_This year is and was an explosion of fun runs
and most of them to collect money for a cause.
Unfortunately the ORORAMA fun run was suffering from the absence of many sporty
In the first place (I think), so many were already competing (and tired?) 3 days
before during the Unilab Run.
But not only because of this, probably also tired from all the runs before and
probably "running out of pesos".
I think also many were not aware of this run, I didn't notice any advertisement
in the Gold Star Daily, and of course, even it is a Holiday, it is in the middle
of a working week.
_Nevertheless, the Ororama managers-organizers really deserve more
interested runners because the entrance fee they ask from the runners was really
not too much.
They must have spent a lot for the 'good cause' themselves as of the income from
runners fees was not that much high and the prices for the runners to win were
Our club felt very much honored and happy to receive a donation (2000) for
bringing in the biggest group (17) of (club) runners, Jerald, Melchor, Emily and
Santino were not able to join but they were present!
For this was the first time to organize such an event by the management team of
ORORAMA, I will serve them with a B, the finish area was okay, but the
time(clock) and registration of finishers deserves better attention.
The Monitor showing the run times was often blocked by people, I didn't notice
there was one.
I did notice the enthusiasm of the organizers, it felt good!
No problems for this time, but if there are many more finishers, it will be
Thank you ORORAMA for making an affordable entrance fee for ordinary runners,
thank you sponsors for your support to make that happen!
It was also a cozy event because it was not over crowded, the Oro Sunday Runners
After the event half of us were having a drink and a bread snack in 'Mar Donut'
