after the run relaxing at the Rodelsa circle

_As suspected, a few runners were willing to show up for the 'run around the river'.
One day before I heard there was another run organized in the city centre, starting at the LKKS area, a so called 'Bankers' run, probably for some kind of a course I didn't hear about it at all.
Also, some club mate(s) were traveling to Iligan city to join a fun run with an age category.
More and more I come to think that we need some sponsors for our club because it needs money to make a fun run more attractive for an affordable entrance fee.
It is strange, many athletes are still used to do their early Sunday morning trainings in or around the city, but do not like to show up in our monthly events for that very few amount of 20 (before 10) pesos.
Next month is the 24th time, meaning we are organizing these runs for 2 years.
Time to reconsider the way we are organizing these fun runs because of the disappointing numbers of athletes who are not interested in a run outside the city centre.
Who has an idea, please tell me or give me hints how I have to look at this matter.
What is in the Philippine runners soul or mind that our events are so much ignored?

_I was painting for two hours in the early Saturday morning arrows in the left side of the track.
During the night after some rain fell but not too much and I was expecting the arrows would still be there.
(1 km was not to find anymore and 2 and 3 were also hard to find, covered by sand and slick)
I was not able to paint all arrows on the road, some I had to paint on a propeller (km.4) and some on a big stone, but always on the left side of the street.
This time the (mainly) youngsters ran onto about 2½ km and made about 5 km, so no problems, only I didn't mark 2½ km.
So, no one was doing a long distance, not even around the river completing the full track.
Our next run will be the same track, we'll see what will happen that day that morning, and who will join.
