PRC arrives in Nuvali to cheer
They started running 2am. At that time, we were still sound asleep as we, TBR Dream Marathoners Supporters from Pex Running Club, met at 5am and went to the wide open spaces of Nuvali together.
We arrived at around the 5:30 marker which was around 7am and awaited for the new marathoners to arrive. As we waited, we cheered for the other TBR marathoners.The energy in Nuvali was festive. Fellow running teams was also there to cheer for their members.
Cheering even if it started to rain
At around the 6:30 marker, CJ arrived towards the finish line and we cheered him on to his first marathon moment.
Then, Dom arrived who promised to arrive at the 7 hour marker. He missed his goal by a few minutes but he was still happy as he paced with Ian who arrived minutes later.
Then, Ian followed after a few minutes. His wife, Jenny joined us as we cheered him to the finish.
There were a lot of funny moments in that day. Yuri got lost going to Nuvali and we got funny conversations over the phone. It rained. The sun went up. The wind gushed our way. Mia shared her Durian treats. Jovit shared all kinds of snacks from peanut butter sandwiches to cupcakes. Sein, Enrichard and I paced our fellow members towards their TBRDM finish.

At 8 hours, we decided to proceed to the shaded cheerers area since Nino wasn't there yet. Mia asked the organizers to find out that they were still running in the last 10k to the finish line. Drew said it would still be an hour until they arrive so we just hanged out, talking about everything and taking photo ops. Past the 9 hour marker, Nino arrived with his wife and we cheered them to their finish. It wasn't that long until the last runners arrived so we let Nino and his wife have their winning moment and went to have lunch in a nearby food place in Laguna.
Congrats, Nino and his wife!!!
Congratulations, CJ, Dom, Ian and Nino (and his wife)!!!
