7-Eleven Run 2019 awards runners from Manila, Cebu, and Davao

The country’s go-to convenience chain, 7-Eleven, officially marked its seventh year of promoting health among its consumers through a fun-filled sports and wellness activity, the 7-Eleven Run.

 

7-Eleven Run 2019 brought together professional and recreational runners from different parts of the country into a nationwide gathering, where they showcased their love for the sport while spending time with friends and family. The event took place in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao last February 3, 2019.

 

 

 

This is the second year that the company held the 7-Eleven Run simultaneously throughout the country. In 2018, over 25,000 participants joined the event as they vied for a podium finish.

 

Races were held at Filinvest City, Alabang, Cebu Business Park, and SM Davao. The race in Manila and Cebu both had 10 different categories that catered to all types of runners: 500M, 3K, 5K, 5K Buddy, 10K, 10K Buddy, 16K, 21K, 32K, and 42K. On the other hand, the race in Davao, had only 9 categories, excluding 500M.

 

The overall top 3 Filipino winners from the 42K, 32K, and 21K categories will be participating at the Phuket International Marathon in Thailand from June 7 to 10, 2019.

BGC Arts Center Launches Pinoy Playlist 2018

An annual music festival showcasing the tapestry of Filipino Musicality curated by Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, Moy Ortiz, and Noel Ferrer.

 

Music is the architecture of the Filipino soul; it has scored our personal and collective lives through the ages. While many things divide us, we Filipinos hold music as the deep common denominator of our “Filipino-ness”. It is time we have a collective celebration of Filipino music – harvest its nourishing past, revel in its present forms, and also innovate by fusing past and present across musical genres of Filipino music.

For 6 days in October this year, October 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 and 20, 2018, the BGC Arts Center will launch a landmark festival: “Pinoy Playlist 2018, Ito ay Atin, Sariling Atin”.  Made possible with the support of Sun Life Foundation, it will be the first of an annual Music Festival curated by Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, Moy Ortiz, and Noel Ferrer. The festival will gather great music being generated and appreciated in pockets of ages and places, collectively showcase them, and hopefully serve to inspire the collective rise of Filipino music.

Pinoy Playlist will ​reinvigorate the tradition of Filipino music by exposing the breadth and range of Filipino musicality across time, from vocal groups, solo, bands, classic, indigenous, pop, and collaborations in between these forms of musicality, to celebrate the evolving nature of Filipino music. ​The matrix of Filipino music will shine in its variety and blaze with the talent of artists across generations.

“Pinoy Playlist 2018, Ito ay Atin, Sariling Atin” is a labor of love of the Pinoy Playlist curators of whom the BGC Arts Center is immensely proud and grateful to be working with.

Maestro Ryan Cayabyab composer and conductor, is among the supernova standard bearers of Filipino music. His works range from commissioned full-length ballets, theater musicals, choral pieces, a Mass set to unaccompanied chorus, and orchestral pieces, to commercial recordings of popular music, film scores and television specials. He got involved with Pinoy Playlist because he says: “At the end of the day, nothing compares to coming together to experience the rich tapestry of homegrown Pinoy music.”

Noel Ferrer is a respected writer, critic, talent manager, producer of award winning films and television shows. He has published the groundbreaking book on the making of stars and celebrities in the Philippines through Anvil Publishing. He is also the official spokesperson and education committee head of the Metro Manila Film Festival as well as an active member of the Entertainment Troika of the Philippine Entertainment Portal. Working to make Pinoy Playlist happen, he said: “There is Cinemalaya and other indie film festivals and of course the MMFF for cinema; there is Virgin LabFest and before a National Theater Festival; it is important that there is common ground in Pinoy Playlist featuring all genres, all kinds of artists in their most creative concert formats to showcase the best in Filipino music.”

Moy Ortiz has been singing harmony all his life––from his earliest years in primary school to his final year in the Ateneo. He is one of the original and founding members of the country’s premier vocal group, The Company, of which he is the artistic and musical director. Moy is also an award-winning composer, arranger, and producer. He also teaches classes and workshops at Mint College and Trumpets Playshop respectively. On his motivation behind realizing Pinoy Playlist, he said: “We need to acknowledge, honor and celebrate Filipino music in all its forms.”

BGC Arts Center Head of Content, Maria Isabel Garcia maintains this would not have happened without those who care for Pinoy music with their lives: The BGC Arts Center is passionately committed to create and celebrate Filipino stories of creativity and there is nothing like music to inhabit those stories. We applaud the passion and work of our curators and the over 100 Filipino musicians and production teams who finely tuned into the Pinoy Playlist idea and contribute to the evolving tapestry of Pinoy Music.”

Tickets ranging from P330 to P2,250, are now available at all TicketWorld outlets and website: www.ticketworld.com.ph
