Join 7-Eleven Trail 1000!
To celebrate its 1000th store in the Philippines, 7-Eleven is holding its first ever mountain bike race on February 23, 2014 in the trails of San Mateo, Rizal, with assembly at Timberland Heights. In keeping with the spirit of its previous sporting events such as Tour 700 and Run 1000, the objective of Trail 1000 is a large, well-organized race on a scenic, single-loop course that is fun to ride but not always accessible.
The closed course is approximately 30km long, with 700m of climbing, and consists of mostly single-track (including 7km of new or otherwise inaccessible trails), some fire road, and two road climbs. The route was chosen to reward both climbing ability and bike handling skills.
To accommodate the expected large number of riders, wave starts will be used, with groups of approximately 100 riders being released at set intervals, with fastest waves released first. Waves will close when full, so participants are encouraged to register early.

Race shirts will be given free to the first 1,000 registrants and all finishers will receive a medal. Cash prizes of as much as 20,000 will be given to the Top 3 finishers per category.
Last day of registration is on February 10, 2014.
