The Power of Race Photos and Results

There was a time when race results merely tell a runner’s official time and photos merely serve as souvenir of an event.  These days, these two combined do much, much more than that. Back during my early days of joining races (circa 2008-2009), a race result is a mere list of names and their respective…

Marathons: More Fun in the Philippines

Running had become the “it” sport in urban centers in the Philippines these past few years with races achieving “world-class” levels, and if I were to pick three amongst the best in the country, the list would look something like this…

Timing Chips: Obsolete?!

Technology really runs fast!  I can still remember the day when ChampionChips were still the “in” thing when it comes to races in the Philippines!  Just as we’re getting used to D-Tags, now comes another tech to replace it.  Of course this innovation can only be expected from Runrio:
