7-Eleven Run 2019

Happening simultaneously in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao on February 3, 2019, 7-Eleven Run 2019 promises to be an exciting event for both professional and recreational runners. The race was first held simultaneously in 3 locations across the country last 2018, with over 25,000 runners participating. This year promises to be even bigger, better and more exciting. Runners can expect to see new race categories, a chance to compete in an international Asian marathon, and even have the opportunity to win P500,000 cash.

The race in Luzon will be held in Filinvest City, Alabang. The Visayas leg will be held at Cebu Business Park, while the Mindanao leg will be in SM City Davao.

This year, runners will see new distances that will challenge experienced and novice runners alike. 7-Eleven is introducing the 32K category. Runners also have other options: from a short 500 meter run for kids, a 10K buddy category, and up to a 42K full marathon.


As always, 7-Eleven continues to support Filipino athletes. This year, the overall top 3 Filipino winners for 21K, 32K, and 42K will be awarded cash prizes and medals, plus a chance to join an international marathon in Asia, all expenses paid. Last year, winners of the 21K and 42K races from 7-Eleven Run Series 2018 were sent to Jeju, South Korea to compete at the 23rd Jeju International Tourism Marathon Festival where they dominated the top spots in their respective race categories.


To further encourage the spirit of competition, 7-Eleven will be giving away a bonus cash prize to the top Filipino runner who can beat the Philippine record for the 42K category. The record setter will get to take home P500,000 in cash.


Registration is now open until January 15, 2019. Be sure to visit the official website at https://run711.com/ and follow its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/run711 for more information about the race.

Over 7,000 runners joined McDonald’s Stripes Run 2018

Last December 2, 2018, McDonald’s continued its commitment to help children learn how to read through Stripes Run 2018. Now on its 9th year, Stripes Run brought together family and friends in its annual run for reading, which was held at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds.

Wearing the iconic red and white striped socks, thousands of runners also enjoyed a morning of fun games and activities around the race village. The run ended on a high note with a star-studded awarding session where McDonald’s endorsers Alden Richards, Maine Mendoza, and Gabby Concepcion joined hosts Atom Araullo and Jackie Lou Blanco. Runners were also excited to see GMA artists Rayver Cruz, Janine Gutierrez, and Camille Prats with her husband John Yambao and son Nathan, who were present at the run to show their support for the advocacy. Kids of all ages got to experience a live reading session given by Kapuso celebrity mom, Chynna Ortaleza with her husband, singer Kean Cipriano and their daughter, Stellar along with McDonald’s Chief Happiness Officer, Ronald McDonald.

Through McDonald’s Stripes Run, P2 million was donated to Ronald McDonald Read to Learn, a beginning reading program of the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) which aims to improve the literacy skills of Grades 1 and 2 public school students while they are in the early stages of learning. To date, the Read to Learn program has enrolled close to 10,000 partner schools nationwide— reaching more than 12 million students.

“With McDonald's Stripes Run, we are able to strengthen our commitment to families, by giving kids and their parents an event where they can spend a day of active play together and contribute to a great cause at the same time. We're grateful for the continuous support we get from Stripes Run participants every year, and we hope they also extend that support to all our other advocates," said McDonald’s Philippines Marketing Director Christina Lao.
