True to its commitment to inspire fun, Filinvest took the playing field to the next level by hosting the 2013 Vaseline Men XTERRA Mud Run on May 26, 2013 at the newly-expanded Open Trails within Filinvest City that gathered over 1,000 runners that went through specially designed obstacles that tested their physical skills and endurance.
Among those who joined the Mud Run is the Vice President for Filinvest Alabang Incorporated, Mr. Michael Gotianun, who expressed his enthusiasm after crossing the finish line, “There are even places that even I have just discovered only today. I love nature, which is basically what we have here in Filinvest City.”
The 2013 Vaseline XTERRA 10k men’s category was ruled by 22 year-old Roger Denolo from UST. On the other hand, women’s 10k category was dominated by St. Claire College of Caloocan’s Janette Lumidaw.
The Organizers for the Vaseline Men XTERRA Mud Run cited that one factor they considered in choosing Filinvest City as the official venue is the unique adventure experience that it offers. Being an urban garden city that promotes a well-balanced healthy lifestyle, Filinvest City perfectly matches the organizer’s preference of weaving road running, theme running and trail running as a formula for a complete runner’s haven.
Part of its effort to support a healthy lifestyle is the “Carless Sundays,” which closes one side of the City Loop (Commerce-Corporate-Parkway-Filinvest Avenues) from 5am to 10am, offering a secured biking and running experience for all enthusiasts. Promote wellness; free exercise sessions are also being conducted by fitness instructors every Sunday morning at the Promenade Avenue.
As a fully integrated and self-contained community committed to inspire possibilities, Filinvest City eyes more sporting events to host in the future. This is Filinvest City: Inspiring convergence of the concept of work, live, and play.
