Two years ago, I joined the 21k of 711 Run 800 held at Aseana, Pasay City with the route going all the way to Cavitex. Last year, 711 Run1000 was held at the same venue, where I joined the 5k category. This year, 711 run is back with new surprises for all of us runners. The race is now going to be held in the Skyway at Filinvest Alabang and now offering a full marathon category, a 10k buddy run and a 500m dash for kids.
Also this year, the top 3 male & female Filipino winners of the 42k & 21k will be sent to the Laguna Phuket International Marathon in Thailand to represent our country. Previous winners of 711 Run series have been sent to the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon in Cambodia and Seoul Race in South Korea.
The 711 Run Series are held in celebration of their store opening milestones, RUN 800 to celebrate 800 stores in the Philippines, RUN 1000 to celebrate 1000 stores and this year, RUN 1500 in anticipation of opening its 1,500th store in the country.
