First staged in 2013, The Filinvest City Endurance Weekend is an exciting two-day MTB event unlike any other as it challenges riders – either in solo and team categories – to push themselves to the limit in the 6-hour, 12-hour, or 24-hour race spans that are very much a test of skill, endurance, and strength.

Is there a training plan for a 24-hour cycling race?

That Filinvest City serves as the race venue has become even more relevant and fitting with the recent introduction of bike lanes and trails, the latter a feature that cannot be found in other CBDs. Already, bikers of all backgrounds are taking advantage of these amenities, not only on weekends but also during the work week, making Filinvest City a true bike-friendly CBD.

Apart from an exclusive medal for all finishers and winners, generous cash prizes also await winners in the various race categories.

My endurance will be put to the test in November because I just signed up for the 3-hour trail run category of Filinvest City Endurance Weekend 2014. I think it’s crazy – it’s on a 3-km loop! My sanity and patience will be put to the test, too.
