TA1 pose (TR Diversity run)

TR stands for Thomson Reuters where I’m currently employed and as part of it’s running club activities, we hosted a fun run that promoted diversity among work the place. It would be a single distance event(3k) and the route would be along McKinley Hill.

We have a nice stage ey?

I won’t be running this event but instead, I’ll be your friendly marshal. I’ll be incharge at the finish line guiding the male and female  runners before crossing the finishline (what an important task to do. lol). This would help the other marshals in accurately recording their finish times especially for top finishers (everything was manual, pen and paper).

Hold your horses! With TRRC Captain Markhernz

We have medals, cash prizes and a good for two buffet at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel for the top winners. Nice! We didn’t expect much participants until the race day itself.  Not only non-TR employees came and registered but some elites also participated during the event. Some of my teammates also joined and were ready for action.

Me with Marvin the Martian, Eugenator and Jun the Bandit (but he registered)

Without further ado, let’s jump to the start of the race. (Check out the full details of the race from Kamote Runner’s blog). No gunshot… with just the host saying “three, two, one.. GO!” and they’re off.

Simple but nice start/finish line

3 male elites were on the lead pack followed by some veteran runners and the 3 guys in red(babagal niyo Alpha1). I prepared myself as elite runers usually finish a 3km race in less than 10 mins.

Battling for the free buffet. haha!

Cutest Thomson Reuters runners

After a few minutes, elite runners dominated the 1st and 2nd place. As for the 3rd, 4th and 5th place… hmm… well, it went to the 3 ungas from Team Alpha 1. 🙂

Tada!

 It was a fun-filled activity of the Thomson Reuters Running Club. Good to start the weekend before we hit the Greenfield run at Sta. Rosa, Laguna the next day. We will definitely be doing this again next year. Watch out for it. 🙂

This also marked the day when the TA1 pose was officially declared. LOL!

Like! Hahaha

’til the next fun run!
