Starts from the Oblation on our way out to University Avenue, then turn right to Commonwealth Avenue. From Commonwealth, turn right to Batasan Road and make a U-turn when reaching the back of Batasan Pambansa on the way back to Commonwealth. From Commonwealth, turn right on the road that leads to the La Mesa Eco Park.

Please note that access to the route inside the Park is still yet to be checked, otherwise, runners have to run the peripheral roads outside of the exact route. Exit again at Commonwealth and turn right to Regalado Avenue on the way to SM Fairview then turn right to Quirino Highway and make a U-turn after 2 KMs on the way back.

Runners who only wish to run the 21K route can do so by going back to Commonwealth Avenue after the turn around at the back of Batasang Pampansa and towards North Avenue. For those who will not be able to run the whole 25-35KM stretch, there are always public transportation that will take you back to Philcoa and UP.

Runners should bring their own fuel, hydration belts, belt bag-pouch, hand held water bottle, camel backpack, bars, gels. Grocery and other convenience stores are available along the route.
