Thousands worth of cash prizes, freebies and a chance to join an international marathon were awarded in this year’s grand comeback of the 7-Eleven Run Series
No more virtual running this time around as leading convenience store chain 7-Eleven successfully gathered the community back on the road for the 10th installment of the 7-Eleven Run Series.
From newbies, pro runners such as triathlete Nikko Huelgas, running and fitness icons Bubbles Paraiso and Noelle de Guzman, to casual runners joined by their friends and families – everyone showed up to the two-day physical event last September 24 and 25. More than 37,000 runners from all over the country joined in the simultaneous run that happened in Manila at Filinvest, Alabang, Cebu at Cebu Business Park, Ayala Center and Davao at SM City Davao Ecoland.
After conquering the 7-Eleven Run 2022, the top three (3) male and female Overall Filipino winners from the 21KM, 32KM, and 42KM categories will bring their strides to the international stage. Each will have the chance to make their mark and represent the Philippines in the Techcombank Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam International Marathon on December 11, 2022.
Christine Hallasgo, Ruffa Sorongon, and Nhea Ann Barcena led the female category, while Prince Joey Lee, Jimboy Lugay, and Roy Laudit triumphed in the male category for the 21KM event.
Dominating the 32KM event were April Rose Diaz, Rosalyn Tadias, and Jocelyn Elijeran for the female category and Arlan Arbois, Jerome Casinillo, and Richard Salaño for the male category.
Wrapping up the 7-Eleven Run 2022 winners are the elite top finishers of the 42KM event: Judelyn Fann, Maricar Camacho, and Stephanie Cadosale for the female category and Bryan Quiamco, Jerald Zabala, and Florendo Lapiz for the male category.
“From its maiden edition in 2013, to the first simultaneous runs in 2018, up to the back-to-back virtual runs during the pandemic, we are glad to bring our community together, face-to-face, once again. This great comeback for the 7-Eleven Run 2022 would not be possible without the generous help from all of our partners and sponsors, and of course all the participants who eagerly joined the resumption of our most popular 7-Eleven event,” says Jose Victor P. Paterno, President and CEO of Philippine Seven Corp.
Runners from all nine (9) distance categories: 3KM, 5KM, 5KM Buddy, 10KM, 10KM Buddy, 16KM, 21KM, 32KM, and 42KM, were awarded medals, cash prizes and special gifts from this year’s sponsors per race category for top ranking participants ranging from P2,000 to P25,000 as they crossed the finish line.
Along the participants’ chosen course, they were also treated to a fun grocery run with freebies from major 7-Eleven brand partners. More than 30sampling booths were joined by Selecta Cornetto, Pocari Sweat, Kopiko Lucky Day, Nature’s Spring, Gatorade, Summit, Del Monte Fit N Right, Le Minerale, Cali, C2, Coca-Cola, Absolute, Nova, Pepsi, Re Fresh, Cobra, Mountain Dew, Wilkins, Nutri Boost, Smart, CLiQQ and more.
