Milo Approves Additional 5km Slots for the 35th Milo Marathon

Last July 6, my officemates and I went to Toby's in SM Mall of Asia to register for the 35th Milo Marathon. I decided to go 10k since it's my second time to run after NatGeo, but since I also want my brother to participate in Milo Marathon, and that he it's his first time to join a race, I wanted him to run 5k.

Too bad, the slots for 5k were already closed that time due to the strong response from the running public who definitely want to be one in this run for a cause. Many others who went there to register was a bit anxious because of the limited slot, and was forced to either run 10k as my brother did, or just back out from the race.

So I was really delighted to see this news about Milo and Run Rio opening additional slots for 5k run. If you wanted to run but got discouraged because of the limited slots, here's your chance to join! Hurry for it's a first come first serve basis only.

Here's the announcement 35th Milo Marathon via Runrio.com:

Milo via Runrio, Inc. .announced today that they are opening additional slots for the 5km race category of the 35th Milo Marathon Manila Eliminations. This announcement was made after Milo finally decided to give-in to thenumerous requests that they and Runrio, Inc as this year’s race organizer, have been receiving.

Here are some guidelines/important facts related to the opening of additional 5km race category slots:

1. Slots are limited only and will be available only via In-Store registration (ONLINE Registrants will not be able to register for 5km).
2. Slots available at the stores will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
3. Registration for this limited 5km slots will start tomorrow, July 13, 2011.
4. There will be no baggage counters for 5km and also the 3km race categories. This has been an existing policy of the yearly Milo Marathon race event.
