Started on 2012, 7-Eleven will be holding RUN 1500 on March 15, 2015 as its latest installation to its successful Run series.
7-Eleven RUN 800, held last 2012, was the first ever 7-Eleven fun run which attracted over 10,000 participants which was then followed by another success: 7-Eleven Run 1000. The latter attracted almost 18,000 runners and was marked as the largest paid race in the country in 2014.
Traditionally, the 7-Eleven Run Series is also held to celebrate store opening milestones: RUN 800 to celebrate 800 stores in the Philippines, RUN 1000 to celebrate 1000 stores and this year, RUN 1500 in anticipation of opening its 1,500th store in the country.
What’s New with the 7-Eleven Fun Run Series?
RUN 1500 promises to be bigger and better, featuring new categories as well as new venue partners, Skyway and Filinvest City.
Now a full marathon, the race now includes a 42KM category, a 10KM buddy run and 500M fun run for kids. Runners joining the 10KM, 16KM, 21KM, 42KM categories and 10KM Buddy Run will enjoy the course set along the Skyway. Those joining the 500M, 3KM and 5KM categories can look forward to an organized race course in Filinvest City.
What to expect from RUN 1500:
People can enjoy a fun, organized race made more convenient with 7-Eleven’s system. Runners can easily register online and pay at the nearest 7-Eleven store and claim their race kits there.
The registration system also allows participants to choose their wave starts to allow them to run with those of the same skill or speed, or with friends or family.
Note: All finishers in each category will receive finisher shirts and medals. Top 3 for each category will also receive cash prize.
Another traditiion in the 7-Eleven Run Series is to give Filipino runners opportunities to be more competitive. Each Run, 7-Eleven sends top Filipino placers of the 21K category to represent 7-Eleven Philippines and compete in an international marathon, all expenses paid.
7-Eleven Run Series winners have been sent to the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon in Cambodia and Seoul Race in South Korea where Pinoy pride was well represented. Following in the footsteps of Janette Agura (2nd place winner in Angkor Wat), were our RUN 1000 delegates who dominated the Seoul Race last 2014. Mary Joy Tabal, won 1st place in thge women’s 21KM, while Mario Maglinao and elmer Sabal won 1st and 3rd place, respectively for the men’s category.
This year, 7-Eleven will be sponsoring the top 3 Fillipino males and females of 21KM and 42KM to join the Laguna Phuket International Marathon in Thailand.
