“The adidas King of the Road is a platform that allows runners to achieve their personal best. As a global leader, adidas continuously provides top of the line products, technology, and events that support runners from all over to be the best they can be,” says Jason Gervasio, adidas Brand Communications and Sports Marketing Manager.
Demonstrating the brand’s exceptional commitment to the sport, the first adidas KOTR Southeast Asia Championship, held last year, unified runners from all around the region. The event had participants from the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia all competing in a bid to be crowned as the adidas SEA ‘King of the Road’. The Philippines was chosen as the first country to host the culminating activity of the Southeast Asian championship race in October 2011. Last year, multi-color adidas singlets displayed the vibrancy of running as a sport across the region. This year’s KOTR will feature a new set of colorful singlets that will be on full display at the event.

TBR Dream Marathon 2013 Sold Out in 32 minutes and Good News

Monday, 3 September 2012  |  Race Announcements

[ TBR Dream Marathon 2013: Sold Out! ]

As you probably know by now, this blog crashed Saturday morning when we were set to launch Online Reservation for TBR Dream Marathon 2013.  This was due to the high traffic from runners who were eager to register.  Our web guys solved the problems, but, as I was about to launch it again at 12noon, the blog crashed again.  Sigh. We moved Online Reservation to Sunday 12noon instead and had this blog go “on leave” to free up the load on the site and ensure a smooth reservation process.  Needless to say, I’m thrilled to have everything return to normalcy.

The Online Reservation yesterday was smooth, successful, and…must I say…extremely fast!  We filled up all 600 slots in all of 32 minutes!  Unbelievable!

Thank you to everyone who signed up for TBR Dream Marathon 2013!  We know how important your first marathon will be and to have you entrust this special experience with us is an honor.

My apologies again to everyone who was inconvenienced by the reservation issues. We didn’t anticipate the traffic caused by the announced reservation date.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  This kind of positive energy is perfect for future marathoners!

 [ GOOD NEWS: TBR DREAM MARATHON 2013 slots to increase from 600 to 750 ]

Due to the high demand for slots to TBR Dream Marathon 2013, we decided last night to increase our slots from 600 to 750 runners!

We won’t be reopening reservation.  We accepted more than enough sign ups yesterday for all 750 runners plus wait listed runners.

We will be releasing the List of 750 Reserved Runners by tonight or tomorrow so please stay tuned!
