Takbo.ph Runfest 2014, Race report, race results, race photos and more

runningneverendsSo last Sunday was Runfest 2014 organized by Takbo.ph. It was held at the Bonifacio Global City and there were probably around 4K runners who joined the 5K, 10K and 21K categories of this race. Takbo.ph has bee doing this anniversary race for several years now but it was my first time to join.

To be honest, I wasn’t really expecting a lot from this race. I wasn’t even planning to set a new PR. I joined this race to make it as one of my LSDs before my 42K Milo Marathon run. Guess, what? I’m so glad I joined this race. I thought it would be the same route as other 21K. But there was some modifications and the result was a challenging 21K route for me.

First thing first, it was a relief to have Berwin Meiley hosting the pre-race program. It’s good to listen to somebody whose life (and body) was changed by running and not some good-looking model who probably can’t even finish a 3K run. Berwin’s anecdotes, remarks and kwentos were entertaining.

Anyway, the race started from BGC, and immediately after running for more than 1K, the route took us to the Kalayaan fly-over. Having run in this fly-over for a couple of times now, I didn’t really find it too challenging anymore. The turn-around point for the 21K was just before the PNR in Buendia. If my memory serves me right, we already finished around 9K at this point. Then the long way back to BGC begins. There were enough hydration stations with a 2km gap along the way. There were also a couple of banana stations. Medical ambulance were also on stand-by. In short, this was one organized running event.

The route in BGC took a detour that will take you to this side street near the American Cemetery. There was a short incline before the turn-around point. Going back you’ll be turning right going to SM Aura where another turn-around awaits you. Going back you’ll pass by the street where the finish line was located but it’s still not over. You’ll have to go straight towards Market Market and on to the C5 flyover going to Pasig. Yes, it’s the new fly-over. And yes again, the turn-around was at the bottom of this fly-over which means that you will have to run uphill for another 300-400 meters before finally going to the last stretch of the race. It was a surprise for me. I didn’t examine the race route and I was not expecting that the last stretch would be a killer one.

Fortunately, my uphill training in Antipolo helped me a lot. So I was not too exhausted climbing this steep road. In short I managed to cross the finish line still strong. Although I didn’t established a new PR, I’m still happy about my race time.
