Run.PH is a website that aims to empower runners to join more runs and help organizers reach more runners. It is the labor of love of Raymond Racaza who started working on it 5 years ago.
I have known Raymond years ago thru a common friend. I know how tech savvy they are and how they innovate in everything related to technology. He also the husband of my gorgeous friend, Ging who was one of our models for a clothing venture Sasha with my designer sister Mimi.
It was not until he got into running that I have known him more. Thru facebook, he would ask for tips for his first ultramarathon-the Tagaytay to Nasugbu 50K Ultramarathon. He finished strong and eventually conquered more running milestones from beating personal records to finishing his first triathlon.
In the short time I have known him, I have seen how passionate he is with his craft. He also one of the most grateful persons I have met. He would thank me endlessly for the small help I’ve given him which I appreciate
His passion for technology and running plus his grateful demeanor = Run.Ph.
Quoting from run.ph Raymond said, “I owe a lot to running because it has brought out the best in me. I have been very blessed to have finished over 25 half-marathons, 3 full marathons, and most recently an ultramarathon without any injury. And the best part, countless friends that I have made along the way.” Indeed, he is paying it forward….
When I first met with Raymond about the project, all I can say was “Wow” as he navigates through its pages. I could hardly wait for it to launch that I would visit the test site often. 🙂
Jaymie made a review of the website where she enumerated exactly what to expect here: http://thebullrunner.com/2013/03/run-ph-the-game-changer-for-the-philippines-online-running-community/. I have the same thoughts.
The Bald Runner, Sir Jovie Narcise has also seen it during one of our happy hour meet-up which I shared here . He gave a thumbs up as well.
