The 7-Eleven Trail 2019 , the most anticipated cross-country race in the Philippines, has set the bar high with a more challenging course and amazing prizes.
Last February 17, over 3,000 cyclists took to Timberland Heights in San Mateo, Rizal, for the latest iteration of the race. Now on its sixth year, the competition offered two categories: the tough 30km race and the punishing 40km race. Both distances featured one big loop course, with the 40km race seeing two black diamond sections.
“One of the improvements is the new 1.5KM that we included right after the steep road climbs,” said Philippine Seven Corporation President & CEO, Jose Victor Paterno. “We also added new trail features and made numerous trail improvements for the first 5KM of the course.”
These iron men and women finished the race in an impressive time:
- Alvin Benosa
- Archie Duran

- Ariana Dormitorio
- Nicole Quinones
- Melissa Jane Jaroda
- Cailh Jeron Mariano
- Christian Polintan Carlos

Besides bragging rights, the top cyclists will also be sent to Barcelona, Spain to compete in the Red Bull Holy Bike competition happening this May 24-26, 2019.
