I’m an avid reader of your blog and I know that you not only post blind items, but also some of your readers’ experiences with bad service, scams, etc., as caution to your other readers. I hope you will post this, not only as caution to your readers, but to call attention also to the organizer of a particular sports event held last October.
This event was sponsored by a popular shoe/sports apparel brand. The number of participants was overwhelming. In all fairness, the event was organized at first with just some minor hiccups (which was understandable because it was a big event). They gave us a runner’s kit before the race (as advertised) and “promised” us a finisher’s kit as well after the race. After the race, we were surprised when we only received a poster and a letter saying that our finisher’s kit will just be sent to the address provided in our registration form.
At that point it was fine with us but as weeks past, we still did not receive our finisher’s kit. The last update they gave us through their Facebook page was last November and that they said they will be delivering this finisher’s item first week of December. It’s now February and we still have not received this item.
If ever they will organize another Run this year I really hope that they will stick to their promise, but I do not think I will be joining this event this year anymore.
Thank you, FP and more power to you!
