Even the race started with rain; we didn't stop on it thinking of some slippery road waiting for us ahead!

Kudos everyone who organize this race - Unilab Active Health and RunRio! This is one of the awesome race that I joined so far! Plenty of hydration in every station, bananas, sponges and portalets that are necessary are there. My friends also told me that this run is great - having plenty of giveaways like medals, games , cheering competitions, photo booths and freebies awaits in the finish line. Yes, at this time I got finisher shirt that fits for me; but not for everyone. Some runners argue about their finisher shirt the second time around because some of them are bigger that their preferred size.
For the next event, I hope you will have people in charge in the Finisher Shirt that will be assign for the fitting ; even in the suppliers so that they will tally ahead of time how many runners will wear the particular size. In over all rating, this race is great! Congratulation for this success. Hope for more development and good news on this coming Run United 3.
