SAFERUN 2012 Experience: Sidetrip and Results

It’s March 4, 2012. The SAFERUN 2012 participants have gathered in Hotel Supreme in Baguio for the announcement and awarding of prizes to the winners.

Based on MY computation, I am at 65.21 km per Liter and that might land me a spot in the Top 10! ….5th placer even! or maybe even the P15,000 Champion! :p

Unfortunately, I (like most of the participants) was deemed DISQUALIFIED for not making the cut-off time in Day 1. Well, at least I won a Petron Sprint 4T oil in the raffle. We also got our certificates, FINISHER Tshirt and a Petron Rewards Card.

After the ceremony, I toured Baguio City with my co-participants from Laguna Moto Club. We visited the entrance of  The Mansion.

…picked strawberries at the Strawberry Farm..

it would be cool if the leaves were pink too, right?

Dokies enjoying strawberry-flavored ice cream. Yum!

….shopped in Burham Park..

LMC participants have 2 Honda Dash, 2 Honda Wave and 3 Yamaha Sniper

…..and even attempted (but failed) a quickie ride to The Highest Point in Atok, Benguet.

My LMC buddies left for Laguna that night while I chose to remain in Baguio for 1 more night. I have my own plans….. hehe!

if only the slums of Manila can be this beautiful..

When I got back to Laguna, I received good news! As it turned out, the results announced were not final. The next two weeks, I was monitoring the results online and once the FINAL RESULT was out, Dhona and I emerged in 5th place in our category! Hoooraaay!!

Instead of being DQ’d, I received a penalty instead. Hence, the final fuel efficiency lower than my computation.
