Last Sunday's Gatorade Run 2015 was 8,000 runners strong. Not a bad turn out at all for their first run. The race, organized by Run Rio, was very organized. From the time I got to the venue to collect my race kit, until I crossed the finish line and got my finisher treats, everything went down smoothly.
Oh, and did you notice that something clever went down too? The Gatorade Run was hashtagged #Gatorade1122 because it was held on November 22 and only had (the odd) categories of 11 and 22 kilometers. It's things like that shows how Gatorade/organizers/agency tried to make every little thing special, I think. An Easter egg at the run, if you will. haha.
I did the 11K run which ran past MOA's Sunset Blvd. to Roxas Blvd. and just looped back. Though not a chilly morning for a November, it was cloudy, which was good enough for me. A relaxed, easy run, just the way Sundays should be. :)
