The Takbo.ph Runners will be having its monthly LSD (Long Slow Distance) Run this coming Sunday, April 26, 2009 at Sitio Parawagan, Rodriguez (Montalban). The run will cover a distance of 15 to 20 kilometers passing along the beautiful mountain trails of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
Assembly will be at Jolibee-Philcoa. Here are the details:
4:30 – 4:45 – meet up at jolibee, philcoa
4:50 – we leave for san mateo-montalban
5:10 – 5:20 – arrive at wawa, rodriguez (dead-end road
before reaching Wawa Dam)
5:30 – start our run
There’s a wide space in front of the Tourism Office where you can park your vehicles.
All runners should bring their own fuel/hydration belts/ belt bag-pouch/ hand held water bottle/ camel backpack, bars/gels because water and food will not be available along the route. The terrain is rolling to mountainous and the surface is a combination of asphalt, dirt, sand, hard clay, soft gravel, etc. You don’t necessarily have to wear a Trail or an All-Terrain Running Shoe. Your regular running shoes will do as long as the out-soles are not so worn-out.
After the run at about 8:00-9:00am at the most, we can have breakfast at one of the various food joints there at Wawa (take note that the eateries are frequented by bikers who are mostly from metro manila). Thereafter, you can take your time in visiting Wawa Dam to take pictures.
For those who are planning to run the TNF 10k/20k or 100k Sacobia Trail Run at Clark, this will be an excellent practice run specially to those who are not yet acquainted with trail running.
