When a race event has reached its third year, it means that the organizers already know what they are doing and that most likely, the race event is here to say. Well, that’s what I think about race events. I really like seeing race events happening annually. I’ve talked to a lot of runners and many already say that there are too many race events. I say there are still very few race events and that there are too few runners. The largest number of runners join MILO, with more than 30,000 runners for last July’s Manila leg. I am not counting Run for Pasig because that’s no longer a run anymore with 100,000 people. You can barely run, and water is always a problem and there’s no chance you will ever get a PR with a disorganized race event.
So why join the POGS Run? For one thing, the event venue is Camp Aguinaldo. That’s more than enough reason for anyone to join. How many times do you get to run across roads lined with trees reaching the sky? What about running without minding the air pollution? Or what about road security? But wait, there’s more! I love the cool weather inside Camp Aguinaldo. True, I love running the roads. But the heat does get to me. The chance to do a different race route is something that many runners like me look forward to. On top of it all, there’s the fact that this race isn’t going to cost you an arm and a leg. Big race events also mean larger logistical concerns. I love big races. But there’s something different about small intimate race events too.
