SportyTechie at Hyundai Run for a Cause

April 5th, 2011

Many doubted, many weren’t expecting, and many were wrong! Who would have though a free run with more than 24,000 participants would be this good? Hyundai pioneered with this great event proving that you don’t need to pay expensive to have a premiere run, making RunRio’s events a run for their money. Yes, its possible for an event to be free but be well organized and I hope other running events in the future will follow in Hyundai’s example.

Overall the event was top notch. The Wave system greatly helped the running lanes for this event avoiding clogging of runners in the first few kilometers. A running first, the Hyundai Run for a Cause organizers made it’s mark in the running community with its 5km long Human Chain of Race Marshals ensuring runners to stay on their running lanes. The running singlet is well made considering its a free run, and the organizers took the extra mile by including RFID Timing system for hassle free retrieval of times for participants. Basic needs are covered, the route was well hydrated with tons of bottled water along the route, about two water trucks and portalets along the route too! The best of all, there were photographers from RunnersRunner who took our shots even though we were late for about 40 minutes.

I hope Hyundai will host another great and free run like this especially the Hyundai Run for a Cause was well received by the local running community. To Hyundai and all the event staff and organizers, SportyTechie salutes you for your great work!

Hyundai Run for a Cause – Race Pack Contents

Hyundai Run for a Cause Race Pack

SportyTechie and crew just claimed our Race Packs for the Hyundai Run for a Cause and I’m a bit surprise at the quality of the running singlet included. Honestly, I were expecting more of a low-quality singlet made from cheap fabric (the one that may chaff your skin during long runs) since the event is free but I’m wrong, very wrong.

The singlet is well designed, comfortable to wear and fits nicely. Unlike other singlets that from previous runs I joined which are now just lying around in my closet, surely I’ll use this every now and then when I’m at home. More surprisingly, the pack includes a RFID Timing tag just like RunRio’s D-Tag that makes getting results a breeze and much much accurate, down to the second.

 

Now, who says there’s nothing good and free? Hyundai and its organizers surely give a big effort to make this running event successful. I do hope dividing the run in waves will make this event much much organized than last year’s Milo Marathon which flooded the same venue with more than 25,000 runners and made the run very chaotic with congestion at the first 5km of the route.
