Run United 1: Claiming of Race Packets at MOA

The long lines were a little bit daunting as i arrived at the Mall of Asia Activity Center at about half past noon yesterday to claim my RU1 Race Packet. The single line which snaked through more than half of the open area was about 150 meters long and at that moment, i was having second thoughts if i would still line-up and be among the crowd who would tough it out for the long wait!

Just as when i arrived…

One line and slowly moving

I saw co-bloggers of mine who i was with a few hours ago while attending Reebok’s new shoe line at the Glorietta in Makati huddled together as they were just waiting for a friend who was already lined up to get their packets for them. I asked other runners on how long they had been in line and said that they had been there for more than an hour already as the line was really moving at a snail’s pace.

The crowd gets bigger by the minute

The crowd by the time i left

Fortunately, i saw a good friend who was part of the organizing committee busy retrieving an entire running team’s individual packets and so i approached and asked him if he could just include my name on the team’s list. With a smirk on my friend’s face, he hesitantly agreed and in a few minutes, voila…my race envelope and a loot bag was already in my hands! Thanks buddy! You saved me an hour or two!

Race bib, visor, singlet and some small goodies

Had i thought of just returning today (Friday) or Saturday morning to retrieve the race packet, i know the more crowded it could get because of the week-end when many runners will be free from work or school!

So, two days to go and those running for this Sunday’s Run United 1 better get moving fast and claim their packets soon! The earlier, the better!
