Here’s the announcement from RunRio:
Dear Run United Participants,
Please be informed of the following updates:
1. Starting Gun:
The gun start for the 21k category was adjusted from 5AM to 4:30AM. We are allowing a maximum grace period of 30 minute to allow participants to start.
Hence, by 5:01AM, the starting line will be closed to all runners. This is due to the limited time that the race organizer has been allowed to have the race route closed to traffic.
We hope you understand that this is for everyone’s safety and security.
2. Free Shuttle Service:
We are also providing free shuttle service for all 21k finishers from MOA back to BGC starting 6:00AM until 9:30AM only. Shuttles will leave the designated pick-up point every 15 minutes.
Designated pick-up point: OCEAN DRIVE (in between ECOM Bldg. and Blk 12) at the AM Mall of Asia complex. Drop-off point: In front of Riovana Store in Fort-BGC.
Runners are recommended to plan their transportation in advance given that the 21k is a BGC to MOA route.
3. Baggage Counter:
21k runners may leave their bags at any of the 2 designated Baggage Buses parked along the 9th Avenue near the Gun Start area in Fort BGC from 2:30AM until 5AM only. After the race,you may claim your items from the same bus at OCEAN DRIVE (in between ECOM Bldg. and Blk 12) at the SM Mall of Asia.
Participants are strongly advised not to leave any valuables in their bags. The race organizer and any of its sponsors will not be held liable for any loss or damage to your personal items.
