Endurance Weekend 2016 – October 8 to 9

Filinvest City’s annual Endurance Weekend event is back for its fourth outing and will be held from October 8 to 9. The event which is expected to draw about 500 participants, is an endurance mountain biking race which will feature new trails and routes for its three categories – 24 hours, 12 hours and six hours.

The event is part of Filinvest City’s program to encourage people into the active lifestyle to make Filinvest City one of their go-to training hubs. The area is also known for their bike and run routes and the weekly car-less Sundays where portions of Filinvest City are closed to vehicles from 5AM to 10AM every Sunday to give people a venue to engage in various outdoor activities.

RACE COURSE MAP:

RACE COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The course is a loop course of up to 6.2KM consisting of single-track and asphalt roads. It will be marked by the use of a mixture of arrows, buntings, and traffic cones.

There will be sections throughout the course where there are no markings.

There will be no decision points either – just keep riding. At the end of each lap the course passes through Transition Zone.

RACE GUIDELINES:

Control Point. There will be at least one control point out on the course. It will be manned for the full 24 hours and race numbers will be checked. To assist, please call out your race number to the control point team. Additional spot checkpoints may be positioned at random locations. The control point will have radio contact with the Race HQ

Race Numbers. Each rider is given an individual race number. This must be attached to the seatpost of the bike. In order for your lap to be timed and counted you must ensure that your race number is visible. Do not deface, or trim the race number.

The Transition Zone (TZ) is the only area where you can exit the race course. This is also where teams swap riders and hand over the band. Spectators are not permitted in the TZ. As you come through the TZ, here are a few simple rules to make life easier for everyone –

  • WALK, WALK,WALK (there is no riding in the TZ)
  • Call out your number to the timing crew to assist in recording your lap
  • Help your teammate with the transition
  • After you have completed the transition, VERY promptly clear the area and move outside the TZ to catch your breath, have a chat or warm down

Finishers. All teams or individuals must complete the minimum number of laps to be counted as a finisher.

Minimum Number of Laps:
SOLO:

  • 24 Hour: 24 laps
  • 12 Hour: 12 laps
  • 6 Hour: 6 laps

TEAM:

  • 24 Hour Teams of 3: 8 laps per member
  • 12 Hour Teams of 2: 6 laps per member
