This year’s edition of 711 Run was recently held simultaneously again in three different locations of
Manila, Cebu, and Davao last February 3, 2019.
Various runners ran the 42K|32K|21K|16K|10K|5K|3K|500meter dash distances and every year, more and more runners get to register from the nine different categories.
The runners were once again divided into different waves to accommodate the thousands of participants in each running distance.
Marathon distance had a gunstart of 11PM the previous evening of February 2nd with a cut off time of seven hours. This was followed by the batches of 32km, 21k, 10km, 10km Buddy, 5km Buddy, 5km, 3km and 500 m dash.
One of the event hosts and our dear friend, Sir Boy Ramos aka Running Host, was there to spice up the run celebration.
In Davao and for the Mindanao Leg, the run was held at SM City Ecoland area.
Top 3 podium finishers of the 42Km, 32km and 21Km are given the chance to compete in an international Asian marathon, and even have the opportunity to win P500,000 cash.
This year, 7-Eleven is introducing the 32K category which is another challenge to experienced and avid runners. It is a level up to your half mary distance and a prep mileage for your marathon.
What's nice about the 711 Run is the opportunity for families to bond by running or jogging together. Experiencing to meet other runners who share the same healthy habit.
The Manila Leg was again held at the Filinvest area in Alabang. This is one of the few remaining race venue in the city that can accommodate as much ample space for tents and booths a major fun run like 711 can have.
Thank you Filinvest, Alabang! Some of my memorable runs are also from this run venue.
Eversince 711 Run began seven years ago, it has been a signature practice that every after run, loads of freebies from the many sponsors and carrying brands of 711 are distributed to all participants and items like the one above were the results from the 2019 run edition.
Thank you to the many and various sponsors of 711 whose products you see here are all available at all 711 store outlets nationwide.
That's why the 711 Run is likewise touted as the "Grocery Run" too!
Almost all runners are excited to have their ice cream at the finish line after completing their distances care of Selecta Cornetto popsicles and drumsticks.
I had both ice cream's this year after I did my 3K birthday run! Wohooo! I miss the short distance runs.
Any 711 Run would not be also complete without some samples from this brand that "protects" in delicate and intimate moments.
Here's a happy groupie snap from all the distance podiumers in the Visayan Leg of the 711 Run held in Ayala Center in Cebu City.
Congratulations everyone and some of you are flying to an all-expense Asian marathon really soon.
