Basecamp: Pre-Marathon Base Training starts JULY 4

Thursday, 23 June 2022  |  Race Announcements

Basecamp is a 12-week running program that will build your base mileage for marathon training. It is essentially the pre-training program to TBR Dream Marathon training.

The running program was designed by certified USATF Level 1 and RRCA running coach and TBR Dream Marathon founder, Jaymie Pizarro, The Bull Runner.

Who can join?

Basecamp is for individuals who are new to running, beginners, or runners who are coming back after a long hiatus.

There are 3 Phases to Basecamp with each phase being 4 weeks:

Phase 1: Jul 4 to 31 – if you are new to running or wish to start running again gently start here

Phase 2: Aug 1 to 28 – if you are a beginner runner ora runners who is returning after a long hiatus start here

Phase 3: Aug 29 to Sep 25 – for beginner runners, runners returning after a long hiatus, or runners who want a light running program to prep them for marathon training

The program is open to runners who are not registered for TBR Dream Marathon.

What do you get?

Here’s what you receive when you join us:

+ Weekly Running plan delivered via Tempo by TBR mobile app
+ Direct messaging to Coach Jaymie for support
+ Exclusive group access on Tempo by TBR mobile app

How does a typical week look?

You will be running 3x a week: 2 weekdays are regular runs while we run a bit longer on weekends. You also have one day of walking. Other days you can choose to rest or cross-train. You can switch the days to accommodate your schedule.

The program encourages run-walk intervals for the program. This means we run then walk for a few minutes and repeat. This method is what we have used for all our marathons with over 6,000 TBR Dream alumni and is based on the Galloway Run-Walk Method of U.S. Olympian and running coach, Jeff Galloway.

All runs are done on your own at your most convenient time and preferred schedule. Runs can be done outdoors or on a treadmill.

How will this help you?

Base training will allow you to gradually increase your running time or distance without putting much strain on your body. This safely builds your fitness level whether you are just starting to run or a runner who is just coming back after a long hiatus. This program will improve your endurance slowly but surely with less risk of injury.

This is a BASE TRAINING program. Our goal is to build your foundation for marathon training, NOT go into full training mode just yet. We will go at an easy pace.

How much is Basecamp?

Each phase (4 weeks) costs only USD7.99 or roughly PHP400. That’s only P100 per week!

If you purchase the entire 12-week program, it’s only USD19.99 or PHP1,000. You save PHP200!

– Cinque Terre, Nov 2016 –

2016, you were a breath of fresh air.  After the past few years of tears, troubles, and trying my best to remain strong, I finally felt that, this year, I didn’t have to try as hard.  As my wise 12-year-old daughter put it: “This year, there was less drama.”  That’s her referring to the oh-so tumultuous life of a 5 Seconds of Summer fan, but it was just the same with me.

This year, there was more time to focus on work (I went back to full time corporate life after over a decade), nurture old and new friendships (I’m antisocial but, hey, I expanded my world and that’s an achievement lol), care for my kids (they’re both mini adults now that I can engage in smart and witty conversations with), and, last but not the least, there was more time to nourish my soul.
