Preview: 7-Eleven Skyway Marathon On January 17, 2016

One of the most anticipated marathon events in the country, the 7-Eleven Run 2016 at the Skyway goes to the starting line on January 17, 2016 in Filinvest City, Alabang. It will be the new curtain-raiser for the running year of 2016 – perfect occasion for those who are serious in getting back to form or to rev them up for their other succeeding races after the long series of holidays and merry-making.

This also would be one of two events (the other is the Condura Marathon) for those who finally would like to run atop the Skyway for the first time and find the fun and fulfillment in running this car-less super highway.

Organized by top marathon and triathlon Race Director, Neville Manaois, the third edition of this much-anticipated yearly race event by the largest convenience store in the country once again is out to prove that 7-Eleven is serious in providing a top-notch marathon in Manila. It’s often referred to as one of the premier running events which will support the marathon winners for a fully sponsored trip and represent the country to compete in a major marathon abroad.

Race Director Neville Manaois discussing the details of the 7-Eleven Run 2016 during the launch at the Privato Hotel.

Run 2016 promises to be bigger and more exciting, featuring the same categories as last year’s race. Just like last year, Skyway and Filinvest City will be an event venue partner for the 42KM, 21KM, 10KM, 16KM, 10KM, 10KM Buddy, 5KM, 3KM and 500 Meter (Kids run).

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 along Filinvest City.

Run 2016 is made possible with 7-Eleven’s unique system of SELF-SELECTED WAVE STARTS. This enables the participants to choose their wave start and run with people with the same skill or speed (or with friends!).

Top 3 per category will receive cash prizes and medals. Top 3 Filipino males and females in the 21KM and 42KM categories will be sponsored by 7-Eleven to join an international marathon in Asia. Top 3 organizations with the highest number of registrants will also receive a special trophy.

To join, register online at http://www.run711.com/ and pay the fees at any 7-Eleven store within 48 hours. Race Kits can be claimed on the date indicated on the receipt, and from the same store where payment has been made.

Join us and be part of Run 2016!
