**Things to Remember:

  1. Each runner must provide himself with his hydration gear that can hold water supply for at least 15k. Aid Stations are located at Km#8-9 & Km#16-17; Km# 33-34 and Km # 42-43. There are faucets at the Crater Park where you can refill your hydration gears.
  2. Prepare your drop bags (for your supplies). Make sure to label them with the following: runner’s name, race number, and Aid Station Number/Km Point where it will be available.
  3. Bring a First Aid Kit. This is a MUST and it is a ground for Disqualification if a runner is without this basic requirement. The First Aid Kit should consist enough cotton, sanitary gauze, medical adhesive tape, betadyne/iodine, and anti-biotic ointment.
  4. The RD and Race Marshals will be conducting random checks on each runner’s hydration system and the mandatory First Aid Kit along the route. It is mandatory for each runner to show their First Aid Kit as he/she checks-in at the Starting Area.
  5. Since most of the route towards the Mt Pinatubo has no established or designated trail or path due to changing landscape as a result water & earth movements, the runner can improvise or have his/her own personal choice in establishing his/her direction towards the crater. The rule of thumb for the direction towards the crater is ALWAYS STAY ON THE LEFT PART OF THE EXPOSED AREA going southerly direction.
