Endurance Weekend 2016

Three years ago, premiere property developer Filinvest started something that would test the will and skill of many endurance athletes… runners/ultrarunners, triathletes, mountain/xc bikers heeded the challenge of racing for 6-12-24hours. The objective is to do as many laps as you can, on a race course designed to give each athlete a tough and challenging experience. At first glance, one would think it would be easy…running/riding on a single track trail that hops from one vacant lot to another is just like strolling in the park. But when done multiple times, with competitors literally breatjing down your neck, that’s when pressure sets in.  

Participants need to strategize…when to rest or take a break, when to refuel (eat), and when to kick it up a notch to outlast the others.
As Don Ubaldo, Filinvest AVP has said…we already did it three times (years), but guess what? We never learn from our “foolishness” that’s why we’re doing it again (LOL)…eliciting laughter from the athletes and media, present at the event launch held at the Crimson Hotel.

This year though, it will strictly be a mountain bike race. Top individual athletes such as XC champ Ariana Dormitorio, dad/coach Donjie, and teams from all over town are once again eager to showcase their wares in this one of a kind test of will and character. Uncertain of who will emerge as King/Queen of the urban trails…excited on who would come out on top? Join this year’s Endurance Weekend 2016, to be held on 8-9 October at the Filinvest City in Alabang.
