Baggage & Parking Information :
There will be ample parking space during the event. Baggage counters will be situated near the Start/Finish line at Fort Santiago.
Gears : This will be a green event, meaning, cups will not be provided at the hydration station so you need to bring your own water bottles or hydration belts.
If you're looking for new shoes, do consider, Salomon X-Scream. These colorful shoes are designed for those who do a combination of mountain and road running. It retails at P6,490.00 and is available in Salomon Stores in Glorietta 3, SM Aura, SM Megamall & R.O.X. Bonifacio High Street.
