This has got to be the weirdest registration in all my races.
First of all, Per and I went to Anapolis yesterday to register but the lady manning the booth there said that her stocks had run out. But she did have some Condura Race forms (in case anyone hasn't registered yet for this race). So our next option would be ABS-CBN building in Quezon City. We didn't have time for it due to other errands that day.
Fortunately, two of my friends went to ABS-CBN this afternoon to register for themselves. It will be their first race so I was quite happy that they have decided to try this sport out. They offered to register for me and Per as well but here's the thing...
THERE ARE NO MORE RACE BIBS!
Huh ? That is really weird! So I texted Marina asking if registration is still open. She replied that it is, but you just won't get a race bib. HUH? She further texted that you will get a singlet but the size is just XS. GRRRRR ! Yeah, like that could fit me!
But what the hell, I still said yes to her to register for us and told Per about it, who was laughing the whole time! Not having a race number is like a basketball player who doesn't have a number at the back of his jersey or a race car with no number at its hood and front. This is sooo strange....
So no race bibs, singlets just at size XS, I wonder what else could go wrong here???
The photo above mentions time of 4AM. Marina texted that assembly time is at 5AM. When I asked what time will the race officially begin,
she replied that the people there who gave her the singlets do not know the answer and just kept saying 5AM assembly time !
So no race bibs, singlets at size XS, and up to now, no starting time!!
For Php 150 and even for a good cause, this Running Fatboy feels he OVERPAID for this race!
I think that this race will turn out to be quite disastrous come Sunday morning...
What do you think? Shall we give a benefit of a doubt to the organizers or shall I start packing my water belt with me?
One thing for sure, I will be very very interested in how this all turns out.
