…for this blog!

Results are out!

This just in!

Results for the Rexona Run 2010 are out and is posted over RunRio’s official site. Really fast! Time posted were based on the data gathered from the UHF RFID D-Tag by ChronoTrack Systems. Being my first 5k run, I am so ecstatic to find out how I performed and check my personal record. And here it is:

Gun time (time from the gun start to the time you crossed the finish line):

Rank (based on Gun time):

Chip time (time when you cross the start line to the finish line. This is for knowing one’s personal record):

In case you can't read, it says 31mins and 59 seconds.

My golly! It is a good record but there’s a lot to improve. I pray to do better on Adidas King of the Road… my planned 10k run.

I’m currently reading the comments regarding the event and everybody’s commending the organizers especially Coach Rio (of RunRio). I’m really so looking forward for the next run he will organize. I hope it won’t be that long.
