Team 7-Eleven Philippines Ready for the Ho Chi Minh City Intl Marathon in Vietnam

Five of the 16 Filipino Elite Runners to represent Team 7-Eleven Philippines were guests in the Sports Show – “The Game” together with 7-Eleven’s Gen. Merchandise Division Head and Managing Director for Digital, Mr Jose C. Ang, Jr.

After two years of being relegated to a virtual race format due to the pandemic, the 7-Eleven Run Series had its much-awaited big comeback via the in-person/physical race format last September 25, 2022, at the Filinvest City in Alabang and in Cebu Business Park and SM City Davao for the Cebu and Davao legs, respectively.

This 2022 race series was very much anticipated by both recreational and competitive runners because apart from providing a very challenging but well-organized run, 7-Eleven Philippines, the run series’ prime mover, and with the support of their various sponsors has always prepared awesome post-run treats for everybody.

Out of the total 35,000 participants for all three legs, the top overall Filipino male and female runners from the 42k, 32km, and 21km categories will be given a chance to compete in an international race event. This year, the race will be the 5th Techcombank Ho Chi Minh City International Marathon in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Seeing action this December 11, 2022 in Ho Chi Minh City are the following qualifiers:

Out of the 16 qualifiers, six are having their international race debut courtesy of 7-Eleven Philippines. Those who qualified for the first time are Florencio Lapiz ( 42km, 3rd overall male), Arlan Arbois and Jerome Casinillo (32km, 1st and 2nd overall, respectively) Rosalyn Tadias and Stephanie Cadosale (32km, 2nd and 3rd overall female, respectively), and Roy Laudit (21km, 3rd overall male).

Since its inception last 2013, The Run 7-Eleven Series became a channel for Filipino elite runners to show their skills and talent as runners and prove that they have what it takes to compete with runners from all over the world through an international race. The delegation will travel and compete, all expenses paid for, with pocket money, and their needs are taken care of. Apart from this, runners who successfully finish in any of the top three overall spots in their respective category will not only bring home the race prizes but also receive a bonus cash prize from 7-Eleven Philippines.

This is the first time that Philippine Seven Corporation will be sending a Team 7-Eleven Philippines delegation to an international race again after taking a two-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.” 7-Eleven Philippines will continue with its grass-roots program to nurture and support our Filipino runners who aspire to get the chance to represent the country in an international race,” shared 7-Eleven General Merchandise Division Head and Managing Director for Digital, Mr. Jose C. Ang Jr.

The delegation, composed of the 16 Filipino elite runners together with executives from Philippine Seven Corporation, is scheduled to leave for Vietnam on Friday, December 9, 2022. This gives the runners enough time to get settled and prepare for the race on Sunday, December 11, 2022.

Take a look at some of the memories from the last Team 7-Eleven International race last 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

It’s the new year and as I look back, I realise that there were a lot of things that I usually do as a runner and a blogger that I have missed and not have done as much from the past year. As I look ahead and set goals for this new year, I resolved to try to get back to doing these things again even on a “piece-meal” basis. 🙂 Good vibes eh? You bet!
