Archie Dolit
Founder.
Runner. Volunteer. Traveler.

An engineer by profession, volunteer by passion and runner and traveler on weekends.

He started running in 2008 out of boredom.
He has nothing to do after office so he began jogging in Marikina Sports Center.

His running career evolved from a casual 5K runner, to a more serious 10K runner to numerous half-marathons and almost marathons and finally became a full pledge marathoner as part of TBR Dream Marathon batch 2016.

He completed his first international marathon in Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore 2016 while supporting his wife’s debut marathon.
From a middle of the pack runner, he hopes to lead the pack by breaking the sub 2hr barrier for 21km and sub 4hr for 42.195km distance.

Archie is also an active volunteer in various organizations.
He volunteers for education programs, medical and dental missions and other socio-civic activities.

Aside from running and volunteering, Archie loves travelling to different places.
Together with his wife, they visited different countries in Asia and plan to conquer Europe soon…
