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!
