  1. Francis says

    The Earth Run last year was the dirtiest & one of the more unorganized fun runs of the year. I hope the organizers of this year’s run is different. This is for mother earth for crying out loud! Make it organized please. It is already an expensive run. Make it worth our (the runners) while.

    • DK says

      I agree with Francis. I attended last year it hoping for the best. What happened was quite the opposite of what we were runnning for.

  2. says

    Will runners bring their own refillable water bottles? This is an Earth run – better if no cups are used on hydration stations. :)

  3. faithyperry says

    haaayy… I’ve emailed the secretariat of Natgeo pero wala naamng sumasagot sa email ko. 3 beses na. I was also asking kung kelan madedeliver yung racekit.

  4. eight says

    suggestion NATGEo.. provide kau finishers medal sa 10k and 21k category.. para mabalik din sa mga runners yung fee nila.. maganda to dahil para kay mother earth to.. i will join this one..

  5. jeizon09 says

    Sana i move yung gunstart to at least 4:30am sobrang init na yung 7am ngayon kahit best effort di ko pa kakayanin tumakbo ng 21k in under 2 hours pano pa kaya yung sa iba that takes more than 3 hours XD

  6. angel ito says

    Good am sir/ma’am. I’m just asking if there’s a Finishers shirt and medal for 21K? Just to give back the feelingto the runners/frustrated runners like us. Hope you can provide that thanks.

  7. says

    Sir/mam any infos po ba about finisher medal kahit sa mga 21k. I know na para sa Mother earth yung run pero atleast para mabalik yung pagod mo sa pagtakbo pagkakita mo sa medal :”>

  8. cox says

    talaga bang run for mother earth ito? the way i see it, commerialized ito sa mahal ng registration fee. opinyon ko lang yun. pero kung yung buong reg fee ng mga runner ay ipambibili ng mga tree eh run for a cause yan. opinyon ko lang ulit yun. “maging mapanuri, mapagmatyag, mapangahas.eto po si kuya kit” – cox-matanglawin

  9. hapeeism says

    I registered online last March 16. I sent an email and haven’t heard from them. Until now, I have no idea when the race kit be delivered.

  10. eight says

    NatGEo try to listen sa mga runners na nagbabalak tumakbo para sa inang kalikasan.. a finishers medal is a plus.. finishers medal kahit sa 21k runners.. planning to register pero bago pa man un..hintayin ko muna feedback kung mbbigyan tau ng medal sa lahat ng tatakbo ng 21k..

  11. charmie says

    is there any other website where I can register online? i’ve tried several times already and after i’m done accomplishing the personal info page and i click on the next button, i am always re-directed to the NatGeo page.

  12. ram says

    Question(s): 1.)What are the measurements of the singlet and finisher’s shirt for 21k run?
    2.)It is possible to select a large size singlet and choose the medium size finisher’s shirt after the run?lastly,
    3.)is the delivery address will be the same address submitted in personal info during the registration online? if yes,would it be possible to choose an address aside from the submitted personal info?

  13. run21k says

    Interesting, Hindi sinasagot Ang mga inquiries ng runners Nakakapag dalawang Isip mag register dito. Isip Isip muna. Bka biglang may sumulpot na katapat ito. Some runners alam sinasabi ko. Organizers Baka gusto nyo sumagot?

  14. ezra says

    This is my 3rd nat geo run…. 2 of my last run was in 3km category. This year I will run for 10km….

    This is it!!!!

  15. faithy perry says

    ay naku, nagsisisi talaga ako na nagregister ako online! Til now wala pa rin yung singlet ko. Eh to think na March 18, 2013 pa ako nagregister.

    Ang nakakaloka pa, it took them 7 days to reply to my inquiry at sinabi na hindi raw ako registered! Ano kaya yun di ba? Eh nadebit na yun sa account ko eh. Nakakaimbyerna talaga.

    Mabuti pa ang Hyundai Funrun,mas maayos.

  16. Ariel_Fabella says

    Just went to the Greenbelt 3 registration kiosk this morning. Sadly no more singlet size L, XL. And to add up to the frustration, no assurance that you can still get those sizes even if you register.

  17. MultongGwapo says

    Organizers, takbo.ph already helped you to promote this program. The least you can do is to monitor the queries regularly and provide feedback especially sa mga nakapagbayad na. Pasintabi na lang pero parang ginagamit na lang kasi ang mother nature para makalikom ng funds eh.

  18. new :) says

    sana my medal naman for those who join sa 21k ang laki kc ng bayad tapos wla naman medal buti pa ung ibang fun run meron.

  19. NOEL says

    Please note that this race will provide refillable water bottles instead of disposable plastic glasses. While we commend the organizer for the green initiatives we hope that hydration will not be chaotic as runners swamped each water refilling station to refill their empty water bottles.

  20. says

    Wala ng big size ng singlet, sana makapag provide pa kayo ng maraming big size, (xl,2xl,and if possible 3xl ) Thank you very much kung makakapag provide kayo ng mga size na ito. Please pkai info na lang kung may availaable size na.

  21. run-forest-run says

    The Earth Day run 2012 was not well organized. Few hydration stations and poorly illuminated if not totally dark segments of the route are just two of the glitches I can remember. And now for 2013, even pre-run concerns are not properly addressed: un-answered on line queries, unavailability of singlets, undelivered race kits, no finisher’s medal, no banana stations, late gun start for 21K considering the summer season, and considering that running has become a deadly sport already. And did they tell how they’re gonna plant trees for the runners, or where they’re going to plant? I just hope this is not just a money making scheme, taking advantage of the present enthusiasm of runners. At any rate, goodluck to those who will run this event.

  22. ruel fugen says

    sir available na po b ang singlet ala pa po kc nag notify sa kin kung available na naka register na kaya po me mismo po dun sa greenbelt 3 iniwan ko na rin po yung cp number ko pls feedback po. tnx.

  23. sir nube says

  24. Greg says

    Napaka walang kwentang organizer nitong earth day run na to..nagtext sila sakin telling me na kunin ko nalang sa greenbelt yung race kit ko kasi unknown consignee. When I called them sabi sakin ang sabi daw samin walang nakatira ditong ganyang pangalan, sabi ko nga panu nangyari yun e more than 4 years na kaming nakatira sa address na yun. And I asked them kung bakit hindi manlang ako kinontak thru phone nung dineliver sabi sakin d nila alam. Nagtataka ako kung bakit hindi nadeliver kasi everyday akong nasa bahay since 9pm to 6am ang pasok ko sa Makati and andun pa yung yaya nung pamangkin ko pero wala naman nagdeliver ng race kit. Sabi ko pa sakanila kaya ako nag online registration kasi for my convenience din. Yung pag out ko sa opis na 6am tas 10am pa yung bukas ng greenbelt edi itutulog ko nalang sa bahay namin kasi may pasok pako kinabukasan. Sbi ko pa kung weekends naman since sa QC ako nakatira edi ipapadeliver ko nalang para d nako mamasahe at yung time na pagkuha ko sa greenbelt e pde ko nang ipahinga nalang. Ang sagot sakin sir ndi lang naman kayo yung unknown consignee eh, madami rin pero kinuha na nila yung race kit nila sa greenbelt. Parang sinasabi sakin na wag na daw ako magreklamo at gawin ko nalang yung sinasabi nila. When I told them cge kukunin ko nalang sa Greenbelt pero dapat irefund nila yung pera ko since d nman nadeliver yung race kit sakin ndi na daw pde kasi nagamit na yung 125 na payment. Sbi ko pa nga naiintindihan ko na it’s not their fault, sabi ko pa kaya ko sinasabi yun kasi para next time na may earth day run uli may proseso na sila na let’s say ndi nadeliver yung race kit e irefund nalang nila kesa yung umaabot pa sa point na pinagdidiinan nila na kunin mo nalang sa greenbelt. At ang sagot sakin ni girl isang napaka sarcastic na “Ay sir Maraming maraming maraming salamat po sa feedback niyo ha”. Our conversation went to the point na sabi sakin tawagan ko nalang LBC then they gave me the tracking number and LBC number. When I called ang sabi sakin pde pa madeliver yun basta magfifile ng complaint c organizer. I then dropped the call and called the organizer again sabi ko kailangan sila ang tumawag para mag file ng complaint. Ang sagot sakin ay sir nakapagfile na po kami, pero cge magffile nalang kami uli. That call was around 8am. Natulog muna ko pag gising ko ng 12noon I called LBC and asked them kung may complaint bang nakafile sa tracking number na yun then ang sabi ni LBC “wala po sir”. Yan ba ang klase ng organizer? nung iniinsist ko na refund sa delivery sabi sakin sir mag email nalang kayo sa secretariat pero for what? yung call nga d na nila masolusyunan panu pa kung email. I don’t know kung pano ko ieescalate to sa Nat Geo but if you guys have an idea please let me know. Hindi pde yung ganito lang, kailangan gawan ng aksyon yung ndi nila tamang proseso. This is not just for me pero para din dun sa ibang ndi nadeliver yung race kit kahit nagbayad naman sila.

  25. Stunner says

    Good luck po sa mga tatakbo. Naway maging masayang takbo ito at hindi maging sakit ng ulo ng mga kapwa runners. Run safe.

  26. jeff says

    nagpunta ako sa GB3 april 16 around 7:45pm ang daming tao pero nagulat ako close na ung registration eh ang sabi nila ang cut off time is 8pm madami din sana magreregister pero wala pang 8 close na nila registration dahil daw mapapatayan daw sila ng ilaw ng mall at mag iinventory at magbibilang ng sales in that day.. kawawa naman ung mga naghabol dun ung iba galing pa ng pampanga para magregister lang hindi rin napagbigyan kahit umabot na ung complain sa admin ng mall.. may nakausap ako dung ale umabot ng registration for 3k category paid na pero wala rin ung race kit sabi sa kanya kailangan daw nyang balikan for claiming?? ng race kit haha.. waste of time mo dto ok lang sana kung malapit ka lang eh pano ung mga malalayo? ngayun binago na nila ginawang 7pm cutoff time.. sorry guys! eto ung mga obserbahan ko goodluck sa mga runners! =)

  27. Carlo says

    May I call the attention of Mr. Angel Ballesteros Jr. and his co-workers of the NATGEO Run Registration Booth at Greenbelt 3. Pare, Thursday na ngayon and 2 more days from now close na kayo. When do you plan to text or call me and the other Runners who haven’t gotten their racekit yet? The acknowledgement receipt you gave me (na kung di pa ako humingi e, di nyo bibigyan) has no contact details. Di tuloy ako makapag-follow-up sa inyo. Iniisip ko tuloy ayaw nyo lang paistorbo. If you get the chance to read this, pare, please call or text me at 09178067717/09228806997. I hope you understand. Thanks and God bless to us all!

  28. cabali-an, southern leyte runner says

    opinion ko lang to ha, i think may power naman ata ang licensing department ng makati nito or taguig ba or alinman man sa 2 cities na yan pag dun natin idulog ang mga reklamo natin…subukan nyo lang, i decided na kasi to pass this event dahil nanghihinayang ako at alam naman nating nasa huli ang pagsisisi…subukan lang nating lumapit or tumawag sa BPLO ng makati or taguig kung san naka rehistro ang event nato,alamin sa kanila kung paano maaksyunan mga ganitong reklamo, or sinuman sa city hall para naman magising sila sa ka iresponsablehan nila, seek help in yellow pages and let your fingers do the talking.

  29. Nina Jabson says

    Hi, I would like to share my sentiments regarding this event. I went to register yesterday at greenbelt 3, pass 7 nko nkadating. I was prompted that they cannot accomodate me because ng cut off na daw sila ng 7pm. I told them na ang nklagay sa website its until 8pm. Kelan nyo inimplement yan? Kanina daw umaga. Sbe ko I came all the way from muntinlupa tpos d ako mkaka register. To cut it short d ako nka register. I ask the event organizer if what is the best time to go at kung avail pa un category ko na 3k..Ang sbe nya opo mam. 11 am po pra mkuha nyo pate un race kit nyo.

    Eto na bumalik ako knina at exactly 11am. Dpa sila nka set up tpos ang bago n nman nilang press release sarado na lahat ng category 21k na lng daw. Ay wala daw ksamang singlet yun. If mg register bblikan pa ren daw un race kit.Sbe ko excuse me i just came here last night and i ask politely about the category kya nga ako bumalik eh. Umabsent pko knina sa work tpos wala n nman akong category to register? Ang layo nun biniyahe ko tpos wala? Dko alam kung san ng lapse un event sa nat geo na principal nila o sa event organizer nila? puro palpak eh. Puro sorry. Me isa pa silang staff na ng statement pa knina na kung d daw kme mkaintay we are free to go daw. Wag daw kmeng mapilit. Kng sarado na . Sarado na. Tama ba un? Sana in as much as we patronize the event and National Geo Earth day, eh ma cascade nman nila ng mabuti & professionally un mga changes, ng d pabalik balik un mga tao. To think that the event is made possible because we pay for it and support it.

  30. NOEL says

    If you had been victimized by rogue organizers then walk away and never forget. Withdraw your support and convince others to do the same. Complaining will just waste your valuable time.

  31. Daniel29 says

    Closed na daw poh slots ng 3k, 5k, 10k. Natitira na lang is 21k pero wala ng singlet, bib na lang, 780 ang registration.

    • DOG says

      …..welll complaints above changed my mind into joining this? Saka thats their sentiment,what do you care unless ur a Nat Geo Dog….

      • Daniel29 says

        Huh? Iniinform ko lang naman yung mga may balak pa magregister eh, para hindi na sila mahirapan pang pumunta pa ng Greenbelt. Marunong kbang umintindi ng comment? Peace!

        • Dog says

          Sorry ,was wrong reply to another page….your comment is ok Daniel…was refering to NOEL….wrong page for reply….Thanks

    Anyone Like to sell their Race Kit 5k or BiB or 3K just Text me if Race Kit kasama yung singlet kahit po may tubo ok lang kapag BiB lang give me your reasonable Price thanks.. 09498683976 text me…

  40. Diego says

    Guys, please do not entertain buyers of your singlet and ask for whatever price they want. We run to be competitive, for fun and probably for the singlet. We do not want to make this (selling singlet) a regular thing.

  41. NOEL says

    I am troubled when runners had been reduced to singlet collectors instead of mileage conquerors. Let us hope that runners will run to be purpose driven finishers other than queuing for finisher items.

  42. QUINTIN III says

    …AY SORRY ….” ON SITE REGISTRATION ” PALA….CLOSE NA PALA ON SITE…PWEDE PA BA HABOL SA ON SITE…? HELLO ADMIN…?

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/SBRPhilippines/496032303767136

    Why do I need to connect my chip to my facebook?

    This allows us to determine which timing chip the user was assigned. The use of the activation code also prevents other people from just claiming any bib number.

    Each activation code is unique for every event and bib.
