Filinvest City provides 7-Eleven Run participants a healthy dose of the outdoors with its lush surroundings.
With its abundance of tree-canopied roads, and fresh air, Filinvest City will once again play host to the 7-Eleven Run 2018 set this February 4.
The premier lifestyle destination in Metro South promises the race to be bigger and more exhilarating with simultaneous races in Manila, Cebu, and Davao, as it continues to provide participants a healthy dose of the outdoors.
“We are happy that 7-Eleven has chosen Filinvest City once again as venue partner of their run series. And we cannot wait to welcome thousands of participants and let them experience the outdoors Filinvest City offers,” shares Don Ubaldo, Filinvest Alabang Inc.’s senior assistant vice president for Townships.
Now on its fourth year, the 7-Eleven Run will let Manila runners have the option to race in nine categories: 42KM, 21KM, 16KM, 10KM, 10KM Buddy Run, 5KM, 5KM Buddy Run, 3KM, and 500M Kids Run.
For the 10KM, 5KM, 3KM, and 500M categories, participants can look forward to a challenging organized race course set amidst the green, master-planned urbanscape of Filinvest City.
Making the race even more energizing is the Spectrum Linear Park, the innovative “green belt” that spans across the north and south ends of the township.
“Having 7-Eleven Run here is a testament of our commitment to promote active lifestyle. More greens and parks are in place so people go out and run or even walk. Bike lanes are also present in major roads. Infrastructures are there to encourage people to live their lives actively,” Ubaldo added.
Powering the 7-Eleven Run 2018 is 7-Eleven’s proprietary system of Self-selected Wave Starts, which enables runners to select their individual wave starts and allows them to run with people of the same skill, speed, or with family and friends.
Top three winners per category of each leg will get a chance to take home cash prizes and medals.
