This spectacular SKYWAY Course was formerly the domain of both 7-Eleven and the recently cancelled Condura Skyway Marathon but will now be used exclusively for the annual 7-Eleven Run to be held on February 5, 2017. So after the success of Run 800 in 2013, Run 1000 in 2014, Run 1500 in 2015 and Run 2016, this year’s run is expected be the biggest and most exciting of the series yet.

THE 7-Eleven Run has steadily grown in numbers from a field of 2.000 runners in 2013 to a race that now fills to a capacity of more than 12,000 runners. Over the years, the 7-Eleven Run has added additional distances (3k, 10k, 16k) and a 500 meter-sprint held in the spirit of fitness and fun for kids who want to run. All of these distances are a component of 7-Eleven’s mission to expose people of all ages to the benefits of a healthy lifestyle through running.
Top 3 per category will receive cash prizes and medals. Top 3 Filipino males and
