Finishline’s ROAD X-TRAIL Series

Towards the end of November this year, Finishline, the running events organizing company which brought to us some of the memorable races of the past year (Greenfield City Nioght Run, Globe Run For Home, Neutrogena Run, etc.) was relaunched. Based on the materials sent to me (I so regret having failed to attend the launch!), I had the impression that Finishline is aiming to widen their reach which now will go beyond organizing running races and will now include cycling races – be it on the road or off-road (me likey!).

In my opinion, this is one great decision for Finishline considering that there are not much organized races being held in relation to mtbiking. These kind of sport, aside from running has it’s “population” also growing in numbers and it will be great to have a lot of mtbiking races to choose from.

Together with the relaunch of Finishline was the launching of their own brand of sporting series – the InMotion Road X Trail Series. This series, which include cycling, running, and duathlon, was supposed to be a great year-ender event but was then moved to be Finishline’s initial offering for the year 2011.

Let me now share to you folks the updated details of this event:

IN-MOTION: ROAD X TRAIL SERIES by FINISHLINE

DESCRIPTION

ROAD X TRAIL (“Road Times Trail”) leg will be the launching pad of Finishline, In-Motion series and MyChip Sports Timing.

ROAD X TRAIL will include Cycling, Running, and Duathlon – 3 races in separate dates.

Under each sports discipline, Finishline will be the first to offer two separate race routes (road and off-road) in one day. This means that participants may choose to join either road or off-road race.

TARGET MARKET

Primary: for the longer distance race categories, we are targeting regular participants (elites and intermediates) of duathlon, cycling (mountain bikers and road bikers), running (trail and road runners)
Secondary: We will also target beginners and anyone interested in trying out new sports / muli-sports by offering shorter distance categories. Majority of them are either doing only running or cycling.

OBJECTIVES

• To introduce other sports to those who are limited to joining either running or cycling events only but would like to try other sports or combination of both.
• To offer a multi-discipline event designed to appeal not only to experienced competitors but to newbies as well.
• To showcase different sports disciplines in an accessible and spectator-friendly format.
