TBR - Sun Life Dream Marathon draws over 700 new marathoners

The Bull Runner-Sun Life Dream Marathon marked its 10th anniversary by paving the way for 765 running enthusiasts to fulfill their dreams of finishing a marathon.

The first and only running event in the world designed for first time marathoners, the Dream Marathon was held recently at Filinvest City in Alabang. It only accepts first- or second-time marathoners, who, upon registration, embark on a 22-week journey where they are provided with a marathon program, run clinics dubbed “Bull Sessions”, running talks dubbed “Bull Circles”, a send-off party, and a fully-supported race with “Dream Chasers,” a team of race volunteers composed of past Dream Marathon finishers.

“What we aim to offer our participants is more than a race, but a life changing experience,” Dream Marathon founder and Sun Life Health & Wellness Marketing Head Jaymie Pizarro, more popularly known as The Bull Runner, said. “We’re thrilled that 10 years since our inaugural run, we’ve built a strong community and have inspired more Filipinos to embrace the sport.”

Pizarro, along with fellow Dream Marathon coaches, personally supervises the run to ensure that participants will successfully achieve their goal of crossing the finish line, and have fun while at it.

The Dream Marathon was lauded by title sponsor Sun Life Financial, which is also a staunch advocate of health and wellness. “We are proud to be a part of Dream Marathon, which perfectly exemplifies our own mission of helping Filipinos live healthier lives,” Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa said. “In the same way that this year’s participants committed to achieving their fitness goals, may we all be inspired to go after our dreams and to conquer our own personal goals so we can enjoy life all the more.”
