Now on its 8th year, 7-Eleven Run 2020 promises to be an exciting event for both professional and recreational runners.
After the first successful simultaneous run in 2018, 7-Eleven held the second installment of the race in three locations across the country — in Manila, Cebu, and Davao with over 30,000 runners participating.
Each year, 7-Eleven Run winners are sent to compete in an international marathon in Asia, all expenses paid. Last year, runners were sent to the Laguna Phuket Marathon in Thailand where some of them placed the top spots.
This Run 2020 happening on February 2, 2020, more cash prizes are at stake and runners can expect new race categories such as 1K run, 21K relay, and 42K relay.
The relay team must have four members with one member of the opposite sex. Each member of the relay teams will have a designated area to run with the first runner to pass the baton to the second runner and so forth. For the 21KM, each member must run 5.25KM while for the 42KM, each runner must finish 10.5KM.
The race in Luzon will be held in Manila (the venue is yet to be announced soon). The Visayas leg will be held at Cebu Business Park, while the Mindanao leg will be in SM City Davao.
A RUN LIKE NO OTHER
As always, 7-Eleven continues to support Filipino athletes. This year, the overall top 3 Filipino winners for 21K, 32K, and 42K will be awarded cash prizes and medals, plus a chance to join an international marathon in Asia, all expenses paid. Last year, winners of the 21K and 42K races from 7-Eleven Run Series 2018 were sent to Laguna Phuket Marathon in Thailand to compete where some of them placed the top spots.
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 Php500,000 in cash.
