The inaugural running of the 7-Eleven 800 Run takes place on January 20, 2013 and offers runners the opportunity to set foot along the newly opened, 7-kilometer Manila-Cavite Expressway or better known as Cavitex. It’s a dual two lane, North and South bound expressway traversing Bacoor Bay, built over water, and a combination of reclamation and viaduct works stretching from Bacoor to Kawit, Cavite.

Runners will surely enjoy the new scenery of running in an expressway above the Manila and Bacoor Bays. I just registered and i’m getting my race packet on August 13 in a 7-Eleven Store near home! Can’t wait to experience this new route and the early morning scene at Manila Bay!

After Tour 700, the Philippines’ biggest bike race event held at the SCTEX last May 13, 2012, 7-Eleven now celebrates the opening of its 800th store with RUN 800 on October 14, 2012 along the CAVITEX, more known as the Coastal Road, with assembly at the Aseana City in Parañaque.

Runners joining the 10k,15k or 21k half-marathon will enjoy this course set along the coastal road – CAVITEX, wherein some of its lanes will be closed just for this race. Those joining in the 3k and 5k categories can look forward to an organized race course along Macapagal Ave.

This is made possible with 7-Eleven’s system of allowing SELF-SELECTED WAVE STARTS, enabling them to run with people with the same skill or speed (or with friends!). To make this run more exciting, the top 3 per age category will receive medals. Top 3 Filipino males and females in the 21k will be sponsored to join the Macau International Marathon on December 2012.
