Re: VMWorld Fun Run???

I'm out as well. I paid this ridiculous price for the Vegas run last year and it was a letdown. I say we all go down there with our 2010 shirts on and run our own 5k.

Re: VMWorld Fun Run???
Is anyone from VMware reading this? Who is coordinating the run? I did not see any contact information on the registration form. It might be to late for them to fix this... but I'd wager the attendance would go up by at least 200% if they could line up a sponsor (cough VMware, cough EMC) to make the cost reasonable!

Re: VMWorld Fun Run???

Who would be interested in meeting on Tuesday morning around 5:30 AM to run across the bridge?

 

I'm thinking we'd need to get back for the keynote by 7:30 or so to get cleaned up.

 

I've got my VMworld 2009 Fun Run shirt and I'm seriously thinking that will be my morning/time to run across the bridge, even if I have to take a cab out there.

Re: VMWorld Fun Run???

On the vmworld socialcast site some people have mentioned meeting up Monday morning @ 6AM PST near Marina Blvd. & Old Mason Street by the Exploratorium. The route goes over Golden Gate and back. Here is a link to the route...

Re: VMworld Fun Run???
Yeah, more than any marathon or half-marathon I've ever paid for even with transportation. Somebody is out of touch with how the recreational running ecosystem works. Surely a bunch of tech companies have deeper pockets to sponsor these kind of things than water and shoe companies! I'd like to know which ones would refuse to sponsor an event like this.
