Endurance Weekend 2013
Filinvest City, Alabang
September 14-15, 2013
Filinvest City aggressively announced the first ENDURANCE race of the year dubbed “Endurance Weekend 2013” to be held at Filinvest City. This race is definitely not for everybody but for everybody who would want to test their endurance skills in running and biking the trail. Endurance races set to complete a certain distance and you have to do it as much distance as possible over a preset amount of time.
I tried the 24-hour mountain biking race couple of times (naks! ako na talaga) and believe me it was not easy, in either solo or group category. If you are aspiring to join future endurance races, this is the best time to test yourself.
I haven’t tried endurance races for trail running yet, but hope I can do it someday.

ENDURANCE WEEKEND 12 HOURS MTB RACE
1) 12 hour teams and 12 hour solos ride from 6am – 6pm
2) One lap of the main course is a loop of about 3.5 km.
3) PARADE LAP: thins the riders out before they enter the course.
4) Minimum lap Requirement:
- Team members: 10 laps each
- Solo riders: 15 laps
5) Only one rider from each team goes round the course at any one time
6) Team‟s decide what order their team members ride in and how many laps each team member riders –
all members of the team must ride at least one lap
7) Each team member gets their own race number (if you change bikes during the race it is up to you to
move your race number to your new bike)
8) Each team gets a team “Reusable Timing tag” that must be worn on the rider‟s ankle. Each team
member will have their own timing tag the must be put on their bike‟s seat post.
9) It‟s highly recommended that each team or solo rider bring their own support crew.
10) Riders in each team „change’ over at their transition site where they change timing tag that is worn by
the rider during their whole lap.
11) The rider on the course is timed when they have completed their lap
12) The idea is to complete as many laps as possible in the 12 hours, the teams in each category who do
the most laps WIN!!
13) Teams and solo riders finishing a lap before 12 noon may still start another lap, as long as they start before 24:00:00 on the official race clock. This lap will count with respect to time and laps completed.
14) The time and number of laps completed by each team or solo will determine their finishing order.
15) In case of a tie in laps, the team or solo rider who finishes their last lap first will beat those who finish behind them (Team that has completed 28 laps with a finish time of 12:31pm would beat a team that
completed 28 laps, finishing at 12:47pm. And of course, a team that completed 29 laps, finishing at
12:50pm would beat them both.)
16) Scratching a Rider: In the event that a team loses one of its teammates due to illness, injury or exhaustion, that team may elect to “scratch” that rider from the team and continue with the race. However, the team will be listed as DNF. Also, if a team member did not meet his or her lap requirements, then that team is also listed as DNF

around the venue area.
