First Intersection Keep Right

There are at least two river/stream crossings along the route. One is not too deep but the other one is waist-deep when one has the intention to make a dip into the river. One can cross both streams without ones shoes being wet.

If ever you reach this Bataan Death March (BDM) Kilometer Post in Bagac, it means that you covered a distance of 45 Kilometers. One has to pass this Kilometer Post towards the Phil-Japan Friendship Tower and reach the 2nd BDM Post along the Bagac-Pilar Highway from the BDM Km Post 00 and then turn-around back to this BDM Km Post for the Finish.

BR, looks like another good race course. Just the right distance, not too long. I wish I was there to run in it. Maybe one of these days. Have a good one and thanks for all you do for our running/walking activities.
