If you are doing the Marikina Half… here’s a quick sneak preview.
The course is relatively flat. The only uphill is the part from Marikina to Katipunan. This is a bit challenging because this is going to be in the first 3kms or so. After reaching Katipunan, everything should be relatively
easy. There is also a very long downhill stretch between Batasan and JP Rizal. Great timing because this will give us a chance to rest our legs a bit before we sprint or crawl to the last kms before the finish line.
We will have very little shade so expect to burn baby burn. Please feel free to do a virtual 1-minute rain dance with me.
When we cross bridge the along Batasan, glance to your right and enjoy a great view of the mountains … I think its Antipolo.
Be prepared for the jeepneys especially along Commonwealth. Since this is a Bayani event, I’m hoping that MMDA will provide assistance to the race marshals. And no need to freak out when running with the jeepneys kasi … Basta jeepney driver, Sweet Lover di ba.
I might not have planned to join this race but I do plan to enjoy this new and challenging route.
Hope to see you there!
