Time To Gear Up For 7-Eleven Run 2019


It’s been a couple of years since my last race before I temporarily went on hiatus (which I think most of you are aware of, and even helped in various ways. So, thank you!). Coincidentally, that last race was the 7-Eleven Run 2017. And now, I’m blogging about this upcoming race.

The race is happening simultaneously on February 3, 2018, in three venues. In Luzon, the race will be held at the Filinvest City, Alabang. The Visayas leg will see runners gather at Cebu Business Park. Runners from the southern part of the country will converge at SM City Davao.

This year’s race challenges runners with the new race category – the 32k category. I so missed running this distance in sub-3. A 500m distance will cater to our kiddie participants. There’s also a 10k Buddy Run, and for those who trained for longer distances, there’s a marathon category for you. My last race was also 42k. Anyway, whichever distance you have registered in to participate, this year’s event promises a bigger, better and more exciting race for all.

“The 7-Eleven Run Series is one of the most anticipated marathons in our country today,” said Jose Victor Paterno, President and CEO of Philippine Seven Corporation. “We listened to our runners and added new distances like the 32K which will serve as an entry point or trial run for 42K.”

7-Eleven, in it’s continuing support to Filipino athletes will award the overall top 18 Filipino winners in 21K, 32K, and 42K categories with cash prizes and medals, plus a chance to join an international marathon in Asia, all expenses paid. Just so you know, last year’s winners of the 21K and 42K races from 7-Eleven Run Series 2018 were sent to Jeju, South Korea to compete at the 23rd Jeju International Tourism Marathon Festival where they dominated the top spots in their respective race categories.

To further encourage the spirit of competition, 7-Eleven will be giving away a bonus cash prize to the top Filipino runner who can beat the Philippine record for the 42K category. The record setter will get to take home P500,000 in cash.

The race categories are as follows:
● 500M kids
● 3K
● 5K
● 5K Buddy
● 10K & 10K Buddy
● 16K
● 21K
● 32K (new race category)
● 42K

The race in Davao will only have 9 categories (all except 500M).

Registration is now open until January 15, 2019.
