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.

To complete registration, runners can pay reg fees at the 7-Eleven nearest them. Take note of the 7-Connect number and pay at any 7-Eleven store within 24 hours. Race Kits can be claimed on the date indicated on the receipt, and from the same store where payment has been made.

Wave Start:

Wave Starts have been adapted from the New York Marathon to give runners a better running experience. Here’s how it works: runners of approximately the same caliber are grouped together in a pack of up to 5,000 runners. “Waves” are released at set time intervals. This prevents slamming into other runners caused by crowding especially in high volume races joined by 20,000- 50,000 runners. Being guided with wave start times also help in reducing waiting times.With the 7-Eleven Wave Start system, runners can even choose which wave they want to start in. This gives more flexibility for runners instead of being automatically sorted by the system. Runners can choose to run with their friends or family, or choose to run competitively.See the race start times for the wave you want to join. Some notes:

  1. Arrive 30 minutes early of your wave start time. If you arrive late, you will be bumped off to the last wave.

  2. On the registration page, only Wave Starts with vacant slots may be selected. So register early if you plan to run with people you know (no need to register at the same time)
  3. Definition of Race Groups (specifically for 3k up to 10K): COMPETITIVE – you are going for speed, ADVANCED – you’ve done races before, BEGINNER/CASUAL – its your first or second time to race.
