TBR Dream Marathon 2013: Reservation Opens Sept. 1, 2012

Sunday, 26 August 2012  |  Race Announcements


For the first time since we launched TBR Dream Marathon, we’ve decided to announce opening of our online reservation.  This new move will allow all interested runners equal opportunity to reserve their slot on the scheduled date without being hindered by work or family schedules.

The 4th TBR Dream Marathon 2013 will be staged on February 24, 2013 at NUVALI, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.  Reservation will open on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2012, 5:00 AM.  Visit


  1. TBR DREAM MARATHON is open to 600 FIRST- or SECOND-TIME MARATHONERS only.  (For TBR DM 2012, 600 slots were filled in 9 hours so if you’re serious about this race, we highly recommend you sign up as soon as you can.)
  2. We follow a strict first come, first served rule.
  3. Reservation does NOT mean immediate acceptance into TBR Dream Marathon 2013. The Organizer screens all applicants and reserves the right to refuse entry or disqualify a participant.
  4. When slots are filled, a master list of RESERVED RUNNERS will be posted.
  5. Reserved Runners will be given ample time to officially register for the race.  Failure to appear during registration will lead to automatic forfeiture of slot which will then be turned over to the next runner on wait list.

TBR Dream Marathon 2012: Where Everyone Who Crosses the Finish Line is a Winner

Tuesday, 20 March 2012  |  Bullish Insights

Two days ago, March 18, 2012, hundreds of runners became marathoners at TBR Dream Marathon 2012 in NUVALI, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.  (Official results is being validated and will be released soon.  Photos from ActiveMoments will be available for download within one week.)

– Daves came in first –

On this day, 22-weeks of serious training paid off…



Runners learned about their own strength in the face of pain or injury…



Strong bonds were formed and strengthened…




And, lives were changed as dreams became reality.







To all those who were part of TBR Dream Marathon 2012, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.  While this was a dream that started with Jim and I, it only became reality because of so many people who worked behind the scenes to give our runners the best race possible…

Thank you to my dearest friends and members of TBR Dream Team: Jim, Neville, Lit, Jun, Macel, and Creative Juice (Gary, Janice, Micky, Diane)  who worked tirelessly with me to try to make this the perfect race. As I’ve said a million times, TBR Dream is yours as much as it is mine.



Thank you to our presenter and my partner Unilab Active Health, especially Clint, Alex, Lester, and Zeny (It was a pleasure working with such a professional yet friendly team!), our co-presenters Runrio and Sun Broadband, our major sponsors New Balance, Oakley, Gatorade, and Otterbox, and our minor sponsors, Timex, Secondwind Running Store, Proactive, Nathan, Nutribar, Chris Sports, Blacksheep Manila, Robinsons Supermarket, Neat Feat, Milo 3 in 1, Runner’s Runner, Purefoods, Starbucks, Dole, Toblerone, Cetaphil, P&G, Crystal Clear, Messy Bessy, Forward Lean Running, ROX, and BGC, our Media Partners, Multisport and Ripple 100, our hotel partners, El Cielito, Paseo Premiere, and Laguna Technopark.

Thank you to NUVALI, the home of TBR Dream Marathon. To Jun Bisnar, Jenn Chua, and the rest of the NUVALI team, who have continuously been supportive of our race.


Thank you to our Dream Chasers, especially the DC Tent leaders, Miriam, Allan, Mark and Gene, and Edward Kho who cheered their lungs out and provided all that they could to get every runner to the finish.


Thank you to our Pacers, marshals, and staff who provided support to the runners and the organizing team.

Thank you to our friends, Christine Jacob-Sandejas, Maricel and Anthony Pangilinan, Kuya Kim Atienza, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Alex Racho, Coach Jim Saret, Dr. George Canlas, Dr. Randy Molo, Mitch and Armand Mendoza, who took time off their busy schedules to cheer for the runners or speak during the Bull Circles.



Last but not the least, thank you to the runners for entrusting 22-weeks of your lives and your first or second marathon with us. It was a journey that we were glad to take on with you and we hope to be with you as you pursue even bigger (or longer) dreams!

CONGRATULATIONS to each one of you! May you continue to “Dream Big. Run Strong.” and inspire others to do the same.
