Filinvest City Endurance Weekend 2016

Filinvest City,  the “master-planned urban center and central business district in Alabang”, brings us this year’s Endurance Weekend on October 8 and 9. This is an annual MTB race with three main categories: 24-Hour, 12-Hour and 6-Hour races.

The MTB race will start at Pacific Rim, Filinvest City, Alabang. The race course is a loop course of up to 6.2KM consisting of single-track and asphalt roads. It will be marked by the use of a mixture of arrows, buntings, and traffic cones. There will be sections throughout the course where there are no markings. There will be no decision points either – just keep riding. At the end of each lap the course passes through Transition Zone.

The Transition Zone (TZ) is the only area where you can exit the race course. This is also where teams swap riders and hand over the band. Spectators are not permitted in the TZ. As you come through the TZ, here are a few simple rules to make life easier for everyone:

  1. WALK, WALK,WALK (there is no riding in the TZ);
  2. call out your number to the timing crew to assist in recording your lap;
  3. help your team mate with the transition; and
  4. after you have completed the transition, VERY promptly clear the area and move outside the TZ to catch your breath, have a chat or warm down.

There will be at least one control point out on the course. It will be manned for the full 24 hours and race numbers will be checked. To assist, please call out your race number to the control point team. Additional spot checkpoints may be positioned at random locations. The control point will have radio contact with the Race HQ.

Participants/Teams are allowed to set up their own tents in the expo area. Parking will be at Laguna Heights Drive (near Palms Pointe).

Each rider is given an individual race number. This must be attached to the seatpost of the bike. In order for your lap to be timed and counted you must ensure that your race number is visible. Do not deface, or trim the race number.
