” We were part of the first group to try out the newly expanded trail in Filinvest last year. It’s one of the most accessible trails conveniently located at Filinvest City, which despite its urban landscape has been closely attached to nature. Urban Trail Run takes you 15 kilometers into Filinvest trails, which combines the forest trails and the urban setting. ”
When you say trails, you get the thought of far flung areas where you have to trek a significant amount of elevation and get treated to a scenic view. Filinvest changes that since it’s easily accessible being just 15 to 20 minutes away from Makati via the Skyway. It retains the refreshing forest view of the trails with a rolling terrain across the course. Get ready to run on different surfaces from dirt roads, trails, forest tracks and concrete roads with both the lush green natural landscape that makes Filinvest a Garden City and the high rise buildings that also makes Filinvest one of the more advanced cities in Metro Manila. Filinvest would also give you scenic views coming from both the trail and the road.
This is a NEWBIE friendly course with moderate elevation. Don’t be intimidate by the distance as 15 kilometers on trail is more refreshing that it is on the road. This would also be a more relaxing environment and DO take your time enjoying the trails to have a better appreciation of the views. Aside from the scenic delight you get on the trail, you’ll also get a nice finisher medal to reward your effort. Filinvest would also be a great place to bond for family and friends so run with them as this would be a feel good run and a perfect time to bond while enjoying the route. This is an intimate run with about a thousand runners doing the distance. Register early and get ready to be treated by the views of Filinvest.
