Almost everyone have experienced running on the Skyway but has anybody ever tried running along CAVITEX? None yet, I bet! Here folks is one race that will make it possible for everyone to run a portion of the CAVITEX! The 7-11 Run 800 – an event with an exciting race concept, a new race route and very good prize incentives for the would-be top finishers!
Read on the reasons why this race is a “must” in my good friend Bards’ 7-11 Run 800 post at her BANANARUNNING blog or see the exciting race amenities as posted in detail at the Pambansang Legs blog of another friend of mine, Eman . I could not have said it much better.
Oh and here folks is the official press release:
ABOUT THE RACE. After Tour 700, the Philippines’ biggest bike race event held at the SCTEX last May 13, 2012, 7-Eleven now celebrates the opening of its 800th store with RUN 800 on August 26, 2012 along the CAVITEX, more known as the Coastal Road, with assembly at the Aseana City in Parañaque.
Runners joining the 10k,15k or 21k half-marathon will enjoy this course set along the coastal road – CAVITEX, wherein some of its lanes will be closed just for this race. Those joining in the 3k and 5k categories can look forward to an organized race course along Macapagal Ave. This is made possible with 7-Eleven’s system of allowing SELF-SELECTED WAVE STARTS, enabling them to run with people with the same skill or speed (or with friends!). To make this run more exciting, the top 3 per age category will receive medals. Top 3 Filipino males and females in the 21k will be sponsored to join the Macau International Marathon on December 2012.
SUPPORT YOUR CITY. Run 800: Takbo para sa Kalusugan will award feeding and medical assistance to the top 3 cities you voted for.
