The country’s go-to convenience chain, 7-Eleven, celebrates and promotes health among its consumers with the fun-filled 7-Eleven Run.
This year’s wellness activity gathered professional and recreational runners from different parts of the country last February 3. Runners in the simultaneous event in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao showcased their love for the sport while spending time with friends and family.
“7-Eleven Run series is regarded as one of the most anticipated marathons in the country today,” Jose Victor Paterno, President and CEO of Philippine Seven Corporation said.
“This year, we’ve made it more interesting by adding more categories to better fit the demand of every type of enthusiast—from the recreational runner to the professional athlete. We believe that by doing a sporting event like the 7-Eleven Run, we can contribute to the growth and development of Filipino sportsmen who are well on their way to bring pride to our country.”
In addition to medals and cash prizes, this year’s marathon winners get the chance to participate in an international marathon in Asia, all expenses paid. These winners will get the chance to go overseas and represent the Philippines in the international marathon:
