  1. Run as many laps as you WANT in 12-Hours. Last lap to be completed by 12-HRs. the runner with the most number of laps in a 12 hour period will win the race.
  2. 1 lap is 3.2km
  3. Minimum laps requirement for each racer to be considered a finisher is 12 laps.
  4. PARADE LAP: thins the runners out before you enter the course.
  5. Racers can stop any time they want but they have to notify the timer if they wish to take an extended break or withdraw from the race.
  6. Hydration is REQUIRED on the Course at ALL times. Each runner must carry all their own food, fluids and other supplies needed for use between aid stations
  7. There will be one aid station at the activity area and 1 water refilling station at the 1.5km mark in the course.
  8. Runners may not accept aid from their support crew or any other source while on the course and in between aid stations and designated support locations, except in case of a medical emergency.
  9. Runners must wear their official race number on the front of their singlet, where it must be visible at all times. Timing chip must be worn on the ankle.
  10. Absolutely no littering
  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)

  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

*** 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.

Filinvest City is a prime development of Filinvest, a leader in property development for over fifty years. Guided by the Gotianun family’s tradition of integrity, quality and service, it forges ahead with renewed dynamism. Filinvest is committed to making the Filipino dream.
