Press release:


Whether running on foot or wheezing by through a mountain bike, the racer, once in a competition, seems to be oblivious to the surrounding sights. But participants to “Filinvest City Endurance Weekend 2013” will be hard pressed not to take stock of the view enveloping the course of this one-of-a-kind run.

On September 14 and 15, 2013, running and racing enthusiasts, both men and women, will be treated to one of the most picturesque race courses within the metro as they go through Filinvest City‟s varied terrain. Participants may compete in several age groups as well a mixed category in the mountain bike race. The registration fee includes a race packet (consisting of a bib number, pins, bike number, bike and helmet sticker), race shirt, finisher‟s medal, hydration, and lunch.

Filinvest City‟s well-planned environment presents a variety of relaxing sights. There are grassy hills with tended foliage that serves as parks and pocket hubs of greenery. The course will also take them to hiking trails and promenades lined with trees of mostly Philippine hardwood, and avenues lined with stately palms and shady trees.

“By staging the „Filinvest City Endurance Weekend 2013‟ we believe we are encouraging more people to go out and give the body some form of physical activity—which is a healthy way to de-stress, In the process, we hope we are fostering a more respectful regard for nature” says Filinvest City‟s project head, Mr. Don Ubaldo.
