Some important but quick reminders for TBR Dream Marathoners 2012:
1) SUBSTITUTION DEADLINE: Deadline February 6, 2012, Monday
We have moved the deadline for substitution (transfer of slot to another runner due to registered runner’s inability to run) earlier from February 28, 2012 to February 6, 2012, Monday. This is to provide us, the organizers, ample time to prepare for the race kits which, for the first time, includes a personalized race bib. This also ensures that substitute runners have more than a month before race day.
After February 6, we will strictly implement this rule and accept no special requests for substitution. Runners who run TBR Dream under another runner’s name will not be officially recognized as a race finisher and will not receive a medal or lootbag.
2) MEDICAL CERTIFICATES – Deadline March 10, 2012, Saturday
As stated in our rules, we will be requiring you to submit a medical certificate from a licensed physician confirming that you are fit and ready to run 42km on March 18, 2012. This is for your own safety. The medical certificate must be dated anytime from February 1, 2012 to March 10, 2012. Deadline for submission is on redemption of race kits on our TBR Dream Send Off Party on March 10, 2012. No medical certificate, no race kit.
Medical certificates may be submitted during Bull Sessions and Bull Clinics. We will also inform you of a drop box at a convenient location.
Our website is up and running. This should provide you with info regarding the race as it draws near. Please do not comment here. All inquiries should be directed to macel(at)thebullrunner.com or our TBR DM hotline: SUN 0922-771-8014
4) Facebook Group (only for TBR Dream Alumni and TBR Dream 2012)
Make sure you are signed up for our Facebook group. Now that we’re fully immersed into preparing for the race, we’ll be posting questions or polls to ensure we get your opinion on the race. Click on this LINK for a request. Our moderator will accept you only upon confirmation that you are a registered runner.
5) Pacers and Dream Chasers
We’ve been getting a LOT of inquiries regarding pacers (one person who will run with a runner throughout the entire 42k) and Dream Chasers (volunteer runners who will be stationed at various points of the course offering support, cheer, help, and anything else the runner will need to get him/her to the finish). We will be releasing the sign up sheet for this within the next couple of weeks. As always, first come, first served basis. Organizers will also screen the applicants and reserve the right to approve or reject applicants.
Thanks and see you tomorrow for our 3-hour Bull Session in NUVALI! Woohoo!
